Can I break through your complacency?
Do you have compassion
for the people suffering in this war?
I'm telling you this war is a crime!
I'm not as bitter about my wounds...
Who do you think you are?
Can I help you, sir?
You can't come through.
You can't come through, sir.
I have a pass.
Who are these people?
You can't stop us!
You can't stop me!
You can't stop me!
Why are you here tonight?
What do you have to say?
My name's Ron Kovic.
I'm a Vietnam veteran.
I'm here to say this war is wrong,
that this society lied to me and my brothers...
Why don't you shut up?
It deceived the people in this country.
It tricked them into going 13,000 miles
to fight a war against a poor peasant people
who have a proud history of resistance,
who have been struggling for their own independence
for 1,000 years-- the Vietnamese people.
I can't--I can't find the words to express
how the leadership of this government sickens me.
Now, people say...
people say if you don't love America,
then get the hell out.
Well, I love America,
but when it comes to the government,
it stops right there.
The government is a bunch of corrupt thieves.
They are rapists and robbers.
We are here to say
we don't have to take it anymore.
We are here to tell the truth.
They're killing our brothers in Vietnam.
We want them to hear the truth.
Traitor!
What are you, a communist?
Is this what we get,
spit in the face?
Is this what we get?
Is this what we get, sir? Spit in the face?
