A week later and it looks like he's not getting the response he wants... Then why does he need to be paid for this if he has to resort to social media to ask for what many unpaid and volunteer activists have already had for weeks? Thought that was covered under the reason he needed a “team” of paid employees? Rhetorical question, you don’t need to answer that.
He made some bold claims on his “Things Are Bad” video about how activism would suffer if he were to drop output to 3 videos a month. It seems “activism” is doing just fine without him.
One could ask where the money is going to but you’ll get a snarky response for an question everyone already knows the answer to.
This is like paying your landscaper or house cleaner for work, only to have them knock on your door telling you they don’t know where to get the supplies and they really need your assistance on that, otherwise it might not get done in time or the quality could suffer.
