Skip to comments.Left Wing Indoctrination for Iraq/Afghanistan Vets, (what AARP is to seniors, IAVA is to veterans)

An insidious, treacherous, anti-military, anti-democracy and anti-capitalist organization called Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America, IAVA, is posing as a veterans aid and support group in an attempt to turn the last non-Leftist bastion of America into the Lefts mightiest arm of real force.
They are dedicated to one mission, and one mission only: indoctrinate the average service member into a Leftist ideologue loyal to George Soros and Obamas neo-Marxist revolution. Go to this link and scroll down to the bottom, and you will see the IAVAs report card on politicians performance as supporters of the troops. John McCain is given a D, Barack Obama a B.
George Soros is a financier of the IAVA. ( From Blackfive: But Burden says what really bothers him about IAVAs report card is its insistence that its grades are nonpartisan. He points to IAVAs funding: Jonathan Soros, son of liberal financier George Soros, is sponsoring the groups annual dinner next month. At the same time, the IAVA uses technology provided by Democracy in Action, a self-described progressive nonprofit that provides discount services to liberal groups. And, Burden points out, Rieckhoff once delivered the Democratic response to one of President Bushs radio addresses.) They used to operate under the moniker Operation Truth before they came up with the less radical sounding IAVA. Blackfive did an expose on Operation Truth.
The IAVA, led by Paul Rieckhoff, claims to operate as as a non-partisan group, but as you can tell by both the report card linked above, and the fact that Rieckhoff blogs exclusively for the Huffington Post as the face of the IAVA, they are anything but. You can put the fact that Rieckhoff makes such a bluster about his alleged firecely non-partisan stance into the Me thinks thou do protest too much file.
Anyone who operates behind such a curtain of blatant deception is a coward, a predator, and fits the vernacular appellation of weasel. Dont presume that the term traitor hasnt come to my mind, either.
Predatory IAVA commercial:
Thanks Samsmom!...I hear radio spots all the time for Iran/Iraq vets...from now on I’ll start paying closer attention to who sponsors them....and BTW this approach from the Left started with the Vietnam anti war movement...soon they had vets portrayed as dangerous mad dogs.
Yes, I was suspicious of the organization the moment I heard their radio spots.
One of the earlier ones had a kid’s voice saying ‘Daddy, did you have to kill anybody?’
they’re using the old VN-era leftist slant that combat turns people anti-social, they become isolated and depressed and they brood on all the people they ‘had’ to kill..
I knew it was a scam the minute I heard the ads.
I will never forget how WE were treated when WE came home!
