Censorship on Patreon

In October 2020 , Patreon announced that it would be taking action against accounts who use its platform to actively spread QAnon’s beliefs, «a growing threat».“QAnon-dedicated creators that are identified by our Policy and Trust & Safety teams will have their accounts removed from Patreon.”[1][2]

Customers «who have spread some QAnon ideas but “are not dedicated to spreading QAnon content” would also be given the opportunity to recant and «bring their accounts into compliance, according to the company.»

An account called SGTreport got demonetized[3]

EU Disinfolab pushing closing of accounts

On 18 December 2020, The European Union-funded[4] nominally independent EU DisinfoLab released a study questioning «whether Patreon's efforts to tackle disinformation prioritized English-language content over that of other languages. The study «identified at least 17 Spanish accounts that monetize and spread QAnon content and other conspiracy theories[5][6]

Besides Patreon's "failure to remove all accounts that directly reference QAnon", the study pointed to "a number of other accounts that monetize other conspiracies like COVID-19 denialism or unfounded theories about 5G that indirectly interweave QAnon ideas into their narratives."

"These examples illustrate that the measures implemented by Patreon are not fully enforced and still leave room for the circulation of QAnon theories on the platform," wrote the author also stating that «the problem of disinformation goes far beyond QAnon and argues that more action is needed against the spread and monetization of dangerous conspiracy theories on Patreon.
