Vietnamese-American Newspapers Savage Kerry
Various Vietnamese American Newspapers | 2/15/2004 | Self

Posted on 02/15/2004 9:58:40 AM PST by angkor

Just an FYI that the local Vietnamese-American newspapers in Northern Virginia are running front page coverage of Kerry's VVAW activities.

Sorry my translation capabilities are so feeble, otherwise I'd post some of the articles here (and none of the papers have web sites for electronic text to run through online translators).

Suffice it to say that the papers are quite critical of Kerry. One paper has two photos of Jane Fonda from her 1972 Hanoi trip on the section A2 jump. Two papers run the Newsmax.com Kerry/Fonda photo on the front page, above the fold.

If anyone would know about Kerry's alleged "atrocities against Vietnamese civilians", it would be the Vietnamese themselves, particularly those who came to America after 1975 (to wit, several million). And with family, friends, and acquaintances both here in the States and also back in Vietnam, the network is large enough to produce at least a rumor or two, perhaps even a validated account that innocent civilians were killed and ravaged, as Kerry stated again and again in the 70's.

But that's not what happening. Instead, Kerry is being savaged and exposed in the Vietnamese-American press.

And he's being properly identified in print for what he really is: a "phan boi".

A traitor.

GOOD. Apparently they're the only American papers who care.

I'd love too see these people have a run in with Sen.Sleazeball and the "Band of Brothers".
They could bring picture of their friends and relatives slaughterd by Sleazeballs' palls,the V.C.

Unfortunately the several Vietnamese newspapers sitting on my coffee table do not have web sites. Most of the VN web sites that are out there are in Vietnamese.

Found this from the Vietnam Veterans Against John Kerry site:

Vietnamese Americans Against John Kerry

Dan Tran, president of the Vietnam Human Rights Project

Dan Tran said speaking as a member of Vietnamese Americans Against John Kerry, "On behalf of tens of thousands of Vietnamese-Americans, we are determined to demonstrate against Senator Kerry all across this nation."

Dan Tran, a NASA engineer and president of the Vietnam Human Rights Project, said, "John Kerry aided and abetted the communist government in Hanoi and has hindered any human rights progress in Vietnam."

In the local Vietnamese community (New Orleans East) they recently had a 24 hour hunger strike set up in protest of the Vietnamese crackdown on religion.

I'm not surprised. While Kerry and his ilk were smarmily congratulating themselves over their noble motives, these folks were being executed, re-educated, and forced to flee their country.

Since Teresa Heinz Kerry is an Afrikaner, it might be interesting to know what her position is on integration, equal rights and aparthied.

Someone's got to ask - and it won't be CNN, ABCNBCCBSPBSNPR or their friends.

I think there's a patch for IE to translate from Vietnamese.

Wrong Kerry. You're thinking about Bob Kerry from, I think, Nebraska.

I have worked with many Vietnamese refugees. They are the proudest Americans you will ever meet. If only all of our immigrants could be so patriotic.

I don't think Teresa Heinz has any Afrikaner ancestry--she is always described as the daughter of a Portuguese doctor. She went to South Africa for her university education but that doesn't make her an Afrikaner any more than having an office in Harlem makes Bill Clinton an African American.

She may not be a "dyed in the wool" Afrikaner, - but I'd still be interested in her approach to minorities.

She impresses me a an elitist snob (just like ketchup boy) that would have an attitude that is at odds with the Democratic parties "multiculturalism is everything" stance.

On the other hand, I'm sure you wouldn't get a non-multicultural peep out of her - no matter her true beliefs.
