Back in the 1970s my daughters used to say: "Let's play princesses!" and a grand old time they had. I imagine that in progressive families, the cry was different. "Let's play community organizers!" No doubt a grand old time was had by the baby radicals too.
The trouble is that some people don't grow up. It's one thing to play community organizers in the back yard when you are a kid. It's another thing when real lives are at stake, as in Wisconsin.
A better name for "community organizer" is "radical suit," because community organizers are really the lefty version of the corporate suits that fly in to the plant in their executive jets, issue just enough ridiculous orders to prove that they haven't a clue, and then head back to the FBO and the next gig.
The definitive word on radical suits came out in 1885 in Zola's Germinal. It tells the story of the radical suit Etienne Lantier, who hikes into town to organize the coal miners of northern France in their strike against the mine owners over wage cuts. By the time Etienne's done helping, he's provoked the miners into violence and death, and their wages get cut anyway. At the end of the novel, Etienne heads back to Paris for his next gig after watching the miners return, defeated, back to work. It's a beautiful spring day, and he is dreaming revolutionary dreams, of "men springing up, a black avenging host... [that] would crack the earth asunder." If you want to read the official history of the radical suits then Howard Zinn's hagiography, A People's History of the United States is the book for you.
For the best part of two centuries the radical suits have been playing the workers for suckers

A little more must be said...
Yes, almost two centuries of this suits, and millions dead!
I have been thinking about this deaths...
I do think that is the final goal of this people, millions of deaths...
The main objective of community organizers is to teach people how to milk the system dry as quickly as possible. And the U. S. Treasury is pretty well emptied out.
They want to spend borrowed money on every harebrained scheme that comes along.
No wonder the unions have them in the bag.
