Major Leftist Indoctrination Group Poses As Vets Aid Org

ALERT To False Front Predators

An insidious, treacherous, anti-military, anti-democracy and anti-capitalist organization called “Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America”, IAVA, is posing as a veteran’s aid and support group in an attempt to turn the last non-Leftist bastion of America into the Left’s mightiest arm of real force.

They are dedicated to one mission, and one mission only: indoctrinate the average service member into a Leftist ideologue loyal to George Soros’ and Obama’s neo-Marxist revolution. Go to this link and scroll down to the bottom, and you will see the IAVA’s “report card” on politicians’ performance as supporters of the troops. John McCain is given a D, Barack Obama a B.

George Soros is a financier of the IAVA. ( From Blackfive: But Burden says what really bothers him about IAVA’s report card is its insistence that its grades are nonpartisan. He points to IAVA’s funding: Jonathan Soros, son of liberal financier George Soros, is sponsoring the group’s annual dinner next month. At the same time, the IAVA uses technology provided by Democracy in Action, a self-described “progressive nonprofit” that provides discount services to liberal groups. And, Burden points out, Rieckhoff once delivered the Democratic response to one of President Bush’s radio addresses.) They used to operate under the moniker Operation Truth before they came up with the less radical sounding IAVA.

The IAVA, led by Paul Rieckhoff, claims to operate as as a “non-partisan” group, but as you can tell by both the report card linked above, and the fact that Rieckhoff blogs exclusively for the Huffington Post as the face of the IAVA, they are anything but. You can put the fact that Rieckhoff makes such a bluster about his alleged “firecely non-partisan” stance into the “Me thinks thou do protest too much” file.

Anyone who operates behind such a curtain of blatant deception is a coward, a predator, and fits the vernacular appellation of “weasel”. Don’t presume that the term “traitor’ hasn’t come to my mind, either.

Predatory IAVA commercial:

Wild Thing's comment.........

The scumbag spokesman for this group, Paul Rieckhoff, is a far left liberal. These are real low lifes, like John Kerry and Murtha.


....Thank you Jack for sending this to me.

Thanks for the heads up on this organization Chrissie. I had a feeling there was something phony about that ad when I first viewed it.

This is a veterans organization, that continues ot berate two presidents. George H.W.Bush certainly did serve but they give him no credit at all for his service, W. served honorably too. They neglect to mention the plane W. trained on and flew was not the best plane to be used in Vietnam, in fact that plane F-102 Delta Dagger was not conducive to the type of combat in Vietnam. But again they are trying to say he did not serve, when clearly he did. And was honorably discharged.

They tout John Kerry, as serving and list his bogus purple hearts and Silver Star, claim his service was from '66-70, when clearly this is an all out lie, even kerrys own records say '66-78.

They fail to mention that for a Naval officer to attain the rank of Leutenant in 12 years is clearly the mark of a bad officer and did not mention that this turd was passed over for promotion several times, in that time. (Probably had something to do with his secret meeting with the North Vietnamese in Paris)but they don't mention that, either. These lying bastards also don't mention that kerry's medals were issued twice. Only one reason for that His Dishonorable Discharge overturned by Carter.

Then there is Chappaquidick Ted. Supposedly served in the Army 1951-52, they don't mention his Daddy got him out of Korea and sent to a Nato post in France, and how many enlistments last only one year, a draftee was two years.

They mention all these 'Deficrat' Heroes but fail to mention Duke Cunningham, Bob Dole, John McCain who come to mind immediately, but they are NON-partisan ...right. They certainly are liars.

And how can they call themselves a veterans group when their agenda is against what veterans stand for? I don't get it.
And speaking of Bush, I remember how they all jumped on how there was supposedly a year missing from his service record. How do we know what he was doing? His dad worked for the CIA at one time. Do you think he might have been on a mission? God, these liberal loonies are so stupid!

I hate to see this. A Leftist organization that is not upfront about its politics, trying to entice young soldiers and vets into it's ranks. I hope word spreads about IAVA. If Pat Dollard and Blackfive are outing it word should spread quickly.

Thank you Chrissie, as I said I'm not surprised.
From the mentally deficient crippled leader who gave Eastern Europe to Stalin at Yalta, to the dereliction of duty on board the PT109, LBJ's Silver Star and Kerry's heroic Cambodian adventure everything the party of the Communists do is a calculated sham. Thank you Mark, Lynn and Tom, G.W Bush was very much available to be called up for Vietnam service as surely as any reserve forces are today.

Ah, now the skunk is out of the bag. IAVA, a veterans' organization Jane Fonda can join! For those who'd get their ass kicked at the American Legion!

James M., thank you. I had not seen it but
I saw some things online and still it was
hard to tell the first time I saw things
about it.
Then people started to finally speak out
about how fake the it is.

Posted by: Wild Thing at April 11, 2009 11:52 PM

Mark, wow thank you for all of that you told
about. I wish more peoople would know about
this. I have a sick feeling a ton of people
donate to this thing and have no idea what
they are giving money to.

Posted by: Wild Thing at April 11, 2009 11:56 PM

Lynn, yes, they sure went after Bush and the
things they said were all lies. Bush stayed
cool about it and let them make fools of
themselves, but the bad and sad part is
that I would think it still would hurt to
have lies like that said. I know I would
feel really upset about it.

Posted by: Wild Thing at April 11, 2009 11:59 PM

Tom, I think so too. More military will see it
and learn about it and pass it on. This group
using our troops and Veterans like they are
really upsets me.

Posted by: Wild Thing at April 12, 2009 12:02 AM

Jack, it is so important and thank you for sending it
to me. Groups like this that go to ones heart that
want to be supportive are really evil and need to
be taken down.

Anonymous, yes Hanoi Jane can fit right
in with IAVA.
