Alinsky Principles

From the book by David Horowitz, “Barack Obama’s Rules for Revolution, The Alinsky Model.

Excerpt 1:

“Unlike the Communists who identified their goal as a Soviet State, and thereby generated opposition to their schemes,  Alinsky followers organize their power bases without naming  the end game, without declaring a specific future they want to achieve,  socialism, communism, a dictatorship of the proletariat, or anarchy.

Without committing themselves to concrete principles or a specific future, they organize exclusively to build the power base which they can use to destroy the existing society and its economic system. By refusing to commit to principles or to identify their goal, they have been able to organize a coalition of all elements of the left who were previously divided by disagreements over means and ends. “

Excerpt 2:

David Horowitz goes on to say,  In my experience conservatives are generally too decent and too civilized to match up adequately with their radical adversaries, at least in the initial stages of the battle.  They are too prone to give them the benefit of the doubt, to believe there is goodness and good sense in them which will outweigh their determination to change the world.

Radicals talk of justice and equality. They can’t really want to destroy a society that is democratic and liberal, and more equal than others, and that has brought wealth and prosperity to so many people.  Oh, yes they can. 

Excerpt 3:

Conservatives think of a war as a metaphor when applied to politics.  For radicals, the war is real.  That is why when partisans of the left go into battle, they set out to destroy their opponents by stigmatizing them as “racists”, “sexists”, “homophobes”, and “Islamophobes”.

It is also why they so often pretend to be what they are not (liberals for example).  And rarely say what they mean.  Deception for them is a military tactic in a war that is designed to eliminate the enemy.

Excerpt 4:

Deception is the radical’s most important weapon, and it has been a prominent one since the end of the sixties.  Radical arsonists such as Al Sharpton and Jeremiah Wright pose as civil rights activists;  Anti- American radicals such as Bill Ayers pose as patriotic progressives;  socialists pose as liberals.  The mark of their success is reflected in the fact that conservatives collude in the deception and call them liberals as well.

 

As conservatives we must accept that these radicals are in this political race as if in a real battle to destroy the fabric of our society, cause economic catastrophe,  shred our Constitution because they do not believe in it, and bring down our entire government.

By realizing what the enemy is doing we can better fight these radicals.  We need to stop calling them liberals and progressives.  They are more like communists and/or Marxists.  They mean business.  They fight as dirty as they can.  One example is the deplorable act of harry reid standing on the floor of the Senate and basically calling Romney a tax cheat with no real source.

They do not care how many lies they tell, how many lives they destroy in their process to take down our Republic.  We cannot think of these people as just a bunch of loons, but we must think of them as the enemy to our country.

  1. Can’t help but wonder if fighting against the “collapse” of our government may not be such a bad thing, eaten up from within by corrupt people and all. Might it not be more useful to work instead on building a state withing the state, based on the original principles of the republic, and likely to grow stronger and more resistant to incursion as the syndicate in DC becomes more bloated and incestuous. The decline of the national government, if it is subsumed by stronger, more independent states willing to cleave to the original intent of the founders as put forth in both the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, may not be a bad outcome, especially if we build in stronger safeguards that would ferret out the weasesl that try to misinterpret verbage while ignoring principles.

      I would love to see you explain just how your suggestion is to be accomplished. Right now I see it as the same old attitude we’ve been trying for years (building from within…same damn old passive approach) to accomplish SAVING our Republic government and the only place that has gotten us is where we are today…on the verge of being completely screwed.

      Who in the hell wants to make our government collapse? The very people we are suppose to be trying to stop. We want to save our Republic government and the passive approach has not worked. They are winning the damn war, because we have been to passive. We are currently watching the collapse of our government and that also means the destruction of our Republic. We don’t want to throw the baby out with the bath water. We need to clean up the polluted water and being passive, playing nice, waiting for them to fail has not worked. We need completely run them over and stomp their asses into the mud as is our duty. Our Founders knew exactly what they were talking about when they wrote the Constitution and we need nothing more. We simply need to not stray from that magnificent piece of work. Come on man; give me a frigging break.

