The Alinsky Reaction Chain

[tweetmeme source=AlinskyDefeater only_single=false]

This is the essence of the Alinsky reaction chain…

The tenth rule: The major premise for tactics is the development of operations that will maintain a constant pressure upon the opposition. It is this unceasing pressure that results in the reactions from the opposition that are essential for the success of the campaign. It should be remembered not only that the action is in the reaction but that action is itself the consequence of reaction and of reaction to the reaction, ad infinitum. The pressure produces the reaction, and constant pressure sustains action.

–  Rules for Radicals, p. 129

Conspiracy theories abound, and conjecture is fine as long as it is not implied to be factual, but if the Left can make you react out of fear and/or anger, they will eventually get you to do or say something stupid that they can use against you. Make no mistake it is all Alinsky all the time with this group. Don’t let them outthink you. Stay a step ahead.

This just couldn’t wait until I got to the tenth rule in my series, because the Obama Administration is controlling the reaction chain, and conservatives have got to get it back. We had it during the town halls, after the election of Scott Brown, and for a while on terrorism, but they have it now.

They are controlling the reaction chain only because we are letting them, and we simply cannot let fear and paranoia overwhelm our logic and reason. Don’t let them make you so angry and frustrated that you resort to unfounded conspiracy theories or veiled threats of violence – this is EXACTLY WHAT THEY WANT YOU TO DO.

Stay calm. Stay logical. Stay strong. Stay focused. Stay peaceful. Use the fact that you are on the right side as your shield against their provocations, and always remember that their intention is to spur you to do or say something stupid.

    You do an excellent service in the lessons on Alinsky. WHAT IS OUR MISSION = THE PRESERVATION OF AMERICA which requires as many people as possible seeing what is TRUTH. I focus on a few key issues which are critical because whether or not things like the birth issue are a disqualifier or not, the programming of the Alinsky Warriors is that birthers are Right Wing Nutjobs. I feel that it is critical to help the Delusional Deniers (None are so blind as they who will not see) to see TRUTH. If I taint (regardless of validity of my claim) my information with a programmed trigger, they immediately discount what I say and I have failed to expand my ability to communicate and help that person to see the TRUTH. Our egos are not even close to as important as our country and we must keep our goal of recruiting people to Right cause, not help the AWFUL administration gain a more steadfast supporter because we failed in our mission.

    We are not doing as good a job as we should be in implementing the Alinsky Strategy substituting TRUTH for deceitful illusion. TRUTH is so powerful that the Alinsky Warriors of the AWFUL administration (Alinsky Warriors Fooling Unknowing Lemmings) must destroy or marginalize people like Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Sarah Palin ++++ because a toe to toe would illuminate the subversive’s mission. They do not stand the test under the light of TRUTH!
    The Arizona situation with Arizona having a law based on the ignored federal law and the mayhem and tearjerking anecdotes (don’t have to be manufactured or distorted as some of Obama’s were for healthcare) give a lot of ammunition if we can get it outside of the choir. Our challenge is that conservatives are more civil and logical verses the emotional, violent and aggressive Progressives who rush podiums ot physically intimidate speakers or fill buildings with intimidators or create deceitful illusions. I am not sure how we communicate with the emotional people except maybe show murder or kidnap victims and ask why the Obama administration can’t be bothered with these victims anymore than it can be bothered with the unemployed. We have a great opportunity with the unemployed using the Obama administration could care less about you – you are throw aways just like the Arizona victims. They have more important things on their agenda than to worry about the American voters that were conned. Publc servants are in danger with the administration hiring to build a captive voter base. The more public servants, the less stable the abilibity of the government to support them until the Cloward – Piven prescribed condition to push America socialist is achieved. Their job security is inversely related to increasing public employment.

    I do not know where to post this so I will do it here. I clicked the “Yost for Congress” in the menu. One thing I noticed he did not list the Congressional District he is running for. It is FL-3rd. Then I wanted to know about Rep. Corrine Brown. I used http://www.govtrack.us. I see she sponsored a bill called “Relief for Walter Enrique Lara”. I did a Google of him. From that I learned there is a “Dream Act”. How many people have ever heard of the “Dream Act”. I wonder how much the program is going to cost.
