I’m leaving PayPal now, and you should, too
There has been a bit of confusion surrounding just how woke and fascist PayPal has become. They banned us back in 2018 for wrongthink, but backed down after a popular outcry and reinstated us. Recently, however, it came to light that they planned to charge users $2,500 per infraction for “the promotion of hate, violence, racial or other forms of intolerance,” and since the Left routinely smears opposition to jihad violence and Sharia oppression of women as “hate” and “racism,” it’s easy to see what’s coming.
After that policy came to light, PayPal announced that it was all a mistake, but this is still in their User Agreement as of this writing, Thursday, October 27, noon Pacific time:
If you are a seller and receive funds for transactions that violate the Acceptable Use Policy, then in addition to being subject to the above actions you will be liable to PayPal for the amount of PayPal’s damages caused by your violation of the Acceptable Use Policy. You acknowledge and agree that $2,500.00 U.S. dollars per violation of the Acceptable Use Policy is presently a reasonable minimum estimate of PayPal’s actual damages – including, but not limited to, internal administrative costs incurred by PayPal to monitor and track violations, damage to PayPal’s brand and reputation, and penalties imposed upon PayPal by its business partners resulting from a user’s violation – considering all currently existing circumstances, including the relationship of the sum to the range of harm to PayPal that reasonably could be anticipated because, due to the nature of the violations of the Acceptable Use Policy, actual damages would be impractical or extremely difficult to calculate. PayPal may deduct such damages directly from any existing balance in any PayPal account you control.
And the Acceptable Use Policy still says you cannot use PayPal for “the promotion of hate, violence, racial or other forms of intolerance,” which is, once again, Leftist code for “speech that contradicts our agenda and our fantasies about how the world works.”
So it’s time to go. If you have supported us through PayPal and still do so, we’re immensely grateful for your help in keeping us going, and if you have a regular monthly donation set up, we hope you will transfer it to Anedot here (click the “Monthly” option). That’s a tax-deductible donation. Please also consider supporting my Patreon page here; we want to keep going as long as possible, and every day the fascist Left finds more obstacles to throw at us to prevent people from seeing the truths we present. Once again, I’m immensely grateful for your help.
The fascists have us in a tough spot. They have worked hard to make their services indispensable, and are now increasingly moving toward making access to them based on political and social conformity. If they succeed, they will of course destroy America as a free society; that’s what they want to do. So we have to fight back in every way we can, and be willing to accept inconvenience in doing so. If PayPal is threatening to fine users who don’t conform politically, we must leave PayPal. I’m going to do so now. I hope you will do so as well.
