Castro, Chavez, Alinsky and AyersObamaâ€™s Peeps!
By JB Williams Saturday, April 18, 2009
A few weeks ago, the Obama administration made it clear to the world, that they do not consider people like Bin Laden, or organizations like Al Qaeda, Hezbollah, Islamic Jihad or Hamas, to be â€œterroristsâ€ and went so far as to rename the international â€œwar on terror,â€ the â€œoverseas contingency operation,â€ so as not to further offend any of these folks.
Then, his Department of Homeland Security issued a new â€œterror reportâ€ redefining â€œterroristsâ€ to include legal American citizens openly opposed to illegal immigration, abortion, socialism, and people who trample on their First, Second, Ninth and Tenth Amendment Rights, aka, â€œrightwing extremists.â€ The Founders were â€œDomestic Terroristsâ€ According to Obamaâ€™s DHS
Now, Obama Seeks Equal Partnerships in Hemisphere, namely, with Castroâ€™s Communist Cuba and Communist thug Hugo Chavez in Venezuela, both of whom despise everything America is or ever wasâ€¦ and always will.
Unless of course, Obama is successful in his massive effort to reduce the United States to â€œequalâ€ status with third world communist dictatorships, in which case, he will most certainly be a hero to folks like Chavez and Castro.
Over a million American taxpayers, of all political stripes and walks of life, took to American streets to protest the direction of the new administration and its efforts to reduce America to equal third world status, economically, militarily, in every way possible. The Obama administration belittled and ridiculed the historic eventsâ€¦
Obama was not only elected under his political idolâ€™s Rules for Radicals, he governs by these rules.
Saul Alinskyâ€™s 1971 book Rules for Radicals, provides a collection of rules to guide the process. But he emphasizes these rules must be translated into real-life tactics that are fluid and responsive to the situation at hand.
1. â€œPower is not only what you have, but what the enemy thinks you have.â€
2. â€œNever go outside the expertise of your people. When an action or tactic is outside the experience of the people, the result is confusion, fear and retreat....â€
3. â€œWhenever possible, go outside the expertise of the enemy. Look for ways to increase insecurity, anxiety and uncertainty.
4. â€œMake the enemy live up to its own book of rules. You can kill them with this, for they can no more obey their own rules than the Christian church can live up to Christianity.â€
5. â€œRidicule is manâ€™s most potent weapon. It is almost impossible to counteract ridicule. Also it infuriates the opposition, which then reacts to your advantage.â€
6. â€œA good tactic is one your people enjoy.â€
7. â€œA tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag. Man can sustain militant interest in any issue for only a limited time....â€
8. â€œKeep the pressure on, with different tactics and actions, and utilize all events of the period for your purpose.â€
9. â€œThe threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself.â€
10. â€œThe 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.â€
11. â€œIf you push a negative hard and deep enough, it will break through into its countersideâ€¦ every positive has its negative.â€
12. â€œThe price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative.â€
13. Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it. In conflict tactics there are certain rules that [should be regarded] as universalities. One is that the opposition must be singled out as the target and â€˜frozen.â€™â€¦
The fact that Obamaâ€™s administration uses these tactics not against Islamic terrorists, or third world communist dictators, but instead, average freedom loving American citizens, is maybe the most telling fact concerning the man and his administration.
His belittling reaction to last weekâ€™s Tea Party events was not nearly as friendly, welcoming or inclusive, as his overtures to Iran, Chavez or Castro. Clearly agitated by any dissenting views or commentaries from those who oppose his â€œpopulistâ€ agenda, which is only popular with folks who donâ€™t like America much, the Rules for Radicals become increasingly, well, radicalâ€¦
Thatâ€™s because Obama indeed, has more in common with his peeps, Castro, Chavez, Alinsky and Ayers, than he has ever, or will ever, have in common with the average American. And like his mentors and heroes of the so-called â€œpeopleâ€™s movement,â€ (aka socialist or communist proletariat movement), he seeks to silence, personalize, isolate and polarize his enemies.
And when all else fails, Redirect... Faced with the prospect of headline reports of a million Americans protesting his agenda in the streets, he released Top Secret CIA interrogation memos from the previous administration in order to redirect public attention away from a growing public dissent against his administration, and back on to the Bush administration.
