Activists Target Top Patreon Accounts, Proving Hypocrisy
Activists Target Top Patreon Accounts, Proving Hypocrisy. A few top podcasts have histories of breaking Patreon’s rules and some activists have begun to highlight these channels.
One thread on reddit was recently removed as it provided proof of a top Patreon podcast overtly breaking the rules. This has created an interesting problem as people in favor of free speech won’t resort to the same tactics employed by those seeking to deplatform people.
Patreon has made itself a battlefield in the culture war by entering the fight but the left and social justice activists have no sympathy for Patreon. Some on the left have already been highlighting podcasts that break the rules.
The Number 5 largest account has recently joined in to support Dave Rubin, Jordan Peterson, over the banning of Sargon of Akkad, aka Carl Benjamin. Could this start a cascade that ends with Patreon facing its end?

Patreon May Have Violated Anti Trust Laws In Sargon Debacle. YoutuberLaw and I discuss the issue of Anti Trust laws and whether or not there was collusion to shut down competition following the ban of Sargon Of Akkad, aka Carl Benjamin.
There doesn’t seem to be a reason for payment processors to shut down a deal with a Patreon competitor other than to protect Patreon from the damage it caused itself.
Youtube Law is a tech lawyer who weighs in on the issue.
Perhaps its an issue of social justice activists targeting Sargon but it could also be a greater attempt to stifle competition to their platform.
