Note: I found this gem on the Winter Soldier site. This is staggering. The comment came just before the fateful meeting of Nov. 12-15, 1971 in Kansas City where the upper echelon of the VVAW discussed and voted on whether to assassinate seven U.S. Senators.
August 13, 2004 -- Found in the VVAW FBI Files on page 251 of Section 10.PDF:
From the Sunday Oklahoman, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, November 7, 1971 by Bryce Patterson
The political power structure within the United States can and must change if the nation is to avoid violent efforts to seize power. John F. Kerry, a member of the executive committee of the Vietnam Veterans Against the War, said in Oklahoma City Saturday.
Meeting with reporters before speaking at the University of Oklahoma, Kerry said, "If it (the government) doesn't change we are asking for trouble. If it is not done, those who are talking about seizing it will have every right to go after it."
Kerry emphasized that he and those he represents are totally opposed to any such violence.
Come now, you know "youthful indiscretions" are to be forgiven. Unless, of course, a Republican candidate makes them.
As far as I'm concerned, the fact that he was even part of a group that considered assasination as a means of change is enough to exclude him from a canidacy.
Yes, Kerry gets a pass on this, and every other treasonous act he has committed, from the leftist media. What else is new? And if it had been a Conservative that said this, it would have been front page headlines for two months.
A FINE Presidential candidate. The poster-boy of the radical left.
It looks like they've come close to seizing it too. I really wish some people in the spotlight would start emphasizing that the Republican party has merged with the Democrat party and is still labeled Republican (i.e. all of the south) -- the Democrat party has been overrun by European socialism. If this were Democrats/Republicans vs Socialists I think these Americans in the middle would wake up.
Anarchy...just another family value.
This country, with its institutions, belongs to the people who inhabit it. Whenever they shall grow weary of the existing government, they can exercise their constitutional right of amending it, or exercise their revolutionary right to overthrow it. -- Abraham Lincoln
sKerry - born 12/11/43. In '71 he would have been 28 - that is not 'youthful', that is 'responsible'.
It is for the GOP....The Dims march to a different drummer....
ping - Kerry comment
"I'm an internationalist. I'd like to see our troops dispersed through the world only at the directive of the United Nations," and that he wants "to almost eliminate CIA activity." -John Kerry, to Boston Globe
Kerry has been undermining this country for decades.
This article is a must read: Kerry's Disloyal Nicaraguan Journey. What Kerry did in Vietnam, he did in Nicaragua, and he is trying to do in Iraq.
Visit my John F. Kerry Timeline.
Thanks for that timeline.
30 year old DUI charges are much more significant as far as subversion and treason go.
He's for over throwing the government and killing out leaders???
