ALINSKY AND OBAMA-RULES FOR RADICALS PART 1

3/7/13
In watch Obama over the past 4+ years, the moves he’s made. His believes, his world “American is the problem” tours, his executive orders, his treatment of the American people and in particular the constitution. His favoring the Muslim brotherhood over Israel. And of special note is his anti-capitalism, class warfare, redistribution, entitlements all reminded me of a book I’ve read entitled “RULES FOR RADICALS” by the head radical SAUL ALINSKY.

I have taken the time to summarize this book into “bullet points” which I would like to share with you and see if you come to the same conclusion, that our President just might be from this model. Please read it as I will be posting them by positions Alinsky describes in his book.

PART 1—INTRODUCTION OF ALINSKY AND THE PURPOSE:

ABOUT ALINSKY—BORN IN CHICAGO 1909, UNIV OF CHICAGO, FOUNDED THE ALINSKY IDEOLOGY AND ALINSKY CONCEPTS OF MASS ORGANIZATION FOR POWER. HIS WORK IN ORGANIZING THE POOR TO FIGHT FOR THEIR RIGHTS AS CITIZENS HAS BEEN INTERNATIONALLY RECOGNIZED. IN THE 1930’S HE ORGAINZED THE BACK OF THE YARDS, INDUSTRIAL AREAS FOUNDATION. HE HAS HELPED TO ORGANIZE COMMUNITIES NOT ONLY IN CHICAGO BUT ALSO THROUGHOUT THE COUNTRY. TODAY HIS ORGAINIZING ATTENTION HAS TURNED TO THE MIDDLE CLASS AND HE AND HIS ASSOCIATES HAVE A TRAINING INSTITUTE FOR ORGANIZERS. HE DIED IN 1972

This is by one of Obama mentors, Saul Alinsky and gives you a background on the thinking and just what Obama is trained to do and why he is doing what he does.

“The first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and id it so effectively that he a least won his own kingdom—LUCIFER”.

The revolutionary force today has two targets, moral as well as material. Today’s generation has rejected their materialistic backgrounds, the goal of a well-paid job, suburban home, auto, country club, first class travel, security and everything that meant success to their parents. What this generation wants is what all generations have always wanted—a meaning, a sense of what the world and life are—a chance to strive for some sort of order.

My thing if I want to organize is solid communication with the people in the community. Throughout history silence has been regarded as assent in this case assent to the system. Any revolutionary change must be preceded by a passive, affirmative, non-challenging attitude toward change amount eh mass of our people. They must feel so frustrated, so defeated, so lost, so futureless in the prevailing system that they are willing to let go of the past and change the future. This acceptance is the reformation essential to any revolution. To build a powerful organization takes time.

Lenin was a pragmatist; he said that the Bolsheviks stood for getting power through the ballot, spouting quotes from Mao, Castro, and Che Guevara. I can attack my government try to organize to change it, that’s more than I can do in Moscow, Peking or Havana. The revolution must be preceded by reformation. To assume that a political revolution can survive without the supporting base of a popular reformation is to ask for the impossible in politics. And what you do is agitate, create, disenchantment and disconnect with the current values to produce if not a passion for change at least a passive affirmative, non-challenging climate. Humanitarians on the grounds of a paternal rejection and childhood trauma excused Hitler for his actions.

THE PURPOSE:
Rules for Radicals is written for the Have-nots on how to take it away. How to create mass organizations to seize power and give it to the people to realize the democratic dream of equality, justice, peace, cooperation, equal and full opportunities for education, full and useful employment, health and the creation of those circumstances in which man can have the change to live by values that give meaning to life. (SOUND FAMILIAR)
Revolution is the only force, which has no image, but instead casts a dark, ominous shadow on things to come. The Have-nots are seeking revolutionary writings, and tactics, maneuvers, strategy and principles of action in the making of revolutions. Since in this literature all ideas are imbedded in the language of communism, revolution appears synonymous with communism. The only book on revolution were published by the communists. The revolution by the Have-Nots has a way of inducing a moral revelation among the Haves. It also induces a paranoid fear, as we have permitted the communists to assume by default the revolutionary halo of justice for the Have-Nots. Revolution has become synonymous with communism while capitalism is synonymous with status quo! I will argue that the failure to use power for more equitable distribution of the means of life for all people signals the end of the revolution and the start of the counterrevolution.
