GoFundMe falsely accuses Robert Spencer of violating Terms of Service, allows no appeal

GoFundme is also corrupted by the fascists, Nazi-Left ..

By Robert Spencer, Jihad Watch

This morning, GoFundMe first notified me that they were sending me the remaining $600 of the $3300 in donations I had received; they had canceled the rest and refunded the donors. Then they canceled that payout and sent me this:

It seems you’re using WePay for one or more of the activities prohibited by our Terms of Service. Unfortunately, you can’t use WePay to accept additional payments. Any pending payments will be canceled and you won’t be able to withdraw funds at this time.

More specifically:

WePay is unable to process payments related to Hate, violence, racial intolerance, terrorism, the financial exploitation of a crime, or items or activities that encourage, promote, facilitate, or instruct others regarding the same.

Thank you for understanding and we apologize that we couldn’t offer a better solution.

Sincerely,
WePay Team

There was, of course, no further explanation.

It’s very clear what’s going on. The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) claims that I am a “hate group leader,” and that’s that. The SPLC’s infallibility in such matters is taken for granted by all these social media giants, despite its massive admission of error in the Maajid Nawaz case, and its obvious far-Left political agenda in lumping legitimate groups in with the likes of the KKK and neo-Nazis in order to discredit and destroy them.

But GoFundMe, like Patreon and MasterCard, allow no appeal, no discussion, no questioning of the SPLC’s fiat. And of course, it isn’t just the SPLC; it is now taken for granted by large segments of the American population, and by innumerable people elsewhere, that to oppose jihad mass murder of innocent civilians and Sharia oppression of women, gays, and others is “hate,” or as GoFundMe puts it, “Hate” with a capital H. I remember how flabbergasted I was in 2003 when I was on MSNBC with Keith Olbermann and Ibrahim Hooper of Hamas-linked CAIR, and Hooper called me a “hatemonger.” I thought, “It’s ‘hate’ to oppose jihad terror? That will never fly.”

But it has. And the outcome will be that more and more people will be afraid to oppose jihad terror and Sharia oppression, for fear of incurring these charges, and this discrimination and libel.

I’m going to be doing what I can to challenge GoFundMe’s uncritical acceptance of the SPLC’s smear of me, and the likely same uncritical acceptance by MasterCard/Patreon. But the SPLC has hundreds of millions of dollars and I don’t. And many who don’t realize how vulnerable they are will applaud what is happening to me because they don’t realize or believe how easily the same tactics can and will be turned on them. But they will be.

I did ask GoFundMe why they had done this, and I got this back:

@GFMThis account has been refunded and blacklisted with the following message: WePay is unable to process payments related to Hate, violence, racial intolerance, terrorism, the financial exploitation of a crime, or items or activities that encourage, promote, facilitate, or instruct others regarding the same.

So I wrote this back to Vanessa:

But I don’t do any of those things. On what grounds are you accusing me of this? I don’t spread hate or encourage violence or intolerance or terrorism, etc. I don’t do any of these things. On what basis are you claiming that I do?

I don’t expect an answer to that.
