WASHINGTON: This past week Americans had remembrance ceremonies in honor of Patriot’s Day, which brings back the memories of September 11, 2001. Americans refer to this day as Patriot Day to commemorate those brave men and women who risked their lives for the sake of others. We must remember those who helped save and serve their fellow human beings caught in harm’s way. Moreover, since Americans annually celebrate Constitution Day, the anniversary of the signing of the Constitution of the United States, these two days are forever entwined.
Constitution Day – Patriot Day
The two days honor different kinds of heroes, but heroes nevertheless.
Patriot Day commemorates the courageous actions of heroes who served their fellow human beings during an act of war upon American soil. Constitution Day commemorates the courageous men who signed the document that become the Law of the Land. An act that essentially created the “American” soil.
The day honoring the founding of the U.S.A. always follows Patriot Day on the calendar by just six days. However, the events causing Patriot Day and Constitution Day span a time of more than two hundred years. Both days honor the American spirit.
When carefully considered, Patriot Day is commemorated because of the attacks against the Constitution and way of life of the American people. Angry militant Islamist terrorists perpetrated the attacks. Osama bin Laden expressed the goals of the terrorists in his letter to the American people in 2002. Most Americans have not read that letter, but they should. It contains a condemnation of much of what is bad with America. However, at the heart of bin Laden’s message, is his call for Americans to embrace Islam and to follow Sharia Law.
As Americans remember Constitution Day in 2019, the nation is divided in spirit. It has only been eighteen years since the terrorist attacks that brought such horrific death and destruction. The multiple acts of evil helped Americans unite around the display of goodness from the first responders. However, in eighteen years, Americans have allowed themselves to become divided.
Today, some Americans regard the police as enemies of the people – and the mainstream media portrays the displays of antagonism toward the police as widespread. In some cases of municipal and state leadership, the police were ordered to stand by while they watched citizens beaten by the very people who have little regard for the laws of the nation.
Today, many Americans are confused about the purpose or value of the police. They are also seriously confused about the rule of law, as well as the bedrock values embedded in the Constitution. During the presidency of Barack Obama, the nation became divided over the value of law and order in our communities.
During the 2016 election, “Democratic” Party leadership was exposed by “Project Veritas” for planning and financing protests against an opposition candidate.
This year through “Project Veritas,” brave whistleblowers alerted Americans to the insidious illegal activities of Google directors and other social media business behemoths.
Additionally, through the efforts of Judicial Watch and other patriotic organizations, citizens are becoming more aware of the criminal activities from Obama’s Administration and the Democrats during their presidential campaign fiascos. Of course, the MSM will not cover the discovery process because they are part of the “covering” or cover-up process.
There is always more than one side of any issue
Ask two people in a physical altercation, or sit in on a courtroom trial. When only one side of what happens in the real world shows up on television what can intelligent people conclude? Most Americans tune the news out and go about their lives. When only one side of anything is held up to be the truth, it should be seriously challenged or questioned.
The U.S. media have proven to be as useless as “Bagdad Bob,” who propagated an alternate news reality during the first Gulf War. Muhammad Saeed al-Sahhaf was the Iraqi Information Minister. He was nicknamed “Bagdad Bob” by western journalists due to his fake news stories, or disinformation.
The contemporary MSM could be suffering from similar delusional propaganda.
The mainstream media (MSM) tends to spin the truth into lies so much, they begin to convince themselves that lies are the truth. The bought-and-paid-for media puppets often believe their parroting narratives. However, it yields an insidious process of propagandizing the American people. This is why Osama bin Laden’s letter to the American people becomes important.
Bin Laden’s letter portrays an alternate view of reality. The terrorist leader railed on and on against the oppressive capitalist system in the United States. In Osama bin Laden’s myopic view of reality, only he possessed the truth. To him, his “truth” gave him and any Islamist terrorists the right to purge life from those who do not matter in the general scheme of things.
Osama bin Laden’s “patriots” fought for the elimination of Israel and presumably all Jews in the U.S.
Such a goal is in alignment with the goals of Adolf Hitler’s National Socialist Party. History demonstrates shared hopes. There is something much more sinister in bin Laden’s revelations of why Islamist militants would target a massive number of human beings for extinction. This man’s views are in alignment not only with Hitler, but also with Joseph Stalin, or Mao Zedong, or Pol Pot, or hundreds of other absolutists. They had no qualms in killing so many in a short period of time.
At the beck and call of all of these “leaders” was a cadre of people. People who would do whatever it took to implement their objectives. This is an incredibly serious and deadly problem.
One way tyrants rise is through the deliberate use of propaganda and amplifying their “truth” by marginalizing voices of dissent — development of oppression proceeds when only one side of the “truth” is tolerated. Whatever version of “political correctness” permitted in public will work. The progression of tyranny occurs when a population loses connection with that which they truly believe in.
Then, ignorance and eventually fear to swallow the people.
The Radical 2019 Democrat Party
In 2019, the radicalized version of the Democrat Party is getting to the point that they are willing to do whatever it takes to advance their agenda. The political tightrope that many angry progressives and Democrat-Socialists are walking within the political arena reveals little fear in overexpressing their hatred of America.
Their rantings reveal little fear in expressing their hatred of the American people who love the ideals and values embedded in the founding documents.
There are those in the “Democratic” Party who no longer care about the Constitution as it was intended to be used for the people to govern themselves. The political agenda that the leaders of the Democrat-Socialists and the progressives are advancing exhibits strands of sentiment similar to Osama bin Laden’s rant against America and capitalism.
Osama bin Laden was no more a freedom fighter than Pancho Villa, or Che Guevara, or Mao Zedong.
The true freedom fighters were the founding fathers who stood up to tyrants, and to tyranny in their bravery. Freedom fighters were the founding fathers who, in their brilliance, defiantly wrote the words of the Declaration of Independence. Freedom fighters were the founding fathers who wisely made a more perfect Union through the Constitution of the United States. Americans need to realize the difference!
True Americans need to put an end to the idea that socialism in America is not a pathway to tyranny. Americans are needed to become modern-day freedom fighters. True Americans need to support modern-day freedom fighters like those working with “Project Veritas” and Judicial Watch or the Heartland Institute. True American freedom fighters need to take a stand against the Democrat’s pathway to a socialist tyranny.
Long live the Constitution of the United States of America.
