A few months ago, Enrique Tarrio, an Afro-Latinx member of the Proud Boys, got liferuined because he hung out with Gavin McInnes and because banks are now targeting people whose views they disagree with.
They shut down the poor black bastard’s personal checking account.
Never trust man-children like Gavin
Since that, it’s happened to several other people who are associated with right-wing politics.
Now, we have proof that JP Morgan-Chase seems to have an unofficial (that is, not written down), but very real policy of not doing business with Bad Goys.
The transcript from Project Veritas:
JOURNALIST: I don’t want to do business with anyone who does business with Steve Bannon, or any of these alt right people, and that’s just one of my prerequisites.
CHASE: Right, right. As far as I’m concerned, we’re not connected with Steve Bannon.
JOURNALIST: Do you have standards in place that would preempt such relationship with anyone, um of Steve Bannon’s –
CHASE: Oh definitely. Definitely, definitely.
JOURNALIST: That’s what I’m calling to inquire about. Tell me more.
CHASE: Right so I mean, Chase is not involved with any like, you know, alt right people or anything. I really can’t name names but it’s basically like we don’t get involved with any of that…
JOURNALIST: … I don’t expect for you guys, I’m not talking about who you guys give money to –
CHASE: No, just any business relationships, period.
JOURNALIST: Really? Okay… So I mean on my end I’m talking about people like Trump supporters for instance. The MAGA, whatever – make, whatever the hell they, those types of people, I mean individuals –
CHASE: Right, right. I know what you mean, but like I said the call is being recorded, monitored, so I can’t get too political. And say I don’t support these people, or this, but you know, any kind of business entity, people like that, no moral character or anything like that, the bank usually doesn’t get involved with that.
If anything, this leak highlights how out-of-touch the bankmen are.
Putting White Nationalists in the same category as Proud Boys and invoking the name of Steve Bannon is very cringe. That being said, it also just goes to show how little wiggle room there is left on the right. Once the censorship started after Charlottesville and none of these Alt-Lite people said anything, they gave a green light to everybody that de-platforming was OK and that it wouldn’t be opposed by the mainstream Right.
Now, they’re reaping the benefits of this short-sighted policy.
With no visible Alt-Right movement out there, the hammer gets to fall on right-of-center groups instead.
tfw when you realize you’re next.
