In Alinsky’s famous Book: Rules for Radicals, he lays out his “crafty” little system of amoral strategies to accomplish his intended goal, which is to basically– seize power.
However, in order for Alinsky tactics (which President Obama says were “seared into his brain,” according the book, How Evil Works) to really work, the general public must be made to feel intimidated, upset, frustrated, and hopeless…which is exactly how many of us have been feeling for the past four years, isn’t it?
And now, since President Obama seems to be actually losing the battle on his strict gun-control legislation (at the moment), he just launched Alinksy Rule Number Five, which is:
“Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon. It is almost impossible to counterattack ridicule. Also, it infuriates the opposition, who then react to your advantage.”
So, what’s the purpose of making people “infuriated” so they’ll “react to your advantage”?
Well, according to Alinsky, “The enemy properly goaded and guided in his reaction will be your major strength.”
He’s absolutely right. Because when I heard President Obama mocking legitimate concerns of gun owners yesterday, I could just feel my blood boiling. To be brutally honest, for a very split second, I really wanted to slap my Liberal neighbor right out of her seat. But I know that’s the reaction the Alinsky-ites desire, so I refuse to give it to them.
On his visit to Colorado, the president mocked:
“The opponents of some of these common sense laws have ginned up fears among responsible gun owners that have nothing to do with what’s being proposed, nothing to do with the facts, but feeds into this suspicion about government. You hear some of these quotes: ‘I need a gun to protect myself from the government. ‘We can’t do background checks because the government’s going to come take my guns away.’”
Well, Mr. President, with the bold usurpations you have taken lately, you can’t blame Americans for being a bit concerned…. and you know it.
But, instead of getting angry and overreacting to the president’s mockery of concerned law-abiding citizens (such as myself), I’d rather remind us all of this Alinsky-esque strategy so we don’t fall into the trap.
First of all, let’s all just remember who Obama’s mentor, Saul Alinsky, adored in the first place: Lucifer.
In his book Rules for Radicals, Alinksy honors “the first radical” on the dedication page of the first edition:
“Lest we forget at leas an over-the-shoulder acknowledgement to the very first radical: from all our legends, mythology, and history (and who is to know where mythology leaves off and history begins—which is which), the first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom—Lucifer”
In his book: How Evil Works by David Kupelian, Kupelian brilliantly explains how to understand Saul Alinsky’s strategies: “It seems like Alinsky, just like the “very first radical” who inspired him, knew that if you can make people upset and frightened, you gain powerful and mysterious leverage in implementing your agenda.”
“The name of the game is intimidation. Consider what happens when government constantly upsets citizens by bombarding them with rapid-fire crises and “solutions” that just make the problems worse: Some people become so overwhelmed, they just give in and stop fighting so as to relieve the pressure. Others try to fight back, but become frustrated that their efforts are misdirected and ineffective, and before long, they burn out. A very few, in their rage, might become so unhinged they resort to violence, like Timothy McVeigh, who decided blowing up a government building in Oklahoma City in 1995 was an acceptable way to fight back against a corrupt government. In reality, he succeeded only in murdering 168 of his countrymen, including a day-care center full of toddlers….
Leftist leaders then capitalize handsomely on such “right-wing terrorism” as justification for their attempts to demonize and suppress conservative groups and voices across the board.”
Doesn’t this sound familiar? Remember those dangerous Tea Party members the media painted as “terrorists” and “racists”? Yep, me too. And, that’s even without the Tea Party ever engaging in any violent activity. Imagine if they did?
Yet, the ‘powers that be’ just keep nudging, intimidating, mocking, and frustrating, waiting for someone to ‘snap’ and do something stupid. It’s just not worth it.
We can see how these elitists are trying to rule over us, spending our money into oblivion, taking away our rights— all while using their brilliantly ‘crafted’ Alinsky tactics. All in their quest for power. It’s difficult not to want to react, isn’t it?
So what are we supposed do we do?
We certainly won’t win this war and advance our cause by lowering to the amoral standards of Saul Alinsky (or this administration, for that matter). But, we do have a weapon much bigger than ‘crisis creation’ and intimidation.
Our secret weapon is the TRUTH.
Before His crucifixion, Jesus said to Pontius Pilate: “To this end I was born, and for this cause I came into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth.” (John 18:37)
So, why would we do anything different? After all, we know that TRUTH has already prevailed. We just have to exercise patience and perseverance to see it through.
