Using donations for the poor to help power-seeking politicians attain their ends is pure Alinskyianism. One of Obamas Chicago mentors, Gregory Galluzzo - a former Jesuit priest, now married and Executive Director of the Gamaliel community organizing network was interviewed by a writer to whom he showed the training manual he uses with new organizers. Galluzzo told me that many new trainees have an aversion to Alinskys gritty approach because they come to organizing as idealists rather than realists. But Galluzzos manual instructs them to get over these hang-ups. We are not virtuous by not wanting power, it says. We are really cowards for not wanting power, because power is good and powerlessness is evil.
This is the group that prays to Obambi in the recently uncovered video.
