The Sheen’s, Lohan’s, Oscar’s Style’s vs The Fallen Soldiers’

(11 am. – promoted by ek hornbeck)

I’m not going to add anything except this to what I’m posting below, we’ve got a decade plus of living the reality while also no mention of the Country demanding ‘Sacrifice’ for what they readily support,

The Country doesn’t even understand the damage they’ve created with the actions of these two now long running occupations and the hate rhetoric towards others, as a group, that still continues!

Viral post pits coverage of Sheen, fallen soldiers


March 10th, 2011 – It started with a Facebook status update. Upset at the media’s coverage of Charlie Sheen, someone took up for American soldiers dying in Afghanistan.

“Charlie Sheen is all over the news because he’s a celebrity drug addict,” it said, “while Andrew Wilfahrt 31, Brian Tabada 21, Rudolph Hizon 22, Chauncy Mays 25, are soldiers who gave their lives this week with no media mention. Please honor them by posting this as your status for a little while.”

The status update has since gone viral, shared by tens of thousands on Facebook. An abbreviated version is on Twitter.

When a friend of mine posted the message on her Facebook page, it was a sobering reminder of the news media’s failings of covering the Afghanistan war. I kept returning to the names of the four soldiers. Who were these men? What’s their story?

I started by calling the father of Cpl. Andrew Wilfahrt (pronounced WILL-fort) in Rosemount, Minnesota.

“I think it’s spot on,” Jeff Wilfahrt said of the viral post. {continued}

Fallen Soldiers Honored After Viral Facebook Status


March 10, 2011 – Just yesterday I posted this status on my facebook: Charlie Sheen 47, is all over the news because he’s a Celebrity drug addict. While Andrew Wilfahrt 31, Brian Tabada 21, Rudolph Hizon 22, Chauncy May 25, are Soldiers who gave their lives this week with no national media mention. Please Honor them by posting this as your status for a little while. May they rest in peace.

I remember that here was a similar post with different fallen soldiers and Lindsay Lohan but I did not see any response over those posts but this time it was different. CNN and other news blogs took notice as the status went all over facebook and other social media platforms such as Twitter (in a slightly shorter version of course).

The tweeting and facebook paid off and 4 fallen soldiers were honored. Andrew Wilfahrt, Brian Tabada, Rudolph Hizon and Chauncy May gave their lives for this country and should be highly honored for their bravery. {continued}

Focus on news that affects us, not Charlie Sheen


March 11, 2011 – It took a Facebook status to reveal that the national media has been heavily disproportionate in covering Charlie Sheen’s recent debacles rather than the death of our soldiers in Afghanistan.

“Charlie Sheen is all over the news because he’s a celebrity drug addict,” it said, “while Andrew Wilfahrt, 31, Brian Tabada, 21, Rudolph Hizon, 22, Chauncy Mays, 25, are soldiers who gave their lives this week with no media mention. Please honor them by posting this as your status for a little while.”

The status update has since gone viral, shared by tens of thousands on Facebook. An abbreviated version is on Twitter.

Since February 26, when the Sheen story began dominating headlines, at least 13 U.S. troops have died in support of the Afghanistan war.  {continued}

    This is how we treat a lower rank soldier suspect, as the leaders walk free with no worries, apparently, as to accountability of what they did In Our Names while they live in style with their blood wealth reaped!!

    Private Bradley Manning


    10 March 2011- Pfc. Bradley E. Manning, the Army intelligence analyst accused of leaking classified government documents to WikiLeaks, has been held at the naval brig in Quantico, Virginia since last summer under “prevention of injury watch.” Last weekend, the conditions of his confinement changed. Manning was stripped of his clothing at night, a move his attorney called “degrading treatment” that is “inexcusable and without justification.” Quantico officials say that Private Manning is not being abused. His supporters contend he is being pressured to cooperate with prosecutors.

    In his first media appearance, Brian Manning, Private Manning’s father, speaks out for the first time. It’s a PBS FRONTLINE exclusive interview with correspondent Martin Smith.

    COMING March 29th, on-air and online: FRONTLINE’s profile of Pfc. Bradley Manning.
