Tesla CEO Elon Musk accused GoFundMe of hypocrisy after the company canceled the Freedom Convoy fundraiser on Friday after it actively supported a campaign for the Capitol Hill Occupied Protest in Seattle.The crowdfunding platform claimed the convoy fundraiser - which raised $10million Canadian dollars ($8 million USD) in support of truckers protesting against COVID-19 vaccine mandates - violated its terms of service 'which prohibits the promotion of violence and harassment.' GoFundMe plans to distribute the remaining $9million of donated funds to 'credible and established charities' that were reportedly chosen by the convoy organizers and have been verified by the platform.

A breach of contract occurs when one party in a binding agreement fails to deliver according to the terms of the agreement. Sue them to hell and back. On second thought, just sue them, then leave them there.

Since GoFundMe stole the money, they should be held accountable in court.

I appreciate Musk’s ‘harsh’ words through his tweets. However, if he really wants to show solidarity and support for the truckers, why doesn’t Musk at least match the dollar amount frozen by Gofundme and donate the money directly to the organizers? Musk needs to literally put his money where his mouth is. He seems to have a LOT of discretionary cash.

Re: No. 3; Just call your credit card company and tell them you agreed to one thing and they changed the terms of your contribution therefore I am NOT going to pay for this fraudulent charge. They will take care of it for you, with no charge.

How is this legal? I’ve seen no signs at all of violence and harassment. The group in Seattle not only harassed people, IIRC, they even murdered someone who wandered into their occupied zone. The absolute worst thing that the panty-waist PM could do is bring in the military to force the truckers out. Talk about your terrible optics! It will look like Hungary in 1956 or Paris in 1940. And it would rally most of the planet against him. Canada has never had a civil war but Trudy might just start one. I would like to see those charities which were chosen by the convoy to receive the donations turn around and give them back to the convoy.

Open a charge back against your credit card company if you donated. They charge $ to GFM to resolve. This is one way to hit them in their wallet. Call them.

Thick-headed libtards like GFM need to feel the pain before they will let go of their woke convictions. Sue them, don't use them again. This publicity was UNEXPECTED. They are like giving to United Way and having your donations go to liberal causes like "save the tree frog" and finding out that their CEO makes $800 grand for the task of counting your money. I dropped them 20 years ago.

Anyone believe leftists are not intrinsically totalitarians? It is who they are. They have a Luciferian compulsion to control everything and everyone and it is more on display around the globe than it has ever been. It is permeating the West and if we give in, we are done. God bless the Truckers and all their supporters. If we don’t take a stand now, it is just going to get progressively harder to resist their tyranny. Full support of these brave freedom fighters is essential because if we lose protesting peacefully, God help us, the next step is unthinkable. Channel your inner Braveheart…Freedom!

Let me get this straight. You donate money to a cause you support thru GoFundMe. GFM then decides whether to give your money to that cause or to another they consider more worthy. (Or do it go for "overhead"?) Why would I EVER donate thru GoFundMe?

Years ago I donated to help Haiti, but I later found out it went to somebody's 'foundation' or something. Try to give directly, not some middle-man. Of course, giving to the truckers is problematic. Hate to be the skunk at the picnic, but doesn't Go Fund Me have an agreement that it can do what it wants to with the cash? By donating you are implicitly agreeing to their terms.

The police chief responsible for Ottowa has stated that the truckers and their supporters have caused no violence whatsoever. I also read a report this AM that crime has dropped in Ottawa during the time the protesters were there compared to what the stats were the week before.

The move reverses the Trump administration's decision to rescind them. The resumption of the waiver, ended by Trump in 2020, 'would be essential to ensuring Iran's swift compliance' if a new deal on controlling Tehran's nuclear program can be reached in talks in Vienna, the State Department official said

Karl Rove is, once again, beating the war drums. He is ready to send 18-year-olds like my son to fight nuclear Russia over Ukraine’s border so that he and the other neocons can talk like tough guys on TV.

He goes on to tell employees the reason for this special effort for blacks.
