About “Rules for Radicals” Alinsky wrote, “Lest we forget at least an over-the-shoulder acknowledgment 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."
Hillary Clinton had a personal relationship with Saul Alinsky. Alinsky and his tactics were the topic of Clinton’s senior theses at Wellesley College. Alinsky offered her full-time work after her graduation. The theses was put under lock and key by Wellesley College in 1993, apparently to protect both her and her husband.
Obama, after attending Columbia University, worked as an organizer on the South Side of Chicago for the Developing Communities Project, an Alinsky organization. It was also while Obama was in Chicago that Obama became acquainted with Bill Ayers. Ayers held Obama’s first political fund raiser in his home. Obama also became acquainted with another influential person in his life at this time, the Reverend Wright, a noted hater of the United States, the Constitution, and freedom.
From “Rules for Radicals”:
“The organizers job is to inseminate an invitation for himself, to agitate, introduce ideas, get people with pregnant with hope and a desire for change and to identify you as the person most qualified for this purpose.” This is where the phrase “Hope and Change” apparently originated for Obama’s first campaign.
“Ethical standards must be elastic to stretch with the times.” Marx said all morality must be eliminated. The Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) and the media have abandoned all ethics and morality.
“To me ethics is doing what is right for the most.” The Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) and the media believe their definition of right is correct although it contradicts the long-standing definition of right.
“Rule of ethics of means and ends is that you do what you can with what you have and clothe it with moral garments.”
“Manipulation is the name of the game just as a teacher manipulates.”
“In a fight, almost anything goes. It almost reaches the point where you stop to apologize if a chance blow lands above the belt.”
From "Reveille for Radicals":
“It is a tactic to burn one’s bridges because you’re never going back anyway.”
“Morality is largely a rationalization of the point you happen to occupy in the power pattern at a given time.” In other words, “morality” is whatever works. Remember Harry Reid telling us that he had it from good sources that Romney had not paid taxes for the last 10 years. Three years later when Romney had lost and Reid was proven to have lied, Reid said that it was just fine for him to tell that lie because Romney had lost the election and his lie contributed to Obama's win.
“Throughout Western civilization, radicals tied their destiny to the organized labor movement. The labor movement has been as much of an ideological foundation to all left-wing thinkers as the Ten Commandments and the Golden Rule are to devout religionists.” Labor unions are the backbone of the Marxist movement as are strong family units the backbone of a free society.
Morality, ethics, truth, and a sense of fair play have no meaning to the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) and the media, just as they have no meaning to nations like North Korea and Iran. In the world of Marx, Alinsky, the far left, the current Marxist/Progressives (Democrats), and the media; the ends really do justify the means. For these groups, it is honorable to lie, demean, exaggerate, and produce proclaimed facts that came from anonymous sources and thin air, if it advances the movement toward their desired fair and just Marxist totalitarian society.
For the most part, those on the right do not understand this concept. It is the very nature of Freedom Loving individuals to respect truth and to argue policy without demeaning. Marxist/Progressive Schumer has no problem creating facts while speaking on the floor of the Senate, while an honorable individual like Ted Cruz is incapable of participating in those dishonorable tactics. This puts Freedom Loving Americans at a distinct disadvantage, especially when the media agrees with the ideology and the Alinsky tactics practiced by Marxist/Progressives (Democrats). These immoral practices are not solely used by the Democrats; Republicans in the mold of John McCain use them as adeptly as do the Democrats.
We Freedom Loving Americans must understand the influence Marx and Alinsky have on those in the United States, such as the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats), the media, and the likes of John McCain. We should not use these same tactics that have been perfected by the likes of Obama and Hillary, but be aware of them so we can more effectively minimize their affect. Practicing evil for the purpose of preserving ethics and morality does not justify the practice of that evil. That would be saying that the ends do justify the means.
