I’ve written about this before, and it’s nice to be proven to be so completely and totally right yet again:
John F. Kerry almost became president running on the basis of his alleged heroism in Vietnam. Thanks to the efforts of a group of truth-tellers, the Swiftboat Veterans for Truth, the serious holes in the fantasy narrative propounded by the Kerry campaign came to the attention of enough Americans that John Kerry was not the first faux-Irish President of the United States.
One of Kerry’s enablers in propounding his imaginary heroism was a man named Wade Sanders, who himself held a Silver Star, and who introduced Kerry to the Democratic Convention. Scott Swett, who was central to the unraveling of the Kerry storyline, tells us that the Kerry enabler has been exposed for what he is. His Winter Soldier site has the details:
John Kerry was introduced at the 2004 Democratic National Convention by Wade Sanders, a retired Navy Captain and former Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Navy who served as a Swift Boat officer in Vietnam. Like Kerry, Sanders was the recipient of a Silver Star for gallantry in action. During the 2004 campaign, Sanders functioned as Kerry lead attack dog against the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth, repeatedly denouncing the veterans on the air as liars and comparing them to Nazi propagandists.
Wade Sanders is now in Federal prison, serving a 37-month sentence for possessing child pornography. Now the Navy Times reports that Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus has revoked Sanders’ Silver Star. The highly unusual decision appears unrelated to Sanders’ felony conviction. A Navy spokesman cited “subsequently determined facts and evidence surrounding both the incident for which the award was made and the processing of the award itself.” John Kerry has to be hoping this doesn’t become a trend.
As one might imagine, the media has ignored this story. Even the Navy Times declined to post its own article online.
Update: Here is the Sanders sentencing memorandum. Horrific.
Hero my ass (and wickedly and pathetically, some poor kid’s ass too).
The Swift Boat Veterans for Truth (that is, the 250 other Swift Boat veterans who WEREN’T child molesters) did this country a great service in providing the facts to respond to all of John Kerry’s and his enablers’ lies.
The depraved and dishonest mainstream media chose to believe this pervert child molester pile of slime over those 250 decent men.
John Kerry – who slandered his own fellow Viet Nam veterans as a bunch of war criminals – once threw his silver star away at a protest. He doesn’t deserve his medal any more than Wade Sanders deserved his.
Liberals just make me sick.
For the record, John Kerry was dishonorably discharged for collaborating with the enemy, and his bogus medals were stripped. The only reason that status didn’t remain permanent was because Jimmy Carter (the Tool-in-Chief until Obama eclipsed him in that regard) gave him an amnesty along with all the other un-American draft dodgers and malcontents.
Wade Sanders worked for the Clinton administration (“I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Miss Lewinsky” because “It depends on what the meaning of the word ‘is’ is”) and maintained that his motives for possessing child pornography were “pure and innocent.” Just like his endorsement at the Democratic National Convention for John Kerry.
Btw, allow me to briefly mention another pervert Democrat biting the dust today. At least the Democrats seemed to have learned at least a small degree of decency after the recent and vile Anthony Weiner disgrace.
