Conservative independent filmmakers Ann McElhinney and Phelim McAleer used the popular crowdfunding website Kickstarter to raise more than $200,000 for their last movie FrackNation, a documentary that corrected many of the misconceptions that hydraulic fracturing for natural gas is harmful to the environment. They decided to use Kickstarter again for their next movie, Gosnell, The Doctor Is Sin.
Kermit Gosnell is an imprisoned doctor who specialized in late term abortions. He was sentenced to life in prison for multiple murder of patients. ABC's Terry Moran calls him ¨the most successful serial killer in the history of the world.¨
Little did the filmmakers know that raising money for a movie about a convicted murder and serial mass abortionist was objectionable and might upset ¨community guidelines.¨ A Kickstarter rep would not allow the project on their website unless the phrase 'thousands of babies stabbed to death' was deleted or changed. Why? ¨Our Community Guidelines outline that we encourage and enforce a culture of respect and consideration.¨
What kind of community objects to factually identifying the documented actions of a convicted serial killer who was sent to prison?
Kickstarter doesn't like projects that draw attention to a notorious abortionist, but their community guidelines are fine with:
- Belle Gunness Documentary - Indiana's Killer. It has a picture of a dead body on the project page.
- Arctic Hysteria. Part musical, part B-grade incest porn.
- Memoirs of a Gigolo. Serialized memoirs of a London based male escort.
- Pot: The Card Game. For the marijuana connoisseur.
There also 28 projects with the F-word in it, but these must have passed the community guidelines of culture and respect.
Once more we see that liberals are open-minded when it comes to promoting anti-traditional values, but when it comes to a project that will show the abortion industry in it's worst light, they take action to suppress free speech.
Fortunately, the movie producers have been able to obtain alternate crowdfunding elsewhere at Indiegogo. So far they have raised over $300,000 toward a goal of $2,100,000.
I look forward to the success of this film effort. The death of more than 50 million aborted babies in America in the last 40 years is not an affront to community guidelines of culture and respect.
