What is wrong with the TV and Cable newsrooms?
Why do they protect AND promote Hanoi Kerry?
Why is that talk radio and the internet are not afraid to tell the truth?
Why do the TV and Cable newsrooms refuse to "question Senator Kerry's patriotism"?
Why do the TV and Cable newsrooms look for the negative news
BUT ignore they are backing a traitor?
A) The TV and Cable newsrooms are willing to sell us out
to make the big bucks from Hanoi Kerry campaign ads.
They will even lie on "the poll results"
to get you to think a traitor is even with the President."
"Im an internationalist. Id like to see our troops dispersed through [sic] the world
only at the directive of the United Nations."
Hanoi John Kerry, The Harvard Crimson, 1970
has a Campaign Platform
Just like the old days!
The book that Kerry
wishes would just go away.
|HanoiJohnKerry.com is a blog with a primary purpose. That purpose is to counter the preposterous claims of Sen. John Forbes Kerry (D-MA) that he has any legitimate claim to any sort of "brotherhood" among combat veterans of the War in Vietnam.
While it is generally supposed that his service as a Naval officer on a "Swift Boat" in that theater was adequate and honorable, there is much to question regarding his readiness to allow the accolade "war hero" to be applied to him.
Likewise, it is not at all uncommon for more senior Naval officers to raise an eyebrow at the swiftness and relative comfort by which Lt. JG Kerry attained those medals, and who is available to vouch for the efficacy of his being awarded them (since, as boat commander, it would be his own task to make recommendation for awards for all personnel, including himself, on the Swift Boat).
But most egregious was his conduct, words and associations upon his early-out (from SEA) return to the USA and discharge from the US Navy. His leadership role with the radical pro-Communist (inaccurate to deem this group "anti-war") group called "Vietnam Veterans Against the [Vietnam] War" (hereafter VVAW).
It was while climbing the social and political ladder of the pro-Soviet Left as a principle of VVAW that John Kerry found his political soul-mate in Hanoi Jane Fonda. Granted, these politically formative years for Kerry were prior to the more outlandish acts of Fonda that earned her that name, but it is easily documentable that Fonda did not under go any radical transformation in belief or character from the time she and Kerry were working the same side of the street to the time she traveled to Hanoi, NVN and entered US history as the most overt traitor to ever NOT be charged, tried and executed.
John Kerry went to his own overt extremes to demonstrate that, politically, socially and in lowness of character, there wasn't a nickel's worth of difference between he and Fonda. Thus, in the spirit of fairness and accuracy, we are reasonably certain that he will be agreeably flattered by calling him Hanoi John Kerry.
Here, testifying before the Fulbright Senate Foreign Relations Committee, is where John Kerry, spokesman for Vietnam Veterans Against the War, cemented his position and moniker as "Hanoi John" Kerry. This was the occasion where US troops still in the field in Vietnam learned from one of their FORMER brothers-in-arms that they were heinous murderers and war criminals. HJK would now like to call on them for support in his bid to be the new Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces. Perhaps the most preposterous hypocrisy of all.
Only idiots would vote for a traitor PING
Where is that pic of the idiot shaking hands with the communist looser ?
It's because they hate conservatives.
FOX NEWS reporting "polls are close"
What a crock!
You nailed him, Tonk, but you're not doing anything for my confidence in the American voting public! After all, Goreghoul darn near pulled it off in 2000 (the stealing--literally--of a close election) and we know the criminal enterprise party has not been sitting on its fraudulent hands since then.
because editors, producers, and reporters with any senority
*agree* with what he said after he returned from viet nam.
(YES ! kerry WAS in viet nam!! did you know?)
it is therefore not newsworthy.
Hey, if Dubya was up 20, he wouldn't need our help...
Because they know he doesn't have a chance, anyway.
FOX NEWS reporting "polls are close"
What a crock!
I'm so sick and tired of the media and their POLLS I can scream! FnKerry always ahead or neck and neck.
I always say, 'well, how can the polls be that close? I never voted in any of them!'
klintoon didn't have a chance either, but he/she/they debauched the white house for 8 years.
Reagan did one more thing, though - he was instrumental in the lapsing of the "Fairness Doctrine" which was in fact the single reason for the nonexistence of conservative talk radio to that point. Openly conservative talk radio has the humility to accept that its perspective has a POV which has a name - conservative. "Objective journalism" is OTOH inherently arrogant - claiming that those who have a contrasting POV are "not objective" is claiming that those who have your own POV are objective. And if objective, then wise; you cannot be objective if you are unwise.
Talk radio and the Internet, at their most disputatious, admit that the POV is that of a frail mortal, and that the POV legitimately can be named. It is therefore not arrogant in the way that journalism is. Journalism is also negative and superficial because of the business imperatives of entertaining the audience. Therefore journalism is not wisdom, and that unwisdom shows up in the political tendency journalism consistently manifests.
Just damn, Tonk. Great post.
