Hate Communist from ghet bac Ho :

No revolutionary/patriot has it easy. Suffrage and hardship are part of the package when one loves his/her country dearly. I hope he has better days and treatment soon.
I just hate that puked green uniform and especially the people that wear it! Isn’t that the gaudy looking junk? C’mon you goons, you aren’t in the jungle anymore, or is it old habits die hard?
My paternal grandfather was a retired high school principal. He was +70 yrs old when he attended one of these ‘re-education’ camps (Extreme gulags) after ‘75s. Needless to say, he didn’t make it. Asides from the gulag’s harsh treatments, my grandfather was a man of principles and a feisty one too. He would rather break than bow to their warped reasons. Thus, I’m sure it wasn’t easy for him. Why Ho’s Armies afraid of a +70 yrs old educator? I would bet some of these goons and even their parents were in his classes or schools. Wish I could hear grandfather stern voice denouncing them – you go grandpa! How can you win hearts and minds by the nozzle of a gun?
My maternal grandfather was a business man and also in politics (Hence, I can see why the goons don’t like him). He too was +70 yrs old when he attended these ‘re-education’ camps. The reason why the goons allowed him to go home because he has Alzheimer while incarcerated and my grandmother was paying the prison guards to keep him alive. He died shortly after they released him. My grandmother visited the camp regularly and disgusted with everything about it. The most vivid image in her mind was when my frail grandfather; in rags; has to salute one of the young, uneducated (OK, how about a 3rd grade education?), and vicious goons at the visitor gate – the contrast was unnatural! This wouldn’t never happen in a civilize settings.
So go ahead; punish our fleshes and break our bones, but you can’t ever compromise our principles. Because of these simple beliefs, it makes us stronger and better than you! Although the words of these lines are simple (Child like really!) but, it’s at the level that you goons can comprehend more easily. Here is another fact and secret: Your titles and gold don’t make you a better person! To simply put, you are still only a stupid goon with $$$!
The VNmese people will have justice.
