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.

    A Group that believes in an invisible man in the sky can’t maintain logical reasonable thinking. We Secular Egalitarian Antitheist Liberals have reality on our side. Christians have an imaginary Santa God on theirs.

    You don’t believe in something you can neither prove nor disprove. That makes it a leap of faith. I hope you understand irony.

    You also have faith in the goodwill of mankind when thousands of years of history actually do prove your faith is misplaced.

    You believe in empowering someone (government) over more and more of your life. Eventually you will meet the next Hitler, Stalin, or Mao. Your faith may actually lead you down the primrose path to the wall where they line up and shoot the useful idiots.

    You will come to understand the nature of this beast called mankind. Your socialism empowers the beast and gives the one power over you.

    Conservatism and capitalism recognize the evil in men’s hearts and takes advantage of the greed we all have in order to further society in a peaceful way. This too has been proven.

    You live by faith but you believe in nothing. We live by evidence and believe in faith.
