Nine-year-old Joe Connor and his 11-year-old brother were waiting to celebrate their birthdays with their father. Their father was murdered that day.

You and your loved ones aren't immune to the bullets and bombs of the radicals regardless of your politics. You might support socialism and the goals of the radicals, or you might support George Washington, John F. Kennedy, and capitalism. It won't matter when the violent radicals detonate a bomb in a restaurant or firebomb a local business.

This isn't hyperbole. Unfortunately, this is reality.

The current violent radicals who are ruining the peace and tranquility of our nation are the spiritual ��� and in some cases, literally – the children of the violent radicals who once attempted to overthrow our Republic.

The FALN was a Cuban-trained communist terrorist organization that declared war on America. They bombed innocent American civilians to achieve their goals. They targeted places were civilians frequented, places like department stores and restaurants.

On January 24, 1975, the Fraunces Tavern in New York City was bombed by the FALN. Four people were killed and more than 50 people were injured. Joe Connor's father, a young stockbroker, was murdered that day.

President Bill Clinton released most of the FALN terrorists at the urging of his fellow Democrats in Congress and other forces seen and unseen. But it was President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden who released the bombmaker that murdered our fellow Americans. The Obama-Biden administration freed Oscar Lopez from federal prison.

The longtime director of the UMass Dartmouth Center for Labor Studies, Jose Soler, used to wear a shirt celebrating Oscar Lopez on the Massachusetts taxpayer-funded campus. Soler is now as dead as Lopez's victims, but Lopez is alive and still a hero to the left.

Don't pretend you aren't in the crosshairs of the radicals.
