Did you all watch Obama and McCain at the Saddleback Church forum over the weekend? McCain was impressive... especially when he spoke of his years as a prisoner of war in Vietnam.
But did you know there’s a group of Vietnam veterans that hates John McCain? They loathe him. And they don’t want him to be president.
They are Vietnam Veterans Against John McCain. And no one in the mainstream media is bothering to talk about them.
These folks accuse McCain of having “collaborated” with his Communist captors.
They say he is a “spoiled son of military privilege” who was a lousy pilot in the first place.
They say McCain was subjected to Soviet “brain perversion techniques” that might’ve caused a lifetime of “mental health issues.”
Now consider: The Vietnam vets who attacked Democrat John Kerry four years ago became a dominant force in the campaign. The Vietnam vets who attack Republican John McCain... are a non-issue.
Below is a 4½-minute video of Col. Earl Hopper (U.S. Army, ret.), who died last month. Listen to him and you’ll understand what the Vietnam Veterans Against John McCain are all about.
