Pro-establishment hackers ranting about 'misinformation' and the dangers of opposing government mandates hit crowdfunding platform GiveSendGo on Sunday, posting a manifesto which scrolled over a scene from the Disney movie 'Frozen,' while also releasing a list of donors to the $8.6 million Freedom Convoy fundraiser.
"ATTENTION GIVESENDGO GRIFTERS AND HATRIOTS" begins the screed.
"The Canadian government has informed you that the money you assholes raised to fund an insurrection is frozen
TD bank has frozen several accounts
You helped fund the January 6 insurrection in the US
You helped fund an insurrection in Ottawa
In fact, you are committed to funding anything that keeps the raging fire of misinformation going until that it burns the world's collective democracies down."
[Hackers now love democracies and not fighting the man, apparently.]
"On behalf of the sane people worldwide who wish to continue living in a democracy, I am now telling you that GIVESENDGO itself is frozen."
The manifesto then attacks the "convoy of trucks to protest vaccine requirements," suggesting that the leaders of the protests are "known extremists who publicly stated that they want to overthrow the government," and "held a city hostage for weeks while terrorizing the peaceful citizens who live there."
A conspiracy theory forms:
"Trucker convoys are now either taking place or being planned all over the world," the text continues. "Has anyone really thought about how dangerous this is, especially during these times?
Governments and law enforcement need to consider the possibility that some of these folks may not simply be ordinary truckers and are fed up with masks and vaccine mandates...
...The possibility that a convoy movement like this could be a cover for a type of trojan horse attack where extremists and militia groups may arrive in large numbers with weapons, large onvoys of trucks moving in capital cities will look normal given the theme of these worldwide protests..."
According to Queens University senior fellow Amarnath Amarasingam, 56% of the donations came from the US, 39% came from Canada, and 2% came from the UK.

Absolutely glowing 'let that be a lesson' to those who might raise funds for conservative causes, is it not?
This guy and the thousands of people who are now using the GiveSendGo dox to identify and out their coworkers and neighbors as “insurrectionists” would’ve worked for the Gestapo. Remember: they’re the good guys. pic.twitter.com/e0bgg9ZeJ5— Ian Miles Cheong (@stillgray) February 14, 2022
Have those "oh-so-dangerous" right-wingers ever hacked a left-wing fundraiser or got it deplatformed just because they disagreed with their political point-of-view? Sorry, clowns, *you're* the fascists. #GiveSendGo pic.twitter.com/fuRnUQbCFE— Kyle Becker 🚚🚜🐎 (@kylenabecker) February 14, 2022
Since the convoy found an alternative way to fundraise after GoFundMe banned them, many far-left activists have sought to take down/hack GiveSendGo and to dox anyone who donated as punishment. They’re using Twitter to facilitate & encourage the criminal activity. pic.twitter.com/hmtP5O0j0d— Andy Ngô 🏳️🌈 (@MrAndyNgo) February 14, 2022
