Alinsky’s son boasts that Obama uses his father’s methods

Ann has been writing a series of posts summarizing and commenting on Saul Alinsky’s book, Rules for Radicals. I recommend you read them all, because President Obama is well trained in Alinsky’s subversive and radical methods. It is easier to understand what Obama is doing if you keep Alinsky in mind.

Today Phyllis Schlafly has a column, Alinsky’s Rules: Must Reading in Obama Era, which is a good summary of this dangerous man’s thoughts. It begins:

Immediately after the Democratic National Convention in Colorado, the Boston Globe published a letter from David Alinsky. He boasted about how Barack Obama had made effective use of his training in the methods of David’s late father, the famous Chicago radical, Saul Alinsky.

David Alinsky gloated: “I am proud to see that my father’s model for organizing is being applied successfully beyond local community organizing to affect the Democratic campaign in 2008. It is a fine tribute to Saul Alinsky as we approach his 100th birthday.”

Here are a couple more good paragraphs. Think of Obama as you read them:

He wanted a radical change of America’s social and economic structure, and he planned to achieve that through creating public discontent and moral confusion. Alinsky developed strategies to achieve power through mass organization, and organizing was his word for revolution.

Alinsky didn’t want just talkers. He wanted radicals who were prepared to take bold action to organize the discontented, precipitate crises, grab power and transform society. He taught his organizers how to infiltrate existing institutions such as churches, unions and political parties, gain influence in them and introduce change.

And now an Alinsky organizer has infiltrated the most powerful institution in the world: the executive branch of the United States government. No wonder David Alinsky is proud.

Addendum: Here’s an audio/video of Mark Levin discussing Alinsky. There are many other links on the page that might be relevant, but I just listened to this one.
