Infowars has 10 business days to find a new payment processor. PayPal has had enough of Alex Jones. Welcome to the right side of history.
PayPal sent the site, a well-known garbage fire of conspiracy theories, violence and racism with a supplement side hustle, the notice it needs to find another company to handle it’s transactions, joining several other Silicon Valley companies in disavowing Jones and Infowars message.
The Infowars site’s “promotion of hate and discrimination runs counter to our core value of inclusion,” PayPal said in a statement . “Our values are the foundation for the decision we made this week,” PayPal added.
Jones and Infowars have infamously ginned up the conspiracy theory the Newtown, Connecticut shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary was a “false flag” operation. The accusations have driven families into hiding who lost children in the massacre.
Good choice, PayPal.
