    Time to cut up that Visa card in your wallet?

    The "woke" totalitarians at Visa are starting to goose step all over the free speech of others. Their first target is the free speech social media site GAB. The busybodies at Visa arrogantly demanded that Gab censor what they call "hate speech" from its site. That term is very broadly defined by the left as including just about anything the left does not like. It is essentially and Orwellian Newspeak term used by those who hate free speech.

    Gab, whose model has always stressed free speech on its site refused those censorship demands. Visa then cut off Gab from processing Visa credit or debit cards, and even cancelled the personal Visa cards of Gab's CEO and his family.

    Visa is behaving like it is a government controlled repressive Red Chinese company. What they are doing is completely un-American and totally shameful.
