Enrique Tarrio, Another Activist Censored & Financially Terrorized. Chase Bank Shuts Down His Personal Account
The de-platforming and banning of politically incorrect activists and outlets is an issue we`ve posted about many times in the past. Less than 3 weeks ago we put an article up about Laura Loomer who has been forced to accumulate debt on credit cards after losing 90% of her monthly income due to censorship and de-platforming. We also noted that Laura Loomer is a Jewish women which evidenced that this mass censorship goes beyond targeting “white supremacists” and into anyone who currently challenges the left wing narrative. Most notably, alternative news outlet InfoWars run by Alex Jones was de-platformed across the board.
This de-platforming and financial tyranny is of course an extension of the Obama era Operation Chokepoint policy which targeted lawful people and businesses it disfavored and pressured banks to cut tie with them. While Operation Chokepoint by name may not be in effect in this post Obama era, the practices still are. As mentioned there has been mass censorship on social media as well as banks, credit card companies, and online payment services like paypal and gofundme cutting people off from using their services. Our past podcast here discusses this more in relation to Label 56 and others being banned.
The latest to be targeted and financially terrorized in all of this is Enrique Tarrio, chairman for the Proud Boys. An article from Big League Politics states that Enrique received a letter saying that Chase bank would shut down his bank account by April 1. There was no reason given as to why. It goes on to say that “This comes just days after Chase Bank’s payment processor, Chase Paymentech, de-platformed him on a website he runs that allows groups and charities to sell merchandise, and raise money for causes. The website, 1776.shop, is most known for selling the famous “Roger Stone Did Nothing Wrong” shirts which Stone was spotted in during the late-night arrest at his home.” You can read that full article here.
It should be noted in all of this that Enrique is an Afro Cuban, which like with Lara Loomer shows that this censorship and financial terrorism goes beyond “white supremacists” and into targeting anyone who challenges their leftist ideology. The only thing the left had to be able to hold on to power and create the matrix was control of the media, but in this internet age where everyone has an equal voice their matrix has been exposed and is falling apart. They are scared and have resorted to totalitarian censorship and financial terrorism to silence those who fight against them in the culture war. These dystopian tactics need to be challenged and fought against.
