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.
Whoever is scamming people by claiming to be me on Patreon needs to shut it down and give the money to charity.

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.
LEAKED VIDEO: Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey Admits Broader Censorship on the Way After President Trump’s Ban
Dorsey should be charged.
Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey has played dumb throughout his platform’s war on free expression, but leaked video from Project Veritas shows that he is the kingpin behind an Orwellian crackdown against the 1st Amendment.
“We do intend to do the full retro as I said, in my note, it’s going to take time,” Dorsey explained in the video.
“And then the other thing, just to close out a little bit, we know we are focused on one account [@realDonaldTrump] right now, but this is going to be much bigger than just one account, and it’s going to go on for much longer than just this day, this week, and the next few weeks, and go on beyond inauguration,” he added.
Dorsey explained that Twitter is going to inflict the Orwellian Nightmare on countless conservative dissidents after the Trump ban is normalized.
“The focus is certainly on this account [@realDonaldTrump] and how it ties to real world violence, but also we need to think much longer term around how these dynamics play out over time. I don’t believe this is going away anytime soon, and the moves that we are making today around QAnon, for instance, is one such example of a much broader approach that we should be looking at and going deeper on,” Dorsey said.

This flies in the face of what Dorsey is saying publicly about the censorship of Trump. He is telling the public that he is reticent about the policies that he is proudly ramping up behind closed doors.
I do not celebrate or feel pride in our having to ban @realDonaldTrump from Twitter, or how we got here. After a clear warning we’d take this action, we made a decision with the best information we had based on threats to physical safety both on and off Twitter. Was this correct?

This is far from the first time that Twitter has been exposed by O’Keefe’s journalism, as Big League Politics has reported:
Twitter censored a clip showing its executives testify before Congress uploaded by Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe this morning in an action usually taken against videos violating copyright law, in spite of it being in the public domain.
The video featured Republican Sen. Ted Cruz questioning Twitter executives about undercover video recorded by Project Veritas. O’Keefe’s overlayed the undercover video alongside Cruz’s questioning and the executive’s response.
“The irony,” wrote O’Keefe, “Somehow a video of Twitter exec testifying that they don’t shadow ban in a Senate hearing was DELETED from our post.”
“It was a public testimony, watched by thousands.”
O’Keefe rhetorically wondered on what grounds Twitter would take down such a video…
In the undercover video, a man identified as a Twitter employee discussed how the platform censors conservative users, telling the reporter “You look for Trump, or America, and you have like five thousand keywords to describe a redneck,” the employee explained. “The majority of the [machine learning algorithms] are for Republicans.”
In the Congressional hearing, the Twitter executive maintained that the employee’s statement was untrue.
If the rule of law were not destroyed in America, Dorsey and other Big Tech oligarchs would likely already be in prison for crimes against Constitution.
