Saul David Alinsky (January 30, 1909 – June 12, 1972) was an American community organizer, and writer. He is generally considered to be the founder of modern community organizing. He is often noted for his book Rules for Radicals.
What communities did he influence and how are they fairing today?
Chicago: Highest crime rates and murder rates in the U.S. This was his primary forey.
Detroit: Very high crime rates, massive shutdowns and exodus by businesses no longer able to afford union pay that was 4x higher than people deserved.
Southern California barrios: We all know how those turned out.
Oakland, California: Ditto.
He also arranged “fart-ins” and “piss-ins.” Not exactly a classy individual. In fact, much of the gutter tactics we’ve seen during the LA riots, the Ferguson riots, and the Baltimore riots can be traced directly back to Alinsky’s influence.
Beware in bashing him outright, though, for he wrote the following in his book, Rules for Radicals: “The job of the organizer is to
maneuver and bait the establishment so that it will publicly attack him as a ‘dangerous enemy.'” According to Alinsky, “the hysterical instant reaction of the establishment [will] not only validate [the organizer’s] credentials of competency but also ensure automatic popular invitation.”
Although Alinsky shunned political parties, the Democrat Party has wholly embraced his lying, cheating, stealing, and wholly disruptive tactics.
What does that tell you about how low the Democrat Party is willing to go? We’ve certainly seen it in their behavior.
What does that tell you about how low Hillary Clinton is willing to go? We’ve certainly seen it in her behavior.
For example, Democrats love to brag about how many copies of Alinsky’s book, Rules for Radicals, they’ve given to Tea Party leaders. What they don’t mention is how many of those copies have been tossed on account of its heinous methods.
Given the extremes to which the Democrat Party has gone to depart from the U.S. Constitution, and the significant degree to which the Republican Party has followed, here’s a radical idea for modern times: Stick with the U.S. Constitution.
