“PayPal works to ensure that our platform and services are not used for purposes that run counter to our core values,” the spokesperson said. “Our decision and actions are values-based, not political.” Yeah, right. Do they actually expect anyone to believe that? What leftist activists, what Antifa thugs have they banned? The social media giants are all controlled by far-left activists who are systematically trying to choke off all dissent by making it impossible, as Laura Loomer says here, to earn a living, as well as to be heard on their platforms. This is an evil, totalitarian agenda that all lovers of freedom, i.e., all who aren’t leftists, should oppose.
“PayPal Bans Pro-Trump, Far-Right Activist Laura Loomer,” by Christina Zhao, Newsweek, February 5, 2019:
PayPal on Tuesday moved to ban pro-Trump, far-right activist Laura Loomer from its online payment and funding platform.
Loomer posted a screenshot of the letter she received from PayPal informing her of the ban to Instagram earlier today.
“PayPal just banned me for no reason whatsoever,” she wrote. “This comes one day after Radical Left wingers published a fake hit piece about me, falsely accusing me of getting donations from an ‘anti-Muslim hate group.’”
“They want me to be homeless & die!” Loomer added.
In the letter to Loomer, the company declared they were “terminating our relationship with your account(s) pursuant to PayPal’s User Agreement. Under the PayPal User Agreement, PayPal, in its sole discretion, has the right to terminate your accounts for any reason and at any time upon notice to you.”
Responding to the decision, Loomer announced that she is planning “on suing all of the Left wing terrorists and tech tyrants who are trying to shut me down simply because I am a Conservative Jewish woman who speaks truth about Islam.” She then attacked Silicon Valley, who she claims has “disenfranchised me, falsely accused me of being a white supremacist, a Nazi, anti-Muslim, a racist, a bigot, and every other smear in the book.”
Loomer went on to admit she has already been banned from “everywhere,” including Twitter, Uber, Lyft, GoFundMe, Venmo and even Uber Eats.
“How am I supposed to pay my bills? I can’t get a regular job because I have been accused of being a Nazi,” she added. “Am I supposed to be homeless? I guess these people won’t be happy until I reach a breaking point and just die.”
The controversial figure also claims she’s accumulated $40,000 of debt in her pursuit to “expose these people and their hypocrisy.” Loomer regularly asked her fans to donate money to her cause through PayPal before the ban, but since receiving today’s news, she posted her home address to Instagram and encouraged her followers to send her checks from now on.
In a statement to Newsweek, a PayPal spokesperson confirmed the cancelation of Loomer’s account. “PayPal works to ensure that our platform and services are not used for purposes that run counter to our core values,” the spokesperson said. “Our decision and actions are values-based, not political.”…
