Kerry Urges Democrats to Fight Back (AP trashes Swiftboat Vets for Truth)
AP ^ | 9.22.06 | Will Lester

Posted on 09/22/2006 8:47:35 AM PDT by ikez78

WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Swift Boat Veterans for Truth group was Sen. John Kerry's albatross in 2004. Now, the Democrat is warning his party about suffering the same fate in a fundraising letter.

In 2004, the Swift Boat group, backed by Texas businessman Bob Perry, made unsubstantiated allegations about Kerry's Vietnam War heroism. The presidential nominee's slow and uncertain response is blamed for helping doom his White House bid.

It's just the AP engaging in the Dem tactic of telling a lie often enough that it appears to be the truth.

The AP is a liar period! The Swift Boat Vets were correct in every aspect and someone should sue these anti-American left-wing fascist pigs at the AP for their lies.

All Kerry had to do was release his records and this would have all been over, one way or another.

If Kerry thinks he had it bad in 2004, imagine what Hillary's Hitler Youth are going to do to Kerry. I guarantee that when Kerry gets to the debates with Hillary, he will be labeled a coward with an incomplete 180 and those boo-boos will come to light.

And all the RATS will forget about what a hero Kerry was in 2004.

Typical Kerry "firefight"..

Start shooting when the enemy isn't present..
Get hit by his own ricochets, run in fear, declare himself a hero and claim a Medal.
Dumb shit!

If Kerry doesn't STFU, those REALLY bad boys from the SBVFT will come off their hammocks and kick his lying traitorous bimbo ass.

Semper Fi

The AP knows perfectly well that "unsubstantiated" is a lie -- all they have to do is check the back of "Unfit for Command" for documentation and sworn affidavits.

The usual journalistic standard is that an allegation supported by two eyewitnesses is "substantiated." The Swift Vets have dozens...

the MSM always ssys things like "unsubstantiated" or "discredited" but I have yet to see any claims made by the SBVT that have been discredited.

Truthfully the only one that's been discredited is sKerry.

Beaware that this same disinfo campaign will be used against the BootMurtha group.

Hah..how bogus.

The albatross for John Kerry was John Kerry. His actions spoke as loudly as his words...
and that took him down.

Of course, the Swifties helped ;-)

Dear MR. Kerry

Why were your after action reports filed with a Lieutenant as your rank and why was your discharge papers listing your rank as LtJG (a rank lower then Lieutenant).

Officers do not get demoted unless they did something gravely wrong. What did you do? Would you release your full military record to the general public so we can understand the event?

When you have better than 10 to 1 agreement among the vets who where there with Kerry in Vietnam, how is it that their "allegations" remain "unsubstantiated"?

And, how is it that John F. Kerry by his own admission in sworn testimony before Congress has not been charged and prosecuted for "War Crimes" in Vietnam?

Why is Kerry asking others to fight back when he is unwilling to do so himself? If Kerry is telling the truth, then his military records would confirm it. Releasing these records would prove unequivocably that the SwiftBoat Vets are liars. I would suggest to Kerry that he release these records without further delay so that his good name would be cleared.

Go get 'em, Senator Kerry. Release those records and prove to everyone that you were telling the truth all along.

Unsubstantiated allegations? Last I knew there were close to 100 veterans who came forward and signed their names to the those allegations.

What is lacking is not Swiftboat Vet for Truth credibility but an adequate response from John Kerry to squash the allegations if they are indeed untrue.

Which he can't and won't give for obvious reasons.

The more Kerry complains about the SBVT, the worse HE looks...because it reminds Americans of his advice to cut and run from Vietnam....and how he wants to replicate that now...

I am so glad that the Swifties are getting "riled up" again...it seems that all they have to do is growl a little and Kerry starts crying like a baby....LOL

Nothing surprises me about the MSM

The MSM liars maintained for weeks that the forged documents regarding President Bush's Air National Guard service were accurate. They went to extreme lengths to try to prove that his ANG detachment could have had a typrwriter that could have had the Helvetica font that somehow exactly matched MS Word's Helvetica font that came into existence twenty years after the dates printed on the forged documents.

Regardless how much Kerry and the Dems fight back, it will make them look even worse in the eye's of Americans picking on American vets, or ( Big guy picking on the little guy ).... the Dems have no intelligence, no brains at all, no matter what they say anymore, they look bad.

I really don't recall any unsubstantiated allegations by the Swiftees...

Of course, if sKerry would simply SIGN THE 180 and release ALL HIS MILITARY RECORDS to the press, without any "scrubbing", I'm willing to be persuaded otherwise.

So far, none of the criticism of sKerry by the Swiftees has been clearly contradicted by clear, unaltered, official records.

There is a lesson to be learned here by all at Free Republic. If over your lifetime you manage to accumulate a substantial amount of money, do not marry a liberal!!! Your widow/widower may marry another liberal, and the money may well end up helping a Democrat scum like this one.

John Heintz must be spinning in his grave.

I did by writing "Truth is troubling to some of you," and sent them a little poem...

MSM

Ragged scornful lot, hate filled words and show,
Better to meet the bear, the swine and snake,
Can’t stand to hear you shout about what you don’t know,
Better to kick an ass, feed the croc, than have your lie make,
Anything for us, anything against us, you simple fake.

