President Obama is an Alinskyite.
That assertion is not an epithet – well, not primarily. True, I would not describe someone I admired as an “Alinskyite.” Saul Alinsky was a loathsome figure – a radical statist who whose toxic brew of thoroughgoing deceit and brass-knuckles extortion (“direct action”) has become a part of mainstream politics. But in tying the president to the seminal community organizer whose theories and tactics so influenced him, my purpose is more to decode than to insult him.
Of course, calling Obama an “Alinskyite” draws cataracts of condemnation from the Democrat-media complex – for the same reason that Muslim Brotherhood shrieks of “Islamophobe!” inevitably follow any reasoned, scripturally based discussion of Islamic supremacism. People who advance their agendas in dishonesty and stealth can’t afford to have critics shine a light on them. The best diversion is to smear the critic as racist and phobic – or as Alinsky, a master of the game, put it, “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.”
Well, this week Alinsky did amnesty, so let’s not be diverted.
