RE: Paypal's crackdown against red pill and alt right sites
Roosh, regarding payments, are you considering Bitcoin/Ethereum? Considering they're decentralized, it's near impossible to have your payments cancelled or blocked. Of course there is the issue of converting Bitcoin/Ethereum back into USD or other fiat currency.

How about accepting Beanie Babies or baseball cards as payment?

Roosh already accepts Bitcoin for payment for Gold Forum Membership. Not sure about his other clothing or book lines though.

RE: Paypal's crackdown against red pill and alt right sites
Paypal has begun shutting down heavy metal labels because of "hate speech". This article believes it's related to the Department Of Justice's Operation Chokepoint, which means that censorship is coming out of the Federal Government instead of Silicon Valley.

Quote:A wide-sweeping initiative from the United States Department of Justice back in 2013 called Operation Choke Point was initially designed to curb payment processing for “terrorist” activities, “fraudulent” purchases, and money laundering. However, according to one record label owner, the banks who have been in the news for demonetizing and deplatforming legitimate businesses over the last few months are doing so at the behest of those overseeing Operation Choke Point.

It started with a Kotaku in Action thread, which notes that a death metal/black metal record label has shut down in the wake of PayPal pulling out support for processing purchases, along with the creditors at Visa and MasterCard because the company was labeled as “high risk”, “promoting hatred”, “promoting violence”, and “promoting hate speech”. In the case of Elegy Records, a label that hosted all sorts of death metal music since 1996, their closure comes from the inability to sign with a normal credit processor due to being “high-risk”. There are also high-risk credit processors, but it’s expensive, unreliable, and comes with no guarantees, which makes it untenable for most normal businesses.

Elegy Records’ owner, Rob, told the outlet DeathMetal.org, in a piece published on December 17th, 2018, that PayPal simply said he could no longer use their services, following instigation from a website called MetalSucks, which is headed up by Matt Goldberg and Ben Umanov. The banks also abruptly cut ties with Rob as well...

The article is very thorough. I recommend it.

Electroneum is set to rival the likes of PayPal and Apple Pay.

It’s an instant payment system with fiat pairings and has a mobile miner app.

I saw this on Breitbart.com and was going to do a thread. I wonder if any lamestream media music publications like Rolling Stone will run with this story.

Back in the '80s, when newspapers and magazines were independently owned, they would jump all over anything that smelled of restricting the First Amendment. (For those who want some background, look up the "PMRC.") But now that they're all owned by globalist entities like The Hearst Corporation and Conde Nast, they follow corporate marching orders.

So they'll probably frame this as praiseworthy because it shuts down "hate."

I recently saw an article about how the SJW crowd is trying to ban history, because they're retroactively deeming everything before The Current Year politically incorrect. That includes everything from "Seinfeld" to "Friends" to The Beatles (there are lists of politically incorrect songs of theirs online).

I hope these self-appointed nuns actually do succeed in banning "Seinfeld" and the Beatles, because that's just the kick in the teeth the Baby Boomers running these conglomerates need to wake up.

RE: The Paypal shutting it down thread
We should consider merging this into a 'Demonetization' masterthread.

Basically when Paypal, Visa, Mastercard, Kickstarter, Patreon or Youtube cut off the funding for political incorrectness or wrongthink. You wouldn't even have to limit it to those on the right because there's plenty of leftists who are getting the legs cut out from under them too.

I see.
We cannot buy satanic metal anymore, because it doesn't have the mark of the beast.
Makes sense.
