Mastercard To Vote On Denying Credit To Conservatives

Mastercard To Vote On Denying Credit To Conservatives
May 14
18:12 2019

It’s hard to believe that a huge international financial firm such as Mastercard would refuse to serve half its client base, but there you have it. Corporate shareholders will vote at the June annual board meeting whether or not to deny service to people with politically conservative beliefs or organizational affiliations.

The left-wing activist group SumOfUs demanded that Mastercard create a “human rights committee” to block their ideological opponents from accessing money donated to them from supporters via Mastercard credit card account transactions.

SumOfUs selects targets such as England’s Tommy Robinson, a political candidate and outspoken critic of the Islamification of his country and Europe since the 2015 “y’all come” invitation issued by German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

The liberal organization has decided who is guilty of slinging hate speech and is making demands to turn off their financial faucets. This is why they lobbied Mastercard to actually vote on turning away a significant portion of profit-making revenue.

The upcoming June 25, 2019 vote will be very telling since it makes no business sense at all and is purely punitive along political lines.

Is this what the United States has come to?

Apparently so. SumOfUs wants to see financial blacklists on both social media and payment platforms. Their goal is to “choke off donations” made via Facebook, Google, Twitter, Patreon and PayPal.

Eoin Dubsky spoke on behalf of the fanatical activists and rationalized their political pogrom this way:

“Spreading hate involves spending money. Whether it’s paying for online advertising or organizing violent rallies, white supremacist groups need financial services from companies like Mastercard.”

The problem is that we’ve seen some recent examples of people judged by liberals to be “dangerous” enough to warrant complete banishment from Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube, and other prominent social media services: Alex Jones of Infowars, Milo Yiannopoulos, Laura Loomer, Paul Joseph Watson, Faith Goldy, and Hollywood superstar James Woods.

Non-violent people are being financially black-listed and deplatformed from social media sites right along with violent individuals and groups. The targeted conservatives are being silenced well before the 2020 presidential election which the Democrats apparently plan to win by hook or by crook if SumOfUs represents the prevailing Democratic sentiment in the land.

Mastercard’s legal department would be foolish to weigh in early on this volatile subject and, instead, issued this vanilla-flavored statement regarding human rights:

“Mastercard is committed to treating all people fairly and with dignity, and our interest in human rights extends to all areas in which our business is involved and where we have particular expertise.”

In the only glimmer of reason perceived so far in this short-sighted, patently biased, unfair, and anti-capitalistic proposal has come from the credit issuer which follows the well-established and successful business practice known as KISS (Keep It Simple, Stupid):

“The Board does not believe that establishing a separate human rights committee is necessary to properly exercise its oversight of this important area.”

Media Research Center (MRC) hit the nail on the head:

“Every day it becomes more evident that the liberal news media are no longer simply a megaphone for liberals in Washington, New York, and Hollywood. The media are now leading the radical Left and using their platform to push a socialist agenda.”

As part of this far-reaching leftist conspiracy to emasculate their political rivals by stripping them of their social voices and financial backing, payment processors such as PayPal and Stripe are turning into “de facto internet censors,” according to the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF), which is “deeply concerned that payment processors are making choices about which websites can and can’t accept payments or process donations,” because “This can have a huge impact on what types of speech are allowed to flourish online.”

Brittany Pettibone and Lauren Southern have received the liberals’ conspiratorial brand of “right wingers” and been punished accordingly: Patreon shut down their accounts and payment processors (including PayPal and Stripe) have denied them financial services.

The EFF spokesperson warned that allowing a few, powerful corporations to decide whose speech will be restricted threatens free expression online and underscored the follow-the-leader relationship that exists between social media sites and payment processors:

“Policies by big financial institutions like Visa and Mastercard also influence the policies of other financial intermediaries — including payment processors and crowdfunding sites.”

