More Silicon Valley Censorship of Dissent: PayPal Pulls the Plug on Moon Rock Books 

 

because our books are too “risky”

Here’s the email we received from PayPal a few days ago:

Notice of PayPal Account Limitation

From: service@paypal.com
To: orders@moonrockbooks.com
Date: Wed 04:58

We have recently reviewed your usage of PayPal’s services, as reflected in our records and on your website www.moonrockbooks.com. Due to the nature of your activities, we have chosen to discontinue service to you in accordance with PayPal’s User Agreement. As a result, we have placed a permanent limitation on your account.

We ask that you please remove all references to PayPal from your website. This includes removing PayPal as a payment option, as well as the PayPal logo and/or shopping cart.

If you have a remaining balance, you may withdraw the money to your bank account. Information on how to withdraw money from your PayPal account can be found via our Help Center.

We thank you in advance for your cooperation. If you have any questions or need our support, please contact the PayPal Brand Risk Management Department at aup@paypal.com.

Sincerely,

PayPal Brand Risk Management

PayPal

So, we called them, and this is what a machine told us (we weren’t allowed to speak to a human):
We appreciate you choosing PayPal as your payment partner. Unfortunately, we are unable to continue offering our services to you at this time, due to the nature of your business, or the activity in your PayPal account, and the risk it poses to PayPal. This decision can’t be overturned. If you owe refunds to any of your buyers, you can use the money in your PayPal account to refund them. The money in your PayPal account will be held for 180 days. After 180 days, we’ll email you information on how to withdraw your money.

They shut down our business for a few days and hurt us pretty good, because they gave us no warning at all, after a nearly five-year business relationship.

They inconvenienced our customers, as we were forced to only accept cash, check or money orders, until we secured a new payment processor, which took us a few days to do.

What’s the “risk,” that an alternative view might dare get exposure, to shine the light on government and media lies?

Right, only they’re allowed to tell us what’s right and what’s wrong.

Please support our right to exist in the marketplace of free ideas.

Oh, and yeah, we don’t take PayPal.

SILICON VALLEY CENSORS DROP 8CHAN & INTERFERE WITH PUBLIC’S RIGHT TO READ ALLEGED SHOOTERS’ MANIFESTOS

SILICON VALLEY CENSORS DROP 8CHAN & INTERFERE WITH PUBLIC’S RIGHT TO READ ALLEGED SHOOTERS’ MANIFESTOS

Security provider drops imageboard 8chan used to distribute El Paso & Christchurch manifestos

RT
Internet security company Cloudflare has dropped the unmoderated anonymous 8chan forum, which has become a source of hate-filled manifestos left by mass shooters, including the El Paso gunman.

In a blog post on Sunday, Cloudflare, which is based in San-Francisco, said it would discontinue its services to 8chan, an imageboard that has come under intense scrutiny for hosting several “manifestos” penned by mass shooters.

The company said it appears that the El Paso attacker posted his four-page “screed” to the site “immediately before beginning his terrifying attack on the El Paso Walmart killing 20 people.”

While 8chan’s role in the El Paso massacre was the last straw, Cloudflare CEO Matthew Prince said it was a chain of events that forced the company to boot 8chan, one of which is the role the New Zealand mosque attack played in triggering the recent rampage.

\ “The El Paso shooter specifically referenced the Christchurch incident and appears to have been inspired by the largely unmoderated discussions on 8chan which glorified the previous massacre,” he wrote.

Prince argued that it does not matter whether or not 8chan violated any laws by allowing radical ideas to thrive on its platform; it was enough that they “have created an environment that revels in violating its spirit.”

“The rationale is simple: they have proven themselves to be lawless and that lawlessness has caused multiple tragic deaths.”

It was still a hard decision for the company to make as it seeks to treat all of its 19 million customers without bias, but, according to Prince, 8chan crossed the line by “directly” inspiring the tragedy.

Prince said that Cloudfare seeks to shield itself from public outrage, adding that the move will not solve the bigger problem of sites propagating violence. The company’s decision to dump the white nationalist site Daily Stormer two years ago did not lead to its demise, but on the contrary, only fired up its base, he noted.

“I have little doubt we’ll see the same happen with 8chan. While removing 8chan from our network takes heat off of us, it does nothing to address why hateful sites fester online. It does nothing to address why mass shootings occur.”

He argued that it’s ultimately not up to a private company to decide “what content is good and bad” and how it should be handled, and called on the government to step up its role in internet regulation.

Take action against Paypal’s blacklisting of VDARE!

Take action against Paypal’s blacklisting Of VDARE!

