‘Social credit system’ is here: Candace Owens waves big red flag over JP Morgan’s ‘frightening’ move against Ye

For a week now, people on both sides of the political aisle have been popping popcorn to accompany the social media storm that has erupted over Kanye “Ye” West’s latest antics, but, as Candace Owens noted on Twitter on Wednesday, the drama has taken an “extremely frightening” turn that needs to concern every American, regardless of how they feel about the unstable rapper.

According to Owens, Ye has been “kicked out of” JP Morgan Chase Bank, presumably for the recent antisemitic remarks that got him booted from both Instagram and Twitter– though the bank didn’t specify its motive for the shocking move.

“Earlier today I learned that @kanyewest was officially kicked out of JPMorgan Chase bank,” Owens tweeted. “I was told there was no official reason given, but they sent this letter as well to confirm that he has until late November to find another place for the Yeezy empire to bank.”

In the letter, which Owens attached to her tweet, the bank states that “JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A. (the ‘Bank’) has decided to end its banking relationship with Yeezy, LLC and its affiliated entities (collectively, the ‘Company’).”

“As I gather my thoughts about this,” wrote Owens, “I want to say that I do not care what you think about Ye West— but I very much care what you think about this.”

“We have reached extremely frightening times in this country,” she stated.

And, of course, if a bank can shut down someone as powerful — and as wealthy — as Ye for simply speaking his mind, no matter how unhinged that mind may be, Owens is correct: The times are, indeed, “extremely frightening.”

Canceling people on social media for “wrongthink” is hardly new. But increasingly, those with views that do not align with the liberal left are seeing their ability to conduct business — and with it, their livelihoods — shredded by financial institutions hell-bent on scoring high ESG points.

As BizPac Review reported, just last week, PayPal was allegedly willing to fine its users $2,500 for, among other things, spreading misinformation.

It was forced to reverse course only after the online backlash reached a fever pitch and Elon Musk “agreed” with former PayPal president David Marcus, who tweeted his disdain for the company’s new Acceptable Use Policy.

“A private company now gets to decide to take your money if you say something they disagree with,” Marcus wrote. “Insanity.”

“We have lost all moral high ground when it comes to criticizing China,” stated Lavern Spicer. “We have a social credit system in America.”

And that is a thought that should chill every American to the bone.

As one Twitter user pointed out, “Millions of Chinese people can’t take trains and planes anymore because of their low social credit score.”

Comedian and podcaster Josh Denny spelled out the dangers of this slick-as-snot slope for all Americans.

“This proves that NONE of us are free from the elites that run this country,” he tweeted. “@kanyewest is loaded, but he’s not ‘in the club.'”

“The war in this country isn’t about black vs. white, or gay vs. straight,” he explained. “It’s THEM against US, and they won’t stop until they have it ALL.”

“Our government has become a corporatocracy – incentivizing private industry to subvert the constitution and disincentivize free speech,” he continued. “They won’t kill us; they’ll just pay private companies to do it with pharmaceuticals, bank freezes, mandates, and seizures of assets.”

“First it was the ‘fringe’ – Alex Jones, Gavin McInnes, Milo Yiannopolis – now it’s the most famous entertainer on the planet. It’s going to be everyone,” he warned. “They take your money before you get paid. They f***ing own all of us, and they’re getting bolder in reminding us by the day.”
