Latest Saul Alinsky Items
One has to wonder if congratulations are in order for President Obama. The U.S. economy is in ruins, the country in crisis, the world in chaos. Was this all a purposeful plan, or is Mr. Obama simply an inexperienced, incompetent, bumbling Inspector Clouseau in the White House?
"In the beginning, the devil created. ..." Wait a minute. That's not how the Bible begins.
In "Rules for Radicals," Saul Alinsky advises leftist organizers to antagonize opponents. "The real action is in the enemy's reaction," he writes in his 1971 classic strategy manual. "The enemy properly goaded and guided in his reaction will be your major strength."
There's a time and a place for everything, and Saturday's lampooning of the great American tradition of gathering on the Mall for a transcendent cause was neither. The pep rally led by left-wing cheerleaders Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert proved once again that liberals don't understand that the American majority has rejected the big-government philosophy.
On Tuesday there's a good chance "Mickey Mouse" will help bolster the vote count of Pennsylvania Senate candidate Joe Sestak and other Democratic hopefuls across the country.
This may not be the end, but I think I can see it from here. Ever so hesitatingly and oh so painfully, I hate to admit that I am beginning to wonder why Americans even bother to vote anymore on controversial issues. If the America-hating liberals, socialists and Marxists in charge don't like the outcome of a decision by "we the people," they either sue and get a black-robed, leftist federal judge to declare the results unconstitutional or they get the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) to sue for them. Hey, if you can't beat us at the polls, take us to court or sue us in the bizarro world of the corrupt American anti-justice court system. Freedom for sale at what price?
It is abundantly clear that Barack Obama, the president of the United States, is no friend of this country or the office he holds.
Perhaps it is time to get out Saul Alinsky's "Rules for Radicals" and read up on holding people accountable for their actions ("Panel allows mosque close to ground zero," Page 1, Wednesday). From it we might glean that we should take out ads naming the members of the Landmarks Preservation Commission, who this week voted to let an Islamic cultural center come within blocks of the former site of the World Trade Center.
Bienvenido. Welcome. As the November elections draw nearer, political campaigns most assuredly will heat up and become more tense and filled with rancor. As with any election, you have to dig for the truth.
