Candace Owens Raises Staggering Amount of Money for Small Business Owner…Then GoFundMe Does Something HORRIBLE

GoFundMe suspended a fundraiser that Candace Owens created to help a small business in Alabama on Saturday.

The conservative activist had helped raise over $200,000 for Parkside Café in Birmingham, but the fundraising was cut short after she and the bar co-owner made controversial comments about George Floyd and protesters.

Floyd Comments Bring Controversy 

The co-owner, Michael Dykes, had previously called Floyd a “thug” and referred to some protesters as “idiots” in a text message that was later posted online, AL.com reported.

Owens posted on Facebook, explaining that she was assisting the “already-struggling business” after Dyke’s comments brought on a boycott.

According to AL.com, Dyke sent the texts to other employees, which one of them then posted it on Facebook.

“After raising $205,000 in a few hours, @gofundme decided to halt my campaign for the Parkside Cafe in Alabama. At their discretion, they deemed that funds raised for a conservative business constitute “intolerance” They WILL, however, give the funds raised thus far to the cafe…” Owens posted on Twitter.

Owens also tweeted a screenshot showing GoFundMe stopped her campaign due to a violation of their terms of service. It deemed the user content as “in support of hate, violence, harassment, bullying, discrimination, terrorism or intolerance of any kind.”

Owens Reports Facts

Owens has been at the forefront of confronting disturbing details of Floyd’sFloyd’s past, including his long list of violent behaviors.

She has spotlighted his nine prison terms and has discussed the fact that his autopsy showed he had meth and fentanyl in his system.

Her controversial remarks, while completely accurate, seems to be why GoFundMe banned Owens.

The fundraising platform released a statement claiming Owens has advanced “falsehoods against the black community.”

Keep in mind, Owens is black and none of her comments have appeared to have been unfactual.

GoFundMe’s History of Conservative Banning

“GoFundMe has suspended the account associated with Candace Owens and the GoFundMe campaign has been removed because of a repeated pattern of inflammatory statements that spread hate, discrimination, intolerance and falsehoods against the black community at a time of profound national crisis,” GoFundMe stated.

Owens is a conservative who fights hard to report on the truth. She is also black and refuses to let her skin color dictate her decision making. You can imagine how angry this makes the left.

The Parkside Café has issued a statement apologizing for Dyke’sDyke’s comments.

So what happens to the money Owen’sOwen’s raised? According to GoFundMe, they will transfer the funds to the café.

Censorship of conservatives has only gained speed. In 2018, GoFundMe banned conservative journalist, Laura Loomer, from the platform.

Banning people for their political stances is a very slippery slope and one the GoFundMe has dared to embrace.

    • Owens should sue. Ever since the trial of Peter Zenger, the truth has always been a solid legal defense against accusations of “slander” — or, in this case, refusal of service.

    • Well we know Democrats hate Truth and Facts google Floyd,s history and see if he was upstanding Person that is not what people called a Thug and those people out there being Peaceful Whaaaaaat

  1. George Floyd WAS a THUG ! He did not deserve to die the way that he did, but he WAS, and had been a CRIMINAL. The way that he is depicted by BLM, and the Democrat Party , you would almost think that he was a SAINT ! I think that it was EXTREMELY unfair of the Go fund me to stop the donations, because it was CONSERVATIVE, after Candace Owens ,worked SO hard for them ! What major Companies MUST REALIZE, is that NOT every customer is a LIBERAL ! There are plenty of conservatives out there, who spend MORE money then the liberals, and the Companies only hurt THEMSELVES, by DISRESPECTING them !

  2. Similar thing happened in Australasia when an Australian rugby player got sacked for espousing his Christian faith. He set up a “go fund me” account to pay for his legal bills. When “go fundme” canceled his account a Christian fund raising site stepped in. When he raised more than enough for his legal bills the Australian Rugby Union came back to the table. Funny That!

