Just thought I would post this up for comments:

Right Wing Propaganda

Dexter Lehtinen said:
In 1971, I awakened after three days of unconsciousness aboard a hospital ship off the coast of Vietnam. I could not see, my jaws were wired shut, and my left cheekbone was missing, a gaping hole in its place.

Later, while still in that condition at St Albans Naval Hospital, one of my earliest recollections was hearing of John Kerry's testimony before Congress. I remember lying there, in disbelief, as I learned how Kerry told the world that I served in an Army reminiscent of Genghis Khan's; that officers like me routinely let their men plunder villages and rape villagers at will; that "war crimes" committed in Vietnam by my fellow soldiers "were not isolated incidents but crimes committed on a day-to-day basis with the full awareness of officers at all levels of command."

Then Kerry went to Paris, meeting with the North Vietnamese enemy officials, all while our soldiers still fought in the field. The pain and disbelief I felt listening to his words went deeper than the pain I felt from the enemy fire which seriously wounded my face.

Eighteen months later I was discharged from the hospital, the wounds inflicted by the enemy fully healed. But more than 30 years later, the wounds inflicted by John Kerry continue to bring pain to scores of Vietnam veterans. Those wounds — the bearing of false witness against me and a generation of courageous young Americans who fought and died in Vietnam — are much more serious than any wound warranting a Purple Heart.

Those wounds go to the heart and soul. Those wounds never go away. Today, my son is a Marine Corps weapons officer, flying the F/A 18 Hornet. He belongs to the same Marine Corps Kerry ridiculed with his 1971 book cover showing protestors simulating the Iwo Jima Memorial, raising an upside-down American flag. He flies the same F/A 18 fighter jet that Kerry voted against in the U. S. Senate. And today, Kerry's picture hangs in an honored place in Saigon's war museum, as a hero to the Vietnamese Communists.

Yet, John Kerry shamelessly drapes himself in the imagery of Vietnam, military service and the support of veterans, devoid of any media scrutiny. Meanwhile, the criticism and disapproval of Kerry by scores of veterans continues to fall on deaf ears. Worse yet, any legitimate criticism of Kerry's post-war record is discredited as a "personal" attack, or an attack against his service. John Kerry is quick to surround himself with a handful of veterans and claims overwhelming support from the veteran community. He ignores, however, the wounds he inflicted on millions of veterans, and he refuses to sign a waiver to release his military personal records and medical records. This is the portrait of a man who has failed to comes to terms with his treacherous past.

I, Dexter Lehtinen, paid for this ad personally, without any connection to other individuals or groups, because I want the public to know what John Kerry did to our Vietnam veterans.

You may also be suprised to learn that Mr. Lehtinen may run as a Republican candidate in the race for Mayor in Miami, Florida, and he also married to a republican congresswoman
Desperate Reublican looking for attention

This a bunch of shit. Kerry put his ass on the line for his country, which is more than George Bush, Dick Cheney or Donald Rumsfeld EVER did.

After seeing what he saw, he came back is testified that we were fighting a war we could not win. These are things that a patriotic and sensible person would do.

Viet Nam was a nightmare, he was absolutely right.

The war in Iraq is the same.

seems like this guy was watching Kerry's every move, meanwhile "I could not see, my jaws were wired shut, and my left cheekbone was missing". Seems a little strange to me, if half my face was missing i wouldnt give a shit about anything other than if i was going to survive or not. Other than that i really dont think this guy has any point, other than just wanting some attention and to help out his boy.

The republican "let's scare the hell out of them" campaign isn't good enough.
So it's time to drag out the old "tugging at the heart strings" routine.

Even better. It uses colors, which makes it easy to alarm the people that are too stupid to read. :thumbsup:

So is there a color-blind friendly version? Color-blind citizens have the same rights to be warned of impending doom as the rest of us do.
Those poor helpless people, imagine the horror, walking around thinking it is at alert yellow, but really it is orange!

Coincidently .... does'nt that system correspond to the colors of the tasty marshmellows in Lucky Charms?
