Not surprisingly! Parler was de-platformed by the Marxist Cancel Culture! Because it offered a place for conservatives to talk freely.
Yes, Parler was used in planning the riots of January 6th. But, so were Twitter and Facebook! Yet, Parler alone was singled out!
Making it obvious that the Marxists had Parler on their radar for de-platforming beforehand, and the riots were an excuse. Put there even before Democrats plan to turn the riots into a false TV insurrection spectacle.
Nevertheless, Parler’s strong comeback is a warning for the Marxist Cancel Culture. Deception will come back later to bite them!
Here, I updated an important article because of the ingenuity and determination of Parler to return from their Cancel Culture de-platforming two years ago. It is still both a model and a warning for all Conservative business owners.
Why did Parler’s built a free speech platform?
Parler was built out of a dire need for a free-speech platform. Because Twitter and Facebook had canceled the accounts of so many conservatives for their political views.
When Parler was founded, Amazon’s role as a global Marxist government member was not understood. And so, Parler fell into a trap!
They hosted their free speech platform with an American corporation that does not believe in free speech.
Parler began as any other entrepreneurial enterprise — to fill a need. Even back as the beginnings of Trump’s presidency, it was obvious there was a need to get out conservative viewpoints. Here we drop in on the founder John Matze and Parler’s early days canceling Marxist bots.
No doubt the investors were genuine Patriots who also saw Parler as also a money-making machine. After all, tens of millions of motivated, online Patriots had nowhere else to go.
What were the results of Parler’s de-platforming by Amazon?
Parler found another hosting provider offering similar private, cloud-based hosting like Amazon. But, this time it has a CEO who believes in free speech. The results are that Parler is more secure and Amazon is minus a $300,000 thousand a month customer.
And, it looks like Parler is looking at near-future improvements that the globalist Amazon (AWS) never would have allowed. In other words, short-term problems are solved with long-term answers.
For example, Parler and Gab are now looking at partnering to form a conservative online banking processing services company.
Amazon (AWS) hosting is exposed as a Marxist organization.
Amazon hosted both Parler and Twitter at one time, and both were used by conservatives for planning the Jan. 6th riots. Yet, only Parler was de-platformed!
Amazon was therefore exposed as a globalists or communists corporation. And, in the following months, many more American global corporations “came out of the closet.”
Google and Apple de-list Parler’s apps.
In addition to losing their Amazon hosting, Google and Apple delisted them from their App Stores. Plus, their online banking merchant also canceled their account.
Nothing unexpected here as they had already demonstrated their anti-American stances. With their censorship and shadow banning of conservative platforms and user accounts.
The savagery of their “cancel” attack on Parler foretold the future. Many more came but the Marxist switched to canceling conservatives from Twitter and Facebook. And shadow-banning them on Google Search.
Patriots flee big-tech in droves!
After Parler’s de-platforming, conservatives felt disgusted and fearful. This was a final straw for millions of users! It’s when the BIG migration away from Big Tech began in earnest!
Instead, sites like Gab and Marxist run conservative sites recorded record growth! Too bad! Because most ran too fast and never checked out the pedigree of the sites that they place so much confidence.
There is no doubt that Parler scrambled to get back online. Meanwhile, the Marxist Operation Mockingbird press was in full swing putting out false information.
Users of Big Tech services were left to talk among themselves while thinking the mouths of conservatives were shut!
However, in the end, Parler came back online stronger and more secure. Let’s see how a strong dose of reality dramatically changed Parler.
The HUGE challenge of moving Parler’s private, cloud-based Amazon platform
Parler had 30 hours to find and move their data from Amazon (AWS). That was impossible. And, Amazon knew it!
Parler resided within Amazon as a private cloud service. A status that’s impossible to beat for online stability. Yet, difficult to move to new hosting.
Unwilling to take a step backward, they found a boutique hosting service willing to offer a similar service. And so, Parler again has put “all its eggs in one basket.”
Parler gets back online!
When Parler found a way to get online again, you might have thought it was the same. But, behind that Home Screen, is a very different home!
Faced with the same Cancel Culture deplatforming as Gab a few years earlier, Parler found a similar answer.
Parler carves out a secure, sensible network environment (Geeks only)
Parler’s new hosting company, SkySilk is a small boutique hosting company. It’s customers’ data residing within a cloud-based distributed network. In Parler’s case, data resides on the network and within an open-source application called Ceph Storage.
The Ceph storage architecture is flexible and extensible, enabling block storage (Ceph RBD), file system storage using a metadata server (Ceph MDS), and object storage with both Amazon S3 API as well as Openstack Swift API simultaneously using the same pools.
In other words, they have joined Gab in their selection of a distributed network. But, with a private network rather than a public one like Gab. Which one is better is up for debate.
Of course, Gab covers themselves with getting a private license for their open-source software. While Parler has a private, open source license for a private system. If that makes sense to you, then you are a geek!
Unknown contract security
Important, but impossible to determine, we can only hope Parler has a better backup plan in case of de-platforming from SkySilk.
Domain Name moves
Parler moved the domain name Parler from Dreamhost to a more conservative Domain Name reseller called Epik. (Click here for a history of the Parler.com domain name.)
Parler is now back online, but again with “all their eggs in one basket.” Hopefully, this time they have chosen wisely their hosting company. And have a plan for a quick move to another host if necessary.
