John Kerry: Racist
— Ace

See if you can follow this:

Charlie Rangel assures us that almost all of those "stuck in Iraq" are black and Hispanic.

John Kerry informs us that people who don't make themselves smart and get educated will be "stuck in Iraq."

Ergo, taken together:

Blacks and Hispanics are stupid and uneducated.

Outrage.

If Kerry showed up at my house trick-treating tonight, I'd give the sorry ass sonofabitch a mouth full of chiclets.

That's funny. The news is always interviewing some white soldier in Iraq.


I'm so confused.

3 Layers Ace. Its all about layers. What a load of shit. Ifn you look at military demographics, whites still out number other racial groups just as males still outnumber females.

If you weren't going to vote next week, please reconsider. hanoi john is the "truth speaker" for the dhimmis.

7 OT: It's halloween in the hood. The good thing about living near, but not in the hood is the lower level of fear of crime. The bad part is that you have to spend a ton of money on halloween candy as everyone that lives in the hood feels the same way and comes to your neighborhood to trick or treat. About a hundred kids at my door so far and only two that I recognize. No big deal, but what's up with all of the parents wanting candy, too?

15 This wouldn't have happened if I was president.

Posted by: John Kerry at October 31, 2006 02:50 PM (1n1ga)

16 Kerry meant to insult Bush, and I believe that is truly what he meant to do. It's true what he said. He actually fought in Vietnam, and Bush and Dick Cheney and Rumsfeld never served. Now I saw his remarks and I can understand why people would be offended, but he explained today that he botched a joke about Bush, and I think he's telling the truth.

Posted by: ryan at October 31, 2006 03:04 PM (ai6A/)

17 ryan, George Bush was a pilot in the National Guard. Don Rumsfeld was a Navy pilot. Dick Cheney spent exactly as much time in the military as Bill Clinton.

Who does your fact checking or do you make things up as you go like most on the left?

Posted by: JackStraw at October 31, 2006 03:08 PM (t+mja)

18

Just for the sake of argument, Ryan, let's pretend you're right. Tell me, though: if he hadn't fucked the joke up, how would it have been told in a manner less offensive to the troops?


And, given that Bush was a better student than he, how might he have told such a joke about Bush and made it, well, funny?


Posted by: Patton at October 31, 2006 03:16 PM (ItE79)

19 i didn't know rumsfeld was a navy pilot. but being a pilot in the national guard is a world away from serving in vietnam. now that's just common sense. i never voted for bill clinton, and i didn't mention him either. the fact is kerry gets high marks from veterans organizations in terms of his support for veterans. kerry was attacking bush, not the troops. even if you don't like the guy, and i never really liked kerry that much, can't you at least consider the entirety of his remarks on the matter and give him the benefit of the doubt?

Posted by: ryan at October 31, 2006 03:16 PM (ai6A/)

20 I have to agree with ryan that he meant to insult President Bush. But the poor bastard is just so used to attacking men in uniform he lost track of the original target and fired on the next thing that shot through his pea-brain.

Do you really think that excuses the jackass, ryan?

Posted by: The Black Republican at October 31, 2006 03:19 PM (Edy/C)

21 can't you at least consider the entirety of his remarks on the matter and give him the benefit of the doubt?

uh, no. I consider the entirety of his history of lying, and give him nothing.

23 can't you at least consider the entirety of his remarks on the matter and give him the benefit of the doubt?

I was almost willing to do that, until he issued that atrocious written statement and held that press conference.  Those are not the actions of someone who is contrite about messing up a joke.  They are the actions of a man too stubborn to admit he offended people and is too small to apologize.

24 They are the actions of a man too stubborn to admit he offended people and is too small to apologize.

Bingo.

Posted by: The Black Republican at October 31, 2006 03:32 PM (Edy/C)

25 well, i liked his remarks and his fuckyou attitude to the armchair chickenhawks who were attacking him, slu. he didn't have to apologize because he explained he was speaking of bush, not the troops. i.e. that only a dummy would have gotten us stuck in iraq like we are, the dummy bush. now that's what he meant. of all people, you don't think kerry knows that intelligent and educated people serve in the military. honestly, give me a break. when i was at harvard, we had many people in the rotc. and in my high school in georgia we had many, many people in the rotc. some of them were my friends. i have never been in the military, but i know plenty of intelligent people are in the armed services. kerry actually served in combat, and you're going to tell me he doesn't realize intelligent people served in the armed forces? you are putting partisanship before common sense if you think so. when you are speaking in public every day, once in a while you are bound to misspeak, to choke and say something other than what you meant. i've done it often enough in asking for directions, and i can't imagine how the stress of speaking constantly in front of cameras would flummox me. bush has misspoke plently of times and even though we may joke about it we know that he loves his country and is doing what he thinks is right, however wrong he may be. now why can't you be as generous to kerry.
you know he was insulting bush, not the troops.

28 "you know he was insulting bush, not the troops."

Actually, given the man's record, I don't know that he wasn't insulting the troops. He seems to have a history if insulting the armed forces, what that whole "winter soldier" thing.