You smile our way but your phony smile gives you away.
For when you open that mouth—that smarmy, screwed up hole,
You talk and talk but do not have a true and good thing to say,
About any real Christian or Jew, about anyone who pays the toll,
By work—ever to work, pay and pray; we humbly live to work our soul.

You proclaim yourself free of bias and informed, numbed,
To agendas. But no day passes you fail to strike us hard.
Do you think we can’t hear? Do you think we’re simply dumb?
We hear your twists, your omissions, how you play your card.
We know you enough to know your news is false, liberally marred.

Can you imagine having to count on John Kerry for even the least little thing, much less your basic security??

I wouldn't want to have to rely on him as a team member, much less a leader.

Ouch! The MSM has never forgiven the Swiftees for demolishing Kerry's Vietnam armor. Kerry never did answer their questions during the campaign. Let's remember it wasn't his opponents who made Vietnam the issue - he did! And he couldn't tell what exactly he did there and during his Cambodia layover.

"Show me just what Mohammed brought that was new, and there you will find things only evil and inhuman, such as his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached." -Manuel II Paleologus

More "support the troops and veterans," provided they are leftist too.

All sKerry ever had to do was allow his full and unsanitized jacket to be opened for public scrutiny, as did Bush. Any unsubstantiated claims the Swifties made would have been proven false .... if they could have been.

His own lack of candor in revealing his records to all substantiates their claims, as far as I'm concerned.

Kerry was out on the talkshows a few months after the elections and everytime the swiftboat vets came up he said all of theri allegations had been proven to be lies.

Its the same BS Gore spews when he says the global warming debate is over and all scientists agree....

You gotta wear high boots when a Dim starts talking...

Zell Miller: 2004 Republican National Convention Address

What has happened to the Party I've spent my life working in?

I can remember when Democrats believed it was the duty of America to fight for freedom over tyranny.

It was Democratic President Harry Truman who pushed the Red Army out of Iran, who came to the aid of Greece when Communists threatened to overthrow it, who stared down the Soviet blockade of West Berlin by flying in supplies and saving the city.

Time after time in our history, in the face of great danger, Democrats and Republicans worked together to ensure that freedom would not falter. But not today.

Motivated more by partisan politics than by national security, today's Democratic leaders see America as an occupier, not a liberator.

And nothing makes this Marine madder than someone calling American troops occupiers rather than liberators.

Tell that -- Tell that to the one-half of Europe that was freed because Franklin Roosevelt led an army of liberators, not occupiers.

Tell that to the lower half of the Korean Peninsula that is free because Dwight Eisenhower commanded an army of liberators, not occupiers.

Tell that to the half a billion men, women and children who are free today from Poland to Siberia, because Ronald Reagan rebuilt a military of liberators, not occupiers.

Never in the history of the world has any soldier sacrificed more for the freedom and liberty of total strangers than the American soldier. And, our soldiers don't just give freedom abroad, they preserve it for us here at home.

For it has been said so truthfully that it is the soldier, not the reporter, who has given us the freedom of the press.

It is the soldier, not the poet, who has given us freedom of speech. It is the soldier, not the agitator, who has given us the freedom to protest.

It is the soldier who salutes the flag, serves beneath the flag, whose coffin is draped by the flag who gives that protester the freedom he abuses to burn that flag.

No one should dare to even think about being the Commander in Chief of this country if he doesn't believe with all his heart that our soldiers are liberators abroad and defenders of freedom at home.

But don't waste your breath telling that to the leaders of my Party today. In their warped way of thinking America is the problem, not the solution.

They don't believe there's any real danger in the world except that which America brings upon itself through our clumsy and misguided foreign policy.

It is not their patriotism -- it is their judgment that has been so sorely lacking.

They claimed Carter's pacifism would lead to peace -- they were wrong.

They claimed Reagan's defense buildup would lead to war -- they were wrong.

And no pair has been more wrong, more loudly, more often than the two Senators from Massachusetts, Ted Kennedy and John Kerry.

Together, Kennedy/Kerry have opposed the very weapons systems that won the Cold War and that are now winning the war on terror.

Listing all the weapon systems that Senator Kerry tried his best to shut down sounds like an auctioneer selling off our national security. But Americans need to know the facts.

The B-1 bomber, that Senator Kerry opposed, dropped 40% of the bombs in the first six months of [Operation] Enduring Freedom.

The B-2 bomber, that Senator Kerry opposed, delivered air strikes against the Taliban in Afghanistan and Hussein's command post in Iraq.

The F-14A Tomcats, that Senator Kerry opposed, shot down Khadifi's Libyan MIGs over the Gulf of Sidra.

The modernized F-14D, that Senator Kerry opposed, delivered missile strikes against Tora Bora.

The Apache helicopter, that Senator Kerry opposed, took out those Republican Guard tanks in Kuwait in the Gulf War.

The F-15 Eagles, that Senator Kerry opposed, flew cover over our Nation's Capital and this very city after 9/11.

That wouldn't have put anything behind him,it would only have proven the Swift Vets case so substantially that the AP couldn't lie Kerry's way out of it.
