NEW SWIFT AD: Did Kerry give aid and comfort to the enemy? POWs' Wives Featured in New Swift Boat Ad
Human Events Online ^ | September 29, 2004 | Human Events

Edited on 09/29/2004 8:22:24 AM PDT by Admin Moderator. [history]

This new, poignant Swift Boat ad, begins airing tomorrow. HUMAN EVENTS has obtained the 60-second ad that features brief comments by the wives of former Vietnam-era POWs, expressing their feelings about Kerry’s questionable post-war activities. According to sources near the Swift Boat organization, $1.4 million will be spent to get this most recent message out. The ad will appear nationally on cable, and on broadcast TV in Pennsylvania, New Mexico, and Nevada.

TRANSCRIPT, "Never Forget"
Mary Jane McManus: Three months after we were married, my husband was shot down over Hanoi.

Phyllis Galanti: Paul and I were married in 1963. Two years later he was shot down over North Vietnam.

MCMANUS: All of the prisoners of war in North Vietnam were tortured in order to obtain confessions of atrocities.

Galanti: On the other hand, John Kerry came home and accused all Vietnam veterans of unspeakable horrors.

McManus: John Kerry gave aide and comfort to the enemy by advocating their negotiating points to our government.

Galanti: Why is it relevant? Because John Kerry is asking us to trust him.

McManus: I will never forget John Kerry?s testimony. If we couldn?t trust John Kerry then, how could we possibly trust him now?

I got in early this time, before it gets overloaded.

Devastating stuff. Goes right for the new "security mom" demographic and slams that horsefaced jackass right between the eyes.

In addition to the devastating script, the image of that ugly gangly bastard marching along holding up the peace sign and looking every inch the repulsive traitorous hippy dirtbag he is, delivers a knockout punch.

Thank you Swift Boat Veterans!

General Giap wrote about the aid that the Anti-War morons gave the NVA after the US crushed them after Tet. In fact, the Viet Cong in the South NEVER AGAIN was able to do anything, the US crushed them so bad. Vietnam would have been a WIN except for scumbags like Hanoi John and Jane, Chronkite the Chancer Sore, VVAW, Dan Blather, and a slew of other imbeciles who will roast in Hell for eternity over their role.

No doubt about it! This ad is blockbuster! John Kerry is a traitor to these United States of America. Not only should he be soundly deafeated on November 2nd, but the entire Democrat Party should be destroyed at the ballot box this year for insulting the American voters in choosing this treason fool to run for POTUS!

Precisely. For those of you that were complaining about the last swift boat ad as you can see they are saving some of the best material for last. Furthermore, whatever else lib's say about the Swifties 527 one thing is true, it is clear that they the people behind their ad campaing are EXPERTS.

I think the Swift Boat ads have been hit-and-miss.

This one is a hit below the waterline, and Kerry's only defense--personal attacks on the people in the commercials--has been taken away from him.

I just hope that people haven't been bullied out of paying attention to the Swift Vets. I would have put fewer ads on in a different order (former POWs first, wives second, Kerry meeting with Commies third, and leave out the medals stuff).

Nice. My fav one is still the war crimes one using Kerry's voice. I would like to see them do one where his group plotted the assassination of the senators. From what I understand Kerry was at this meeting, although he said he wasn't. Although he was against the action, he can still be hit for not reporting it to authorities. Murdering a US Senator???!???

All of Soros's $63 Million and Hanoi Janes $13 Million are having a difficult time competing with the SBV ads, which at last I saw had about $4.5 Million in donations.

The more Kerry's 4 months in Vietnam and 2 years after Vietnam are revealed, the less people care for him.

McManus: John Kerry gave aide and comfort to the enemy by advocating their negotiating points to our government.

Galanti: Why is it relevant? Because John Kerry is asking us to trust him.

McManus: I will never forget John Kerry?s testimony. If we couldn?t trust John Kerry then, how could we possibly trust him now?

..more than 30 years later, the wounds inflicted by John Kerry continue to bring pain to scores of Vietnam veterans. Those wounds — from the bearing of false witness against a generation of courageous young Americans who fought and died in Vietnam — are much more serious than any wound warranting a Purple Heart. Those wounds go to the heart and soul. Those wounds never go away...

There are many who do not recall VietNam. It is important for you all to realize how sKerry deeply hurt and angered our fine military men.

I was just getting into the USAF as Vietnam was winding down.
I was personally spit on, as were many of my friends.

A buddy of mine here at Cornell had blood thrown at him, and others were assaulted by the peaceniks.

This was due to sKerry's "testimony" of lies at the "hearings" as much as anything else, though we could mention Fonda, SDS, the Communists, and others. But, sKerry gave great credibility to knee-jerk egotistical pacifist isolationists. His charges against our brave military men have not been forgotten - but the Swifties have reminded the 'Nam vets and their families EXACTLY WHO did that testimony, and many of us who remembered that testimony had forgotten who had created such lies.

