“The ideal subject of totalitarian rule is not the convinced Nazi or the convinced Communist, but people for whom the distinction between fact and fiction and the distinction between true and false no longer exist.”
– Hannah Arendt, The Origins of Totalitarianism
The hate group SPLC has smeared and libeled every effective voice of the right, including me. And despite being exposed as the far-Left hate group it is, the social media giants continue to treat it as if it were an objective source. The “work” of the hate group SPLC is to smear, defame and libel anyone who effectively counters the hard-left/Islamic agenda. Veterans, tea party patriots, counter terror activists, even Presidential candidates on the right have been the target of their smear campaigns. They wield enormous power in the information battle space — media, movies, academia, etc. The idea that PayPal is using these destroyers to block people is chilling.
“PayPal Censoring Groups With Help from Leftist, Anti-Christian SPLC,” by Christian Ellis, CBN, February 26, 2019 (thanks to Van):
The CEO of PayPal has revealed the multi-billion dollar service partners with the leftist organization Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) to decide who should be blacklisted from their company. Using “company corporate values” as their defense, PayPal has taken intentional steps to deny access to conservatives.
It’s all a big cause for concern for Christians because the SPLC has taken an anti-Christian slant in recent years, targeting mainstream groups just because they hold biblical views about sexuality and life. CBN News has reportedly extensively on the SPLC’s radical agenda to silence conservative Christian groups like D. James Kennedy Ministries and the Family Research Council.
“There are those both on the right and left that help us. Southern Poverty Law Center has brought things,” PayPal’s Dan Schulman said in a Wall Street Journal interview. “We don’t always agree. We have our debates with them. We are very respectful with everyone coming in. We will do the examination carefully. We’ll talk when we don’t agree with a finding: We understand why you think that way, but it still goes into the realm of free speech for us.”
Schulman stated that the white supremacist rally in Charlottesville in 2017 was a “defining moment” for the decision. That moment caused them to expand their brand-reputation group to serve as a monitor of their customers in an effort to silence hate speech.
“Because the line between free speech and hate, nobody teaches it to you in college. Nobody’s defined it in the law,” stated Schulman. “The reason we had to expand the group is because websites may say something, but the links they have can link to hateful material and videos. You can’t look at a headline and make a determination. You have to spend time to really think about it.”
But PayPal actually became very public in its opposition to conservative values before 2017. For example, in 2016 PayPal announced it was boycotting Charlotte, NC after the city bucked the transgender trend by limiting the use of bathrooms, locker rooms and showers to persons of the same biological sex. PayPal canceled plans to bring more than 400 jobs and a $3.6 million investment into Charlotte.
And though Schulman stated that PayPal utilizes help from the right, the findings of those blacklisted highlight the majority of “offenders” are conservatives. Breitbart reports WikiLeaks, Infowars, political activist Tommy Robinson, and investigative journalist Laura Loomer are among those blocked by PayPal.
Schulman revealed that the majority of the accounts blacklisted are suggestions by outside organizations. Hence, organizations such as SPLC have been successful in their efforts to silence certain voices.
The SPLC had to pay $3.375 million in a settlement last year for their efforts to condemn conservatives. The organization was faulted for including former Islamic radical turned conservative Maajiid Nawaz in its “Field Guide to Anti-Muslim Extremists.”
Family Research Council Executive Vice President General Jerry Boykin once denounced the SPLC as “probably one of the most evil groups in America. They’ve become a money-making machine and they’ve become an absolute Marxist, anarchist organization.”…
