"Open letter" to ANewtOne.com
Since my words are now being quoted and used to endorse a Troop Show done one year ago, I figured more quotes needed to be provided. I only wish there had been time to reply earlier, but recent events have kept me tied up.
“Great idea guys.”
This was brought to my attention; and apparently is an attempt by these two fraud’s to portray that I fully endorse their actions of late; which could be no further from the truth. At the time (Dec 2007), this was a great idea. I will stand by those words. This was a time when there were more than just the two members at ATW. The fact that 3 of 5 are no longer willing to be a part of your show speaks volumes; especially since two are people that served and I have come to respect. It was, however, in no way an original idea… cue the history lesson:
History of the USO
The USO was formed in 1941 in response to a request from President Franklin D. Roosevelt who determined it would be best if private organizations handled the on-leave recreation needs of the rapidly growing U.S. armed forces. Roosevelt’s call to action led six civilian agencies to coordinate their civilian war efforts and resources to form a new organization – the USO (United Service Organizations). The six civilian agencies were the Salvation Army, Young Men’s Christian Association, Young Women’s Christian Association, National Catholic Community Services, National Travelers Aid Association and the National Jewish Welfare Board. The USO was incorporated in New York February 4, 1941. The USO is a private, nonprofit organization, supported by private citizens and corporations.
Throughout World War II, the USO was the channel for community participation in the war effort. In more than 3,000 communities, USO centers were established to become the GIs “Home Away from Home.” Between 1940 and 1944, U.S. troops grew from 50,000 to 12 million, and their need for a variety of services grew accordingly. USO facilities were quickly opened in such unlikely places as churches, log cabins, museums, castles, barns, beach and yacht clubs, railroad sleeping cars, old mansions and storefronts.
From 1941 to 1947, USO Camp Shows presented an amazing 428,521 performances. In 1945, curtains were rising 700 times a day to audiences as large as 15,000 and as small as 25 on some outposts all over the world. More than 7,000 entertainers traveled overseas. During World War II, Americans had come together as never before. By war’s end, the USO could claim that more than 1.5 million volunteers had worked on its behalf.
As the USO celebrates more than 66 years of service, the world is witnessing history-making events at a record pace, events that have influenced the very nature and mission of America’s military. But one
thing is certain: The USO will diversify and change over time…as it has throughout its history…in order to fulfill its mission to service members and their families until every one comes home. (Please continue to read about the USO...)
Last I checked, 1941 slightly pre-dates BlogtalkRadio, anewtone.com, SonlitKnight, and Jimmy Z. The idea that these two frauds would dare try and take credit and proclaim they deserve credit is absurd and disgusting. This, a year ago, may very well have been “for the troops.” However, now it is about the two of them, and their website, drumming up traffic, and demanding credit. Never once have I heard in their utterly expletive-riddled rants (directed mostly at women) any credit given to the USO. They certainly have spent more than their fair share giving themselves credit and demanding it from others.
To be honest, it reminds me of the scheme democrats came up with a few years back. They made “use the military” part of the strategy in order to gain favor in the polls. Make sure to have service members visible at campaign stops.
I think…ya’ know, I realized the true humility of the individuals involved was this statement:
“WE ARE THE BEST AND A TROOP SHOW WITHOUT US IS SIMPLY IMPOSSIBLE. WE ARE THE KINGS.”
I checked… and as noted above, if shows were done from the 40’s on the above is an outright lie. So Sonlit and Jimmy, don’t go harping about me slandering you. You knowingly made a false statement. You two might be “kings” of something but it most certainly is not troop shows. Bob Hope is the ONE AND ONLY king of troop shows. So spare us your fanatical self-deluded screeds. Rush Limbaugh defines “humble” when put next to you.
Another interesting FACT is that ASY started their show on BTR that very same December. So are you now going to say that you do more for troops than www.americasupportsyou.mil? I think not.
If I do recall correctly, it was Loki that did a fantastic job hosting the show. I think Sonlit you called twice. One maybe sincere call and another to “pimp” the site and ATW show. Classy stuff man. Classy. In the end Jimmy had better things to do than support the support show. I know we are busy people and have schedules. No excuse Jimmy. I was not going to be able to call in live due to work…… that is why I took the minor moments out of my day to record a message and get it to Loki to be played.
I will leave the public with this: be careful who you allow to lead you. When wanting to support this country and our Armed Services, there are far better sources to find pride. I will take my name out of the running. Loki, Snooper, Doug and others who are Veterans and ACTUALLY served, including those that host shows on the Pentagon Channel on BTR, for example ASY. And also, civvies like Flag Gazer who run a blog with the sole intention of SUPPORTING and HONORING the TROOPS.
On my final note, of the CURRENT makeup of American Truth Warriors I have more respect for maggots, for they serve a purpose. After wearing the uniform, this troop sure as hell did not appreciate your recent attempts to wrap yourselves in the flag and proclaim yourselves as “the king.”
For if you were REALLY doing the show FOR the troops, you would be calling those in uniform the kings… NOT YOURSELF.
I kindly request you quote the above line along with my other one you are currently displaying.
