Dear President Obama: You’re No Saul Alinsky… “Rules for Radicals, popular lore aside, is not dedicated to Lucifer, but to “Irene” — Saul’s wife and soulmate. Alinsky considered the highest good to be human dignity. Rules for Radicals, p. 122:”

Rule #12: “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.”
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:……
RUSH: Hey, by the way, folks, if you’ll permit me just one more observation about this woman, Tracie McMillan, her book on food justice. Are we really supposed to believe that only Walmart is selling below quality produce? Do you think Whole Foods might be doing this? Do you think Costcomight be? Do you think any of these chains? Why Walmart? Why does this political science major writing a book about food justice focus on Walmart and produce at Walmart?
Are we really supposed to believe that other grocery stores don’t do what that woman’s accusing Walmart of doing? They all trim their products. They all crisp it. They all fresh it up. They all do what she accused Walmart of doing. Saul Alinsky, Rules for Radicals: pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, polarize it. That’s Barack Obama. That’s who he is. He’s an acolyte of Saul Alinsky, and that’s right from Rules for Radicals, which, by the way, was dedicated to Satan as the first radical. Saul Alinsky dedicated the book Rules for Radicals to Lucifer as the first real radical.
RUSH: Albuquerque, New Mexico. Sandra, I’m glad you waited. I really am. Thank you for holding on and welcome to the program.
