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.

Some might take issue with the title relative to Obama, because with respect to his execution of Alinsky‘s vision he has been masterful at times, but there’s that, and then there’s not being smart enough to figure out how wrong liberalism/socialism/communism is.

Hoo-wee! There’s no doubt the Mideast Charm Offensive was a huge success. When Big Guy brings his A-game, that old Hopey-Changey magic always works like a charm.
For example, whenever Big Guy channels the patron saint of community organizers, Saul “Rules for Radicals” Alinsky, it’s pure magic.
One of Alinsky’s major themes was working with the world as it “is” to turn it into the world as “it should be.”
In his defining work, “Rules for Radicals,” which he dedicated to “the first rebel,” Lucifer, Alinsky used those words to lay out his main agenda. He asserted radical change must be brought about by working within a system instead of attacking it from the outside.
Obama’s entire life and career has been a daisy chain of lies and schemes designed to take over America and redirect her away from God, achievement and freedom. Obama’s handlers and the international and Muslim billions behind him (that the media has ignored from the beginning) have been grooming Obama for the take over of America since he was a little boy.
The overall agenda has always been to cut the throat and Juggler vain of America, while sucking her spirit and real energy dry. Obama has taught from and worshiped at the ground of Saul Alinsky, Cloward and Piven. These were the evil communist and social disruptors that Obama and Hillary worship to this day.
Obama has obeyed Alinsky, Cloward and Piven perfectly.
There is too much change to focus on, too many distractions, and contrived crises everywhere – to manipulate gun, health and economic control. Obama has beautifully accomplished his evil goals hurling many ‘assault weapons’ on the people and Constitution.
A little over half our country has been seduced and sautéed in his anti American onions twice now.
After reading the book, my personal opinion is that Alinsky was a brilliant yet cynical, habitually dishonest, utterly amoral human being with a deep understanding of large swathes of human nature. Was he a good guy?
No, not at all. But, is there a lot conservatives can learn from his tactics? Absolutely. Some of it we can apply and some of it we can see how the Left has applied it against us.
With that in mind, here are the quotes that jumped out at me in Alinsky’s tome:……
Feder’s Rules For Conservatives (Part I)… (“Understand that the left intends to destroy you. Your opponent isn’t a nice guy or a misguided idealist. He’s a dogmatist cut from the same cloth as Robespierre and Lenin — a storm trooper waiting to be fitted with jack boots and issued a truncheon.”)
Some on the right are now recommending Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals” as a handbook for us. The recommendation usually begins with, “I know Alinsky was thoroughly evil… but there’s a lot we can learn from him.”
Obama is reelected with 9 million fewer votes than in 2008, against a pathetically weak opponent (whose most memorable line from the debates was “I agree with the president on that”), and suddenly the Marxist Machiavelli is the political equivalent of Sun Tzu. Here’s a guide for conservative victories based on conservative values:
Understand that the left intends to destroy you. Your opponent isn’t a nice guy or a misguided idealist. He’s a dogmatist cut from the same cloth as Robespierre and Lenin — a storm trooper waiting to be fitted with jack boots and issued a truncheon. Look at the way the left runs academia, where it’s achieved near total dominance: brainwashing, rigid censorship and draconian punishment for thought crimes.
This is what it’s planning for the rest of America.
“They fear that the development and building of People’s (community) Organizations is the building of a vast power group which may fall prey to a fascistic demagogue who will seize leadership and control and turn an organization into a Frankenstein’s monster against democracy.” – Saul Alinsky responding to his critics, Reveille for Radicals; p. 199

A local activist makes a stand against OFA thuggery.
…Schlafly has the entire paper trail showing the Archdiocese of Chicago paying for Obama to attend a seminar in California on Alinsky tactics and theory. Praise God, she even has the check stub with “THE CATHOLIC BISHOP OF CHICAGO” emblazoned across the top of the check. The images of that are at the link above.
If you haven’t watched my video series below on the Vendee Genocide, please do.
Saul Alinsky was a brilliant man. Evil, but brilliant. Unfortunately, whether we like it or not, everyone on the Left from the President on down is playing by his rules in the political arena. Not all liberals have read his book or know his name, but his tactics have become universal.
Sadly for conservatives, when two evenly matched forces go head-to-head outside of a fairy tale, the side that tries to play nice usually ends up with its head in a box. So, don’t lie or become an evil person like Alinsky, but learn from what he wrote and give the Left a taste of its own medicine.
“The progressive Alinsky is infamous and actually toxic on the right,” Riehl wrote. “George Romney’s endorsement of him, coupled with his acknowledged strong influence on son Mitt, will do little to assure suspicious conservatives concerned about Mitt Romney’s record as a progressive, including his introduction of Romneycare in Massachusetts.”

