While the reason for the removal has not be established, GoFundMe has reportedly removed the fundraiser for Philip Anderson’s dental surgery.
The GoFundMe organized by Adam Crigler was removed and all funds were sent back to those who donated.
On Saturday Philip Anderson was attempting to host a rally against Big Tech censorship in San Fransisco California. The group behind the rally is known as Team Save America, and was created by Anderson to fight big tech censorship.
According to a live interview conducted with Anderson over Periscope, Anderson did not anticipate the level of violence Antifa was willing to commit against him. Anderson had many encounters with BLM and Antifa burning down their own communities while he traveled around the US to different places being affected by riots as an independent investigative reporter, but none had lead to blows.
However, this wasn’t the first time an assault has been attempted on Phillip. Another black Trump supporter who was presumed to be Anderson at the time was stabbed at a rally only a few weeks ago. This was the first time in all these encounters that Anderson was personally physically attacked.
Many had attended the rally having been told there would be more security available than the police, but unfortunately this was not the case. The Team Save America Rally Organizers did not have an exit strategy, and their only protection was pre-established barriers set up by local law enforcement.
When Anderson saw a fellow patriot trying to fight his was into the barricade, Anderson jumped over the barricade and into the crowd of Antifa to bring the man safely into the rally area. Anderson was punched in the face twice, resulting in his front two teeth getting knocked out.
In the video captured of the assault, Antifa shouted after Anderson calling him a racial slur.
The event was not able to take place, and the free speech speakers and attendants were greatly outnumbered by Antifa and BLM who had been spreading word about this event for weeks prior.
After the event wasn’t able to happen following what is being charged as a hate crime against Anderson, many new outlets such as OANN andInfoWars showed the world what happened to Anderson. Within a matter of days, Anderson was deplatformed from Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
When you Google Philip Anderson and San Fransisco, you have to scroll through pages of results before finding any article that doesn’t refer to the Team Save America rally as some kind of either white nationalist movement or according to News Week which tried to liken the rally to the Unite the Right Rally that took place in Charlottesville.
As of this morning, the GoFundMe created for Anderson was removed. The reason is still unknown but Crigler who created the fundraiser assumes its thanks to mass flagging and reporting from fellow Antifa members.
