It looks like @StackPath (
NetCDN[.]com redirects to them) is enabling insurrection-mongers. They’re fronting
It seems they (Parler) have a second domain
dicecrm[.]com with the actual content, too.
dicecrm[.]com is hosted in @awscloud, so it looks like Parler folks are smarter than Bezos’ minions. Amazon might want to take this down before it gets going (again).
They load JS via @Google tag manager (you can see in the HTML src). The
GA_MEASUREMENT_ID is “
In site source screenshot in the first tweet there’s a reference to
twexit[.]com. DNS for it shows they also have
leftwexit[.]com (which is a very odd site).
"Twexit" is being enabled by @awscloud @GoDaddy and @WordPress/@automattic plus @StackPath.
While the main page has (unsurprisingly) busted HTML, they’re using their old sitemap[.]xml — https://carbon.now.sh/mdyJbvddCvZaGu2tOnD6 — which has a singular recent (whining) entry:
Looks like @Shareaholic is also enabling Parler. Their “

One of the CDN content refs is this (attached img). It’s loading content for Parler from
free[ ]pressers[.]com, which is a pretty nutjob fake news site enabled by @IBMcloud (so IBM is enabling Parler as well). the
free[ ]pressers Twitter is equally nutjob.
I suspect Parler is going to keep rejiggering this nutjob-fueled content network knowing that AWS, IBM (et al) won't play whack-a-mole and are rly just waiting for our collective memory and attention to fade so they can go back to making $ from divisiveness, greed, & hate.
protip: perhaps not spin up a new FQDN with such hastily-crafted garbage behind it when you know lots of very technically-resourced are on you.
