“The media has got to begin to not give equal time or equal balance to an absolutely absurd notion just because somebody asserts it or simply because somebody says something which everybody knows is not factual.”
—Senator John Kerry
Well, John-boy should know whereof he speaks—he’s made a career of spouting absurd and less than factual notions, beginning with his slanderous 1971 testimony regarding his fellow soldiers in Vietnam. But far-leftists like the senator from Massachusetts have little use for inconvenient truths that happen to interfere with their socialistic agenda:
[…] one anti-Vietnam protester who was far more effective than Jane Fonda was John F. Kerry, who in order to further his political ambitions betrayed those he left behind in Vietnam–and 58,000 who came home in body bags, if at all–by siding with the so-called “Vietnam Veterans Against the War” and taking part in the “Winter Soldiers Investigation” in January 1971 in Detroit. There, more than 100 men took turns denouncing America and saying it was standard practice for U.S. soldiers to commit rape, murder, and other war crimes in Vietnam. Later, it was disclosed that many of Kerry’s “veterans” were total imposters, who if they had served in uniform at all were often mechanics and clerks in places like South Carolina and Germany, far away from Vietnam. Kerry then went before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and told these same kinds of stories, portraying Americans who served in Vietnam as horrible monsters.
[…] in terms of betraying America, “Hanoi Jane” was second-string as compared to “Hanoi John” Kerry, who admitted to Congress that he knew that he had probably broken the law when he went to Paris and met with the North Vietnamese and Viet Cong (“Provisional Revolutionary Government”) delegations. I don’t know what he told them, but it clearly did not discourage them from continuing their aggression against their neighbors. And, I might add, Kerry was correct that it was unlawful–indeed, it was a felony (18 U.S.C. 953). [From Honoring A Traitor, by former P.O.W. Michael Benge]
Just what are the latest “absurd notions” that have gotten the senator’s designer drawers in such a wad? Why, according to Greta Van Susteren, they happen to be anything with which the infallible Mr. K. disagrees:
Let me get this straight… he doesn’t think it is right to give “equal time and or balance” to a position he does not agree with?? or to book guests with opinions other than his own?? Really?? You got to be kidding! So, according to him, we are to only air HIS thoughts and his positions?
That’s about the size of it, Greta. Like all would-be totalitarians, John Kerry cannot tolerate dissent—unless, of course, it’s his own.
