ALINSKY’S RULES… | BUNKERVILLE | God, Guns and Guts Comrades!

May 18, 2014 1 comment

Known as the “father of modern American radicalism,” Saul D. Alinsky (1909-1972) developed strategies and tactics that take the enormous, unfocused emotional energy of grassroots groups and transform it into effective anti-government and anti-corporate activism. Activist organizations teach his ideas widely taught today as a set of model behaviors, and they use these principles to create an emotional commitment to victory – no matter what.

Saul David Alinsky (January 30, 1909 – June 12, 1972)

 

 

 

From Playboy interview:

 

ALINSKY: … if there is an afterlife, and I have anything to say about it, I will unreservedly choose to go to hell. PLAYBOY:

 

Why? ALINSKY: Hell would be heaven for me. All my life I’ve been with the have-nots. Over here, if you’re a have-not, you’re short of dough.

If you’re a have-not in hell, you’re short of virtue. Once I get into hell, I’ll start organizing the have-nots over there. PLAYBOY: Why them? ALINSKY: They’re my kind of people.

ALINSKY’S RULE 12: Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it. Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions. This is cruel, but very effective. Direct, personalized criticism and ridicule works……….

The Best Quotes From Saul Alinsky’s “Rules For Radicals.” | Right Wing News

December 2, 2012 Leave a comment

Ironically, one of the hottest new books for conservatives is far left-winger Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals, which was written way back in 1971.
