Visa, Mastercard has blocked service to the David Horowitz Freedom Center because the fraudulent Southern Policy Law Center (SPLC) told them that the conservative organization is a “hate group.”

The evidence is inescapable that the left is rising up as one and engaging in a civil war against conservatism.

The Daily Wire tells us of the crooked SPLC’s actions against Horowitz:

Under pressure from the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), Visa and Mastercard have blocked donations to the conservative think tank David Horowitz Freedom Center (DHFC) after it was labeled a hate group by the militantly left-leaning watchdog organization.

In an email to supporters on Wednesday under the subject “Transaction Denied,” the DHFC announced that at the request of the Southern Poverty Law Center, the two credit card companies will no longer be allowing donations to DHFC.

“We’re under attack by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC),” the email begins. “For years, the SPLC has labeled the Freedom Center a hate group and tried to get organizations like Amazon, Facebook and Twitter to ban us and silence our message.”

“Yesterday, SPLC finally convinced MasterCard and Visa to cut us off. Now we can’t process donations from any major credit card companies.”

Horowitz published a message about the incident to Breitbart News:

It’s cynical, calculated and supported by the Democratic Party. The reason Mastercard and Visa gave us for cutting us off and thus sabotaging our online fund-raising operation is that the SPLC told them that we were a hate group.

It is wrong to focus on the Tech heads as the culprits because as businessmen they have a vested interest in keeping their platforms politically neutral. They have been threatened by Senator Mark Warner and other Democrats if they don’t censor conservatives. The fact that Mastercard and Visa are now part of this juggernaut indicates how dangerous this has become.

We are seeing the left using its positions in banking and technology to attack us.

Richard Spencer, Dennis Prager, Breitbart News, David Horowitz, the National Rifle Association, all of Alex Jones’ offerings, all are being systematically removed from their ability to raise money and continue operations.

This is the danger we are coming to, folks. The left is declaring full out warfare against anyone who does not agree with them. They are using every illicit method to shut down conservatives from biased tech giants deploying their power to destroy center-right opinion on the Internet, now to the whole system of finance being turned against us and used as a weapon to eliminate the freedoms and livelihoods of conservatives.

Liberals are pulling out all the stops and using every weapon to attack us, now. If you are a Republican or a conservative, your very jobs are at stake. Liberals want you either to conform to their left-wing, un-American policies and ideas or they want you utterly shunned from every area of society.

It is no less than a full-blown civil war that they want.
