“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.” Senator John Kerry of Massachusetts speaking on C-SPAN this morning.
And to think this man was nearly President of the United States! Thank you Ohio!!
Excuse me Senator Kerry…how many murders are required to be considered a massive bloodbath? Hundreds? Thousands? Tens of thousands? It is a well-known fact that tens of thousands of South Vietnamese were slaughtered after the fall of Saigon.
As for the “not very pretty” reeducation camps, what actually happened there Senator Kerry? They say a picture is worth a thousand words:
So what was a day like in the life at a Vietnamese Reeducation Camp Senator Kerry, any idea? Well, of course there was political indoctrination along with heavy and dangerous physical labor, and widespread disease because of the lack of food and medicine. This from a “warrior” who received a Purple Heart for an injury treated by the removal of a piece of shrapnel from his arm, application of bacitracin (an antibiotic) and a bandage, and he then returned to service immediately. With that criteria for a Purple Heart, my son Eddie would have about 10 Purple Hearts by now.
How is it that this man is even considered credible anymore? And oh by the way Massachusetts, could you please, please explain to the rest of America why you keep reelecting Ted Kennedy, John Kerry, Edward Markey, and Barney Frank?
