Some "Charitable Humans" Aren't Very Giving Toward "Red State" Texas

Authored by Daisy Luther via The Organic Prepper blog,

The social media manager of Charitable Humans didn’t sound particularly giving in a series of despicable tweets directed toward Texas yesterday.

This isn’t the only nasty-spirited tweet by the organization, which describes itself as a “progressive tax-exempt nonprofit organization seeking new and innovative approaches to address issues in our world and advance humanitarian causes.”

Someone grabbed a screenshot of the other shocking tweets, too.

Psst: I’d just like to point out to the misguided tweeter that Hillary Clinton actually carried the election in Houston with 707,914 votes to Trump’s 545,955 votes. (source)

While I completely support the right of any person not to donate money to a cause they find repugnant, to publically espouse such a vile opinion like that is in the poorest of taste. What a stunning stream of hatred from the spokesperson of a group that is supposed to help people in need.

This is more evidence that some people on the Left just really don’t think like the rest of us do and can justify any opinion in the name of “social justice.”

Then (not-so-) Charitable Humans sort of apologized.

After a righteous outcry on Twitter, Charitable Humans closed down all of their social media accounts and then posted an explanatory, half-hearted apology on their website, entitled “We’re Horrified by Our Twitter Actions.”

There are no words to express the distaste and hateful words that our Social Media Coordinator unleashed on what was supposed to represent Charitable Humans, an organization that has engaged in global humanitarianism activities in war-torn and severely impoverished nations since 2005. The purpose of our charity was, and so remains, to make the world a better place by focusing on a larger mandate of cultivating a global citizenship initiative along with an online platform for active engagement, and a platform to help people and nonprofit organizations like ours further the reach and impact of good deeds.

 

We don’t condone the denouncement or imperilment of any human, individual or group; ultimately because that serves no useful purpose and is rather an impairment to progressive change. Our views extend equally toward those that do good and evil in the world, for both have much to teach us about the state of humanity. We’re not for a moment implying that the targets in which the Tweets offensive content are either good, bad, or otherwise because we don’t believe those words are more than labels based upon an individual’s perception of another. Our organization views people for what they are: humans. Everything else is merely a means by which to divide us into opposing factions.

 

We take full responsibility for this outrageous lack of leadership, for which there is no excuse, though there is an explanation we’d like to put forward in the interest of transparency. We are not a large organization, and we’ve invested much time and sacrifice trying to undertake an endeavor that is much greater than we have the resources or team members to focus on at the capacity needed… (source)

I noticed that they didn’t mention whether their social media manager had been fired or not.

Instead of leaving it at that, they added more to their response as social media erupted over their horrible series of tweets, citing irony in the most ironic way possible.

As an organization, we’re doing everything in our ability to make our official position known and remove all content espousing such hateful, insensitive, and offensive viewpoints. Beyond that, what people choose to believe about our organization despite our efforts are up to them. If the actions of one individual give cause for others to condemn the whole our organization, the work we’ve done, and what we have the potential to do in the future; no response or remedy is going to matter.

 

What’s becoming obvious is that the risky proposition of continuing any endeavor, charitable or otherwise, in an environment where perfection is expected without a single misstep, is tenuous indeed. No good or progress within society is attainable wherein forgiveness is not attainable. It saddens me that there are people who will allow a single bad act to negate more than a decade of positive impact and humanitarian accomplishments, but nonetheless, we respect peoples’ right to form their own code of conduct and worldview.

 

It’s rather ironic that, in the same irrational generalization that denounced an entire sect of people, rightly offending a great many, the response by many has been to also measure the sum totality of our organization by its tweets. I point this out not as an excuse, but to highlight how divisive and impractical it is to achieve anything productive when groups take precedence over human individualism.(source)

This isn’t the first time the Left has been happy about a tragedy.

Personally, I’m having flashbacks to the Gatlinburg fire, when a bunch of “progressives” tweeted gleefully about how well-deserved the tragedy was for those who were pro-Trump during the election.

People who dislike Trump seem to think that the Gatlinburg fire is just desserts for the locals in Tennessee who voted for Donald Trump. I’ve written previously about how those protesting Trump’s election really feel about the people they believe caused Hillary Clinton’s defeat, but this takes things to a sub-human low.

Melissa Dykes reported:

 

Not only are people saying the Gatlinburg fires are “karma” for the “racist” Trump supporters who live there —

 

And saying Trump supporters “brought this on themselves” and are being punished by God for voting Trump —

 

But people are actually out there laughing about Trump supporters’ houses burning down in the Tennessee fires, and even star Michael Ian Black is making glib, dickish jokes about it.

 

Check out the whole sad, disgusting report here and weep for humanity.

 

From a prepper point of view, keep in mind that these smug, superior individuals will be the ones that feel entitled to your food and emergency supplies. While they like to portray themselves as tolerant and kind to minorities and immigrants, don’t be fooled. Their scorn for working-class, middle America couldn’t be more blatant. (source)

What a sad state of division we are in when even tragedy doesn’t pull us together. It makes you wonder if we can ever again be united.

But, mercifully, all Americans aren’t like that.

