Where did the Kickstarter money go?
How on earth do the university have deep enough pockets to pay for a charlatan for one speaking engagement?
How can she ask for that much?
she's a professional victim. it would've gone down that way whether anyone did it legitimately or not. in fact, it's a possibility no one harassed her besides, well, "trolls." she would've manufactured it no matter what though.
Not to this extreme though. She could not have drummed up all this support alone and relied on pissing off people so they would attack her, she writes a piece claiming harassment which infuriates people to continue the loop.
Anita did not personally create the entire backlash against her; she did what any good troll does and baited a weak group (video games) who thought they would win the court of public opinion by showing facts when all she had to do was shit out pathos. The biggest irony is the people who hated her the most and spent months rallying people against her (for free) just lined her pockets and are too proud/stupid to admit they got played like a fiddle.
what happens when the gig is up? i don't think even SJWs are that dense, what happens when they discover that she is nothing more than a fraudster?
Who the hell authorized a $400,000 cheque to Anita?
>Where did the Kickstarter money go?
In Anita's pockets. Where else? Mcintosh might have gotten a dollar or two too, but I doubt that he got a big share of the cake. Him being a cuck and also quite rich with his own private island and all.
>How can she ask for that much?
How can she not? There is apparently a large enough crowd of idiots that is willing to finance her and her scamfrequency project. She'll scam people as long as she gets away with it.
The people who hated her the most became the boogeyman she needed to get people not involved to donate to her cause. People rallying against her and spending dozens of hours creating content against her is what got people who were not even involved in this on her side. They didn't give her a dime but instead donated hours of work that validated her victimhood complex to all the morons who gave her money and were responsible for pulling more people in to give it attention.
Every major player who did hit pieces on her was giving her free advertising inadvertently and there was even people on your side skimming money off the controversy by collecting donations from gamergaters to fund anti-Anita projects which again made her money.
The only winning move you had was to ignore her and let it fester away as mediocre youtube videos that nobody cared about. I blame reddit mostly since they were the retards who donated money and really thought they could beat her in a PR battle when any actual media outlet had a rock hard erection to run a piece that focused on the controversy and didn't give a shit about the facts. You were never going to win trying to spread truth when emotion sells and idiots can relate to more to a woman getting harassed by nerds than a cultural Marxist agenda.
That was the smartest thing GGers did and if all they did was bleed advertisers from gawker and avoid the sideshow things would he different. The petty fights and human drama is what killed your public support.
I didn't know US institutions could or indeed would pony up the money to host her. I don't even think feminist organizations have enough money to host her.
Think about it, how much could a university pony up to get a famous rock band or pop artist to come to their campus to sing. This girl is just a small fish though. I wouldn't have given her more than 1k plus economy fare to Utah
They move on to the next controversy and the cycle begins anew. SJWs are a prime target for scamming donations out of because they will donate for the immediate feel good like they are changing the world and never stay with a single outrage long enough before the con artist can blow through the cash and move onto their next project. The scammer also has moral Teflon and can claim anyone asking for a refund and calling her a scammer is "one of those trolls trying to discredit her" and that works.
Look at the graveyard of funded SJW projects and the millions that were embezzled with nothing to show for it.
she has been conning people for years, well before any of this, it's what she does for a living
even if the movement damaged her, she would scheme some way to make money on it
maybe go the zoe route and pretend she has PTSD
>Anita gets $400k
>Gawker loses millions, Phil Fish loses his job, and cultural marxists have their attempt to control the vidya industry damaged irreparably
>Silverstring probably never gets hired again
>Anita probably going to lose everything to lawsuits sooner or later
>Game like Hatred now gets vocal support from consumers
How would this be considered anything but a massive victory?
y'think the IRS will Buttfuck her on taxes?
do they have a whistleblower scheme or something?
>Anita probably going to lose everything to lawsuits sooner or later
lmao if you think that is actually going to happen. Another controversy will get drummed up, people will forget about her and she will fade into obscurity with her pockets stuffed. Why would SJWs sue their sacred cow Anita? Its easier to blame trolls and 4chan for why she was unable to successful do anything with the donations and how toxic culture is why she was unable to continue. They will sympathize with her for being so brave and attempting to speak for women and respect her choice to stop and have a private life.
Gawker got black eyes though that aren't healing too soon.
I don't see how the IRS can screw her over. Feminist Frequency is a 501(c)3 and I assume Anita/Johnathan are not stupid enough to risk getting buttfucked by an audit and have professionals handling their paperwork.
She is a registered non-profit in the United States and her donations are tax exempt. She will be required to file a 990-N and you can bet your ass she will be compliant in keeping her status.
What I unterstand the least are the people actually throwing money at stuff like Patreon or Kickstarter for social activism without getting anything in return.
