  • Revolutionary Ancestors: Sidney & Alinsky Part II

    Subtitle: Alinsky Lives. Don’t look for fundamental principles in Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals. You won’t find them. In her 1969 college thesis, Hillary admitted frustration in trying to make sense of his inconsistencies. So, as the title implies, Alinsky doesn’t expound on philosophical nostrums, but rather delivers tactics with which to tear down institutions. The danger of adherence to principles of any sort is that they typically harden into the straightjacket of dogma, and dogma is counter-productive to change. Dogmatic ideology locks its adherents into an unchanging course of thought in a rapidly changing world. Ideology stifles free thought and...

    The Left is getting massively out-Alinskyed, and the hilarious thing is that this band of withered hippies, unemployable millennial safe-space cases, and unlovable + unshaven libfeminists don’t even know it. Oh, their masters sure know it. Soros is bitterly having to ramp up his infusions of blood money to keep his community-organized “grassroots” movements afloat. The less dumb ones among the lying dinosaur media are panicking as their influence fades, and Chuck Schumer is enduring such a non-stop parade of serial humiliations that if the Senate were a penitentiary, he’d be McConnell’s prison Mitch.

    Trump has turned the enemy’s tactics against itself Can we say anything more about Donald Trump and his election campaign that has not already been said? Let’s look again at Saul Alinsky’s book RULES FOR RADICALS. Could it be that Trump used some of Alinsky’s ideas to win the election? RULES FOR RADICALS was first published in 1971. That’s almost 50 years ago.

    It’s no wonder they hate him…h/t Ed DriscollHe’s a very quick learner. (Although he may have gotten the idea from MOTUS’s banner)I’ve got a busy day so your job, should you accept it, is to illustrate how The Donald has used every one of Alinsky’s Rules thus far. Ed Driscoll gets you started: Rule #4: Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules. In late August, a Trump video similarly pushed back against his own charges by noting that “Hillary Clinton needs to address the racist undertones of her 2008 campaign.” Posted from: Michelle Obama’s Mirror

    Free public college, Cancellation of all student debt, A $15 minimum wage Who, you ask, is Saul Alinsky? He was a self-proclaimed radical who supported guerilla tactics and civil disobedience to get what he wanted. In 1971 he wrote about his book “Rules for Radicals, “The Prince was written by Machiavelli for the Haves on how to hold power,” “Rules for Radicals is written for the Have-Nots on how to take it away.” Another notable quote from Alinsky,

    That photo is me about ten years ago, standing in the ruins of a land where people rejected the rule of law in favor of the rule of force. I think a lot about my year-long deployment to Kosovo these days. I think a lot about people today who, for short term political points, cavalierly disregard the rules, laws and norms that made America what it is. I think a lot about how liberals, especially those who boo God, should pray to Him that those rules, laws and norms are restored. I am most certainly not smiling – I am...

    WASHINGTON – There’s no love lost between the Clintons and the Obamas. But they have much in common. As previously mentioned in this series, Hillary Rodham Clinton is a disciple of Saul Alinsky, the ruthless, guileful, Marxist genius who explained how hard work, deceit and trickery can be used to impose unpopular restrictions on liberty, faith, family and free enterprise – empowering government as the ultimate authority over people. Likewise, so is Barack Hussein Obama. It’s no bulletin to anyone at this point, but, under the circumstances, it’s worth noting again that Alinksy dedicated his famous “Rules for Radicals” to...

(These are two things of which there is a plentiful supply. Government and corporations always have a difficult time appealing to people, and usually do so almost exclusively with...

    “We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.” - Barack Obama, election eve, 2008 Barack Obama is an enigma. He won the 2008 presidential election claiming to be a moderate and wanting to bring Americans together and govern from the center. But since he took office, his actions have been far from moderate. He has apologized to foreign dictators abroad for sins he alleges his own country committed and appointed a self-described communist (Van Jones) and an admirer of Mao Zedong to top White House posts. He has used the economic crisis to take over...

    Human Events ^ | June 9. 2014 | John Hayward
    Back in the Sixties, Marxists Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven came up with a great strategy for overloading and collapsing democratic welfare states, paving the way for socialist tyranny. Basically, the idea was to hit the system with a tidal wave of demands it couldn’t refuse, and couldn’t possibly fulfill. The Left would then insist that the moral argument for the system remained intact, so the only way to meet those impossible demands was to scrap every vestige of Constitutional restraint and republican self-government, instituting a totalitarian system that in theory would forcibly restructure society to promote “fairness” and...

    Amazon ^ | Star Parker
    Uncle Sam’s Plantation is an incisive look at how government manipulates, controls, and ultimately devastates the lives of the poor—and what Americans must do to stop it. Once a hustler and welfare addict who was chewed up and spit out by the ruthless welfare system, Star Parker sheds much needed light on the bungled bureaucratic attempts to end poverty and reveals the insidious deceptions perpetrated by self-serving politicians. “Star Parker rocks the world. She is an iconoclast that must be listened to and reckoned with.” ―Sean Hannity “Star Parker’s important new book helps advance the understanding—critical for all Americans—that prosperity...

    Democrats charged in a Friday memo that Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) is leading the Republican Party, and that his "brand of conservatism" will hurt Republicans running for office in Iowa in 2014. The memo, issued by the Democratic National Committee and the campaign committees for both chambers and the party's governors, came as Cruz is slated to headline a Friday night fundraising dinner in Des Moines, Iowa. "Make no mistake: Ted Cruz is leading the Republican Party. Candidates want to be him. Incumbents are afraid of him. The Republican Party base is energized by him," the memo reads. It's the...

    The big teaching moment for Republicans, conservatives and libertarians — that time you can finally whisper new ideas quietly in the ears of your liberal and progressive friends and relations — is here. And it’s not just because Obamacare is an unbelievable fiasco that even has them stuttering on CBS and ABC. Everything is going haywire for the president. Absolutely everything. Obama is even having to field calls from German chancellor Angela Merkel, irate that we were tapping her mobile phone. Now she and the first lady of Brazil are going to the UN over this, humiliating our country, which...

    There may be no official rule book for being a liberal, but that doesn't mean there aren't rules. There are actually quite a few rules liberals go by and the more politically active liberals become, the more rigidly they tend to stick to their own code of behavior. These rules, most of which are unspoken, are passed along culturally on the Left and viciously enforced. Ironically, many liberals could not explain these rules to you and don't even consciously know they're following them. So, by reading this article, not only will you gain a better understanding of liberals, you'll know...

    When America was a racist country, Democrats were primarily the ones engaged in racism. However, now that racism has been largely relegated to the fringes of American society (the KKK, the New Black Panthers, the Nation of Islam, La Raza, MEChA, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, American Nazi Party, etc.), the Democrats are constantly wagging their fingers about it. Of course naturally, given the racist history of the Democrat Party, liberals have managed to rig the rules in order to benefit themselves and hurt their political opponents. That's a pretty neat albeit despicable trick that they've managed to pull off. 1)...
