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.

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 Censors Project Veritas Video, Keeping Coronavirus Hysteria in High Gear

Big Brother is ramping up due to coronavirus.

Published

on

Facebook is reportedly throwing a Project Veritas video off of their monolithic social media platform because the video contains information about coronavirus that is unapproved by the political and media establishment.

CNN reporter Oliver Darcy reported that Facebook would be removing the Veritas video from their platform because of nebulous and unspecified policy violations. Veritas founder James O’Keefe blamed Darcy for allegedly being a snitch and attempting to get his video removed from social media platforms.

O’Keefe also blasted New York Times reporter Andrew Jacobs for his moral preening in criticizing his coronavirus reporting.

The controversial video published by Veritas shows O’Keefe talking with boots on the ground at coronavirus testing sites. He talked to Army personnel and health care workers who claimed the pandemic is not as bad as the media and government officials are purporting it to be.

Certain transcripts from the Veritas video can be seen here:

James O’Keefe: “What about the situation itself. Is it as bad as–the media is saying? The whole pandemic?”
New York Army National Guardsman: “Oh no. It’s the flu!”
O’Keefe: “That’s all it is?”
Guardsman: “It’s the flu.”

O’Keefe: “Is it as bad as they’re saying, this pandemic? Everyone’s freaking out. Is it bad, is it overblown by the media, what is it like?”
Medical worker: “Is it what?”
O’Keefe: “Is the media accurately reporting or is it as bad as people are saying?”
Medical worker: “No.”
O’Keefe: “It’s not as bad as the—”
Medical worker: “It’s precautionary.”
O’Keefe: “The media is making it out bigger?”
Medical worker: “Yes.”

O’Keefe’s video has garnered controversy because it goes against the narrative of fear and hysteria that has been pushed by the fake news media, government bureaucrats and official expert class.

“The rollout of our findings does not endorse COVID-19 behavior one way or another, nor do we encourage others. Our goal is to inform the public and allow the public to make judgments on the issues,” O’Keefe said. “Emotionally driven, knee-jerk reactions journalists are the last thing the public should be subjected to in a time of crisis.”

“I realize this will probably upset some, but Project Veritas goes to the front lines to get unfiltered, raw information, to the public. We’re not here to project a narrative or even to draw a conclusion—we don’t even know who the villains are, if any,” O’Keefe added.

Despite Facebook’s reported censorship of the Veritas video, there are no plans for Twitter and YouTube to remove the content from their platforms at the present time.
