The Confederacy and Vietnam Veterans

by lewwaters

“American by Birth, Southern by the Grace of God”

Black Confederate Soldiers 8I have no idea of the origin of the above saying, it has been around for a very long time and likely adapted from some other saying. But, it pretty much sums up the deep feelings of many Americans born and raised in the Southern States of America.

It also is a target of much ridicule from many Americans born and raised in the Northern States who simply do not understand the attitudes and feelings of those many Southerners with their attachment to their birthplace.

Nowhere can this be better seen than in the last few days as following the murder of nine innocent people at a Church in Charleston South Carolina and the focus being placed on a small flag representing the Confederacy in many people’s minds.

Why Many Vietnam Vets Are Boycotting ‘The Butler’

by lewwaters

Jane Fonda MugshotIt is being reported how many Vietnam Veterans are both boycotting and calling on others to boycott the Lee Daniels movie, the Butler, leaving many, mostly younger people who weren’t yet born or who were too young to recall those days asking why.

I hope this post helps those of you to understand as well as join us in boycotting this movie, also under fire for specious representation of Ronald Reagan.

WHY WE BOYCOTT HANOI JANE

Excerpt of an undated speech Hanoi Jane Fonda gave at U.C. Berkeley in the early 1970’s, where she praises the Communist North Vietnamese and students in attendance applaud upon hearing her gleeful announcement of 34 American B-52’s being shot down by the Communist North Vietnamese. That would be a potential 170 American Servicemen dying. Is it any wonder why so many of us Vietnam Veterans despise this person?

Veterans: Standing Up For the Troops and America

by lewwaters

The 2004 elections saw what can happen when retired Veterans band together to expose one of their own standing on a false image as a hero when they are anything but. We know them as the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth, later changed to the Swift boat Veterans and POWs for truth as a group of dedicated former Prisoners of war joined them to expose Massachusetts then junior Senator, John F’in Kerry, noted for bugging out of Vietnam after a brief time in country, fabricating as much as he could for a chest full of unearned medals to stand on for future political causes.

In spite of continual criticisms, attacks and demeaning coverage from the Jurassic Media and false allegations of being a Republican front group, the guys prevailed in exposing Kerry for the poseur he is and for his anti-military antics in the early 1970’s, including a lengthy so-called testimony before the Fulbright Commission where he lied through his teeth about our efforts in Vietnam, throwing Vietnam Veterans under the bus. Vietnam Veterans who returned the favor in 2004 by opposing his candidacy by as high as 80% of us.

Cry Me a River Hanoi Jane. Still Blaming Vietnam Veterans?

by lewwaters

Not exactly how I like to begin a Sunday morning, but in reading today’s emails I ran across Jane Fonda: QVC axed my appearance over politics wherein the dried up old prune, Jane Fonda, aka Hanoi Jane for her anti-war activities and stabbing Vietnam Veterans in back is upset over QVC cancelling her appearance to hawk her book, Prime Time.

The fiery supporter of communism years ago, who has made several Millions of Dollars through the capitalist system she condemned now claims, “this has gone on far too long, this spreading of lies about me! None of it is true. NONE OF IT!” on her personal blogsite.

She further claims, “I love my country. I have never done anything to hurt my country or the men and women who have fought and continue to fight for us” and “Most people don’t buy into the far right lies.”

Really, Jane? Far right? It’s been Vietnam Veterans, the very ones you now say you never did anything against that have been holding you accountable all of these decades. We are nothing more than far right liars in your book?

Well, screw you, you dried up old lying bitch! We remember well what you did, when you did it and how it affected us. We recall your activities in enticing soldiers to desert. We recall your ill fated and major flop of a movie, FTA.

We’re well aware of the email circulated years ago peppered with lies in order to discredit the truths about your treasonous activities.
