Crowdfunding Closed To Alt-Right

Apparently, the last alt-right crowdfunding site has gone dormant according to Hornet.

Started by a Perdue University student, Maker Support has stopped taking pledges.

That follows the hibernation of Hatreon, a site that mimicked Patreon.

Apparently, the reason for their inactivity is that the payment processors (eg, Stripe) have decided to review and “put on hold” these site transactions.

After having been kicked off of mainstream crowdfunding platforms, these groups are finding funding harder to obtain.
