Amazon employees call for company to cut ties with Parler after deadly U.S. Capitol riot

A group of Amazon corporate employees is calling on the company to stop providing cloud services to Parler, a social media app popular with Trump supporters.

In a tweet on Saturday, employee advocacy group Amazon Employees for Climate Justice said Amazon Web Services should “deny Parler services until it removes posts inciting violence, including at the Presidential inauguration.” AWS provides cloud services to Parler that host its website.

Representatives from Amazon and Parler didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.

Pressure has been mounting for Amazon to stop hosting Parler on AWS after other tech giants took action against the social media app in the wake of the deadly U.S. Capitol riot earlier this week. Google on Friday removed Parler from its app store for Android users, Google Play Store. BuzzFeed News reported on Friday that Apple has threatened to pull Parler from its App Store.

Stop buying from Amazon. If you compare prices, most of the time Amazon is not the best value.

“Stop buying from Amazon. If you compare prices, most of the time Amazon is not the best value.”

Just imagine if the 75,000,000 that voted for Trump stopped buying from them. It is time to make a list and follow it.

I have already made a list and posted in comments.
Get off Google, Facebook, twittter, and stop buying from Amazon, Walmart and quit watching Anything on Fox but Tucker until he is compromised (he is already changing on big Pharma). I have quit for years. It’s very liberating to buy local or order from known conservative companies.
And for Gods sake quit supporting anything with the GOP. How many times do you have to be beat up before you leave. Support only individuals. We have to put down the traitors like The worst, Nikki Haley and Liz Cheney, Rubio, Tillis, Burr, Lindsay Graham, McConnel and his traitor wife, all of the Bushes., Romney, Thune, etc.