Thankfully, the people of the Gulf states are working hand in hand to aid the official response. In fact, Texas has been the kind of wonderful example of dignity and self-reliance that makes me proud to be an American.

There are many heartwarming stories of the Cajun Navy rescuing people trapped in their homes and even one of them pulling an elderly woman who was floating face down in the water and resuscitating her. Neighbors are helping neighbors, and people from all over are coming to help.

With the level of devastation (and it isn’t over yet) it may take a while. But I know that Texas will recover from this devastating disaster.

There are a lot of really nasty people in our nation--that is for DAMNED sure.  I KNOW that I am not the "only person", here, at Mr. Durden's site, sick-and-tired of the ABSOLUTE hypocrisy of "The Left".  Those liberally-minded people are always telling us on "The Right", or even "Moderates", what is right, what is wrong, and how fucked-up we are for simply wanting TRADITIONAL-VALUES, but when it comes to TRULY helping people in dire need, THAT IS THE KIND-OF-SHIT THAT THOSE "GOODY-TWO-SHOES" REALLY HAVE TO SAY, AND HOW THEY, TRULY, FEEL. Fuck them all, Folks.  They are fickle, untrustworthy, and when things get REALLY bad, have proven that you would never, EVER want them in-your-corner... Lindsey

If Seattle and Portland went in a megathrust as California went into the ocean our country might be saved from a Marixist slaughter.  Sad but true...  These morons can't even remember that their only purpose was to be anti-war.  They can't even do that anymore.  You can add five billion at risk there, thanks to them also.

Liberals certainly don't mind receiving aid from the red states. The hypocricy of the left is so repugnant. They are the largest recipients of 'aid' be it government, church or other donations. Yet when they are called to contribute and alleviate the suffering of others they find some ideological reason to be selfish. Lets see what happens when the red states decide to reciprocate.

Sorry to bust your bubble in your victimization rant, but blue states are the makers. Red states are the takers.  Look at a GDP map and a tax map.  Texas is also a maker state, it puts more money into DC than it gets out. Nonetheless, blue states don't "receive" aid from reds, they got nuthing to give.  But that tweet above is a prime, pristine, example of Hilliarys deplorables!

Until maybe 1971 was the age of recovery from disaster, because we had the basic wealth to do it then. Now places like NOLA and Houston will pretend to recover, but will not really recover at all.They will only fix the shipping ports.Nothing will save your ass if the roof of your house is under the waves.Politics is not a factor.There is a lot of suffering, and it's much worse than we're hearing about.May God help them.

Blue states are the "makers" because the entire system of financialization is set up to aid and measure their "contributions" to the economy well above those who have little involvement in the finacialized economy.Nobody is drilling oil out of the ground in NYC.  NYC can't grow enough food to feed its population.  NYC can't even generate enough power to run itself.You are looking at data that was designed to count every activity as "productive" even though it may produce nothing.  You are also looking at data that smashes the entire local popluation's productive capacity into a tiny geographic area by stacking its population into skyscrapers dozens of stories high.In short, don't be so enamoured of your gleaming glass towers in the middle of large cities.  They could not exist if it was not for what goes on out in "flyover" country.YOU ARE MORE INTERDEPENDENT THAN YOU KNOW.  More interdependent than you would care to admit.  And more interdependent than your childish ideology can probably tolerate.The proper response to this awakening is twofold:1.  Respect.2.  Humility.

Nodebt, I love exchanges with you .  Both points are solid as stone.  But it's not blue states that make the argument that helping people is bad. It's the red ones!!However, folks who grow the food, drill for the energy, catch the fish would not be anywhere near as efficient if the engineers and scientists in those high rises didn't design the circuits and wrie the code that calculates, collects, and correlates their field data, processes the satellite information for their yeild and weather patterns and helps them grow.  Interdependent, you mean we depend on each other like a team or (gasp) a family, oh hell yeah!

Most of the people in those cities are societal and economic leaches.They contribute nothing but are involved in nothing more than adding transactional frequency and volume to the financial system.This includes me. My job amounts to writing computer code and moving data from point A to point B.On the economic reports my contribution amounts to some X amount of GDP when in reality my job simply takes a fraction of someone else's actual productive activity.Unlike most in my position,  I am well aware of it and willing to admit it.

"The proper response to this awakening is twofold:1.  Respect.2.  Humility."I could not agree more.  I watched quite a few hours of unrehearsed/unscripted live video over the last few days of people helping people.  There were whites helping blacks, hispanics helping whites, blacks helping whites, and every other combination.  Not a single one of these videos featured a bit of politics or concern over race.  People were saving and helping people.  Maybe God does work in mysterious ways in teaching us through suffering that we're not each other's enemies.  Or maybe we're all just people who need to figure out how to work together.  Either way, enough with divide and conquer.

