SCAM: Patreon Hosting Fake Paul Joseph Watson Fundraiser

They will shut down conservative commentators, but don’t seem to care when a conservative commentator’s fans are being scammed.

Published

Patreon is a website designed to support content creators by allowing their fans to make monthly contributions to support their content. At its core, it is a great solution to work around the instability of websites like YouTube, which regularly removes income streams from online content creators.

But unsurprising for a company located in Silicon Valley, the platform has been known to police content from right-wing content creators like Lauren Southern, who had her Patreon page shut down for having opinions they didn’t like.

But while the fundraising website was heavily concerned with shutting down a 22 year old right winger, they don’t seem to care as much when a page is set up to scam the fans of another right wing commentator. That is exactly what is happening with Paul Joseph Watson, who has asked Patreon to remove a page that falsely claims to be him, and has over 100 monthly donors.

The account in question is clearly in violation of the companies terms of use, as outlined on their website:

Impersonation – Don’t impersonate anyone. Don’t use another’s account, or allow others to use your account.

Large tech companies have been known to have different rules when it comes to conservative commentators. Websites like Facebook have been known to sensor conservative views. With Patreon being in the same “Silicon Valley culture” as Facebook, it isn’t surprising that they treat their conservative users differently.

Big League Politics has reached out to Patreon for comment, and they stated they are looking into the situation. We will update you with any developments.

UPDATE: After this article was published, Patreon reached out to Big League Politics to inform us that the fake page referenced in this article has been removed. Leaving this official statement: The creator page has been suspended while the proper due diligence is being taken to verify the owner of the page.

Facebook Directly Censoring Tucker Carlson in Advance of November Election

They fear Tucker Carlson.

Published

Facebook is censoring Tucker Carlson just weeks away from the November 3rd presidential election, hoping to silence America’s most popular political news figure.

Tucker Carlson hosts the most popular cable television show in American history on Fox News, and he’s one of the only journalists(although he eschews the term) that Americans who distrust oligarch-controlled corporate media rely on for information.

Facebook notified Tucker’s page on the social media giant that his posts would have “reduced distribution” for what they’re falsely claiming is “repeated sharing of fake news.”

Facebook has previously censored an interview Tucker conducted with a Chinese dissident who claims that coronavirus was engineered in a laboratory by Chinese government researchers.

Tucker is the most prominent political figure to criticize the alliance of big business with the establishment Democrat Party, most notably the tech monopolies of Silicon Valley. Facebook has now taken a page out of the Chinese or Soviet political playbook in censoring its own critics.

Left-wing whiners have been furiously clamoring for Facebook to censor more conservative and right-wing figures, pointing to the pitiful engagement that liberal pundits and politicians receive on the platform in comparison to figures like Tucker, Ben Shapiro, Donald Trump, and Mark Levin.
