Gratipay allowed its SJW employee to stop my donations in secret.

Right now, I am attempting to patriate myself (and after me, my upcoming business) into a country whose laws are friendly to wrecking shit on the Internet. This raises my expenses significantly. For example, three times in the next nine months I need a direct flight for me and my woman to another nonextradition country and back while my visa situation gets taken care of. I've found that unless you have prophet-tier wasta here, business generally moves at a snail's pace. I do not have the cash for this. For these expenses I rely on tips from my readers, and every cent is critical right now.

I'd describe the rhetorical product I want to make as the Heimskringla meets Roman satire. I am firmly in line with the will of the framers. Jefferson said that the tree of liberty must be watered from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants. Our framers insisted on the Second Amendment because they wanted us to drag our leaders into the streets on a cyclical basis and slaughter them like swine each and every time they got out of line. I think we have neglected this duty for too long and need to return to the will of our forefathers. We are at war. We did not start this war. We do not want this war. Yet war is upon us, and we need to fight this war by the rules of engagement highlighted by our enemies. Our enemies who killed 78 men, women, and children at Waco. Our enemies who shot a fourteen year old boy and a woman holding her infant in the back at Ruby Ridge. A van at the Murrah building did not deliver a lesson about tyranny impactful enough to the minds of federal agents. Tyranny has only grown in amplitude and frequency.

Naturally, my rhetoric is not for everyone and causes significant amounts of liberal outrage. This shows why what my words are necessary: political correctness has neutered our culture. People express hatred towards me for saying we should use force to defend ourselves from those that violate our human rights. People should be attacking our enemies who are actually out on a daily basis committing acts of murder, fraud, sabotage, and torture against citizens in every country of the world. For over a decade my goal was to create a political bloc that believes in the transformative power of bloodshed to put fear into the hearts of tyrants. This will continue to be my goal. If you don't like it eat shit for all I care, because the First Amendment, the will of my forefathers, and common sense protect everything I say.

Now, back to the reader tips which are literally critical to my continued survival. One of the services I used up until this point is Gratipay (formerly Gittip). It states that its goal is to fund a people instead of projects, which is inline with my needs. It has weekly pledges which I was hoping people would contribute via instead of single time donations. A couple were starting to trickle in (though my constituents seem to vasly prefer BTC/LTC/XRP/DOGE) and then one of the developers over at Gratipay who happens to be friends with the SJW crowd, Sean Linsey, decided he was offended by my politics and needed to be banned from the service. Log excerpts here are displayed descending by date:

After weeks of Sean Linsey urging that I be banned from Gratipay, he has his SJW friend who he follows on Twitter start a twitter campaign criticizing the service for allowing me on.

Right after these tweets, the anonymous donations that I was receiving via Gratipay suddenly stop. This was done in secret, with no notification that I would cease receiving income from Gratipay. Simultaneously, a flood of fictitious complaints resulted in the suspension of my Paypal account containing hundreds of dollars, meaning it is likely that Gratipay's employee wants to have my funds cut off universally, not just at his website.

Yesterday I e-mailed the founder of Gratipay asking him if his employee killed my donations. I have yet to receive a response. I am thankful for Gratipay's contributions to many of my friends in the free software community. I think they do great work. I just wish they'd enumerate a list of political ideologies that are not welcome to use their service, and have some sort of transparency and appeals process for behind-closed-doors politically based persecutions of those on their service.

All this highlights the rot that is destroying the West. I have never abused anyone, as Sean Linsey accuses me of by implication. I have never done anything except publicly and lawfully express my opinion, and it is one that he disagrees with, so therefore I should not be allowed to earn a living. This all underscores the problem that the SJWs present, and why they should be utterly flushed out of our society. We believe they have a right to speak, but they do not believe the same for us. The only thing they think is within our rights is torture, murder, and silencing by the government. This is why we need a day of the rope. These nanny state liberals refuse to tolerate a society where those they dislike are not completely cut out of commerce.

In the meantime, I need your help restoring my income. I've setup a Patreon: and have various cryptocurrency addresses on my profile there. If this gets killed, perhaps we need to discuss creating free speech friendly crowdfunding services.
