Skip to comments.Hillary Clinton's SUPPRESSED Thesis finally on line in its entirety
Posted on 08/01/2007 11:30:59 AM PDT by AndrewWalden
A PDF copy of Hillary Rodhams senior thesis at Wellesley arrived in our inbox this morning. it is titled:
There is only one fight an analysis of the Alinsky Model
Although I have no loving wife to thank for keeping the children away while I wrote, I do have many friends and teachers who have contributed to the process of thesis-writing.
We have not had a chance to review and will do so today. Regardless, we wanted to post this as soon as possible to share with everyone. Hillary is running for President and it is important to know what she really believes. This document was hidden from public view during her husbands presidency -= an apparent favor to the Clintons fromt he President of the university - and interest in it fell when the Clintons left office. Now with Hillary a top Democratic candidate for President the importance of this document has frothed to the surface again....

This is the first time this hidden thesis has made it in its entirety online. Please download a copy for yourself to read and forward this to all your email lists. The Clintons will try to suppress this, but if it is everywhere on the internet, they will fail.
When that reporter (who died in 9-11) said that she’d read the thesis, she said it was 51 pages. This is longer. modified?
Well, you know, I wrote a ton of stuff in college that was pretty crazy. But I sure don’t agree with almost everything I scribbled down from those days.
But then, this is Hillary.
Bump for later - too many trying to hit the site!
The late Barbara Olson’s article LINK:
Olson said it was 75 pages, which is correct if you don’t count the appendices. This is a true and correct copy of the entire thesis including the appendices and cartoons.
Bump for later.
Me too. I wanted to be a "store front" lawyer for the poor and ACLU.
My first ever vote was for Nixon in 1972 and has been right ever since.
Wow. Cool! Thanks. Now to the library to get Revele for Radicals by Saul alinsky.
As a freshman in college I did a speech in speech class on “Why everybody should ride bicycles instead of cars.” I readily admit that my speech contained idiotic and ill-conceived ideas. Now the key question is, will Hillary make a similar clear-cut disavowal of her old college ideas.
bump for later
Clinton in-house-leak to prevent an October Surprise?
There is only one fight
an analysis of that LEWinsky Model.....
You have to love the part where she thanks Alinsky for offering her a job. hehe.
She is intelligent and cold blooded. This is a scary document.
Larger font size or changed margin settings?
Of course...it's August, the time of minimum public attention paid to media....
bump assuming it has not be sanitized.
“But I sure dont agree with almost everything I scribbled down from those days.”
SONG LYRICS; “YOU!”
“You haven’t changed at all/
Since you were seventeen/
When you raised your voice/
And so impressed yourself/
That today you STILL believe/
All the silly good intentions/
In your adolescent master plan...”
I wrote this about 14 years ago in mind of the loudmouth sector of the “Boomers”. I don’t believe I have ever written truer words.
When you read the thesis, you will see that for the last 38 years she has lived what she wrote.
There is only one
an analysis of that LEWinsky Model.....
If I ran for president and someone got a hold of my college papers, I’d have a lot of explaining to do. I was a Marxist back then. Like many Marxists, I also had issues with narcissism and depression. Many of those papers are downright embarrassing now.
On the other hand, I could explain my intellectual journey away from there. The question I would ask of Hillary is “explain your intellectual journey away from this thesis. How has your thought process changed?”
If we got an answer that sounded honest, I could respect that. I still wouldn’t vote for her, but I would respect her for answering the questions
The problem is that very little that Hillary says sounds particularly honest. She seems to have a focus group stuck in her head. When she said she’d always been a Yankees fan, for example, that on its face is possible. But there would have to be a story there.
How does a girl from the Chicago suburbs become a Yankee fan? A favorite uncle from Manhattan who took her to games? She thought Mantle was cute? But she never had a story. All she had was the poll-driven claim that she was always a Yankee fan.
If someone asked her about her thesis, she’d probably have six or seven poll-driven responses. “I still believe in social justice.” “As a mother, I’ve learned that you have to compromise.” Etc. Etc. But she’d be unlikely to tell the real story of her intellectual journey (if there was one) from that thesis to her current views. Hillary will do anything to keep the real Hillary from making an appearance.
I’m still waiting for one of her cohorts to squeal on her about the death of Vince Foster, the stolen FBI documents, and the missing Rose law firm documents.
Can they be silent forever?
If it helps her politically, of course she will.
She can always say that she no longer subscribes to those "radical" ideas, but can we trust that she is telling the truth?
And it is 15 months away from an "October Surprise" time frame.
Is there an html version of it?
We should all download and save this quickly. The Hillary machine will try very hard to get this pulled.
“What does the radical want? He wants a world in which the worth of the individual is recognized....A world based on the morality of mankind...The radical believes that all peoples should have a high standard of food, housing and health. The radical places human rights far above property rights. He is fro free, universal public education and recognizes this as fundamental to the democratic way of life... Democracy to him is working from the bottom up....the Radical believes completely in real quality of opportunity for all peoples regardless of race color or creed.” - (quote from Saul Alinsky)
Much of what Alinsky professes does not sound “radical”. his are the words used in schools and churches, by our parents and their friends, by our peers. The difference is that Alinsky really believes in them and recognizes the necessity of changing the present structure of our lives in order to realize them.
This is a sample of what is inside this thesis.
Is there an html version of it?
Well said. Very well said.
When you read the thesis from front to back, you will see that there is no intellectual journey away from this thesis. This truly is the “Rosetta Stone” of Hillary’s life and thought. The things she says in this thesis are echoes every day in her public pronouncements.
"Exploiting nonrealistic conflict". "...'rubbing raw the sores of discontent' without any specific goal in mind.
Sounds like a DNC modus operandi if I'd ever heard one.
I was lucky in that I did three years as an 11B before I went to College but my brother, who graduated in 76, still spouts the Marxist line.
If we got an answer that sounded honest, I could respect that. I still wouldnt vote for her, but I would respect her for answering the questions
BINGO! Your post nailed it!
It would be hypocritical to take as gospel anything anyone wrote in college. But this should be a great starting point for any serious questioning on how her critical-thinking skills evolved from her senior year.
Won’t be reading it. I’ve seen enough of Senator Clinton to know what she thinks. Ugh.
The question I would ask of Hillary is explain your intellectual journey away from this thesis. How has your thought process changed?
If she were to answer anything other than, "It Hasn't", then she would be lying.
I do not want to ever be held responsible today for what I said in college.
“Can they be silent forever?”
If they don’t want to be “silenced” forever, they will.
“the difference between a ‘liberal’ and a ‘radical’ is that a liberal refuses to fight for the goals he professes.”
“To induce conflict is a risk because there is no guarantee that it will remain controllable.”
“Only through social equality can men determine the structure of their own social arrangements.”
...Alinsky received a fellowship in criminology with a first assignment to get a look at crime from the inside of gangs. He attached himself to the Capone gang, attaining a perspective from which he viewed the gang as a huge quasi-public utility serving the people of Chicago.
Well that sure 'splains some stuff...
