(FiveNation.com)- In May Amazon Web Services, the behemoth cloud-hosting company that hosts 8.9% of the word’s websites, notified one of its clients, AmericasFrontlineDoctors.org that effective May 31, 2021 that AFD must remove their website from AWS’ hosting services. The decision was made after the site was reported “as objectionable content to AWS.”
According to America’s Frontline Doctors, AWS accused them of “hosting misinformation about vaccines” therefore AWS “can no longer host americasfrontlinedoctors.org.”
Amazon gave them less than four days to remove the site from its servers.
America’s Frontline Doctors are already banned from YouTube and social media sites. Given that, the squeeze from Amazon Web Services hardly comes as a surprise.
According to the Gateway Pundit, America’s Frontline Doctors believes Amazon’s motives in dropping hosting services “are suspect” – citing owner Jeff Bezos’ close ties to the Biden Administration.
This wouldn’t be the first time Amazon Web Services has acted in the interests of government narrative.
After the January 6 melee at the Capitol, Amazon Web Services pulled the plug on the upstart social media platform Parler on the pretense that Parler allowed “violent content” in violation of AWS’ terms of service.
This move followed closely on the heels of both Google and Apple removing the popular Parler app from their app stores.
Amazon Web Services’ decision to drop Parler from its hosting services was based on 98 Parler posts (out of how many millions of posts?) that “clearly encourage and incite violence.”
However, as journalist Glenn Greenwald pointed out in early February, the majority of social media posts cited in charging documents related to January 6 originated, not from Parler, but from Facebook and the Facebook-owned Instagram. However, no punitive action was taken against Facebook.
But most disturbing about Amazon’s decision to drop Parler’s hosting services was that the decision came shortly after members of Congress began urging the tech giant to remove Parler. California Congressman Ro Khanna and New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez both publicly demanded that Amazon Web Services remove Parler from its web hosting service – leading many to believe AWS’s action was in reality government censorship by proxy.
Given the news that Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg was working with Dr. Anthony Fauci to coordinate COVID messaging on Facebook, it would hardly be surprising if Amazon Web Services was also making decisions based on government input.
America’s Frontline Doctors website is once again up and running on another web hosting service.
