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.
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.
Unlikely Ally: Russian Foreign Minister Calls Out Big Tech Shenanigans
Nationalists may find allies in strange places.
Prior to the installation of Joe Biden as U.S. president, Big Tech went on a censorship spree against former President Donald Trump and his supporters. Such corporate activism against Trump has evoked a strong international response from foreign leaders fearful of the American corporate sector’s power.
Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov recently declared that Big Tech’s actions represent egregious violations of American constitutional law.
“Recent events, including those in the United States, [pertain] to a situation when half a dozen people who have created their technological empires do not even want to know what rights they have in their countries. They themselves define their rights on the basis of so-called corporate norms and they don’t care a bit about the constitutions of their nations. We have clearly seen this in the United States, and this, of course, causes serious concern”, Lavrov said to reporters on January 11, 2021.
Lavrov declared that Big Tech’s behavior “comes from evil”. He criticized American leaders for failing to provide free access to information on the Internet.
The Russian foreign minister’s comments were in response to Twitter’s decision to permanently ban Donald Trump’s personal account earlier in January. The social media platform blamed the president for inciting an “insurrection” after a small group of his supporters stormed the Capitol on January 6.
Facebook and Instagram followed in Twitter’s footsteps, although the media platforms are currently reviewing if they’ll let Trump re-access his accounts.
It seems some of the most ardent opponents of America’s woke regime tend to come from abroad. America can no longer claim that it’s exceptional when both its private and public sector have no commitment to respecting its founding principles.
The Right needs to regroup and build a proper nationalist infrastructure to combat the current political apparatus in front of us.
