[Ed. – Visa and MasterCard need to wise up. The Department of Defense and FBI have already either stopped consulting with the Southern Poverty Law Center altogether (DOD), or cut back on cooperation significantly (FBI). The SPLC is basically itself a hate group, dedicated to defaming organizations with mainstream conservative, Christian, and Jewish or pro-Israel views.]
The David Horowitz Freedom Center has had their donation processing system blocked by Visa and Mastercard allegedly following a campaign by the Southern Poverty Law Center.
The David Horowitz Freedom Center stated in a recent email that its ability to accept donations by credit card has been disabled by both Visa and Mastercard following a campaign by the SPLC to label the Freedom Center as a hate group. This situation comes shortly after Robert Spencer of Jihad Watch was forced off the funding platform Patreonfollowing pressure from Mastercard.
The Freedom Center is the next target of the SPLC, and they are using Mastercard and Visa again in their attempt to shut down conservative voices.