Great Post NO DEBT.  I don't know where the retort went but he is juvenile and ignorant.  Just because NYC abuses the currency and credits of this nation and begs teh totalty of its' taxpayers for said faux-GDP and just because Cali writes some code that makes algorhythms or software a "luxury" and efficiency-improving product for the Red Producing states does NOT MEAN the calculations for true GDP are any less "contorted and abused".As a Petroleum Engineer of 30+ years and Native Texan I can tell you the show would go on without NYC or Cali.  And while I recognize Cali's contributions as productive and efficiency-improving, in a truly "Pay One's Own Way" scenario, NO Blue state would do very well and NYC would literally DIE sans their ability to BEG THE ENTIRETY of the country via abusing our currency and credits.  Our Nation would be prosperous again IF ONLY WE could shed ourselves of NY State and the TBTF WS Banksters, Exchanges, and chains enslaving us to a rotten currency and credits system owned by a criminal cartel.Texas will be fine.  Houston is certainly shading very very purple these days as most large UFSA Cities but it too will recover as native Texans will come to their rescue as will and are our neighbors North, South, East and West.

It would be an interesting exercise to stop "production" in a blue state vs red state. Moving left pocket to right pocket financial bs is a hell of a lot different than pulling commodities from the ground.  I am fairly confident that the impact to the overall economy would be felt more if the "low gdp" state of North Dakota stopped producing vs the "high gdp" state of Massachusetts.

Don't even both to post the stats. They won't read them.The only thing I would disagree with is that blue states are makers. Most of the country doesn't manufacture anything anymore. Most blue states and Texas and Florida may contribute more to the Federal coffers than they get back, but it is not because the industries are producing tangible goods. It just goes to show how much of a banana republic the US has become.

And to that slug of a Florida professor who wanted to turn his back to Texas, hurricane season is not over. We have gone 5 years with little or no storms and this year might be the BIG ONE of back-to-back storms.  Florida could get it's a$$hole ripped out next month. But I won't dance on anyone's grave (cept McStain's).

Texas doesn’t have the worst score in a recent ranking of state building code systems but it’s pretty close to the bottom, according to a national organization committed to improving the ability of properties throughout the nation to withstand catastrophic weather events.

"As a Portlander who has given a small fortune of time and money to the less fortunate, and doesn't see political colors when the chips are down..."Thanks for providing a great example of virtue signaling.  Incase you don't know what you are displaying there I will define it for you."An attempt to show other people that you are a good person, for example by expressing opinions that will be acceptable to them, especially on social media. To take a conspicuous but often useless action ostensibly to support a good cause but actually to show off how much more moral you are than everybody else. "I wont be giving shit to anybody in the city of Portland if there is a disaster.  I have that right and your moral disagreement with that is not of concern to me.  This isn't about virtue it is about priorities.  Your Bolshevik sanctuary city is involved in an active program to destroy the US and spread the system of Bolshevism, a system which has killed over a hundred million minimum.  Money doesn't grow on trees and neither does empathy anymore.  I also don't believe in forced donations.  Due to this I feel compelled to spend my money on people and areas that are not actively trying to get us all killed. You go ahead and "spend a fortune" hoping that ten cents on the dollar arrive where you desire and I will attempt to keep a hundred million Americans from getting killed by your brethren.  Maybe both efforts of for naught but people have to make their own choices.  We are talking seriously Jungian shadow shit here.Fuck off as well, and if you're grouped in with the Bolsheviks you should probably move.  They tend to get everybody in their proximity killed.  Virtue signaling nor patchouli will save you from that.

"Just wait until half of Kalifornia slides into the Pacific."Totally agree.  Sorry, can't help you because you are a blue state.Eventually (and by that I mean "way too late") people realize that when you decide to substitute your own ideology for the rule of law, everyone loses.  You degernate into tribalism and the whole time it feels perfectly natural and right to everyone on both sides.  Meanwhile, the globalists and other predators swoop in and play one side against the other for their own personal benefit.Pick the level at which you are willing to stop tyranny.  The local/community level is too small and lacks sufficient resources.  The state level held out for a while but that battle is long since lost.  That leaves the nation-state level standing between you and supra-national government control.If you're a fan of one world government and WANT it to happen, I just ask one question:  If you don't like the results where are you going to go to get away from it?  Centralized control of things should scare the shit out of libs and conservatives alike.  Yet only one side seems to make even a modest attemp at pushing back on it.

I seem to remember some pretty despiscable comments after Hurricane Sandy put parts of New York City under water.That being said if I had any disposable income left after getting fucked out of my paycheck by Wall St and the Fed, I would donate some to the relief efforts.

"...people realize that when you decide to substitute your own ideology for the rule of law, everyone loses.  You degernate into tribalism and the whole time it feels perfectly natural and right to everyone on both sides.Self-righteousness and attendant tribalism is a perpetual human problem that requires checks and balances to control. Hence our constitution and the rule of law.Kissinger, for all his faults (and there are many) stated an important truth when he observed:"The fundamental problem in politics is not the opposition of wickedness, but the restraint of righteousness."

From my read of history, they'd rather nail you to the barn door, eviscerate you, and then make you watch as they gang rape and then murder your wife and girl children with a shovel handle up the vagina while you bleed out in tears. If that's too fucking graphic, and it is, that's exactly what the Bolsheviks did to people across Europe in the last century. Coming to a city near you.
