Robert Spencer, best selling author and director of Jihad Watch, has had his Patreon account disabled. Mr Spencer sent out a Tweet earlier today explaining:

“I’ve been axed from Patreon, without explanation, warning or notice — no doubt as part of the ongoing efforts of the Left to deny all platforms to those who reject its agenda.”

Patreon’s official Twitter page responded to Mr Spencer blaming the decision on MasterCard saying, “We emailed you earlier today which explained that unfortunately Mastercard required us to remove your account. You replied to us but if you have further questions we’re happy to keep emailing.”

“I replied to you by asking for an explanation,” Mr Spencer responded. “Why did Mastercard require you to remove the account? On what grounds was it removed? What rule am I accused of violating? Why was there no appeal or recourse?”

Mr Spencer went on to say, “Since I didn’t have a MasterCard on the account, why did they have a say? Do they own Patreon? What are their requirements exactly, and how did I transgress them? You haven’t given me any reason.”

How long before credit cards and banks refuse service to you and I based on our political ideology?

Brittany Pettibone rightly warned, “Censorship starts with banning us from private utilities like Twitter, Facebook and Youtube, but it ends with them banning us from our Internet providers, cell phone carriers, private bank accounts, etc. Anyone who thinks I’m being hyperbolic, have a look at Europe: Martin Sellner has been de-platformed from 12 private bank accounts in 2018 alone.”