Soledad O’Brien would not brand Saul Alinsky as a leftist radical, and neither would she say President Obama was influenced by his writings – but she had no problem tying Alinsky’s controversial beliefs to the Tea Party movement on Monday’s Starting Line.As a community organizer in Chicago, Barack Obama mirrored the tactics Alinsky laid out in his book “Rules for Radicals” – which featured a tribute to the devil Lucifer, “the very first radical.” GOP candidate Newt Gingrich has recently tied Obama’s name with Alinsky, sparking a media debate over the matter.
O’Brien wanted to set the story straight on Monday, and delivered a neutral take on the controversial community organizer. “He spent his life helping minorities in poor neighborhoods exert their political force by organizing them to get to the polls,” she stated.And O’Brien’s soft take echoes the coverage by her network.
The Obamacrats have changed the orientation of the Democrat Party from Jefferson and Jackson to the Chicago leftist establishment. More ominous is they have moved the geographic center of gravity of the Party from America to fin-de-siecle Russia with its decadent mixture of the occult and Bolshevism.
Saul Alinsky, Catholic Bishops, Alinsky-inspired Campaign for Human Development ~ When the Devil comes to Church and Stays ~ Author: Judi McLeod
Although I would rate the pulpit politics, including the most recent one from Development and Peace’s “Help to Cool the Earth” campaign devilish, I never til’ now took my friend’s warning literally.
But In fact, the devil has come to church in the name of one Saul Alinsky.
Thanks to colleague Canada Free Press (CFP) columnist Jim O’Neill, who sent me a post by Bob Lunsford this morning quoting Fr. Val J. Peter, I got the chilling skinny on how much at home Beelzebub is in church.
Writes Fr. Peter: “As Lawrence J. Engel relates in “The Influence of Saul Alinsky on the Campaign for Human Development” (Theological Studies, December 1998), to which this article owes a large debt, the CHD began in 1969 as American cities were burning down: Newark, Washington, Detroit, Los Angeles.
It was the height of the Civil Rights Movement and the anti-Vietnam War protests. Some scholars believed the nation was on the road to anarchy. The patriotism of the young during the Kennedy era was gone, replaced with: “Hey, hey, LBJ, how many kids have you killed today?” (Fr. Val Peter, Oct. 17, 2011).
For four decades the Alinsky-inspired Campaign for Human Development (CHD) escaped close investigation under the fuzzy warm blanket of ‘Social Justice’ that envelops it.
Satan Saul arrived on the altar when the impact of the Second Vatican Council made time ripe for the cunning of Alinsky-style Marxism. Imagine this godless wonder getting to teach unsuspecting Catholics of the day how to follow the call of Vatican 11. The sanctimonious sounding CHD became a powerful branch of community organizing: characteristics of which have been well recorded as strident, threatening, and prone to shakedown. “With your (Catholic) money and my ideas, we can go a long way,” was Alinsky’s clarion call.
This was by no means Saul Alinsky in the abstract. Arguably second only in status to Che Guevara, the world’s ruling Marxist was given $30,000 a year by Cardinal Samuel Stritch for three years to study Chicago’s racially troubled neighborhoods. (Back in those days, no one seemed aware that Chicago’s “racially troubled neighborhoods” was the petri dish result of a deliberate Marxist tactic.)
Did Obama quote Alinsky in Mideast policy address?:
‘There must be no doubt that the United States of America welcomes change that advances self-determination and opportunity,’ Obama stated. ‘Yes, there will be perils that accompany this moment of promise. But after decades of accepting the world as it is in the region, we have a chance to pursue the world as it should be.’
One of Alinsky’s
Re Based On Gramsci’s Neo-Marxist Strategies… ” Hillary, Obama and the Cult of Alinsky: “True revolutionaries do not flaunt their radicalism, Alinsky taught. They cut their hair, put on suits and infiltrate the system from within. Alinsky viewed revolution as a slow, patient process. The trick was to penetrate existing institutions such as churches, unions and political parties…. Many leftists view Hillary as a sell-out because she claims to hold moderate views on some issues. However, Hillary is simply following Alinsky’s counsel to do and say whatever it takes to gain power. “
Alinsky’s tactics were based, not on Stalin’s revolutionary violence, but on the Neo-Marxist strategies of Antonio Gramsci, an Italian Communist. Relying on gradualism, infiltration and the dialectic process rather than a bloody revolution, Gramsci’s transformational Marxism was so subtle that few even noticed the deliberate changes.
