It seems to be some kind of mental disorder of The Left. They just don’t “Get it” that pissing off 1/2 your potential customer base is a Very Bad Idea. Even worse, they don’t “Get it” that being the Nanny Police pisses off all sorts of us “Normies” too.
So one of the guys I find most interesting is Sargon Of Akkad. A slightly acid wit who speaks the truth plainly. Nothing very offensive.
Seems Patreon suddenly shut his account and banned him (thus also shutting off any income). His “crime”? He used the “N-Word” on a live interview on an obscure channel on some other person’s show. The WAY he used it is also important. He was calling some quazi-nazi folks White N-word… as an explanation of something in their character; not as an insult to black people.
IMHO it just smells of folks “out to get him” who then ginned up a “story” from it.
Seems others have the same feeling, and in general Patreon has taken a “hit” from this action.
Now I’d thought of setting up a Patreon account just to get away from PayPal. Given this, I know I’m not even going to investigate setting up a Patreon account. How many other thousands (millions?) of folks had the same switch flip?…
Here’s Tim Pool’s take on the whole thing (another guy who’s stuff I like, BTW) 12 minutes:
Then here, Sargon himself explains the stupidity involved. 29 minutes:
So, OK, add Patreon to the list of those companies who are to be avoided. Period.
Sorry all you folks who are unrelated to this and suddenly find folks not funneling any money to you just so Patreon doesn’t get a cut. Find a platform that doesn’t discriminate against and attack folks who are “other than far left”.
It is very clear that what’s needed is a complete set of “platforms” insulted from all this crap, where folks can just conduct business without politics polluting business. Clearly there is now a large and ever growing market.
Looks like there’s a couple of more of these.
This one is especially good:
Looks like there’s a whole playlist of 30 some odd videos
