Liberal Democrats in public office are increasingly deploying a version of “the enemy of my enemy is my friend” with America’s most deadly enemies as their default political strategy to consolidate power, even if it means sharing that power with radical Islam — the antithesis of everything the Left always claims to want.
Best-selling author Pamela Geller agrees, suggesting that “shared goals” may explain the seemingly illogical and contradictory embrace by liberals of overtly anti-liberal movements like radical Islam (which dehumanizes women and mandates death for homosexuals — two very important constituencies for liberals.)
“The enemy of my enemy is my friend sums it up well,” Geller told The Daily Caller, after the horrific Orlando nightclub shooting by an ISIS disciple.
“They [Islam, liberals] both hate America and Israel. They both hate Western civilization. So they make common cause,” Geller continued. “They [the left] hate freedom, and everything that goes with it. The left and Islam both share a totalitarian, violent and supremacist imperative.”
History favors Geller’s analysis.
But Islam is just the left’s latest weapon of choice in their strategy to cut America down to size. Long before their embrace of Islam, the Democrats vociferously defended Soviet communism, looked favorably on Fascism (the real kind), and supported every nascent form of global government they could find in order to hasten America’s transformation and consolidate their power.
In fact, the evidence for liberal collusion with America’s enemies is so abundant, that deciding which betrayals are most deserving of mention is near-impossible; what follows, is an attempt.
TED KENNEDY: “AMERICA’S SENATOR”
No better illustration of this dynamic exists than when “America’s senator” — Ted Kennedy — contacted Soviet General Secretary Yuri Andropov and asked him to — literally, not figuratively – interfere behind the scenes in the U.S. presidential elections in 1984 to prevent Ronald Reagan from winning another term. To “hack” our election. Reagan won the Cold War, a fact which even Russian military brass acknowledge (source, from Statecraft), and which rankles many Democrats to this day.
If “hacking” a US election is truly deserving of liberal scorn, then it doesn’t get much worse than asking the head of the USSR — during the Cold War — to disenfranchise American voters.
Kennedy’s betrayal was severe and should have resulted in prison time. But in Kennedy’s case, it was a resume enhancer.
In contrast, all Trump did was give assent to actions that ensured American voters had access to records of candidate Hillary Clinton’s own words and actions.
POINT FOR HOME: Condemning such simple and common sense requests for candidate transparency and dishonestly referring to the subsequent leaks as a “hack” would be like grocery stores complaining that “sell-by” dates are bad because shoppers won’t buy as much food when they realize some of it is rotten or unsafe to eat.
FRANKLIN DELANO ROOSEVELT: FASCISM IS COOL
Franklin Delano Roosevelt, praised Italian dictator Benito Mussolini as “admirable,” openly applauded fascism, referred to mass murderer Joseph Stalin as “Uncle Joe,” and had the highest concentration of Soviet spies in his administration except for successor Harry Truman. When confronted on the pervasive Soviet spy problem by his own advisor, FDR reportedly remarked, “Go f**k yourself.”
“It’s the cleanest, neatest, most efficiently operating piece of social machinery I’ve ever seen. It makes me envious,” Roosevelt advisor Rexford Guy Tugwell said of fascism, adding that, “I find Italy doing many of the things which seem to me necessary … Mussolini certainly has the same people opposed to him as FDR has.”
Mussolini returned the compliment, saying of Roosevelt’s America, “Without question, the mood accompanying this sea change [New Deal] resembles that of Fascism.”
After the war in Europe ended, Roosevelt gave away Eastern Europe to the Soviet Union, enslaving millions behind an Iron Curtain for half a century (on advice from Soviet spy Alger Hiss.)
HARRY TRUMAN, FROM RUSSIA WITH LOVE
President Harry Truman, the only president to ever use a nuclear weapon — twice — was repeatedly warned by the FBI about specific Soviet spies in his administration who he then promoted to positions of critical influence in the U.S. government.
Treasury official Harry Dexter White, for example, was appointed to head up the International Monetary Fund after he was identified through intercepted Soviet cables as a Soviet spy. Truman was told numerous times of White’s identity. Truman approved White’s appointment anyway. The U.S. delegation to the United Nations founding conference was composed of almost all Soviet spies, and chaired by one — Alger Hiss. Truman looked the other way.
