Judge refuses to order Amazon to reinstate Parler after AWS shut it down

In a blow to Parler, a federal judge refused to restore the social media site after Amazon kicked it off of its Amazon Web Services. Parler won a large user base of former President Donald Trump’s supporters for its lenient content moderation. Judge Barbara Rothstein sided with Amazon, which argued that Parler wouldn’t take down posts threatening violence even after the January 6 Capitol riot.

Breakdown on the case clearly shows AMZN broke the contract it had with Parler. So this is another hack judge that backs corporate interests. Our system is so broken kinda hard to know where to start fixing it. Vlog on the case: https://youtu.be/jkiZKk4_-lA

Not sure how completely destroying a company's business is insufficient reason for the injunction...seems we either don't have all the facts or the judge is biased?

Modern day book burning and supporting criminal monopolies... Why would I assume it any different.

Amazon broke contract with Parler. Nice judge, legislating from the bench.

Complete garbage ruling. Parker's contract with AWS has a clear 30day notice for termination that AWS has clearly violated. Yep sure blind justice, blind to the facts.

A jimmy Carter stooge doesn’t see “breach of contract”, we’ll color me shocked! There is an obvious “30 day of intent or quit” in the contract but she sees no standing!!! The courts hold no justice anymore.!

More proof that the US judiciary is broken. A reading of the contract clearly shows Amazon in violation.

This kills the free market when monopolies like Twitter are able to reign supreme, while Twitter also facilitates child porn on their servers.

Parler does remove threats of violence, the judge is just angry that they don’t censor her opposition. We have a corrupt government, a corrupt judiciary and corrupt oligarchs running the country.

So the emergency injunction was not granted, but the lawsuit is still proceeding. I will have to look up the actual court docs, as the provided excerpts where the judge focuses on aspects that were moreso a focus of public/media statements, which had little to do with suit's technical arguments regarding breach of contract and antitrust, seems odd. As while perceptions of partisan favoritism are a common assumption surrounding this civil case, they are not the primary focus in the actual legal argument beyond being a speculated motive.

I tend to get scared when official judges decree against current law. The legal system then holds it valid as legal precedence allowing more of these cases to go through court. The end game being fascism? Are we heading into a 1984 Orwellian dystopia?

The NPR piece had an amusing quote from a Harvard Law School lecturer at the very end: " "It sort of made me laugh a little bit," she [Douek] said. "Has Amazon read the rest of the Internet? Ninety-eight pieces of content or whatever is not that many. I mean, has Amazon read Amazon?" " It seems the cudgel of "breach of contract" is wielded selectively by Amazon, and how it looks is that political pressure/convenience determines the target.

Could they maybe stop claiming that Parler had "lenient content moderation"? That's just a lie. We all know what the actual problem was... Too much actual freedom of speech for their political opposition.

A judge that clearly violates our faith in them by not following the law, should be removed.

Liberal judges have a difficult time comprehending the Constitution. Hence, it’s suffice to say that they can’t comprehend contracts either. Liberal hack judges were a large part of the stolen election. By blocking any attempts at conducting audits of the voting process, the American people were never given an opportunity to present the overwhelming amount of evidence of election fraud. These liberal hack judges are complicit in killing Lady Liberty.

Do you know why Parler used Google and Amazon? It was a honeypot. It got shut down after it served it's purpose. They already have all your names

Read the contract again. Plenty of outs for Amazon for conduct, etc. Amazing how many people here continue to confuse free and private enterprise with free speech. Stunning really.

Bunch of yahoo’s with zero legal training or education convinced that they know the law better than a federal judge because the federal judge made a ruling they don’t like. In every case, the judge pisses someone off. Losers always cry foul.

I get trynig to stop violence from being planned, but they only focus and the radical right but ignore some radical lefts on other platforms saying violent things too. Thats not fair, they should stop violent talk and planning on both sides. Wonder if this will go to the SCOTUS
