“Amazon notified Parler that it would be cutting off the social network favored by conservatives and extremists from its cloud hosting service Amazon Web Services, according to an email obtained by BuzzFeed News. The suspension, which will go into effect on Sunday just before midnight, means that Parler will be unable to operate and will go offline unless it can find another hosting service.
I, for one, condemn the knee capping of Parler.
I have an established account there, and made my first connection with another MAP [twitter refugee] on Parler, just hours before the plug got pulled.
There were still some of us decent people using that platform.
I have no knowledge, whatsoever, of what any MAGA/QAnon right wing loonies were up to…but there are good people using Parler, who don’t deserve losing another platform in this way.

01) Badass French politician stands up for Poland and Hungary
Thanks to feinmann!
“You have no legitimacy to dictate to nations how they should live. The demands of the European institutions violate the very spirit of the European treaties. You have gone from the motto ‘united in diversity’ to ‘centralised in uniformity’. What is at stake is nothing less than an establishment of a government of judges against the will of the people! Poland and Hungary must stand firm!
COMMENT from SUBMITTER:
A breath of fresh air! Salut Nicolas Bay!”
I should say so…and at this point, I don’t even care what the specifics of this guys positions are…
He’s standing up in defense of the foundational rights of the people, and the foundational limits on government set in place to protect those people and their rights.

“DailyMail.com on Monday released the disturbing video in which a MAGA rioter was seen throwing a fire extinguisher into a group of Capitol Police officers.
At the start of the two-minute clip, a fire extinguisher is seen lying on the ground while dozens of police officers work to fight off a mob of Trump supporters surging toward the Capitol building in a futile bid to block Congress from certifying Joe Biden’s election victory.
A protester is then seen picking up the extinguisher and walking toward a throng of fellow rioters clashing with cops.
The video cuts to another protester pushing an officer off the ledge of the building – before the man with the extinguisher comes out of nowhere and launches it at the cops. It bounces off the helmet of one officer before striking another, who falls backward. He appears to regain his balance slightly before the clip cuts off.
Last week authorities revealed that Sicknick had died as a result of injuries he sustained during the riots – including a blow to the head by a fire extinguisher.
Sicknick managed to walk away from the melee before collapsing hours later at his division office. He was hospitalized and placed on life support before being declared dead the following night.”
If they ever identify this guy…he is screwed…His life will be over…He will belong to the state, probably until he dies.
Hmm…”CFD”…Chicago Fire Department?
These MAGA sorts have proven they have no common sense, where it comes to covering up their identities.
