.@AskPayPal has blocked @GiveSendGo after the site allowed hate groups to raise money for violence in DC on 11/14 and 12/12, culminating in the riot witnessed by the world on 1/6.

@stripe has blocked specific fundraisers, but refuses to ban the site. reuters.com/article/us-usa…
Despite @stripe announcing last week that they had banned the Proud Boys, @GiveSendGo is still rife with Proud Boy fundraisers using @stripe to process the payments.

This was live this morning, funding 13 Proud Boys to travel from the west coast to DC: archive.is/wip/BIiBg
Live on @GiveSendGo now: "We are motivated patriots ready to fight for our Constitution and the liberties they are trying to take away. Your donation will Assist 13 Proud Boys from the West Coast with travel and other related expenses."

Really, @stripe?
.@stripe, unless you ban @GiveSendGo entirely, your service will continue to be used to raise funds for violent hate groups like the Proud Boys, like it is right now.
You can just go through @GiveSendGo's site and find multiple live fundraisers for Proud Boys, @stripe.

This one is for Nick Ochs, of the Hawaii Proud Boys. He entered the Capitol Building during Wednesday's attempted coup. He's raised $19,230.

Gavin McInnes claims he wasn’t in DC yesterday, but if not, there’s a dead ringer for him that walked up to Ethan “Rufio Panman” Nordean, gave what appears to be an order, and then the Proud Boys marched on the Capitol.
Gavin denying that a guy who looks exactly like Gavin is Gavin. 😂
Did Gavin send a lookalike? If so, why is the lookalike giving orders to a Proud Boy Elder? 😂

1/ Yesterday's attempted coup was driven by far-right media personalities like Nick Fuentes, the Holocaust-denying leader of the Groyper movement.

On @OfficialDLive, he earns a six-figure salary, and receives those payments via @amazonpay and @skrill.
2/ Fuentes' American First followers were among the most enthusiastic who stormed the Capitol Building, and they were egged on by their leader, who livestreamed encouragement throughout the day.
3/ Fuentes himself was on the scene, but I don't have any evidence that he actually entered the Capitol Building himself.

1/ Angry about the attempted coup in DC yesterday?

@GiveSendGo is the site that makes hate profitable.

As of now, they're carrying Proud Boys fundraisers that have raised nearly $300,000.

And @Stripe and @WePay are processing their payments. rollingstone.com/culture/cultur…
2/ @GiveSendGo is filled with fund raisers for violent hate groups like the Proud Boys, despite claiming to be a Christian crowdfunding site.

And @Stripe and @WePay, despite prohibiting violent hate groups in their Terms of Service.

Tell @Stripe and @WePay to honor their TOS.
3/ How can you contact them to help fight fascism today?

For @Stripe, email info@stripe.com and media@stripe.com, or use the following online forms.

1/ @GiveSendGo is a Christian crowdfunding platform that's allowing violent hate groups to raise money.

They use @stripe, @WePay, and @PayPal to process their payments, violating their Terms of Service.

As the Proud Boys prepare to attack DC, they're getting rich on GiveSendGo. ImageImageImageImage
2/ This means that @GiveSendGo is violating the Terms of Service of all three companies-- @stripe, @WePay, and @PayPal.

To those payment processors-- why are you letting @GiveSendGo violate your Terms of Service by allowing violent hate groups to raise money? ImageImageImage
3/ And it's not just the fundraiser for Enrique Tarrio, leader of the Proud Boys, a violent hate group. splcenter.org/fighting-hate/…

1/ Super Happy Fun America's Sue Ianni has a Crystal Transport bus taking the Straight Pride group to Washington, DC, for 1/6/21, where they attacked protesters in July 2019.

Call Crystal Transport at 617-787-1544 and ask them not to support hate.
2/ Super Happy Fun America has a long history of violence.

Last time they traveled to DC, one of their members, Brandon Sullivan, threatened Black Lives Matter activists and attacked an antifascist who tried to deescalate.
3/ In July 2019, Brandon traveled to DC with Super Happy Fun America organizer Samson Racioppi, and SHFA and Patriot Saints associate Danny Gilbertson.
