Raoul Wallenberg’s Legacy for America’s Patriots

Pages: 1 2

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.”

Phil Orenstein is a Republican County Committeeman from Queens, N.Y. and a Manufacturing Manager at Orics Industries Inc., NY. He is a member of the National Conference on Jewish Affairs.

    Ok, it is impossible to take seriously a writer saying that "we live in a communist state in America". He obviously has never been to a communist state.
    Nevertheless, he shoots into his own foot…among the most "individualistic", "free-market" players currently operating are the people he despises, for example, Soros, who on his own broke the bank of England, bankrolls institutions and think-tanks, and essentially does what he wants. Orenstein is definitely not the sharpest knife in the drawer.

        Jesus! I think you just found Obama's campaign slogan for him! ;o)

      You are free to take this article any way you want to, but it makes a great deal of sense to me. Orenstein is absolutely correct when he says "we live in a communist state in America," and the examples he gives support this idea very well. Another example is the Chick-Fil-A issue. Who in a truly free country ever heard of elected officials–the Mayors–of large cities, offering their opinions as a basis for denying a company the right to do legitimate business in those cities? Twenty five years ago, this would have been unheard of; now not a peep is heard from the national media. On the other hand, how do you know Orenstein "has never been to a communist state?" Then you offer the very poor example of George Soros, who despises free markets, even as he takes advantage of them; and who took the assets of fellow Jews in WWII Europe, while Wallenberg tried to save them. You shouldn't mention anything about "the sharpest knife in the drawer", if all you can do is shoot the messenger.

        A communist state is a police state, with police, secret and otherwise, looking over your shoulder, controlling what you say and do, and if it is out of party line, throwing you into jail (not metaphorically, LITERALLY). It is also a state that has only ONE party. It is also a state where the production of good is in complete control of the state, a central bureaucracy. This designs every item down to the last detail, including the color of women's shoes. A communist state is also one where health care and education are free, and where toddlers are sent to training and education camps for communist indoctrination. In a communist state you wait for 5-10 year before you get a car or a flat, and you cannot chose. Do I need to go on??? This is a communist state. Ok? Current Muslim state overlap with these states, because also they have a thought police, and the punish different thinking with JAIL, not newspaper editorials or, as you mention, "offering opinions". BTW, the banks, the auto industry and health care are not nationalized. Or has a middle-aged working person suddenly got access to free health care? Who spreads this nonsense about nationalizations? Bailing out is not nationalization, it's the state giving money to companies/banks.
        Orenstein's 'America is communist' could be a hyperbole, but it is so far removed from what America is, that it doesn't make any sense, and is very offensive to all the people who constructed America and still make it great.

        The example of Soros is excellent. Orenstein celebrates Wallenberg for his individualism…if Soros is not an individualist, then who? This is independent of what his values are.

    The President's economic policy, still after 4 years is NOT working. He can't blame George Bush anymore and it is all on his shoulders.

    Objectors to nonviolence often make the claim that World War II was the ultimate example of a justified war.  How could it be wrong to fight a war against Hitler, a war to save Jewish lives?  And how could nonviolence have been effective against such a tyrannical power? 

    …..The high generals who served under Hitler admitted, during the Nuremberg trials and in their own extant writings, that they were confounded by nonviolent resistance. They knew how to crush enemy armies, but the subterfuge of nonviolence couldn't be fought in any efficient way.

      Is your comment sarcasm? Or are you really THAT naive? Because Nazis certainly weren't bothered by killing anyone, armed or not, pacifist or not and neither are islamofascists. Ditto for Pol Pot, Mao Tse Tung and Stalin. Nazis didn't even relent when it came to the slaughter of Jewish children (and neither did the muslims who went after the Fogel family).

        I understand the gist of what your saying…I don't live in Israel, and my Jewish relatives were in the United states during the Holocaust; and because I'm a half Jew your question is the first time, I have ever been asked that question.

        And, because I'm getting up there in years almost 50, and starting to look more like my father whom is Jewish and having to deal, with mostly coded antisemitism…as a US citizen it's illegal to walk around with a gun, like it would not be in Israel, and America is to diversified to arm itself against terrorist groups such as the Muslim brotherhood; and, like in Germany, when I seen the Muslim Brotherhood marching down the street in New York recently; it felt like I was in a waking nightmare, seeing terrorists literally legally marching down a New York street.

        I think it's very important that in this present day and age, that Jews, and half Jews etc., put aside their ideological differences and help each other through this time of fundamentalist Islam; for example, if the State of Israel would put out a International press release about the dangers of the Muslim brotherhood, and how to avoid them, that is one of many pacifistic strategies; that the terrorists are hoping Jews and half Jewish such as myself will not see until it is to late.

        I won't go into all the different kinds of strategic pacifism, because I don't want to give the fundamentalist Islamic terrorists ideas about how they can be confronted; but it is a way to oppose them that works.
