PayPal Forced to Reinstate Conservative Sites After Public Outrage

23rd August 2017

Read it.

We’re not the Soviet Union quite yet, it seems.

PayPal reinstated the accounts of two conservative websites it banned after receiving blowback over their decision.

PayPal notified Jihad Watch and the American Freedom Defense Initiative (ADFI) on Monday night that they were reversing the decision to ban their accounts following public outcry:

Jihad Watch is not a ‘conservative site’, except insofar as wanting to document the existential danger to Western civilization from Islam is somehow ‘conservative’; I guess a willingness to accept reality is ‘conservative’. Both are certainly anti-proglodyte sites, and hence incompatible with the Narrative, which is undoubtedly why they were targeted. It’s all part and parcel of the common proglodyte meme that those documenting actual hate groups, which Islam obviously is, are somehow hate groups themselves.

    Seemingly forgotten in all this is that PayPal is a privately-owned site, and has no obligation to allow access to any- and everyone.
    The right is more than willing to defend a baker choosing not to sell to a gay couple, but explodes in indignation when a website exercises it’s independence in deciding who gets to use it.

    And “conservative” in this context means “right-wing conspiracy-buying morons” like the ones who think Charlottesville was a set-up by Obama.

    And similarly the left is more than willing to defend a private company refusing to deal with somebody because their views are politically incorrect, but explodes in indignation when a business exercises its independence in refusing to deal with the freaks and bozos of the Fashionable Victim Classes.

    You can’t have it both ways.

    I’ve not seen any indication that anyone believes that Charlottesville was ‘set-up by Obama’ — is that the latest left-wing fantasy?

    No, it’s the latest right wing fantasy, usually prefaced by, “My cousin’s sister-in-law’s hairdresser’s brother was there and saw…” whatever it was they saw that “proves” it was a set-up. I’ve only heard one person tag it back to Obama, but I fully expect the rest of the parrot crew will follow.
