Has he sued Visa for this yet? There has to be a billion class action and personal injury (since this is harassment, not just a financial violation) lawyers in the USA just itching to take up his case in the hopes of a big payout. Even if he can't use Patreon or other online payment processor for fundraising for that lawsuit, he can still accept wire transfers to his bank account, right?

What about lodging an official complaint with CFPB or some other local or federal agency?

What are the other options that he hasn't exhausted yet?

Owen Benjamin's backers filed arbitration actions under a clever workout unique to California law.

More detail here:
...
Under California law, Patreon is obligated to pay *in advance* all of the arbitration fees required in the case involving Owen Benjamin's former backers.

Millions of dollars.

Seeking to avoid these fees, Patreon moved for an injunction in to shut down the arbitrations.
...
Several people who are *not* lawyers claim that Patreon will prevail in its motion against Owen Benjamin's backers.

In fact the law is pretty clear.

Patreon should lose its lawsuit and be sent back to arbitration.

I'll report live once the Court has issued its ruling.
...
After Patreon sued Owen Benjmain's former backers, the so-called "bears" retained prominent lawyer @marcorandazza
to represent them against Patreon.

I am here live reporting on this hearing.

More details to come.
...
Court, "The tentative ruling is to DENY the motion for injunctive relief."

Patreon has presumably lost, unless they are able to persuaded the judge at this hearing to reverse himself.
...
The judge is hammering Patreon's lawyer, and is not impressed with his arguments.

Looks like Patreon is about to lose here, and lose badly.
...
Unless the judge in Patreon reverses himself, then Patreon's loss in court today will be devastating.

They will be on the hook for hundreds of arbitration fees.

But anything can happen in any given moment.

Will the judge overrule himself?

We will soon find out!
...
Under the Court's preliminary ruling,

ANY LARGE CREATOR banned by Patreon can have his or her backers move for arbitration.

Patreon will have to pay millions of dollars in legal fees upfront.

This is a HUGE workaround for Big Tech censorship.
...
The logic being applied in the Patreon can could be used against PayPal when PayPal bans accounts.

This Patreon lawsuit outcome has major implication.

A new legal front just opened up.

Cernovich's update...
-----
"The arbitration claims will be substantial," Patreon's lawyer says in claiming that Patreon will suffer irreparable harm. The judge cites the "gig economy" lawsuit Door Dash lost in response to Patreon's lawyer's argument.

...
"We understand that the old agreement allowed for gamesmanship," Patreon's lawyer said, which is why Patreon changed the Terms of Service. Judge is pushing back re: how Patreon unilaterally changed the TOS.
...
Patreon "changed the rules of the game in the middle of the game," the judge tells Patreon's lawyer.
...
Now @marcorandazza is up in the Patreon vs. Owen Benjamin's backers lawsuit. The Court's tentative ruling went against Patreon, but oral argument may have persuaded the judge to modify his order. High legal drama happening in San Francisco Superior Court!
...
The judge in Patreon case is fantastic, he's well prepared and really did his homework. Impressed with him for sure.

...
Marc Randazza argues:
- Patreon set up the Terms of Service to mandate arbitration.
- Patreon lost rulings in arbitration.
- Now Patreon wants a Court order to stop the arbitrations.

...
The judge is seeking further briefing on a procedural legal issue and will take the matter under submission.

The tentative ruling went against Patreon, but the Court is going to ask for further briefing.

We will have to wait a couple of weeks for a formal judgment!

*Suspense*

Conservative commentator and former baseball star Curt Schilling says that AIG canceled his insurance policy over his “social media profile,” a new level of deplatforming not yet seen.

“We will be just fine, but wanted to let Americans know that @AIGinsurance canceled our insurance due to my “Social Media profile,” tweeted Schilling.

“The agent told us it was a decision made by and with their PR department in conjunction with management,” he added.


While innumerable Trump supporters have lost their Twitter and Facebook accounts due to social media censorship and cancel culture, cases of individuals being cut off by banks and other financial services are now growing too.

The purge has gone beyond the realm of simply silencing people on major platforms for their opinions, but punishing them for expressing them by trying to make their lives unlivable.

Numerous respondents pointed out the obvious – that without insurance it’s impossible to mortgage a home or register a vehicle.

However, other leftists applauded the move and said that Schilling deserved it for his support of Trump.

“You’ve definitely earned it,” remarked one.

“I mean…. capitalism right? They calculated the risk and decided your premiums weren’t worth the long term exposure?” added another.

What happened to Schilling is yet another chilling example of how Chinese Communist social credit score system is being implemented in America.


In August 2019, the Communist state bragged about how it had prevented 2.5 million “discredited entities” from purchasing plane tickets and 90,000 people from buying high speed train tickets in the month of July alone.

This shows that the conspiracy is worse than we think. And "Woke" isn't spontaneous stupidity. There is ample organization utilizing and supplying those pawns.

Of course not, Critical Race Theory has been around for decades, it's already in the government. I can think of several MPs in Britain, not sure about America.

A couple of experts have popped up on the mainstream recently, James Lindsay and Bret Weinstein. I'll link some interviews here -




I'm not sure how trustworthy these guys are, but I've ordered Lindsay's book so I should be able to tell based on the quality of it.

I found some more stuff on critical race theory by Vee -

Also, the book I bought written by James Lindsay arrived. Feel free to ask me questions on it, I'm not an expert so I can't tell you if he's reputable, but if there's anything egregious or concerning I'll bring it up here.

As expected, the government and private sector are completing the process of forming a single cohesive system of leftist control. Banks will be instructed to not fund Badthink.
