Public Statement in Regard to The Voice of Vietnamese Americans

Feb 24, 2017

Public LogoCDGIFSbStatement in Regard to The Voice of Vietnamese Americans

To whom it may concern,

The Vietnamese American Community of the USA is the nationwide organization that represents scores of Vietnamese Communities at city and state levels. We herein clarify that the organization named The Voice of Vietnamese Americans has nothing to do with our Vietnamese American Community of the USA.

To our understanding, the Voice of Vietnamese Americans (VVA) was founded by Ms. Nguyen Thi Ngoc Giao in Virginia several years ago to promote her agenda which does not represent the Vietnamese American community at large.

Some of the VVA perspectives and political stances may or may not agree with ours. We respect the opinions expressed on the VVA website and other publications, but they should not be taken as the voice of the Vietnamese Americans.

Our official websites and Facebook page are as follows:

With our best regards,

Our best regards,

Michael Do, President

One Response to Public Statement in Regard to The Voice of Vietnamese Americans

  1. mpvd1946 says:

    A Letter from Mr. Anh Tu Do sent to the public:

    Dear all,

    Below is the entire communication that I had with Mrs. Genie Nguyen Le (Ngoc Giao Nguyen), founder of the “Voice of Vietnamese Americans” (VVA) group. For some of you whom I did not include in my initial e-mail, see below timeline to make it easier for you to understand the issue:

    1. On January 30th, Mrs. Genie Nguyen Le sent out a press release with the headline “Voice of Vietnamese Americans Stand with Refugees and Muslim Immigrants in Protecting the American Values”.
    2. On January 31st, Mr. Bui Manh Hung replied in Vietnamese to Mrs. Nguyen Le basically stating that she is entitled to her viewpoint. However, her organization does not represent him nor many others in the Vietnamese community.
    3. On February 7th, I sent Mrs. Genie Nguyen Le a message after I did some research to learn more about the “Voice of Vietnamese Americans” organization.
    4. Mrs. Nguyen Le replied on the same day, but did not address the concerns raised so I responded to her a few hours later asking for more specifications.
    5. On February 12th, I sent a follow up message.

    As of today, two weeks have passed and I have not received any reply from Mrs. Genie Nguyen Le.
    Since I sent out the initial message, I received feedback from many people who acknowledged that Mrs. Nguyen Le has been using this organization to promote her own political agenda for years. They all agreed that it is about time this issue be addressed.
    Mrs. Genie Nguyen Le has not responded to the questions and concerns of many in the Vietnamese community about using her organization’s name to push her viewpoints. She continues to post articles that only fit her own agenda on her VVA’s Facebook page. She claims to be the “Voice of Vietnamese Americans” and was quick to send out a press release standing with refugees and Muslim immigrants, yet so far, she has remained quiet to the fact that just two days ago, California State Senator Janet Nguyen was forcibly silenced by the Democratic majority and was removed from the Senate floor by the Senate sergeant-at-arms for making comments on former Senator Tom Hayden because he was siding with the Communist Vietnamese government. The same government that has enslaved, tortured, and killed millions of its own citizens.
    There is not a single article about this incident posted on the VVA’s Facebook page. Where is the outrage and where are the press releases from the “Voice of Vietnamese Americans” standing with a Vietnamese State Senator for exercising her right to free speech? Does this silence have to do, as the Louder with Crowder article below suggests, with Mrs. Genie Nguyen Le’s political affiliation?

    Read some articles of the incident and attached opening statement of Senator Janet Nguyen:

    Last but not least, I would like to take the time to thank:

    Mr. Michael Do (Do Van Phuc)
    Chairman of the Board of Executives.
    The Vietnamese American Community of the USA
    https://vacusa.wordpress.com
    http://tienggoicongdan.com/

    Chairman Michael Do has issued two official letters (one in English and the other in Vietnamese) (see attached letters and below link) bringing to attention the fact that the group “Voice of Vietnamese Americans” is not the voice of all Vietnamese Americans.

    https://vacusa.wordpress.com/2017/02/25/public-statement-in-regard-of-the-voice-of-vietnamese-americans/

    I encourage all the media outlets and everyone included in this e-mail list to hold Mrs. Genie Nguyen Le accountable for not answering the concerns of the Vietnamese community and for misusing her organization’s name to push for a partisan political agenda. She has the right to push for her own political viewpoints, but she has no right to claim that this is the “Voice of Vietnamese Americans.”

    Please help forward the official letters around and please continue to raise your voice, hold accountable and expose individuals and/or organizations that intentionally misrepresent our Vietnamese community to the public for their own interests.

    Do not hesitate to contact me for any feedback, comments, questions pertaining to this matter, or any other related issues.

    Thank you.

