Person of the Month : Ike Boutwell


   "A central Kentucky theater owner who trained pilots during the Vietnam War is refusing to show the nation's top movie, "The Butler" because one of the stars is Jane Fonda who was an outspoken opponent of the conflict.
Boutwell said Fonda's statements and demonstrations against the Vietnam War caused him to view her as a traitor, and he won't show any movie involving her in his theaters.
The Korean War veteran said: "I trained hundreds of pilots to fly, many of whom Ms. Fonda clapped and cheered as they were shot down."
 Ms Fonda, self-proclaimed socialist & admirer of communism*, was more than an outspoken opponent; she went to North Vietnam, was photographed smiling and laughing while sitting on North Vietnamese anti-aircraft guns, the same guns that were shooting down American pilots. She also met with American POWs and told American media they were being well-treated and not tortured. This was blatantly untrue. When the POWs returned home in 1973, they contradicted Hanoi Jane's widely reported statements to which her response was to call these men "hypocrites and liars".

 Note: In the lower left corner are anti-aircraft shells ready to be used to shoot down American planes.


Good for you Mr. Boutwell. 
We don't watch any of Hanoi Jane's movies anywhere, anyhow.

*On November 21, 1970 she told an audience of about 2,000 University of Michigan students, "If you understood what communism was, you would hope, you would pray on your knees that we would some day become communist."  She repeated this at Duke University, adding "I, a socialist, think that we should strive toward a socialist society, all the way to communism.

Barky Obummer, Poser

President-Elect Barky Obummer visited Marines at Kaneohoe Bay during his Hawaiian vacation. He spent about an hour at the dining hall, shaking hands and posing for pictures. 

Sunlen Miller reports:

"As Obama entered the room, it was absent of the regular fanfare of cheering and clapping. The diners were polite, staying seated at their respective tables and waited for the president-elect to come to them to stand up."H/T: Gateway Pundit

It would have been nice if Barky could have found another hour to visit Tripler Army Medical Center in Honolulu. Tripler is the largest military hospital in the Asian and Pacific Rim region.


Hawaii Five-Oops ?

The National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific , located in Punchbowl Crater just north of Honolulu, is the final resting place of over 30,000 veterans of World Wars I and II, Korea, and Vietnam.



And it is the site of an unforgivable show of disrespect to not only every veteran interred there, especially the ones whose graves were trod all over, but also to the 23 veterans who survived the December 7, 1941, attack on Pearl Harbor who were special guests that day.
