In 2009 the NEA was promoting the works of Saul Alinsky, where they made it a point to highlight Alinsky's formula:
"Agitate + Aggravate + Educate + Organize."
From The History of the Fabian society: (Page 29)
However, as I have said, in 1885 our differences [from other Socialists] were latent or instinctive; and we denounced the capitalists as thieves at the Industrial Remuneration Conference, and, among ourselves, talked revolution, anarchism, labour notes versus pass-books, and all the rest of it, on the tacit assumption that the object of our campaign, with its watchwords, 'EDUCATE, AGITATE, ORGANIZE,' was to bring about a tremendous smash-up of existing society, to be succeeded by complete Socialism.
And again, on page 13:
"Socialism Made Plain," the social and political Manifesto of the Democratic Federation (undated, but apparently issued in 1883), is a much stronger document. It deals with the distribution of the National Income, giving the workers' share as 300 out of 1300 millions sterling, and demands that the workers should "educate, agitate, organise" in order to get their own.
The wording is most interesting. 'In order to get their own'? Isn't that what the Occupiers are saying? Some rich fat cat stole from them and they need economic justice to get it back.
Aren't coincidences nice? The world seems to be full of them.
reminds me of that nutso kid at the Paul Wellstone Memorial...
“WE’RE GONNA ORGANIZE! WE’RE GONNA ORGANIZE! WE’RE GONNA ORGANIZE! WE’RE GONNA ORGANIZE! WE’RE GONNA ORGANIZE!...”
Is there video of that? An article or something? Thanks.
I will have to try and find it for you. I know Rush Limbaugh used to play the audio clip. Mind blowing stuff.
Ok, that helps. Rick Kahn is who that was, according to this.
=========KAHN: We have to stand up. We are going to stand up together, and we’re going to organize! (screaming) We’re going to organize!=============
I find this fascinating. All of it, not just Kahn’s words.
After the 6 minute mark.
It’s just creepy.
Awesome quote, thanks Jeff Head!
“We are socialists, we are enemies of todays capitalistic economic system for the exploitation of the economically weak, with its unfair salaries, with its unseemly evaluation of a human being according to wealth and property instead of responsibility and performance, and we are determined to destroy this system under all conditions. Adolph Hitler, May 1, 1927: Toland, John “Hitler” 1976.
