What happens when an edgy YouTube channel hosts a stream that collects $26,000 to donate to St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital to save the lives of children with cancer?
Well, the Wall Street Journal publishes a hit piece to shame them into rejecting the money that could save hundreds of lives.
When political correctness costs lives
Here is the article that the Wall Street Journal published that got St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital to reject $26k.
They pressured the hospital to reject the charitable donation from Ethan Ralph's channel (which I hadn't heard of before this incident but was apparently removed because of this hit-piece) because they didn't like the content of the particular live-street in which this massive amount of money to help children with cancer was raised.
They claim all sorts of "hate speech" reasons as why they decided to go after this money, but the reality is that these kids who would've gotten help the desperately needed because of this live-stream are NOT GOING TO because the Wall Street Journal pressured St. Jude's to reject the money for politically correct reasons.
In my opinion, this is the essence of evil.
If the money to save my child's life comes from holocaust-deniers or racists - I simply don't care. I will thank them for helping my child to survive, and I'm sure that so many parents of children with cancer at St. Jude's would agree with me.
The Wall Street Journal put political pressure on a cancer research hospital to reject a substantial amount of charitable donations because they didn't like the nature of the content of the stream in which the money was raised.
This, to me, is evil.
Tell me what you think.
