For Kerry, Patriotism Is Spelled Treason

"Guard against the impostures of pretended patriotism." --George Washington

Kerry has a long list of antics designed to undermine America's military strength and resolve. Kerry, who fancies himself a war hero, has spent much of his political career denigrating American military personnel and the nation they defend. But his anti-American actions preceded his first campaign for Congress -- indeed, they were the platform from which he launched his political career.

Kerry was (and remains) an effective spokesperson for his Leftist cadre. His anti-war protest period culminated with his 1971 congressional testimony, after which he told the press:

"There are all kinds of atrocities and I would have to say that, yes, yes, I committed the same kind of atrocities as thousands of other soldiers have committed in that I took part in shootings in free-fire zones. I conducted harassment and interdiction fire. I used 50-caliber machine guns, which we were granted and ordered to use, which were our only weapon against people. I took part in search-and-destroy missions, in the burning of villages. All of this is contrary to the laws of warfare. All of this is contrary to the Geneva Conventions...."

As for the success of Kerry's anti-democracy protests and his leadership of the VVAW and association with Fonda's Winter Soldier Investigation, General Vo Nguyen Giap, Vietnam's most decorated military leader, wrote in retrospect that if not for the disunity created by such stateside protesters, Hanoi would have ultimately surrendered.

But the consequences of Kerry's actions should not stop with the fall of Saigon.

Kerry, by his own account, violated the UCMJ, the Geneva Conventions and the U.S. Code while serving as a Navy officer, and he further stands in violation of Article three, Section three of the U.S. Constitution.

Upon entering the Navy in 1966, John Kerry signed a six-year contract (plus a six-month extension during wartime) and an Officer Candidate contract for five years of active duty and active Naval Reserve.

This indicates that Kerry was clearly a commissioned officer at the time of his 1970 meeting with NVA Communists in Paris -- in direct violation of the UCMJ's Article 104 part 904, and U.S. Code 18 U.S.C. 953.

That meeting, and Kerry's subsequent coddling of Communists while leading mass protests against our military in the year that followed, also place him in direct violation of our Constitution's Article three, Section three, which defines treason as "giving aid and comfort" to the enemy in time of warfare. (As General Vo Nguyen Giap is his witness....)

The Constitution's Fourteenth Amendment, Section 3, which states:

"No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice-President ... having previously taken an oath ... to support the Constitution of the United States, who has engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof."

* Thank you Rhod for this graphic of Kerry as Uncle Sam it is perfect.

God help America if this so called man, John Kerry ever becomes President. It is shameful enough that he has been allowed to hold office of any kind in the United States of America. Because he was allowed to do so, we pay the price now for this blind eye, non punishment for the treason Kerry and others committed as we continue to hear him bash our military at every turn.

The good news is that Kerry will never be President of the United States. Maybe he could try Canada.Next the disgusting thing is that this bastard still receives cover by every major newspaper in the country and the liberal America hating left.It is insane that the coming election is as close as it is or that democrats very well might take over the House. If Americans knew the truth about liberals or as they like to call them self progressives they would not have a chance. But the news media has failed and deceived Americans.

Bolt Neck has created his own hell. I think his remark simply expressed what was already in his mind, but being the fantasist he is, he might believe he meant something else.

Whatever. He's spent a lifetime in politics perfecting his pose and flattering like-minded people in Eastern Massachusetts. That's even more disturbing; I know these people, I live nearby. Most of them think as Kerry does, and that's natural for liberals/progressives.

We need to remember that "progressivism" has always included within its philosophies the classification of people, from dumb to smart, and all that is suggests. We're still practicing a version of the progressive education system of Dewey and others.

Snobbery is predictable when your social policies are governed by an estimation of a person's potential and value in life. Kerry just represents the point of view...and whatever liberals do to bury this fact in the bullshit of big heartedness, snobbery and class-consciousness is built into the fabric of their ideas.

I just stumbled on a post at Polipundit that reminded me that I heard this somewhere else. Where, I don't remember.

In 1972 Kerry unburdened himself of his concern that a volunteer Army would be dominated by the underprivileged (who I think he described as "black, brown and the poor") and these volunteers would be prone "to the perpetuation of war crimes".

Once you stop laughing at this shuffling, donkey-faced pinwheel, consider what he said.

Blacks, browns and the poor are murderous rabble who enlist for ignoble reasons, and then engage in hideous behavior in the military.

Well, that's what leftists think.

WT.Check this out!!!
Pulitzer Prize-winning journolist Sy Hersh was speaking to an audience of college students a McGill University in Montreal yesterday. He said: "There has never been an American army as violent and murderous as the one in Iraq."

You could say this is Kerry part duh
I think he needs to be hit with a blogburst...

John, that makes me feel good. To really feel and believe that there is no way Kerry will ever be President does help a lot!

Rhod, that is very true..............

"We need to remember that "progressivism" has always included within its philosophies the classification of people, from dumb to smart, and all that is suggests."

Your other comment hits the nail on the head how the leftist think too.
