Fundraising platform and Big Tech titan GoFundMe is currently directing users to donate to a fund for a left-wing militant “hero” who “gave his life” and “tried to save others” by attacking 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse on camera.
A tweet from the official corporate GoFundMe account linked to the fundraiser, accompanied by the caption, “Here is the verified GoFundMe to support the family of Anthony Huber—the hero who gave his life attempting to take down a gunman in Kenosha & save others. All funds will be sent to Anthony’s partner & stepdaughter.”
The fundraiser page description makes the claim,”While peacefully protesting Anthony selflessly tried to Aid in taking down an attacker when he was gunned down.”

The “gunman” and “attacker” referenced in the tweet and fundraiser is 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse, who showed up in Kenosha Tuesday night with a medic kit and a rifle and said he was there to protect property and provide aid to the injured.

Rittenhouse was subsequently attacked by a looter who screamed “shoot me n**ga,” and fired several rounds that resulted in the looter receiving an apparently fatal head injury.
Clear video footage from multiple angles then shows Rittenhouse being chased, tackled, and struck in the head with a skateboard by a mob of rioters.
Rittenhouse then fired on his assailants from the ground, striking two men including one who was brandishing a Glock semiautomatic handgun.
The assailant who struck Rittenhouse with the skateboard appeared to receive a fatal gunshot wound to center mass, and is allegedly the man referenced in the GoFundMe tweet.
Meanwhile, a fundraiser for Rittenhouse was swiftly purged from the platform.
National File also reported that while Rittenhouse’s fundraiser was banned, Black Lives Matter rioters have raised $1.3 million on the platform expressly for bail money.
