I wonder why that is.
Rep. Karen Bass tanked her shot at being Biden’s VP with her love for Castro. That probably helped drop Senator Bernie Sanders as Dems confronted the possibility of losing Florida. And just when they got a good grip on Orange County, they have to praise Ho Chi Minh.
Jeff LeTourneau resigned Thursday from leadership roles with the Democratic Party of Orange County after facing sharp criticism for sharing a Facebook post that praised Ho Chi Minh, the late communist leader of Vietnam.
The longtime progressive activist initially said he wouldn’t step down, arguing that expressing an unpopular political opinion wasn’t grounds for removal from office.
Supporting Communist mass murderers = unpopular opinion.
Somehow I don’t think he would feel the same way about expressing support for the Nazis.
Critics say when LeTourneau shared a pro-Minh message he opened old wounds for Vietnamese refugees and undid years of hard work by the Democratic Party to win over local Vietnamese American voters. They added that the move gave Republicans ammunition to paint all Democrats as communists,
Crazy right? What would ever give anyone that idea?
The controversy started Sunday when LeTourneau shared a Facebook post that discussed how Minh was a political force even though he was small in stature, never married or had kids. “Ho Chi Minh may be considered some sort of pariah or socially awkward. Instead, Ho Chi Minh liberated an entire poor, colonized nation from 2 of the most powerful imperial military forces in the world (the US and France) and won full independence for the people of Vietnam.”
Don’t get the idea that LeTourneau is gone. He’s just as gone as Dem support for BLM rioting and looting.
LeTourneau stepped down as a vice chair and committee leader but is still a central committee member with the party, representing the 55th Assembly District.
Forward, Comrades. The revolution awaits.
