Ho Chi Minh was The Butcher of North Vietnam and he is the recipient of high praise from Barack Obama. Obama is rewriting history to suit his Marxist vision.
Rolling In The Deep… With Communists

I honestly don’t know how anyone who has been paying even the slightest attention to Obama and his history can be surprised at President Barack Obama‘s claim that Vietnam’s communist leader Ho Chi Minh was an admirer of U.S. Founding Father, Thomas Jefferson. Obama’s statement should be one for the history books and it is a direct insult to our Vietnam Vets. Disgraceful.
In an interview after his speech Wednesday in Galesburg, Illinois, President Obama was asked if he consulted White House lawyers before unilaterally delaying the employer mandate in Obamacare. Since Congress, in the Affordable Care Act, specified that the mandate is go to into effect at the start of next year, reporters from the New York Times asked if the president investigated whether he had the legal authority to put it off without going through Congress.
Obama didn’t exactly answer the question. But judging from what he said, his answer was: No, I didn’t consult White House lawyers because I know a lot more about the Constitution than the Republicans who are complaining about it. And besides, they don’t think I’m legitimately the president, anyway.
“People questioned your legal and constitutional authority to do that unilaterally — to delay the employer mandate,” asked the Times’ Jackie Calmes. “Did you consult with your lawyer?” […]
At that point, Obama explained that if Congress doesn’t like what he’s done, then lawmakers can try to do something about it. “I’m not concerned about their opinions,” the president said. “Very few of them, by the way, are lawyers, much less constitutional lawyers.” And some Republicans “think I usurp my authority by having the gall to win the presidency.” [emphasis mine]
At a July 25th meeting with Vietnam’s current communist Premier, Truong Tan Sang, Obama said:
At the conclusion of the meeting, President Sang shared with me a copy of a letter sent by Ho Chi Minh to Harry Truman. And we discussed the fact that Ho Chi Minh was actually inspired by the U.S. Declaration of Independence and Constitution, and the words of Thomas Jefferson. Ho Chi Minh talks about his interest in cooperation with the United States. And President Sang indicated that even if it’s 67 years later, it’s good that we’re still making progress.
Perhaps Obama missed that Ho Chi Minh had been a communist operative for more than 20 years at the time of that letter. That he spent most of his life living outside his country and that some of that time was in Moscow studying in the Lenin School. With the military aid of America, the Vietnamese communist guerrillas had just finished expelling the Japanese invaders. Ho Chi Minh was on very close terms with the U.S, Office of Strategic Services (already heavily infiltrated by American communists), which was the forerunner of the CIA.
Per Trevor Loudon:
The Vietnamese communist’s next step was to expel the French colonialists. They were keen to enlist American help in this battle, or at least not to provoke US opposition. In 1945, US foreign policy was still very soft on communism. It would only harden under Democrat president Harry Truman a couple of years later. Imagine what today’s Democrats would think of Truman – or JFK for that matter.
Ho Chi Minh had a brilliant mind and he played America like a communist fiddle. He lied with aplomb to gain support against the French and when that didn’t work with the Americans (at first), he turned to the Russians and ousted them by 1954.
Up is down, black is white and history has now been turned inside out. It’s like America is stuck in a never ending game of Lucy and Charlie Brown football. We keep falling for the same old communist tricks, because they swear it’s different this time. The Vietnam War was more of the same and so are today’s trends:
Then, after a period of consolidation, this great admirer of Thomas Jefferson attacked sovereign South Vietnam, with covert Soviet and Chinese support, sparking the Vietnam War.
The communists played a similar game in China, deliberately portraying themselves (with the help of American sympathizers in the State Department) as non-communist “agrarian reformers.”
Fidel Castro played similar games in pre-revolutionary Cuba.
Hugo Chavez in Venezuela repeatedly denied he was a socialist – until he had consolidated sufficient power.
The Devil can cite Scriptures to suit his purpose. Communists have a long history of citing the US Constitution and invoking American patriotism to suit theirs.
Barack Obama does it regularly…
Ho Chi Minh was The Butcher of North Vietnam and he is the recipient of high praise from Barack Obama. Obama is rewriting history to suit his Marxist vision. Make no mistake that Obama knew exactly what he was saying and whom he was praising.
While China is gearing up for war with us and paying very special attention to radiation-hardened electronics (gee, I wonder why), Obama is kanoodling with communists, Marxists, religious radicals and dictators across the planet. He has left us wide open to attack by seriously downsizing our military and gutting our weapon arsenals. He wants us attacked and brought down. It would be the ultimate redistribution of wealth and would give Obama the accomplishment of his long-dreamed of agenda.
Obama’s meeting with Vietnamese President Truong Tan Sang was a slap in America’s face — it was the ultimate bow and grovel moment. This is a country that on a regular basis imprisons and tortures bloggers and priests, quashes reporting and free speech, and routinely silences any form of political dissent. They are also heavily into forced labor and slavery. Obama said they “discussed the challenges that all of us face when it comes to issues of human rights.” You betcha! I’ll wager Obama was taking notes on how to improve his flowering dictatorship. Michelle Obama told supporters in her latest email that Barack is working to make Americans free from government. Yes, free from our form of government so Obama can rule as he wishes from on high. And that is at the core of his bromance with Ho Chi Minh, with Mao, with Stalin, with Che and with every other blood thirsty communist/Marxist/progressive that has unfortunately graced history. Note that “freedom from government” is the anarchist/chaos stage used to catapult dictators to power.
When will Jane Fonda come out in support of Obama’s statement re: Ho Chi Minh?

