PayPal Goes Over to the Dark Side | The Wentworth Report

PayPal Goes Over to the Dark Side. By Darren Beattie at Revolver News, who no longer does business with PayPal.

For years, the debate over Big Tech and its threat to freedom has centered most prominently on free speech. … But an arguably even more important fight concerns the financial ecosystem of the Internet, and on that front the situation is no less dire.

Two weeks ago, PayPal abruptly announced a major new partnership with the Anti-Defamation League to investigate the financial transactions of its users. …

PayPal:

At a minimum, simple prudence requires that conservative groups do everything they can to decouple their financial well-being from PayPal’s services. …

PayPal CEO Dan Schulman is one of the most aggressively political CEOs in America. In 2016, Schulman canceled a planned 400-job expansion into North Carolina over the state’s transgender bathroom bill. The service has banned Alex Jones and Gab.com from using its services. And after January 6, PayPal cut off payments to GiveSendGo, the Christian crowdfunding site that allowed users to donate money for the legal defense of Kyle Rittenhouse and January 6 protesters. …

ADL:

ADL has a long history of using underhanded and even illegal tactics against its enemies, including full-blown espionage, theft, and surveillance. …

Today, the ADL is led by former Obama Administration apparatchik Jonathan Greenblatt. … Under Greenblatt’s leadership, perhaps no left-wing non-profit has more emphatically swerved in a totalitarian direction for the sake of crushing its ideological foes.

The ADL’s most famous push for ideological control came in April, when Greenblatt demanded that Fox cancel Tucker Carlson’s show for describing mass immigration as the “replacement” of existing American citizens. …

Even before January 6, Greenblatt was issuing sharp demands for widespread Big Tech-led censorship of “offensive” statements … Over the summer of 2020, Greenblatt spearheaded the Stop Hate for Profit campaign, in which hundreds of companies were pressured to stop advertising on Facebook until it changed its algorithm and moderation policies to address “systemic bias” and remove “hateful” content.

On January 7, the ADL demanded that all Qanon-associated accounts on Twitter be banned. Countless accounts were immediately purged. A short time later, the ADL attacked Amazon for allowing third-party sellers to sell Qanon, Oath Keeper, and Three Percenter merchandise. Not only that, but the group pressured Cloudfare and Epik to stop providing webhosting services for “extremist platforms like Gab.” …

The ADL has been aggressively hysterical about the January 6 incident, consistently describing it as an “insurrection.” And since this so-called “insurrection,” ADL’s ambitions to control American society have only metastasized. The US military has become one of the ADL’s chief targets in 2021, and they are going so far as to seek an ideological purge of the armed forces. In a March blog post, the ADL wrote that military regulations must be revised to ensure that soldiers can be disciplined not merely for belonging to certain banned groups, but for holding banned ideas …

In May, the Washington Post quoted the ADL’s Mark Pitcavage in support of the idea that the military should issue sweeping bans on even “interacting” with “extremists” online …

What counts as an “extremist?” With the Biden Administration in charge, the ADL is sure to play a major role in deciding it …

The ADL has occasionally tried to show a smidgen of neutrality by criticizing Antifa, but buried in their anti-“hate” database it’s clear how they actually feel. Considered on par with actual racist or violent rhetoric, the League simply classifies the entire category of “anti-Antifa” imagery as hate-based. The tone of its writing makes it clear how they really feel: Antifa are fundamentally heroic and laudable, and those who stand against them are villainous.

Paul Joseph Watson:

Grocery shopping under the social credit score system: “Sorry, you misgendered a drag queen on Twitter. Your card payment has been declined. Your account has been closed.”

Debanking is the biggest weapon the regime have for shutting us up and making us toe their line.
