The Foundation was doing very well until early this year when they decided to cut funding to Planned Parenthood. But far-left liberals screamed long and loud, so the Foundation reversed its decision. Since then, the Foundation has been floundering financially.
The far left tries to tell us it is because people stopped supporting the Foundation because they had first decided to abandon Planned Parenthood. And it appears they have convinced Komen bigwigs of that fallacy. But the truth is actually just the opposite.
Yes, a handful of noisy, whiny liberals may have stopped donating when the decision to cut funding to PP was initially made - liberals tend to yell and complain loud enough to make it appear they are the majority (which is never the case - fewer than 1 in 5 Americans are liberals).
The real problem lies in Komen's decision to REVERSE their decision to cut funding to Planned Parenthood. Once they restored funding, a huge majority of people who had supported Komen stopped doing so. The sale of "Breast Cancer Pink" items fell sharply. Donations stopped coming in - not the ones from the few, noisy liberals, but the ones from the majority of Americans who do not believe in paying for someone else's abortions (abortion is the biggest money maker for Planned Parenthood). As an example, my wife, once an avid supporter, has paid a lot of extra bucks each year to have a pink "breast cancer" vehicle license plate, with the proceeds going to Komen. Once Komen made it public they would be supporting PP, my wife no longer pays for that special plate. Nor do we buy into anything that supports Komen.
So, Komen suffers. They, and the far left lunatics who bully anyone who opposes them would have us believe they are suffering because they had withdrawn support of PP for 3 days. That's absurd. If that were the case, the support for Komen would have been restored when they resumed funding of PP.
Make no mistake - liberals use deceit at every turn. White is black, day is night, and if they yell loud enough and tell a lie often enough, it becomes the truth.
Examples: Obama said in a recent speech that "Republicans want dirty air and dirty water." Absurd - we breathe and drink, too. And Fluke says Republicans want to roll back women's rights - again, absurd. Many Republicans are either women, or married to women, or have daughters. Obama said that "the private sector is doing fine." Nothing could be further from the truth - but then, he is not particularly affiliated with the truth.
If the Komen Foundation is truly interested in regaining their former position, they should consider that the liberals bullying them are the culprits, and not their friend. They should also remember that every study has shown liberals rarely make contributions to any charity with their own money (they prefer to take mine, in taxes, and give THAT away to Planned Parenthood). So, if they want donations to flow, maybe they should cater more to those who actually do contribute to charity - conservatives.