I can't even really be about wanting the satisfaction of having helped someone in need. If Anita was a hobo on the streets asking for money while having a briefcase full of about 400.000$ laying around for everyone to see, everyone would tell her to fuck off.
This just goes to show how retarded humans are, not because goobygaters did a bad job of this entire thing, but because there are human beings so stupid that Anita can make money off of them by pretending to be a ''victim'', while getting interviewed.. in a luxuary car.. getting escorted somewhere.. surrounded by security guards.. and people, despite seeing those things with their own eyes, STILL think she is some sort of ''victim''. Westerners truly are retarded.
She is already under investigation by SFPD for fraud.
SFPD suspect she made a death threat to herself to raise money for a nonprofit entity and are investigating now or have concluded their investigation. I havent kept up with the story.
it doesnt. Thats why her 501(c) status is questionable. I dont know her paperwork or how she filed but if she could get exempt status for making videos than star citizen would also be able to get exempt status for making a game via donation which is obviously not the case.
If there is a judgement against her there would be material grounds to pull her 501(c)3 status. I am very familiar with 501 tax code and I assume in her application she labeled her project as educational in nature.
The thing that confuses me with feminist frequency in terms of being a non-profit is I can't find where her board of directors is which is a requirement to have publicly listed along with her annual reports of expenditures. Her and Johnathan cannot be the only board members since that would not satisfy the requirements but I haven't really dug around to see who she has listed on her Board of Directors. Since she is registered in California (the state I know nonprofit law like the back of my hand) I would love to see if any GGers have copies of her articles of incorporation.
i know in the UK, you can find that stuff pretty easily on the charity commission website or if it is a company you can find it on the companies house website. Is there an equivalent in the USA?
>What I unterstand the least are the people actually throwing money at stuff like Patreon or Kickstarter for social activism without getting anything in return.
could be some kind of financial domination thing for some. i believe there is huge percentage of white knights tributing their female overlords.
Her EIN is 46-3408143
Code 03-2: Educational organization - 501(c)(3)
Code W: Public, Society Benefit – Multipurpose and Other
Code W99: Public, Society Benefit - Multipurpose and Other N.E.C.
I don't take notice of people with sub-average SAT requirement study fields whose thesis is shit like watching TV.
Not unless they have some real tangible talent in something like sculpting or painting or shit.
Honestly there isnt much that can be done until her 990-N has been filed for 2014 and someone is able to see her expenditures, board members and finances for the 2014 year. Right now there is not going to be much except for her initial application, articles of incorporation and any supplemental documents that were included.
If she screwed up its going to be public. If she tries to cover it up she is fucked. Not much can be done and its just playing the waiting game until then.
just google "anita sarkeesian fraud" or something. I can't find the link i read from USA today and any of the links i get in google aren't exactly reputable sources.
What i remember from the USA today story was that she supposedly was issued a death threat on twitter or something. Then on twitter she claimed she had contacted SFPD and reported the death threat. Finally she asked for donations using the threat as an example of why people should donate to her non-profit.
SFPD investigators were called by one of her backers I think and noted that even though she claimed to have reported the death threat no report was ever filed by her to SFPD personnel. After reviewing the threat itself and related comments on twitter SFPD fraud division open a probe to investigate possibly bring her up on federal charges for fundraising under false pretenses.
To be honest I have looked into FF myself and nothing about its working suggest it should have received exempt status or is even actually operating as a non-profit.
In fact even from her own fundraising reports there is alot of money unaccounted for.
I honestly believe she knows shes fucked and its only a matter of time before the feds catch all the big fish and start looking at the small ones. Same shit happened with the housing crisis. Feds went after the banks. once all the banks were dealt with they went after small time real estate businesses and individual homeowners.
>Latest financial information reported to the IRS (Month-Year) Dec-2013
The only information she has filed has been for the 2013 FY and the reason it looks like that is her total receipts for that fiscal year were under $50,000. She can't pull that same thing when for 2014 she is claiming in her annual report donations near half a million dollars.
the 2014 filings are gonna be what makes or breaks her. She made too much money for this to just go away and if she fucked up people are going to notice. IRS doesn't give a shit about muh feels unfortunately and if you didn't file the forms to the letter you will get gutted.
As long as she has receipts for every dime and can prove they were expenses on behalf of the nonprofit. She can only claim so much as administration costs. It's not like she can send in her form with "expenses - 500,000$" and not except a full audit.
Honestly in all likelihood she has a firm handling her internal audit (like most nonprofits) and already knows about how she is filing. She would have to be negligent to get fucked over.
>linking to thunderf00t
might as well link to aurini or the bananaman
Funfact: since Feminist Frequency is a 501(c)(3) any retard who gave her money can claim their donations as a tax-deductible charitable donation on their tax forms.
Ain't that some bullshit?
I'd say 90% of money to charity is a complete waste. There are tons of scams and people who make big bux running cancer charities or stuff that do nothing but take administrative fees.
