"Obama learned his lesson well. I am proud to see that my father's model for organizing is being applied successfully beyond local community organizing to affect the Democratic campaign in 2008. It is a fine tribute to Saul Alinsky as we approach his 100th birthday."
Saul Alinsky explained his community organizing tactics in his book "Rules for Radicals." His game plan was to divide the community into the Haves and the Have Nots, make the Have Nots believe they are unjustly treated by the Haves, build resentment against the American social and economic system, use church congregations to mobilize street agitators, and lobby government for higher taxes and big-spending welfare programs in order to confiscate the wealth and power of the Haves and turn it over to the Have Nots.
Alinsky dedicated his book to Lucifer, "the first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom."

I have never given a dime to the Campaign for Human Development, after I read a list of their charities the first year they went into business. And I also never give a dime to Catholic Charities, since some of their money goes to good causes and some is diverted to very questionable ones.
Support your parish—the building needs to be heated and maintained. Support your bishop, even though some of the funds may go astray—but we still need to keep the diocese going. But when it comes to charities, donate to the outfits that are really working for good, not the Communist ones.
Giving to Catholic Charities is like giving to the RNC. Some of the money may do some good, but others will go to help RINOs defeat conservatives. Target your donations to REAL Catholic charities and causes, like Priests for Life or the Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist (look them up).
Catholic church, pro-abortion and pro-ACORN.
before flaming me the CC has for 35 years done NOTHING to pols who support abortion.
Young Alinsky lives in Medfield,MA...a *very* swanky suburb of Boston.One of the richest in state,in fact.Lots of horses in that town...if ya catch my drift.His house is assessed by the town at about $500K which means that it could bring $750K at least.Above is a picture of the house from the Town of Medifield's official website.
I guess that being the son of a Maoist agitator is a pretty profitable deal these days.
CCHD Catholic Campaign for Human Development PING
All these religious groups, Catholic and mainstream Protestant, contriibute to all kinds of organizations which are workinig to undermine western civilization.
Lots of the money goes to political activists like ACORN, and others to anti-war, pacifist, and anti-gun groups.
Unless the Christian rank and file wake up, take a stand, stop being sheep, and demnad that their clergy and churches stop this slipping an sliding towards third worldism, our desecedants will be growing up as Muslims.
Raymond Arroyo on World Over Last Friday on EWTN that the Bishop in charge of the CAMPAING FOR HUMAN DEVELOPMENT said that no monies were given to ACORN.
When Arroyo questioned the Bishop, the bishop agreed that while the monies in fact are fungible and could be used for the ACORN project.
The best thing that anybody can do is to not donate to the CAMPAIN FOR HUMAN DEVELOPMENT this Sunday, November 23, 2008.
Since money is fungible, there is a good possibility that the Diocese will assess the parish for the monies that are not collected from their regular collections. There is a precedent for this action in the diocese of Atlanta. When Archbishop Wilton Gregory does not collect enough money for his ANNUAL BISHOPS APPEAL. The Parish is assesed for the monies that are not donated to the Diocese from their regular collections which represents 70% of the weekly collections. Archbishop Wilton Gregory gets 30% of our weekly support to the Parish.
Remember these Bishops and Cardinals with the exception of a few Bishops like Martino nare politicians and they want to advance their careets and be included in the social Cirles like Obama, Ted Kennedy, Bob Casey Jr, and the other Pro Abortion Politicians.
I contribute to my parish, to the FSSP, and occasionaly to EWTN. I don’t trust anything else.
The Church is wondering why 52% of Catholics voted for live birth abortions when the Church is paying for them???
But Saul Alinsky forgot that in the end, THE REAL MESSIAH DEFEATS the enemy.
Anyone noticing you really can’t tell the difference between politics and religion anymore? They just say what they want and do what they want. They both will use fear to push you in the direction they want for purely selfish and self serving motives. Amazing how similiar bedfellows will become!!
I read somewhere recently that Catholic Charities isn’t giving any more money to Acorn. A bit late, but welcome all the same.
I heard that they will not be contributing to ACORN this year. Does anyone know if that’s true?
Thread which shows that Bishops cut off ACORN when they found out how corrupt ACORN is:
