    Seems that the "party of inclusion" isn't too interested in hearing what Vietnamese refugees have to say about the hero of North Viet Nam. This article brings to light the fact that US soldiers were not the only ones to suffer from kerry's false and reckless statements.

    I don't know how that sorry bastard keeps from cutting his own throat when he shaves in the morning. Oops - yes I do know. To feel shame or remorse one has to have a conscience.

    "If you want to be president, you have to talk to everybody in America, and that is what we are going to do," Sen. John Kerry declared last July, when he spoke before the NAACP. It was a dig against President George W. Bush, who had declined an invitation to speak to that organization.
    But there's no way Kerry will ever speak to America's 1.2 million Vietnamese-Americans, most of whom live in California. Many of California's Vietnamese-Americans will be in Washington, D.C., today to join with Vietnam Veterans Against Kerry, Swift Boat Veterans for Truth and many thousands of other veterans in a nationwide protest.

    ..........................

    Kerry lionized Ho Chi Minh, ignored Soviet support of the NVA and accused the U.S. of being "paranoid about the so-called communist monolith." Asked by a questioning senator in 1971 what would be the effects of an immediate U.S. withdrawal from South Vietnam, Kerry responded: "Having done what we have done to that country, we have an obligation to offer sanctuary to the perhaps 2,000, 3,000 people who might face political assassination or something else."

    That same week, he appeared on the Dick Cavett show. "There'd be no interest on the part of the Vietnamese to start massacring people after the U.S. has pulled out," Kerry told Cavett.

    To this day, Kerry has never disavowed or apologized for those statements. Kerry has never admitted how dead wrong he was.

    As in 3 million dead.

    This is a big deal. Last year, the state GOP and many county GOPs voted to recognize the South Vietnamese flag as the official flag of the Vietnamese refugees. There was a big article in the paper from the Vietnamese attache saying something to the effect that doing so would hurt US-Vietnam relations. But we did it anyway.
    Vietnamese in America naturally tend to be Republicans. If John Kerry's candidacy pushes 3 million of them to the polls to vote for Bush, that's great news!
