Interestingly, as an aside, what is today called, by most everyone, community organizing, Alinsky called agitating. However, as the left often does, somewhere along the line, agitator was deemed too negative – too radical, so it magically became organizer. Who could be against organization?
To be more precise, Alinsky preached that an agitator’s job isn’t to organize, but to enter and already organized community, agitate to disorganize it and re-organize the community to better achieve the agitators goal.
However, Alinsky would not have approved of the amalgamation of dirty hippies and ne’er-do-wells. He taught that true “revolutionaries” should not “flaunt their radicalism.” They should “cut their hair, put on suits and infiltrate the system from within.”
Is any of this sounding familiar?
Many think Hillary is somehow, like her husband, more moderate than Barack, but it was she who was a direct disciple of Alinsky.
So impressed was Alinsky with Hillary, that he offered her a job. She turned him down to go on to attend Yale Law School – but that wasn’t the only reason. Apparently, she had become convinced that, although she agreed with the Alinsky philosophy, she found his methods of local agitating to be not “large” enough.
I know Obama feels the same way. Many Alinsky disciples evidently feel the same way – that his local agitating and disorganizing philosophy can and should be played out on a grander, national scale.
Again, does this sound familiar?
How many times over the past five years – certainly since his reelection, have we heard that Obama wants to remake America? Look around and see how many government departments and agencies appear to be “dis-organized.”
Now, in his second term, I’m certain he feels no need to hold back. All there is left to do is decide what more he wants to dis-organize in order to re-organize or re-make.
Evidently, he has chosen immigration and an open border, and he and his cohorts are bringing all their button-down, clean cut radicalism to bear regarding it.
If things continue unabated, the only question that will remain is what America will look like after Obama’s reorganization and which hand-picked radical he will choose as his successor to carry on Alinsky’s vision.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
