Antifa Demanded Right-Wingers Be Banned by PayPal, Now They've Been Banned Themselves

• https://www.infowars.com

Multiple antifa groups which revolve around lobbying corporate America to ban and deplatform right-wingers like Tommy Robinson and the Proud Boys were just banned by PayPal themselves.

From The Verge, "PayPal is canceling accounts used by the Proud Boys, Gavin McInnes, and antifa groups":

PayPal said today that it will cancel accounts used by far-right group the Proud Boys as well as multiple accounts from anti-fascist groups.

The move will make it much harder for the groups to raise money online. The decision is the latest act of "de-platforming" by the tech industry, which has been grappling with how to effectively handle users that promote hateful or violent ideologies. The news was first reported by BuzzFeed News's Blake Montgomery.

The ban will include the Proud Boys account as well as an account used by its founder, Gavin McInnes, PayPal said. The company is also canceling accounts for Atlanta Antifa, Antifa Sacramento, and the Anti-Fascist Network. PayPal had previously canceled accounts for Antifa Philadelphia, Antifa Arkansas, Belfast Antifa, and Rose City Antifa. The company also canceled an account used by Tommy Robinson, former leader of the far-right group the English Defence League.
