Obama the radical Communist 13

It was the worst mistake in the history of the USA – the election of a dedicated Communist to the presidency. Barack Hussein Obama, well in his forties but still besotted with his adolescent Communist ideology, who associated only with Marxists, Communist revolutionaries and terrorists – and the odd Chicago crook –  was actually elected to the office of president. It’s the stuff of nightmares, but as we all know, and to the wonder and dismay of half the world, it actually happened. America is suffering ever more acutely from the consequences of that amazing error of judgment by tens of millions of voters.

This is from Investor’s Business Daily:

The late [Saul] Alinsky is the father of community organizing and the author of the far-left bible “Rules for Radicals.”

Obama first learned Alinsky’s rules in the 1980s, when Alinskyite radicals with the Chicago-based Alinsky group Gamaliel Foundation recruited, hired, trained and paid him as a community organizer in South Side Chicago. (Gamaliel’s website expressly states it grew out of the Alinsky movement.)

In 1988, Obama … wrote a chapter for the book “After Alinsky: Community Organizing in Illinois,” in which he lamented organizers’ “lack of power” in implementing change.

Gamaliel board member John McKnight, a hard-core student of Alinsky, penned a letter for Obama to help him get into Harvard Law School.

Just think about the implications of that: a letter from a radical Communist helps to get an applicant into Harvard Law School!

Obama took a break from his Harvard studies to travel to Los Angeles for eight days of intense training at Alinsky’s Industrial Areas Foundation …

In turn, he trained other community organizers in Alinsky agitation tactics.

“Community organizing” means organizing for Communist revolutionary agitation.

Obama also taught Alinsky’s “Power Analysis” methods at the University of Chicago.

During the presidential campaign, Obama hired one of his Gamaliel mentors, Mike Kruglik, to train young campaign workers in Alinsky tactics at “Camp Obama,” a school set up at Obama headquarters in Chicago. The tactics helped Obama capture the youth vote like no other president before him.

Power would no longer be an issue, as Obama infiltrated the highest echelon of the political establishment — the White House — fulfilling Alinsky’s vision of a new “vanguard” of coat-and-tie radicals who “work inside the system” to change the system.

After the election, his other Gamaliel mentor, Jerry Kellman (who hired him and whose identity Obama disguised in his memoir), helped the Obama administration establish Organizing for America, which mobilizes young supporters to agitate for Obama’s legislative agenda using “Rules for Radicals.”

Obama’s favorite rule is No. 13: “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it and polarize it.” You see that in his attacks on “fat cat bankers,” “greedy health insurers” and “millionaires and billionaires.” He also readily applies Alinsky’s fifth rule of “ridiculing” the opposition.

“Obama learned his lesson well,” said [Saul Alinsky’s son] David Alinsky … “I am proud to see that my father’s model for organizing is being applied successfully beyond local community organizing.”

“Beyond local community organizing”. That must be the understatement of all time.

    None of you have any idea of what the word communism means. Perhaps you should do some research on the subject before wailing about the dangers of radical communists. Furthermore, if you did understand what communists actually stood for, all you would have to do is glance at Obama’s policies to clearly understand that he is in no way shape or form a communist.

      Please, clever dick, tell us what communism is. I’ve only written a very few books about it and experienced only four miserable communist countries, so I’m sure I have something more to learn about its meaning. Did Frank Marshall Davis the member of the US Communist Party who was Obama’s mentor, and Saul Alinsky the American theorist of communism who invented “community organizing” of the kind Obama practiced, and all those Marxist professors Obama says in his autobiography that he chose to listen to in his student days, not persuade him to communism? Amazing! I wait to hear your interpretation of what communism is and how Obama rejects it.

    • Dick – perhaps YOU should do some research into the roots of European socialisms. Communist goals, while never yet successfully realized, seek to use socialism as their vehicle. Fortunately there are still enough people in the US who have their eyes open to the danger, and personal arsenals in the basement, that O’bama and other radical lefties will not get their programs off the ground. BTW before you presume what others do or do not know, you might try requesting clarification rather that leaping to judgement. A president who personally harbors communist/socialist leanings obviously must hide is hand making gradual in-roads.

      Lets not be disengenuous Dick. When we speak of Communism, what we are really speaking of is a vector that seeks to move towards and increasingly extreme socialism. The Soviet Union was an extreme socialism, not truly communism as envisioned by Marx. It is generally understood that this is what we are talking about… not some nation-wide Hippie commune, or unrealistic fantasy of society without government.

      The concern is that if financially unsupportable socialist programs wind up bankrupting the country, it will somehow be blamed on capitalism and used as an excuse fully set the socialist hooks in.

    “Worst mistake” and “nightmare” are also understatements.  To think that Obama is simply incompetent or an empty suit has already proved to be a disasterous mistake.  To look at these facts about his background and write it off as right wing bias, one has to be in a deliberate, self induced state of denial of reality.  

    • I’m sure Obama palled around with Communists to get into Harvard Law School, but he mostly seems to be about power lust like every other politician in history. Given that we now have three years of information about what he’s actually done with the office of President, ’empty suit’ seems most accurate.

      • Liz

        I’m not saying any of his ideas are original, but his empty suit has been filled with them, and he’s been busy attempting to impose them on the rest of us.  If only he’d just stay on the golf course…


    This article could be included in a little red book (i.e. GOP-style red) entitled “Quotations from the Ramblings of Glenn Beck”.

      You’re blind as well as mentally-challenged.  It would seem you inhaled something from a beaker and now you are only left with leftwing emotion…thought has been eradicated.  I’d like to pop you in the nose and show you what red really looks like…fool!

        What a clever retort!

    This piece makes the same, IMO opinion mistaken, assumption of a lot of other anti-Obama pieces, like  Dinesh D’Souza’s and Steve Sailers — you’re assuming Obama is about ANTHING.  He’s a very appealing guy who gives a great speech, which coming from a well-melanined dermis, seems to articulate a vision most Americans want. 

    But under it all, he’s a nothing. In Chicago, he followed Alinsky because he was the leader. Some day, we’ll learn who the power behind his throne is, but until then I don’t credit him with a single original thought or coherent policy of anything.

      You obviously suffer the same ailments as the fool NYPRPhD.  You see S__t, you smell S__t and you taste S__t and say this isn’t S__t. 
      It just isn’t worth communicating with a S__t thinker like you.  Whoops, correction…you haven’t the ability to think…merely thoughtless empty emotion.
