Vietnam Veterans for Factual History

Facts not myths

Myth: Ho Chi Minh was a nationalist and a benevolent leader of his people

Fact: Ho Chi Minh was a dedicated communist and slaughtered hundreds of thousands of his fellow countrymen.

  • Ho Chi Minh was a founding member of the French Communist Party in 1920 and founded the IndoChinese Communist Party in 1930.
  • He spent four years training in Russia and became a member of the Comintern.
  • He was not just a member of the Comintern. He was the protege of Dmitry Manuilsky, right hand man to both Stalin and Lenin.
  • He was a dedicated Stalinist who never swayed from his desire to forward the cause of international communism.
  • He turned his fellow countrymen over to the French for money and to eliminate his rivals while consolidating his power.
  • He "purged" the North Vietnamese landowner class, killing at least 50,000 (some estimates are as high as 900,000!) of them for the "crime" of being financially independent.
  • He slaughtered and imprisoned hundreds of thousands of his own countrymen in the South in an effort to rid himself of all opposition.
