But you've failed to provide a single coherent argument as to why they should not be allowed to do so.
No I've not, but if you've missed them, it's wrong because:

They shouldn't be removing a website/social media platform in a joint effort as this is undermining competition.

They are in no position to judge the moderation on another platform, Especially considering that Facebook/Twitter are rife with hateful content and misinformation. That has resulted in far more harm than anything posted on Parler.

It undermines freedom of speech, freedom of the internet and the laws of the land.

You don't have to be a Trump supporter to find these actions by Big Tech alarming. If both those famous Trump allies Angela Merkel and Alexei Navalny have expressed their concern then I struggle to see how anyone who considers themselves a liberal is having a hard time seeing this!?
