This is the same Duvalier that ruled with brutality and corruption for nearly 15 years before being overthrown in 1986.

This is the same Duvalier that repressed all political opponents, with the help of a special police unit called the Tontons Macoute.

This is the same Duvalier that stole hundreds of millions of dollars from Haiti's treasury.

Jah love. I cannot understand how you can have love for this Dikkktator who slaughtered countless numbers of innocent Haitian people.

I hope and pray that he pays his debt in hell when he meets his boss the devil.
