Payment processor terminates agreement, citing “hate” and “intolerance”
Payment processor PayPal has banned Infowars in what represents nothing less than a political ploy designed to financially sabotage an influential media outlet just weeks before the mid-term elections.
Company representatives called Infowars yesterday to confirm that PayPal was terminating its agreement after “a comprehensive review of the Infowars site.”
The company claimed that Infowars violated PayPal’s “acceptable use policy” because it “promoted hate and discriminatory intolerance against certain communities and religions.”
No specific examples whatsoever were officially provided to back up this claim, which relies on a nebulous definition of “hate” which is so vague that virtually anything could qualify.
Off record, Infowars was told that criticism of Islam and opposition to transgenderism being taught to children in schools were two of the examples of “hate”.
The ban was instituted despite InfowarsStore.com containing no political content whatsoever, emphasizing how the decision was a broader attack on the Infowars platform.
PayPal representatives said they were giving Infowars 10 days to switch payment processors, after which all services would be terminated.
The ban was handed down just weeks after George Soros-funded group Right Wing Watch published an article demanding that PayPal terminate its agreement with Infowars for “egregious violations of the platform’s own terms of service.”…
Hate and intolerance? Seriously? I’ve listened to Jones on and off for maybe 15 years. I don’t agree with everything he says but he is the very opposite of this description. He likes to play macho-man but that’s his commercial demographic, his shtick, like maddow has a shtick which appropriate to her audience. He’s a terrible interviewer, his voice gets on my nerves, he’s blind to many important issues such as medicalized infant abuse and the israeli connection to 9/11. And he’s an authentic home grown american hero, warts and all. People who blithely accept this totalitarian censorship (just before the midterm elections) who haven’t even listened to what he has to say are lazy idiots.
Some minority of his audience no doubt have various toxic “-isms” as would be found in any mass audience, but his position on transgenderism and islam are clear: he doesn’t care what people believe or what they do in private, but he knows a lot of real history and he’s aware of how these groups are being manipulated by the invisible ubergarchy which has engineered depopulation, wars and genocide for decades. This ultra-wealthy organized criminal group is far more dangerous than any racial or demographic group which might listen to Jones.
