TEN THOUSAND PLUS DEAD, Millions in Dire, Terrible Need and the Politically Correct, Ever-So-Educated HuffPo Crowd

…is putting out tweets like this:

GOD, their self-absorbed smugness BURNS MY ASS.

I’ve NEVER met ANYBODY like the Salvation Army in a major disaster zone and I’ve been in THREE. They’re the first in, the last to leave and they work their asses off 24/7 to help EVERY SINGLE SOUL IN NEED, it doesn’t matter if you’re black, white, orange, green, purple, gay, bi, straight or zombie. They want YOU taken care of as best they can and they do it.

From a previous post with Hurricane Katrina overhead:

UPDATE: While I can get online, let me first thanks Bingster for posting this, but please, please let me add my fervent appeal for your donations to go to the Salvation Army. We have unfortunately gotten to see all the aid agencies in action. The Salvation Army has impressed us tremendously with their selflessness and dedication to people’s immediate needs and their continuing ones. They were literally a Godsend after Ivan and stuck around through thick and thin for months afterwards. For everybody. Feeding people, clothing them, sheltering them, holding hands, getting answers. If you need it, they’re there if there’s anyway on earth possible for them to be.

Not to mention the fact, they have the infrastructure, knowledge and well-oiled disaster relief machines to do it. With the ADDED BONUS that EVERY DOLLAR YOU SEND FOR THAT DISASTER GOES to RELIEF IN THAT DISASTER. Not like the predatious Red Cross (and other “relief organizations”), who reserve the right to use those dollars where “they see the need”, like headquarters, salaries and jaunts.

Oh, I am HOT.

ths update: Wow. She actually paid attention to my tweets in reply defending the Salvation Army. And learned something. How really nice. (And I MEAN that in the NICEST way possible.)

    Amen, Sis. Ask anyone who went through the Loma Prieta (SF) quake in 1989. Art Agnos had to fight the Red Cross to get them to cough up the donations earmarked for the victims of that quake. (Interesting – I found a huffpost interview with Art Agnos stating just that – how soon they forget.)

  2. JeffS says:

    That’s why I stopped donating to the Red Cross, and similar agencies, years ago. Only to the Salvation Army.

    I’ll find a bit more to add this month. And the next few months.

  3. JeffS says:

    PS: I’m sick of self-absorbed lefties politicizing everything. Especially charity, and disaster relief in particular. I bet if they were hungry after a disaster, they would be complaining that the Salvation Army should have arrived sooner, while stuffing their pie holes with their first meal in 3 days.

    Really, HuffPo? REALLY?

    They disgust me.

  5. ricki says:

    And: What JeffS said. What he said SO MUCH.

    (I have a friend who survived a minor disaster – a hurricane – and she still praises the Salvation Army for their fast response and their compassion)

  6. aelfheld says:

    That the Salvation Army gives the left/liberal/progressives the fantods is all the more reason to donate to them rather than the ‘politically approved’ outfits.

  7. Gunslinger says:

    I’ve been donating to the Salvation Army for years and there is no better charitable organization on the planet.

    The fact that it gives moron liberals a case of the vapors is extra gravy.

  8. Kathy Kinsley says:

    @gunslinger – I actually do have some problems with how they deal with day-to-day disasters (homeless, etc.) BUT. I swallow my disapproval and donate every chance I get (goods if I don’t have money) because they are absolutely the best disaster relief agency going.

  9. Mr. Bingley says:

    and that’s fine, Kathy. Different folks are more adept at different things.

  10. JeffS says:

    Regarding the update … …

    My goodness, a leftie who is not completely self-absorbed? I’m shocked. Delighted, mind you, but shocked. There’s a thin ray of hope for humanity.

    And, no, I do not exaggerate.
