As we reported earlier, at least thirteen members of presumptive Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden’s campaign staff have made donations to a group that helps pay cash bail for Minnesota “protesters,” the “Minnesota Freedom Fund” and the Biden people bragged about doing so on Twitter.
The Biden campaign has refused to explain why their people are supporting people arrested during rioting and looting.
President Donald Trump’s re-election campaign on Saturday said it was “disturbing” that Biden’s team “would financially support the mayhem that is hurting innocent people and destroying what good people spent their lives building,” in an email about the Reuters story that called for Biden to condemn the riots.
Here’s the local Twin Cities DSA advertising for the fund.

But the Biden folks aren’t the only one’s contributing to the fund.
It’s also gotten contributions from Hollywood and entertainment celebrities, according to the Washington Times, including from Steve Carell, Janelle Monae, Seth Rogen, Ben Schwartz and Halsey.

“#Minneapolis police precinct set on fire…While #Hollywood stars like @Sethrogen, @SteveCarell and @rejectedjokes make donations to bail out ‘peaceful protesters,’” tweeted conservative talk-radio host Buck Sexton.
The Federalist’s David Harsanyi asked Mr. Rogen to donate instead to black Minneapolis residents like Stephanie Wilford, who gave an interview sobbing over the destruction, or Korboi Balla, a former firefighter who saw rioters destroy the bar he had bought with his life savings.
“Rich white dude bailing out thugs who are burning down black neighborhoods,” tweeted Mr. Harsanyi.
With the help of the celebrities, this fund now reportedly has raised $20 million.
Chrissy Teigen said she would be donating $100,000 to bail out people across the country.
In celebration of whatever the fuck maga night is, I am committed to donating $100,000 to the bail outs of protestors across the country.

Meanwhile folks in the media like MSNBC’s Joy Reid are trying to spread the fiction that the rioters are “white supremacists.” This is monumentally ridiculous yet they will spread that at the same time as all these leftists are involved.
So why are these leftist celebrities, Biden’s people, the DSA and a leftist fund helping “white supremacists?”
The Minnesota Freedom Fund, which has called for defunding police departments and eliminating cash bail, said that “Black freedom fighters are rising up, lives on the line everywhere” and thanked “everyone who has provided support at this time.”
Perfect response to Chrissy Teigen and the other deluded leftists.
Oh, of course. Burning down the property and livelihood of innocent people is justice!
