The public face of Trump’s Stop the Steal rallies is using a Christian crowdfunding website to try and raise $40,000 for his personal expenses in the wake of the insurrection that the President incited with the crowd he organized with three Republican congressmen.
Now, Stop the Steal “official organizer” Ali Alexander has gone into hiding after his repeated rhetorical calls for Trump supporters to “1776” the defeated President’s enemies came to fruition in the worst way.
Apparently, it is costly to hide after one has given aid and comfort to an insurrection mob, so Alexander, the name-changing convicted felon also known as “Ali Akhbar,” is using GiveSendGo.com which bills itself as the “#1 Free Christian Crowdfunding Site” to keep raising money with a goal of $40,000.
Ali Alexander and his patriotic, Christian work is being deplatformed by dark corporate forces and political opponents.
Please help Ali bring light to the world by finding a security and administrative team to be with him 24/7.
Please help and let other patriots and believers know where to assist!
Ali Alexander is the leader of the Stop the Steal movement, which has hosted 1000+ peaceful protests over the past 10 weeks.
“The funds from this campaign will be received by Ali Akbar,” reads the disclaimer at the top.
Ali Alexander has spent the last two months propagandizing his once vast MAGA following.
As his fundraiser says, he has recently been suspended on pretty much every social media platform for using his lies as the “official organizer” of the Jan. 6th “Save America” rally where he set the stage for Donald Trump’s call to violence. Twitter erased his following of over 200,000 people on Sunday night, and Facebook banned him today.
GiveSendGo’s terms of service say that users will not “use your GiveSendGo account for any illegal purposes” and that users “may not use the GiveSendGo service for activities that violate any law, statute, ordinance or regulation related to… (d) items that promote hate, violence, racial intolerance.”
The owners of GiveSendGo did not respond to requests for comment by email and their website form in time for publication in this story, including when asked if they plan to continue hosting Alexander Ali’s crowdfunding campaign.
