“… the community organizer … must first rub raw the resentments of the people; fan the latent hostilities to the point of overt expression.’ – Saul Alinsky, Rules for Radicals
Ahh, there’s that pesky Saul Alinsky statement again.
I just want to make an observation…and that is….while the “will nots” are being stirred into raw resentments at the plight of their condition, i.e. how dare those capitalists that work 60-80 hours a week have so much…that’s not right that they have so much and we have so little…how about a little class envy? At the same time this scenario is going on, there is another one going on….the “haves” are starting to be resentful because Komrade Obama wants to take from these hard working free marketers who have built a business from the ground up and given people jobs, and give their earnings to the “will nots”. Hmmm….2 for 1…it’s probably better than our president could have ever counted on, except one of the groups is on his side…and the other is definitely NOT on his side. What happens when these two sections of society are totally whipped up in resentments with their hostilities fanned to the point of overt expression? We now have the 912 Project, Tea Parties and all kinds of groups expressing their dissent against what the government is doing. Did Saul Alinsky ever envision such a scenario? I haven’t read the book, so I don’t know. Is it of Civil War proportions? Quite possibly.
