Garden Grove Councilman Phat Bui vs. Sacramento City Council
A show down at high noon is expected on Tuesday July 14, 2015 between the Vietnamese-American anti-communist folks in Sacramento and the Sacramento City Council.
A press release was sent out by State Senator Janet Nguyen to alert the public about a Vietnam delegation visiting Sacramento. She is urging the public to join her in protest against the city of Sacramento's effort to recognize a delegation from Vietnam.
Since the Vietnamese-American represents less than 3% of the total population in Sacramento, the community is urging other anti-communist groups from Orange County to join the protest tomorrow.
In response, Garden Grove City Councilman Phat Bui and some of his people will be arriving from Orange County to have their voices heard.
Councilman Phat Bui is a controversial figure in Garden Grove for some and a hero for others. He is best known for his strong arm tactic recently against Riverside City when this city decided to establish friendship city with a city in Vietnam. He vocally urged his Vietnamese-American constituents to protest and disrupt any businesses in Riverside that have any dealings in Vietnam.
The Riverside City Council promptly ignored the anti-communist extremists and voted to have a sister city relationship with Vietnam.
And now with strong passion, he is urging the anti-communist people in Sacramento to remove any city council member who recognizes a delegation from Vietnam or even has the courage to suggest a sister city relationship with a city in Vietnam.
In Orange County, the anti-communist folks are vocal and often bring fear to elected officials. The Sacramento City Council will either learn this either the easy way or hard way.