Keep in mind Jane Fonda’s statement above about “lies” and that she “wouldn’t do anything to hurt her country”
Several requests from students and other visitors have asked if the photos depicting Jane Fonda sitting on an NVA anti-aircraft gun were really her or not. The answer to this question is YES. Jane Fonda has expressed her regrets for having her picture taken while sitting on the anti-aircraft gun and for the pain that her action has caused many American Veterans.
Jane Fonda sitting on seat of anti-aircraft gun
In 1972 “Hanoi” Jane Fonda applauded an NVA anti-aircraft gun crew during her trip to North Vietnam. These guns were used to shoot down American planes and contributed to the deaths of American Airmen.
Jane Fonda, in her own words admitted to being a Socialist and revolutionary. Here are some quotes from Ms. Fonda:
On November 21, 1970 she told a University of Michigan audience of some two thousand students, “If you understood what communism was, you would hope, you would pray on your knees that we would some day become communist.” At Duke University in North Carolina she repeated what she had said in Michigan, adding “I, a socialist, think that we should strive toward a socialist society, all the way to communism. ” Washington Times July 7, 2000
On July 18, 1970, the People’s World, the West Coast’s Communist Party publication, carried a telephone interview with Fonda in which she said: “To make the revolution in the United States is a slow day by day job that requires patience and discipline. It is the only way to make it. . . . All I know is that despite the fact that I am one of the people who benefit from a capitalist society, I find that any system which exploits other people cannot and should not exist.”
Fonda made the following statement at the University of Texas: “We’ve got to establish a Socialist economic structure that will limit private profit-oriented businesses. Whether the transition is peaceful depends on the way our present governmental leaders react. We must commit our lives to this transition …… We should be very proud of our new breed of soldier. It’s not organized but it’s mutiny, and they have every right.” Karen Elliott Dallas Morning News December 11, 1971
“I am not a do-gooder, I am a revolutionary. A revolutionary woman.” 1972
Former Soviet bloc spy chief casts light on 1971 anti-war activism

Excerpt from above link:
Secretary of State John Kerry’s 1971 testimony before a Senate panel claiming American troops in Vietnam regularly committed war crimes against civilians was a product of a Soviet KGB disinformation campaign, according to the highest-ranking Soviet-bloc defector.
“Although Kerry never fully revealed the source of the accusations, I recognized them as being a product of another KGB disinformation operation,” says Lt. Gen. Ion Mihai Pacepa in a new documentary produced by WND Films.
Testifying to the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations on April 22, 1971, Kerry claimed war crimes were being “committed on a day-to-day basis with the full awareness of officers at all levels of command”:
“They told the stories at times they had personally raped, cut off ears, cut off heads, taped wires from portable telephones to human genitals and turned up the power, cut off limbs, blown up bodies, randomly shot at civilians, razed villages in fashion reminiscent of Genghis Khan, shot cattle and dogs for fun, poisoned food stocks, and generally ravaged the countryside of South Vietnam in addition to the normal ravage of war, and the normal and very particular ravaging which is done by the applied bombing power of this country.”
In the new documentary, retired Lt. Gen. William Boykin, an original member of the U.S. Army’s Delta Force who spent 36 years in the Army, challenges Kerry’s testimony.
“He never saw those things. He was perpetuating the myth of the left about our young men and women who served in Vietnam,” Boykin says.
Boykin recalls Kerry throwing his war medals over the White House fence in protest.
“It was all a ploy to increase his status and draw attention to him,” Boykin says.
“I think it’s high time for Senator Kerry to come clean and apologize for what he did,” he charges.
WND Managing Editor David Kupelian, a co-writer of the documentary, explains on camera the power of disinformation.
He points out that if Kerry’s anti-American rhetoric were delivered openly by the Soviet Union, it would not have the same impact, because Americans would expect their communist enemy to talk like that.
However, he says, “We don’t expect this from a person like John Kerry, and that message was carried forth by the so-called mainstream news media in the U.S.”
