The Real Traitors

Neil Boortz, featured speaker at this year’s LP convention, in a rant criticizing John Kerry for having the gall to protest the Vietnam War after Kerry suffered multiple wounds in the war, calls Jane Fonda a traitor who is responsible for the death of American service members.

I have no love for “Hanoi Jane.” However, I would expect a “libertarian” like Boortz to understand that the ones really responsible for the deaths of the young Americans in Vietnam are LBJ, Robert McNamara, and the politicians whose cowardly allowed Johnson to lie us into war — just like politicians like former Veteran for Peace Kerry cowardly rubber-stamped Bush’s usurpation of the power to declare war in Iraq.
