Wounded Warrior Project Participates in Demonization of Firearms

Those who treasure our priceless Second Amendment liberties need to be very careful where we donate, lest we shoot ourselves in the foot. Anti-Constitutional moonbats can be found behind even the most seemingly benevolent enterprises, including the Wounded Warrior Project, as Tom Gresham of Gun Talk Radio reveals:

We were disappointed when the Leslie Coleman, PR director for WWP, said they couldn’t come on the show … because we “are related to firearms.”

“While we appreciate the interest in having a WWP representative on your show on Veterans Day we are not able to participate in interviews or activities with media/organizations that are related to firearms,” said Ms. Coleman in her email.

Coleman pules that returning vets have used guns to commit suicide. Apparently they would prefer suicides to fling themselves off bridges or the tops of buildings.

WWP also disapproves of knives, refusing to “co-brand” with manufacturers. Vets might cut themselves.

Keeping guns and knives company on the no co-brand list are alcohol and pornography.

Despite the great work WWP does, the gun issue is not trivial, especially in light of the firestorm of anti-gun propaganda the media has whipped up in response to Sandy Hook. Gresham has a “No Shrug” policy that entails never doing business with any outfit that labels gun-owners as undesirables, because to shrug and take the abuse is to participate in a campaign of demonization intended to result in the denial of our right to bear arms.

Good thing WWP doesn’t have a monopoly. There is no shortage of organizations that help vets.

    I did some research last month on WWP and saw that donations were not used very effeciently so opted against donating to WWP. The info can be found here.

    I received an odd call from a supposed pro life group asking for support last week, touting their endorsement by Newsweek magazine.
    Being that Newsweak is about as pro life as Dr Goebbles, I decided to do some research
    Here is what I found

    Thanks for the heads-up.

    My year end donation was going to WWP. Thanks for the info. I’ll be sending to the Fisher House instead.

    The WWP commercials air constantly on Fox News and whenever they come on I have to change the channel. They are so exploitive and maudlin and they remind me of the old Sally Struthers commercials for Christian Childrens Fund that showed starving children with flies ligthing on them with Sally’s pathetic pleading naration.

    My sister worked for a competing non-profit that did the same kind of work but their commercials were boring by comparison. I asked her one day why her organization didn’t do the same kinds of commercials and she got really angry. She said that the CCF commercials were an industry joke, were loathed by people dedicated to the cause, and they were ineffective in getting people to give money. Oh, they tore at the heart strings, but they did so by the most despicable exploitive tactics that ultimately turned people off. And she said CCF was pretty much a scam. Most of the money they raised went to admin costs and not to poor children.

    Everytime I see one of those WWP commercials I also think of what I learned back in the 2004 election during the Swift Boat/Kerry controversy. After Vietnam, Hollywood and the news media depicted returning vets as damaged goods. They were all drug addicted, PTSD suffering, lunatic time bombs just waiting to go off. The only difference I see now, with todays vets, is that instead of being dangerous lunatics we all have to be afraid of, they’re all sad, helpless victims who deserve pity.

    I really hate those commercials and I’d be very curious to see what veterans themselves think of them.

  • Master of Sinanju

    Well F*&k me, I guess they wont be getting anymore of my money!

  • Sam Adams

    The wounded warrior commercials remind me of those produced by groups trying to protect homeless and abused pets.

    We have do-gooder liberals that have thoroughly infested our society, along with their crackpot thinking.

    Truth be told, without firearms, we wouldn’t have as many wounded warriors…we’d have a lot more dead warriors.

  • Jodie

    I met with a number of Wounded Warriors a while back. The common theme that came out of our conversations was that they hated the medications that they were being given. They talked about the nasty side effects of the meds and often said that they weren’t helping anyway. Most of them complained about morphine and the terrible nightmares and other side effects that it causes.

    Of course, any talk about the dangers of prescription drugs if off limits in the MSM these days.

  • oldguy

    I would think the types of people who would donate to this organization would be gun owning conservatives. Who hired this silly woman?

  • http://moonbattery czuch

    Google Sam Kinnison on the “feeding the hungry” issue.
    Again, he’s correct. Sally Struthers’ ads make me puke as do 99% of chariries. They are a buisness. The ceo’s make a bundle. Goodwill is anything but.
    Give your charity directly to ther person you feel moved to donate to.
    If you do it for tax reasons, it aint from the heart.

