I'm getting curious (again) about Hillary's thesis....Has anyone heard any more about it? Or whether she does discuss Alinsky's methods in it?
Very well said...I might also add that Democrats' basic positions are simply not compatible with freedom as well, much less the Constitution. I found it humorous, yet scary that Alinskys book was dedicated to Lucifer...kinda gives one perspective as to what the Democrats are really shooting for.
In a nutshell is where a surprisingly high number of them belong.
I was under the impression that her thesis has "disappeared" ???
It's only in jest ferchrissake...
Back when I was active with the DC Chapter, I read Alinsky's Rules for Radicals. A quick glance at the table of contents and it's not too hard to see that it's the playbook of the Democrats. With chapter titles like "Of Means and Ends", "A Word About Words", and "Tactics", I'm sure you get my meaning. The chapter "Of Means and Ends" starts with this paragraph:
THAT PERENNIAL QUESTION, "Does the end justify the means?" is meaningless as it stands; the real and only question regarding the ethics of means and ends is, and always has been, "Does this particular end justify this particular means?"
Scary stuff, huh? I read it to get a better understanding of the other side. Joe (MCM)
Someone, somewhere must know what it says. (Would a certain lawyer who "committed suicide" have known its contents?)
It's good to understand where the liberals are coming from.
As Jesus said in Matthew 10--
Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.
Browsing the excerpts I found this one to be quite disturbing:
Lest we forget at least the over-the-shoulder acknowledgement 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