The effect on the morale of our troops was devastating. The leadership of the country was devastated, too. They had already been in a defensive mode to begin with instead of an aggressive "win the war" mode - they went into a "buy our way out of it" mode. Some pointed with credibility to sKerry's lie that "we'd only have to protect 3000 S.Vietnamese who might be harmed by the NV" --- that was always complete bunk, but people WANTED to believe it. Over Three MILLION were killed after we left. sKerry was wrong there, and he lied about the rest, too. If the hearings had been more positive, it might have defused the peaceniks a bit, and we may well have gone on to make an attempt to stop micromanaging that conflict, and let our guys win the war. 

Our brave military men were demeaned for years afterward.  All of us who served from 1968 through Desert Storm were looked down on in many ways by much of American society - thank God for President Reagan who helped alleviate that somewhat - we were proud to serve with him as CINC, but it was terrible how hard he had to fight for something so eminently right and decent as the US military.

Many of the culprits have recognized they were wrong - take David Horowitz as an example, as well as many FReepers who have stated as much here.  Many have done a great deal to make amends. Many are angry at the way Walter Cronkite and the rest of the lamestream press duped them. But, sKerry is still trying to defend his indefensible actions.

Kerry's a bona fide liar. He and his VVAW buddies encouraged others to lie. He is as close to a traitor as anybody I know of.

I stated (at length in discussions) on a thread a some time ago that this is now not only a battle between the SwiftVets and the peaceniks of the 60s and 70s, but that this campaign has become a battle - a great battle - between the Old Media Fraudcasters and other mediots, and the New Media - with talk radio/ internet/ blogs.

This has become a battle to the death. Only one will be left standing. The 'Nam Vets (including me and many of my fellows in arms) are not going to be able to be silenced by the President or by the Demodogs or by the Fraudcasters. We know the truth. There is a great well of support we can draw on, and righteous anger about the way we have been treated. Many others are just as angry about how they have been misled by the Fraudcasters and the NYSlimes, et al, and they are now seeing a way to "get a bit of their own back.

WE THE PEOPLE, INCLUDING THOSE OF US AT FR, HAVE TO TAKE BACK THE NEWS MEDIA. WE CAN NOT GIVE UP, WE CANNOT GIVE IN, WE CANNOT REST UNTIL sKERRY IS CRUSHED. CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL WHO ARE CONTRIBUTING TO THIS EFFORT.

please feel free to add to this, plagiarize it, or otherwise use this rant against the traitors to our brave men.  just get it out there.

Give the VietNam Vets the Parade They Never Got

DEFEAT KERRY !!!

Kerry's campaign handlers must be suffering severe fatigue by now. You know they are filled with loathing everytime the Swift Boat vets come out with another ad. Can't you just see them?!! When I saw this new ad and thought of Kerry's campaign staff, that painting of "The Scream" comes to mind.....

Now lets see if the Kerry camp will have the nerve to call the women in the ad "lying GOP trolls?" They will have to respond and the only way they can is to attack the women and that would be a huge mistake. This ad is so devastating, hope it is shown not only in the battle ground states but all over the US.

Good analysis on the Kerry counterattack tactics of personal attacks on the people in the commercials; however, the Kerry camp is of such character that they are indeed capable of attacking those POWs' Wives.

A for "hit-and-miss" IMO, people perceive their different ads differently. I was impressed with the Ad that included the hateful metal tossing footage; after all, Kerry helped organize that event.

See all the Swift Boat Vet's ads here:

http://www2.swiftvets.com/index.php?topic=Ads

In my opinion, the "Medals" ad is the best one.
It shows Kerry's fluttering eyes, and waffling answers to Congress.
Just replaying that cut is enough to make you gag.

MIDI - JUST WHEN I NEEDED YOU MOST

(Note: you really should be listening to the MIDI when singing this...it is written to track with the particular MIDI chosen)

You came to the war zone and...joined us in battle and
A swift boat's in your command
We didn't know then you were out for yourself
And all the things you had planned

You won a few medals and for that you'd settle and
There was a record...now you could boast
Then you...had turned on us...just when it would hurt us the most
You turned on us when it would hurt us the most

Then in Senate hearings with the whole world watching you
Your brothers you had defamed
We're killers of babies and criminal scum
Of us our nation's ashamed

You won a few medals and for that you'd settle and
There was a record...now you could boast
Then you...had turned on us...just when it would hurt us the most
You turned on us when it would hurt us the most

When we came back home we thought we did our duty but
People would spit in our face
We felt that those jungles in which we had fought
Had been a friendlier place

You won a few medals and for that you'd settle and
There was a record...now you could boast
Then you...had turned on us...just when it would hurt us the most
You turned on us when it would hurt us the most

Our kids are serving now...they do it proudly and
You tell us you want to lead
We'd all walk through hell to be stopping you, John
Those words you had better heed

You won a few medals and for that you'd settle and
There was a record...now you could boast
Then you...had turned on us...just when it would hurt us the most