    Anh Tu Do

    Mrs. Genie Nguyen Le,
    As of today, I have not received any response from you regarding the questions mentioned below. Please note that these concerns are not coming just from me, but they are coming from many others in the Vietnamese community.
    It would be greatly appreciated that you provide the answers to these questions to clarify this issue once and for all.
    Thank you.

    Mrs. Genie Nguyen Le,

    Thank you for the quick reply. However, you have not responded directly to my requests:
    1. Are you willing to change your group’s name to something that is more in line with the political viewpoints reflected on your Facebook posts?
    2. Do you plan to continue sending out press releases using the name “Voice of Vietnamese Americans”?
    Please note that the reason I have to raise this issue to you is because this is the concerns that many Vietnamese in the community have toward your group.
    Thank you for the understanding and I am looking forward to hear back from you.

    Regards,
    Anh Tu Do

    Dear Ms. Anh Tu Do,

    Kindly read the Voice of Vietnamese Americans statement carefully. Kindly do NOT try to impose your own ideology into it.
    Voice of Vietnamese Americans simply stands with refugees and immigrants to protect our American Values.
    I urge you to join us as well,
    Very best,
    Genie

    Mrs. Ngoc Giao Nguyen,

    I learned about the announcement below last week:
    Voice of Vietnamese Americans Stands with Refugees and Muslim Immigrants in Protecting the American Values
    Voice of Vietnamese Americans Stands with Refugees and Muslim Immigrants in Protecting the American Values
    I was just wondering if you had read President Trump’s Executive Order? Here is the Executive Order for your reference:

    https://www.whitehouse.gov/ the-press-office/2017/01/27/ executive-order-protecting- nation-foreign-terrorist- entry-united-states

    I read the Executive Order and there is no mention of a “Muslim Ban.” This is just a temporary restriction on receiving immigration from nations known to supporting terrorism (a list compiled by the Obama Administration). It was designed so we can vet refugees for the security of the United States and the protection of American citizens against terrorists who want to invade this country to harm us. It should be noted that President Obama restricted travel coming from Iraq in 2011 for six months, yet I don’t remember Voice of Vietnamese Americans standing with the Iraqi Muslim and Christian refugees.
    I encourage you to look at the attached pictures, the articles and video clips below to learn more about the facts of this issue:

    Sadly, U.S. Senator and Vice Presidential candidate Tim Kaine of VA even incited obstruction and violence by encouraging people to “fight in the streets”. Virginians deserve better than this:

    http://www.realclearpolitics. com/video/2017/01/31/kaine_ take_advantage_of_public_ outcry_at_trump_to_get_ outside_the_bubble.html

    If you want to know what life is like in Iraq for an American, watch this video clip from a marine who actually experiences it:
    http://freedomdaily.com/ marine-iraq-reveals- horrifying-secret-muslims- told-wake-americans-hell/
    When I looked at your group’s website, it is unfinished and not updated. On your Facebook page, I saw articles that mostly focus on criticizing our newly elected President. For a group that calls itself Voice of Vietnamese Americans, it needs to be fair and present all the facts on the issues.
    I also noticed that you posted on your group’s Facebook page at least 15 articles of the Women’s March in DC on January 21st. The March for Life has more than half a million marchers every year in Washington DC with over 75% of them younger than 30 years old to advocate for the right to life for both mothers and unborn. Yet, there was not a single article about the largest Pro-woman and Pro-children peaceful demonstration every year, the March for Life.
    See video clips below that show the contrast between the two marches and the true cause of the Women’s March that you promoted on your group’s Facebook:
    The Women’s March vs. The March for Life:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch? v=yF5uLywdjmo
    College Professor Exposes Women’s March:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch? v=PbuNMYWNehA
    This voter happened to pass by a crowd of people at the Women’s March on January 21st:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch? v=IPqrimR8GWw

    These few instances mentioned above show that what your group is advocating for is not the voice of all Vietnamese Americans, but more like the the voice of the Democrat Party. For the last few weeks, this party has become the party of hate, violence, obstruction, and division. Democrat politicians are more worried about their own political agenda than the safety of the American people.
    Of course you are free to advocate any viewpoints you choose to. However, many other Vietnamese and I, have deep concerns that you are using the name “Voice of Vietnamese Americans” to spread a biased and unfair viewpoint.
    I call on you to do the right thing and rename your group to something more in line with what you stand for such as the “Voice of Vietnamese American Democrats”. If you are going to continue to push an agenda and send out press releases, I request that you stop using the name “Voice of Vietnamese Americans”.
    I look forward to receiving some answers from you on this matter. I will follow up in about a week or two in case I do not hear from you.
    All feedback, comments, and/or suggestions are also welcome from anyone on this e-mail list. Please help forward this message to others in the Vietnamese community.
    Thank you.
