(RepublicanPress.org) – Big-tech companies have cracked down hard on conservative voices this week. On Sunday, January 10, 2021, Amazon shut down hosting services for conservative social media portal Parler. It didn’t stop there, though.
Amazon also announced its suspension of donations to any Republican legislator who voted against certifying the Electoral College ballots on January 6, 2021. Then, on January 11, Amazon partner company GoDaddy suspended hosting services for AR15.com, a site tailored to gun owners’ interests.
Like with Parler, AR15.com wasn’t given enough notice to prevent it from going offline. The company was able to redirect users to a duplicate site hosted on a backup web address. Shortly thereafter, the site owners posted a response, announcing they found suitable hosting and expected the site to be fully operational within five days.

These ongoing efforts to censor conservative voices and those of Second Amendment advocates also involve companies such as Twitter, Google and Facebook. Such businesses have also removed conservatives and politicians who speak out about allegations of voting irregularities and fraud in the 2020 presidential election.
