Just two days after the crew of the “Dana” show on TheBlaze TV set up an ambitious GoFundMe fundraising goal of $25,000 to counter the onslaught of hate directed against Memories Pizza in Indiana, the campaign has closed with a remarkable total of $842,387.
“Dana” contributor Lawrence Jones explained that the fund was simply intended to help the pizzeria’s owners “stave off the burdensome cost of having the media parked out front, activists tearing them down, and no customers coming in.
“Our goal was simply to help take one thing off this family’s plate as the strangers sought to destroy them,” he continued. As it turned out, it was strangers who stepped up to defend them, and quite ably so.
If we’re crowdfunding liberal butthurt remedies now, we’d better set the goal a lot higher.
Or perhaps let them buy their own; Memories Pizza isn’t the only business under attack out there.
This Christian grandmother, for example, referred a long-time customer to another florist to provide flowers for a same-sex wedding and was sued by both the couple and the Washington State Attorney General.
