They Helped Us During the Vietnam War, Then We Dumped Them
As you know, the French helped us during the Revolutionary War. Without them, we might’ve lost the war and become just another British colony. 230 years later we've turned against France with a vengeance, just because of a disagreement over Iraq. The French have pretty much been reduced to a caricature — a bunch of finicky wine-sipping surrender monkeys.
The Hmong (a mountain tribe from Southeast Asia) have gotten a much shorter grace period. They fought on America’s side during the Vietnam War. They were ferocious fighters who made a huge difference to our troops. And now they're being kept out of the United States because they might be “terrorists.”
Because of the Patriot Act and the Real ID Act, the Hmong are technically categorized as “terrorists” because of their secret war against the Laotian Communists almost 40 years ago.
The director of a Hmong advocacy group said “Thousands of Hmong veterans and family members are threatened with potential deportation down the road. And there is a clear and present danger they cannot be naturalized in a timely manner.”
Another spokesperson said “Clearly, it’s absurd that people who fought with us — people who have received special exemptions from the law precisely for that conduct — should be barred from coming to the U.S. as refugees as a result of that conduct.”
Ready, all together now: They hate us for our freedom.
