Could PayPal Finally be Prevented From Banning Users for Their Political Views?

PayPal has been on a censorship spree and de-platformed several high-profile groups for their political views.

While the payment processing platform has banned conservatives and right-wingers for years, it’s latest moves may have gone a step too far.

In addition to banning anti-pedophile group ‘Gays Against Groomers,’ PayPal terminated accounts operated by the Free Speech Union and other groups in the UK that opposed lockdowns and vaccine mandates.

WATCH:

Following the controversy, dozens of Conservative Party MPs signed an open letter to Jacob Rees-Mogg’s Business Department demanding that PayPal be legally barred from imposing discriminatory practices.

Summit News provided further details:

The letter asserts that it is “hard to avoid construing PayPal’s actions as an orchestrated, politically motivated move to silence critical or dissenting views on these topics within the U.K.”

This morning, the London Times also published a powerful piece by Jawad Iqbal which highlighted the dangers of allowing PayPal to abuse such powers.

“This is censorship by corporate diktat: the company sets its own rules and interprets them as it sees fit. It appears oblivious to the notion that it is wrong in principle to withdraw vital services from people because of their political views. Would it be acceptable for a supermarket to refuse to serve a customer because of their politics or for a high street bank to refuse to make a payment to a company it deemed politically objectionable?” asked Iqbal.

After questions were asked in Parliament about the issue, a new law could be on the cards that would put an end to PayPal’s crusade against dissident viewpoints.

“Conservative backbenchers are considering launching an amendment to upcoming financial legislation in the House of Commons that would ban companies from freezing campaigners’ accounts,” reports the Telegraph.

“One source said ministers are likely to accept the amendment to the law because Conservative backbenchers will support it.”

While leftists argue that ‘PayPal is a private company and can ban who it wants,’ the company is regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) in the UK.

The FCA mandates that “All firms must be able to show consistently that fair treatment of customers is at the heart of their business model.”

Fair treatment hasn’t been PayPal’s business model.

And the problem also persists in the United States.
