PayPal is partnering with the Anti-Defamation League to determine who can use their services.
The partnership was announced on Monday, with the companies claiming that they are going to “investigate how extremist and hate movements in the United States take advantage of financial platforms to fund their criminal activities,” according to a report from Reuters.
Of course, the ADL has been known to brand anyone who supports Donald Trump or holds views to the right of Karl Marx as an “extremist.”
“The initiative will be led through ADL’s Center on Extremism, and will focus on uncovering and disrupting the financial flows supporting white supremacist and anti-government organizations,” the report continued. “It will also look at networks spreading and profiting from antisemitism, Islamophobia, racism, anti-immigrant, anti-Black, anti-Hispanic and anti-Asian bigotry.”
PayPal said that the user data collected through the initiatives will be shared with other firms in the financial industry, law enforcement and politicians.
