(EDIT) Well this video and this article are certainly revealing. I’d say the lies were not totally addressed in Cory’s recent apology. I hope Cory sees this and addresses these posts. I’m not going to jump to conclusions about whether these are legit posts or not, as we all know the internet is a cruel place. All I can say is that I am disappointed that I feel like I tried to take the high road in this case, and I am having to eat my own words. I don’t think that what I said in the article earlier applies to the extent that his apology was not enough. Time to come clean on it all Cory. (EDIT)
When this whole thing came to my attention I felt like I had to respond, and report what was going on because these are serious accusations, and I had recommended Cory’s channel in the past. I felt like I was fair to both Cory and the experiences that I and other people that I have talked to have had in my first post. I texted Cory and I think he felt I wasn’t being fair. So I am posting this today to hopefully rectify that feeling and make some things clear. Cory responded recently in a video that I have linked here.
I think that Cory responded with class. “Has there been times when I misrepresented myself in anger or frustration? Yes” -Cory Jackson
I think that Cory has made it clear he has made mistakes and has apologized for them. At this point I think that Cory has done the honorable thing. I myself have had to defend my claims to being a veteran, even with the overwhelming evidence I have posted online, so I understand the frustration that Cory has had to deal with. What I think is unacceptable is the response to this whole situation by several people who have no actual dog in this fight. Lots of people have been making claims who don’t know, or who have never talked to Cory. There have been threats made against Cory, and his family as well, that are ridiculous, unacceptable, and downright criminal.
I know I have made mistakes in my past as well. At this point all I can say is I support the honorable actions of Cory and his apology for any misrepresentations he might have made. Most people would have been bitches and lied or denied everything. Long story short, lets move on and find something that is worth being pissed about, and be happy we have a man like Cory on the side of freedom and liberty.