Click here to donate!
Back in March, I posted “PATRIOTS HAVE RIGHTS. THEY HAVE JUST NOT ORGANIZED TO DEFEND THEM—UNTIL NOW”, explaining how VDARE.com has been forced to enter the nightmare world of litigation because of the Totalitarian Left’s unprecedented Reign of Terror, enabled in large part by various complicit private corporations. I announced the launch of our Legal Defense Fund—many thanks to those patriots who donated (tax-deductibly!), and also to our lawyer readers who offered advice.

I recently updated readers on VDARE.com’s First Amendment suit against Colorado Springs Mayor John Suthers for his role in the 2017 cancellation of our projected conference there. Again, our lawyers expect this to go to trial, and quite possibly to the U.S. Supreme Court.

But now I want to discuss a narrower but equally important case: our complaint against the credit card processer PayPal for suddenly and arbitrarily cutting VDARE.com off from receiving donations, after a business relationship of more than ten years, in August 2017. Our Notice of Dispute, required by PayPal’s User Agreement, is here. [PDF]

PayPal has still not, despite our repeated requests, explained why it cut us off. Our Notice of Dispute documents our interactions with various puzzled PayPal employees who had obviously believed they worked for a politically impartial entity in a free country.

It appears they were wrong.

However, PayPal did ban us days after the August 12, 2017 Unite The Right rally in Charlottesville VA. And PayPal CEO Dan Schulman has admitted this event provoked him to blacklist various conservative accounts. Presumably this was PayPal’s reason, although VDARE.com had nothing whatever to do with the UTR rally—was not invited, did not promote it, did not attend.

Nor, of course, did PayPal bother to check with VDARE.com about any possible alleged involvement with the UTR rally.

Whether or not private corporations have the right to discriminate on political grounds—remember, since the 1964 Civil Rights Act, they do not have the right to discriminate on racial grounds—is emerging as a major political issue, given the unprecedented and unrestrained backlash to President Trump’s 2016 election victory.

(But in California, where PayPal is based, political discrimination is banned under the Unruh Act. We welcome input from California lawyers!!!)

VDARE.com’s case against PayPal, however, focuses on a narrower issue. When PayPal cut VDARE.com off without warning, it also destroyed a significant flow of recurring donations, including from many donors who had signed up for our hard-copy VDARE QUARTERLY. Because VDARE.com was given absolutely no chance to transfer these recurring donations to its backup processor—which it could easily have done—it has still not yet been able to restore this significant revenue flow.

In addition, incredibly, PayPal then proceeded to send false and harassing emails to our former recurring donors demanding that they “pay what they owe.” And PayPal refused to explain this demand to these donors, just as it has refused to explain to VDARE.com why it has cut us off.

Of course this has been immensely damaging to our relationship with these donors, most of whom have naturally not thought to contact us directly.

PayPal has not yet responded to VDARE.com’s Notice Of Dispute. If they do not, we will have to initiate the Arbitration process by mid August.

This is a crusade, not merely for VDARE.com. but for all the patriots who have been cut off by PayPal and other payment processor during the current Reign Of Terror—and, ultimately, against all the Corporate Cultural Marxists who believe they have the right run America.

But it will be expensive. We need your help now.

You can give (tax-deductibly!) to VDARE’s Legal Defense Fund by clicking the button below. We will be reporting other litigation soon. You can even—a new feature— earmark your donation for our suit against PayPal, or Colorado Springs Mayor John Suthers, by checking the “Earmark your Donation” box and selecting a preference.

Liberals attack Facebook — for not censoring enough!

Liberals attack Facebook — for not censoring enough!

The Rebel
Dear Paul,

The last piece of Trudeau’s censorship machine fell into place in Canada this week. Canada’s Minister of Democratic Institutions, Karina Gould, announced that she managed to persuade high tech companies to censor the Internet in the upcoming political election, a “declaration” in the name of “electoral integrity.”

But it has nothing to do with electoral integrity. It’s really just the latest move by Trudeau’s Liberals to crack down on what they call “disinformation” and “fake news”, which is really just news they don’t like.

All the big tech companies were paraded through Parliament. And all of them were bashed — for not censoring enough:

Ezra_big_tech_attack.PNG

Not one voice for free speech today in Parliament. The Liberals want to shut people up. But so do the Conservatives.

They don’t like to talk about things that are too conservative for them, like criticism of immigration, political Islam, abortion or how trans rights have gone nuts.

If Andrew Scheer’s Conservatives won’t fight back against Trudeau’s attempt to censor your social media, who will?

Yours truly,

Ezra Levant.
