Skip to comments.Reporting for Duty : John Kerry vouches for a child-porn criminal.
Posted on 05/06/2009 2:02:41 PM PDT by george76
Wade Sanders, who pleaded guilty in December to possession of child pornography, was sentenced Monday, and he got off relatively easy.
Sanders had argued that he deserved only probation...
The Union-Tribune describes Sanders as a "war hero," but he is best known for his service to John Kerry, the 2004 Democratic presidential nominee.
Kerry's central campaign claim was that he deserved to be president because his so-called band of brothers, veterans who had served alongside him on Navy Swift boats in Vietnam, vouched for his heroism and his impeccable character.
Kerry did not know that one of his fiercest defenders was a future child-porn criminal.
Even so, his "band of brothers" argument flopped because it turned out that the men who served alongside Kerry were far from unanimous in their admiration and support for him. A group of his detractors formed an organization called the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth.
They noted, among other things, that Kerry had begun his political career by slandering fellow veterans as war criminals.
In 2009, Kerry vouched for Sanders's character despite Sanders's admission to obsessively collecting child pornography. In 2004, Sanders vouched for Kerry's character despite . . .
Reader, we'll leave it to you to decide which of the myriad facts and allegations about Kerry are sufficiently relevant and credible to include in the preceding sentence.
For our part, suffice it to say that this grotesque bit of logrolling does not leave us thinking that Kerry might have been fit to command after all.

a federal judge sentenced the 68-year-old Wade Sanders to 37 months in prison
“Kerry did not know...”
We have no evidence of that.
ISN’T there a truism that goes something like . . . ummm, water seeks its own level, or some such phrase to that effect?
Is this the same John Kerry that is a member of the same party as Murtha, the Murtha who lied to the world about our brave Troops when he said, “they killed innocent civilians in cold blood” ?
Is this the same John Kerry that lied under oath when he accused our brave Troops, my brothers, by saying, “At times they had personally raped, cut off ears, cut off heads, taped wires from portable telephones to human genitals and turned up the power, cut off limbs, blown up bodies, randomly shot at civilians, razed villages in fashion reminiscent of Genghis Khan, ...........”?
Is this the same John Kerry that described our brave Troops in Iraq as “lazy & dumb” and told students to “study hard or ‘get stuck in Iraq”.
It seems that Paper-cut Kerry continues to beg for relevance.
If it walks like a duck,,,,,quacks like a duck,,,looks like a duck,,,, Kerry would recognise a ‘fellow traveler’
I remember looking into Sanders when he was on the tour with Kerry as one of his “band of brothers.” I just read the sentencing memo that was posted at the SDUT website.
Sanders is one sick puppy!
I didn’t realize that his most current job was “Senior Advisor on Veteran Affairs” to Lt. Gov. John Garamendi.
Sounds like the perve deserved more time. There’s been a lot of things supposedly caused by PTSD but I’ve never heard addiction to child porn was one of them.
Wade Sanders’ claim that he was obsessively “researching” child porn was good, but his suggestion that the Swift Vets made him do it is even better.
What a fine and honest fellow he is! John Kerry should be proud to have such a man as his leading veteran supporter.
Kerry Vet Supporter Who Slammed The Swiftboat Vets Is Busted For Child Porn
Remember Wade Sanders? He was one of the band of brothersSwift Boat veterans who supported John Kerrys presidential campaign and appeared onstage at the 2004 Democratic National Convention before Kerrys reporting for duty speech.
On the campaign trail, Sanders was one of Kerrys nastiest surrogates. In August 2004, he likened the president to a trapped animal. In September, he compared Karl Rove and Swift Boat Veterans for Truth chief John ONeill to Josef Goebbels. He repeatedly referred to the president and his men as chicken hawks, an especially nasty term because it is slang for a child molester as well as a derisive term for a nonveteran who favors a strong defense.
"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.":
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.
FYI: The Black Panthers were revolutionary communists/domestic terrorists.

From the article: REVOLUTIONARY HEROS
"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."

[note: we're not permitted to post this pic without permission from the photographer. this is a different photo than one at top -etl]
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."

The event was organized by the Workers World Party and "Troops Out Now". TON is an "anti-war" (pro-communist) Workers World Party front group.
As you probably already know, Kerry has another friend who is a child molester: Peter Yarrow. The molester is even the “godfather” of his daughter...how creepy is that?!
Those libs do so enjoy pushing the boundaries of decency, don’t they?
Mark my words, soon pedophilia will be a protected “right”; just like homosexuality.
A pity play is one of the tip-offs you're dealing with a sociopath...
I’m sure Hanoi John Kerry is proud to have Wade Sanders as his leading veteran supporter. They are ideological bedfellows and that’s all that counts with them.
Democrats are nuts.
They think homosexuals are born that way, but child molesters can be cured
Thanks for the ping!
If John Kerry himself is a pedophile and a kiddie porn afficionado, I’m certain his Democrat party operatives have cleaned up the evidence.
