Conservatives from all over the United States are gathering financial support for Kyle Rittenhouse's legal defense following his charge of first degree murder by prosecutors in Wisconsin over the deaths of two of his assailants. Antifa supporters want to put a stop to that.
Antifa got wind of the fact that there was a page set up to gather funds for Rittenhouse, which used Shopify to process payments. They are now pressuring Shopify to shut down the fundraising website.
GoFundMe and Fundly have already removed multiple campaigns for Rittenhouse, bowing to pressure from far-left radicals. The two websites stated that the campaigns violated their terms of service, as Rittenhouse, is guilty of a hate crime according to them.
Rittenhouse has yet to face trial in a court of law.
The two websites have taken sides in the matter and have allowed the friends and families of the two men slain in the shooting to raise funds. GoFundMe directly promoted the fundraiser for Anthony Huber on Twitter.
Despite efforts to impede Rittenhouse's supports from raising funds for the teenager, many other options have sprung up. In addition, many prominent conservatives such as Ann Coulter and Tucker Carlson have come to Rittenhouse’s aid. Michelle Malkin has also started her own fundraiser for the cause.
Kyle Rittenhouse is the 17 year old gunman who killed two protestors and wounded a third in Kenosha, Wisconsin last week. His legal team claims that the shootings were in self defence.
