REPORT FROM THE FRONT FINAL THOUGHTS the Vietnam Veterans against Kerry demonstration at the DNC.
Its now been a week since the Vietnam Vets serenaded John Kerry at the Fleet Center and in front of his house. The thing that amazes me the most is the degree to which the mainstream media has totally ignored our legitimate expressions of anger at the con job the Democrat National Committee was trying to foist on America so they could grab more power over us.
My wife, the fabulous Cindy, reminded me of PT Barnums favorite saying You can fool some of the people all of the time, and you can fool all of the people some of the time, but you cant fool all of the people all of the time. The latter is what Kerry and his minions are trying to do to America this election season. Apparently they think us Vietnam Era Vets are senile by now and dont remember his treachery that caused us to lose that war and denied us the honor we so richly earned.
I have this warning to the veterans of latter generations:
IF JOHN KERRY IS ELECTED, I PROMISE YOU HE WILL STEAL YOUR HONOR AS HE STOLE OURS.
Back to our demonstration and march. The media was there outside the Fleet Center by the hundreds and I had hundreds of cameras in my face as we advanced our banner into their consciousness. I personally was interviewed perhaps twenty times and I saw numerous other comrades interviewed also. WHERE ARE THOSE TAPES? ARE THEY BEING HIDDEN ON PURPOSE?
I will say that Channel Five ABC in Boston did show brief snippets of our efforts Wednesday and Thursday on their eleven oclock news and another guy handed my daughter a cell phone and a voice told her:
Youre on the radio, how old are you? To which she answered Nine.
He then asked Why dont you like John Kerry? and she answered Because hes a liar and I dont like his chin.
But that was all I know of. Kerry can never win if we can get the word out that two thirds of all Vietnam Veterans dislike him intensely, but how are we going to do that if the media will ignore us?
The following links describe my experience those nights and a few pictures I took of the situation:
Thank you for sharing! What makes me so angry is that we KNOW the media will make a huge story of the Bush protesters in New York.
Why not just post them here?
I imagine a Kerry White House...where Kerry uses the military as Clinton did....
and a large anti 'Kerry's war' movement throwing their medals over the white house fence
and Kerry's ordering US troops to fire on them...
