Skip to comments.Blast from the past: Reading Hillary Rodham's Hidden Thesis
Posted on 05/30/2014 2:35:43 PM PDT by BenLurkin
Before reading Hillary Rodham's assessment of the old radical from Chicago Alinsky's compelling personality, his exceptional charm, and the limitations of his anachronistic tactics its important to understand how the document was sealed...
Just as conservative authors have speculated, it was the Clintons who asked Wellesley in 1993 to hide Hillary Rodham's senior thesis from the first generation of Clinton biographers, according to her thesis adviser and friend, professor Alan H. Schechter, who describes taking the call from the White House.
Wellesley's president, Nannerl Overholser Keohane, approved a broad rule with a specific application: The senior thesis of every Wellesley alumna is available in the college archives for anyone to read -- except for those written by either a "president or first lady of the United States."
Rodham closed her thesis by emphasizing that she reserved a place for Alinsky in the pantheon of social action seated next to Martin Luther King, the poet-humanist Walt Whitman, and Eugene Debs, the labor leader now best remembered as the five-time Socialist Party candidate for president.
I agreed with some of Alinsky's ideas, she explained in Living History, her 2003 biography, particularly the value of empowering people to help themselves. But we had a fundamental disagreement. He believed you could change the system only from the outside. I didn't.

Let this be a lesson to conservatives. Get every Dems thesis and other normally public records BEFORE they’re famous enough to start worrying about it.
We knew she’s a marxist revolutionary.
What is this huge deal with Walt Whitman? Homo, sure, but also a commie?
When Bubba wanted to wow Monica before their big mess he gave her, “Leaves of Grass”, by Whitman.
For her grad speech Hillary basically cussed out the (completely shocked and totally innocent) audience, BTW...
We knew, yes, but it’s nice to have it in their own words. If it doesn’t have some light-on-cockroach properties, they wouldn’t be scared of it. Politics is the one thing they’re good at.
They should have just had a large bonfire. Unlikely that undergraduate thesies from the sixties are digitized.
No surprise: they lied and used connections.
I could swear I read her thesis on the internet years ago.
I wish the MSM would dig into Hillary’s and Obama’s ties to Saul Alinsky and the model of Alinskyite agitation and fighting. I have only heard about Alinsky’s influence on them from conservative commentators and sites like this one.
Me too. As I've posted elsewhere she and Obama are ideologically identical except she's far more ruthless.
A Hillary Haiku:
fall to the ground like feces
They both really stink.
She is a congenital liar.
you forgot fat, cankle, shrub scout.

Saul Alinsky friendly with Al Capone and the Chicago Mafia, whose tactics he studied and emulated.. then began organizing for the Congress of Industrial Organizations, a Communist-controlled labor union.
It was during Alinskys involvement in organizing the Chicago Seven riots that Hillary Rodham became actively involved with Alinsky. Rodham first became aware of Alinsky in April 1962 at the age of 14. At that time, her Park Ridge, Illinois youth minister Don Jones had introduced her to a version of Methodism which drew parallels ..
In a 1993 interview with the Washington Post, Rodham summed up her thesis by saying, I basically argued that Alinsky was right.
