Oh my. Does it get any stranger than this? The NEA, that’s the National Education Association, funded by YOUR taxpayer $$, has endorsed two books by Saul Alinsky, radical Marxist/socialist mentor to Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. One is Rules for Radicals and the other is the Reveille For Radicals and there are links on their site to where to buy it. America just gets weirder and weirder by the day. Here’s the link to the page on the NEA website, again, paid for by YOUR tax dollars. If you need more information about Saul Alinsky, I have written extensively about him on this blog…there’s a whole category devoted to this man.
Update: Found this on the page and thought quoting it might be enlightening…
Alinski practiced what he preached. He said, “Tactics means doing what you can with what you have … tactics is the art of how to take and how to give.”
He uses eyes, ears and nose for examples…
“If you have a vast organization, parade it before the enemy, openly show your power.”
Editor’s Translation: Intimidation is good. The enemy is the average American taxpayer.
“If your organization is small, do what Gideon did: conceal the members in the dark but raise a clamor that will make the listener believe that your organization numbers many more that it does.”
Editor: This one reminds me of ACORN. ACORN has previously been “concealed in the dark”. I take it Saul Alinsky is not into “transparency”, but rather into concealment. And the Gideon he speaks of is the Gideon of the Bible who was called out by God to take on the enemies of the nation. It’s too bad Saul didn’t believe the rest of the Bible and use it too. Since the mortgage and banking crisis has happened, we now see and hear the “clamor” of ACORN and its tactics have been openly revealed.
“If your organization is too tiny even for noise, stink up the place.”
Editor: Yes, I think ACORN and its corrupt elements have indeed been “stinking up the place”. Of course, that’s all with the gracious help of our illustrious and resourceful Federal government and elected representatives.
