• History is written by the winners, in this case a loser gives it his best shot.

I know this isn’t new but Rush brought it up yesterday.

Sen. John Kerry said during a C-SPAN appearance that fears of a bloodbath after the US withdrawal from Vietnam never materialized. He says he’s met survivors of the “reeducation camps” who are thriving in modern Vietnam. An award-winning investigation by the Orange County Register concludes that at least 165,000 people perished in the camps.

Okay… what planet is this loser living on? It’s amazing the way libs can re-write history to fit their agenda. This should be jumped on my the MSM but we all know it won’t be. This kind of statement made to the masses is as damaging as an IED. Most of the world is too stupid to read or to even follow up on things they see on the MSM so an out and out lie like this when not debunked could be fatal. Click the pic below to see the video.

Let me just say to the first part of your question with respect to boat people and killing, everybody predicted a massive bloodbath in Vietnam. There was not a massive bloodbath in Vietnam. There were reeducation camps, and they weren’t pretty and, you know, nobody, you know, likes that kind of outcome. But on the other hand, I’ve met lot of people today who were in those education camps, who are thriving in the Vietnam of today.

    The names on the list existed because there were surviving family members who went through hell to make sure the names of their love ones survive in legacy. It is estimated that a more significant number of ppl simply disappeared under the banner of “re-education camp”.

    What’s worth noting here is the fact that for each prisoner that went to the re-educate camp, they brought a far worst fate upon every members of his/her extended family that live on the outside. The communist is the greatest machine of propaganda and de-evolution. They don’t believe in unnecessary bloodbath. It’s better to enslave than to waste a bullet. The fact of life for those families that have been enduring their policy of revenge is nothing short of unending nightmare.

    Sen. Kerry is too far removed from reality of years gone by. I wonder how he is going to draw his policy for the future without the intimate knowledge of recent outcomes.

    Go Ron Paul ’08… 🙂

    Thanks for the comment. I’m glad this one finally got one! I saw somoething on TV just a couple of days ago that of the 15,000 prisoners that went in only 8 walked out. Disgusting, and the leftist communists want to run this country. The communist track record is pretty bad. I can’t believe people in this country thing socialism might be a good idea.

    I’m just not sure about the Ron Paul stuff…
