Over the weekend, Amazon knocked Parler off its cloud-hosting service, saying that the company failed to moderate threats of violence following last Wednesday’s deadly siege of the US Capitol and the site has been down since the early morning hours today.
One of the investors in the company, conservative activist Dan Bongino, remains defiant about the future prospects of the social media site.
In a post today on Facebook, Bongino insisted, “Parler isn’t going ANYWHERE. This fight has just begun.”
Bongino also asked supporters to “Please help us in this fight when we’re back online in the coming days.”
On Friday, Bongino announced on Twitter, “This will be my final post on this anti-American platform. The greatest threats to liberty are the destructive tech tyrants who have acted as publishers in their ongoing wars on conservatives & free speech.
“You can find me on Parler, where we respect free speech. I’m ‘dbongino,'” Bongino asked of his followers, of course not knowing that the platform was about to be shut down.

You can find me on Parler, where we respect free speech. I’m “dbongino.”
The suit alleged that Amazon’s decision was politically motivated and breached a contract that entails Amazon Web Services supporting posts published on Parler and that they were required to give Parler a 30-day notice before terminating service.
Bongino also appeared on Fox News this morning on “Fox & Friends” and said that “Parler will be back, just so the audience understands. I will go bankrupt and destitute before I let this happen.”
