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.

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:……

Gunny G: Laugh At The Enemy, They Cannot Handle It !!!!!

December 2, 2012 Leave a comment

It should be remembered that you can threaten the enemy and get away with it.

You can insult and annoy him, but the one thing that is unforgivable and that is certain to get him to react is to laugh at him.

A Reminder That the Declaration Has Been Upgraded (Vanity)

July 4, 2012 13 comments

Declaration of Dependence

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for One Man to create political bands which shall bind a people unto himself, and to assume among the powers of the Earth, the separate and more equal station to which the Laws of Alinsky and of Alinsky’s god Lucifer entitles him, a decent self-respect and care for the opinions of posterity requires that he should declare the methods which impel him to the Throne.

I hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, but that I am more Equal than others; that they are endowed by their government with certain temporary favors, that among these are Tolerance, Diversity, and the pursuit of Enlightenment.

12 Ways To Use Saul Alinsky’s Rules For Radicals Against Liberals

April 14, 2012 3 comments

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.

Camp Alinsky Crowd Goes … Full Alinsky

October 18, 2011 Leave a comment

From our friend Michael Walsh at the National Review’s The Corner. He’s got a historical piece referencing the “progressive” action in Rochester, N.Y. during the mid-to-late 1960s and how they relate to current protests.

Read the full post, but a taste…

Alinsky rode into town on a one-trick pony that the Left has since turned into its warhorse: Agitate one side’s grievances, and appeal to another side’s decency and gullibility in order to provoke the establishment, whose reaction will unite the other two. Then the community organizer charges in on his nag-turned-steed and proceeds to set the rot in motion under the banner of “progress.”

Even though the activists want you to think the riots were in response to oppression by the man – in Rochester’s case Kodak not hiring enough minorities – they were really kicked off when police responded to a dance chaperone calling police to help remove an unruly and drunk party-goer.

The disturbance began at a Friday evening street dance sponsored by the Northeast Mothers Improvement Association. One of the chaperones called police to complain about an intoxicated young man and when police attempted to arrest him, the crowd interfered. The officers called for backup and when a K-9 unit arrived on the scene, the crowd became enraged.

Alinsky showed up and picked Kodak as a primary target since they were the largest employer in town.

Just an interesting historical perspective for you this morning.

Gunny G: Maybe We Need To Find Ourselves Our Own Alinsky Devil !!!!!!

Everyone pulling in different directions, and the slavemasters know this full well and use it to their advantage to enslave us further.

Alinsky, on the other hand, teaches its devils to all pull together despite their many different specific complaints/goals to the overall advantage.

Maybe patriots?/conservatives?etc? just need to find ourselves an alinsky devil of our own and listen to him/her/it!!!!!

Just Plain Dick

Alinsky Rule 13: On Tour in Wisconsin

March 15, 2011 Leave a comment

Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it. In conflict tactics there are certain rules that [should be regarded] as universalities.

One is that the opposition must be singled out as the target and ‘frozen.’…The show is still on in Wisconsin.

While the union bosses and other leftist groups stopped paying people to protest at the State Capitol Building, they are switching emphasis to smaller groups or individuals.

Yesterday, we covered that the unions are “gooning up” businesses, threatening to boycott any business that does not condemn the governor. Now, we see that they are going to single out the governor himself.

Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals”

Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals”
RED STATE ^ | January 2, 2011 | David Denholm

Posted on Sunday, January 02, 2011 5:01:29 PM by Moseley

A great deal has been written about Saul Alinsky’s book “Rules for Radicals.” Much of it tends to ignore the rules and focus on other things, like whether Alinsky was a communist. I think that knowing and understanding the rules is very helpful to those of us who participate in the fight for freedom.

I came by my knowledge of Brother Saul and the “Rules” over a lifetime of work fighting labor unions, particularly public sector labor unions. Alinsky’s teachings have a tremendous impact on the tactics of public sector unions, like the National Education Association. Over the years I have spoken about Alinsky and the “Rules” in many contexts from conventions of public officials to training sessions of professional educator group leaders. A couple small samples of my writing can be found in “A Few Things All Educators Should Know About the National Education Association, But the NEA Won’t Tell Them” or “Labor Unrest and Public Policy — Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals”

Interest in Alinsky and the “Rules” seems to come up about once every decade. In the most modern application it is the emergence of the Tea Party as a force to be contended with. There is no doubt that the Tea Party and its leaders have been “Alinsky’d” by radical liberals with the sympathetic assistance of the mainstream media.

I figured that as long as the country is focused on book burning, I would throw in my choice for bon fire fuel. Rules for Radicals is the book Zero considers holy and in the long run may be the one book that was the cause of more damage done to our Country, than the Koran ever could be.

ALINSKY: …. I moved over to the table next to the cashier, exchanged a few words with her and then finished my coffee and got up to pay. “Gee, I’m sorry,” I said, “I seem to have lost my check.” She’d seen that all I had was a cup of coffee, so she just said, “That’s OK, that’ll be a nickel.” So I paid and left with my original nickel check still in my pocket and walked a few blocks to the next cafeteria in the same chain and ordered a big meal for a buck forty-five — and, believe me, in those days, for a buck forty-five I could have practically bought the fuckin’ joint. I ate in a corner far away from the cashier, then switched checks and paid my nickel bill from the other place and left. So my eating troubles were taken care of.

But then I began to see other kids around the campus in the same fix, so I put up a big sign on the bulletin board and invited anybody who was hungry to a meeting. Some of them thought it was all a gag, but I stood on the lectern and explained my system in detail, with the help of a big map of Chicago with all the local branches of the cafeteria marked on it. Social ecology! I split my recruits up into squads according to territory; one team would work the South Side for lunch, another the North Side for dinner, and so on. We got the system down to a science, and for six months all of us were eating free. Then the bastards brought in those serial machines at the door where you pull out a ticket that’s only good for that particular cafeteria. That was a low blow. We were the first victims of automation….
