Ted Cruz hit Big Tech with some bad news about the Freedom Convoy

The Freedom Convoy is the biggest protest against COVID fascism in North America.

Leftists are panicking.

And Ted Cruz hit Big Tech with some bad news about the Freedom Convoy.

The crowdfunding platform GoFundMe became the latest Silicon Valley giant to censor conservative political views.

GoFundMe announced it took down a page for the Freedom Convoy in Canada after the Mayor of Ottawa made baseless claims about the protestors committing acts of violence.

In their statement, GoFundMe revealed the remaining $9 million the Freedom Convoy raised would be distributed to charities that met the company’s left-wing standards.

Conservatives immediately slammed GoFundMe for allowing Black Lives Matter terrorists to use their platform to raise money even though the organization staged nearly 600 riots in the summer of 2020 that caused $2 billion in property damage and killed dozens of Americans.

There was a clear double standard at work and conservatives threatened investigations at the federal and state level into GoFundMe for defrauding donors who contributed money to the Freedom Convoy but would now see their money directed to left-wing groups.

Texas Senator Ted Cruz told Fox News host Maria Bartiromo that the Federal Trade Commission should open a deceptive practices investigation into GoFundMe.

“It is theft on the part of GoFundMe. The Canadian truckers are heroes, patriots, and they are marching for your freedom and for my freedom. Those truck drivers, God bless them, that are defending Canada, are defending America as well. That is courage on display. […] Today I sent a letter to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) asking that the FTC open an investigation into GoFundMe into whether they’ve committed deceptive trade practices. Because when people gave money, they gave money under the promise it would go to the Freedom Convoy, not to whatever left-wing political ideology GoFundMe and other Silicon Valley companies support,” Cruz stated.

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis announced that he would direct his state’s Attorney General to investigate GoFundMe for defrauding donors.

Four other states joined Florida in this investigation.

With the threat of multiple investigations looming over their heads, GoFundMe reversed course and announced that it would simply refund the money to donors.

But that does not solve the core problem.

Conservatives still must exist in an environment where Big Tech companies that are run by leftists and have left-wing work forces can silence them at any time.