In Texas, we don’t call what Truman did a “mistake.” We call it, “premeditated.”
Truman graduated from appointing confirmed Soviet spies to top government posts to illegally sharing American troop movements with the Soviets and the Chinese during the Korean War. General Lin Piao, commander of the Chinese forces, would later comment: “I never would have made the attack and risked my men and my military reputation if I had not been assured that Washington would restrain General MacArthur… .”
While betraying our troops in Korea, Truman also told American ally Taiwan that it needed to submit to a Communist China or lose U.S. support.
LYNDON BANES JOHNSON, “ARMING THE ENEMY”
LBJ approved the sale of “dual-use” technologies to the Russians after a visit with David Rockefeller.
Such technologies, once obtained by the Soviets, were used to duplicate American weapons of war — resulting in higher numbers of American dead in Vietnam. The Soviet Union accounted for 80 percent of Hanoi’s war supplies — making ANY trade with Russia truly outrageous.
LBJ enabled the Soviet experiment to survive well into the 20th Century. In short, Russia was the best enemy money could buy.
In addition to practically giving Russia American weapons, LBJ also forced U.S. troops to fight one-handed. Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara’s notorious “rules of engagement” — which radically altered the way U.S. soldiers fought wars — were implemented under LBJ.
The new “rules” included a ridiculous requirement that American soldiers “not fire unless fired upon.” Also, a North Vietnamese MIG could not be struck if spotted on a runway; only if airborne and showing hostile intent and enemy surface-to-air missile sites could not be bombed while under construction; only after they became operational.
America was asked to fight a war this way.
In other words, Johnson ordered our troops to let the enemy have first strike advantage at all times — meaning we were always on the defensive, and always guaranteed to lose.
JIMMY CARTER, MR. PEANUT
After taking office, President Jimmy Carter embarked on a mission to let Communism prevail whenever and wherever, abandoning key allies while actively funding Soviet proxies — making Carter either dangerously incompetent or deserving of prison time:
Carter gave away the Panama Canal, which is now partially controlled by the Chinese military and can be shut down during potential future conflicts where American mobility will be essential (and, unavailable.)
Carter illegally and unilaterally terminated our defense treaty with Taiwan.
Carter’s State Department gave hundreds of millions of dollars to Communist guerrilla fighters in South America.
Carter made America dependent on Muslim oil for the last half century, by prohibiting exports and setting price caps that made foreign oil cheaper than drilling and refining in the U.S.
Carter allowed long-time ally Iran to fall to radical Islam, doing nothing in the face of a violent coup, which ultimately resulted in American hostages (who he also failed to protect.)
Traitor-Emeritus: Even though retired from public “service,” Carter still finds ways to sell out America and its allies, like when he leaked that Israel has a nuclear arsenal of 300 warheads (top secret.)
BILL CLINTON – WHERE TO BEGIN?
President Bill Clinton’s actions in support of American enemies (motives or intent irrelevant) are too numerous to list in entirety, but the greatest hits include:
Giving China top secret U.S. missile guidance technology in exchange for illegal campaign donations, enabling Chinese missiles to hit U.S. cities. China threatened to nuke Los Angeles in 1997.
Giving Russia $1.25 billion dollars in “disarmament aid,” even though the Russians refused audits.
Giving (trying to give) the China Ocean Shipping Company (Cosco), a 600-ship global shipping company controlled by the People’s Liberation Army, a 20-year lease on the U.S. Naval Shipyard in Long Beach, Calif.
Giving away the Panama Canal and giving Cosco the ports of Colon and Cristobal at both ends of the Panama Canal — virtually consigning U.S. naval control of global seaways to the PLA.
THE BIGGIE: Letting Osama Bin Laden go free, after he had already declared war on the U.S. and announced plans to attack major American cities. Clinton advisor Sandy Berger committed a felony in order to steal documents revealing Clinton’s role in 9/11.
Democrats indisputably and consistently provide support for America’s enemies and do so flagrantly without fear of criminal penalties or consequences of any kind.
Russia is at least open and historically candid about its view of America as a strategic enemy and its actions often reflect these historical norms. But our own countrymen brazenly giving away the store and burning down our own house is a threat even more deadly to America’s survival.
“If destruction be our lot, we ourselves must be its author and finisher.”
