After the release of the Breitbarted anti-Planned Parenthood videos, the organization has seen an sharp increase in donations. Some contributors are trolling Republicans with their donations.
After Jeb! Bush (emphasis his) said on Tuesday that he wasn’t sure “we need a half a billion dollars for women’s health issues” in the federal budget — and then backed off — Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains received a donation. Others came in ‘in honor’ of other Republicans.
“Thank you so much for your gift … in honor of Jeb Bush,” the response to one contributor from the organization reads.
The Washington Post reports:
Designer Mike Monteiro, a popular Twitter user whose love of Internet trolling is (or should be) legendary, seized on the idea and encouraged followers to donate in the name of other Republican politicians. One gave in honor of Mike Huckabee, another in honor of Ted Cruz.Curious about how many donations Planned Parenthood received in honor of 2016 candidates, we reached out to it. The organization’s Liz Clark provided us with a breakdown. So, in the money-where-your-mouth-is Republican Trolling Primary….
Sen. Joni Ernst (R-Iowa) is included on that list because she led the effort to strip federal funding from the organization.
Most of the donations were under $100. Other donations came in in ‘honor’ of David Daleiden and the Center for Medical Progress, It was Daleiden’s organization which recorded and released the undercover videos that have been scrutinized over their heavily edited version.
I am going to donate in this woman’s name who tagged me with David Daldeiden’s (protected) Twitter account and says she’s ‘monitoring’ me.
Isn’t she adorable? Her message to my account didn’t go down well on Twitter. We’ll just say that Anonymous noticed her tweet.
“I think it’s important to note that we’re seeing more people writing in with messages of support for Planned Parenthood and the work we do than taking jabs at politicians,” Clark said.
