Karl Marx (1818-1883), Vladimir Lenin (1870-1924), Joseph Stalin (1878-1953) and others like Saul Alinsky (1909-1972) were radical writers, activists, socialists or communists. It’s truly quite amazing to see the influence that their radical ideas spanning more than 100-years have had upon our nation’s politicians, some of whom today are among the leaders of our country.
To show you how radical Alinsky’s book “Rules for Radicals” is let’s look to determine to whom he dedicated the book.
“Lest we forget at least an over-the-shoulder acknowledgment to the very first radical: from all our legends, mythology, and history (and who is to know where mythology leaves off and history begins or 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.”
Hillary Clinton chose Alinsky’s work as the topic for her Wellesley College thesis in 1969 entitled, “There is Only the Fight: An Analysis of the Alinsky Model” after having twice interviewed him. In her thesis, Hillary, according to The Boston Globe wrote, “Much of what Alinsky professes does not sound ‘radical.’… His are the words used in our schools and churches, by our parents and their friends, by our peers. The difference is Alinsky really believes in them and recognizes the necessity of changing the present structures of our lives in order to realize them.” Barack Obama, who worked as a community organizer in the mid-80s referenced Alinsky in his books just a few years ago.
Today we can see where people like Marx, Lenin, Stalin and Alinsky and some of their beliefs like those espoused in the Communist Manifesto and Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals have spread and how their influence has played out in the careers of Hillary and Obama. As politicians they’re applying many of the rules and working to achieve many of the goals of those four men.
Here are just 8-goals from Communism in America, a list of 45-goals that Obama and Hillary are continuing to try and achieve in America. You can read the entire list here: http://www.rense.com/general32/americ.htm.
You may determine for yourself if this is what’s happening and succeeding in America today.
#1: Healthcare – Control healthcare, particularly mental health and you control the people.
#2: Poverty – Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture–education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.
#3: Debt – Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.
#4: Gun Control – Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.
#5: Welfare – Take control of every aspect of their lives (Food, Housing and Income)
#6: Education – Take control of what people read and listen to – take control of what children
learn in school.
#7: Religion – Remove the belief in God from government and schools.
#8: Class Warfare – Divide the people into the wealthy and the poor. This will cause more discontent and it will be easier to tax the wealthy with the support of the poor.
At this point, what you just read should be sounding frighteningly familiar. These are the goals for the implementation of communism in America and many presidents have help create this problem, and Obama has already achieved these 8-goals and many more of the 45 needed to create a government run “Social or Communist State.”
Pay attention to what Hillary has said about continuing Obama’s policies – meaning she’ll finish up the few aspects of some goals not yet achieved and work to complete the plan. In every nation where this has been tried, the ultimate result has been the destruction of those nations.
As Voltaire stated in the 18th Century, “It is difficult to free fools from the chains they revere.” Is America ready to allow the ideas and goals of Marx, Lenin, Stalin and Alinsky, and the plans of Obama and perhaps Hillary to be completed? Your vote in November will answer that question.Tags: Fascism Hillary Saul Alinsky Socialism
