Is John F. Kerry a patriot?
Yes, he served in the Vietnam War. He was awarded three purple hearts for wounds, a bronze star, and a silver star. No one is calling him a coward; to face an enemy under fire takes courage and he’s been there, done that. Got it.
But it’s what he’s done with his life since then that makes many people doubt he’s a true patriot. In fact, some believe he may even be an enemy of the state.
You recall that “Iran nuclear deal” in which he conspired with Barack Obama to pay a terrorist-sponsoring state $400 million in ransom money (against American policy) while providing Tehran billions of dollars in sanctions relief — all while doing nothing to stop Tehran from eventually building nuclear weapons, right?
Well, Kerry was recently outed for engaging in what the Boston Globe mislabeled as “unusual shadow diplomacy” — he was meeting in secret with his Iranian pal, Foreign Minister Javad Zarif to ‘save’ the deal as President Donald Trump was considering pulling out of it (which he did).
As The National Sentinel reported:
In an interview with the paper, Michael O’Hanlon, a foreign policy expert at the Left-leaning Brookings Institute, said that it may be normal for former U.S. officials to remain in contact with foreign diplomats and leaders, but it’s highly unusual for them to be lobbying for a specific policy position.
Let’s call this what it was: Improper meddling in U.S. foreign affairs in an attempt to undermine the current administration. In another time many people would have considered what Kerry was doing an act of treason.
But beyond that, Kerry’s Iranian pal Zarif is no friend of America, either. In fact, as Israeli news site YNetNews reported, Zarif was recently videoed chanting “Death to America!” along with “Death to Britain!” and “Death to Israel!”
What a guy.
The site noted:
Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, considered a moderate by many, was caught on tape Thursday joining a crowd in a chant calling for the destruction of Iran’s enemies—among them the US, UK and Israel.
The chant broke out after a speech delivered by Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei held in Tehran.
The crowd is then heard chanting “Death to America,” “Death to Britain” and “Death to Israel,” all while Zarif is seen smiling and mouthing the words shouted by the participants.
The term “moderate Iranian leader” is a misnomer by the way; it’s used by people like Kerry and the Pravda media as a way of hiding the fact that Iranian leaders are, by nature, extremists who support and defend terrorism — against the U.S. and against American allies. As the now-busted Zarif proves. (Related: John Kerry’s Iran nuclear deal buddy, Mohammad Javad Zarif, caught on camera shouting ‘Death to America!’.)
So why does Kerry support people like that? Because he’s always supported those kinds of people.
When he returned from Vietnam he hooked up with a Left-wing anti-war group known as Vietnam Veterans Against the War, a group that concocted a sham report known as the “Winter Soldier Investigation” in which members made bogus claims about U.S. military atrocities that occurred every day. It was a sham, a lie, a disgrace.
Kerry even went so far as to throw his medals over the White House fence in ‘protest.’
And through the years as a Democratic member of the Senate, he would go on to undermine Republican administrations, rub elbows with Marxists and anti-American dictators like Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. He tried to subvert the Reagan White House in its dealings with communist-aligned rebels in South America by going behind the administration’s back to make deals he had no business — or authority — to make.
John Kerry is a lot of things but based on many of his actions, “patriot” isn’t something that seems to fit him.
