Editor, Casa Grande Dispatch:
It was on Sept. 29, 1959, when Nikita Khrushchev addressed the full body of the United Nations, including a warning addressing our future as a free people in the United States of America.
There is one paragraph that stands out, "Your children's children will live under communism, you Americans are gullible. No, you won't accept communism outright, but we will keep feeding small doses of socialism until you will finally wake up and find you already have communism. We will not have to fight you. We will so weaken your economy until you will fall like overripe fruit into our hands. The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give it to those who would not."
Khrushchev was not the only person at that time calling for socialism in America. Saul Alinsky, who was raised by communist parents, lived in Chicago. Alinsky did not identify himself as a communist, but neither did he condemn them.
Saul Alinsky's ideology had a big influence on Hillary Clinton as well as Barack Obama, although Obama never met Alinsky as Hillary had. She supported Alinsky by raising money for Alinsky's organizations and foundations. Eventually Barack Obama became an instructor and director of one of Alinsky's foundations for three years.
Along came President Trump, who put a stop to the progression. The socialists tried everything to stop his MAGA agenda, with the phony investigation regarding Russian collusion and the impeachment of President Trump. All of which failed.
Then the socialists found the perfect candidate to run against President Trump's second term. Joe Biden was that candidate.
It is up to us to stop this insanity through peaceful means at the ballot box and share your beliefs with others. Americans must act, go to the ballot box in 2022 and support conservative candidates.
