John Kerry Has a History of Insulting the Military

In 1972 John Kerry filled out a questionnaire for a group called Massachusetts Political Action for Peace. In that questionnaire, he was asked about the military. Here are a few of the things he wrote:

“I am convinced a volunteer army would be an army of the poor and the black and the brown,” Kerry wrote. “We must not repeat the travesty of the inequities present during Vietnam. I also fear having a professional army that views the perpetuation of war crimes as simply ‘doing its job.’

“Equally as important, a volunteer army with our present constitutional crisis takes accountability away from the president and put the people further from control over military activities,” he wrote. WBAL

Notice that Kerry was convinced an all volunteer Army would be the poor, the black and the brown. His statement about war crimes also illustrates that he believes professional Armies perpetrate war crimes. He did not say he fears they would be more prone to or might have more incentive, the sentence states it as a given in the premise. Kerry viewed a professional Army as criminals.

I also notice that Kerry mentions a Constitutional crisis. Is there never a time for Democrats when there is not a Constitutional crisis? Oh, yes I forgot. They only see a Constitutional crisis when Republicans occupy the White House. All other times are good for them.

John Kerry disrespected and dishonored the troops upon his return from Vietnam when he protested and called them rapists and killers. He again showed the low regard he had for them when he filled out this questionnaire. Is it any wonder he continues to disrespect and dishonor our troops today? Kerry loathes the military and he has demonstrated that since he was a long haired protester. He only uses his service for political gain and to excuse himself when he insults the real heroes.

He is a disgrace and his past is once again showing his true colors.

Here is the complete questionnaire. Read it and you will learn a lot about Kerry. Considering Halloween was several days ago, this is a fitting story of frightful answers.

    The pure truth!!

    I have never heard it put this way. LOL

    John Kerry is a disgrace to this country. I really hope his latest rants have done him in. I know up here in NH a lot of Democrats are very upset with him; and judging by the forums at the Boston Globe, man in MA are ticked off with him as well.
