DeJa-Vu All Over Again, and Again, and Again………, Still In The Nixon Dirty Tricks Era, Same Ole GOP Only More Corrupt and Dumber!!
As a ‘Nam Vet and Pro-Peace Activist from after till present, these last seven plus years I’ve almost felt like we’ve been in a groundhog type time warp, everything keeps bringing me back to what we already lived through, not just once before, but the past 35 years plus, over and over…….
Today I just caught this:
The group of recent vets, Vets for Freedom, are the ones making this offer.
Since their inception every time I see one of their spokespersons I’m takin back in time to the ,small group like their’s, Nixon years and the couple of supporters, ‘Nam Veterans, that Dickie brought on board, they in recent years became the few called the ‘Swiftboat Veterans’.
Also reminds me, as to paying the college students now, of the paying of some SDS members, back than, to spy on the Anti-war members, especially us ‘Nam Vets and the VVAW leaders like John Kerry.
This is part of what they sent out:
In an email obtained by the Huffington Post, Vets for Freedom field staffer Laura Meyer offered a fraternity at St. Louis University a “sizable donation” – plus free lunch – if it could use their pledges to demonstrate outside the VP debate.
“I was emailing you today,” wrote Meyer, “because I am trying to find people who would be willing to hold up signs for a few hours in the afternoon this Thursday outside the VP debate site. It’s only for a few hours and you can gain a lot from it…. first off, lunch for any guys who agree to volunteer will be on me. Secondly, they will get lots of media attention! My organization did a similar thing in Mississippi last week and a ton of them were on TV. Meaning, the guys could wear their [REDACTED] gear while holding up our signs and get attention for their frat. Also, they will get to hang out with a bunch of really cool Iraq and Afghanistan war veterans.
“Lastly, and here’s the kicker…. if you guys can get us at least 20 volunteers for those few hours, my organization will make a sizable donation to your fraternity. If you use pledges you could look at it as ‘free money and free publicity’. If this sounds like something you may be willing to help us out with, please let me know ASAP!”
Now apparently the National Vets For Freedom are disowning this, seems to be a chapter, but Apparently they did this in Mississippi for the Presidential Debate,
“Obviously this was not a direction from national and we have contacted the Missouri staffers and volunteers and told them it is not appropriate in our policy,” she said. “And those who choose to attend the vice presidential debate should not be compensated.”
As for the payments made for volunteers during the Mississippi presidential debate, Mayka added: “We will be looking into that.”
anyone see them, seems they didn’t get much coverage for their money.
Like I said above: “DeJa-Vu All Over Again, and Again, and Again………, Still In The Nixon Dirty Tricks Era, Same Ole GOP Only More Corrupt and Dumber!!
And as abit of a kicker, those Alaskans holding Rallies to voice their disgust with what they’re finding out about their Gov. are being ‘wingered’ as being paid by the Obama Camp, now these folks coming out up their are Progressives, Conservatives, Independents, wanting answers and not, making a dime!!!!
