Americans must ask themselves a question: Do they want another president who is the disciple of a Marxist radical by the name of Saul David Alinsky? Then you might want to rethink things if you are a fan of Hillary Rodham Clinton.
During the 2008 Democratic primaries, candidates Barack Hussein Obama and Hillary Clinton indicated that they were acolytes of the Jewish socialist extremist Alinsky. The situation is reminiscent of the 2004 presidential election when two members of the secret society Skull and Bones, George W. Bush and John F. Kerry, vied for the White House.
The Alinsky problem emerged again with the recent disclosure of adoring letters sent by Mrs. Clinton to Alinsky in 1971. In this correspondence, Mrs. Clinton told Alinsky that she “missed their regular conversations” and thanked him for his advice on campus activism.
Mrs. Clinton’s ties to this man extend much deeper than mere correspondence. Not only did she write her undergraduate thesis on Alinsky, she also met with him several times, invited him to speak at Wellesley College and nearly went to work for him.
Who is Alinsky? According to Mark Davis and Emmett Tyrrell, the authors of the book Madame Hillary: The Dark Road to the White House, Alinsky is responsible for writing “the left-winger’s operating manual for revolution” in his landmark guide Rules for Radicals: A Practical Primer for Realistic Radicals.
As an indication of his character, Alinsky dedicated this subversive how-to book of guerrilla tactics to Lucifer.
In regard to his philosophy, Alinsky advocated a combination of political relativism and situational ethics. In Rules he pronounced, “The end justifies almost any means.” Alinsky then boasted, “ethical standards must be elastic,” and added, “all effective actions require the passport of morality.”
Relying on agitation, conflict and friction, Alinsky realized that “hope and change,” a phrase he proudly inspired, wouldn’t result from burning the system down, but by infiltrating it.
Commonly known as the father of community organizing, Alinsky’s overt shakedown policies of Chicago businessmen were later adopted by race hustler Jesse Jackson.
In his 1996 biography entitled The Seduction of Hillary Rodham, David Brock referred to Chicago native Hillary Clinton as “Alinsky’s daughter.”
Likewise, Obama also worked for Alinsky organizations in Chicago, taught seminars on Alinsky’s methods as a professor and adopted the man’s strategies of class warfare. After all, Alinsky urged, “The organizer’s first job is to create issues or problems.”
In a January 13, 2008, article entitled “Hillary, Obama and the Cult of Alinsky,” journalist Richard Poe made some startling revelations. In addition to Alinsky learning many of his gutter intimidation ploys from Al Capone’s top enforcer, a gangster named Frank Nitti, he was also promoted by Jewish Wall Street tycoon Eugene Meyer. It should be noted that Meyer served as Federal Reserve chairman during the 1930s and owned The Washington Post, an unabashed Bilderberg mouthpiece.
To get more insights on this sordid rabble-rouser, this reporter interviewed on September 23 Peter W. Schramm, a senior fellow at the Ashbrook Institute, an academic forum established to study and discuss the principles and practices of American constitutional government.
When asked why Mrs. Clinton’s letters to Alinsky are important, Schramm said: “People need to be reminded of her left-wing past that fell right in line with Alinsky’s radicalism of the 1960s. Hillary went along with all of Alinsky’s calls for social revolution, and it’s disingenuous of her to now hide it.”
Schramm provided more historical context.
“Alinsky led a transformation of ‘60s radicals that included Trotskyite and Leninist cells,” he said. “Their first targets weren’t Republicans, but ordinary liberals who defended the Constitution. Alinsky’s new left attacked old-fashioned Democrats because they weren’t radical enough. Although it took them awhile, Barack Obama is the first example of an Alinskyite new-left president.”
Coinciding with Obama’s coronation at the 2008 Democratic National Convention, L. David Alinsky, Saul’s son, told The Boston Globe on August 31, 2008: “I’m 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.”
Considering Obama’s vow to “fundamentally transform America,” it doesn’t seem particularly odd that when Mrs. Clinton reached out to Alinsky in 1971, she was employed in ultraliberal Berkeley, California at a leftist law firm named Treuhaft, Walker and Bernstein. Some of the firm’s clients included Black Panthers and other violent militants.
Mrs. Clinton’s Jewish boss, Robert Treuhaft, served for years as the Communist Party USA’s official attorney.
In the book Hell to Pay: The Unfolding Story of Hillary Rodham Clinton, author Barbara Olson wrote, “[Treuhaft] dedicated his entire legal career to advancing the agenda of the Soviet Communist Party and KGB.”
Following this stint, Mrs. Clinton landed a prime spot on the House Judiciary Committee’s Watergate investigative team in 1974. How did she get this job? Conveniently, another Jewish Alinsky devotee, Marian Wright Edelman, used her influence to open doors for Mrs. Clinton.
Utilizing a deadly ruthlessness to obtain her political objectives, Davis and Tyrrell offered these words of wisdom on Mrs. Clinton’s first rule of politics: “In the struggle for power, tactics take precedence over principles.” Apples don’t fall far from their trees, and not surprisingly, in Rules, Alinsky wrote: “The end is what you want, and the means is how you get it.”
After two terms of Obama’s scandal-ridden train wreck in the White House, it’s clear that America cannot survive four more years with another one of Alinsky’s sycophants occupying that seat.
