When the Public stands up to the Mob

Parkside

This is what happens when the mob decides to go to extreme measures to put someone they claim their cause protects out of business. It backfires abysmally.

You may recall we published a video of black conservative Candace Owens – which reached 100 million views – who said that the media shouldn’t be using George Floyd as a martyr figure given his long history of crime. For context, note she DID say his death was inexcusable.

Owens wrote,

This is the Parkside Café, a restaurant and bar in Birmingham, Alabama that is operated by a man named Michael Dykes. This week, Michael Dykes watched my video which garnered 100 million views in 42 hours, about the irresponsibility of the George Floyd protests and riots. Michael agreed with me and in frustration, wrote a private text to one of his colleagues about how destructive the protests were and how they are placing further burden on small business owners who are struggling to stay alive after the Coronavirus lockdowns— and now cannot open because of the riots. Michael also agreed with my sentiment that George Floyd did not deserve to die, but also, that he had a criminal record that was not worthy of the heroic characterizations the media is spinning today.

An employee of his decided to leak these private text messages, quit her job, and has now encouraged a mob of people to boycott the Parkside cafe. Local media is adding further fuel to the condemnation aby demanding he answer for his private text message exchange.

I AM SICK OF THE MOB RUINING PEOPLE’S LIVES.

PEOPLE ARE ALLOWED TO HAVE DIFFERENT OPINIONS.

The left specializes in mobs of hate and destruction. Let’s create a reciprocal movement of patriot love and support the Parkside cafe.

The Go Fund Me link is here. It has raised almost double the initial amount requested.

Follow the money to get a grasp on where the sentiment is going. 

Just like this chap.

And this lady.

And this woman.

And these people.

And these people.

Thank God that Joe Biden followed up Hillary Clinton’s “basket of deplorables” comment and Obama’s “clingers” jibe about Republicans with “10-15%” of Americans “are just not good people.” We wonder if his son Hunter is included in the 50 million-odd dregs of society…?

UPDATE

We note that Go Fund Me has since told Owens that the cause has “violated terms of service” on the grounds or “hate, violence, harassment, bullying, discrimination, terrorism or intolerance of any kind.

Sounds like a Sleeping Giants style campaign to harass Go Fund Me.

Yet another tech company beholden to the left.

It wasn’t that long ago that GoFundMe happily allowed people to raise funds to pay for ladders assisting illegal immigrants to thwart national border protection laws. So when it comes to breaking federal US laws, then raising funds is OK under its guidelines? One presumes that GoFundMe enforces its own arbitrary set of rules against its own pet causes.

Don’t forget that GoFundMe happily allowed $80,000 to be raised for Egg Boi who attacked Fraser Anning. Once again, regardless of Anning’s views, funds were raised for the legal defence of a teenager who committed violence, harassed, expressed hate and showed intolerance of another’s view, no matter how abhorrent the former Senator’s words might have been. Doesn’t that violate the same terms and conditions?
