All Alinsky all the Time: How the Left is Goading the Right, and the Right is Taking the Bait

[tweetmeme source=AlinskyDefeater only_single=false]

“The enemy properly goaded and guided in his reaction will be your major strength.” -Saul Alinsky

This is the Democratic strategy in a nutshell. I wrote earlier about the Alinsky Reaction Chain, and the current methods employed to keep conservatives off track are nothing more than a continuation of those thoughts.

Why is a race such a hot topic? Because if you’re talking about race, you’re not talking about 9.5% unemployment, a quadrupling of the deficit in one year, the corruption and failure of the stimulus, the unpopularity of Obamacare, the failure to address illegal immigration, the fact that the majority of the nation doesn’t want the Federal Government suing Arizona over S.B. 1070 or any other myriad of unpopular policies and Presidential failures.

The Left wants you to talk about race, birth certificates, obstructionism, and anything else it can think to throw at you that will cause an emotional response and make you react without even thinking about it. It’s not an accident, it’s a tactic and it’s working.

The Left will attempt to goad you into talking about any subject it can think of to keep people from discussing the nefarious schemes and abject failure of this Administration and its policies. It is your job to be smarter than that. It is your job to know when Alinsky tactics are being used against you and ignore them. It is your job to shine light on the failures and lies of this Congress and this Administration and ignore the goading designed to make you react exactly the way they want you to.

It’s not your job to defend yourself or the Tea Party or anyone else against false charges of racism or violence. In short, it is your job to generate more light than heat. Don’t take the bait! Put the pressure on the Left to defend their positions and proposals.

    Though I agree there is a lot to criticize on the left, the fact is they have a ‘no fear’ mentality, and really don’t care one bit about anything the right finds. There is no smoke and mirrors, it’s all open and public: the agenda, the policy, the power grab. This is an administration led simply by the Machiavellian principle, ‘The ends justifies the means’, and any means possible is used to gain dictator power over the people of the United States. Americans were asleep at the switch, and the train is about to hit the the blown out bridge of socialisim, what can we do now?

    The very fact that conservatives WON’T talk about race is why there is 97% Democrat party loyalty among the black community. The FACTS are that the Democrat Party is the racist party and ALWAYS HAS BEEN. They were the Confederates. They were the KKK. They originated Jim Crow laws. They created “separate but (un)equal” schools. They set dogs and firehoses on Freedom Fighters. They attempted to prevent black students from campuses. They voted down the Civil Rights Act of 1957. They filibustered the 1964 Civil Rights Act. They decimated black families with their “welfare” slavery.

    The Democrat Party hasn’t DONE ONE DAMNED THING to “help” minorities. NOT ONE! And now their full-blown Marxist “equal opportunity oppression” is about to resurrect Plantation Economics…

    No, we should DRIVE THIS POINT HOME. Why dodge it….again? Time to set the damned record straight and ALL of us FINALLY be “free at last”!!

    How come I lived 67 years and never heard of Saul Alinsky until 2009? I guess I didn’t attend the right schools and I never joined the Communist party in the 50s. Have any of you read None Dare Call It Treason by John A. Stormer? It will make you sick but it explains the concessions made at Yalta, the Korean War, and the Viet Nam War. We were never in it to win, but that was something the soldiers had to gradually come to realize as they gave their lives and their sanity. These Wikileaks are showing that the crazies in our government are following the same strategy in Afghanistan. I think we should bring the military home and let them help with our security at home, but that won’t happen until the government has better control of all us citizens. As to the record as it concerns the Democrats and Blacks, it is sad they don’t understand economics well enough to figure out that the more illegals we bring in here the less wealth there is to give to each one. They are thinking just tax the rich! I was shouted down at a Democratic meeting when I pointed out that the rich could go elsewhere. They are real smart. They think if they yell loud enough, it will make their beliefs come true.

    In the spirit of your blog….

    The President had the audacity to say this about the “tax cuts for the wealthy:”

    “The republicans say they are deficit hawks yet they want to keep tax cuts for the wealthy, 700 billion dollars over 10 years that we just can’t afford.”–BHO

    And I ask we remember this “So what you’re saying Mr. President is that 700 billion that helps the job creators in our economy have a greater sense of certainty and ability to invest over the next 10 years is not a good enough “stimulus” when compared to the $767 billion spent in 2 years as though a black hole of union patronage had spawned in the United States Treasury?”

    10 years @ 70 billion a year in the hands of those who employ people is wrong, while $767 billion spent in 2 years that accomplished nothing except primarily to payback the unions, is a good investment? At what point do we realize there is a “kick me” sign, placed strategically on our backs with the seal of approval of Barack Hussein Obama, for purposes of mocking us in assumption of our stupidity?

    767 billion with nothing to show for it while the Bush Tax Cust of 2001 spawned unprecendented economic growth until Carter’s Recovery Act caught up to us, and now we’re stuck with Carter’s second term being channeled by Obama!
