The online payment company has disabled the account of CofCC, a rightwing organization cited in a manifesto linked to the South Carolina shooting suspect Dylann Roof and has given to prominent Republican politicians.
Now attempts to donate to the organization end up with a message “this recipient is currently unable to receive money”. Dylann Roof faces charges of murder over the deaths of 9 people, all black, at a Bible study group at the Emanuel AME Church in Charleston on 17 June. The CofCC claimed they “had no idea” about the status of the organization’s PayPal account.
One of the legal advocacy groups, which has campaigned for PayPal to suspend the CofCC and other organizations described as hate groups, reported PayPal’s apparent action a few days ago. The CofCC is described as “a crudely white supremacist group”, and it is claimed that its website regularly condemns “race-mixing” and disseminates stories of a “victimized” white majority.
PayPal explains that it blocks donations to services violating its “offensive materials policy”. Its rules prohibit making a call to action for violence of any sort, promoting or glorifying hate, violence or racial intolerance or graphically portraying violence or the victims of violence. At the same time, stories published on the CofCC site often include images and feature headlines like “Family attacked in racially motivated lynching” and “Black power militants descend”.
Apparently, the murder of 9 African Americans in Charleston and subsequent media stories about the Council of Conservative Citizens had prompted PayPal’s action, but it is likely that the company would not confirm a suspension due to privacy concerns.

|Yet again Paypal sets it's self up as a non elected judge and jury. Perhaps it should be more concerned about paying it's full tax bill in Europe then beating a drum for back-door censorship of legal organisations.|

If you are real... You are the quintessential, USEFUL IDIOT. Some people will never wake up and there is nothing you can do to get them see how they are being used.
|I don't know what useful idiot means. Are you warning him from being someone that|
conservatives can use to show how unjustly maligned they are?
Now this next part you folks attacking Paypal. Read slowly and try to understand.
That was a very insulting thing to say. I said it to hopefully get your attention.
I am sure you are all smart, reasonable people.
As for those people attacking PayPal. First Paypal is a for profit corporation. It has the right to set standards and policies for those it does business with.
If you do business with a company that has certain policies, you are entering a contract with them to abide by those policies. If somebody doesn't like the sgreement then they can not do business with them.
The article summarizes Paypal's contract with those it does business with. Perhaps you did not know but corporations often have contracts with those they do business with.
That's what all those terms and agreements we agree to without reading are when we get some software
Here is the pertinent clauses from one of the agreements one makes when doing business with Paypal
PayPal Acceptable Use Policy
You may not use the PayPal service for activities that:
2. (f) the promotion of HATE, VIOLENCE, RACIAL INTOLERANCE or the financial exploitation of a crime,
I took the time to visit the COFCC website
They have that right to their opinions as far as the Government goes. No one should or has tried to ban their freedom of speech.
From the COFCC Statement of Principles.
We believe that the United States derives from and is an integral part of European civilization and the European people and that the American people and government should remain European in their composition and character.
We therefore oppose the massive immigration of non-European and non-Western peoples into the United States that threatens to transform our nation into a non-European majority in our lifetime.
We believe that illegal immigration must be stopped, IF NECCESSARY BY MILITARY FORCE (CAPTIALIZATION ADDED) and placing troops on our national borders
Stopping illegal immigration by Military Force, is a pretty good example of a call to violence.
Not enough hate in there for you. From Section 2 where the above "principle" is located
We also oppose all efforts to mix the races of mankind, to promote non-white races over the European-American people through so-called “affirmative action” and similar measures, to destroy or denigrate the European-American heritage, including the heritage of the Southern people, and to force the integration of the races.
So stop whining that a Private Corporation has rules. Do you go to a bank and expect to get a loan because the Bank can't impose it's rules on you?
No. So be reasonable. I don't think the COFCC had any invovlement. But some minds exposed to hate in so many ways, can be influenced by it. I don't single anyone out.
I single out all those who hate. Whoever they are and whatever their background is.
All the best

|@robbow123- So PalPal, as a private enterprise, has a right to set their own policy and standards in their business dealings? I guess freedom to you should be selective. How well does that statement hold up in the face of businesses that don't want to deal with illegal immigrants, gays and other (in their opinion) questionable groups? My guess is that's not ok with you, and not ok with all the other useful idiots out there screaming at the top of their lungs about it. Your double standards and hypocrisy are apparent to everyone but yourselves. Not only in this case but countless others. And if you don't know what a useful idiot is, you probably ARE one.||
