Faith Goldy Banned From Patreon

Prominent Canadian conservative and nationalist commentator Faith Goldy had her patreon account deleted for allegedly violating the platform’s hate speech policies. Goldy released a video on her YouTube channel explaining how this unfolded sharing the email she received from Maria from Patreon’s Trust and Safety team which stated:

“I want to let you know that your creator page has been removed for violating our Community Guidelines on Hate Speech. You recently sincerely recited the Fourteen Words on a podcast. At Patreon, we believe in freedom of speech and promoting diverse viewpoints – we want to create a platform that empowers creators to share and debate ideas. That said, we do not support exclusionary ideologies”

What are the Fourteen Words? It refers to a slogan used by white nationalists and the alt-right “We must secure the existence of our people and a future for white children”. While the words themselves may not be controversial the fact that they are used in tandem by white supremacists and neo-Nazis with the phrase ”Heil Hitler” to create the number 1488 means that anyone who uses this phrase is seen to sympathise with such people.

Goldy recited the Fourteen Words when requested during an appearance on the YouTube channel Millennial Woes in December 2017. The channel is operated by Scottish alt-right personality Colin Robertson.

Goldy stated she had no regrets about using the words and denied she is an adherent to an exclusionary ideology and claimed Patreon is adhering to an exclusionary ideology by banning her. She went onto attack Patreon for allowing left-wing terrorist organization Antifa to collect funds on the platform, suggesting this type of speech was allowed because one of their employees is a member of Antifa.

Goldy was originally a presenter and reporter for the Candian alt-media website The Rebel Media and was one of their most prominent personalities. She garnered worldwide controversy for her coverage of Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia in August 2017 organized by the alt-right to defend the statue of Confederate general Robert E. Lee. Goldy was only meters away when James Alex Fields drove a car into the crowd killing Heather Heyer.
