The Photo Dems Fear Most: Kerry with 'Hanoi Jane'

Democratic Party officials are hoping that no photographs exist of a well-covered Vietnam War protest where soldier-hating actress Jane Fonda and Democratic presidential front-runner John Kerry, then and up-and-coming member of Vietnam Veterans Against the War, railed against U.S. war policy from the back of the same pick-up truck.

"Scores of newspaper articles about the march" exist, according to Kerry biographer Douglas Brinkley.

Dubbed "Operation RAW" [Rapid American Withdrawal], the Sept. 1970 march featured Fonda, Kerry and a motley band of anti-war vets in an eighty-six mile trek from Morristown, New Jersey and Valley Forge, Pennsylvania - two Revolutionary War sites.

According to "Tour of Duty," Brinkley's book on Kerry's war years, when the protesters reached their destination they were treated to Fonda standing on the bed of a pick-up truck, where she "denounced the Nixon administration as a beehive for cold blooded killers."

"Marijuana was in the air," said Brinkley. "Skinny dippers frolicked in the Delaware River. . . [The group's] long hair, ripped jeans, army surplus store canteens, and toy guns gave the VVAW the look of a ragtag band of Haight-Ashbury refugees. . .

"Along the marching route, veterans would shout out phrases like 'Kill him!' and 'Cut his belly open' for dramatic effect," said Brinkley.

Others who spoke that day proclaimed the U.S. guilty of "genocide" in Southeast Asia.

Kerry followed Fonda's Nixon denunciation with a rousing anti-war address that made him "the new leader of Vietnam Veterans Against the War," Brinkley said. "From Valley Forge onward, [Kerry] was a committed anitwar activist. . ."

From there, Kerry went on to Detroit to organize a particularly offensive bit of guerrilla theater dubbed "The Winter Soldier Investigation," where Fonda presided as U.S. war atrocities were chronicled by "soldiers" who some later suspected were impostors.

After Winter Soldier, writes Brinkley, "Fonda personally adopted [Kerry's Vietnam Veterans Against the War] as her leading cause."

John Kerry seems to have had a way of eluding the bad odor that clings to his old associates. On "Meet the Press" in 1971, he appeared with VVAW member Al Hubbard, a veteran who was exposed around this time for lying about his rank and combat experience (he had seen no combat). While this confirmed suspicions about the dubious identities of many of the winter soldiers, it didn't keep Kerry from becoming famous. The young politician was able to have his cake and eat it, too, becoming the establishment, patriotic face of a radical, anti-patriotic movement. Quite a trick, really.

This might be helpful relating to Fonda pics...

Using her wealth and influence, she managed to garner support from American college campuses, advocating communism and encouraging rebellion and anarchy against the U.S. government. In a speech to Duke University students in 1970, Fonda told the gathering, "If you understood what Communism was, you would hope and pray on your knees that we would someday become Communist."

Too funny! I thought of a Kerry/Fonda '04 bumper sticker last night and here it is displayed on FR this morning. Someone did a better job of color and design than my imagination did though.

A couple of weeks ago CeCe Connolly reported for the WaPo that when John F'n Kerry attended a party with old friend Pete Yarrow of Peter Paul and Mary fame, he pretended to be smoking a joint.

I hate to admit that I watched Keith Olberman, but I saw that clip on his countdown show too..

President Bush does not get intimidated. Ask Osama and Saddam. McAullife, Kerry, and the Clintons better accept that fact.

Admitting you have a problem is the first step....:)

On the video of JFKerry pretending to toke,it was a 2 hour story,
then it disappeared from the airwaves never to be seen again.
Had that been President Bush or any other republican,
they would STILL be playing it.

I still think it would be great to have a still photo of that. It was on the January 15th show:

http://msnbc.msn.com/id/3978790/

Also From Douglass Brinkley I read:

Although it is a little talked about fact, John Kerry was arrested in Concord, Mass. for protesting the war and there is a picture of him being escorted by police with his hands behind his head in my book.

I would be interested in that picture too.

"...Detroit and Philadelphia newspaper archives may be a good place to look."

If we're going to find the Kerry photo we want in newspaper archives, we'll have to get there soon, before the Kerry supporters do.
If they haven't already.

This is becoming personal for me......see my older brother was almost killed(he survived) in Vietnam during the Tet Offensive and every time I see Fonda posing on the AA gun..I do a slow burn.

So I'm going to try like hell to locate the Fonda/Kerry photo...I read they were together at the Winter Soldier hearings in Detroit.