  3. The ‘knee on the neck’ actually is used often.. to keep the policeman’s hands free in the struggle. This 9 time convicted criminal wasn’t killed by police officers where he was caught passing counterfeit money, he was killed by a Fentanyl and Meth induced heart attack… in the ambulance when he AGAIN started fighting,, the Emergency responders INSIDE the ambulance where he wasn’t cuffed to the gurney,… as he was trying to ESCAPE again… that was where he died.. of a heart attack… on drugs.. desperate to not be imprisoned for the tenth time.. and if what I suspect is true.. likely was under parole status.. perhaps from one of his last escapades, robbery with a firearm.
    All lies all the time all the media…. BLM and Eric Holder are coordinating the fake messaging in this mess.

  4. Let them keep pushing, de-fund the police burn the cities down, keep making these demands on the rest of us, go ahead throw the country into complete anarchy, For every action their is a reaction. what goes around, comes around, Throw the country into a 2nd American Revolution. I dare you. because if they do, the liberal commie Democrats, don’t condemn all the violence, in fact they support and condone it, they want to make a Martyr out of Floyd, that’t their narrative, they don’t comment on the police officers, that were shot, the ones that have died, run over and have been assaulted, the more the merrier for the Democrats. What happened to Floyd shouldn’t have happened. Floyd wasn’t exactly an outstanding citizen. He served four years for armed robbery. Floyd could have been dead 4 years ago if the person he robbed had a Gun, and then nothing would have been said. looking at his funeral you would think the POTUS had died. The anarchists hijacking the supposedly peaceful protest better be careful for what they wish for. The liberal commie Democrats and the CEO’S of these social media sites, like go fund me are going to have to find another country to escape to.

  5. This whole thing is disgusting with these liberals. If they keep on, there will, G-d Forbid, no America. I fear for my grandchildren, and yours. Thank you to Candace Owens, I hope that many other people have the good sense to follow you.

  6. Thanks for informing the public about Go Fund Me practices.NOBODY should use that website again.Too political and in the Democrats/Communists basket of EVIL

  7. Since when has it been bad to tell the truth, everyone agrees that what happened to George Floyd shouldn’t have happened but to have this funeral and all these people saying how wonderful he was no mention was made of his criminal past, not just one mistake but many. Candace Owens is amazing, and just tells the truth.

  8. Candace Owens has the courage and intellect to speak the truth about this whole matter. I encourage readers to view some of her previous comments relating to the Floyd murder and how the left is using it along with the BLM movement to further their own agenda. Me. Owens is an extremely intelligent and articulate lady, who happens to be black, who sees all of this for what it is. Of course, her views threaten the lefts narrative so they feel compelled to silence her and stifle her efforts.

  9. WHERE HAS OUR REAL UNION OF THE REPUBLIC GONE???? NOTHING MORE HERE NOW BUT PUSSIFIED WEAK HEADS OF BUSINESS AND GOVT’S FALLING FOR THIS N W ORDER CRAP AND CAVING INTO ALL THESE ” AMERICAN TALIBAN RATS ” LIKE IN SEATTLE AND ELSE WHERE! OUR MAIN MEDIA HEADS ALL CRAPPING IN THERE DEPENDS FOR THESE CRIMINALS AND DESTROYING FREE SPEECH AND ATTEMPTING TO DESTROY THE CONSTITUTION AND BILL OF RIGHTS AS WELL! WHERE ARE ALL THE REAL PATRIOTIC AMERICANS TODAY TO RISE UP AND KICK THIS ” NEW TALIBAN BASTARD ORGANIZATION ” CLEAN OUT OF THIS COUNTRY! THIS CRAP ALONG WITH THE CHINESE VIRUS’S AND ALL THIS RETURNING TO THE ” RACE ” WORD MORE THAN EVER SUCKS AND ALL THE RIOTING OVER OUR POLICE FOLKS IS NOTHING BUT A FOUL MARXIST PROGRESSIVE ACT TO FURTHER DEMINISH OUR WAY OF LIFE AND FREEDOMS! WAKE UP AMERICA OF THE PAST AND LETS PUT A STOP TO THESE ANARCHIST IDIOTS!
