Holy Moley....did you know Kerry supports our Veterans??? Get the Tums...
With an athletic supporter?
On H&C last night Sean said that Lurch is being vetted for Barry’s VP. I kid you not.
Sure he does... the “Veterans” For Peace, maybe.
I heard he earned medals in Vietnam too.
The self-confessed war criminal is on Obama's VP list?
Wasn’t he in VietNam?
Saw it this AM on local TV.After 20 odd years, this is about all he can come up with for a commercial for re-election.He actually has a primary to deal with, and his Rep. opponent might make things difficult for him(I hope)
If the world was a ‘fair’ place, the fact that John Kerry was a ‘war profiteer’ would be held against him. But alas, ‘two legs bad, four legs better’....
OK Lerch - cough up the DD-214 - the real one, that is!
Did YOU know that John Kerry served in Vietnam?
I do hope Barry selects Kerry for VP, as I believe it would seal his doom for seeking the Prersidency.
Kerry’s Dem opponent......
Kerry’s Repub. opponent...
What with—a codpiece?
I knew Freepers were going to make me laugh on this one!!!!!!
Here below is a collection of things I've gathered over a period of time on John Fonda Kerry and the pro-communist...i mean ANTI-WAR! movement.
John Kerry, from his book, The New Soldier
"We will not quickly join those who march on Veterans' Day waving small [American] flags, calling to memory those thousands who died for the 'greater glory of the United States.'..."
"The John Kerry quote comes in the epilogue to "The New Soldier," the book put out by Vietnam Veterans Against the War [VVAW]. The book's cover features a group of not-particularly sober-looking anti-war protesters (vets, presumably) flying the American flag upside down [while mocking the historic flag raising event at Iwo Jima]":
Note John Kerry's name at top right of The New Soldier
"...if the United States were to set a date for withdrawal the prisoners of war would be returned."-J.F. Kerry
"Under questioning from the Committee, Kerry referred to the democratically elected government of South Vietnam -- our allies -- as a "dictatorial regime, the Thieu-Ky-Khiem regime," while respectfully calling the North Vietnamese communist regime we were fighting by its oxymoronic official name, the Democratic Republic of Vietnam, and the murderous Viet Cong's political arm by their preferred "Provisional Revolutionary Government.":
During the question and answer period following his April 22, 1971 televised testimony before the Armed Services Committee of the United States Senate, Kerry said:
"I have been to Paris. I have talked with both delegations at the peace talks, that is to say the Democratic Republic of Vietnam and the Provisional Revolutionary Government and of all eight of Madam Binh's points it has been stated time and time again, and was stated by Senator Vance Hartke when he returned from Paris, and it has been stated by many other officials of this Government, if the United States were to set a date for withdrawal the prisoners of war would be returned."
Even today, knowing what we know about the Vietnamese communists and about John Kerry, it is difficult to grasp the enormity of what he was confessing to. As an American citizen and a member of the United States Navywhile his former comrades and countless others were fighting and dying in Vietnam at the hands of Viet Cong guerillas and North Vietnamese regularsKerry consorted with the Viet Cong representative and discussed (talked with, he euphemized) her plan. That obscene plan included a trade: the return of our POWs for a withdrawal of American forces.
As John ONeill expressed in his important bestselling book Unfit For Command, . . . America could have its POWs back only if we agreed that we lost, then surrendered, and then set a date to leave.
Kerrys wartime trip to Paris was confirmed about six months ago by a campaign spokesman, who tossed it off as a mere fact-finding excursion.
Yet Kerry was apparently so impressed with the facts he found in company with the Viet Cong and North Vietnamese that a few months after his return from Paris he had the effrontery to urge the President of the United States to accept his communist hosts plan for 'peace' in Vietnam."
"We will not quickly join those who march on Veterans' Day waving small (American) flags, calling to memory those thousands who died for the 'greater glory of the United States.' "
So John Kerry would have a difficult time marching with those waving small American flags yet had NO problems marching with those waving HUGE VIETCONG FLAGS?
"Pictured above: VVAW-supported demonstration during the Washington Spring Offensive, April - May 1971. Notice the North Vietnamese and Viet Cong flags."
From 1972: "I am not a do-gooder, I am a revolutionary. A revolutionary woman."
Fonda made the following statement at the University of Texas:
"We've got to establish a Socialist economic structure that will limit private profit-oriented businesses. Whether the transition is peaceful depends on the way our present governmental leaders react. We must commit our lives to this transition ...... We should be very proud of our new breed of soldier. It's not organized but it's mutiny, and they have every right." --Karen Elliott Dallas Morning News December 11, 1971

The photo is genuine.
Here is what Jane Fonda herself had to say about it...
"My reaction is that the American people have had it with the big lie. Any attempt to link Kerry to me and make him look bad with that connection is completely false. We were at a rally for veterans at the same time. I spoke, Donald Sutherland spoke, John Kerry spoke at the end. I don't even think we shook hands."

Here's another photo showing Kerry, Ramsey Clark (US attorney general under democrat prez, LBJ, Al Hubbard (Black Panther member, who "appoint[ed] Kerry to the VVAW's Executive Committee") and, 'allegedly' Jane Fonda all together on stage at a (wink) "anti-war" rally.
June, 1970 -- Kerry joins Vietnam Veterans Against the War (VVAW), a national veterans group that is part of the Peoples Coalition for Peace and Justice. The PCPJ is a broad coalition of local and national organizations, including the Communist Party, USA, "committed to conducting demonstrations aimed at ending the war in Indochina, and poverty, racism and injustice at home." The VVAW, CCI and PCPJ all have headquarters at 156 Fifth Avenue in New York City. VVAW Executive Secretary Al Hubbard, a former **Black Panther, is also on the coordinating committee of the PCPJ. Hubbard soon appoints Kerry to the VVAW's Executive Committee, bypassing the normal election process.

From the article: REVOLUTIONARY HEROES
"On May 1st, May Day , the day of the gigantic Free Huey rally, two of Alioto's top executioners vamped on the brothers from the Brown Community who were attending to their own affairs. These brothers, who are endowed with the revolutionary spirit of the Black Panther Party defended themselves from the racist pig gestapo.
Pig Joseph Brodnik received his just reward with a big hole in the chest. Pig Paul McGoran got his in the mouth which was not quite enough to off him.
The revolutionary brothers escaped the huge swarm of pigs with dogs, mace, tanks and helicopters, proving once again that "the spirit of the people is greater than the man's technology."
To these brothers the revolutionary people of racist America want to say, by your revolutionary deed you are heroes, and that you are always welcome to our camp."

Article: REVOLUTIONARY HEROS (May 11, 1969):
November 22, 1970 -- During a fund-raising tour for GI deserters, Vietnam Veterans Against the War and the Black Panthers, Jane Fonda is quoted in the Detroit Free Press as telling a University of Michigan audience:
"I would think that if you understood what communism was, you would hope, you would pray on your knees that we would someday become communist," and "The peace proposal of the Viet Cong is the only honorable, just, possible way to achieve peace in Vietnam."
Wow..just wow...thank you for all of that...amazing
