Senator Tim Scott has made a name for himself by countering Democrats left and right, even amid their most prejudiced attacks against him.
After all, this is the same senator that endured accusations of being an “Uncle Tom” for not only daring to be Republican, but also daring to support Trump.
That said, Scott is clearly not intimidated by the leftist brigade, holding steadfast to the same values that have propelled him to national attention.
One of those values includes calling out ultra-woke policies when he sees them, and, apparently, PayPal has decided to compete with Twitter in the never-ending wokeness battle.
Specifically, PayPal decided it would not only be a good idea to “cancel” people a la Twitter when they spread alleged “misinformation,” but also to fine people for allegedly spreading misinformation.
And these fines are hardly insignificant.
However, PayPal went a bit overboard and has promptly reversed its company policy after public outcry, as reported by Bloomberg.
“PayPal Holdings Inc. said it has no intention of fining customers for spreading misinformation, after attracting criticism for publishing a new user agreement outlining such a plan.”
You don’t say. Especially given the tenets of that user agreement, as outlined by the publication.
“The issue gained traction over the weekend after the company published policy updates prohibiting users from using the PayPal service for activities identified by the company as ‘the sending, posting, or publication of any messages, content, or materials’ promoting misinformation, in an Acceptable Use Policy due to kick in on Nov. 3. A penalty of $2,500 could be imposed for each violation, according to the update,” the outlet continued.
Oh, how reasonable. And exactly what happens if one is fined $2,500 for spreading “misinformation” that is not at all misinformation, but rather inconvenient truths for the Biden brigade?
Especially in light of the widely acknowledged censorship campaign in favor of Hunter Biden, which undoubtedly swung the election even more in favor of its potentially predetermined result.
Needless to say, Google searches for “delete PayPal” soared by upwards of 1,392 percent, as reported by the Daily Wire, the outlet widely credited for drawing attention to PayPal’s outrageous policy in the first place.
Senator Tim Scott, however, remains unimpressed by the reversal of PayPal and has announced his intentions to look into the tech giant’s rather suspicious, highly partisan activities.
“Allowing private companies to become thought police would be egregious and illegal overreach. My office will be looking into the validity of PayPal’s new policy and taking any necessary action to stop this type of corporate activism,” Scott warned.
Elon Musk, a co-founder of PayPal, was also aghast by the company’s new and unimproved policies, which is particularly evident from his succinct commentary regarding the entire situation.
“It’s hard for me to openly criticize a company I used to love and gave so much to,” Musk mused thoughtfully.
No kidding. Especially when that company has gone seriously off the rails in terms of kowtowing to the wokes.
Nonetheless, between individuals like Senator Scott and Elon Musk, perhaps hope remains for the Big Tech industry in the United States.
In its current state, it is little more than a massive propaganda mouthpiece for the ultra-left.
AOC would never be where she is today, were it not for Twitter.