    Someone needs to tell Bill O’Reilly. He says he’s a “2nd amendment guy”, but most of the profits from the sale of his clothing, etc., go to WW.

    Too bad, any organization that tries to help these men and women should be a good thing, but not if they’re in the same league as the Brady Bunch.

    WORD OF THE DAY
    FIREARM, n.

    1) An item that the Constitution guarantees you have a right to “keep and bear”, but the Nanny State won’t let you purchase.

    2) An egregiously maligned safety measure, which is a law abiding citizen’s first line of defense, when some rat bastard threatens the health and safety of unarmed innocents.

    QUOTABLE QUOTES
    “We did indeed know much about your preparedness. We knew that probably every second home in your country contained firearms. We knew that your country actually had state championships for private citizens shooting military rifles. We were not fools to set foot in such quicksand…”

    We should all know by now how the Left will use any entity they can to exploit people and further their true agenda. And don’t be fooled into thinking Fox is a “conservative” network. They are not!

  • Lion Chris

    A project started by a good friend of mine (and a Viet-Nam Veteran). It is called “Project New Hope” and tries to help all veterans with PTSD.

    http://www.projectnewhope.net/

    It is run for veterans, by veterans, who are all fully volunteers. It’s main support is from Lions Clubs and those people who hear about it. No fancy advertising, no free blanket if you donate, no bleeding heart comercials, just good work.

    Please check out their web-site and if you’re so moved, make a donation. It is well worth it and will make a HUGE difference in someone’s life. It won’t go towards executive salaries and advertising to get more donations.

    (You might want to check out the Lions Club in your local area as well. It’s not your father’s club anymore. We Serve)

    Sorry; Bill isn’t a 2nd amendment guy, nor is he a conservative. He has carried a lot of water for Obama, hoping for the next interview. He tends to be quite a statist. Just listen to him rant about the oil companies some time.

    He’s off my Christmas Card list.

    I learned my lesson about joining groups and it’s the same one I came away from marriage with : be careful who with whom you sleep
    I fear that the NRA is in the same boat…

  • Vermin

    It has to be said as often as possible: Our once formidable military has been reduced to a celebration of moonbat lunacy, and most veterans groups are active participants in the effort to make veterans into a Democrat constituency by turning them into professional victims.

    If you’re looking for something to support consider this.

    Thanks (as always) for pointing that out, Jodie. So much for the Left supposedly being ‘against’ Big Pharma. Hypocrites.

  • Jodie

    Jester,

    You’re welcome. I’m glad that you appreciated it! I just wish I had written “is” instead of “if”. ;)

    This little tidbit should fit right in with this topic:

    Libs trying to bully those they disagree with, this time on guns:

    Right Wing Needs to Stop Crazy Explanations for Newtown Slaughter

    I have a more direct interpretation of what libs really are saying: Conservative red-blooded Americans should just shut the eff up and do was we say and pay taxes.

    Heck, I heard Rush talking about the Bankruptcy Belt States™ soon charging those who leave for more fiscally sound pastures an “exit tax” like the Soviet Union used to do.

    Unfortunately the progs are very good at infiltrating any organization that has money. They have long ago breached AARP, National League of Women’s Voters, and most philanthropic trusts. They know where the money is and how to spend it to further their porg causes.

  • http://www.paws4ptsd.org Paws4PTSD

    I was a supporter for a while of WWP. However several things have turned me away from them and others like them. We are here to help, Christian based, value driven, and here to help anyone suffering the effects of PTSD. Come find us on facebook http://www.facebook.com/paws4ptsd and join our community.

  • Patrick

    Well dang, I love to give to WWP. I guess I have to stop for their own good, even to the point of now requesting ‘paper’ specifically at the checkout line at the supermarket (my former primary point of giving). Wouldn’t want any TBI fakers suffocating themselves with my forgotten plastic bags or anything…

    May I suggest an alternative that’s doing much better work? See “The Mission Continues”. Also look up Eric Greitens – his book tour presentation on CSPAN’s BookTV is riveting. He is a founding member of The Mission Coninues”.
