Skip to comments.Vets refuse to forgive Kerry for antiwar acts

"If I got three Purple Hearts for three scratches, I'd be embarrassed," said Ted Sampley, who fought in Vietnam and publishes U.S. Veteran Dispatch. He remembers soldiers turning away awards for minor injuries.
Mr. Kerry has said none of his Purple Heart injuries, only one of which removed him from the field for two days, was critical.
After his third Purple Heart, Mr. Kerry requested and was granted permission to return to the United States to work behind a desk in New York. Even while still a Navy man, he began traveling to antiwar rallies with leading war protesters such as Adam Walinsky, a former speechwriter for Robert F. Kennedy.
Mr. Walinsky recalled that Mr. Kerry flew him around the state of New York for several Vietnam Moratorium protests in October 1969.
"He was a guy who had been in the war," he said. "We spent a lot of time talking about the campaign, the presidential campaign and the Vietnam War."
Mr. Kerry has said he did not take part in the protests, but was intrigued by Mr. Walinsky's views about the war. The two men stayed in contact and "became reasonably good friends," Mr. Walinsky said.
Others were shocked by the Naval officer's association with the antiwar movement.
"He gets this cushy job in his hometown, goes around protesting the war, then asks to get out six months early," Mr. Sampley said. "What regulations were busted when Kerry as a Naval officer and still on the payroll was flying around protesting the war? And who had to stand in and fight for John Kerry after he left six months early?"

Kerry is a traitor ang may God help us if he's elected Commander in Chief.
Yes I have the links for the assassination meetings and the FBI docs in general.
YOu want the link for the November 1971 meeting? That meeting shows that John Kerry was there and that the proposal was "NOT" voted down, but was tabled until the Feb. 1972 meeting, which was the VVAW's policy.
I have two links, one is an article that shows Kerry was still a National Leader in Feb of 1972 and the FBI link.
Just drop it...Calpernia and I have. :-)

Oh GREAT! Can you add your links here? I would appreciate it!
Here is the link for what you are looking for. The posting is not so good so you will have to copy the link fromthe list and paste it into your browser.
If you run across any information like what you posted, please send it to me.
You smarmily claimed that people needed to know what YOU know,out of the blue,when I had replied to another poster,who is an old,dear friend of mine,and we were just hacking around.
I then posted to YOU,that you should add me to your ping list.That was it;I was being POLITE And NONCONFRONTATIONAL.
And then...POW you went after me,yelling/complaining that you had once,loooooooooooooong ago put me on your ping list,but that I had told you to take me off.(bait)And I concurred,explaining that you had done so WITHOUT my permission.Which IS very bad form on FR,to do.After which,you took off...BIG TIME...baiting and flaming and even posting an obscene post that had to be removed.
You're now attempting to once again high-jack this thread,flip flopping,telling lies,alternating being "nice" and nasty about me,in your posts.
Just stop this.Nobody cares and you're only making yourself look foolish/perverse.
Great links;thanks for posting them !

"I have written and spoken and marched against the war. One of the national organizers of the Vietnam Moratorium is a close friend of mine."
The friend he's alluding to would be David Mixner, one of five key leaders of the Moratorium, the other four being Jerome Grossman (founder), Sam Brown (primary organizer), David Hawk, and Marge Sklencar.
On a related note with respect to Kerry, in early 1970 while he was running for Congress Kerry became friends and political allies with Grossman and Brown; it was at Grossman's suggestion that Kerry agreed to drop out of the 1970 Congressional campaign and support Robert Drinan instead. My next article gets into some details of this. One thing I'll note here is that the leadership of the Moratorium was interlocked with the leadership of the New Mobe (New Mobilization Committee to End the War in Vietnam), which a 1970 Congressional report found to be under communist domination. Walinsky was the most prominent leader of the New York branch of the Moratorium. In other words, by flying Walinsky around, Kerry was supporting a Communist front group while still on active duty. This is evidently why Kerry's accounts emphasize that "Mr. Kerry has said he did not take part in the protests". I guess flying one of the key speakers around isn't taking part. . .evidently as Clinton would say, it depends on the meaning of "taking part". . .
Thanks for the link on that!
