Activists Target Top Patreon Accounts, Proving Hypocrisy. A few top podcasts have histories of breaking Patreon's rules and some activists have begun to highlight these channels.
One thread on reddit was recently removed as it provided proof of a top Patreon podcast overtly breaking the rules. This has created an interesting problem as people in favor of free speech won't resort to the same tactics employed by those seeking to deplatform people.

The Number 5 largest account has recently joined in to support Dave Rubin, Jordan Peterson, over the banning of Sargon of Akkad, aka Carl Benjamin. Could this start a cascade that ends with Patreon facing its end?
