GoFundMe has reportedly removed the account of the Glazov Gang, who were raising funds for an anti-Sharia law tour and their conservative web show.
According to a blog post made by The Glazov Gang, GoFundMe “suspended The Glazov Gang campaign without any notice or explanation, nor have they responded to any queries.”
“This conduct by GoFundMe is part of its larger effort to shut down the efforts of Anni Cyrus, the producer of The Glazov Gang,” they continued, adding, “Recently, also with no notice or explanation, GoFundMe deleted Anni’s entire account while she was raising funds for her anti-Sharia tour — wiping out all of her donor history and four open campaigns, one of which was The Glazov Gang campaign.”
“This development is part of a current onslaught by companies who are closing their platforms to those who dissent from the Left’s totalitarian worldview,” the web show concluded. “Freedom of speech and conscience are being annihilated each passing day right before our eyes.”
Cyrus also confirmed that GoFundMe had removed her account in a post on Facebook, where she has over 20,000 followers.
“Dear supporters, today, with no notice or explanation, GoFundMe has deleted my entire account, wiping out all of my donor history, and four open campaigns,” Cyrus claimed. “You can help me by writing a brief email note to GoFundMe Customer Service, to lobby them to restore my account history, at the very least.”
In 2015, GoFundMe removed a fundraising campaign for the family of a “Draw Muhammad” organizer, who went into hiding following violent threats, while last year, the platform removed a campaign which sought to raise funds for an advertisement linking failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton to an anti-Israel author.
In the past, left-wing journalists and activists have also attempted to pressure the platform into removing fundraisers for events featuring former Breitbart Senior Editor Milo Yiannopoulos.
Following left-wing riots on President Trump’s inauguration day in January, where a limo owned by a Muslim immigrant was set on fire and destroyed by rioters, Trump supporters raised nearly $24,000 for the man using GoFundMe.
