More specifically from Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals”.
I don’t recall the precise wording, but it is to find a flaw in someone and bring it out to discredit them. This is especially easy to do with conservatives as we actually DO care if someone enhaled or not. (Or messy divorces, or accepted a gift, etc.).
A very perceptive comment.
I’ve never read ‘rules for radicals’ sorry. While I agree with most of the assertions Keyes makes here, I would never trust the guy with an elective office.
