This is a political website. The leftists make false claims about conservatives. They're embodied in the claim that conservatives support starving children. Liberals and the left use other people's money and call it charity. Conservatives use their own.
The "we" here is conservatives. No one in particular is bragging about, or even mentioning their charitable activities. The theme is charity vs forced redistribution scheme, and this study is part of the fight between those 2 activities. Those promoting forced redistribution say that conservatives are not charitable. This study shows they, the leftists are mistaken, or lying.
Valid points. thanks. Maybe I was looking too much into it.
