Bezos Replacement Andy Jassy Heads Amazon Division Accused of “Removing Free Speech Off The Internet”

By PFW News

Jeff Bezos replacement Andy Jassy currently heads the cloud computing division of Amazon that made the controversial decision to ban the Parler social media platform from its web services.

Jassy, who is set to become Amazon CEO later this year, heads Amazon Web Services (AWS) which banned Parler from operating on its servers after users of the social app were accused of using the platform to organize the riot that took place at the U.S. Capitol building on Jan. 6.

AWS’s Trust and Safety team would determine the methods used by the app to moderate calls for violence and hate speech were ineffective.

The move by AWS was met with cries of foul play in the realm of free speech online with Parler founder, John Matze, accusing the service of attempting to “remove free speech off the internet.”

“… at midnight Amazon will be shutting off all of our servers in an attempt to completely remove free speech off the internet. There is the possibility Parler will be unavailable on the internet for up to a week as we rebuild from scratch. We prepared for events like this by never relying on amazons proprietary infrastructure and building bare metal products,” Matze said hours prior to the ban.

Parler’s removal from AWS followed actions from Google and Apple to take the social platform’s app off their application stores.

Matze would further accuse Amazon, Google, and Apple of conducting a coordinated attack “to kill competition in the marketplace.”

After making a home for over 2 millions users, Parler has yet to recover from the big tech actions. The Parler website is currently a shell of what it use to be as it currently sits as a single webpage with no social activity being conducted.

As Alana Mastrangelo of Breitbart points out, evidence has emerged since the Jan 6 chaos at the Capitol showing that, not Parler, but Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube were perhaps the main venues that individuals used to organize the Capitol Hill protest.

Mastrangelo reports:

A criminal complaint filed a few weeks ago revealed that a search warrant was issued on a protester’s Facebook account, as mounting evidence suggests that individuals used Facebook to help organize the Capitol Hill protest.

The DOJ has filed several charges against protesters who were using Facebook to plan their visit to Washington, DC.

Moreover, John Sullivan, the left-wing activist who was arrested and charged in connection to the Capitol Hill riot, had a Twitter account, and still has a YouTube account, which he used to post videos of the siege — videos in which he can be heard encouraging protesters on Capitol Hill.

“Nothing will stop us….they can try and try and try but the storm is here and it is descending upon DC in less than 24 hours….dark to light!” wrote Ashli Babbitt on Twitter, one day before she was fatally shot by a police officer inside the Capitol Building.

So, with Jassy as the incoming Amazon CEO, replacing Jeff Bezos who founded the company nearly 30 years ago, it will remain to be seen if censorship – which Amazon is no stranger to – becomes a more common occurrence at the retail giant.

Last year, the retailer pulled James Perloff’s book titled ‘Covid-19 and the Agendas to Come: Red-Pilled,’ which led to accusations the company was trying to silence dissenting views of the pandemic.

“We are in a truly Orwellian culture,” Perloff said in the wake of the book being pulled.

Amazon had also pulled NY Times journalist Alex Berenson’s book that questions government narratives of the pandemic and the effectiveness of masks.

The Streisand effect would take hold by the time Amazon decided to re-list Berenson’s writings, sending it to the top-10 bestsellers on Apple Books.
