PayPal Dumps GiveSendGo, the 'Christian' Crowdfunding Site Used By Proud Boys - 2021-01-11
This morning PayPal confirmed to Gizmodo that it has cut ties with GiveSendGo, the Christian crowdfunding platform which hosts fundraisers for, among other causes, Kenosha shooter Kyle Rittenhouse and Proud Boys leader Enrique Tarrio.
Since a Trumpist mob descended on D.C. last week with pipe bombs, zip ties, and feces, ultimately storming the Capitol Building in a siege that left five dead, there have been renewed calls for payment processors to stop working with sites sympathetic to these insurrectionists. Among them: GiveSendGo, which became a viable second-tier fundraising option for causes which GoFundMe and others refused to be associated with.
As a result of the Capitol riot, PayPal has decided to sever ties with GiveSendGo, leaving an uncertain financial future for pro-Trump conspiracies, anti-mask efforts, and other "Christian" fundraising causes.
