This is the second time GoFundMe paused the fundraiser.
The Canadian Freedom Convoy to Ottawa has faced backlash from Big Tech along with cruel rhetoric from Canadian leaders and the left.
All they want is to stop government overreach and end the COVID vaccine mandates.
GoFundMe Started its war with the convoy last week when it paused its fundraiser on January 27th when it hit $5 million because it requires “fundraisers be transparent about the flow of funds and have a clear plan for how those funds will be spent.”
The company turned the fundraiser back on. GoFundMe only released $1 million of that $6 million later that week even after the organizers provided a detailed plan.
The convoy started its journey to Ottawa on January 29th.
The fundraiser hit $10 million between January 17th and February 2!
GoFundMe paused the fundraiser again for the exact same reason even though the organizers gave them a plan last week:
This fundraiser is currently paused and under review to ensure it complies with our terms of service and applicable laws and regulations. Our team is working 24/7 and doing all we can to protect both organizers and donors. Thank you for your patience.
The description of the fundraiser includes: “In order for your generous donations to flow smoothly, the good people at Go Fund Me will be sending donations directly to our bulk fuel supplier and are working out the details now which means your hard earned money is going to straight to who it was meant for and need not flow through anyone else. Any left over donations will be donated to a credible Veterans organization which will be chosen by the donors.”
I mean, WHAT? What is the freaking problem? GoFundMe told Fox News Digital:
“Recent events in Ottawa, Canada, have generated widespread discussion about the Freedom Convoy 2022 fundraiser on GoFundMe. We wanted to provide clarity around the actions that our global Trust & Safety and Customer Care teams take every day, just as they have with the Freedom Convoy fundraiser,” GoFundMe wrote in part.
GoFundMe went on to list the means by which it intend to ensure the integrity and transparency of the organizers of the fundraiser.
“As the activity surrounding the protest evolves, we have been monitoring the fundraiser to ensure the funds are going to the intended recipients and that the fundraiser remains within our Terms of Service. Our monitoring includes maintaining close communication with the organizer as well as collaborating with local law enforcement,” GoFundMe said.
“This process takes time and may slow down the withdrawal process. If the fundraiser does violate our Terms of Service or does not directly benefit the intended beneficiary, we will remove it from the platform,” the site added.
You. Already. Did. This.
I wonder what will happen next. Facebook already targeted America’s “Convoy to D.C. 2022” group by removing it along with the personal pages of the man who formed the group and one of the truckers.DONATE
