Conservative street artist Sabo, famous for using California billboards to roast Democrats, was banned from PayPal on Tuesday.
“Today PayPal canceled my account with all of my money in it,” Sabo announced on his Facebook page. “They are holding my funds for the next 6 months.”
He claims he reached out to PayPal explaining he primarily uses the digital payment platform to obtain his income, but they were indifferent.
“I explained to them that I live in a city with 60,000 homeless people and they are about to make me and my wife join their ranks…they apologized,” he wrote. “Fuck them!”
PayPal has clearly become a communist-run organization, Sabo argued.
“Leftist, communists have killed and starved 100’s of millions of people since the start of their godless government religion, what are two more… they will celebrate,” he continued. “We’ll find an alternative way to generate income and I’m sure they will work to hit that as well. And then we’ll find another.”
The left is ramping up its attempts to silence conservatives ahead of the next presidential election and PayPal is another tool the Democrat establishment is using to censor opposition, Sabo argued.
“It’s strange to think that I feel at [peace] with this because it’s a hammer I knew would soon drop. 2020 is right around the corner and they are doing everything they can to silence our side. At least they finally did it so now I can move one.”
Conservatives in America should be wary of Big Tech and the powerful corporations that are censoring and surveilling free speech, Sabo implied.
“This is Orwellian,” he concluded. “Me and my wife actually had to step outside to have a conversation away from the TV, computers and phones.”
Sabo’s art, lambasting progressives, has taken the streets of Los Angeles by storm for years.
He gained national fame creating a poster that depicts Sen. Ted Cruz as a tattooed, cigarette smoking bad boy. The image became iconic during the 2016 election.
Powerful companies like PayPal, Facebook, and Twitter “think they can get away” with banning conservatives “because they think they are global,” Sabo argued, in a video discussing the ban. “They don’t think they are American. “
In February, PayPal CEO Dan Schulman admitted the online payment system works with the far-left Southern Poverty Law Center to help identify accounts to ban from its platform. So far, nearly all the accounts that have been banned were conservatives who gained notoriety for mocking or exposing leftist corruption.
The SPLC is infamous for labeling Christian organizations, including the Family Research Council and Alliance Defending Freedom, as “hate groups” and journalists and pundits who do not fall in line with left-wing ideology as “extremists.”
Schulman claimed in an interview with The Wall Street Journal that the SPLC is working with his company to achieve “diversity and inclusion.”
“Our mission is to democratize financial access for all citizens so that managing and moving money is a right for everybody, not a privilege for the affluent,” he said.
“There are those both on the right and left that help us. Southern Poverty Law Center has brought things,” he continued. “We don’t always agree. We have our debates with them. We are very respectful with everyone coming in. We will do the examination carefully. We’ll talk when we don’t agree with a finding: We understand why you think that way, but it still goes into the realm of free speech for us.”
InfoWars founder Alex Jones and his website were both banned from PayPal in September 2018. The company issued a statement claiming Jones “promoted hate or discriminatory intolerance against certain communities and religions, which run counter to our core value of inclusion,” but never cited specific examples of Jones or Infowars’ problematic behavior.
Our very own Laura Loomer was also banished from PayPal in February, along with conservative activists Joe Biggs, Milo Yiannopoulos and Proud Boys founder Gavin McInnes.
