    1. @Andreas Linden Did you really just say that? Go find out yourself the internet is free-what a dumbass excuse to just ridicule others

    2. @jeepurs_creepurs I’m such a good person… I’m fighting for so many animals so yeah your right I’m the bad guy

    3. @Andreas Linden You are part of the problem with your racially motivated comment. You say something without knowing the history behind it. Which doesn’t make you a good guy just an uneducated fool. Research the Great Leap Forward in China during the 1950s, and consider what it took for the Chinese people to survive. This also happened in American history during the American Civil War, and also during the Indian Wars the took place in American history.

    4. @Daniel Vache so you think it’s ok to boil and burn dogs alive? It still happen in China never heard of the dog meat festival in yulin this sommer? Million of dogs are getting brutally slaughtered every year… follow @nodogsleftbehind on IG.

    5. @Andreas Linden Good thing you weren’t part of the Donner Party….
      First they ate the horses….ever been hungry?

  1. He’s right, but that includes All races including us as well. But I also say The most High will decide who is guilty.

    1. The enemy gave them to him while serving in the United States Armed Forces…. Freedom is not Free….those scars prove it…

    1. Unfortunately these people have a place now in society on social media to be cunts. Feel sorry for any person who is effected by racism it’s unneeded.

  2. Mr Lee Wong makes us Chinese-Americans VERY PROUD. (He still has a slight Hong Kong Accent; in 1968, very few Koreans
    emigrating to the US.)

  3. I Salute you Sir…I’m sorry that so many Americans just don’t get it…I’ve never served I am a Soldier’s Son and very proud of you and my Dad….very proud….Thank you with Love and blessings and a hug for you….

    1. I can’t imagine anyone “not getting it” so don’t be so quick to judge. I believe most of us believe in life, liberty and let live. Unfortunately the crazy left are trying to make everyone believe the abnormal is normal. God help us all.

    2. @FFitz G quick to judge? Old asian women are getting punched in the face.., I grew up listening to my old man’s war stories…I’m going to write a book someday…. Memoirs from the Driveway… One Chapter will be titled…. Soldiers Empathy and the Stars and Stripes.,.gotta go get back to you

  4. Cause I’m proud to be an American,
    Where at least I know I’m free.

    And I won’t forget the men who died,
    And gave that right to me.

    And I’ll gladly stand up,
    And defend her still today.

    Cause their ain’t no doubt I love this land,
    God bless The USA

  5. Hi edagdwg thanks You tube for sharing this story of a man that gave his life all most to live and work in this world God gave him a real reason to stand up and say I did more for you than you will ever do for me god bless him Linda j.

  6. Asian hate crimes have no place in America. Asians are hard working people who need to be respected and treated well. However, I have doubts about this individual. How do we know this individual is not spying for China or other country?
