Get off the Cross, cont.
The founders of GoFundME must be so proud of the attention that their site is getting lately.
Besides bigot pizzas grifters, and possibly sabotaged car grifters, you can now fund white supremacists grifters!
Here’s the short version: some white guy put a hand-made White History Month poster in the window of his deli (and we must ask ourselves if there is a single month that is NOT white history month in the USA, but I digress). His bidness dried up, not surprisingly.
So he has started his own GoFundMe campaign, amusingly called Jimbos white history sign gone bad.
“On march 1st I hung a sign in my deli window saying, ‘Celebrate your white heritage in March, White History Month.’
“If you haven’t heard of this story and you want to read about it, just google Flemington white history or go on YouTube and search White History Month. Anyway, it went crazy for four days and then I had to take the sign down for various reasons. It was only supposed to be a white thing, but people read more into it than that.”
I bet they did, Sparky.
“I did get tons of supporting letters from all across the USA.”
I’m guessing from the Confederacy. What are the odds?
“Which was very comforting during such a stressful time.”
A stressful time of your own making, but do continue.
“Then the bottom dropped out and customers were no longer coming into my deli, and now I am forced to close down my Deli and lose my American dream.”
Because of your own actions. What lesson the class learn from this tale?
“I don’t think I deserve this just because I wanted to be proud of being white and be able to celebrate my heritage like everyone else does.”
But you do deserve it, Whitey. What message do you think you were sending, and more importantly who did you think it was going to attract?
This is called the Invisible Hand of the Marketplace. He’s raised $215 from 15 people in 4 days, which is far more than I would have thought.
You made your bed, now you get to sleep in it, apparently without delicious deli meats.
