Kerry and the vets ping...
Thank you for this ping, Interesting Times.
I will link to it.
Thanks for the ping IT.
There is no doubt that the SBVFT were the decisive factor in 2004 that defeated Kerry. They exposed the extreme bias of the MSM and Kerry's feet of clay. Until this very day the MSM continues its perpetuation of their distortion of the truth. The MSM has made "swiftboating" a pejorative term, but the truth is that it should be a badge of honor.
Thanks bump! bump! bump!
Thanks for the ping!
How the Swiftees, POWs and other Vietnam veterans circumvented the media and reached out to the public is a story that has profound implications for future political campaigns and news reporting .
I first heard of the Swiftvets on another Viet Nam vet forum - made up of Army river vets. I joined the swift boaters and even sent a very rare (for me) donation. As more information became available I posted to other forum sites with the real news along with links to my own site.
One of my biggest complaints - other than his treason in Paris and testimony before Congress - was his Purple Hearts. Many leftists believed any wound, no matter how inflicted or how minor qualified. I often posted the qualifications and links and pointed out that he didnt qualify for a single award. There were leftists so in favor of Hanoi John they refused to read the links because they were .mil or .gov!
Thanks for the post and the ping.
I will treat myself to this book to go with “Unfit for Command!”
God Bless all of the Swift Boaters. This small band of brave warriors and patriots saved us from being ruled by John Heinzy Kerry.
An interesting sidebar was how the Swift Boaters exposed so called conservatives to be otherwise from national figures to local figures.
The biggest national figure was BOR, Bill O’Riley.
Locally, a pseudo conservative, who used to be in our social group exposed himself one evening after a few glasses of wine re his hatred of the Swift Boaters. I ripped into him full bore. Since then, we say hello and that is it. After his outing as a liberal, he is on his 3rd job in less than 4 years, and his crazy wife is crazier. Their daughter turned 21 and doesn’t come home anymore. We call them the big D Family, Democrat and Dysfunctional.
Thank you for the ping. Maybe you can get someone, say like a Duncan Hunter to use a ‘special orders’ time to read this post into the Congressional Record for the record ....
