Posted on 09/05/2012 6:28:46 AM PDT by Clint N. Suhks
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 Obamas 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.
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.
Yeah, and he thinks the world should be a dictatorship of the proletariat.
Lemme see now, if it swims like a duck, and quacks like a duck, and loo - - - , NAH! It just can’t be!
Off topic, I am completely befuddled as to why they think they deserve some $35 million dollar estate, free and clear, like a couple of despots.
Good Posting. Thanks for pointing out the use of Saul Alinsky in the Convention speech. This quote by the Obamas shines a lot of light on what motivates their radical agenda. Now, if only the TV New commentators would ask the Obamas about how this quotation motivates them and their actions.
She and her roommate know their worshippers are to stupid to catch it. They no longer fear putting it out their for all to see and hear.

Is it now a requirement for the women of the Dem party to wear a sleeveless dress and be dog ugly?????
Her speech was directed towards, “Oprah-Nation.”
How many times did she make the subliminal blah blah blah gay people reference?
I wouldn’t have been surprised if she started quoting Karl marx and Vladimir Lenin
A dictatorship of the proletariat--with him and his buddies as the dictators. The proles wouldn't have any say, for their own good, you know.
And this surprises who???
Did anyone here watch her speech and if so, what did they think? I wasn’t able to. MSN said wonderful things about it it......”she was shining”, etc.... Was it really that good? That amazing?
She must have gone to teleprompter camp with 0bama because she was very polished and practiced.
That said it was full of Libtard buzz words and platitudes that would make you nauseous.
What IS Michelle and Barack’s idea of “the world as it should be”? . . and who died and made them Kings of the Universe? - (Perhaps they haven’t considered that their lofty idea of “meat” is another man’s idea of “poison”.)
Hitler also had one, Goering had two, but they were small.
The problem isnt her using the quote. The problem is people actually agree with this extremism.
Many of them have the same agenda.
Then how come he didn’t do what he was supposed to do and PROMISED to do over the last four years? Always blaming Bush or someone else for his own failures. He had two years where they were in total charge to get things done. What happeneed? Why didn’t they accomplish things then?
I really don’t know who these two think they are but... whatever they think they are or whomever they think they are ... they are finding out quickly they are NOT.
Grandeur. That is their bag. But... that’s the key... they think they know everything from what everyone should eat, drink, do, live, etc... THAT is THEIR MISTAKE as this country will do what it wants went it wants and how it wants for their families without any interference from government.
Chris Matthews also quoted Alinsky on Hardball yesterday...
The left has pretty much thrown everything against Romney and the only thing that sticks is the fact that he is a rich and successful businessman. Last night was nothing more than a Valerie Jarrett production featuring Michelle Obama and the start of her political career and the DNC confirming they are now the party of Chicago radical liberals and their god is Obama. The choice is socialism or the American Dream.
For instance, does anyone remember this news story from early November 2008?
"At a Virginia rally - 'If youll stand with me, then I know that we can win Virginia and we can win this election and we can finally bring the change we need to Washington,' Obama told the estimated crowd of 35,000. 'I feel like we got a righteous wind at our backs here.'
Then, there is this quote from Chairman Mao:
The ill wind of opportunism is falling, the righteous wind of socialism is on the rise.
Is it any wonder that the later White House spokesman Anita Dunn declared before an audience that Mao was her "go to" philosopher?
The ideas and words of Mao, Marx and Lenin play a dominant and unhidden role in the philosophy of this Administration.
On the other hand, one hears little of the familiar words and ideas of individual liberty and limited government power expressed so eloquently by Washington, Jefferson, Adams, and Madison.
Alinshy is not a radical....he was a flat out communist, as is our “dear leader” Obama!
There is no world as it should be as everyone’s view of how the world should be is different.
You answered your own question. Because they are a couple of despots.
Are there any transcripts anywhere? I would rather read drivel then listen to it.
Looks like she had her $15,000.00 make up job by Oprah’s make up man.

I don’t know. I can’t bear to listen to the convention as my nerves are shot. I’ll probably be on Xanax by the time the election comes around.
