Kerry's war (...on Swifties!!!)
Townhall.com ^ | 30 June 2006 | Emmett Tyrrell

Posted on 06/29/2006 5:53:22 PM PDT by Aussie Dasher

WASHINGTON -- The comic career of Senator Jean-Francois Kerry is picking up steam, or gas, as the case may be. This inveterate windbag is, according to the New York Times, reopening the Swift Boat controversy of 2004 that did such damage to his presidential prospects when hundreds of the Vietnam War veterans who served with him deflated his reckless boasts of military gloire. He has undertaken this quixotic mission claiming that he can repristinate his military record despite the Swifties' evidence against it. Then the delusory senator from Massachusetts seems to think he will be a shoo-in for the presidency in 2008.

Well, I for one shall delight in reviewing the Swifties' corpus delicti once again. There are his Purple Hearts that his officers deny authorizing. There are the missing medical records needed to substantiate his decorations. There are the questions the Swifties raised about his honorable discharge, a mysterious discharge not issued until several years after he was out of the Navy and then only issued by President Jimmy Carter in the midst of his amnesty program for draft dodgers. And there is all the controversy about young Kerry's dealings with the North Vietnamese in Paris while the war was going on and he was still in the service. Doubtless there are more indelicacies to be examined. Frankly I doubt the American electorate will gain any higher opinion of a presidential candidate who in 1971 appeared before Congress to claim that American soldiers "raped, cut off ears, cut off heads" and otherwise mistreated the Vietnamese.

Kerry's statement is long and lurid, and the Swifties gladly reproduced a tape of it during the 2004 election. Now these veterans are being harassed by the senator's supporters with crank calls in the night and venomous postings on the liberal website HuffingtonPost.com. On that celebrity-ridden site the names and personal information of more than a dozen Swift Boat veterans were posted by such "trusted" Huffington Post celebrities as "SatanLivesinUSA." Could this be Barbra Streisand's username? At any rate, this eminence wrote on June 24: "SwiftBoatVets who need some Black Ops done on them. I have some very good ideas I gleaned from 'CIA BOOK of DIRTY TRICKS' Don't get mad, get EVEN." Minutes later another "trusted" celebrity poster repeatedly pasted these threatening words on the page and on another Huffington Post post.

The American Spectator's indefatigable reporter, Dave Holman, found all this and reports that "Aside from one or two complaints, fellow commenters did not object to the posting of the information or the threats." Within hours the veterans were receiving threatening calls. In the early hours of June 25 one Swiftie, Van Odell, got three in four minutes, the last from a man who inquired, "I want to know why you lied about John Kerry … Traitors must die. We will get you." Holman notes that the Swifties have reported these calls to law enforcement but that they had no luck in getting HuffingtonPost to address the harassment. The comments remained posted until Holman reached Katharine Zaleski, the site's news editor, on Tuesday afternoon at her unlisted telephone number. As I say, Holman is indefatigable.

This sort of harassment is not new to the veterans, and it will probably continue. At least one other site still posts their telephone numbers. Yet, as one Swiftie told me, "These men will not be intimidated. The SwiftVets are three hundred strong. They include Kerry's entire chain of command while in Vietnam, the vast majority of officers who served with him, the attending physician to his alleged wounds, and his longest serving crew member. They have raised legitimate questions." This Swiftie concludes that the questions can be answered if Sen. Kerry allows "a release of his military record by the execution of the Form 180, permitting the media to look closely at the truth behind Kerry's fiction." The fact that Kerry has not allowed these records to be opened to the general media is suspicious, no? The fact that he continues to make his military record an issue is still more evidence that a delusional man can be a funny man.

The Dems have done a classic Clinton on the Swift Boat guys.

By focusing on the Purple Heart issue, they've pulled the discussion away from JFKerry's anti-war activism (as you'll recall, Clinton focused on his draft dodging to pull attention away from Jennifer Flowers).

The MSM followed suite, and most Americans who haven't read the book think that the Swift guys simply attack the battle records. Of course, those of us who read the book (which obviously didn't include Chris Matthews on the absolutely last time I'll ever watch MS-NBC) know that the real damaging stuff is the anti-war activism.

I don't see why he persists, unless the poor schmuck really thinks the Dems will ride a proven loser in 2008. The comment "seared in my memory" with respect to a Nixon administration that hadn't taken office yet sending him on a covert (and hence undocumented) secret mission to Cambodia during the Christmas of 1968 is so blatantly in error that one suspects its source might be in the comic books. It may well be that he has told that lie so often he truly believes it himself, but then Kerry has told a lot of lies about Vietnam with a straight face for a lot of years.

Are you serious?

