View Full Version : Move America Forward needs our suport

Received this email from MAF over the weekend and thought it to important not to share with you all and to ask for your support.

Hello Karl,
this is Catherine Moy - Executive Director of Move America

During the past few days I had the honor to work with the veterans and
military mom who are featured in our new ad that battles back against
the Berkeley City Council.

Our ad is already having a tremendous effect. In the first 24 hours
the ad was posted online it received 5 Honors from YouTube. It was
highlighted as one of the most blogged about video clips by Google Videos.
And the news story on the ad is the 2nd most-watched video on the NBC
affiliate in San Francisco.

Please continue to share the link to the video with others:

Next week we take this message over the airwaves - reaching millions of
people. The young Marine, Eamon Kelly, the stout Army veteran, John
Bringuel, and Marine Mom, Deborah Johns, have all asked me how much of
an impact I thought this ad campaign will make.

I told them the truth: "I don't know."

It all depends on how much we can get this ad seen - not just in
Berkeley - but more importantly across the nation. We're drawing a line in
the sand, to let it be known that not only will we not allow Berkeley to
attack and dishonor our troops, but that we will not allow ANY city in
America to act this way.

This is a huge moment in American history. With a new Commander in
Chief coming to power soon, and with the debate over the war on terror
taking on a new tone, we cannot
"lose" this chapter of the battle to the anti-military folks who occupy
the ranks of the "Blame America First" crowd.

I looked our veterans and military families in the eye this week and
promised them that I would do everything I could to make sure this new TV
ad is seen by every American.

Please, help me make this a reality. I need for every person reading
this email to make a donation to our ad campaign, even if you've already
made one already.

If you've already contributed - please just donate $5 or $10 more.

If you haven't yet contributed then please give the most generous
amount you can conceivably afford. I need about 100 people who will
contribute $200 or more. Will you please - please - be one of those people?

We need you to contribute online here:

Or you can contribute via PayPal here:

We will not give up this fight - but if we are to win it, we'll need
some ammo, and that means money to get our message heard.

I really am counting on all of you to do whatever you can to help.

Tomorrow is a big day - a day we begin to truly fight back against those who have declared war on our troops.
We're not going to sit back and do nothing while radical leftists attack our troops and military recruiters. However, we have $37,900 we have to raise THIS WEEK to reach our funding requirements for our new TV ad campaign. You can make your contribution online - CLICK HERE (https://www.completecampaigns.com/FR/contribute.asp?campaignid=Move).

If you need to understand why your donations are so important, may we start off by providing to you this sampling of photos from recent attacks against recruiters as part of Code Pink's "counter-recruitment" campaign:

These pictures are scenes from attacks on military recruiting centers all across the United States - from New York to Los Angeles to Washington, D.C. to Milwaukee and Minneapolis, and of course the most recent attacks in Berkeley, California.
We've got to fight back and we've got to win the war for hearts and minds in this nation. We're making the battle in Berkeley ground zero in this fight, so we can send a message to cities all across America: don't you dare think of having any American governmental body dishonor our troops. If you do, you'll have all of us to deal with.
Please - do your part to help us raise the $37,900 we need THIS WEEK - to make our launch of this pro-troop pushback ad campaign a success.
