Kim Iversen: PayPal BANS Independent Anti-War Journalists

Kim Iversen criticizes PayPal for choosing to cut off their services to some independent media organizations and journalists.

We reached out to PayPal for comment, they provided the following statement: We regularly assess activity against our long-standing Acceptable Use Policy and carefully review actions reported to us, and will discontinue our relationship with account holders who are found to violate our policies. We work hard to achieve the right balance and to ensure that our decisions are values-driven and not political. Per company policy, PayPal does not disclose specific account information for current or former customers.

  1. No calls for censorship can be coming from the left as no one truly liberal is pro-censorship, anyone calling for less power to the people and more power to the "Truth Ministry" from 1984 is just a fanatic and belongs in the national-socialist party and not the collective left.

  2. Why are we surprised when PayPal is the snitch for those making more than 600.00 dollars per year. They are now just an arm of the left leaning federal government. They are now socialists and fascists. Stop using and buying stocks. I don't accept Paypal in my business any more.

  3. Okay, but what specifically is the government doing to pressure these companies? I want to see the evidence. Because I believe it is likely, but I'm not willing to consider it fact simply because it fits my worldview.

  4. I wouldn't be surprised if PayPal is generating interest on the 180 day "review", when they may have the money tide up in stocks or bank account.

  5. The center "left" in the US isn't really left anymore, they are pro-corporate power, pro-war, pro-government regulation, pro-racial identification… Basically fighting for all of the things the "left" was against twenty years ago. The "right" is moving into the void left behind, placing them closer to the far left on many issues, which makes for very strange politics. It is just team sports, red or blue, with nobody even paying attention to how backward and contradictory the positions they are taking really are.

    Crazy times we live in.

  6. Over the past two years, we've seen firsthand why the forefathers saw the need to add freedom of the press within the first amendment, and the dangers of business and government collusion.

  7. Strange times these are. Since my late teens I have been anti-war. Decidedly. Which has often found me aligned with the Dems; sometimes my position was further to the left than your average Dem voter, sometimes about the same, sometimes (but not very often) more centrist.

    But that was then. That was, it would seem, a long time ago. Lately, in the last five or ten years, the "left" and/or the Democratic party has changed. Radically.

    It seems dangerous, now, for me to remain anti-war. Not that Repubs are "punching not sees," but Dems are openly saying how it's a good thing to punch someone who–since he isn't with us–then he must be a "not see."

    The pro-war Dems have recently embarked on a mission to recruit more adherents to their side. They are doing so by threatening a core tenet held by those who are in a general sense "swing" voters, but strongly support that core tenet. Overnight, millions more "fence-sitters" and Independents and Pro-Choice Repubs will join the Dems. This may or may not result in reinstating Roe v Wade, but it just might end up resulting in that final game-changing push. The push that gets us into WW3.

    "Join us and you'll be able to choose. After all, it is your body, your choice. Join us and you can also begin saving the lives of those bleeding and crying women and children that we've been showing you on your TVs lately." Though you probably won't find these exact words in a Dem pamphlet, it is their mission statement.
