|Beck Slams WaPo on Romney Hairdo Piece While Remaining Silent on Kerry, Clinton and Obama’s Past

How seriously could a media outlet the scale of the Washington Post take the vetting process if it deems a haircut that nobody can remember — including the alleged “victim’s” family — sufficient enough “dirt” to destroy the credibility of a presidential candidate? Moreover, how could a purportedly reputable news outlet do so while having failed to report on treasonous incidents that were perpetuated by at least three past Democratic candidates? In this context, the Washington Post article flies in the face of reason and logic and some might argue, is an insult to those who take the vetting process seriously.
Meantime, back in Paris…
John Kerry’s reputation among war veterans as a “traitor” is well known. After returning from Vietnam to pursue a Congressional career, the member of the New England elite testified in 1971 before Sen. J. William Fulbright’s Foreign Relations Committee to display his new “dovish” sensibilities and solidify himself as the Democratic candidate to beat. As Blackwell noted, at the time of the hearing, Kerry wore half his uniform and all of his medals in what was clearly a calculated political move. What could be a greater affront to military than debasing its very uniform, for which decades of tradition and symbolism are interwoven? Perhaps delivering a testimony against fellow soldiers that spawned the term “baby killers”…and Kerry did that too.
On second thought, however, there could be yet another affront perpetrated by John Kerry that is on par or if not worse than defiling the uniform and accusing U.S. soldiers of violating the Geneva Convention: Meeting with members of the Vietcong while in Paris in 1970 (again, five years after a heinous Romney allegedly played coiffeur in the schoolyard). Blackwell notes that the Post did cover this story,”but only on page A8, and only in the context of reporting on a Swift Boat Veterans for Truth ad attacking Kerry.”
Yes, in 1970, John and Julia Kerry traveled to Paris where John met with Madam Win Thi Binh, the Foreign Minister of the Provisional Revolutionary Government of Vietnam (PRG) — the political wing of the Vietcong — and with representatives of Hanoi who were in Paris for the peace talks.
After his liaison with enemy (a.k.a. “treason”), that same year Kerry joined Vietnam Veterans Against the War where he became an outspoken critic of his fellow soldiers and delivered speeches alongside famed anti-war activist, Jane Fonda.
All of this transpired while American POWs were tortured (a violation of the Geneva Convention, by the way) by the very Communists Kerry chose to engage in Paris. He remained silent on the atrocities committed by the Vietcong and so has, in large part, the mainstream press.
