Saul Alinsky might possibly be the most important man in America today. Even though he's dead, his vicious tactics are very much alive. To progressive ideologists, he is their Jesus and they are his disciples, carrying out his vision for a Godless, centrally controlled utopia.
Listen to the full series:
Saul Alinsky Part I
Saul David Alinsky --- revered by Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama and other progressive radicals --- was a man who would grow up fantasizing about organizing hell itself. Born during a cold Chicago winter in 1909, Alinsky's parents were Russian Jewish immigrants who were strict Orthodox Jews. They divorced when he was 13, and Alinsky moved with his father to Los Angeles, returning later to attend college at the University of Chicago.
By the time Alinsky came back to Chicago, he was no longer practicing Judaism. Instead, he was agnostic, even though he continued to identify with his Jewish heritage throughout his life. He had also changed emotionally and politically. Alinsky had become radicalized and discontented with the United States of America. And he wanted to change the nation he believed was unfair by doing what he enjoyed best: community organizing to overthrow the system.
Saul Alinsky Part II
After spending time with members of the Communist Party in the 1930s, Saul Alinsky developed a strange new way for radicals to fundamentally transform the United States. For a fee, he would infiltrate certain communities to stir up and agitate the poor and minorities. Yet, arguably, the only one he lifted out of poverty using these methods was himself. Community organizing gained Alinsky the financial security to live in a beautiful home in affluent Carmel-by-the-Sea, California, far from the ghettos and slums where he caused so much strife and commotion.
Alinsky's tactics and results caught the attention of generations of radicals. His last book, Rules for Radicals, became the bible for those in America seeking radical transformation. And his strange, creepy acknowledgment to Lucifer at the beginning of the book provided insight into his goals and desires.
Saul Alinsky Part III
Saul Alinsky started his journey in activism with communists, learning some of their best techniques to organize and agitate. He then expanded and spread that knowledge to a new generation of American radicals with his book Rules for Radicals, which would influence people with great power in the United States.
Alinsky's most famous and successful rule was to pick a target, freeze it, personalize it and polarize it, creating a public enemy with a face and name. Alinsky was unapologetic about his controversial tactics, believing the ends justified the means.
In 1967, on William F. Buckley's Firing Line, he was confronted about his tactics.
BUCKLEY: Can I quote you exactly? Quote: There is no evolution without revolution, and there are no revolutions without conflict. And this is the line which separates liberals from radicals.
ALINSKY: Where'd you get that?
ALINSKY: All right. No, I'll buy it.
Similar to Alinsky, today's radicals like Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton are unapologetic about their polarizing and violent tactics. Instead, they accuse those on the right of being dangerous and potentially violent.
Saul Alinsky Part IV
Saul Alinsky may be dead, but his radical leftist guidelines are alive and well. Extreme leftists admire and emulate him. There are examples every single day of left-wing politicians putting Alinsky's rules into practice. Barack Obama himself masterfully employs rule number five on a regular basis: Ridicule is man's most potent weapon. There is no defense. It's irrational. It's infuriating. It also works as a key pressure point to force the enemy into concessions.
Now that we know Alinsky's rules and how they are implemented, what is the solution to stop this progressive, Marxist and radical agenda? If we don't teach each others and our children, we will cede this nation to the followers of Saul Alinsky.
