WTH #666: M.Obama Quotes Saul Alinsky in Campaign Speech
Clash Daily ^ | 8/28/12 | staff

Posted on 08/29/2012 9:20:22 AM PDT by Nachum

Last night Michelle Obama used lines from Rules for Radicals, a radical Far Left book by Saul Alinsky (“father of community organizing” and a notorious far-left radical) in her DNC Convention speech.

Gateway Pundit nailed her:

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 Alinsky’s book, Rules for Radicals.

“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 won’t do – that we have an obligation to fight for the world as it should be.”

Here’s an excerpt from Chapter 2 of Saul Alinsky’s 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.“

Dan Reihl writes that although Gateway Pundit points out that Michelle Obama quoted concepts from Rules for Radicals in her speech last night and suggests she heard it in church, more likely, it was Barack Obama that came up with it due to the individual who started him off in his activist pursuits – Jerry Kellman, an organizer working on Chicago’s far South Side.

Kellman was an Alinsky protege.

After college Obama moved to Chicago to be part of the Jerry Kellman organization as a community organizer. [Kellman was a Saul Alinsky protege.] Among the primary goals of Alinsky was radical socialism and redistribution of wealth. Alinsky taught his proteges to “HIDE” their true goals by any means necessary. Lying was fine. The objective of Alinsky and Kellman was to turn people against the white establishment.

Do the Obamas really think that all America is as blind as the Obamanauts and starry-eyed Democrats at the convention so as to not see through the Obama’s ‘touchy-feely, God and country’ charade – aware of their Marxist agenda and what they are really saying?

That’s a great accomplishment - the DNC convention hasn’t taken place yet!

Yeah, he’ll be really angry with the fact that Obama is the best he could do.

I was torn as to what song to offer. This one should be appropriate for the DNC convention I think:

FWIW

August 2008. Michelle Obama at the DNC. Widely stated elsewhere that she used references to Saul Alinsky, at that convention.

To me it means the writer hates the rich more than he/she loves the poor....but your take is very good as well.

When I read what the Wookie said, and compare it to the quote from Alinsky in context, it seems she’s twisted what he said 180 degrees. He seems to be arguing we need to work with the world as it is, and she’s saying the opposite.

“Tax the rich, feed the poor
Till there are no rich no more”

And then the poor, having served their purpose as ‘useful idiots’, can go ahead and starve just like they did in every single commie nation that’s ever existed.

And all this time I thought it was just a dum-azz lyric designed to help sell the song, thus making the writer rich enough to care.

:^)

Thanks, Nachum, for digging this up. We all need to be reminded of exactly what these people are.
And that other Alinskyite, radical worshipped Hillary Clinton, should be kept on our radar as well.

We should shove their communism in their face as often and loudly as possible Cincinna.

Liars hate it when that is done to them.

You know- that is cruel and unusual punishment. I just woke up, sipping on my coffee and then you put that in front of me. I bet you were a mean kid growing up...
