Conservative website Parler.com (which we’re pretty sure was not meant to have started that way despite its backers) is set to find itself banned from Amazon AWS and its hosting services. Over the weekend, Amazon joined the long list of companies abandoning networks or associations that come close to promoting and or cheering on the illegal terrorism that took place in the Capitol.

According to Variety, Amazon made the announcement on Saturday.

“AWS provides technology and services to customers across the political spectrum, and we continue to respect Parler’s right to determine for itself what content it will allow on its site,” the Amazon notice to Parler said in part. “However, we cannot provide services to a customer that is unable to effectively identify and remove content that encourages or incites violence against others. Because Parler cannot comply with our terms of service and poses a very real risk to public safety, we plan to suspend Parler’s account effective Sunday, January 10th, at 11:59 PM PST.”
