Stolen valor

Bruh…

As it usually is, stolen valor successfully swept under the rug and it’s business as usual with this girl.  Who knew that if you spent 88 days in boot camp you couldn’t call yourself a marine? *sarcasm*  Anyway, as expected she only took an L briefly for that and now is back promoting brands and making videos and appearing with celebrities etc.. EVEN NEW SHOOTING RELATED SPONSORS (Including BCM, 5.11, Bladetech etc.. according to the printing on her competition shooting jersey… isn’t BCM veteran run?). We even plainly see a Taran Tactical logo on a few spots on the jersey. If you remember, Taran Tactical dropped her publicly on Instagram when this whole debacle first surfaced. I shit you not… Just browse her Instagram.  Judging by the comments, people might not know her past… but there’s also the fact that because of her looks guys white knight the shit out of her hoping she might come within a 21mi radius of their wiener, touch their shoulder, or sign a cheeto for them someday. There is a good rundown of all the shenanigans with video and screenshots etc. on this Military Phonies blog post if you’re looking to burn the clock up at work this Monday.

Does this come as a surprise to anyone though?  It doesn’t to me… oh and in case you’re wondering why I’m beating a dead horse, I forgot about this waste of O2 until someone by the name of Neil Jackson left a comment on a past Amy Jane stolen valor post today with this gem:  Amy Jane lies about being stunt double on NBC’s new show ‘Blindspot’.   Damn it just gets better and better with this one. She is 100% her own worst enemy.

Stolen-ValorAnyone have any other inspirational stolen valor stories to share?  The youth need to know that they too can steal valor to use as a pedestal to become successful. *smfh*.  The worst thing about this all, is that with her obvious work ethic she likely could be just as successful (if not more successful), have zero guilt, and have everyone on earth love her without all the lying. I’m sure there’s a perfectly reasonably explanation for her lying about being a stunt double on Blindspot too… like come on guys, she probably didn’t know she had to actually be on the show, and know the person she was doubling for! Give her a break jeeze. MFers just want to pile on and beat her down at ever little miss step now. *smh*

Thoughts? Not even Sahara Desert level thirst would make me want to have anything to do with this girl, nor would I touch her with a 10ft pole someone else loaned me.

P.S. – Vuurwapen Blog had a great post on Why You Shouldn’t Support Military Fakers In The Gun Industry, which you should check out.

Spoiler alert: Cory07ink doesn’t make an appearance.

Stolen-ValorIn the realm of stolen valor when you call a person out you have yell “STOLEN VALOR” and tell them “it’s a federal offense” apparently.  Cool story bros… the government has prosecuted precisely zero people so far (to the best of my knowledge).  I think this is incredibly shitty, especially in the cases where people are profiting off it by misleading customers.  Some of those people in the video are obviously pathological liars, or mentally handicapped.  Does it really matter if they want to pretend to be something they are not?  I’d hazard a guess that most of these guys are also so dumb that even if they did beaten up by veterans, they would just be back to faking it again the next day anyway… but likely with even more sympathy from the public because of injuries they sustained as an 11B in the sandbox.

Thoughts?  Any of you guys have a stolen valor story of your own?

So what does that mean?!  New videos coming soon of course:

I’ve come to learn that in 2014 apparently stolen valor isn’t that big of a deal to most people.  I knew of the term “stolen valor” for a while, and heard of some cases in the past but never really had semi-direct experience with it until the whole Cory07Ink debacle.  You can read about it at the link, but he mis-represented himself as prior military.  It’s documented in videos and if you follow the link above his own girlfriend (Erika) asks him the direct question and he answers “yes”, so there’s no disputing that at all.  I don’t come from a military family, and haven’t lost anyone in a conflict so I’m about as far removed as you can get from someone that should be offended by another making a false “prior service” claim.  For me, I just find it very interesting / disappointing from a personal integrity standpoint.  If you’ve fought for the country, and/or even lost family or friends who have… do you care or not care whether someone falsely represents themselves as one of those who did indeed serve?

Cory-And-Erica-Punching-Bag-Glock-BeatingAnother recent case of this that came across my desk yesterday, was when someone tagged me on Instagram in a picture of some girl named “Amy Jane”.  I didn’t recognize the name at first, but after googling her, I instantly remembered her from some vids she did with shooter Taran Butler.  Anyway, it turns out she was discharged after 88 days in bootcamp and yet she has been calling herself a Marine for years. Sure SOME people are pissed for obvious reasons, and because it appears to have landed her some pretty sweet jobs within the industry and even on TV… but there is also a huge outpouring of support for her on Facebook (negative comments obviously blocked).  I’m really scratching my head at the positive part of the reaction after reading the details on that one too.  Yea she’s smoking hot, so that probably has at least something to do with it.  I still give her a 0/10 though, would not operate with.

Thoughts? Would operate with Cory & Erika or Amy Jane?

This tool. Derp:

Stolen-Valor-memeThere are few things lower than stolen valor.  It’s even more irritating when these idiots don’t even do proper research like in the video. *smh*

It’s too bad there are laws that would get people in hot water, for making douchebags like this drive home naked (at the very minimum).

As a 102nd Chairborne Ranger keyboard black ops veteran, I take people who pretend they are bloggers VERY seriously.

Thoughts?

It’s Stolen And I Know It:

Valor theft is one of the most vile forms of douchebaggery.  This song and video are perfect in every way.
