    Apple, Google, and Amazon banned the social media network Parler from their services.

    Does that violate the Sherman Act?

    If it was the social media arm of Al Qaeda, would you be asking the same question ?

    Has Parler been officially labeled a terrorist organization?

    If your punting the lie that they acted as a cabal then you’ll need some of that proof stuff like you were told the first time you punted that lie.

    Why don't you let the courts decide that one.

    An anti-trust lawsuit must be filed first.
    Why isn't the DOJ doing that?

    The DOJ isn't the legal arm of the right wing nut fringe.

    Parler filed suit against Amazon, so there is no need for DOJ intervention in any event. https://www.seattletimes.com/business/amazon/amazon-rebuffs-conservative-social-media-app-parlers-demand-to-be-reinstated-online/

    I am aware of that. That doesn't answer my question.

    Why don't you ask The DOJ? I doubt anyone here works for them.

    Perhaps you should read the act and then explain how Amazon, Google or Apple are competitors of Parler. It’s like claiming a grocer is a competitor of auto repair garage.
    Facebook and Twitter especially might be considered competitors of Parler but they have no say in who Amazon, Google or Apple decide to remove from there servers.

    Why do they have a problem with Parler? Parler didn't do anything to them.

    Parker is a site where terrorism and insurgency are openly advocated. Hosting such a site could leave them open to accusations of collusion.
    I think your only focused on your own anger and that of your fellow ultra right wing racists and you have no idea how angry the other side are. Any business that facilitates your ability to spout your lies and hatred will be economically sanctioned by the majority and that is the right and duty of the majority.
    The time for pretending that all ideas are equal are over for now.
