Salvation Army's Donors Withdraw Support
in Response to Racial 'Wokeness' Initiative

Original Article

Posted By: earlybird, 11/28/2021 4:31:47 PM

As The Salvation Army launches its Red Kettle Campaign this holiday season, some of its long-time donors are withdrawing their support from the 156-year old charitable organization citing its newly embraced "woke" ideology as the reason. Of great concern to loyal supporters and faithful Salvationists is the initiative dubbed "Let's Talk About Racism." In a nutshell, its curriculum outlines the Christian church's alleged racial collusion and provides action steps to analyze and combat racism through an "anti-racist" lens while incorporating Critical Race Theory.(snip) why then should members of an organization built by the Christian faith to actually assist people of all races in need, be repentant of behavior

Comments:

How can they repent for something they never did?

I will give nothing to the Woke Salvation Army this year. Look for local charities that help the homeless and disadvantaged. In Tampa we have Metropolitan Ministries which changes peoples lives by feeding, housing, and rehabilitating people with job skills to live on their own. We also have the Shepherd Center in North Pinellas county which does wonderful work. Neither is woke, so far!

They lost me. Always put money in a kettle and wrote a nice check when one of our local radio stations held an all day radio fundraiser. Not any more. Tired of being told I am the source of everything that is wrong with the black community. They need to look inward. Not stabbing me in the back with your hand out. I will find another charity.

A good organization made a terrible mistake and will lose a huge amount of support. They will discover the cost of mindless surrender to political correctness. I hope it serves as an example to other nonprofits.

ALL of need to not just withold support but to drop messages in the red kettles as to why. I suggest folded pieces of paper on which is written, 'Get back on message. Christianity is not racist.'

General William Booth would be horrified and disgusted at the way racism has replaced Christianity as the message of the organization he founded.

I stopped donating to Salvation Army the day I received their donation request with that touchy-feely lingo on it. It looks like the commies got to Salvation Army big shots, too.

Ironically, I got a letter from the Salvation Army on Friday. Here's the message I enclosed in the donation envelope: "Here is your sincere apology: I am sorry I donated to your organization every Christmas for as long as I can remember. In fact, I often donated and provided hot coffee to your workers when it was cold out. However, since you now appear to believe that white people are inherently racist and need to apologize to members of your organization and others, I am confident that you would not want my “racist” donation. Good luck with your collections this year!"

afaik it was the Christian churches who ended slavery, and afaik American anti-racists show no interest in the slavery which continues in Africa. We need more, not less Christianty, afaik. How many hundreds of thousands went and died in the US civil war, alone, to end slavery here? Does anyone remember the role of the British navy? The way American wokeists avoid justice towards those who served and died, tempts me to hold them in contempt. But I know Jesus would not like it. What won´t happen, is me taking moral lessons from the wokeists. No. I can barely evade holding them in contempt. Not sure I have succeeded in that.

I downloaded the first page of SA's "Let's Talk About Racism" pamphlet and printed 4 on a page of paper. Cut them up - folded it looks like cash, and I have dropped 5 of them off so far. No more end-of-year donation either. Go Woke, Go Broke. Making up an equal donation to a local inner-city church program.

The racism charge is pretty much a canard. Anyone can achieve success here. If you were poorly brought up you will start out in a hole, there's no doubt. This can be blamed on the parents, or parent. But there's plenty of examples of people, of all races, who have become successful, some wildly. Education, work ethic, etc. is what it takes. You just have to strive. You'd think supposedly smart people and would know this and not fall for all the racism talk..

This makes me sad. We always donate at Easter, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. I’ve asked them to correct husband’s first name the last few times I’ve sent donations, and they haven’t bothered doing that. So, since I have nothing to apologize for about racism, no donations now.

It's very strange that we have never heard any demoncrats apologize for slavery, the Civil War, segregation, Jim Crow and the Klan. They like to pretend that those were all caused by Republicans, but the Republican Party was created to do away with slavery. Even when they apologize, I will not, because I have never discriminated against anyone.

Of all the organizations to go woke, this might be the most disappointing. Even more so than the NFL. I've always loved the SA, and they always put a smile on my face at this time of year. No more. I walked past a volunteer yesterday at the Wal-Mart, wouldn't even make eye contact. I don't blame them of course, but I will have no part of it. They'll never get another nickel from me.

I’ve just discovered a charity which builds homes for Foster families and children in crisis very much like the Fisher Houses for the military. It will be receiving the donations which I used to give to the SA and Goodwill. As our wonderful President says, “Woke turns everything to shiite.”

