Paypal Seemingly Silencing Anti-War Voices, an Act of the Ministry of Truth?
Red Rose Register #11
Seekers of anti-war rhetoric likely already know that those that show disobedience in the face of power, especially when that power wants war (which is essentially always), rarely make it out of things unharmed.
That said, how about we take a walk now and I can mention that Paypal has been shutting off accounts of a handful of anti-war voices including MintPress and Consortium. Note that if you aren’t already a reader of those two that you’re truly missing out on some of the last remnants of solid journalism.
This censorship campaign was revealed in part when MintPress’ Mnar Adley reported that her account, senios staff writer MacLeod’s account, and the MintPress account had been shut down.
Joe Lauria, Consortium’s editor-in-chief, also announced that the CN PayPal account had been canceled without warning or notice and that permanent limitations had been placed on the publication.
Consortium, for what it’s worth, was in the early portion of a Spring Fund Drive.
Joe added that PayPal was one of the, “most important ways for its viewers and readers to show their support through donations.” Funds that were being held by PayPal at the time of this act might never be accessible, according to the company.
They are not the only ones being targeted either and it’s painted a rather clear picture.
This all brings me to wonder if Biden’s Ministry of Truth, formally known as the Disinformation Governance Board, might have had a play in the act. While the MoT might have been announced just days ago in a series of botches, it has in fact already been in operation for two months.
While little info with weight has been released on the board, I’d ask that you look up “best practices” and how the US government utilizes them along with their non-official business arms, such as Facebook.
It’s likely the DGB/MoT will help streamline the practice and it’s rather likely that PayPal might have been acting on their behalf. Remember, the current narrative is one that increasingly ramps up the New Cold War efforts and the latest messaging from officials makes it rather clear that WW3 is still a target.
Seek out and support any voice calling for peace and negotiations right now in the face of this machine, folks. They are going to need it.
