Twitter Refuses to Verify Triple-Amputee ‘Build the Wall’ GoFundMe Founder, Enables Fraud

Published

on

By refusing to provide verified status for the Colorado triple-amputee veteran behind the ‘Build the Wall’ GoFundMe, Twitter founder Jack Dorsey appears to be sanctioning fraudulent fundraising efforts by allowing fraudsters to impersonate him.

Brian Kolfage, creator of the viral GoFundMe that’s raised almost $20 million to date, tweeted about having a request for verification on Twitter denied.

According to Kolfage, scammers are impersonating him, using his name to trick American patriots into thinking they’re donating to a genuine effort to fund a border wall. If Twitter provided verified status for Kolfage’s actual account, individuals seeking to donate to the genuine GoFundMe could find it easier to locate him online.

The GoFundMe maintains that all funds will be held for use exclusively on the construction of a wall on the southern border. It wouldn’t be the first time private donations were used to facilitate a federal project; the Washington Monument was repaired with private funds in 2012.

Republican Congressman Mark Meadows also tweeted about the need for Jack Dorsey to verify Kolfage to safeguard Twitter users from fraud on Tuesday:

If you’re going to provide verification for anyone on Twitter, it makes sense that it would be used to for a prominent fundraiser, to ensure that donations aren’t siphoned away by less than savory characters. However, it’s become increasingly clear that Twitter’s blue check is all-but-reserved for a pre-approved set of establishment progressive and centrist friendly journalists and self-appointed public figures.

It remains to be seen if the almost $20 million raised by Kolfage will be used to help build a wall, and most would prefer the United States government would fund the protection of its own borders instead of delegating its duties by passing the buck to private citizens. With that said, it is very much possible in theory for Kolfage’s raised money to be spent on building the wall.

It has long been the law that private citizens can donate to the government. In 2012, a billionaire donated $7.5 million to help rebuild the Washington monument after the August 2012 Virginia Earthquake. Most of the legal authority focuses on when a taxpayer can deduct a donation to the U.S. Treasury from his or her income taxes.

Facebook Mass Censoring Any MENTION of the Word ‘Coronavirus’

Pathetic level of censorship.

Published

Mark Zuckerberg Matrix

Facebook appears to enacting a totally new level of Orwellian censorship, going so far as to mass delete any comment or post with a mere mention of the word ‘coronavirus.’ Some online conservatives brought up the remarkable and reactionary censorship on Monday, expressing surprise that the company would go so far as to silence any mere mention of the disease’s name.

Other Facebook users recounted the exact same experience. It’s unclear if the automated ban on saying ‘coronavirus’ applies throughout the entire platform, or is merely blanketed upon a subsection of users.

The author had a similar experience when posting a comment that merely said the word ‘coronavirus.’

Curiously, the comments merely stating ‘coronavirus’ don’t appear to have been outright deleted from the platform. Instead, they’re rendered invisible to anyone but the individual that posted them, ensuring that Facebook can claim they aren’t deleted, but just as effectively silenced.

The coronavirus epidemic is one of the most significant global events since World War II. But don’t you dare as so much even think as to mention it on Facebook.

For the world’s largest social media network to so callously silence anyone who even dares to mention the name of the disease is reminiscent of some of the most authoritarian censorship practices in history, such as those practiced in the Soviet Union.

It’s hard to think of a practice that could so effectively reveal malfeasance and authoritarianism on the part of Silicon Valley tech elites, but they don’t care. So much as an actual discussion on coronavirus isn’t permitted for the unwashed masses, and is reserved as a privilege for the liberal elites.
