DEPLATFORMED: Patriot Militia Gets Booted Off PayPal and GoFundMe

Published

on

The United Constitutional Patriots have been kicked off of PayPal and GoFundMe.

The armed group of patriots who have helped detain waves of migrants were booted off the platforms on Friday after a video of the group apprehending 200 migrants went viral.

A spokesperson for PayPal told BuzzFeed News that “The account associated with United Constitutional Patriots has been closed due to a violation of our Acceptable Use Policy.”

The PayPal spokesperson also clarified that “We do not allow PayPal services to be used to promote hate, violence, or other forms of intolerance that is discriminatory.”

Mark Cheney, the head of the militia group, confirmed that GoFundMe suspended his organization’s accounts.

Cheney told BuzzFeed, “They killed us” and that he has to “find some other way for people to donate.”

GoFundMe stated that “This campaign was removed from the platform because it was found to be in violation of GoFundMe terms and conditions.”

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) wrote New Mexico leaders urging them to prevent the militia from threatening migrant families.

In a letter directed to New Mexico Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham, ACLU attorneys wrote “We cannot allow racist and armed vigilantes to kidnap and detain people seeking asylum.”

Grisham made a statement on Friday, April 22, 2019, stating that it was “completely unacceptable that migrant families “might be menaced or threatened in any way, shape or form when they arrive at our border.”

The governor added “It should go without saying that regular citizens have no authority to arrest or detain anyone.”

BLP recently covered UCP’s efforts and the backlash they have received so far.

With immigration reform moving slowly, certain groups like UCP feel motivated to take matters into their own hands.

BLP has reported on how migrant crossings are about to exceed Bush era levels.

All things considered, law enforcement at the border will need all the help it can get.

Mass migration is taking its toll in the West, and the U.S. is the latest theatre to see unprecedented waves of migrants come across its border.

Donald Trump was largely elected on the basis of his pro-border platform in 2016.

BLP found that this same pro-border platform plays very well with Republican voters and could likely propel him to victory in 2020.

However, as conservative activists like Faith Goldy have found, social media and payment processors are becoming increasingly hostile towards conservative individuals and organizations.

The United Constitutional Patriots are just the latest group to face Big Tech’s wrath.

The Attorney General on His Way Out?: Trump Mulls Firing Bill Barr, Advisers Trying to Dissuade Him

Trump is unhappy about more than just Barr’s recent voter fraud comments.

Published

on

President Donald Trump is considering firing Attorney General William Barr, with the Washington Post reporting Wednesday evening that Trump “remained livid” at him.

On Tuesday Barr said that the Justice Department did not find evidence of “fraud on a scale that could have effected a different outcome in the election.”

An unnamed senior administration official told the Post that although Trump is upset about Barr’s comments, he’s also unhappy with Barr about other matters, such as his previous lack of action on the FBI’s investigation into the Trump campaign and his handling of John Durham.

The president is pressuring Barr to release the “Durham report,” which could implicate officials in using the investigation to target Trump for political reasons. Trump also sees Barr’s secret appointment of Durham to DOJ special counsel as a “stall tactic.”

AG Barr Reveals John Durham Was Appointed Special Counsel Weeks Before 2020 Election

In the wake of Election Day Attorney General Barr authorized federal prosecutors to “investigate substantial allegations” of voter fraud. But in his comments Tuesday, Barr claimed that “most claims of fraud are very particularized to a particular set of circumstances or actors or conduct.”

“They are not systemic allegations,” said Barr.

Trump may want to fire Barr, but several advisers are trying to persuade him not to, according to the unnamed senior official.

Either way, it’s tough to see how Barr remains attorney general for much longer. If Joe Biden pulls off the steal and gets inaugurated, he will certainly replace Barr with his own AG. And if Trump hangs on for his second and final term, he may very well want to clean house and start afresh.
