Baby grifters learning the trade.
New York (CNN Business)
GoFundMe will no longer allow people to fundraise for travel expenses used for potentially violent political events after pro-Trump protesters used the platform to rake in cash ahead of storming the US Capitol.
"Due to the violence, GoFundMe has removed numerous fundraisers intended to raise money for travel expenses," a spokesperson for the company told CNN Business. The spokesperson said the company will also remove fundraisers for travel expenses for any future political events where there is a "risk of violence by the attendees."
The company will "continue to remove fundraisers that attempt to spread misinformation about the election, promote conspiracy theories and contribute to or participate in attacks on US democracy," the spokesperson said.
The online fundraising company joins a long list of corporations that are making statements in an attempt to take action against the violence. Payment company Stripe will no longer process Trump campaign donations, and Airbnb announced Monday that people who are associated with violent hate groups were removed from the platform. The home-sharing company also canceled reservations and removed accounts associated with hate group members, including the Proud Boys.
GoFundMe has also been used for good during this chaotic and violent time. People used the platform to raise money for Officer Brian D. Sicknick's family. Sicknick died on January 7, following injuries sustained during the the Capitol siege on Wednesday.
feel free to insert you're own piece o' shitzky
If anything, this assault on our government exposed how deep in the governmental structure this fascist wing has infiltrated. They are here, they are real and unless dealt with an iron fist they will continue to spread unabated like the virus. A change of the executive isn't enough unless all branches rise and put this threat to freedom down with a brick. We fall, democracies world wide fall. I can't say it enough, worldwide, freedoms of peoples rest on our shoulders. Not Joe's, ours.
Looked like a little girl who just found out daddy was a criminal. Oh wait, she is a little girl and her daddy is a criminal.
For inciting a riot at the very least. After the shit he said today, even more so than his derelict traitor father, he flat out told these pieces of shit to do what they did. He threatened congressional members with harm, flat out. That piece of shit needs cuffs on him NOW!