The underlying issue is who gets to control conservative politics and our Constitutional rights (including free speech) online in the United States: those who use the Internet, our elected officials, the legal system, or financial institutions? The EFF representative was candid on this topic:

“In my opinion, financial institutions don’t have the expertise to judge whether speech has societal value or violates the First Amendment. They shouldn’t be making those decisions at all.”

The June Mastercard vote on targeting “white supremacists” in the name of “human rights” should prove very interesting – and telling. If major financial institutions continue to conspire with liberal blacklisters, the economic world might just divide equally in two, much like a piece of paper torn in half.

On the other hand, financiers who profit from an open market, free trade, and honest capitalism are not famous for their socialist leanings. So, perhaps, America will be safe from a conniving leftist take-over in 2020, after all.

If not, “you get what you elect.” ‘Nuff said.

    Typical mucking around by Donks and other bigots whose contributions to humanity have included and STILL include slavery, sedition, secession, segregation and socialism — the Welfare Plantation.

    If MasterCard does this, I’ll file a civil suit IMMEDIATELY and bury them in damages and bad PR. In fact, it could end up being a class-action suit. Idiots!!!! Where do they think we live, the old Soviet Union or perhaps the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea. (For you socialist idiots that’s North Korea.)

    Much ado about nothing. MasterCard is unimpressed by this kerfuffle and you should do likewise. Some group of someones (whom nobody’s ever heard of) will always be found to protest this or that, but it is crazy (and counter-productive) to give it a moment’s thought.

      Why would MC want to lose so many customers? I’ll be watching to see how the board votes on this, but I tend to agree with you, Brendan. I have several Visas & a Discover, only one MC which is a department store card. Hmmm

      Many German Jews in the 30’s thought that Hitler was unworthy of consideration and had no chance of ever gaining power. By the time they realized he was a real threat it was far too late.

      Indeed the case. The additional problem that impacts how this situation will be discussed is the article’s author’s intentional click-bait heading. Many readers will spread the falsehood that it’s something Mastercard has initiated. Another attempt to make a mountain out of a molehill in the name of selling papers. IMO it should be a fineable crime- particularly when it incites wars that would not happen without the cheerleading.

    Let’s get down to specifics. Conservatives generally believe that government should not tell business people what to do. So a true conservative believes that Mastercard is free to extend credit where it wishes, and for whatever reason. The principle of “Follow the money” is starting to be used to stop mass murderers, such as the Las Vegas shooter who used his credit cards to amass the vast arsenal of weapons he used to rain down death on rock concert attendees below.

    Whenever you apply for a bank loan, the first question is, “Why do you want this money?” You have to tell the truth and it has to be for a legitimate purpose, or the bank can cancel the loan at any time. Why is MasterCard any different?

    Now let’s talk about the KKK. It’s a typical hate group. Its initials stand for Koons, Kikes and Katholics. It supports the suppression and exclusion of all non-whites, all non-Christians, and all non-Protestant Christian groups from American life. It advocates achieving these goals by any means necessary, both violent and non-violent. No one would argue that the KKK is a legitimate conservative advocacy group. Surely MasterCard has customers in all the categories that the KKK resents. These customers’ oppression and impoverishment would undoubtedly affect its bottom line. Therefore, MasterCard has a legitimate business reason for denying credit to the KKK, and groups like it. So if you sue MasterCard you’re a Clueless Conservative, because, 1. Conservatives believe in government leaving businesses alone. 2. Conservatives believe in freedom of choice.

    As a Conservative, you have the freedom to organize a boycott of MasterCard, but that is all.

      You quite obviously are a person who believes in the suppression of conservative,libertarian thinking. So you are not any better than the KKK which is less violent than many of the liberal groups out there, and also you are an obvious hater yourself and that is not what KKK stands for.

      What has a bank loan (in which you BORROW someone else’s money) got to do with a donation (in which you GIVE your own money to someone else)? You can’t seriously think that the one is a model for the other in terms of who’s entitled to know what before the transaction proceeds.
