    Looks like Patreon has decided to flex their progressive muscles and banned a few (not even extreme) right-leaning people.

    The far-right activist Milo Yiannopoulos has suffered a setback in his attempts to relaunch his career after being banned by the crowdfunding site Patreon.

    Yiannopoulos, recently revealed to be more than A$2m (£1.1m) in debt, according to Australian court documents, had been hoping to recruit people to regularly contribute funds to a planned comeback.

    He wrote on his Patreon page: “I’ve had a miserable year or two, banned and de-platformed and censored and blacklisted … and now I need your help. I want to get back on my feet and come roaring back in 2019.

    “I am one of the most censored and most lied-about people in the world. Even my fans sometimes believe things about me that aren’t true, because journalists lie more about me than perhaps anyone else in America.”

    Yiannopoulos said he required the funds to “support my family, pay essential staff and service providers” and said he planned to “assemble the greatest TV show in history”.

    Here's Tim Pool commenting on it:

    I don't love Sargon, but this is still shitty.

  7. Because employers will be tumbling head over heels to hire someone with a reputation like Milo's.
    Stupid because opinions don't affect how you do your job, but sadly the world we live in.

  11. The irony is they're all libertarians who support the right for businesses to discriminate for whatever reason so really they all deserve this.

  12. I have zero problems with this, having milo on your platform would be a network headache anyway, no one likes the guy. but I'd wish they'd have the same rigid measures with people who have been outed scammers or, much fucking worse, sexual predators. Smorky's patreon was never banned

  15. something something rights of private businesses, but even discarding that, I can't feel much pity here. It's just an example of the loudest voices being silenced, instead of the ones that are actually influential or meaningful.

  16. First they came for the Classical Liberals, and I did not speak out—
    Because I was not a Classical Liberal.

    The people behind patreon are such shitheads that I'm feeling sympathetic to that pompous windbag Soygon of Akkad right now, fuck their woketard posturing and fuck Silicon Valley as a whole.

  18. The issue is not about his performance but more of "will his opinions cause conflict among other people?", "will Milo impact my company's reputation?" Companies exist to make money and unfortunately having someone like Milo may cause any company he works for to take a few losses should people find out.