He persists, because the SOB is BROKE. Unless he wins the Presidency, in order to live the lifestyle he wants, he has to keep poking Teresa, instead of some young, hot and stupid Democrat groupie.

Can you imagine a worse fate then having to go to that hag for cash? Maybe the only thing worse is what he has to keep doing to get it? John Kerry could not live on a Senator's salary. He wants the millions that Clinton got after he became President. That way, he can leave the witch alone like Slick did, and go boink groupies in between windsurfing.

You're mostly right. There's a weird psycho-sexual dynamic going on. He's dependent on her wealth. He vacations at her 5 houses in ski resorts, Cape Cod etc. He would love to be rich enough to pull in the younger babes. Matter of fact he was a swordsman pre-Teresa. Being a US Senator can get you far with the opposite sex.

Howie Carr is a Boston Herald columnist. He wrote all the time about Kerry's pursuit of tail. Pre-Teresa

INDEED!

And, they have absolutely no right to tarnish, malign and abuse a normally innocent and decent phrase like:

"quixotic mission."

I realize it's technically accurate given his futile, delusional, Marxist, Machiavellian, global tyranny absurdities.

However, I doubt there's a truly selfless, kind, chivalrous bone or thought in his derranged, robotic body.

HARUMPH!

He really is delusional.

But aren't all the MSM? Satan and his crew seem to think it's nothing to trot out delusional absurditites and pontificate them loudly enough and often enough that the sheeple treat them as Gospel Truth.

Sigh.

Alice's rabbit hole is beginning to look ordered and sane compared to such 'realities.'

You don't have to read Unfit to see how kerry slanders and libels the military. Just watch in real time as he trashes our boys in Iraq.

This shows how little the left understands real military heroes when they think they can intimidate the Swift Boat Vets. Fat chance!

"Yes, indeed- John Kerry thinks it's 1971 all over again. Yesterday, on "Face the Nation"
John Kerry once again slams American troops- Check it out-

"And there is no reason, Bob, that young American soldiers need to be going into homes of Iraqis in the dead of night, terrorizing kids and children, you know, women, breaking sort of the customs of the-of-the historical customs, religious customs."

Here is the transcript for "Face the Nation"-

http://www.cbsnews.com/htdocs/pdf/face_120405.pdf

You will find this statement at the bottom of page 4 and the top of page 5.



"When former Attorney General Ramsey Clark isn’t defending Saddam Hussein, or giving speeches for the crypto-Stalinist International ANSWER, he’s acting as counsel for the Palestine Liberation Organization, trying to prevent families of murdered Jews from collecting on judgments against the PLO."
Little Green Footballs ^ | November 28, 2005 | Charles Johnson


From Kerry's "The New Soldier":

Al Hubbard Sgt., 22 Troop Carrier Squadron Aug. ’65-June ’66
Emotions: Walking down the flight line at Saigon past stacks of aluminum cases containing American bodies and past stacks of aluminum luggage containing American currency. Seeing the tight, sad face of an Airman loading the bodies aboard a dirty Air Force Transport and the wide smiling face of a stewardess greeting the passengers aboard a clean Pan American Clipper Jet. Hearing a Vietnamese beg you to leave his country and an American colonel tells you to bomb his country. Hearing a Vietnamese invite you to live in his home, after the war and an American explain why you can’t live in his block, after the war. Flying over barren, brown, safe American held terrain and over lush, green unsafe enemy terrain. Feeling happy to be leaving a country in which you do not belong and sad to be returning to a country in which you are not allowed to belong. Sacrificing a portion of your consciousness so you won’t have to deal with being there and building mental blocks so you won’t have to deal with having been there.

- Al Hubbard, proven fraud who never set foot in Viet Nam. The only Vietnamese he ever met was when he was collaborating with the North Vietnamese in Paris on the American Communist Party's nickel.

John Kerry's explanation: "He (Hubbard) simply exaggarated his particular position.
But nobody knew it at the time.
And those things happen."

Stan, I agree that the Christmas in Cambodia BIG LIE is one of the two items that can skewer Mister Kerry politically.

It's one of those inescapable BIG LIES of the Hillary Rodham-- Edmond Hillary namesake sort, for which there is no twisting loose.

The other Kerry kaboshing item was mentioned by the author of the article.

There are the questions the Swifties raised about his honorable discharge, a mysterious discharge not issued until several years after he was out of the Navy and then only issued by President Jimmy Carter in the midst of his amnesty program for draft dodgers.

As many suspect, the probability that Lieutenant Kerry received a less than honorable discharge is the single largest issue that will turn voters off. (Leftist mind control agents can spin away medal tossing and Congressional testimony hi-jinx, but not a DD).