Posted by: Achmed at October 31, 2006 03:42 PM (j4t+e)

29 Ryan, paragraph breaks are your friend.

How hard would it have been for Kerry to say the following:

“I realize that my remarks could have been interpreted as a criticism
of our brave men and women now serving in Iraq. That was not what I
intended to say, and I apologize if anyone was offended by my lack of
clarity in that statement.  But let me be clear about this - George W. Bush made a mistake getting us into Iraq and...blah...blah...blah..."

Such a statement would have been gracious and would have had the effect of settling the controversy.  Instead of choosing this path, however, Kerry chose to go on the attack, thus digging himself deeper into a rhetorical hole.

30 you are putting partisanship before common sense if you think so

31 Well, ryan, I'm sure the cameras would flummox you, as well as bright lights and shiny objects, as you are a window-licking pudding brain. Jesus, how much intellectual dishonesty and outright empty headed mush can fit into one post?

Posted by: UGAdawg at October 31, 2006 03:48 PM (alGm/)

32 "when you are speaking in public every day, once in a while you are bound to misspeak, to choke and say something other than what you meant."

Is that you, macaca? ryan, give it a rest. I would be willing to bet that most people think Kerry was trying to slam Bush. This time. But Kerry has a long and ignominious history of talking shit about the miltary, he has flat accused them of committing atrocities many times.

When you have a history of talking shit about the troops you claim to love, you have no room for error. Capice?

Oh, and you didn't know many students at Harvard who were in the ROTC. It was not even a school sanctioned activity. Harvard students had to go to MIT and do their ROTC service in the MIT program. Hell, they wouldn't even pay MIT for the program because of the military's policy on gays in the military and relied on private, anonymous donors.

You, of all people, should know that.

Posted by: JackStraw at October 31, 2006 03:49 PM (t+mja)

33 well, i liked his remarks and his fuckyou attitude to the armchair chickenhawks who were attacking him

You mean, like John McCain?  He might be the first "real" veteran that has demanded that Kerry apologize, but I doubt he will be the last.

i can't imagine how the stress of speaking constantly in front of cameras would flummox me.

And yet, this man deserves to be President, even though he may get "flummoxed" when speaking in public?  If that's the case, perhaps he should consider another line of work.  Oh...wait...Work?  John Kerry hasn't held a real job in his whole life.  Guess that means he is already in the only place where that kind of resume can't hurt him.

bush has misspoke plently of times and even though we may joke about it
we know that he loves his country and is doing what he thinks is right,
however wrong he may be. now why can't you be as generous to kerry.


you know he was insulting bush, not the troops.

The funny thing here is that Bush (note the capitalization of the name, college boy) is not usually insulting others when he misspeaks.  Insults are all Kerry and his gang have. And they can't even get those right.

Nothing says "loser" better than someone who only has insults to throw at the man who has bettered him in competition.

34 i know they had to go to mit, but they were still harvard students. i remember going to mit with a friend of mine and seeing an acquaintance i knew from harvard there. there is a reason for that, and i have nothing to do with it. i had no say in the matter. i have no responsibility for what the harvard administration decided to do many years before i was there.
and for your information, i think harvard is full of stuck-up, self-important, wanna-be bureaucrats. i never saw one instance of intellectual courage while i was there. people there are more concerned with their gpa's and investment banking recruitment chances than the larger world in which we live.

Posted by: ryan at October 31, 2006 03:56 PM (ai6A/)

35 and, of course, "bettered" actually equals "bested"

now back to your regularly scheduled discussion.

Posted by: wiserbud at October 31, 2006 03:58 PM (56ssE)

36 Ryan, those "armchair chickenhawks" attacking him...

You mean McCain? Or the American Legion? Or AMVETS (the American Veteran's Association)?

Which of these groups of Veterans were the amchair chickenhaws again? I missed the definition change to "chickenhawk" = "whoever the hell I feel like calling one right now".

Oh, you were just thinking of a small subset of the people criticizing him? So was I. Any answers to why non-armchair non-chickenhawks also were criticizing that jackassery of his?

But yeah, he was insulting Bush's education. Fortunately he got considerably worse grades than Bush, so that makes perfect sense for a plan of attack. Hunh?

Then he botched it, and the words he used insulted the military... whoops. Then rather than apologize and correct he claimed it was just a right-wing attack. Then he decided maybe he needed to clarify, but didn't need to apologize.

Because he's tough, strong, layered, nuanced, and a jackass.

I dunno, maybe you don't apologize when you misspeak and accidentally insult a large group of people. Where I come from that was considered polite and mannerly, but I guess Kerry doesn't need manners.

Posted by: Gekkobear at October 31, 2006 04:02 PM (09QG8)

37 wiserbud, you're correct, but too late to be prescient.
"He might be the first "real" veteran that has demanded that Kerry apologize, but I doubt he will be the last."

American Legion and AMVETS (commander of each) have demanded apologies for the vets in each organization.

