PayPal decided to limit the amount of access BitChute has to its financial account through the PayPal services. This was made public via a post over on Patreon and over on BitChute’s official website.
In the post, the video hosting company explained that with the latest move from PayPal, they’re unable to send or receive payments through the service, with the opening paragraph making it very clear what’s going on…
“A few hours ago BitChute received a notice that our PayPal account has been permanently limited, with immediate effect, and that we will no longer be able to accept or send payments.”
The post was made on November 14th, 2018. The information outlines that PayPal, at its own discretion, decided to limit BitChute’s access to its financial services. This means that donations, ad payments, service invoices, and any other financial transactions made through PayPal by BitChute, are no longer valid.
The termination notice from PayPal was extremely opaque, and there is no clearly defined reason as to why the service was terminated for BitChute. The company shared the notice from PayPal, which reads…
“The User Agreement for PayPal Service states that PayPal, at its sole discretion, reserves the right to limit an account for any violation of the User Agreement, including the Acceptable Use Policy.”
According to the blog post, BitChute’s PayPal account had been setup since 2016.
BitChute notes that it will appeal this termination decision, but the company also acknowledges that the current trend from larger financial institutions and publicly accessible services and search engines that have moved to embrace widespread censorship may be the reason why BitChute was targeted.
The post states…
“It’s our belief that it is our stand against the current trend in censorship that has resulted in this action.”
This is not incorrect.
In the James Damore lawsuit it was revealed that many of Google’s employees are Social Justice Warriors who adopt far Left ideological beliefs, so much so that they believe in supressing ideological opponents through harassment and censorship.
We’ve seen that many other Leftists and Communists also adopt similar beliefs. In fact, from the documents that were released in the recent lawsuit against The Escapist Magazine’s parent company, Enthusiast Gaming, the editor-in-chief at The Escapist, Russ Pitts, declared that all Right-wing Conservatism is the equivalent of Nazism.
It appears that PayPal adopts similar views to Google and other Leftists – and given that unlike YouTube, BitChute isn’t censoring or suppressing Conservative views – therefore the institutions are looking to censor and suppress BitChute.