      • Don’t confuse my blurb as wanting this. I will fight tooth and nail to prevent it. Always easier and less energy to repair than to destroy and rebuild. But Alinsky had no endpoint beyond destruction. With the continuing to escalate debt, we are closer and closer to a scenario with no way out that leaves current institutions intact. With that ad an endpoint, I do not fancy being ruled by whomever happens to be in the musical chair of power when it occurs. Rather have a fall back plan that reinatitutes government by the people. That started with the individual states. I think it will have to again.

          I’m glad you clarified you will fight to prevent it. Of course the debt is a major problem and some gov institutions will end up going…and thank God for that, because way too many should have never been created: DHS, EPA, TSA…on and on and on. Our constitution specifies only one institution the fed gov shall provide for us and that is the postal service. We The People are responsible for the problem we find ourselves, because we have allowed politicians to stray to far away from our constitution.

          IMO; we have no room left to even plan for a “fall back”. We’ve already let ourselves get backed up all the way to the edge of oblivion letting these commie bastards get this far. If we lose the elections in November we will have zero political power to try and reinstate a government by the people. That leaves only one option to restore power to the people, the states and abide by our constitution.

      I’m surprised about your thought and question,, “Can’t help but wonder if fighting against the “collapse” of our government may not be such a bad thing,” In my opinion, no true Patriot would even consider “not” fighting for our Country and our Freedom.

      You know drrik, I and many other Veterans put our lives on the line, spilled our blood and watched thousands of of our fellow soldiers die to save this country. With no question about should we or shouldn’t we?

        If there were a call to attack, and an actual physical assault would turn the direction of the government around, I would consider it. But it won’t. And our founders gave us the means to turn them out, one at a time, and without having to shoot them. I look at it as building a foundation. We outnumber the socialists substantially. We HAVE to build a stable, communicating base first if we are going to be able to push effectively against this.

          We differ in our thinking here. Using “the system” to get them out is fine and we by all means try. However, the system (the Govt.) is so corrupt and the general American is so naive they can be easily guided toward a Totalitarian government.
          Oh and by the way, they are not Socialists they’re Communists.

          You wrote; “our founders gave us the means to turn them out.” Yes they did. If a society is moral, the system works great. But when a society turns immoral and dishonest under a corrupt government …well, the Founders saw that to.

          The Declaration of Independence stated “When a long train of abuses and usurpation’s pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce [a people] under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their DUTY, to throw off such Government,”

          And also, that’s why we have this.. “A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the People to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.”

          Insinuated? Obama did not worm his way into the White House. He was voted in as are all elected officials. He (sadly) was lawfully granted the title of president. Then these type people go further to appoint people to powerful positions that have the same screwed up ideology. All of this was done right before our very eyes. You’ve lost me again drrik and while I’m not the smartest you’ll ever meet I’m also not the dumbest.

          Also, If we out number “them” substantially, then how did Obama get elected in the first place?

    I’m really glad you decided to put the information in this book on the internet. I only wish that millions of people could and would read it. I think most people don’t really understand that we are indeed in a real war. Many, if not most, people think our political system still works and that they can “just vote the Traitor Ovomit out of office.” Nothing could be further from the truth! These “Radicals,” Liberals, Marxist, Communists etc. have established a firm hold on our government and they are not about to give up that Power without a fight!

    They will use every dirty, filthy, corrupt method they must in an attempt to keep Ovomit in office.

    Great post! We are in the worse war we’ve ever been in fighting the worse enemy we’ve ever faced. I think Horowitz nailed it when he basically called our previous attempts to save our Republic those of wussies. We have to get ass aggressive as possible and get the commie bastards out of our government. Time to fight fire with fire. First we will try to vote them out and if that doesn’t work we will need to physically get them out. They gotta go and we have no time left to waste. It is our duty to get rid of them and hopefully it can be done peacefully.

Much more likely to work setting up chains to spread info, working with Tea party and 912 and the like. And tackling local offices. And burning up the lines with the state rep. Organization is the only way to make it effective. I’m as angry as any but not useful to strike out when so many are paralysed by the assumption of normalcy.

