GoFundMe Takes Down Page of Virginia Parents Fighting Critical Race Theory Curriculum

GoFundMe Takes Down Page of Virginia Parents Fighting Critical Race Theory Curriculum

“GoFundMe did not specify which term of service Mineo’s page violated.”

These parents are just trying to take control of their schools for their children. Leftists pressured GoFundMe to take down their page and the company folded.

The Washington Free Beacon reports:

GoFundMe Yanks Page Run by Virginia Parents Fighting Woke Curriculum

GoFundMe bowed to pressure from progressive activists and deactivated a fundraiser affiliated with a group of Virginia parents fighting the infusion of critical race theory in Loudoun County Public Schools.

Scott Mineo created his GoFundMe in mid-March after a members of a private Facebook group called Anti-Racist Parents of Loudoun County launched an intimidation campaign against a number of parent groups, including his Parents Against Critical Theory. The group compiled a list of parents, identified their spouses and employers, and called for members to find ways to shut down their websites, the Daily Wire reported.

GoFundMe did not specify which term of service Mineo’s page violated. Like other online platforms, GoFundMe can remove any user posts that it deems “in its sole discretion to be unacceptable,” according to its user guidelines. GoFundMe did not respond to the Washington Free Beacon’s request for comment in time for publication.

GoFundMe is the latest tech company to censor users whose speech does not conform with progressive orthodoxy. In February, Amazon cited its hate speech policy as justification for banning a conservative scholar’s book on gender dysphoria.

Mineo’s page had raised nearly $4,000 by March 22 when former Loudoun County School Board Equity Committee member Charlotte McConnell urged current committee members and the school board to report the page. Three days later, GoFundMe informed Mineo via email that his fundraiser was taken down because it constituted “prohibited conduct.”

Are there other sites like GoFundMe?

    The mensch in this arena is GiveSendGo. When both GoFundMe and Fundly shut down Kyle Rittenhouse’s legal defense fund, GiveSendGo did the heavy lifting for him until his lawyer set up a custom online funding account. Since then, they’ve been the goto funders for conservative causes “cancelled” by the Big Tech funders. As a result, the left (including professional journalists, shame on them) has shifted its target to shutting them down, but has been unsuccessful so far. PayPal and Discover have both refused to forward funds to GiveSendGo, but they continue to soldier on. I urge you to follow all the links above, they document truly disgusting behavior.

Fundly and GiveButter come to mind. Could also use Venmo or Paypal but both are likely to pull for the same reasons as GoFundMe.
