I’m looking into this; thanks!
Several of my conservative friends strongly recomend reading “Rules for Radicials”-they have told me it is an eye opener. I am going to read it over Christmas.
If you can find it, the “STORM” handbook is another worth reading. Its the group that Van Jones got his start with and lays out their vision of how they would like to see things play out.
Also “The coming insurrection”
The ‘blog is a good primer. I’ve been in the game for a while and only made the connection recently.
This info needs to circulate more in conservative circles - it has to “get out there”
Its always good to know what the enemy is thinking or reading. Mein Kampf is pretty eye opening in the context of our current world.
You can download the STORM handbook in pdf form from Beck’s site.
Absolutely, I have started to read Mein Kampf and will finish it in a couple of weeks-then on to “Rules”
There were a few intellectuals in the late 1920’s early 1930’s that read Mein Kampf and had a pretty good idea what Hitler was all about. Some the intellectuals were Jewish others not.
When I was about a third of the way through Rules for Radicals, I concluded that reading it tells volumes about the people who profess to following it as a bible, especially the ones pushing the legislation we have seen in the last several years.
The book explains a lot. And none of it is good.
I was going to dictate the entire thing and make an audiobook out of it to give to my close associates, who, like me, dont want a single red cent to go to anyone associated with writing, printing or distributing that hideous work. Unfortunately (or fortunately) I couldnt stomach hearing myself read it in a way that would make it easier on the ears to listen to (To put the inflection in the right places means you have to read it as if you believe it, and I gave up after one chapter.)
It is probably one of the most amoral, twisted works I have ever read. Given that Alinsky wrote a dedication to Lucifer, I shouldnt be surprised. The dedication was taken out of later editions so as not to offend the clergy he was attempting to recruit, but the version I read had it. Apparently, it was a copy from the 1980's, and they figured it was safe to put it back in.
From what I can see, reading that book enables one to understand what makes Obama (and his devoted followers) tick.
The very FIRST paragraph exposes very clearly what they are all about:
"What follows is for those who want to change the world from what it is to what they believe it should be. 'The Prince' was written by Machiavelli for the Haves on how to hold power. 'Rules for Radicals' is written for the Have-Nots on how to take it away."
It is unrestricted class warfare, pure and simple. And it is the bible of Obama and his like-minded followers.
Yes - think OWS
History has really failed us in respect to the nazis. We’ve spent so many years talking about the holocaust and the Jews that we’ve overlooked how the nazis came to power and we’re staring down the barrel of the same gun today.
BTW. Not saying that the holocaust isn’t extremely important, just that we shouldn’t overlook the path Germany took to get there.
It is unrestricted class warfare, pure and simple.
Covetousness, and rebellion.
Oh I am in complete agreement with you.
Just as “Rules” provided us with a roadmap of the left
so Mein Kampf gave us a roadmap about another kind of left-National Socialism-Hitler gave us lots of insights into his beliefs-not just about Jews but about almost everything.
Do you have any suggested reading for conservative training about the left?
Yep. They have that liberal POS hag Piven making guest appearances everywhere at their OWS crap.
Just plain evil.
The only way to beat back Alinsky tactics is to not fear the mob mentality.
If we learned anything from history is Marxists are bullies who cower when hit on the nose with a newspaper. Reagan showed us that. But it seems like we forgot.
