Paypal Permanently Bans Another Conservative Journalist From Having An Account

“The supervisor was extremely rude and implied that it had everything to do with my politics”

Online banking giant Paypal has reportedly banned a conservative journalist from having an account, and he claims it is for political reasons.

Ian Miles Cheong who reports for The Post Millenial, made the claims on Twitter, noting “PayPal just informed me that they have permanently banned my account.”

“The supervisor was extremely rude and implied that it had everything to do with my politics,” Cheong added.

The journalist further stated that Paypal “wouldn’t let me know which rule I broke or how, gave me a lecture instead on how journalists don’t reveal sources.”

He continued, “When I pressed them on whether it was my politics they seemed to imply that it was—the guy was really rude—and commented that ‘on issues regarding politics, PayPal remains neutral.'”

Cheong says Paypal also will not release his funds for 6 months.

As we reported last year, PayPal co-founder David Sacks, no longer with the company, warned that the financial giant is creating a de facto ‘no buy list’ by banning people for their opinions, describing it as a move that will actually increase extremism in the long term.

 “PayPal is turning its back on its original mission. It is now leading the charge to restrict participation by those it deems unworthy,” Sacks noted.

The entrepreneur also argued that by partnering with the likes of the ADL and the SPLC, PayPal has allowed itself to be used as a tool by far-left activist outfits to censor ideological opposition.

“I have no desire to defend genuinely hateful or extremist groups,” writes Sacks, adding “Indeed, when I was COO at PayPal, we regularly worked with law enforcement to restrict illegal activity on our platform. But we are talking about something very different here: shutting down people and organizations that express views that are entirely lawful, even if they are unpopular in Silicon Valley.”

This is far from unprecedented and has been going on for some time. Outlets like Infowars had their Paypal accounts suspended a long time ago.

Now it’s time for everyone else to become the target.

Paypal and other online banking systems are also now subject to Joe Biden’s IRS crack down on small businesses, which will now have to report all transactions greater than $600 through the third party platforms.

    F**k Apple

    Trying to kick Elon’s Twitter off the app store.

    Who made Apple the Praetorian Guards of the Internet?

    Why should they have a monopoly over permissible content when 97.5% of their donations go to Democrats?

    And who made them moral arbiters of anything given what they get up to in China?

    Apple Turned Off Protest Communication Tool Right Before Anti-Lockdown Uprising in China

    Smartphone company helps Beijing crush dissent.

    As it mulls kicking Elon Musk’s Twitter off the app store, it has now been revealed that Apple restricted the use of AirDrop in China, a move that harmed the organizational efforts of demonstrators protesting against the CCP’s lockdowns.

    Over the past week, multiple major cities across China have seen massive protests against lockdowns, with the normally compliant Chinese exploding into rage in response to their government’s ‘zero COVID’ policy.

    Much of the unrest blew up in response to an incident in Xinjiang’s capital Urumqi, where at least 10 people, some say up to 40, were killed during an apartment fire because lockdown rules stopped residents from fleeing the burning building.

    Most of the city’s residents have been prevented from leaving their homes for over 100 days as a result of the draconian rules, which are still in place nearly three years after the pandemic began.

    With Beijing now trying to contain what some are calling the most serious mass uprising since Tiananmen Square, Apple is apparently helping them to crush dissent.

    Earlier this month, Apple restricted the use of AirDrop in China, which protesters had been using to evade censorship.

    AirDrop allows local connections between devices, meaning it cannot be monitored or censored by local authorities.

    However, Apple launched an update to the app in China that restricted usage to just 10 minutes, making it harder for protesters to communicate with other activists, as well as send messages nearby bystanders and tourists.

    AirDrop was also being used by protesters in Hong Kong, who were brutally suppressed by the CCP during months of unrest in 2019.

    The smartphone company chose to roll out the new “feature” in China only right as the country experienced its biggest demonstrations in decades, which some would suggest is more than just a coincidence.

    “Apple has helped Beijing to suppress public dissent multiple times, mostly by complying with its requests to remove apps used by protestors for information and communication,” reports Reclaim the Net.

    “Apple also helps the Chinese Communist Party prevent users from remaining private by banning VPNs in the region.”

    The development coincides with Elon Musk revealing that Apple is threatening to remove Twitter from the app store entirely over its support for – God forbid – free speech.

    Elon Musk To Build “Alternative Phone” If Apple And Google Boot Twitter From App Stores

    Published

    There’s been speculation over app stores potentially de-platforming Twitter following new owner Elon Musk’s commitment to free speech. Musk unveiled a simple plan Friday night if Apple or Google decides to boot the social media platform from their stores: build a smartphone. And how hard could that be? 

    Musk responded to conservative commentator Liz Wheeler, who tweeted: “If Apple & Google boot Twitter from their app stores, @elonmusk should produce his own smartphone. Half the country would happily ditch the biased, snooping iPhone & Android. The man builds rockets to Mars, a silly little smartphone should be easy, right?” 

    “I certainly hope it does not come to that,” Musk told Wheeler, “but, yes, if there is no other choice, I will make an alternative phone.”

    Elon Musk Announces General Amnesty BUT Twitter T&C’s Say ‘Denial Of Violent Events’ Will Not Be Tolerated

    Speculation over app stores potentially targeting Twitter emerged after Apple executive Phil Schiller deactivated his Twitter account for no reason days after former President Trump’s account was restored on the platform. 

    Then in a New York Times op-ed, the former head of trust and safety at Twitter, Yoel Roth, wrote Twitter under Musk’s leadership is at risk of being removed from Apple and Google’s app stores if they fail to follow guidelines:

    “Failure to adhere to Apple’s and Google’s guidelines would be catastrophic, risking Twitter’s expulsion from their app stores and making it more difficult for billions of potential users to get Twitter’s services. This gives Apple and Google enormous power to shape the decisions Twitter makes,” Roth said.

    He explained, “as I departed the company, the calls from the app review teams had already begun.”

    How hard could it be for the world’s richest person to have a team of Tesla engineers build a smartphone? They already mount cellular-connected giant iPad-like screens in all Tesla vehicles on the dashboard of vehicles. 

    If Apple or Google don’t boot Twitter from their app stores, either way, Wheeler gave Musk an idea. How long until Musk unveils the Tesla smartphone and asks for $100 deposits?
