Frank Marshall Davis, a card carrying member of the Communist party was Obama’s mentor. Obama and his ruling elites understand the works of Marx, Lenin, Hitler and Stalin. They understand the workings of power in order to seize control. This is the darkest period in our country and evil players are disguised as do-gooders, calling for hope and change while demonizing the rich. Hitler and Stalin appeared as the good liberators sounding the call of hope and change for the common people in dismal times. They vilified one group, the Jews, the wealthy capitalists, as the cause of the nation’s problems and seized total power wiping out the middle class and all their liberties. The same thing that happened in Nazi Germany can happen here.
That’s why it’s imperative that we study the heroic life and legacy of Raoul Wallenberg. People back then, as is the case now, gave up their rights for comfort and security. People look the other way and don’t want to be bothered. Like Nazi Germany, when their neighbors were being rounded up and taken away to the death camps, people thought to themselves, “glad it’s not me.” People are the same today. They don’t want to be involved. Half the people have become dependent on the largess of the welfare state and the other half believes that politics is crooked and government is corrupt, and they are right.
But we, the members of the Tea Party and freedom loving patriots who cherish our liberties and independence. Our epiphanies came when we got up off the couch and stopped yelling at the TV. Our job is to become more active than ever before for the sake of America. It is our job to fight against the crushing power of the government that has robbed the people of their spirit and sovereignty. We need awaken our friends, co-workers, family and neighbors – our fellow Americans who have given up any real hope for their future and their children’s future, and save our country, just as Raoul Wallenberg saved the lives of 100,000 Jewish men women and children.
There is a Jewish proverb that says there are 36 truly righteous people of courage who emerge during the darkest times for the world to continue. They come forward and use their powers to defeat evil people. As soon as the battle is over they disappear. As soon as WWII was over, Raoul Wallenberg was detained as a spy by the Russians who captured Hungary, disappearing in the Soviet Union and to this day no one knows his fate.
Around the time of the fall of the Soviet Union and after Hungary’s liberation from Soviet authoritarian rule, a monument to Wallenberg was dedicated in Budapest and the Hungarian Raoul Wallenberg Association was formed. The American Raoul Wallenberg Scholarship committee held a human rights symposium and a freedom march through the streets of Budapest. It is with this same objective that we venture to install a statue of Raoul Wallenberg at the Holocaust Center at Queensborough Community College, the only Holocaust Resource Center on a College campus to give our kids the greatest lesson in the battle for the soul of America. It’s a lesson of courage, fearlessness, honor, commitment, duty, self-reliance, hard work and character and the battle of liberty against tyranny on a landscape consisting of good actors and bad. It’s a lesson in understanding our history, understanding the present times and never repeating our past mistakes. It is a clarion call for all who cherish their freedoms to heed the well known words of Edmund Burke: “All it takes for evil to prevail is for good men to do nothing.”
