Posted on 08/08/2004 11:44:55 AM PDT by Merry
The Democrat National Committee has prepared a full-scale assault against the Vietnam Veterans for Truth to draw their character and veracity into question, according to one anonymous source inside the DNC. The campaign of character assassination is scheduled to coincide with the release of the book Unfit for Command which reveals inconvenient facts for the Kerry campaign.
We have prepared what we call Brown Books that contain damaging military records, personal credit histories, medical histories, psychiatric histories, divorce records, you name it, our source told us. The Brown Books are so-called because of their distinctive plain brown covers, which contain no words. Some books have already been delivered to Kerry-friendly reporters. Others are on their way, our source told us. When asked if we could have a copy, our source declined, saying there is a limited number of Brown Books and they have been carefully inventoried to control in whose hands the books ended up.
Ultimately the Brown Books will end up in the hands of pro-Kerry news agencies and reporters. According to our source, who demanded to remain anonymous for fear of retribution, The New York Times is already on the hook to run a negative series on the Vets, as is the Boston Globe, which is owned by the Times. (Editors Note: The Globe has already been caught attempting to attack the veracity of George Elliott, Kerrys commanding officer in Vietnam.)
In addition, the DNC has deployed a six member team from their press shop whose sole responsibility will be to spin and counter-spin stories about the members of Vietnam Veterans for Truth with pro-Kerry media entities, like the Times.
When asked if this was just another example of John Kerry slandering Vietnam Vets like he did in 1971 as a member of the Vietnam Veterans Against the War our source snapped, No! This is warfare. The only way were going to get out of this is to force everyone to question their motives and credibility.
If they want to spread rumors and stories about John Kerry, well spread rumors and stories about them. And some of the things they did in Vietnam were a lot worse than what they say John Kerry did, our source concluded ominously.
Stay tuned. We will keep you posted as this nasty story develops. Posted on Sunday, August 08 @ 14:36:36 EDT by admin
Nuts & Sluts -- typical DNC tactics
God I hope so. I sent my $25 to the swift boat vets this morning. If the media keeps pissing me off, I'll keep sending money.
How? Forgive me, but sounding off on FR is, to coin a cliche that happens to fit, preaching to the choir.What else can we do? Writing your congressperson(s) is an exercise in futility IMO. Perhaps you and others have something else in mind.I'm eager to hear it.
On Friday, as I was writing the Swift Vets a check for $100 my 22 year old son handed me $50 and asked me to increase the check to $150.
Do we want to be party to bashing vets, even Kerry suppporters, when some of them may be real heroes?
All Kerry has to do is release his records. THIS IS HIS RESPONSE???? Oh boy.
Wish I could afford to do the same. That apparently is the most effective way to help.Pro bono legal help would also be very valuable to the Swifties.
Rotten dims attack plan ping.
Shouldn't that read: We have prepared what we call Brown Shirt Books???
Costing the DNC/Soros? The people manning this are probably doing it for free, such is their hatred and fear. We could do the same to them.
John Kerry : "war hero" or a "war criminal"
Answer the question Kerry!
Did you lie about your "heroics" or the "war crimes"?
Can't have it both ways!
RELASE ALL YOUR MILITARY RECORDS BEFORE NOV 2nd!
Unless you are hiding something?
If the dems actually pull this crap, I think they will be administering the "coup de gras" to themselves...nothing like shooting yourself in the foot, this time they are aiming for their own head...they are attacking the messengers not the message...Kerry needs to release his records..if he won't and this happens there will likely be a lawsuit and the records will be subpoened in discovery...I don't know if Kerry could stop their release on privacy grounds if the DNC is sued...it will be interesting....
Damn skippy. I want Teresa's tax records and Kerry's war records.
What are they hiding??
If the Dems try a stunt like this it will backfire on them.
Copy the articles you see here on FR, ALONG WITH THE LINK, and use your email address book!
Send the stuff out, ask everyone to do the same...it's amazing how many "non-political" folk end up hearing this stuff and taking action.
The big question is will Mccain come out to defend the Swiftboat veterans when this DNC smear campaign comes out.
This is great - Kerry's FOUR MONTHS in Vietnam being used as a major plank for potus? Hahahaha. All the Swift Boat Truth vets need to do is cast doubt on Kerry, basically just talk trash, appear on tv, and then get in on the book tour. Hey Dem's, you like dirty politics (Moore, Garafolo, Hollywood, Whoopi, Franken, et al)? Right back atcha. Awesome that Bush has distanced himself from this brutal fight. Getting into a boat with Kerry is like getting into a car driving over a bridge with Teddy K. - just don't do it.
