When Angy Ngo, Editor-at-large at Post Millennial gave evidence to US Congress about Antifa on August 5, he shone a light on just how dark the movement is.  

Beginning his testimony, he said, “I have worked undercover for months and I’ve seen with my own eyes how hundreds of so-called protesters work together to carry out acts of organized criminality against government and civilians.” 

He continued, “Antifa has masted the art of making its violence appear innocuous. For example, projectiles that look like water balloons can be filled with chemicals, small sling-shots can be used to project rocks, glass and ball bearings into police lines, umbrella tips can be fastened with discreet pocket knives, powerful handheld lasers can cause serious damage to the eyes… 

“They have access to a rich stream of cash flowing from platforms like GoFundMe…” 

Interestingly, the Mad F***ing Witches, who are causing trouble closer to home also turned to GoFundMe on March 20.  

They started a GoFundMe specifically to raise money for health workers treating COVID-19 patients. They stated that they would help health workers and their families and also remote communities. The goal was set at $10,000. 

By June 3, they had raised $5,345.  

They faced considerable criticism on social media about lack of updates, so, they updated the GoFundMe page to say as the COVID-19 crisis hadn’t been as bad as predicted, they wouldn’t be donating money for meals after all.  

So, they set up a fundraiser with an emotive and highly topical goal.  

Halfway through their goal, they changed that purpose to enable them to keep the money for themselves; supposedly, a whistleblower says, to develop their website and pay their “volunteers” to continue their “work”

Many people who have attempted to ask questions about the funds raised have been blocked.  

Behind the scenes, this group is paying volunteers to do their “work” of harassing advertisers into not giving their business to mainstream media. 

This is not a grassroots SJW  group.  

It does not reflect the views of mainstream Australians.  

They appear to be generating income, through platforms including GoFundMe, to pay people to send emails and make relentless calls to companies.  

Isn’t this all somewhat dishonest? 

Isn’t this funded activism? 

Isn’t this bullying in an ideological war? 

Perhaps next time any of us click into a fundraising page we should stop and consider what we’re actually donating to? 

What are we funding? 

Who is behind it?  

And the sinister findings of Andy Ngo should be front of mind.  

Corrine Barraclough has a new weekly online show hosted on Good Sauce which will focus on family law, its impact on mental health, and the damage of the gender-bias in mainstream media.
