Michelle Obama quotes lines some radicalFar Left book in her DNC Convention speech.
What to make of Michelle Obama's use the terms, The world as it is and The world as it should be? From whence do they originate? Try Chapter 2 of Saul Alinskys book, Rules for Radicals. In last night's speech, Michelle Obama said something that peeked my curiousity. She said:
"Barack stood up that day," talking about a visit to Chicago neighborhoods, "and spoke words that have stayed with me ever since. He talked about The world as it is and The world as it should be..."
And, "All of us driven by a simple belief that the world as it is just wont do that we have an obligation to fight for the world as it should be."
Heres an excerpt from Chapter 2 of Saul Alinskys book, Rules for Radicals:
"The means-and-ends moralists, constantly obsessed with the ethics of the means used by the Have-Nots against the Haves, should search themselves as to their real political position. In fact, they are passive but real allies of the Haves The most unethical of all means is the non-use of any means... The standards of judgment must be rooted in the whys and wherefores of life as it is lived, the world as it is, not our wished-for fantasy of the world as it should be."

It's just a guess but maybe she heard it at church?

The world as it is, with American being the becon of hope to the world with the strongest founding princples and moral values, the freest, most propserous, most powerful, greatest force for good Republic the world has ever known is something they want to change.
The world as it should be, according to them, would see America toppled, her liberty, her prosperity, her impact for good, and her power crippled and replaced by a MArxistic society engrafted into an internaional order of their own making.
No doubt, just enough ‘code words’ so her ‘audience’ would be happy. Calmed the rioters, protesters, arsonists, anarchists just enough! Signalling they could all go home and wait for the Repub convention....no Recreate ‘68 after all!
Yep. And all you had to do was cut & paste that from the other thread, but it was well worth repeating.
Ya’ll just hatin’.........;)
The world as it is and The world as it should be...”
Thesis, antithesis..................synthesis, rinse, repeat
Hegel, Alinsky, Obama et company
Did she credit the source? Or is this another Biden plagiarism moment?
...And Hillary also sat at the feet of Saul the Master.
I'm sure that it was the recitation of these code word that started all the tears flowing in the audience of commies... And I'm certain that in their heads they were chanting "We're almost in the Whitehouse...". Obammy and his ilk MUST be crushed...
BO and MO are scary.
I’ll never forget LBJ saying he was going to take from the Haves and give to the Have nots in one of his speeches.
His Great Society thing was a disaster, can you imagin what these two have in store should he be elected?
Rush reading this now. Hi, Rush! ;)
Hey pissant, Rush is reading this on his show as I type.
Nice find and yes, Michelle was recommended this reading in Sunday School.
The dialectic process is alive, well and being implemented.
Why didn’t se just waved the Little Red Book?
Oh, sorry. They are towing the Marxist-Leninist line.
Rush also said she was packaged like a Stepford Wife. That was my thought as well. The Mrs. June Cleaver we saw last night is NOT the Mrs. Obama she really she is.
Did you hear Rush’s clip of Ms. Mika saying that the “real” Michelle wasn’t there last night?
And, “All of us driven by a simple belief that the world as it is just wont do that we have an obligation to fight for the world as it should be.”
Definitely one of the prime symptoms of elitism: presumptuousness, know-it-allism, they’re aren’t trying to sell ideas, or convince us of their point-of-view. They already know, on a monumental scale, just how the world should be. No input from you wanted or needed.
woah! you have el rushbo’s attention? good on ya!!
excellent find indeed. give it legs.
