Tim “Baked Alaska” Gionet is gearing up to speak at the white power “Unite the Right” rally on August 12th. In the meantime the failed rapper — whose “hits” have included “Bull Moose Trappin'” and “We Love Our Cops” — is begging his fans for donations to fly him from Los Angeles to Charlottesville.
And yesterday Gionet had a GoFundMe campaign to accomplish that goal, at least until the crowdfunding platform’s administrators caught wind of it, that is.
In a tweet posted at 10:40 am PT, Gionet announced that GoFundMe “has removed my fundraiser from their site and permanently banned me with no reason given.” He admonished his followers against supporting “this left wing garbage site”:
Fellow white nationalist Tara McCarthy complained that alt-lite figure Brittany Pettibone was also banned from GoFundMe. Gionet called it “insane” and whined that he “literally did nothing wrong”:
Gionet continued to cry about GoFundMe over the span of several hours, accusing the site of anti-Trump bias and discrimination:
Of course GoFundMe never banned Gionet because he’s some ordinary Trump supporter or conservative. GoFundMe obviously didn’t want their platform being used to fly Gionet — a man who’s one mullet hair away from Neo-Nazism — to a white supremacist gathering in Virginia. As if to prove this point, Gionet’s racist fans immediately mobilized:
And several aimed their racist, anti-Semitic vitriol at GoFundMe CEO Rob Solomon. Cue repeated use of the triple parentheses and the word “cuck”:
Unfortunately for Mr. Gionet — and in spite of all the bile he and his followers have directed at Mr. Solomon and his company — he’s going to have to find a more hospitable platform to beg for money.
