Republicans have finally had enough.
The party recognizes there is a problem and began to fight back.
And Ted Cruz just issued one ultimatum that will change everything.
The Freedom Convoy is on the biggest uprising against COVID fascism.
Truckers began protesting Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s tyrannical vaccine mandate to enter the country.
The protest spread and now truckers took up space outside the Canadian parliament in a jaw-dropping statement in favor of freedom and liberty.
A GoFundMe page raised nearly ten million dollars for the protest against COVID authoritarianism.
But the Canadian government continues its descent into autocracy.
Police in Ottawa stole the truckers’ fuel in order to end their ability to keep their cars heated and running in the dead of winter in an effort to end the protest by threatening to freeze the truckers to death.
Police in Ottawa then conjured up some baseless claims about violence and racism to pressure GoFundMe to take down the Freedom Convoy’s page.
GoFundMe then issued a statement where they announced they would shut down the Freedom Convoy page and essentially steal their money and donate it to approved charities – most likely Black Lives Matter.
To ensure GoFundMe remains a trusted platform, we work with local authorities to ensure we have a detailed, factual understanding of events taking place on the ground. Following a review of relevant facts and multiple discussions with local law enforcement and city officials, this fundraiser is now in violation of our Terms of Service (Term 8, which prohibits the promotion of violence and harassment) and has been removed from the platform.
Organizers provided a clear distribution plan for the initial $1M that was released earlier this week and confirmed funds would be used only for participants who traveled to Ottawa to participate in a peaceful protest. Given how this situation has evolved, no further funds will be directly distributed to the Freedom Convoy organizers — we will work with organizers to send all remaining funds to credible and established charities chosen by the Freedom Convoy 2022 organizers and verified by GoFundMe.
Texas Senator Ted Cruz blasted GoFundMe’s decision as “theft” and demanded the Federal Trade Commission launch a deceptive practices investigation into GoFundMe.
“It is theft on the part of GoFundMe. The Canadian truckers are heroes, patriots, and they are marching for your freedom and for my freedom. Those truck drivers, God bless them, that are defending Canada, are defending America as well. That is courage on display. […] Today I sent a letter to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) asking that the FTC open an investigation into GoFundMe into whether they’ve committed deceptive trade practices. Because when people gave money, they gave money under the promise it would go to the Freedom Convoy, not to whatever left-wing political ideology GoFundMe and other Silicon Valley companies support,” Cruz said in an interview on Fox News.
Conservatives are tired of Big Tech’s politically motivated censorship.
Five state attorneys general quickly announced plans to investigate GoFundMe.
GoFundMe reversed course and announced it would just refund all the money to the donors.
But Cruz’s threat to investigate GoFundMe signals that the next time the GOP wins back power the party will use their majorities to take a more aggressive posture towards Big Tech.
