Skip to comments.Junior Dems going after FreeRepublic and Swift Boat Veterans
Posted on 08/06/2004 8:30:22 PM PDT by lonewacko_dot_com
FReeper and co-author of 'Unfit for Command' Jerome R. Corsi, PhD is being attacked on WashingtonMonthly and MediaMatters.
LUNATICS?....A few misguided souls took issue with my cavalier dismissal of Swift Boat Veterans for Truth as "certifiable lunatics" yesterday. If you're one of them, I have two words for you: click here.
It turns out I was being too kind....
That leads to this MediaMatters page:
While much has been written about the identity and history of John E. O'Neill -- one of the authors of the forthcoming Regnery book Unfit for Command: Swift Boat Veterans Speak Out Against John Kerry (whose links in the GOP go back to his days as "protégé of Nixon-era dirty trickster Charles Colson") -- little has been said about his co-author, Jerome R. Corsi, PhD.
That's followed by a list of his posts on FR, with links. The only one I looked at was taken out of context.
And, they even go into his pet names for our favorite celebrities, such as "Little Katie Communist". And?

Also, note that Media Matters employs Duncan B. Black, who is better known as Atrios of atrios.blogspot.com
A Usenet posting I saw with the same information as the Media Matters page identified it as having come from Daily Kos, which may or may not be accurate. Kos is the blogger who said "fuck 'em" regarding the four contractors who were killed in Iraq a couple months ago.
Regardless of who is or is not a looney, this whole issue would go away for Kerry if he would RELEASE ALL OF HIS MILITARY AND MEDICAL RECORDS.
While he's at it, Teresa's tax returns would clear up a lot of things.
I guess they want all records opened, then, so we can see who's telling the truth and who is lying, aye? Seeing that all the Vets concerned are equally qualified for the presidency, according to Kerry's rules, let us find out who's the most qualified.
Release all Kerry's military records (like the honorable President Bush freely released his).
John Kerry is either a "war hero" or a "war criminal"
Can't have it both ways.
John Kerry and War Crimes in Vietnam
(He was in command of a Swift Boat
and ordered his men to do these things.
Listen to this 1971 audio clip
LONG BEFORE THE '04 Election)
Liberal Washingtom Monthly blog also has some defenders of Corsi and of SwiftVets. -- Many supporters and opponents use colorful or coarse language on blogs. All should reign in bile, and speak well as they would before their mother.
So, did anybody see anything that Corsi said that wasn't true?
This is weak stuff for consumption of lefties and talking head journalists. They are trying to dissuade talking head journalists from touching any of this stuff. It could work. However, if the vets get more of a forum for telling their story besides the sound bites in the ad then it will be powerful, powerful stuff. This attack-the-messenger stuff will not work effectively against multiple eye-witnesses if they get a chance to get their story out. The sliver doctor's story is good stuff.
What a punk.
Ben Stein's ready to field for the swiftvets, too. He's more respected than many realize.
The Bonny Fwank in trousers-Anne-Lewis-led John Kerry Campaign has pulled a Monica Lewinski on US and just about all of US -- just as we did when the same manifestation-of-evil machine "leaked" Lewinski -- have fallen for it.
Here we are froth-and-foam-flecked fuming about a Birnam Wood charade that Kerry carefully staged and shot thirty-five years ago on location in South East Asia and meanwhile the candidate's intervening thirty-five years whose only connecting thread has been his consistent and persistent aid and comfort to our nation's enemies and which have included the Hanoi-John treasons, the failed congressional run and lieutenant-governorship and years and years of effectively-failed senate membership.
I love the Swift-Boat Men and all they stand for but by focusing on them we are validating Kerry's claim that his thirty-five years ago sixteen weeks on location in Vietnam qualifies yet another "DemocRAT" less-than-a-man who has never had a job or met a payroll to be president of the United States of America? To achieve Dunsinane?
We want that Birnam Wood comes to Dunsinane?
Lets please move on to the other thity-five years.
The Sat morning fox money shows have devolved into political shows (kinda wget tired of broker dudes aruing about politics). I sure hope Stein is on as he will come to their defense. Not sure about any of the others include Forbes himself. For the most part, conservative media people are scared to death of this.
