Understanding the Radical Left is imperative for our survival as a nation.
IT’S WORTH CONSIDERING
This post is a summary of some earlier articles, but considering the ever-widening gap between the political left and right, it’s time for a reminder so we can understand what’s really going on. 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 (thru climate change) is simply another way to seize and keep power. They see the world as consisting of “haves” and “have-nots” and they are determined to redistribute the wealth to make everyone equal (equally powerless) (with all the power going to them). 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.
Without understanding how they think, conservatives will become easy prey. Our problem is that we (on the right) 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, those on the right keep giving them the benefit of the doubt.
The leftists are following the Alinsky model which says that you must not paint yourself into a corner by clearly defining your goals and agenda. You must be “political relativists.” In Alinsky’s mind, the revolutionary’s purpose was to undermine the system and see what happens. The goal was to transfer power from the “haves” to the “have-nots,” but the methods had to remain flexible, constantly changing as the establishment reacts. Just watch how Barack Obama and Hillary react to their numerous scandals and you’ll see this principle in living color.
Alinsky also shaped the future of the civil rights movement after the death of Martin Luther King. If you’ve ever wondered how the whole civil rights movement took such a dramatic turn, promoting the “victim mentality” so prevalent in the black community, it was all part of a carefully orchestrated strategy. Perhaps the first public display of Alinsky’s approach was when racial unrest erupted in Rochester, New York after King’s death. Alinsky was called in by activists to pressure Eastman-Kodak to hire more blacks. The racial extortion that won the day became the standard of the entire civil rights movement under the leadership of the “victim mentality” kings, Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton.
“The issue is never the issue. The issue is always the revolution.”
What all this means is that the apparent cause- oppression of blacks, women’s rights, voter suppression or whatever- is never the real cause. It is merely a smoke screen to advance the real cause which is the accumulation of power to make the revolution.
Alinsky disciples are bound by no rules, no planned strategy, and no worthy principles. They remain flexible and opportunistic and will say anything, do anything, and pretend to be anything if it advances their quest for influence, money, and power. Those on the far left see “democracy” as getting those who are in, out, and using the poor and “oppressed” as a battering ram to bring down the system. Lately, the term “low information voter” has been used to describe the mass of loyal supporters that will follow Obama anywhere. It is simply the result of years of preparation by “community organizers.”
These leftists have no interest in reforming the system, only destroying it by using whatever means are necessary (Obama’s radical transformation). They have been successful largely because conservatives refuse to believe that a fellow American could possibly desire America’s destruction and be willing to do or say anything to bring it about. When radicals talk about justice, equality, and democracy, conservatives take the bait, giving the radicals the benefit of the doubt to their own destruction. So, here we are watching the charade before our very eyes.
AS I SEE IT
According to Lenin (Vladimir, not John), the purpose of a political argument is not to refute your opponent. It is to wipe him off the face of the earth. For Alinsky’s followers, including his greatest disciple, Barack Obama, the purpose has not changed. They’re on a mission of destruction, a little here, a little there, until eventually, the whole house collapses. You must be willing to use any weapon, any tactic, and be ready to align with any group at any time if is advances the cause – destruction of the present system.
To pull this off, you must carefully camouflage your radical goals. You must make people believe that you are working within the system and trying to improve it. If you’ve got the ability to lie with a straight face and give inspiring speeches, you’ve greatly increased your chances of success. Where people understand that socialism destroys freedom, you must dress it up as something else-something they don’t really understand, but sounds noble. You must sell it as “progressivism,” “economic democracy,” or “social justice.”
In the minds of the radicals, they are always at war and they will do whatever it takes to keep their opponents from entering the war. Make your opponents think you desire the same things they do. Make them think the political arguing is really about the best methods to accomplish their shared goals. This is why so many Republicans are so fed up with their elected representatives who appear to be either clueless or complicit. Such is the state of American politics.
