Corporate America is trying to destroy conservatives.
They are trying to make it impossible for conservatives to do basic functions of life.
And one woke corporation is even making it impossible for them to pay money.
Millions of Americans rely on PayPal to complete their monetary transactions, for basic things like food and gas.
But what happens if PayPal decides that someone’s political views are not approved, and they shut down their entire service?
Multiple conservative media organizations are finding out the answer to that the hard way.
News sites such as Consortium News and MintPress have found their PayPal accounts deactivated in recent days, for expressing views that PayPal does not approve of.
It was all exposed in an article on Substack by independent journalist Matt Taibbi.
Taibbi wrote, “In the last week or so, the online payment platform PayPal without explanation suspended the accounts of a series of individual journalists and media outlets, including the well-known alt sites Consortium News and MintPress.”
“Unlike many on the list, Consortium editor Joe Lauria succeeded in reaching a human being at the company in search of details about the frozen or ‘held’ funds referenced in the note. The PayPal rep told him that if the company decided ‘there was a violation’ after a half-year review period, then ‘it is possible’ PayPal would keep the $9,348.14 remaining in Consortium’s account, as ‘damages.’”Joe Lauria
In other words, PayPal stole their money, and is now banning them from conducting any further transactions. They are, in effect, destroying these news sites and everyone who works for them.
Lives are getting ruined because PayPal is trying so hard to impress its authoritarian progressive activist employees.
Taibbi continues, “Consortium, founded by the late investigative reporter Robert Parry, has been critical of NATO and the Pentagon and a consistent source of skeptical reporting about Russiagate, as well as one of just a few outlets to regularly cover the Julian Assange case with any sympathy for the accused. Ironically, one of the site’s primary themes involves exploring disinformation emanating from the intelligence community.”
Given all this information, it raises the question of who is telling PayPal to take this action.
Certainly part of it is their woke employees, who are certainly angry at Julian Assange for his role in defeating Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election.
But could the Intelligence Community be whispering in PayPal’s ear, requesting that dissenting voices be removed from the public eye?
Free speech is an uncomfortable thing for people in power. It means everyday citizens get to disagree with you and criticize you, and you can’t put them in jail for it.
That is one of the things that makes our society different than places like Russia and China.
But progressive corporations and the Intelligence Community aren’t satisfied with that. In particular, they have taken an interest in China’s ability to destroy the lives of people who dissent from the government.
And now it appears that the social credit system that China has become famous for is coming to America.
