(Fake) War hero John Kerry slandered (genuine) war hero Felix Rodriguez

kerryKerry_Ortegakerry2

During solemn hearings on the floor of the U.S. Senate investigating drugs and terrorism a swarthy Hispanic who landed on U.S. shores with the clothes on his back and was graciously put on the path to U.S. citizenship repeatedly insulted a U.S. Senator who was also a highly decorated war veteran, an Ivy League graduate and a scion of a wealthy and politically-connected American family. The smartmouthed Latino was accused of drug-running and money-laundering to finance terrorists. He was testifying under oath –sneeringly and with a heavy Spanish accent-- upon a subpoena by lawmakers of the nation that had shown him unlimited generosity.

Mere minutes into the confrontation the swarthy Latino’s arrogance, testy rebuttals and steely stare had reduced the lanky New England millionaire-aristocrat to nervous stuttering between shifty glances.

Just the thing to get those Teabillies and Red-State yahoos to briefly drop their guns and Bibles grab their tar, feathers, torches, pitchforks and rope, right? Then bawl for the uppity Latino’s head! Right?

Just the thing to warm the hearts of America’s “party of diversity,” right? Just the thing to delight those enemies of the “one-percenter” and “champion of Hispanics” right?

Here was “Yes we can!” (Si se Puede!) with bells on! Right?

HAH! Think again. The accused “Latino”, you see, was Cuban-American freedom-fighter, Che Guevara captor (and Republican) Felix Rodriguez. The accuser was Senator John Kerry. The setting was the 1987 "Subcommittee on Terrorism, Narcotics, and International Operations," shortly known as “The Kerry Committee” which became the opening act for what shortly came to be known as the “Iran-Contra Hearings.”

So the reactions were exactly reversed. The liberal lynch–mob (Democrats/Media) hailed the New England (inherited) millionaire and bawled for the uppity “Latino“ refugee to be (figuratively) strung up-- and burned afterwards for good measure. Only the liberals’ torches and pitchforks were missing. Some background:

    Kerry's chin is abnormal (and hideous). Has he had it fixed, or does he just avoid being photographed at certain angles? That could explain his excruciatingly groomed hair, as a way to compensate for the creepy chin.

    And doesn’t Jane look like the part she chose to play? That’s all these Hollywood clowns really are, players. But yes, given their line of work, it figures. Besides, it’s not their fault our society is besotted with celebrity and willing to give practically any famous cretin WAY too much attention. As I see it, if people have significant performing talent, fine, they’re welcome to put it out there, but they’re not, repeat, NOT entitled to presume beyond their area of competence.
