I sit watching my beloved city under yet another terrorist threat. I can live with those threats it is part of the price for living in NYC. I will be returning shortly
but that is another post.
The problem with the Cold War was we treated Communism as just another political viewpoint. Thus as another viewpoint they are entitled to the freedoms the rest of us have. Unfortunately, we have learned that CPUSA was entirely funded by Moscow . We also learned about espionage centered from CPUSA. We have also learned of the ancient tactic of Front Groups to disguise the CPUSA involvement.
Communism is an expansionistic hegemonistic system that seeks the violent overthrow of Capitalism. Islam is not a religion like Baptists or Zoroastrians . There is also the desire for world domination expressed in the faith . Jihad is not a diversion it is a central theme.
Civil rights do not include national suicide, if it does Striesand goes first. These groups should be closely monitored and if they violate the law prosecuted . Members of Code Pink gave money and medical supplies to our enemies in Falujah . The people responsible should be tried.
Free Speech does not include meeting with foriegn intelligence agencies or terrorists . Hayden and others did this durring Vietnam and should have faced prosecution. Sedition and Treason are not protected by the first amendment. The FBI has an obligation to watch Mosques and far left groups. It is time we wise up and learn from our mistakes.
