Deane’s letter to GoFundMe:
It has come to my attention that you have arbitrarily canceled the account of Anni Cyrus, producer of the valuable news source, The Glazov Gang. This appears to be a politically-driven action and I find it anathema to the entire concept of GoFundMe. We live in a free society where opinions may be expressed across a wide spectrum of issues and ideas. Deleting an account, without even the benefit of notice or allowing the retrieval of donor information, is stepping on the freedom guaranteed by the First Amendment.
There are other avenues through which The Glazov Gang can raise money, and I will continue to support them through other methods. But this has far-reaching consequences for GoFundMe. I will carefully consider whether or not to donate to other organizations and individuals who use your tools. I do not want GoFundMe to benefit in any way from my donations.
If and when you issue an explanation and apology, and reinstate Anni Cyrus’ account, I will reconsider using GoFundMe.
