Once upon a time patreons behavior would have caused an outcry.
It still censorship, and abuse of Power.

Pateron s history for me, and it's been that way for awhile. I have been encouraging content creators to move to locals which I am glad you did.

The notion that vaccination doesn't prevent transmission is ridiculous. Of course it isn't 100% effective — it's not even 100% effective at preventing the illness, no vaccine is. However, when it does prevent the illness (90%+ of the time, allegedly) it does so by eliminating the virus before it can multiply significantly within your body. No virus in your body, no transmission to others.
"There's no evidence" is only because a study has not yet been completed on the effects on transmission. It's common sense that it will fall in line with the effects vaccination has on transmission of other viruses. I can similarly say, there's "no evidence" that this vaccine does not effect transmission the same way every vaccine effects transmission.
There's no evidence (yet) either way, but one result is strongly expected and the other would be extremely surprising.
That doesn't mean we shouldn't do studies, of course we should, but we also shouldn't be keeping draconian measures in place 'in case' of an unlikely result for which there is no evidence.

Whitney Webb is a heroically good investigative journalist. Patreon is trash.

Its time for the independent media creators to put their minds and contacts together and beat this bullshit back already.

The MSM is the largest spreader of propaganda! FOX, CNN, MSNBC and others are brainwashing and flat out lying to their audience everyday. Why are they allowed to do that? We the sheeple are headed for the slaughter house. The Biden administration is already gunning for anyone who is not going along with their bullshit. And people just go about their merry way wearing their fuking masks, ordering from Amazon, using Google search and talking to family and friends on facebook while our rights get stripped away from us. This will not end well. WAKE UP!

Our current socialist government is colluding with big tech to suppress free speech. Makes a person wonder what they've been hiding from us all along. Gollywallygeewhiz. C'mon man!

We already saw this happen to Sargon of Akkad (Carl Benjamin) before the coof for content not in any way linked to his Patreon account. Just business as usual for Patreon now.

I don't think this is new. If memory serves I believe Patreon banned Carl Benajmin (AKA Sargon of Akkad) for something he said in a YT video on another creator's channel. I think that was like 2 or 3 years ago.

They think they can be what they want to be by being the opposite of what they should be.

If you don’t have any strikes then you're most likely not reporting anything worth hearing. A percentage of this country is still informed, even if those numbers get smaller everyday. If you're reduced to staying in between the community guidelines and you're refusing to challenge any of the narratives, then what good are you to me? Everything should be challenged, and everyone should challenge some of the views they hold.

Thanks Allison for having the courage to deal with this headon. People have to understand that the time for standing by and doing nothing while everything this country was founded on is destroyed, has ended. We’ve taken our way of life here for granted for too long. Your right to live your life as you see fit is under attack by corrupt greedy people who now believe that “we the people” must be forced to do as we’re told . The harder they try, the more people are seeing that none of what’s happening is what they say it is.

Seems to me that a vaccine is, almost by definition, a preventative measure. Regardless of whether a particular vaccine is in fact effective, it is still a preventative measure. People take vaccines to prevent disease. It's about intent. Second issue: Do not be so quick to interpret "no evidence for X" as "evidence for not X." A good journalist should understand that people will have a tendency to fall for that logical fallacy and should therefore take care to point it out. Or, if you don't want to get into that, just don't just read off the easily misunderstood information. Third issue: Patreon sucks for suspending Ms. Webb's account, in my opinion.
