Several weeks ago from the time this was written, The Yankee Marshal started having a semi coherent meltdown against Iraq Veteran 8888 one Youtube where he accused Iraq Veteran of taking money from the NRA to promote them and posting paid promotions for guns without disclosing that. I could have missed other videos where Yankee Marshal talks more about this because he didn’t have much of an argument, or there’s just no reason to think that those accusations are true. I don’t know if Iraq Veteran is being paid to promote the NRA, but if he is I hope he has disclosed this in a way that it can be easily found.
I like both channels and I don’t have a side that I want to pick, and it seems like Yankee Marshal has just been a total prick. I’m not going to let Iraq Veteran off easy though. He made a video after the accusations where he was rightfully angry at the accusations and I’m very sympathetic to whatever he went through on social media because of it. From what I saw, I don’t think Yankee Marshal is out on a warpath to bring down Iraq Veteran, which is good. I don’t know if any accusations are true and I’m assuming they aren’t. However, in that video Iraq Veteran said that he has never told anyone to join the NRA, which is not true. I’ve seen plenty of his videos where he encouraged it. His reason is that the NRA is our largest voice and so we should support them even though they’re run by scumbags. My position on the NRA has changed since they sold out their members with the bump stock bill. I only have a minor sticking point with Iraq Veteran and Yankee Marshal’s actions were unacceptable.
I will continue to watch both channels, assuming that Yankee Marshal doesn’t decide to go out in a blaze of glory on some foolish Internet warpath.
