Communist Party of America
People for the American Way
Human RIghts Watch
American Civil Liberties Union
...and of course- the United Nations.
There are other groups, but these stand out to me, as they have long been in the forefront of the attempt to take American away from Americans who believe differently from them. They hold patriotism, religion, duty, honor and loyalty in low regard, and worship only power and ideology- an ideology that a small minority of Americans actually share.
These groups stand condemned out of their own mouths, as their willing presence on the steering committee of an organization called United for Peace and Justice demonstrates. I think it is put best by the admirable Captain Ed:
Freedom of speech and assembly are the closest we come to unfettered rights in the United States; we do not tolerate limits on either unless necessary for keeping the peace. However, one of the limitations accepted by almost everyone is a ban on overthrowing the elected government through force, both in action and in rhetoric. The rally being organized by the group United For Peace And Justice appears to approach that limitation, if it doesn't actually cross it entirely
I agree. This UFPJ, and the groups who asssociate with it, have branded themselves traitors to the United States of America. As they themselves say:
Storm the White House
Multi-Day Event, Beginning March 15, come when you can and stay as long as you can - we are taking over the White House until they leave.
Wednesday, March 15th 2006 12:00 AM
Washington, DC USA
TAKE THE WHITE HOUSE BY STORM - Stop Genocide, Torture and Occupation
U.N. SOS - We need your help to end the reign of international criminals.
It is our duty and the duty of the United Nations to rescue the people of the world from the U.S. dictators. Murder for occupation and theft of land is illegal. Murder of journalists is criminal. Remove the traitors who have stolen the U.S. budget and used it to commit international crimes against humanity.
Forgive me if I find it hard to take their complaints seriously. These were the people and organizations who were silent when the Nazis were killing innocent Jews (until the Soviet Union was attacked). They were silent in the face of the Chinese and Soviet Communist massacres. They were silent and unconcerned about Saddam Hussein's rape rooms in Iraq. They show no concern over the massacre of Christians by Muslims in Indonesia and Africa (in Timor and Sudan respectively). They showed no sympathy for the victims of Che Guevara and Fidel Castro. Nor do they seem to care about the plight of the democracy advocates even today in real dictatorships such as Cuba, Venezuela and China. They cry about imagined slights to Islam but give not a thought to the millions of non-Muslims who dare not even practice their own religions in Saudi Arabia or Bahrain. They cavorted with Idi Amin without a thought for his millions of victims. And they are seemingly unconcerned with the attempts by Iran's mullahs to become nuclear and export their global jihad against the West to this country. However, they consider the twice-elected (and the second time with a clear majority of the popular vote- something that their revered Bill Clinton never managed) Chief Executive of the United States of America and his Administration to be 'criminal'?
It has been said that actions speak louder than words, but in this case, the words and actions of these groups have for a long time been aimed at the destruction of the United States. This latest foray merely strengthens my belief that the dormant laws on treason and sedition need to be applied. Not al speech is protected, and this kind of speech is defintely among that which is not. Calling for the overthrow of an elected and democratic government in a nation that lives by the rule of law likie the US is the very definition of treason. Where is the FBI when we need them? We have a disloyal opposition, and we have laws to deal with that. Maybe a long stretch in prison for treason or sedition might bring these traitors to their senses. Speech has consequences.
Hat tips to Captain Ed and Michelle Malkin.
