So it looks like I’m going to be sued by a white supremacist who doesn’t like it that I’ve called him a white supremacist several times over the last few years. I’m not going to go into a lot of detail right now because I need to hire an attorney (one in Texas, unfortunately) and get some advice on how exactly what I can and can’t say publicly, but in order to do that I need to raise some funds. Here’s what I do know: I’m not going to back down from this. I’m not going to let this racist jerk intimidate me into silence. But I need your help on this one, if you can give it.
I’ve looked at various ways of setting up a fund and I can’t go through the long and difficult process of setting up an actual non-profit. I thought about going with a site like GoFundMe, but they take as much as 10% out of any contributions you might give and I don’t see any point in that. So I’m just going to do this through my regular Paypal account. I will keep my readers updated as much as I can within the limits of my attorney’s advice and I promise you that if there is any money left over at the end, I will either refund it back to you or donate it to an appropriate charity, perhaps someone else’s legal defense fund who needs it, whichever you prefer.I have no idea how much this is going to cost. It could be a few hundred dollars, it could be thousands or even tens of thousands of dollars depending on how aggressive my antagonist wants to be. I will likely be filing an anti-SLAPP claim, which will increase the upfront cost on my end but might lead to recovery of costs later on. I think that’s important to deter similar threats in the future from thugs seeking to silence their critics. So if you could pitch in on this, I would really appreciate it. We can’t let these bastards intimidate us or they win.
Here’s how you can donate:
