The anti-Patreon train seems to be in full bloom. I was shocked when I learned that advocacy journalist Lauren Southern was removed from the patron based rewards program. Frankly, I was scared because (while for now I’m not making much) I immediately jumped to ask myself “will I be next?”
There have been so many attacks on conservative and libertarian commentators online lately, specifically targeting the methods in which they are able to fund their operations. Dr. Jordan Peterson, the soft spoken professor who has become the target for many social justice warriors, was removed from YouTube entirely. The horror stories are rampant, and growing everyday. I’ve lost advertisers for my show because they are afraid they will be attacked because of their association with me.
