This is a piece written by a volunteer for this website that was not suggested by Chris.
Chris is currently in jail as a political prisoner for what happened in Charlottesville. He could have done what a lot of people such as myself did that night, and just stayed home, watched what was happening on the livestreams, then talked about it non-stop on social media and on his podcast. Had he done that, his personal life would be so much better right now. He would be in his house doing the podcast 3-5 days per week. Instead, he risked everything going out there.
Since then, lots of bad things happened to him. He was banned from Facebook, Instagram, and OkCupid. He was lied about in the media who referred to him the “crying nazi” despite the fact that Chris is not a nazi. He has also lost access to his paypal account which will make it harder for him to receive payments when he gets out. He’s being held in jail being denied bail despite the fact the first judge granted it to him and that the prosecution appealed. He’s in jail because he was protesting for your rights.
At the time I began writing this, on the Goyfundme link he has raised $8,806.81 from 128 different people. That’s an average of $68.80 per donor. The initial goal was $25,000. He’s over 1/3 of the way there. There’s a lot of fees involved in a court case, and he still has his other bills that he needs to pay. Lots of people have done great work for the movement or have donated money to others who have. For you guys, we couldn’t be more grateful. For people who haven’t donated anything yet, now is your chance. There will never be a more important time to do so.
