While crowdsourcing funds for BLM rioters, GoFundMe denied Rittenhouse Fundraising

After Kyle Rittenhouse was cleared of all charges on Friday, the crowdsourced fundraising service GoFundMe tried to defend their choice to end Kyle Rittenhouse's efforts early last year.

“GoFundMe’s Terms of Service prohibit raising money for the legal defense of an alleged violent crime. In light of the Kyle Rittenhouse trial, we want to clarify when and why we removed certain fundraisers in the past,” the platform wrote on Twitter with a link to a company statement.

Despite the fact that Rittenhouse was denied crowdsourcing funding for a political show trial accusing the shooter of first-degree manslaughter in a case that was plainly self-defense, the website continues to offer fundraising campaigns for Black Lives Matter activists accused of violent crimes.

One campaign, titled “CHARGED WITH BANK ROBBERY DURING GEORGE FLOYD RIOT,” has raised $140 of a $40,000 goal for a couple arrested in May last year.

“My girlfriend was released with no paper, but unfortunately they kept me and charged me with bank larceny,” the description reads, adding that the charges have since changed to “attempted bank robbery.”

Another titled “Fundraiser for Tuscon Arrestees” is soliciting donations for 12 people who face felony riot charges. The campaign has so far raised nearly $7,200 of a $12,000 goal.

The “Tia Pugh Legal Defense Fund” is raising money for a 22-year-old Alabama woman arrested for criminal mischief and inciting a riot. The fund has just fallen about $50 short of a $3,000 goal.

However, because the then-17-year-old gunman was charged with a criminal offense, Rittenhouse was unable to collect money via the website. Violence emerging from the left, according to the political elite, isn't violence. In the name of social justice, it's ethically correct.