That's a hell of a lot of vets.

Some non-political individuals, but those two groups make the larger point quite well.

Posted by: Gekkobear at October 31, 2006 04:05 PM (09QG8)

38 I dunno, maybe you don't apologize when you misspeak and accidentally insult a large group of people.

If you haven't notices, ryan intentionally insults large groups of people, never apologizes, and then pretends it never happened.

41 oh boy..My opinion is....
About 40 years ago during our last draft.If you were a poor student or had no college defer.( or a person of color )There was a very high chance you were going to Vietnam. After that crap, We as a nation choose to staff our military with the brightest and best ( many young americans join to further thier education) I'm damn proud of the United States Military, Our few bad apples..( and there will always be a few) would be generals in other armies. Mr. Kerry, Come and join the rest of us in 2006.

Posted by: Billy Missle at October 31, 2006 04:14 PM (NuiDp)

42 jj, i am really sorry for insulting you. i promise i'll be calm and measured in my posts from now on. you can't see a difference already?
i really was acting silly and stupid the other night. i misunderstood what someone meant and was really upset by my misunderstanding.
anyway, i don't think misspeaking constitutes an insult. what is required is clarification, not an apology.

Posted by: ryan at October 31, 2006 04:14 PM (ai6A/)

43 People gave you clarification (not that it should have been necessary) but you con'td to insult and cuss everyone out. Since when is a string of swear words "misspeaking"? Anyway, you're cyclic. In a few days you'll go batfrisch again. It's a given. I wouldn't count on people tolerating your behavior much longer, though.

Posted by: jj at October 31, 2006 04:25 PM (AdvuV)

44 Ryan, Kerry fucked up. He has a history of degrading military members, so this fits the type. If he would have chosen to explain his remarks and apologize to the military, it would have been one thing. But he didn't, he chose to go on the attack and call people like John McCain chickenhawks.

Oh, and by the way, ryan, there were National Guard troops in S.E. Asia during the Vietnam War, just as the National Guard is serving in Iraq and Afganistan now. You need to check out the facts before you comment around here, these morons are pretty good at catching stuff.

Watch the Military channel, it will expand your mind a bit.

47 Wiserbud, I hope you aren't still mad at me. You've been very kind to me, and your being so angry at me the other day was a rude awakening. I am sorry for disappointing you. I really am going to bite my tongue in future.

I still don't think John Kerry is a racist, soldier-hating asshole. And I've never heard of the Military Channel before. From what I've learned, I belive the Vietnam War was something we shouldn't have gotten ourselves involved in. I don't think there was anything wrong with Kerry critisizing the management and nature of the Vietnam War. We lost the war. Has Vietnam been any kind of enemy to ourselves since then? In balance, I would think any reasonable person would conclude in the negative.

Posted by: ryan at October 31, 2006 04:58 PM (ai6A/)

Oooo, I could never stay mad at you, you little rascal.  Like I said, you have potential.  Back off a little on the vitriol and you might actually enjoy yourself here.

I don't think there was anything wrong with Kerry critisizing the management and nature of the Vietnam War. We lost the war.

You may want to do a little more research on Kerry's "criticism."  It was just a bit more offensive than criticizing the management and the nature of the war.  He flat out accused our soldiers of war crimes and atrocities.  And his efforts as an anti-war agitator can be directly linked to our losing that war. 

Want to take a guess as to why Kerry is honored in Vietnamese war museums?  Here's a hint:  It isn't because of his activities while in country, fighting against them.

Based, I would add, largely on the outright lies of people who were either falsely representing themselves as veterans when they had, in fact, never served or those who told outrageous tales of US war atrocities but suspiciously refused to sign legal affidavits affirming their stories for use in prosecuting the supposed perpetrators of these heinous acts.

John Kerry is the most despicable man in politics today.

61 From what I've learned, I belive the Vietnam War was something we shouldn't have gotten ourselves involved in.

If you've never even heard of TMC, I can see why. The shortest path toward eliminating this deficit of hard knowledge about Vietnam is to read Nixon's book No More Vietnams.

Its a review of the whole episode from the 1950's up to the date the book was written. It may not change your mind, but its going to present you with historical facts and data you've never seen, most of which were completely ignored by the press and many other authors. That is for sure.

Nixon's book is the most comprehensive "one stop summary" of what went on that I've ever seen to date (and I've read a lot of them). I thought I had a good grasp of the Vietnam totality prior to reading Nixon -- I was wrong.

Posted by: Purple Avenger at October 31, 2006 08:42 PM (AuPsg)

62 I must admit that in high school and my American history classes in college, we didn't learn much at all about Vietnam. It appears to be an episode in our history that the educational establishment would rather forget. When I say we didn't learn much about Vietnam, that includes the protests against the war and such, lest you use my statement as an attack on American teachers. It was almost a taboo subject, one way or the other. The teachers certainly did not attack the war, and they didn't really teach us about it, either.

Posted by: ryan at October 31, 2006 09:43 PM (ai6A/)
