Community Organizing at its Ugly Worst! President Obama, Call Off Your Thugs!

The Washington Times has an interesting article this morning, Health reformers targeting 'enemies.' The very first paragraph reads: "The plan for a series of grass-roots demonstrations Tuesday to promote President Obama's health care agenda calls for tightly scripted events and an 'escalation' of efforts against 'enemies' of reform."

Note the tactics straight out of the Alinsky playbook: 1) identify an enemy, 2) freeze him, 3) choose a tactic your mob [okay, Alinsky doesn't call his lackeys a mob] will enjoy. [Union thugs enjoy "escalating" against their opponents, especially if they can do it with steel-tipped boots and brass knuckles.]

The article goes on, "The document, a copy of which was obtained by The Washington Times, details specific talking points, tactics, props and strategies to stage the protests. It lists goals that include action that 'mobilizes our base by animating existing anger about private insurers.' The HCAN field plan dictates that each protest will include a minimum of 30 participants, target only health care insurers CIGNA, WellPoint and United Health Care and showcase what it calls 'victims,' or people who have either lost insurance, can't afford it or were denied coverage because of pre-existing medical conditions....The field plan says the protests should attract media coverage that 'creates villains or enemies that serve as a contrast with our side; validates the need for affordability and the public health insurance option; [and] forces the other side to respond.'"

The organizers are getting more and more transparent and their tactics are no longer a mystery. Honest liberals need to wake up to the fact that they are nothing but pawns on a chessboard being used by unscrupulous politicians for their own purpose. The immoral men and women of both parties do it, liberals just do it more effectively. One big difference -- the mainstream media goes after Republicans, remember Richard Nixon and his "enemies" list? You won't read about this in the New York Times. They stopped being journalists years ago and are nothing but shills for liberal politicians.

One other thought - When you consider that Obama promised "hope" and "change," this escalation of ugly mafia-style tactics is shocking. America, you voted to put a community-organizer-in-chief in the White House. He's running his administration according to Alinsky's Rules for Radicals and turning the country into a banana republic. Push back with prayer, letters to the editor, support for real conservatives, and join the tea party movement.

Don't let the organizers win by default. As Edmund Burke said, "The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for enough good men to do nothing."

Obama learned Alinsky's lessons well, according to Alinsky's son David. I have to hand it to David Alinsky - he's right on that.
