I was going through some old emails from a friend when I ran across these step-by-step instructions on how to build a Socialist state. As always, I ran it through google to see what popped up. I found a link to our old friends at Snopes, which clearly denied that there has ever been any connection between Barack Obama and Saul Alinsky, the creator of the principles on the list. To prove it, they used the obvious dates and ages of both men.
Critics of President Barack Obama (who also worked as a community organizer in Chicago prior to embarking on his political career) have often linked his name with that of Saul Alinsky, sometimes in ways that suggest the two men knew each other and/or worked together. However, they never met: Alinsky died of a heart attack in 1972, when Barack Obama was, but a ten-year-old child living in Hawaii.
So, according to Snopes, because Obama and Alinsky couldn’t have possibly met it is obvious that there is no connection between the two. Wrong.
Most conservatives know that Snopes is owned and operated by an ultra-liberal couple, Barbara and David Mikkelson, of California. All anyone has to do is check into the lies and half-truths posted by Snopes and compare them to real videos and quotes to see that there really is a strong liberal bias there.
While it is true that Saul Alinsky died at age 63 when Obama was just a child, it is also true that he could and probably did have great influence on Barack Obama. Many avid readers will tell you that they consider favorite authors to be friends. I have books by two authors
I consider friends and mentors. Both of these authors wrote a century ago, and they have been dead for many years, yet they have both had a profound impact on my life and the lives of thousands who I have taught through classes, preaching, or through my writing over the past 35 years.
The infamous photo of Obama teaching Saul Alinsky’s principles at college are very clear proof that Alinsky had a deep influence on Obama.
The Gateway Pundit explains that those who knew him as a “professor” have revealed how he came to be in the role.
The highest tenured faculty member at Chicago Law spoke out on Barack Obama saying, “Professors hated him because he was lazy, unqualified, never attended any of the faculty meetings.”
Doug Ross reported this and more:
I spent some time with the highest tenured faculty member at Chicago Law a few months back, and he did not have many nice things to say about “Barry.” Obama applied for a position as an adjunct and wasn’t even considered. A few weeks later the law school got a phone call from the Board of Trustees telling them to find him an office, put him on the payroll, and give him a class to teach. The Board told him he didn’t have to be a member of the faculty, but they needed to give him a temporary position. He was never a professor and was hardly an adjunct.
The other professors hated him because he was lazy, unqualified, never attended any of the faculty meetings, and it was clear that the position was nothing more than a political stepping stool. According to my professor friend, he had the lowest intellectual capacity in the building. He also doubted whether he was legitimately an editor on the Harvard Law Review, because if he was, he would be the first and only editor of an Ivy League law review to never be published while in school (publication is or was a requirement).
Obama, considered by many to be a Manchurian Candidate, has been following Alinsky’s eight-steps, to the letter, to dismantle our beautiful America.
How to Create a Social State: by Saul Alinsky (While you will not find these steps listed in Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals, you will find that they are clearly the guiding principles found in his book.)
There are 8 levels of control that must be obtained before you are able to create a social state. The first is the most important.
- Healthcare – Control healthcare and you control the people.
- Poverty – Increase the Poverty level as high as possible, poor people are easier to control and will not fight back if you are providing everything for them to live.
- Debt – Increase the debt to an unsustainable level. That way you are able to increase taxes, and this will produce more poverty.
- Gun Control – Remove the ability to defend themselves from the Government. That way you are able to create a police state.
- Welfare – Take control of every aspect of their lives (Food, Housing, and Income)
- Education – Take control of what people read and listen to – take control of what children learn in school.
- Religion – Remove the belief in the God from the Government and schools
- Class Warfare – Divide the people into the wealthy and the poor. This will cause more discontent,and it will be easier to take (Tax) the wealthy with the support of the poor.
Does any of this sound like what is happening to the United States? You don’t suppose that Obama is using Alinsky tactics to take over America? What is chilling is that we are only one election away from becoming a socialist country. We have to make a change NOW or there won’t be a tomorrow for America. It will happen unless you and I, and millions of others can make enough noise that Washington can’t ignore us.
