Be careful not to say anything negative about the violent MS-13 gang members who are invading the U.S. with their drug trafficking murder.

Apparently, its members need protection as a "marginalized group."

That's according to Kickstarter, the online crowdfunding organization.

The Daily Torch, the publication of Americans for Limited Government, reported veteran comic-book creator Mike S. Miller has been crowdfunding for over a year with great success, raising some $350,000 from more than 6,600 backers on Indiegogo.

For his new project, starring his heroic figure "Lonestar," he tried Kickstarter, because it has a wider reach.

He loaded the basic information, and his project was approved Sept. 27. Then he started adding some artwork, the Torch reported.

Bad idea.

It showed "the hero rescuing the woman from being mugged" by gang members.

By Oct. 2, the project thrown out.

A letter from the Kickstarter "Trust and Safety" department said: "We've carefully reviewed it against our Rules, and we're unable to approve it to launch. As a Public Benefit Corporation committed to fighting inequality and creating a more equitable world, Kickstarter does not allow discrimination, subjugation, or intolerance towards marginalized groups."

Kickstarter said its protections for MS-13 gang members are "non-negotiable."

Miller shot back on Twitter.

"Hey team @kickstarter, it's nice to see that you consider MS-13 a 'marginalized group', since that's the only people who were being 'subjugated' in the artwork I provided. ... More wokeness from the tech companies on display."

The Torch called it "mean-spirited political bias by Kickstarter, no question."

The Justice Department's latest report on the "brutal Central American street gang" that engages in "sexual assault, drug and human trafficking" says MS-13 sees itself constantly at "war."

"Violence is a major part of the glue that binds the MS-13. It is part of every stage of an MS-13 member's life: potential members commit violent acts to be considered for membership and ultimately to gain entry; they are beaten into the gang in a ritual that has left more than one permanently scarred; they move up the gang ladder by 'putting in the work' and showing 'commitment,' euphemisms for committing violent acts in the name of the gang. Its rivalry with the Barrio 18 means the MS-13 is in a constant state of war. It is also facing down challenges from security forces. It operates amid potential informants. In this environment, commitment is not just a means to move up the ladder, it is about survival. It is not surprising, then that the gang has integrated this into its lexicon: Members are, as they say, soldiers," the report said.

Its members' "missions" including hacking a victim to death with a machete, sometimes leaving the dead "completely dismembered," the report said.

The Torch said: "This is what Kickstarter thinks is a 'marginalized group'? By their logic, any standard crime drama that depicts gang violence on primetime or the Emmy Award-winning series, 'Breaking Bad,' which in part depicted Mexican drug cartels and their gang enforcers who murder children, would be ineligible for funding on Kickstarter because, in its apparent view, the gangs were not bloodthirsty murderers who dismember their victims, they were actually the victims being discriminated against."

Miller describes himself as a devout Christian and political conservative.


Democrats wouldn't buy a clue if it was government subsidized.
