Visa now denying credit and payment processing based on your political views

https://news.gab.com/2020/06/26/social-credit-score-is-in-america-visa-blacklisted-my-business-and-my-family-for-building-gab/

In China there is something called the Social Credit System, which was developed by the Communist Chinese Party as a “national reputation system.” This system tracks the “trustworthiness” of individuals, businesses, and organizations. “Trustworthiness” here means total and complete submission to the Chinese Communist Party. If the Communist Party deems you to be untrustworthy, you are denied access to plane tickets, train tickets, opening and operating businesses, and more. ...

To most Americans this sounds horrifying, and it is. I now know from first-hand experience because this social credit system exists in the United States. While it may not be sanctioned by the United States government, it most certainly has been deployed by US corporations who today have in many ways more power, data, and control over our lives than our government does. Many of these corporations also happen to be endorsing and raising money for communist organizations, revolutionaries, and the domestic terrorists burning down our cities.

We were told this week that not only is Gab blacklisted by Visa as a business, but my personal name, phone number, address, and more are all also blacklisted by Visa. If I wanted to leave Gab tomorrow (something that isn’t going to happen) and start a lemonade stand I wouldn’t be able to obtain merchant processing for it.

Simply because my name is Andrew Torba.

If my wife wants to start a business she won’t be able to obtain merchant processing because she lives at the same address as me and would be flagged by Visa.

This is obviously very concerning. We have done nothing wrong. Gab is and always has been a legally operated business. We sell hats, shirts, and a software subscription service that unlocks new features on Gab. My personal credit score is in the 800’s. I pay my bills. I have a wife and daughter to provide for, yet we are all being punished and defamed because someone at Visa has it out for me.

We were told that Visa has someone camping on our website watching our payment processing. As soon as we get a new processor up they find out who it is on their end and contact them. They tell the processor that Gab is flagged for “illegal activity” and if they do not stop processing payments for us they will be heavily fined.

When the processor inquires about this alleged “illegal activity,” Visa tells them that Gab has been flagged for “hate speech.” “Hate speech,” is of course not illegal in the United States of America and is protected by the First Amendment. As I have written, it’s not real and I refuse to acknowledge it as term. Visa doesn’t agree with me.

The reason I share all of this is that I hope it serves as a wakeup call and as a warning. If they can do this to me, they can do it to you and they likely will.


We should all:

1. cancel Visa cards and tell them why
2. lobby our congressmen and ask them to revoke Visa's right to operate as a corporation

If every little bakery has to bake a cake for homo couples, then why is Visa allowed to deny service to people who have done nothing wrong?

Revelation 13:17 and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

In the last days a world political and religious figure will control all commerce. Only those who worship him will be allowed to buy and sell. Visa is already choosing sides and conditioning people to accept the “new normal.”

I agree with the attempt to boycott Visa, and they should not be allowed to do this in the USA!

But some day soon it will happen on a global scale. China is already doing it too.

Time to regulate.

I did, I canceled them all this week and told them why. Except for a debit card. I'm working on that.

I had those cards for well over 20 years.

Why: Alfred F Kelly Jr is a fucking cock sucker turned politician. Somebody needs to hit him in the head with a brick. Knock some sense into him.

Visa is strong-arming other companies into not doing business with Torba/Gab? That sounds like collusion.

20-30 years ago this kind of behavior would not only be unheard of, it would be completely unimaginable. To even entertain the mere possibility that Western countries would flush themselves down into 3rd world totalitarian hellholes this fast, even I would have considered a ridiculous conspiracy theory.

Are other credit card companies even a valid alternative? Or have they all been infiltrated by communist scum?

Why cancel it? Just stop using it.

I don't use one of the cards, and second is for convenience - I never accumulate any balance. If enough people cancel their visa cards, perhaps virtue signalling CEO will have zir bonus decreased.

Yeah sure...all these same people who were touting how they love to use cards for "cash back" 'or airline miles"...

It must be nice to still be able to dream.

I know, I am so naive sometimes.
