Saul Alinsky Died 40 Years Ago Today

Posted on 06/12/2013 6:21:26 PM PDT by artichokegrower

Saul David Alinsky (January 30, 1909 – June 12, 1972)

From Playboy interview:

ALINSKY: ... if there is an afterlife, and I have anything to say about it, I will unreservedly choose to go to hell. PLAYBOY: Why? ALINSKY: Hell would be heaven for me. All my life I've been with the have-nots. Over here, if you're a have-not, you're short of dough. If you're a have-not in hell, you're short of virtue. Once I get into hell, I'll start organizing the have-nots over there. PLAYBOY: Why them? ALINSKY: They're my kind of people.

In that Alinsky died in Carmel by the Sea California he didn't exactly hang out with the have-nots.

My bad. At least he is still dead other than in the honor given to him by the President of the United States of America.

Alinsky was yet another of those people afflicted with good intentions and bad (or a lack of) moral principles.

But the R party does need to study him, alas, if only to learn what to expect from the new Left-of-the-Kremlin version of the D party.

The people in the Chicago region are exceptionally stupid. Alinsky’s cr*p was easily accepted by them ~ but you’ll notice nobody else does the Alinsky stuff ~ just the Chicago crowd.

He’s been successful lately, hasn’t he? More successful after dying than Fat Elvis! You can curse him all you want, but we need to face and counter his methodology, which is being applied with much success in front of our lying eyes.

Genius as in ‘hitler’ kind of genius? I don’t know, I”m of the opinion that it doesn’t require brains to drum up hatred of the victim crowd. It is far easier to hate someone who has something you want, than it is to work for it. Maybe I’m not understanding you evidence of genius.

“Hell would be heaven for me” — what a lie of Satan he believed.

The Bible has a lot to say about hell, but nothing about anyone organizing anyone. It is a place of darkness and where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth (Matthew 25:30). It is the eternal fire which has been prepared for the devil and his angels (Matt. 25:41), but at the end of the age, at the great white throne judgment all the wicked dead will be judged according to their deeds and will be thrown into hell [the lake of fire]; everyone whose name was not found written in the book of life will be thrown there (Revelation 20:11-15).

It is a place where there is no LIGHT, no God, no glory of God, no compassionate Savior, no love, no peace, no hope, and many more blessings of His presence.

It is a place where Satan and his angels will torment their servants forever. Alinsky is in Hades now, a place of torment as well (Luke 16:19-31), waiting for that day when Hades and its dead will be emptied into the lake of fire.

the usual leftist good intentions, mostly, things like helping the poor and “downtrodden” or whatever like that.

The point is, there are lots of people who help the poor without tearing down society in the process

so many of the leftists tend to go off the rails in their methods and techniques. I ascribe this to poor parenting (failure to teach the kids good Strong moral values).

But anyway, that’s just what I think.
Thanks for your note...
best regards,

Funny how commies have a tendency to be rich.

Come from rich, comfortable families,

never worked in an actual "job" that required actual sweat-producing work.

But they're down for the cause, man.

Mr. Alinsky, how many black people do you know?

That's irrelevant. I CARE about black people.

Do you live in a diverse community, you know, with brown and black people?

No, I'm more comfortable living with people who don't tag my house with graffiti, and don't threaten to rape my wife.

Isn't that hypocritical?

No. Look, diversity is for the little people. If you haven't noticed, I said that I CARED about minorities.

Doesn't mean I want to live with them. Jeez.

You must be a racist. I mean republican.

I just had this thought today:

What the saved experience as the warmth of God's eternal love is experienced by the damned as eternal fire.

Alinsky never had any good intentions about helping the poor. He saw them as tools and wanted even more of them and wanted them to suffer for his own goals. Satan laid claim to Alinsky early.

I’m not going to do it tonight but I’ll see if I can dig up some articles that quote him on his true feelings about the poor.

Must read: Saul Alinsky’s 25,000 word interview with Playboy Magazine in 1972

Saul Alinsky was a liar.. that believed lies.. was raised on lies, couldn’t tell the truth if he backed over it and tripped..

Much like any democrat.. but a few were more evil than he.. they trained him..
BAd News.. a malefactor.. the gene pool was cleaner after he died..

Yeah, the crowd that now controls the White House and the American news media, has passed communist health care, and is about to finish off America with "immigration reform". That crowd.
