Ridicule is man's most potent weapon - Saul Alinsky

O-Camp Termed 'Ruthless, Effective'

An Excerpt from the Book, "Rules for Radicals Defeated" by AlinskyDefeater

The days of traditional politics are over. Conservatives would be well served to abandon the acquiescent political hand wringing, and build the skill necessary to engage and defeat their opponents. In the age of Obama, politics has morphed into one part traditional political strategy mixed with one or more parts Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals. We must find a way to defeat our opponents without becoming them. To defeat their morally bankrupt schemes it will be necessary to learn their tactics well. Simply learning their tactics and then turning them back on them, however, will make us no better than them. Instead, we must learn the tactics and the principles designed to defeat them.

The name Saul Alinsky seems to have been resurrected from obscurity in the past few years. He was a community organizer whose work ranged from the 1930’s to the 1970’s, and was most famous for his book Rules for Radicals, wherein he outlined a set of tactics for revolution. His goal was to empower the “Have-nots” in such a way that they could overpower the “Haves”, and create a new, fairer society. If it sounds a lot like Marxism to you, well, you’re not alone. Although his book has remained somewhat popular over the years, it was the emergence of Barack Obama on the national political scene that truly brought Alinsky back into the limelight; and even though he died in 1972, Rules for Radicals became the Bible for community organizers like Barack Obama. As you will see, the tactics taught in that book are both ruthless and effective.

The Muslim Brotherhood in America, 5 & 6

The U.S. Left throws open its Big Tent flap


Class struggle(in Marxist ideology) the conflict of interests between the workers and the ruling class in a capitalist society, regarded as inevitably violent.
"Oh [Muslim] brothers, the nation that excels in the death industry, and knows how to die a noble [death], Allah grants it a precious life in this world and eternal bliss in the Afterlife. The only weakness that shall humiliate us is the love of this world and hating death. Therefore we have prepared your souls for great action, strive for death - and life will be given to you."-- From Palwatch translation of The Muslim Brotherhood handbook.

Trumka Thugs Loot AFL-CIO Assets

WH eyes coveted site for wayward National Workers Memorial
In the latest sign of the fast-shrinking Big Labor movement, the National Labor College established in 1969 by AFL-CIO icon George Meany to teach new labor organizing tactics and management to new generations of activists is selling its sprawling Silver Spring, Md. campus.

The reason: they just can’t afford to keep the facilities housing the academic arm of the labor movement open anymore. “The cost to operate and maintain a large campus in such an expensive metropolitan area is exorbitant,” said the college. No other college in the Washington area has closed or is planning to close because of costs.

Instead of teaching students at the facility just off New Hampshire Avenue at the Capital Beltway, online courses will be offered. Once the 47-acre facility is rezoned and sold, student housing will disappear. Instead, new students will get to live in union halls. Some 200,000 union leaders have passed through the college which offers undergraduate degrees at community college prices.

In a symbolic blow to the labor movement, the school said it was giving up management of the George Meany Memorial Archives & Library. It will be up to the AFL-CIO to figure out what to do with it, said the school. And the National Workers Memorial, on the Silver Spring campus, will have to be moved.
