On Sunday, December 16th, Brian Kolfage, a right wing personality that pops up in the news every now and then, started a Gofundme page to raise (insert Dr. Evil voice) One Billion Dollars moohoohahahahaha! Naturally, thousands of white Republican voters suffering from "economic anxiety" rushed to throw money at him. As of 8:30 AM EST on Wednesday, the crowdfunding effort has raised just shy of half a million with the largest donation being an anonymous $5000 contribution. So much for Mexico paying for the wall.

Unless the Koch brothers or the Mercers start sending in ten digit checks, this isn't going to work. Even if Kolfage managed to find enough bigots to raise, let's say, half of the billion he's currently allowed (one billion is Gofundme's limit, an interesting factoid to tuck away), that is not going to convince the Democrats who will control the House next year to give Trump the money he wants to build his monument to his manhood. So this entire project is a colossal waste of time.

However, it does give us a fascinating view into just how racist white Republican voters are. Take a look at Kolfage's pitch:

A majority of Americans who voted to elect President Donald J Trump voted for him to Make America Great Again. President Trump’s main campaign promise was to BUILD THE WALL. And as he’s followed through on just about every promise so far, this wall project needs to be completed still.

As a veteran who has given so much, 3 limbs, I feel deeply invested to this nation to ensure future generations have everything we have today. Too many Americans have been murdered by illegal aliens and too many illegals are taking advantage of the United States taxpayers with no means of ever contributing to our society.

"Too many Americans have been murdered by illegal aliens and too many illegals are taking advantage of the United States taxpayers with no means of ever contributing to our society." The ignorance and bigotry would be painful if it weren't so commonplace. Putting aside that undocumented immigrants commit significantly less crime than second generation and later Americans and contribute so much to our economy that it would literally collapse without them, Kolfage is clearly appealing to the ugliest urges of Trump's base here.

So while this fundraiser won't get the wall built, it will be a helpful metric in gauging how enthusiastic white Republican voters are to throw money away on blatantly racist causes. As I finish writing this, it is 9:16 AM EST and around $45,000 has been added to the fundraiser. Over 8,000 bigots are happily throwing money at Trump's ode to his penis. These same people would scream bloody murder if a penny of it went to feed a hungry child with brown skin. Remember that when someone tells you we need to find a middle ground with them.
