New Crowdfunding Portals For Hate Groups Sprouting

The good/bad thing about capitalism is that it hates a void.

And since hate speech has recently been shuttered by legitimate crowdfunding sites, it is only reasonable to assume that someone would set up a crowdfunding portal for those who traffic in white supremacy, discrimination and alternative information.

One new portal whose real monicker is “Hatreon” is now sponsoring the alt-right likes of Richard Spencer who has 33 supporters paying him $375 a month to continue his crusade.

And, of course, where there is money to be made, copycats have jumped into the fray and are now fighting for the attention of other folks on the Southern Poverty Law Centers Top 100 hate group list.
