While many on both sides of the political isle dismiss it as unimportant and give this issue little to no time in political debates, we continue, as a nation, to face an ideological threat. While some dismiss the threat of Islamism altogether as over-hyped, others point the finger of blame at America for fueling the fans of hatred. These claims are not new; in fact the left repeated these talking points in the days and weeks after 9/11. In an important documentary anti communist cold warrior and member of the Reagan administration Frank Gaffney explores the Islamist infiltration of parts of both parties and multiple administrations. Gaffney reveals that in fact the goal of Islamists like the Muslim Brotherhood and it’s affiliates is a caliphate and a defeat of the West. In other words like the communists before them, Islamo-fascism remains the ideological threat of our time. And the only way to end this ideological battle is in the words of President Reagan “We win and they lose”.
Adapting Alinsky-like tactics, they conceal their nefarious intentions by hiding behind ideas like wanting to end the “occupation” or reexamine American foreign policy; they really want the defeat of the West and to use our freedoms against us. We can just hope that whoever the Republican party decides to nominate in 2016 will take this ideological battle seriously. Below is the link to the introduction to this important documentary by a leading conservative. The Boston bombings of last year and the Fort Hood attacks in 2009 serve as reminders that the enemy is still motivated and have infiltrated America. The failure to name it what it is the aftermath of the Fort Hood attacks and Boston bombings point to a covert attempt to impose a politically correct sharia compliant speech code on U.S. government branches. This should not go unchallenged as the battle for the preservation of freedom and liberty are connected to this. As President Reagan once said, “freedom is never more then one generation away from extinction.”
