Patreon is back in the news following another round of what appears to be an ideological purge from their platform. In the last few days the accounts for Milo Yiannopoulos, Carl Benjamin (Sargon of Akkad), and James Allsup were all terminated. These individuals all have different belief systems and principals and have been vocal critics of each other but their common denominator is a very vocal critique of the far-left and their creeping authoritarianism.
Following the termination of these accounts, many people speculated that Patreon was selectively enforcing their Community Guidelines in order to target right-of-center influencers. What better way to test this theory then to see if left-of-center Patreon users are being dinged for their “manifest observable behavior”.
Here is what we found.
There are several far-left users who appear to be blatantly violating Pareon’s Community Guidelines. These users are raising thousands of dollars each month and are actively using that money to organize and advocate for violent and often illegal criminal activity.
Here is the breakdown on just a few of the larger accounts who are actively violating Patreon’s Community Guidelines. Should you decide to submit a report to Patreon, you will be asked to provide evidence. You can also contact their Trust & Safety team directly at Guidelines@patreon.com. We strongly recommend using the archived links we have provided below. Also, take a screenshot of your response from Patreon and share it on social media with the hashtag #DefundAntifa.
Revolutionary Left Radio:
This far-left podcast currently has over 700 Patrons who donate monthly to their show, which is hosted by Brett Anderson aka “Breht Oshea”. Brett has a criminal record and is a vocal proponent of armed confrontation with the state and with people who he calls “reactionaries” (ie. people who oppose Communism).
Here are just some of the more inflammatory tweets from both the Revolutionary Left Radio twitter account and Brett.
In this thread, they openly admit their ideology and tactics are “authoritarian” but they believe their violence is justified because it is for the greater good.
Thread: I know we add qualifiers like “democratic” and “libertarian” to socialism to identify tendencies, and some use “authoritarian” as a pejorative; but all politics is “authoritarian” in a world where people disagree; and nothing is more “authoritarian” than revolutions…

Here, they talk about being armed and “militant”.
I like my working class like I like my antifascism: armed and militant.

Here, they talk about putting every fascist (ie. people who oppose their far-left ideology) “against the wall”, which is a reference to execution.
Fuck it. I just identify as a militant revolutionary communist who wants to put every fascist in the world against the wall and violently expropriate the wealth and property of the owning class.
I’m hoping that catches on! Haha

Here, they share a quote from the Communist dictator, Mao Zedong who brutally murdered millions of his own citizens in order to advance his authoritarian ideology.
“A revolution is not a dinner party, or writing an essay, or painting a picture; it cannot be so refined, so leisurely and gentle, so temperate, kind, restrained and magnanimous.
A revolution is an insurrection, an act of violence by which one class overthrows another.”

Here, Brett appears to be supporting the work of the New People’s Army (NPA), which is a State Department designated Foreign Terrorist Organization that is responsible for the death of at least 158 innocent civilians.
”According to subsequent surveys carried out by U.S. oil engineers, the natural gas reserves of Liguasan alone amount to $580 billion.
At the same time the island is also home to robust people’s movements and has a strong presence of armed groups including the New Peoples Army.” pic.twitter.com/09VCXlGFvU

Here, Brett tells his followers that they “should use” tactics like sabotage and asymmetrical warfare.
In the meantime, yes, underground activity, asymmetrical warfare, guerrilla tactics, sabotage, etc. are all tools in the tool box. We should use them.

The Guillotine Podcast:
This far-left podcast currently has over 350 Patrons who donate monthly to their show, which is hosted by an extremist who uses the moniker “Dr. Bones” as well as Brett Anderson. “Dr. Bones”, who is also a regular guest on Revolutionary Left Radio, is a self described “Egoist-Communist, Insurrectionist, and an Illegalist”. He also has his own dedicated Patreon page with that he has been using in order to “inspire insurrection”. After we brought this to the attention of Patreon and Patreon support, “Dr. Bones” removed that language from his page as well as language where he discussed firing “massive .44 rounds at the heads of politicians and capitalists”. Not to worry, we archived it before he made the changes.
The violent communist who is raising over $1K/month on @Patreon updated his account and removed "inspire insurrection" from his goals
He also removed the language about firing "massive .44 rounds at the heads of politicians and capitalists".

Here are just some of the more inflammatory tweets from both “Dr. Bones” and The Guillotine Podcast
Here, he says that liberals “get the wall” too. Another reference to execution.
This is why liberals get the wall too.

Here he discusses “outshooting” his political opponents in lieu of a debate.
Seen some Anarchists getting troubled by Tankies again.
Reminder: in the event of an actual insurrection, riot, or revolt, you do not have to out-debate your political opponents.
You have to outshoot them.
Internet is for propaganda only.

In this tweet, he encourages his followers to “start building guerrilla cells” to “up the insurrection”.
The text in the images he share suggests carrying out attacks against “police stations, political party offices, etc.” as well as “public buses, trams, and trains”.

Here, he praises the work of far-left extremists in France who burned 50 vehicles in an arson attack.
LONG LIVE THE INSURRECTION! Glory to another successful attack! https://t.co/iRAKXAczgE
— 🔫🏴Dr. Bones🏴💣 (@Ole_Bonsey) September 21, 2017
Here he shares an essay that attempts to justify the use of pipe bombs and shotgun in order to advance his far-left ideology.
" Through violent insurrection, the common person finds power within themself…The liberation of all cannot be won through the ballot box, but it most definitely can be won through the pipe bomb and shotgun."https://t.co/Nvy1qZq0eS

Here, The Guillotine Podcast encourage their followers to start building “clandestine cells” and provide instructions on exactly how they can do that.
Yes, voting will not change the oppressive system we live under. But neither will arguing online.
Did you know every guerrilla force has relied upon a network of clandestine cells to organize the underground? Did you know YOU CAN START BUILDING CELLS NOW?https://t.co/fMv9c5xvy3 pic.twitter.com/KANyTxU8GA

In on of their episodes they praised the work of the Informal Anarchist Federation (IAF), which is a Foreign Terrorist Organization responsible for numerous bombing campaigns throughout Italy.
