Somebody set up a GoFundMe account for the Chicago craft store employee who was berated by that crazy Trump supporter.

Remember her?

This from the GoFundMe page: 

On the night before Thanksgiving, I witnessed a white woman engage in a 30 minute racist rant (complete with yelling and cursing and repeated references to the fact that employees were African American) against the employees at a Chicago Michaels store - because she did not like that they offered her the option to purchase a re-usable shopping bag for her larger items. I was directly in front of this customer in line, I stopped at the exit to show my 2 year old a Christmas ornament and witnessed first-hand that the Michaels’ employees did nothing to provoke this verbal attack, and in fact treated all customers with professionalism and courtesy. I was so shocked by this unprovoked attack that I captured 17 minutes of it on video on my phone. I am starting this gofundme because I’d like to do something to try to make it up to the employee who was the main target of this racist attack. I’d like to show her that many people are horrified by how this woman treated her, and that we stand with her and appreciate her hard work. She inspired me because despite the hateful words that were being hurled in her direction, she stood in that entranceway calm and unmoving to protect her staff and customers. Her calmness calmed me and I saw a true leader, which in today’s world, is something to be rewarded. All proceeds from this gofundme will be given to this employee, who has three children, to try to make her busy holiday season brighter. In the current climate I believe it’s very important that we go out of our way to treat each other with dignity, kindness and politeness, and that we stand up for each other when we see people being mistreated. 

***Thank you so much for everyone's kindness and generosity, I want to reiterate that the police were called, bystanders, including myself, were actively involved and the staff handled this flawlessly. There is so much you don't see in this video. Atleast ten customers stood next to the manager and waited for the police. That is what shocked the manager and myself the most, that people actually spoke up. You had to be there to see how the people were united. Thank you so much for helping me with this small gesture to thank this employee. Over 48,000 people have seen this video, if that many people gifted $1 this could be life-changing. I saw a hero and a leader in this manager. I was inspired by her. This incident started over a $1 re-usuable bag, but it's not new for African Americans and other POC. We have to stand up, if you can't speak up, at least be a witness and share your story.

As of this posting that account has already received more than $18,000 in donations.

However it appears that we may actually need more GoFundMe accounts because that lady is not finished taking out her Trump inspired wrath on defenseless store employees.

Jesus I can only imagine how much worse this will be when Cheeto Jesus actually takes office.

    I am happy for the Michael's employee as well as the lady who has defended her. This is far more worthwhile than another GoFundMe account mentioned on this site.

      I would love love love to donate more money to the Johnstons. Helping this family is one of the best things I have done this year. Jesse, say the word and my wallet it open. I don't care if family court seizes it all and gives it to Bristol for back child support. That just means that they are closer to freedom from that witch. Also, I would love for Jesse to write an update on some of the family's adventures. I doesn't have to be about Bristol or child custody at all. I see some things about Sunny climbing a mountain with 60 pounds on her back and then killing large animals. All the while still looking gorgeous. Wow!. I would love a detailed story of that adventure. Maybe Sunny could write it! I can't picture ANYONE in the Palin family doing that. They would use vehicles such as 4 wheelers, planes, or snow machines. After all, you can't go without you booze and Louis Vitton.....

      @6:24- Are you referring to the GFME account for Sunnee and Levi?

      News flash for you: THIS IS A FREE COUNTRY!
      We can give money to whomever we want, and you will just have to accept that thousands of people wanted to help out a young couple who were being persecuted by the Palin family human scum

      @6:24 AM Why be such a bitch so early in the morning? Funds for the very nice Johnstons are much more helpful than buying an online diarrhea drink to help a grifting, bastard breeding liar. Joey Junker dodged a child support bullet.

      Old Florida Fatty has such a hard-on for Sunny and Levi. I'd find it funny if she wasn't so threatening towards them in real life.

      They must thank god daily that she's 5000 miles away and her parents keep her under lock and key.

  2. She has a voice almost as shrieky as Granny Grifter and she uses the same little hand gestures as her portly orange hero.
    It's gonna be a looong 4 years!

    Wouldn't it be great of Trump took advantage of his Victory Tour, to tell his supporters to stop all this hate behavior and to come together and treat everyone with respect? Boy I would love to see that happen over and over again. But, I know this is a hopeless cause. Instead he will probably get them all even more worked up and disturbed and we will probably see this sort of hate just intensify.

    As they say, "we won", well, why not be a good winner? Do they even have it in them? Probably not.

      The military has used video games for recruitment and training for decades and consequently civilian games have evolved to more resemble conditions found in current warfare situations.

      I also thought the photo, made to look like a Georges de la Tour painting of a group of "saintly" figures, was creepy. Next we'll all be required to have a portrait of the orange one in our homes.

      Wonder how much that dinner cost the taxpayers? Donnie seems to spend our money freely, if he were paying they would have gone to some pizza joint.

    I donated to the manager's gfme account. The shopper's behavior was despicable, and the manager's behavior was exemplary and should be rewarded for her calm reserve.
    It is clear the woman has underlying issues which cause her to rant for a half hour. She needs help.

    THIS!"FURTHER RESOLVED, That we condemn all hate crimes and hate speech perpetrated in this election’s wake. That although the United States will soon have a President who has demonstrated a lack of respect for the values we hold in the highest regard in San Francisco, it cannot change who we are, and it will never change our values. We argue, we campaign, we debate vigorously within San Francisco, but on these points we are 100 percent united. We will fight discrimination and recklessness in all its forms. We are one City. And we will move forward together." RESIST!

    "12 percent of respondents, who were selected from different social and demographic backgrounds, said forced sexual intercourse was acceptable if the victim was "drunk or on drugs". One in five said that violence against women was "often provoked by the victim".
