An Introduction to a Series on Understanding the Radical Left
IT’S WORTH CONSIDERING
I hope you have found my posts helpful in learning how to understand the bizarre things going on in our world these days, especially in our government. I am dependent on my sources for accurate information and one of my best sources in trying to understand our President and his agenda is David Horowitz of the Freedom Center. He was a former radical leftist who has “been there” and “done that.” He knows how leftists think, how they view the world, what their agenda is, and how they plan to reach their goal.
If everything they believe and every strategy of the radical left could be consolidated into one entity, it is Barack Obama. If we can understand what he has been nurtured on all his life-what makes him tick, then every scandal, his unwillingness to compromise, his demonization of his political opponents, and his determination to weave lie after lie into a make-believe narrative that he spoon feeds to the press and the American people makes sense.
Through the Freedom Center, Mr. Horowitz is trying to wake up America to the fact that the goal of the radical left is to seize power-complete and absolute power, regardless of what they claim. Every item on their agenda from health care to protecting the environment is simply another way to seize power. They see the world as consisting of “haves” and “have-nots” and they are determined to redistribute the wealth to make everyone equal. Stifling the independence of every American is crucial and they are willing to commit hideous atrocities with a clear conscience because they are “intoxicated by their own virtue.” Their noble intentions far outweigh the rights of the people.
Saul Alinsky is considered the guru of “community organizers.” In 1971 he wrote Rules for
Radicals, a book that has served as the Bible for the far left. Referring to Barack Obama, David Horowitz writes:
Of no other occupant of the White House can it be said that he owed his understanding of the political process to a man and a philosophy so outside the American mainstream, or so explicitly dedicated to opposing it.
To get a feel for the book, just consider that Alinsky dedicated it to Satan, his hero, his ultimate example of how a true radical should behave and think. This should explain why everything they do is based on deception. When they claim to be fighting against hate speech, they really mean anyone or anything that is critical of them.
AS I SEE IT
Without understanding how they think, conservatives will become easy prey. Our problem is that we play by the rules and actually have a conscience that guides us. Neither is true of leftists. Conservatives can’t believe that anyone could actually sink as low as things appear. Consequently, we keep giving them the benefit of the doubt. In reality, things are even worse than they appear. Liberals are morally bankrupt and their policies will never bring the results the American people need and want. Yet, they succeeded in electing Barack Obama twice, gaining majorities, and passing radical leftist legislation. According to Horowitz, they were successful because they knew how to:
• Focus their message and repeat it endlessly, such as “Tax cuts for the rich,” Bush lied, millions died,” and the like.
• Go on the offensive instead of waiting to react.
• Define their cause as defending the underdog and their opponents as oppressors.
• Make their opponents appear scary while they offer hope.
With this as an introduction, I will begin a series based on David Horowitz’ booklet, Rules for Revolution. It will give you the ammunition you will need to effectively confront the radical left and better understand who Barack Obama really is and what he really believes. Prepare to be shocked and hopefully spurred to take action to defend America from the greatest internal threat she has ever faced.
