"Democratic senator and certain presidential nominee John F. Kerry, gave the middle finger to a Vietnam veteran at the Vietnam Memorial Wall on Memorial Day morning," NewsMax.com reported yesterday.
"Ted Sampley, a former Green Beret who served two full tours in Vietnam, spotted Kerry and his Secret Service detail at about 9 a.m. Monday morning at the Wall. Sampley walked up to Kerry, extended his hand and said, 'Senator, I am Ted Sampley, the head of Vietnam Veterans Against John Kerry, and I am here to escort you away from the Wall because you do not belong here.'

It looks like he's about to give his now infamous one-finger salute to the country.
Profanity and now the finger. I guess crassness is a sought after quality for the Dems.
No, I don't.
Surely with ALL the reporters around, there had to be one picture...at least one! ANYONE???
What's with the "Tour" logo? Sheesh.
This is a Presidential election, not a rock concert.
Kerry was givin him the California howdy. Just like Jethro!!!!!!!!!!! As usual, he will get a pass from the media whores.
The WashTimes is reporting it! Interesting. Big thread on this yesterday, from a NewsMax article.
NewsMax.com had this first and I was skeptical. NewsMax was right. I won't be so quick to doubt them again.
They're just reporting that NewsMax reported it. No confirmation, as I see it.
Jeez. The finger and a "Sampley is a felon!"?? Way to defend yourself, John! Way to show your impeccable class!
The only one, somehow got ketchup on it, and is useless.
Kinda like sKerry! ! ! !
we need a photo....
McCain WAS a POW... how did he allegedly offend these families?
I see Kerry is now copying Dubya's Interstate 2004 logo. What an a-hole. By the way, that star logo on Kerry's t-shirts is almost identical to the logo that is ony my daughter's Aaron Carter cd!! What a wuss!!!
Here's the thread on the NewsMax article:
Kerry 'Flips Off' Vietnam Vet (He has no shame)
McCain WAS a POW... how did he allegedly offend these families?
He's really trying to suck in the not-old-enough-to-be-smart (conservative) crowd.
Check #224 on this thread. a freeper said they heard Sampley on the radio confirming the basic facts.
Real classy John Kerry! First the effin word and now the one finger salute.....I'm baffled how anyone could want this tasteless moron in the White House!
Yes, saw that. But we really need more independent confirmation, preferably a picture. There's also a post in that thread, linking to a letter on wintersoldier.com
Here, scroll down to Tony Snesko's letter.
is that a closed fist in the air communist salute he is giving?

Ha! A little slip-up.
How dare he use one of our Military ships for a campaign prop! How come he can and Dubya can't...silly me, I can answer my own question...DOUBLE STANDARDS!
Why so baffled that people would want this classless moron in the White House? After 2 tours with x42, nothing will baffle me in regards to morals and politics.
The sad part is that this sort of behavior is actually appealing to many members of the 60's "up yours attitude" generation.
If this is how Kerry reacts to some activist, what's he going to do when Saudi Arabia's defacto ruler, Crown Prince Abdullah, tells him the Saudis are going to cut oil production?
LOL... nice lensflare. Looks like somebody at johnkerry.com recently discovered photoshop.
Didn't we try a vulgar socialist with a bad temper before?
Is that an image of Kerry calling our troops war criminals before supporting them? Or is he supporting our troops before he calls them war criminals? I can never get that straight...
By callling them liars and freaks, that's how.
Sampley was the guy who confronted Kerry and leads Vietnam Veterans against Kerry. I doubt he was "confirming" it because he was likely the individual who informed NewsMax in the first place.
The amazing thing is that during WW2, FDR accepted the nomination for his party on board a US Navy ship.
Gee, I didn't hear anything about this on CNN, so it can't possibly be true.
That is a photo of Kerry's campaign kick-off which was held at Patriot's point in Charleston, SC. The ship in the background is the USS Yorktown (CV-10) which is a museum piece. Patriot's Point is operated by a private foundation and raises money for the operation of the museum by charging admission. The Kerry Campaign had to pay for that photo-op, and I hope it was enough to keep The Point operating for a good long time.
"McCain WAS a POW... how did he allegedly offend these families?"
McCain makes it a habit of offending people.
The man has a real Freudian obsession with the "F" word, doesn't he? Maybe Thereza is frigid or he's just missing that 20-something he sent off to Africa after they were found out?
It was posted under its original link to NewsMax. But it's nice to see that Washington Times has picked it up.
These two scum-sucking maggots did everything in their power to discount all reports, sightings and PHOTOGRAPHS of our boys still being held by the commies. These pukes deep-sixed the senate 'investigation' from the get go.
Thereafter they led the effort to NORMALIZE relations with communist Vietnam. And after we normalized relations, KERRY'S B-I-L closed a multi-million dollar contract with communist Vietnam. Some coincidence, huh!
There are also 'stories' of McCainiac collaborating with the NVA to get preferential medical treatment for his wounds when captured - unlike Adm James Stockdale1 who was brutally torture while a POW almost daily.
1 - Remember Stockdale as Perot's VEEP candidate? He was derided by the MSM a loon.
John F'ing Kerry
John Finger Kerry
John Flippin Kerry
That middle initial sure does have various meanings, now doesn't it?
Rush was also talking about it yesterday on his show
Since when have liberals ever shown originality?
