Capital One has closed a credit card belonging to Proud Boys leader Enrique Tarrio due to the bank “discovering adverse past or present legal action involving an individual or entity associated with the account.”
Tarrio is facing a misdemeanor charge of destruction of property in connection to the alleged burning of a church’s Black Lives Matter banner in DC last year and local weapons charges.
On June 29, Capital One sent Tarrio a letter saying they are closing the account that he has had for approximately 12 years — and that there is nothing he can do about it.
Speaking to the Gateway Pundit, Tarrio expressed despair that Republican leadership is not doing anything to protect people from this type of overreach.
“I don’t know if I’m numb to getting banned off platforms already or this is acceptance to the way of the new ‘West’. I don’t know what it would take to finally get Republicans united in speaking up and legislating against this unconstitutional and inhuman practice of definancing conservatives. Maybe if it would happen to them…because it will…they’ll start doing something about it,” Tarrio said. “For now I will do what any entrepreneur would do…and that’s find a temporary solution to this problem until it gets fixed.”
As Tarrio was sending this comment to Gateway, he discovered that he was also banned from his credit card processor was while he was typing.
Those who wish to contribute to Tarrio while he tries to get around this blockade can do so on Zelle using the email “[email protected].” At least until they cave to liberal pressure and do the same thing, that is.

Tarrio has become something of a boogey man for the left — constantly smeared and presented as a cartoon villain by the liberal media for his involvement with the pro-Trump male social group the Proud Boys.
The Gateway Pundit has reached out to Capital One asking if they will be banning everyone who charged with misdemeanors — like drug dealers or illegal aliens. We will update this story if a response is provided.
Banking bans have become the latest tactic being used against right wing voices that get a little bit too loud.
The National File reported in February that Gab CEO Andrew Torba said that his platform was banned from three different banks in three weeks alone for “political reasons.” One of the banks told Torba on Monday morning that they could no longer do business with the site because of “all the bad things the press has written about Gab.”
In June, Wells Fargo banned former U.S. House candidate and current American Greatness contributor Pete D’Abrosca and former Republican Senate candidate and America First activist Lauren Witzke.
Speaking to National File about the situation, D’Abrosca stated, “Clearly there’s been some kind of conspiracy within Wells Fargo to ban prominent right wingers from using their banking services. This is yet another reminder that major monopolies in both banking and tech are not operating within a purely free market capitalistic system. They must be broken up, and their CEOs and executive level employees and board members jailed until we can figure out how to stop discrimination from ‘private’ companies against the political right.”
