Today our Freedom is under attack, not from outside forces, but from evil that resides within our borders. Many Americans, referred to as Marxist/Progressives or Democrats, want to control how all Americans act, speak, and think. These Americans believe that the state or the government, the very force the Colonists fought to restrain and then limited its power in the Constitution, is the granter of individual freedoms, the regulator of all wealth, and the dictator of how we are to think and act. They believe in Collectivism, which is the practice or principle of giving a group priority over each individual in it and the practice of the ownership of land and the means of production by the state. This is the same philosophy advocated by Karl Marx. Marx told his followers that they must establish a Dictatorship of the Proletariat that insures total conformity to the thinking of the state and total equality of all; socially, politically, and economically.
We have seen this movement take hold within the United States over the last one hundred years or so. In 2008, Comrade Obama promised he would transform the United States so it did become a Dictatorship of the Proletariat. Although Obama, and his fellow Marxists, did not complete the transformation, they made much progress. Today, because of Obama and his fellow Marxists, our freedoms and freedom for all Americans is under severe threat.
This same Obama is the reason our freedom is under threat from the other front. Obama encouraged and enabled Islamic Jihadists during his two terms. Obama gave assistance to these Jihadists in the forms, of guns, money, and politically. Today, these same Jihadists are threatening the freedom of individuals in countries around the world, including the United States. We must never forget that it was Obama who lifted the sanctions on Iran when Iran was facing serious economic problems. It was Obama who negotiated an agreement with Iran that insured Iran would have nuclear weapons. It was Obama who returned liquid assets to Iran. It was Obama who sent plane loads of cash to Iran. One can only conclude that it is Obama who agrees with the goals of the Iranians.
Here are the goals of the Iranians as expressed by them. On March 11, 2017, IRGC commander Ali Ja’fari said of the worldwide Islamic regime: “The history of Iran is replete with agreement on the Rule of the Jurisprudent [velayat ] which has [already] crossed Iran’s borders, and the united Islamic nation is being formed… We are on the path that leads to the rule of Islam worldwide.”
On March 15, 2017, Ja’fari added on the same subject: “The Islamic Revolution is aimed at creating an infrastructure of the religion of God on earth, and it will wait for no man on its path advancement. All [Iranian] officials must adapt to the accelerated progress of the Revolution.
“The Islamic Revolution is now in its third stage – that is, [the stage] of assembling the Islamic government, and with God’s help it will pass this stage successfully despite the ups and downs that constantly occur.
“As IRGC commander, and as one of the commanders during the era of the Sacred Defense [i.e. the 1980-88 Iran-Iraq war], I believe that today the young people’s yearning to unconditionally defend the Revolution has expanded greatly relative to the era of the Sacred Defense. Their repeated requests to play a role alongside the defenders of the holy places indicate this.
“The religious seminaries and the IRGC bear the joint mission to advance and deepen the Islamic Revolution. This is God’s promise for the salvation of humanity, and we are charged with it. The senior revolutionary clerics and the IRGC will without a doubt actualize God’s promises, while implementing a comprehensive plan of the Islamic Revolution for shaping the picture of the Islamic world.
“Our internal spiritual and material potential for creating [such a global regime], and the robustness of the [Iranian] regime, which constitutes the main nucleus of this plan, are expanding in might. According to the words of [Ayatollah Ruhollah] Khomeini, if the revolution and the regime stop on the path, this will cause damage to Islam.”
On April 30, 2017, at a teachers’ conference, Ja’fari said: “Some [people] have a flawed perception of the Islamic Revolution, for they think that its aim was only to defeat the regime of the Shah and to establish the Islamic regime [in Iran]. [But] if we look at the words of the Imam [Khomeini], we will discover a correspondence between the Islamic Revolution and the spread of the religion of Islam. In order to build the Islamic regime, there is no other path but to advance the Islamic Revolution… As the Imam said: If this Islamic regime is defeated, Islam is defeated.
“The framework of our activity is the Islamic Revolution, and first we must know what its aims are… The external dimension of the Revolution is based on the principle of Islam [as] derived from the lesson of the Ashura. This is in effect the principle of enmity towards evil and enmity towards the arrogance [the West, led by the U.S.]. This is actualized by means of the Islamic awakening against evil, and it is waged in the best possible way thanks to the Leader [Khamenei], who is its standard-bearer.”
Freedom is under threat from the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) and from Islam. Freedom Loving Americans, if we are to remain free, we must eliminate both evils from our shores. Both Marxism and Islam are sworn enemies of freedom.