Time to go local. SA was a charity that I thought was right. Seemed to me that the donations went to volunteers HELPING people who simply needed HELP. Suddenly there's a Salvation Army General someplace in a fancy office with staff ? Sort of like the Boy Scouts I guess. I will now find people in my local neighborhood who do good and donate to them. Bye bye SA

This really hits home with me. One December few years ago, after eating at a restaurant owned by the grandson of a very dear friend, he decline to take payment from my wife and I. When I tried to argue, he said, "just put something in a Christmas Kettle." Walking by a Salvation Army band playing in front of a Sam's Club a few days later I put a couple of Jacksons in their kettle and have done so every year since, sort of in honor of his very fine grandmother, now deceased. Maybe just to feel better about myself, but seemed like a good tradition. I am going to find something else, maybe more local, to give to from now on. Always thought the Salvation Army had a tradition of a greater percentage of their receipts actually going to good use than the more commercial charities like the Red Cross, etc., but "Go Woke, Go Broke" is the bumper sticker we all need to adopt. I would rather put money in the charcoal lighter for my grill than contribute to any outfit feeding the cancel culture cabal.

I'm so sorry that a few individuals at the Salvation Army have decided to adopt a woke position on race. I have been a supporter and donor for many years. My local chapter has done so much good in the community. I will continue to help them despite what the suits at the top say or write. The good done by the SA's food banks cannot be measured. Please, be angry with the leadership but think of the local people out of the loop doing their very best to help people regardless of race and even religion.

A previous comment here said something about how theSA could fall for wokeism .. recently, Sen Cruz asked if asking for ID was racist when voting… three dems said yes.. the republicans said no and why! When the dems responded they were extremely pseudo articulate without actually saying anything!!!! They even weren’t hesitant to express’hate’ in their answers…Appears when you confront dems with facts, invariably you get a deer in the headlite look!

There is a reason the Salvation Army now uses containers with coin slots rather than open "kettles" to collect contributions. It could be because "white supremacists" were doing snatch and runs but I doubt it.

The Salvation Army is the only street organization that I would ever donate generously to. But now, not a dime. What at shame. I remember though a few years ago they were being hectored by the usual rabble rousing wokesters. I suspect their stupid capitulation to those communists will now severely impact negatively a once great organization. I'm sure the CEO of TSA is counting on all of those woke donors and lovers of CRT to make up the monetary contributions the organization has received from many of us who will stop donating. I hope he doesn't hold his breath while waiting. Goodbye Salvation Army.

I have spent 33 years helping drunks, dope fiends and convicts find a path and a way up and away from that life. SA has always been their last door that would open,the last place where someone had a meal, a place in out of the cold, wet... a kind word. There was a price, they had to listen to a sermon, one of redemption, not of blame. A place that placed no Blame on anyone's past, but rather focused on individuals choosing their own future. This new crap is not That. One young man I met in the hospital after a call from a friend of his parents. It had been the final straw for them, he had wasted his college years getting wasted, his 5th drunken accident, this time a young lady, a friend of the family's daughter nearly killed as well.They washed their hands of him..when he was released from the hospital and served 90days in the jail, I got him a bed at "Aunt Sally's". He slept on a cot in a big open room with a hundred others, later got a shared room, eventually a place at a halfway house. I made him drop a small gift off on his parents porch for his mother that next Christmas. The following year they let him come to x-mas dinner. 30 years later? He is now President of his Family's business, an international industrial/commercial packaging operation. The checks he has sent to "aunt sally" over the years are generally more than most peoples annual salary. Some years they have been more than most peoples houses, in particular each year that he has had a child born. The year his mother died? It was middle six figures. Two of the top executives at his Corporations are people he 1st met in that cot filled gymnasium(and they are black), many of his hundreds of employees he has personally recruited from those flop houses. They are "given" a chance, but have to "Earn" a position. Repentance, Humility and Gratitude, demonstrated by personal actions are the path they all must travel. Same exact rules apply to every single individual. Race . creed, color never considered in any form. I think this New Sally will not sit well with him.

I have given several thousands to the SA over the last 15 years. I thought they were great particularly because the left hated them because they were Christian which is like garlic to a vampire. The ‘soldiers ‘ make very little which I thought was admirable. The left criticized them because they preached salvation to the old bums and drunks they fed and housed. I doubt a little of the Gospel hurt them but the left said their civil rights were being violated. What a hoot. As one poster said, I will now put a note in the kettle explaining why I won’t donate again.

