    GoFundMe’s New Policy Prevents Kim Davis From Collecting Conservatives’ Cash For Her ‘Religious Heroism’

    Unlike Memories Pizza, which raised hundreds of thousands of dollars when they went under for their bigotry, Kim Davis is a little too late to the party. GoFundMe’s policy has changed, and according to Addicting Info, no matter how her supporters twist it, no money’s coming her way if the site upholds their policy.

    Sorry Kim Davis, GoFundMe’s New Policy Prevents Conservatives From Raising Money For You

    As we’ve seen a dizzying amount of times, conservatives have used the popular fundraising site GoFundMe to enrich and support people who they believe are on their side of the “culture war” – including officers who have killed unarmed black teenagers, Tea Partiers who got sick after refusing to sign up for Obamacare, and an endless number of bakeries run by Christians who want to discriminate against gay people. Watching these bakers and cops make fortunes (literally) just by “standing up” for conservative values has had the effect that anyone with a conservative point of view and a desire to be flooded with money can milk the conservative GoFundMe cash cow.

    On GoFundMe’s end, this has been a PR nightmare. It’s not clear exactly what the site’s creators expected when they set up the page, but it’s hard to imagine they thought they would be faced with dozens of new campaigns set up for killers, racists, and homophobes on a weekly basis. After watching several high-profile conservative faux-victims become millionaires by exploiting their site, the creators finally announced that enough was enough. In April, they announced that they would block certain types of disgusting campaigns from thriving on GoFundMe. More specifically – and this is where Davis gets screwed out of the millions surely waiting for her – the site has a specific policy about criminals:

    Campaigns in defense of formal charges or claims of heinous crimes, violent, hateful, sexual or discriminatory acts.

    GoFundMe will not allow campaigns that benefit individuals or groups facing formal charges or claims of serious violations of the law. The amended term can be found under the ‘What’s Not Allowed’ section of our terms, as well as below:

    Campaigns in defense of formal charges or claims of heinous crimes, violent, hateful, sexual or discriminatory acts

    I'm sure she'll find another way to cash in. Maybe she can appear on the Jerry Springer show.

    Hypocritical gofundme should stop funding "black lives matter groups" who advocate the assassination of cops.
