Skip to comments.Financial Blacklisting: Sleeping Giants, Soros-Backed Group Pressure Mastercard To Censor The Right
Posted on 06/26/2019 6:55:32 AM PDT by blam
A coalition of far-left political activist organizations known for peddling smears about conservatives held a protest at Mastercards annual general meeting (AGM) today, aiming to pressure the international credit card giant to financially blacklist wider sections of the political right. The groups proposal to form a human rights committee did not sway shareholders, who voted the measure down.
At Mastercards AGM this morning, the far-left groups SumOfUs and Sleeping Giants circled the venue with a mobile billboard stating: Putting hate groups out of business? #Priceless.
According to a press release published by the two organizations, this was coupled with a speech from Sleeping Giants co-founder Nandini Jammi, addressing the need for Mastercard to take swift action by cutting off its services to these hate groups.
Sleeping Giants, whose founders initially refused to take accountability for the organizations words and actions by remaining anonymous, was set up in 2016 by far-left political activists with the sole stated purpose of defunding Breitbart by spreading lies about it. The identity of its other founder, former advertising professional Matt Rivitz, was revealed last year.
Sleeping Giants coupled these smears with targeted social media harassment campaigns against corporations whose ads appeared on Breitbart News.
Over time, Sleeping Giants expanded its targets to encompass any conservative media with which its organizers politically disagree, including Fox News shows like Tucker Carlson Tonight, The Daily Caller, Dennis Prager, and the Daily Wire.
SumOfUs is purportedly a human rights activist group that now campaigns to make speech with which it politically disagrees unprofitable. Its website lists a number of powerful left-wing foundations among its partners, including George Soros Open Society Foundations, the Tides Foundation, the Media Democracy Fund, and the Rockefeller Brothers Foundation.

Your voice is in your gun.
There are to many on the side lines that are just not paying attention or do give a sh## until it is to late
And one day for no reason at all...
It seems that Soros has become untouchable over the years.
This and Google are things PDJT needs to be actively tweeting about and sicking DOJ on, and SEC.

i would have thought businesses conspiring to deny services based on political views would have been some kind of RICO violation but Im no lawyer. Also, it looks like a single business can descriminate based on politics. Just not religion or race.
Mastercard should cut of the hate group Soros.
In a Soros World there is no Freedom
Ravelry will be cheering them on.
I’m thinking it’s time we cancelled Soros’s ticket on the train of life. Why we continue to tolerate this bastard’s efforts to destabilize Western economies and undermine freedom and democratic principles is beyond me.
Paypal and Chase are already in league with liberal bullies. If you’re on Facebook’s hate list, if you’re deplatformed across the board, you’re banned by both of them.
Since most large businesses today are run by Leftists, they dont need much of an excuse to target Conservatives. They might even call Soros to request a demonstration.
That platitude will upend
STOP all tax write-offs for 'non-profits'... it's the only chance we've got against the thugs.
