Questioning Kerry’s Loyalty
by Judson Cox
25 March 2004
ideology and voting record seem to be in accord with France, a nation that opposes American interests at every turn.
It is ironic that
John F. Kerry calls President Bush’s foreign policy arrogant. Kerry
is the image of arrogance, too rich and important to answer to the voters.
Kerry is more concerned with world opinion than the concerns of America.
Kerry has stated, “I've met foreign leaders who can't go out and say this
publicly, but boy they look at you and say, 'You've got to win this, you've
got to beat this guy, we need a new policy,' things like that." Kerry’s
response to an American voter who asked him to explain his statement was,
“That's not your business, it's mine.”
As Vice President Cheney said, “Senator Kerry speaks often about the need
for international cooperation, and has vowed to usher in a 'golden age of
American diplomacy.' He is fond of mentioning that some countries did not
support America's actions in Iraq. Yet of the many nations that have joined
our coalition -- allies and friends of the United States -- Senator Kerry
speaks with open contempt. Great Britain, Australia, Italy, Spain, Poland
and more than 20 other nations have contributed and sacrificed for the freedom
of the Iraqi people. Senator Kerry calls these countries, quote, 'window
dressing.' They are, in his words, 'a coalition of the coerced and the bribed.'"
It is not without reason that Senator Kerry has become known as the “haughty,
French-looking candidate.” Regardless of his appearance and demeanor,
Kerry’s ideology and voting record is in accord with France, a nation whose
stated goals are to oppose the interests of, and diminish the influence of,
America. He has voted against nearly all of our weapons programs, voted
to undermine our intelligence agencies and cut the funding of our military
at every opportunity – he has made every effort to undermine national security.
Kerry’s post Vietnam service has proven that he will side with America’s
enemies and betray our troops. Not only did the Vietcong credit Kerry’s
“Vietnam Veterans Against the War” with enabling the communists to win, but
Kerry accused American soldiers of war crimes before the United States Congress.
More recently, Kerry voted against funding our soldiers in Iraq. Kerry
explained, “"I actually did vote for the $87 billion before I voted against
it." Kerry’s arrogance is such that he believes the voters too stupid
to understand that a vote against funding our troops is actually a vote against
funding our troops!
Kerry’s aid and comfort to the Vietcong shows that he will side with our enemies, so who are those foreign leaders?
Kim Jong Il, the communist dictator of North Korea, broadcasts Kerry’s speeches on Radio Pyongyang along with his glowing commentary.
Jean Bertrand-Aristide, Haiti's ousted dictator. Kerry told the New York Times he would have intervened to keep Aristide in power.
Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero, Spain’s new anti-war socialist prime minister, has endorsed John Kerry for president.
Mahathir Mohamad, former prime minister of Malaysia, said,
"I think Kerry would be much more willing to listen to the voices of people
and of the rest of the world." Mahathir is a renowned anti-Semite.
Yasser Arafat, whom John Kerry described as a "statesman" and a "role model" in his 1997 book, "The New War."
Presumably Hugo Chavez, the Venezuelan dictator, who opposes President Bush,
and Fidel Castro, whom Kerry has openly praised, are both Kerry boosters
– Kerry won’t say.
It is not an implausible assumption that all of the anti-American, anti-Semitic,
socialist and communist dictators of the world would prefer a Kerry presidency,
as President Bush has shown a willingness and determination to remove their
like from power. At one point John Kerry vowed not to take any action
without United Nations approval.
Since Kerry considers himself above question by average American voters,
I will quote a statement by someone on his own level. "I don't think
any United States senator is going to abandon our troops and recklessly leave
Iraq to whatever follows as a result of simply cutting and running. That's
irresponsible.” That was Kerry on Meet The Press in September
of last year, regarding why he should vote in favor of funding our troops
– the $87 billion he voted for, then against. As in his Vietnam protest
days, Kerry may not have been an open traitor to the United States, but his
interests were certainly in line with our enemies.
