This is a cartoon from 1948.  How do you think they knew then how things would be now?

Probably the same way Ben franklin did when he said "We gave you a republic, if you can keep it"

Because tyranny is insidious ... and the price of liberty is eternal vigilance.

"And to worship God in your own way" as long as it's the God they approve of, and you're worshipping Him in a way that they find to be "traditional" ...

 I love the old cartoons!  This is a good one!  People have drank that poison for far too long now.  I truly believe Americans have forgot what "true" freedom means.  I also believe many have forgotten why people from different countries originally came to America!

This is just old anti-communist propaganda from the beginning of the cold war, back when unions were equated with the encroachment of communism into the US.