            No one I know is running off looking to shoot anyone and would prefer it not come down to a revolution, but they’re not scared either if that is the only option left.

            Our military did not and never has swore to protect anything except our constitution. They don’t swear to protect gov employees, including the president. I work with my Tea Party Senator every chance I get, but Harry Reid is a corrupt democrat that kisses Obama’s ass and he solely decides what the senate votes on. My state rep just happens to be a corrupt democrat that kisses Obama’s ass, so we get no where contacting him and many are stuck in the same position. This blog and thousands just like it shine the light on what is really going on every single day.

            I burn the internet up every day reading all kinds of comments from all around the country and I see “so many” are very enraged, because they can see nothing is normal anymore. There is so much rage I don’t see a plague of people paralyzed by the assumption of normalcy.

            Obama must go and hopefully he will be voted out in November. Harry Reid must go along with a boat load of corrupt senator’s and house members; demo and repub. However; Obama is priority #1 and the Martin Luther King approach is not going to change a damn thing with Obama running around like a king.

          I don’t disagree with need for organizing, which is what Horowitz indicates. ‘Yes we can.’ But lets not kid ourselves either, their ways of organizing on the left is really about control, pure and simple. They control the institutions, labor orgs etc. So, to a point, we are working within that system as corrupt as it is.(& forced to operate in that paradigm) Yet it is power and control, they have it in many ways. And we are fighting that as much as just a peer opponent. (i.e Party) Trent Lott said that once Tea Partiers or patriots came to DC their goal was to co-opt them. This ishe mndset we face. But understand it is power and control problem, not just an organizing problem Ihave listened and tried the organizing route over 14years, always seeing that idealism. What we face, whatever we call it, it is institutionalized.

They cannot bring themselves to understand how polluted our government is with anti-American politicians. Our so-called representatives want to destroy our Republic form of government and replacing it with a
            Socialist/Communist style govt. (with themselves in control of course.)

            These people say “no! That’s not right. No true American would do that to their own country!” That’s right, no TRUE American would. What they are so blind to see is that our government has been infiltrated and being controlled by the enemy!

            I’ve lined up with organizations every since I reached voting age, but have realized the party I organized with doesn’t give a shit about me or our constitution. They only want power also.

            It is now down to us to organize and the way we’ve tried over many, many years has unfortunately failed and played right into their hands. We thought we were backing the good guys, but they sure have the last laugh up to this point. My point being it won’t do shit to stand on the steps of the Capital building holding a Bible and yelling, “Repent!” I don’t think they want forgiveness.

            My final point being what did I do while raising my child when he stepped out of line? I didn’t waste time with that timeout bullshit. I busted his ass.

What else bugs me is the libs have also manipulated too many Christians into supporting their machinations.We saw what they did to Tea Parties when it threatened theirpower hold. They can’t allow it. They have power and control to oppose it and they will. Its a softer version(tyranny) of Syria but the same concept.

Just like our Founding Father’s did when they wrote the laws to govern our Republic, because they had just freed us from a dictator. Way too many people today seem to have forgotten that little fact and also they gave us our freedom by kicking the dictator’s ass in a war!

The only History they teach in earnest is Socialism. But Islam is mandatory. Some schools have even made kids honer the Muslims by making them spend two weeks dressed as Muslims and studying the the Qu’ran. The Bible and any sign of Christian belief is not allowed on campus!

            Bingo Hawk. The Prussian model of education. The root of all western problems. Unquestioning and blind adherence to a state curriculum. Teachers do not teach, they indoctrinate. To teach a child to question is a moral obligation. Teachers are themselves trained by marxists within the universities, who in turn set curriculums and examination.

            Brainwashed is an apt description. Global Warming a prime example of the great lie. Let us not forget these are children, the innocent.
            Whilst many have tried to change the system from within, institutional and political, it is frankly corrupt to the core.

            When I ask myself why I saw my brother infantry die, I am saddened to admit it was for the great lie. We were not defending our land, our people, we were defending what Ike warned us all about.

            I am now of an age, and opinion that the only way forward is through radical change. How that is achieved is not mysterious, history teaches us the way.
