Roosh V Banned Instagram Chase Bank WePay

Roosh V, real name Daryush Valizadeh, the controversial pickup artist and men’s rights advocate who stands accused of holding misogynist views, was banned from Instagram and Chase Bank’s WePay payment processing system after announcing his 2019 summer tour.

Valizadeh was banned from Instagram and Chase Bank’s WePay late on Thursday night, on the same day he announced his 2019 tour.

Strangely, according to Valizadeh, his Instagram account was private. Users had to ask his permission to receive his posts, and Valizadeh had to manually approve each person. Ostensibly, this should have prevented users who did not share his views or respect them from being offended by them.

Instagram was not clear on what policies Valizadeh violated in its notice to the men’s rights advocate.

Facebook and Instagram recently banned several prominent conservatives, labeling them “dangerous” and “hate figures.” Alex Jones, Paul Joseph Watson, Laura Loomer, and Milo Yiannopoulos were all banned from the platforms, and users who post videos or links featuring Jones may also be banned from Facebook.

Within 19 minutes of his ban from Instagram, Roosh was banned from Chase Bank’s WePay payment processor, which he was using to sell tickets to an upcoming tour later this year.

While Chase claimed Valizadeh’s account was subject to a larger than normal number of chargebacks, people using credit card companies to receive refunds, it did not explicitly name this as the reason for the termination of his account. Instead, Chase Bank informed the men’s rights advocate that they “can no longer support [his] business”, and they will “need to cancel any pending payments.”

Chase Bank recently came under fire after admitting that it has deplatformed prominent conservatives, including Proud Boys chairman Enrique Tarrio, over their conservative political views.

Big League Politics reported:

An undercover investigation by Project Veritas shows a Chase Bank employee admitting that the company has standards in place to cut business ties with conservative figures.

This comes just months after the bank cut ties with Enrique Tarrio, the Chairman of the Proud Boys fraternal organization, as first reported by Big League Politics.

Project Veritas also gained valuable information about the de-platforming of Tarrio, with multiple bankers admitting that his account was in good standing prior to the cancellation.

“I see nothing that indicates any reason why the account should be closed, I don’t see any outstanding transactions or anything ridiculous,” one Chase Banker stated.

Conservatives are being systematically denied access to social media, Internet, and banking systems as we rapidly approach the 2020 election.

President Donald J. Trump has called out the big tech giants in an effort to curtail their unceasing censorship, and his condemnations appear to have fallen on deaf ears in Silicon Valley.

Big League Politics contacted Facebook, the parent company of Instagram, and Chase Bank for comment on this story, and did not receive a response in time for publication. Facebook did not immediately reply, and Chase Bank has thus far been unwilling to share information related to one of their customers.

8Chan Founder is Wanted for ‘Cyberlibel’ for Allegedly Maligning Current Owner of the Free Speech Site

Current 8Chan owner Jim Watkins has accused the site’s founder Fredrick Brennan of “cyberlibel.”

Published

The Philippines has issued a warrant for the arrest of 8chan founder Fredrick Brennan after the man to whom he sold the controversial free speech website accused him of committing “cyberlibel.”

The Pasig City Regional Trial Court Branch 158 issued a warrant on Wednesday for the arrest of Brennan, his lawyer Alexander Acain Jr. confirmed to CNN Philippines. Acain says he will recommend for his client to return to the Philippines from the United States and post bail but is not sure if Brennan will heed his advice.

These charges have resulted from a complaint made by current 8Chan owner Jim Watkins, who bought the site from Brennan, after Brennan made tweets referring to Watkins as “senile” and “incompetent.” Brennan is being charged under the country’s Cybercrime Prevention Act.

“They are a malicious imputation of senility on the part of [Watkins,] a condition, status or circumstance tending to cause dishonor, discredit or contempt of [him,]” Pasig City Assistant Prosecutor Juliene Raymond Cabanacan said in an eight-page resolution issued on January 2 and received by Brennan’s attorneys last week.

Brennan, who is disabled and confined to a wheelchair, faces between 6 and 12 years in prison if he is ultimately convicted of the charges. He has become a vocal critic of how Watkins has handled 8Chan since he took full control over the site in 2016.

“I’ve tried to understand so many times why he keeps it going, and I just don’t get it,” Brennan said last year. “After Christchurch, after the Tree of Life shooting, and now after this shooting, they think this is all really funny.”

“Shutting it down, having these chan sites pushed underground, it wouldn’t totally stop these kinds of things from happening. But it wouldn’t happen every few months,” Brennan added.

Watkins, however, has contended that 8Chan is integral in the fight for global free speech and vows to keep the website up in some form to allow anonymous discussion on the Internet to continue.

“It is actually sinister behavior. Ours is one of the last independent companies that offer a place you may write down your thoughts free from having to worry about whether they are offensive to one group or another,” Watkins said after the media blamed 8Chan for enabling mass shootings.

“Power consolidation of the media beginning as radio and TV stations were gobbled up by a few strong and rich companies is now moving at a breakneck pace through the internet. It will effectively silence the masses and leave them with no place to voice their messages,” he added.

8Chan re-branded to 8kun in Nov. 2019 and was restored to the internet after being denied service by their DNS provider Cloudflare, which allows pedophiles to use their services to propagandize about the virtues of raping kids.
