Posted on 09/16/2008 2:07:38 AM PDT by markomalley
Most people have not heard of Saul Alinsky. He was a radical of the first order. His tactics, strategies, and thinking influenced a number of modern leftist politicians, including Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.
According to the Washington Post, a group of Alinskys disciples hired Barack Obama, a 23-year-old Columbia University graduate, to organize black residents on the South Side, while learning and applying Alinsky's philosophy of street-level democracy. In 1990, an article Obama had written on community organizing appeared in the book "After Alinsky: Community Organizing in Illinois."
What frequently is ignored in all of this is Alinskys book, Rules for Radicals. The book is an instruction manual for left wing agitators and breaks down the core components of community organizing. Both Clinton and Obama were students of the book. Clinton wrote a college thesis on the book. Obama lived the book, applying its principles to organizing communities in Illinois.
Is ACORN Using Barrys Lessons?
During Barack Obamas stint as a community organizer, he worked for ACORN, the radical group that directly applies Saul Alinskys tactics to agitate for a more socialist America.
In 1996, when Obama received the communist New Partys endorsement, a local Chicago socialist writing in New Ground, the newsletter of the Chicago Democratic Socialists of America, noted, As the single 800 pound gorilla in the Chicago New Party, it doesn't leave a lot of room for newcomers to participate except on ACORN's terms. This will make it difficult for the New Party to have a life apart from ACORN.
Barack Obama had, at the time, a very tight relationship to ACORN.

ACORN = A Communist Organizer’s Radical Nuance
"Lest we forget at least an over-the-shoulder acknowledgment to the very first radical: from all our legends, mythology, and history (and who is to know where mythology leaves off and history begins or which is which), the first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom Lucifer."
Needless to say, this was removed from later publications to make it more "palatable" to clergy who he hoped would be radicals.
See my tagline.
Read about it here:
“Since 2004, ACORN has helped more than 1.7 million low- and moderate-income and minority citizens apply to register to vote...”
“ACORN is a non-profit, non-partisan social justice organization...”
My guess is that Obama’s share of this voting block is just under 100%.
McCain gets the remainder.
My guess is on voting day he gets more like 150-200% of their votes.
Ebonics does allow for such.
How the ^$%^# does a commie group like ACORN get taxpayer money? I have yet to hear a politician run a platform in favor of it. Yet ACORN gets millions.
We are being sold out by the criminals in congress.
“How the ^$%^# does a commie group like ACORN get taxpayer money? I have yet to hear a politician run a platform in favor of it. Yet ACORN gets millions.”
ACORN is a solidly black organization. As such, the government rushes to throw money at it, only encouraging its marxist agenda.
Proof read your tag line.
Did I hear last night that Obama was the attorney for Acorn for three years?
It had to have been on H&C and everyone talking over everyone else as usual.
ACORN = Associated Community Organizations for (Marxist) Revolution Now
AKA - "The Brownshirt Doctrine."
too much time, I don’t have enough time!
(I must have deleted it in my haste...it said: “Who is Saul Alinsky and why is Barack Obama is a disciple of his methods?”
