With every extra Patron it increases our chances of becoming a real credible news source able to give some decent representation to ‘the left’ in the media . It allows us to reduce our dependency on social media and to grow our own platform away from the increasingly stagnant and unreasonable algorithms Facebook impose on us. Furthermore it insulates us from any shenanigans due to the currently dysfunctional fact-checking protocols we have all been running into, where un-elected fact checkers are empowered to deem news as ‘fake’ and take your page down for the smallest of infractions. By signing us as a Patron and pledging a couple of quid a month to us you’d be helping us in so many ways. We understand times are hard at the moment and there isn’t a lot of spare cash to throw about, but if you consider yourself unrepresented in the media and have enjoyed our irreverent take on politics over the past 7 years then please consider supporting us. Sad as it is to admit, we don’t stand much of a chance against the tax fiddling billionaire media barons without money. We want to expand and strengthen our hand for the next election. Furthermore and I make no attempts to hide the fact, I am currently self employed on Universal Credit and the proverbial Sword of Damocles has been hanging over my head for some time now. Anything you can do to help will mean plucking me from the jaws of Iain Duncan Smith’s welfare nightmare and allow me to pay myself to pump out endless posts about how vile Universal Credit (and multitude of other Tories policies) are. Also it could mean a nice shiny website to build our movement from, also potentially we could start paying for articles by journalists, expanding our online presence and ultimately become a bigger pain in the bum for the corrupt British blob. Setting up the Patreon over the past week inevitably sparked far fetched thoughts of poetic justice, where the reason I had to set one up is because of Universal Credit and by becoming a patron you would be enabling me to go-professional and try to build an online anti-Tory media death star from my bedroom… I digress…
In all seriousness running Wear Red and helping to run a network of other partner pages has indeed become a full time job which we are receiving no money for. As much as I would love to continue things as they are, I’ve been reduced to throwing myself to the mercy of you guys in the hope enough of you will help save the day.
Finally, I know… You’re being asked to basically pay toward something you’ve been getting for free, so I understand it’s a big ask. Realistically I need 400-500 Patrons to be able to go full-time. The page has about 87,000+ followers. If just 0.5-1% of you came on-board it’d make it all possible. All patrons beyond that would go toward growing the network, more editors, better stories, a better planned and coordinated approach to counteracting smears in the MSM, and expanding our influence against the Tories and complicit media service to which we perceive to be a grave threat to national security and our future well-beings. So I’m confident in the knowledge you know this isn’t a get rich quick scheme or attempt to con you, it’s the real deal for me and has been for a long time now. We’d be privileged and honoured to take up the mantle and take the fight to them, if only you’ll help us do it. X
Solidarity to you all!