Always gave to SA, which was supposedly using 99% for the Effort. Have lots of other charities to give to through our church and other churches in poor minority areas doing outreach. I will not give to SA until they turn over leadership, which will not happen What I now expect is the European model…..they’ll get the Federal Government to give them Billions of $ to help illegals or whatnot….

Perhaps a public debate on governmental lying and manipulation through the purveying of fear is about to begin. God willing, it will. I raise this hope because of a remarkable article that appeared in the Daily Telegraph (UK). Excerpts follow. No comment seems required, except the obvious: This has been a Global phenomenon. Which means: coordinated. Use of fear to control behaviour in Covid crisis was ‘totalitarian’, admit scientists Members of Scientific Pandemic Influenza Group on Behaviour express regret about ‘unethical’ methods Scientists on a committee that encouraged the use of fear to control people’s behaviour during the Covid pandemic have admitted its work was “unethical” and “totalitarian”.

NEW DELHI—The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has been building up a new kind of presence in the hotly disputed border region with India via a civilian resettlement strategy, according to Indian experts. The CCP’s “well-off society” strategy involves building well-off villages in the name of elevating people from poverty and revitalizing rural communities. Experts say, however, that these villages play an additional role in the Tibet Autonomous Region that shares thousands of miles of disputed border with India. They say the villages act as tools for the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) surveillance, border defense, and border domination, and, along with the the regime’s new land border law, are attempts at legitimizing the

The newest variant of concern of the virus that causes COVID-19 causes unusual symptoms but those symptoms are mild, a top South African doctor says. Dr. Angelique Coetzee practices in Pretoria, the capital of South Africa, one of the countries where the Omicron CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus variant was first detected earlier this month. Coetzee recalled seeing a variety of patients enter with symptoms not associated with other CCP virus strains, including a high pulse rate. “Their symptoms were so different and so mild from those I had treated before,” (snip)Most of the patients who turned up to her clinic and have tested positive for COVID-19 felt tired.

Do you ever wonder why Democratic politicians frequently resort to name calling when challenging Republicans? Why do the so-called mainstream media always seem to have the same anti-Republican talking points? (snip)Alternatively, does it seem odd that most Republican politicians and conservative speakers often try to portray their arguments as policy disagreements and their opponents as “good people” with “differing views”?(snip)The reason for this is simple: the Democratic Party over time has embraced an all-encompassing ideology that governs the way their politics and quest for power are shaped. All Democratic politicians and their pundits embrace at least some key aspects of this ideology. This fact is not readily apparent to everyone

We’ve all heard the line about winning the “hearts and minds” of the population being the key to winning a war. Over the past several generations the Left has been busy doing exactly that. They’re organized and they’ve taken over virtually every societal institution that has the ability to influence hearts and minds—especially government run education at every level. They’ve also taken over far too much of the government and, when they have the ability, they use government money—your money—to fund themselves through myriad “community action” organizations. They’ve largely taken control over the permanent government bureaucracy, thanks to decades old court rulings that ban “religious” tests—or, in effect, common decency

Wow, 72 hours ago no one even heard the name Omicron variant. Now, in less than three days, a variant has been identified, global travel has been halted, states of emergency have been declared, and now we see a pharmaceutical company announcing the variant specific vaccine trial that will begin in the U.S. in a few weeks. This government relationship with Big Pharma is certainly generating some fast action, eh? If a person was cynically inclined; while knowing governments’ need to control inflation yet cannot raise interest rates or stop purchasing debt because current legislative spending continues – a remarkable control option would be to halt demand; and a

As The Salvation Army launches its Red Kettle Campaign this holiday season, some of its long-time donors are withdrawing their support from the 156-year old charitable organization citing its newly embraced "woke" ideology as the reason. Of great concern to loyal supporters and faithful Salvationists is the initiative dubbed "Let's Talk About Racism." In a nutshell, its curriculum outlines the Christian church's alleged racial collusion and provides action steps to analyze and combat racism through an "anti-racist" lens while incorporating Critical Race Theory.(snip) why then should members of an organization built by the Christian faith to actually assist people of all races in need, be repentant of behavior

The Salvation Army recently defended an internal racism guide that discouraged "colorblindness" and encouraged staff members to "apologize for being white" after the guide faced backlash. (snip photo) The Salvation Army argued the new guide was meant to encourage discussion about racism among members of the Salvation Army. The organization denied attempting to indoctrinate or tell its donors what to think, reminding people that the guide was meant for internal use.

