Charity Gone Wrong

Last Friday, between 10:00 a.m. and 2 p.m., three Hells Angels in Porter County Indiana, east of Chicago, tried to show their community and Christmas spirit by manning a Salvation Army donation kettle at a Walmart in Valparaiso.

You know, big, tough guys with hearts of gold.

Saturday afternoon, the Northwest Indiana Region charter of the big red club posted photographs of three members posing next to a kettle with the caption “Thank you Valparaiso for showing your support for our less fortunate neighbors, You helped us fill 6 buckets fulla cash! Big thanks to the Salvation Army for the opportunity to help our community.”

What could go wrong? One of the Angels was wearing a side rocker that read “Aryan.” Another guy had adorned his vest with a Confederate flag. The photos were on Facebook and 10,000 people saw them.

The situation cooked off for about a day before finally exploding into a storm of political correctness yesterday.

BOOM!

Walmart told Newsweek the offensive word “Aryan” and the flag of the Lost Cause were not the retailers fault.

“As soon as this was brought to our attention we asked the Salvation Army Bell Ringers to leave. We made the Salvation Army aware and they apologized,” Walmart said. “The Salvation Army is responsible for screening its volunteers stationed outside our stores. We’ve had a long history of supporting the Salvation Army and regret this isolated incident. We will direct further questions to the Salvation Army.”

A spokesman for the Salvation Army told The Times of Northwest Indiana that the charity was “embarrassed” by the patches. Lt. Christopher Nicolai told the paper, “Our commitment to nondiscrimination includes a dress code for bell ringers, requiring that they wear red Salvation Army aprons, and making it clear that no ‘symbol, marking or lettering that is viewed as discrimination” may be worn.’ Clearly, the bell ringers in question did not comply with this dress code. They will not be allowed to volunteer in the future. We are embarrassed that we were unable to prevent this incident, and apologize to all who were offended, as were we.”

Angel Responds

The Times quoted an anonymous Hells Angels spokesman who said, “Our worldwide, multinational, multiracial motorcycle club accepts motorcyclists from all walks of life.”

According to the newspaper, “the representative said some members may wear ‘heritage-based’ patches, such as Latinos wearing ‘LATINO,’ Japanese wearing ‘BUSHIDO’ and whites wearing ‘ARYAN.’”

“That’s not what our clubs is about,” he said. “However like all Americans, we love exercising our freedom. Sometimes freedom means you see and hear things you may not like. We accept that. The focus of today has nothing to do with freedom though. It has to do with charity and sacrificing for you community. I’d suggest to those making negative comments that maybe a little less time should be spent exercising your freedom of speech and a little more be spent to making a positive difference in our society.”

    Joe, won’t get into a huge debate, and lay out the entire thing, but you’re right, and you’re wrong.

    Yes, Aryans were originally from the area we now know as Iran. That was beaucoup moons ago, though, and the present inhabitants are far from Aryan.

    Thousands of years ago, the Aryan tribes began a migration that took them from the Caucasus into western Europe. There they settled and founded a civilization.

    Todays Descendants of the Original European Peoples are the true Aryans.

    An ” aryan” is actually someone from Iran. Look it up.

    ANYONE of the general public ~ or even the CUNT who posted the picture on facebook-then deleted it 4 hours later ( either afraid or realizing into common sense ) should take into consideration : these MEN VOLUNTEERED and were accepted as charity workers . This particular Wal-Mart location was the scene of MANY prior thanksgiving/christmas robberies and RIPOFF’S of charity workers from the SA and other public service orginizations posted outside…… so the LOCAL HAMC CHARTER Stepped IN and offered to man the kettle outside this particular location – and help out the community and other less fortunate people who’s donations THEY Collected & GAVE FULLY – and surrendered and totally HANDED OVER THE SALVATION ARMY ALL THEY COLLECTED ON 6 DIFFERENT OCCASIONS that can & will make for a better holiday season and ease the pain and suffering of those less fortunate then ourselves . What FUCKING LIBERAL CUNT WOULD OPPOSE THIS -DESPITE WHAT PEOPLE WEAR collecting for the less fortunate ?????

    The politically Correct Pussies out there complain about everything, every day, year round. It never stops. Most of the time, I don’t care, only time it really bothers me is when these PC assholes get the Feds to act on something they shouldn’t, like freedom of speech issues against a particular group of people while ignoring another group doing the exact same thing.

    I’m sure these 81 guys didn’t remove their patches. And don’t really give a fuck about the complaining. They did a good thing and that’s all that matters.

    Funny thing is, If they didn’t wear their colors that day, they’re the same guys, but I’d bet there wouldn’t have been any complaints.

    I don’t mind if people fear me, or look at me with disgust or whatever. Because I know deep down, these same citizens whish they had the balls to be me. To not fit in, to do as you please, To stand up for yourself.

    But because they’re too afraid, because they’re the type the feds can control, they have to hate me to hide their own cowardice.
    Whatever…I’m going to continue to do what I do for as long as I can.

    Respect for the real 1%

    By the way Gandalf, you still don’t bother me! Speak your mind, makes no difference to me. I’m sure there’s plenty out there who couldn’t care less what I have to say, but I say it anyhow.
