Color me shocked that right-wing social media site Parler, which was taken down due to its failure to take any action to curb its use to plan possible violence by right-wing domestic terrorists, will be back thanks to…..Russians!
Social network Parler has returned to the internet, with the company’s founders continuing to promise a full-fledged comeback after the site was banished for its role in the January 6 siege at the U.S. Capitol.
Parler went dark earlier this month after Amazon Web Services decided to terminate its hosting agreement. The move followed the Parler app being removed from the Apple and Android stores.
A report by Reuters on Monday said the IP address used by Parler is owned by DDos-Guard, an entity controlled by two Russian men that has been linked to racist, right-wing and conspiracy sites, including 8kun. An infrastructure expert told the wire service that the company provides services including protection from distributed denial of service attacks.
