VANITY: Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals” vs. C.S. Lewis’s “The Screwtape Letters”

I just finished reading Rules for Radicals by Saul D. Alinsky earlier this week, and it was one of the most unpleasant books I have ever read. I also think it was one of the most immoral books as well.

I had two people (my brother and a friend) who suggested that I read C.S. Lewis’s The Screwtape Letters, so that has been on my list for a little while now.

As it stands, it was the next book I picked up after Rules for Radicals. I am stunned by the happenstance that led me to read The Screwtape Letters directly after Alinsky’s book.

Most people know by now that Alinsky had a dedication to Lucifer on the earlier copies of his book Rules for Radicals that went as such:

“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

Who’s the narcissist? [Begins with an "O"]

-“Barack Obama appears to be a narcissist,” wrote Shmuel (Sam) Vaknin, who’s written two books on narcissism, in July of 2008. “Narcissistic leaders are nefarious and their effects pernicious. They are subtle, refined, socially adept, manipulative, possessed of thespian skills and convincing. [They] lack empathy and are ruthless and relentless.”

-“Narcissism is a defense mechanism whose role is to deflect hurt and trauma from the victim’s ‘True Self’ into a ‘False Self’ which is omnipotent, invulnerable and omniscient,” Dr. Vaknin wrote.

Among the narcissistic traits Dr. Vaknin observed in Mr. Obama are that he:

• subtly misrepresents facts and expediently and opportunistically shifts positions;

• ignores data that conflict with his fantasy world;

• feels that he is above the law;

• craves to be the exclusive center of attention, and

• has a messianic-cosmic vision of himself.

There is a scene early on in the movie Patton, where the feisty general watches the forces under his command do battle with those led by the legendary German Panzer leader, Erwin Rommel.  To prepare for this particular skirmish, “Old Blood and Guts” studied the writings of his adversary, prompting the memorable line uttered in a gravely voice by actor George C. Scott: “Rommel, you magnificent bastard, I read your book!”

Later, the general found out that Rommel himself had not actually been present for the confrontation, but he is comforted by an aid: “If you defeat Rommel’s plan, then you defeat Rommel.”

For a long time people have been asking why Americans are not up in arms, screaming and shouting about their fast disappearing liberties along with the continuous passage of legislation that they vehemently oppose, from the banker bailout, to the cap and trade bill, to Obamacare. Well now they are screaming and shouting – and if the momentum continues to build, this rebellion could the spark to ignite the second American revolution.

PROGRESSIVES THINK THE PROTESTS ARE MANUFACTURED ~ By Jon Christian Ryter

Wall Street Journal writer John Fund wrote an www.opinionjournal.com piece the other day noting that the “…White House is clearly worried about the opponents of its health care plan who are showing up at town-hall meetings with members of Congress. It took an extraordinary step of issuing a three-minute video rebuttal to a Drudge Report item that featured a 2007 clip of Barack Obama supporting the ‘elimination’ of private health insurance over time after a government plan is introduced. Later in the day, White House press secretary Robert Gibbs called the health care protesters a form of ‘manufactured’ anger. Democratic National Committee spokesman Brad Woodhouse went further and called them ‘angry mobs of rabid rightwing extremists.'”

Let’s face it. This is one time the media spinmeisters can’t win the public relations debate. Why? Because those agitated rightwing extremists in “…limes and pinks and Brooks Brothers suits” who showed up at the health care town halls wearing Dockers and short sleeve sport shirts; or dresses, shorts and tank tops and flip-flops represent about 80% of the People of the United States. The protesters, in this instance, were not the minority voices of the voting public, they were the voting public. (And, the White House can’t steal enough ACORN votes next year to overrule the will of the People who clearly intend to fire a bunch of Congressmen and Senators.) Let’s hope they remember they are voting out the idiots who voted for the stimulus bills, and the idiots who nationalized the auto industry, and the idiots who voted for a socialist healthcare bill. Sadly, the arrogant fools on Capitol Hill who see themselves as demigods haven’t yet disambiguated the message from the Tea Parites or the message from the healthcare town halls. Maybe it will translate better when the voters say, “You’re fired!” Isn’t that nice…everyone gets to play Donald Trump next November.

THE STORM UNLEASHED ON AMERICA

On August 7, 2009, President Barack Hussein Obama said that he expected the people who caused the financial and health care mess to be quiet, stand out of the way, and let it be fixed. Well, Mr. President, if you do not want the people who created this mess standing in the way of fixing it, then you, Mr. Obama…and Pelosi, Reid, Dodd, Frank, et all had best step out of the way yourselves because you not only helped engineer the problems that ensured the fiasco…you are now intent on making it immeasurably worse in your drive towards abject marxism.

Abject evil is amongst us. It has been festering for decades and is now rapidly advancing. The American people are awakening to it as a result of the health care plan, the stimulus, the bail-outs, and the coming Cap & Trade and are angry…and tired of being the patsy for all of these marxistic, socailistic, destructive, initiative robbing, liberty destroying, un-American, and unconstituional actions of the DNC, Dems, left, MSM, and RINOs.

Something is going to give, and so help me God, it will not be the liberty, constitution, and way of life my forefathers sacrificed their life’s blood for.
