Retired military veteran Lt. Col. Ronald G. Marlar received an email from the Obama campaign "Organizing for Action" in which he was rudely encouraged, "You should forward this." The email contained a video link to the Obama website where Sami Rahamim tells of his father's murder in a mass shooting that took place in Minneapolis in September 2012. While my heart goes out to Rahamim's family and I'm sure Lt. Col. Marlar's does as well, it was the emotional appeal for more gun control legislation that got under the retired veteran's skin, prompting him to write letter in response in which he said that Barack Obama is "the greatest threat to the US and the world, intentionally or not, since WWII.
Marlar's service to the United States spans over two decades, including service in Vietnam. He is also reaches out in efforts to bring the gospel of Jesus Christ to Israeli Jews and Muslims in America and abroad.
Lt. Col. Marlar's letter to Obama was also sent to Freedom Outpost and Mr. Marlar graciously gave me permission to present it to the audience.
Marlar points out the differences between his own father and Rahamim's father. Understand that Rahamim was a Jewish immigrant from Israel whose own parents had left Iran in the 1940s, Reuven started a sign business in the basement of his home in Minneapolis’ quiet, kind of out-of-the-way Bryn Mawr neighborhood. Marlar did not express any resentment against Rahamim's success or his legal immigration, but spoke of his father.
"My dad died at age 58 working as an exploited union laborer in a plant related to the national defense industry," he wrote. "He had served in the US Army as an enlisted man during WWII."
"At the time of my dad's death due to his work," Marlar continued, "I was in the US military, a combat veteran of the Southeast Asia War - the quagmire that JFK had gotten us into and LBJ had continued. I served for 21 years on active duty, 38 years total in uniform, fighting first against Communists, then against Islamic jihadists. I ended up partially disabled, missing body parts - thank God none ever visible - as a result of my service to the country."
Marlar also wrote of his son's service to our country. "My eldest son served 20 years in the US Armed Forces fighting Islamic jihadists and Socialists-Communists, first in Bosnia and Kosovo - the needless interventions that Clinton had gotten us into. Then my son fought in Iraq, during George W. Bush's tenure as President, after the Islamists had been decimated along with their Taliban Islamist training camps in Afghanistan."
He then recounted the oath that he and his son had taken saying that they were "without expiration dates to support and defend the US Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic."
He also spoke of the fact that both he and his father had served with "some fine Jewish men and women, people of many other races, colors, ethnicities, national origins, creeds and faith beliefs." He contrasts the former days of the USA being a melting pot to the fragmentation that has occurred "by Obama with his philosophies, policies and actions."
Then, like the men our country has been known to produce, he then declares the real threat to America and it's not firearms.
"Barack Hussein Barry Soetoro Obama, his handlers, the henchmen and women in his oppressive, tyrannical, despotic, evil Marixist, Islamic-influenced regime are the greatest threat to the US and the world, intentionally or not, since WWII."
Marlar's family has a long history of military service since before the American Revolution. As such, he asks the the following of the Obama campaign, "Has Obama ever served in the US military, in combat? Have you? Did Sami's father? Do you believe Sami will do so?"
His point was to demonstrate that he and his family actually fought, sweated, bled and gave their lives for the Constitution, including the Second Amendment, which the Obama administration is Hell bent on destroying.
He then blasted "You can fool some of the people some of the time, but not all of the people all of the time." Your work and this piece in particular is propaganda in the model of Joseph Goebbels. It appeals to emotions not reason, and that is so wrong. We studied and learned how to recognize propaganda in US schools in my school days. You cannot fool me or others."
Marlar told me "I most certainly do not expect a reply from Obama, his handlers or his henchmen or women.... They are deaf, blind and dumb to any feedback from people like me."
However, Lt. Col. Marlar is optimistic about dealing with the propaganda coming from the White House. "I hope we can flood the Organizing for Action (OfA) website with our stories about Gun Violence," he told me to the point that Obama's handlers, henchmen and women are forced to shut it down. It is nothing but a propaganda tool against the best interests of all US citizens and visitors.
Here's the video that demanded Lt. Col. Marlar respond, because unlike Barack Obama, Mr. Marlar takes his oath to support and defend the Constitution seriously, including putting his life on the line.