A New Jersey high school will remove President Woodrow Wilson from its name over complaints it perpetuates racism. The Camden School District voted on the decision 18 months ago, but due to COVID-19 priorities, the process to pick a new name had been postponed until now.High contenders to have the school named after them include former President Barack Obama, late civil rights activist and Representative John Lewis, and a superintendent who recently passed away. Initially, a 100-members committee composed of parents and school officials had been chosen to complete the task,

Chief White House medical adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci said Sunday that his Republican detractors are in reality criticizing science when they lambaste his work on the coronavirus pandemic, because “I represent science.” In an interview with CBS “Face the Nation” host Margaret Brennan, Dr. Fauci said that “anybody who’s looking at this carefully realizes that there’s a distinct anti-science flavor to this.” “So if they get up and criticize science, nobody’s going to know what they’re talking about. But if they get up and really aim their bullets at Tony Fauci, well, people could recognize there’s a person there. There’s a face, there’s a voice you can recognize

The White House on Sunday called on people to get their booster shots as a matter of urgency, as the new variant Omicron was confirmed to have arrived in North America. Joe Biden returned from his Thanksgiving break to hold an emergency meeting with his COVID advisors on Sunday evening—with Dr Anthony Fauci sounding a hopeful note, saying he believed 'existing vaccines are likely to provide a degree of protection against severe cases' from Omicron.(Snip)'Dr. Fauci also reiterated that boosters for fully vaccinated individuals provide the strongest available protection from COVID. The COVID Response Team's immediate recommendation to all vaccinated adults is to get a booster shot

The woke mob is relentless.After Kyle Rittenhouse’s acquittal on all counts earlier this month, leftist student activist groups at Arizona State University have issued a ‘list of demands’ that calls on the school to immediately expel him from campus because they claim he is a white supremacist and a “blood-thirsty murderer.”In addition to issuing their woke demands, radical student organizations like MEChA (Movimiento Estudiantil Chicanx de Aztlán), Students for Socialism, Students for Justice in Palestine, and the Multicultural Solidarity Coalition are planning a rally this week

The “Nuclear Option” for Kamala? 31 replies

I suggested last week that negative stories about Kamala Harris that ran on CNN and over at Politico were surely planted by the Biden political staff at the White House, but I’m not sure whether the same can be said about today’s much more savage story in The Telegraph: “With Kamala Harris looking unelectable, the Democrats are considering the nuclear option.” Unlike the Daily Mail, which sensationalizes news from the U.S. in tabloid style—though it must be said that it is often reporting stories the U.S. mainstream media avoids—The Telegraph is a staid broadsheet. Thus, some of the content of this story is all the more astounding for the panic

Rep. Ronny Jackson (R-Texas), who previously served as White House physician under Barack Obama and Donald Trump, has a disturbing theory about the Omicron variant. On Saturday, Jackson suggested that Democrats will use the Omicron variant to push for universal mail-in voting for the 2022 midterm elections and save their party from an electoral bloodbath next year. “Here comes the MEV – the Midterm Election Variant!” Jackson tweeted. “They NEED a reason to push unsolicited nationwide mail-in ballots. Democrats will do anything to CHEAT during an election – but we’re not going to let them!” Reaction to the Omicron variant has been mixed. Some countries, including the United States,

The House committee investigating the January 6 Capitol riot will likely decide this week whether to refer Donald Trump's ex-chief of staff for criminal charges, Democrat Rep. Adam Schiff said on Sunday. Former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows defied a subpoena compelling him to testify before the Democrat-led panel earlier this month. 'I think we will probably make a decision this week on our course of conduct with that particular witness and maybe others,' Schiff said on CNN, referring to Meadows. 'I can't get into what communications that we're having or haven't had with particular witnesses

We reported on the announcement of a new COVID variant which they are now calling the Omicron variant. The variant was just discovered this week, but already you can hear the race to paint it in the worst light possible, suggesting that there was a lot to be concerned about because it was “heavily mutated,” that immunity and the vaccines might not protect against it. We saw the Dow take a huge plunge immediately after, likely in part because of thinking that this news could lead back to more government restrictions and problems. The Biden administration reacted in a chaotic fashion. First, Dr. Anthony Fauci said

We’ve heard of people with stinky feet taking off their shoes. We have heard of people listening to music or watching a movie without headphones. We’ve heard of people with “emotional support falcons.” But I promise you, this is a new one for us all.According to Newsweek, a woman on a recent flight between Syracuse, NY, and Atlanta, GA decided to give all of her fellow passengers a sight to see. The woman attempted to swaddle and breastfeed her cat. Yes, you read that right. Even worse is that after she was requested by flight personnel to put the cat and her breast away, she refused.From Newsweek:
