Vets Demand an Apology From Swiftboaster Blumenthal

The truth came out about Dem phony Richard Blumenthal this week. He never served in Vietnam. He never was captain of the Harvard Swim Team. He never even was a member of the Harvard Swim Team.

After he was caught lying about serving in Vietnam, Blumenthal held a press conference with several veterans standing by his side including another phony.

Following his thorough swiftboating, veterans groups yesterday demanded that the fraud lib Richard Blumenthal apologize.

The VFW released this statement yesterday:

“Those who served in Vietnam or offshore or in neighboring countries rightfully earned all the belated thanks and appreciation our nation can muster. Those who served in uniform during the Vietnam era also deserve our gratitude, which makes Mr. Blumenthal’s claim to be something he is not so outrageous. It diminishes the service of all who served and sacrificed, most especially those whose names are inscribed on the Vietnam Wall. Mr. Blumenthal was considered one of the best friends a veteran could have in Connecticut. It is a true shame that he let a false claim of Vietnam service change that.”

And, Vets for Freedom director Pete Hegseth released a statement saying Blumenthal “never set foot in a combat zone—even though he gladly perpetuated the politically-expedient perception that he had—and should apologize to real Vietnam combat veterans for this gross violation of honor.”