Although Obama immediately eliminated any possibility of charging CIA interrogators with any sort of crime, and even though the information contained in these memos had been public for some time, the left-leaning news media, which also ignored or belittled the Tea Parties, replaced news of widespread public anger over Socialist Obama policies with old news about CIA interrogation procedures. Procedures, that even Obama will authorize in the endâ€¦
One of the most common â€œRules for Radicalsâ€ tactics is to misdirect attention away from the agenda that might meet with resistance, and focus the public on something else, preferably, something that will capture their emotions.
This is why Obama never makes a public speech without reminding the audience that he is the â€œanti-Bush,â€ even though in matters of national security, he has yet to change a single Bush policy, other than to rename them and expose them, using the exploitation of previous Top Secret security measures to provide proof of a â€œmore transparentâ€ presidency.
But, the man willing to release secret Bush security memos while still at war with those same enemies, is still not willing to release his own birth or college records. He is making the Bush administration more transparent, but not his own.
This too is a common Rule for Radicals.
â€œThe 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.â€
In the first 90 days in power, the Obama administration has attacked... The free-market economy Free speech Religious expression Gun Rights Individual Liberty National sovereignty National Security agencies and policies Individual freedom Meanwhile, he has worked to â€œuniteâ€ America with anti-American communist Cuba, Venezuelan thug Hugo Chavez, Iran and Hamas, while redefining average American citizens and US soldiers who oppose all of it, as â€œdomestic terrorists.â€
This emboldens his faithful followers and ignites a firestorm of dissent from his enemies, the American people, whom he has already labeled for press and law enforcement benefit, as nutty rightwing extremists on the verge of becoming domestic terrorists.
CNN, reporter Susan Roesgen did her best to follow Obamanation talking points by labeling Tea Party protesters as Fox News stooges who didnâ€™t understand that Obama had given them a $400 tax creditâ€¦ as if that will make a dent in the economic chaos being created by leftwing nuts running wild in DC.
The left is at least ten steps ahead of the American right. The DHS report was not a shot across the bow of American conservatives. It was an effort to get out in front of impending headlines and establish for the record, that anyone who disagrees with Obama is a â€œracist,â€ â€šÃ„Ã¬ a â€œrightwing radical,â€ â€šÃ„Ã¬ or even a â€œdomestic terrorist,â€ in the spirit of Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh.
Itâ€™s much more than an info war. It sets the stage for future conflict, in which government officials at local law enforcement, the intelligence community and the Department of Defense will be on the lookout for dangerous subversives that wave the American flag, stand up for innocent life, cling to their bibles or guns, seek to uphold or defend the Constitution or God forbid, ask the Resident-in-thief for a copy of his birth or college records, which are clearly more sensitive than Top Secret national security memos.
In the end, itâ€™s all just a little too surreal The best place to hide such an agenda is right out in the open. In a way, the Obama administration is indeed transparent. One does not need much imagination to see what the administration believes in, or is up toâ€¦
Making friends with real terrorist thugs, while redefining the average American citizen as a terrorist, is quite transparent. Sharing $400 million in US taxpayer revenue with known terrorists in Hamas also sends an obvious message, both to terrorists and American citizens.
And Obamaâ€™s suggestion that the US Constitution is an outdated piece of paper full of â€œnegative Rightsâ€ that should be tossed away and replaced by a more progressive form of government better aligned with the ideas of Karl Marx and Bill Ayers, is also very telling.
The enemy can operate right out in the open if their agenda is so extreme that it is hard for the average citizen to believe. And that is exactly where America is today.
Despite literally hundreds of anti-American signals from the new administration, most Americans remain full of â€œhopeâ€ for â€œchange,â€ without ever grasping the very real forms of â€œchangeâ€ taking place right before their eyes.
Obamaâ€™s peeps are not average Americans. They are run of the mill anti-Americans, of both the foreign and domestic sorts. They are his birds of a feather, and together, they are indeed â€œmaking history.â€
When the average Americans catches up, and realizes that the anti-American changes underway in America are of the sort that foreign enemies of our state welcome them with open arms, they will have second thoughts about the changes they had once hoped forâ€¦
Until then, the dismantling of America, by Obama and his peeps, will continueâ€¦ Castro and Chavez even asked if there was anything they could do to help.... and Iâ€™m sure Obama will think of something.
