Parler CEO ‘confident’ platform will return ‘by the end of the month’

Parler CEO John Matze says he believes the free-speech platform will be back up “by the end of the month,” Fox News reports.

“I’m confident that by the end of the month, we’ll be back up,” Matze told Fox Sunday night.

Parler went offline last Sunday after Google Play, Apple, and Amazon decided to no longer host the application. At the time, many conservatives were flocking to Parler after Twitter permanently banned President Donald Trump days after the deadly U.S. Capitol riot.

Since then, Parler has announced it’s suing Amazon Web Services, requesting a temporary restraining order to prevent the company from blacklisting the social media site. Moreover, Parler argues that AWS is breaching the Sherman Antitrust Act of 1890.

However, an Amazon Web Services spokesperson told SaraACarter.com last week, “There is no merit to these claims. AWS provides technology and services to customers across the political spectrum, and we respect Parler’s right to determine for itself what content it will allow.”

“However, it is clear that there is significant content on Parler that encourages and incites violence against others, and that Parler is unable or unwilling to promptly identify and remove this content, which is a violation of our terms of service. We made our concerns known to Parler over a number of weeks and during that time we saw a significant increase in this type of dangerous content, not a decrease, which led to our suspension of their services Sunday evening.” 

Matze was earlier pessimistic about the potential for his platform to return online but has since changed his outlook and expressed that in his Fox interview. He’s also been able to communicate with the public on a Parler static site.

“Despite all of this, we haven’t even had one employee quit,” Matze told Fox. “Not one, even with them being harassed and threatened, no one has quit… we’ve got such a strong team, this has just made them believe in us more.”

Sara welcomes Rabbi Yaakov Menken, director of the Coalition for Jewish Values, to discuss the lack of outrage and tacit acceptance of anti-Semitic violence and targeted harassment from politicians, the media and others.

They address the violent assaults on the streets of New York City and other locations around the country , as well as the baseless New York Times attack against Hasidic schools over curriculum and COVID response. Rabbi Menken also weighs in on the idea of a two-state solution in the Middle East and the Biden administration’s pursuit of a new Iran nuclear deal.

Also, Sara takes the FBI to the verbal woodshed for sending a SWAT team after a Catholic pro-life activist who shoved a man outside an abortion clinic.
