WTH #666: M.Obama Quotes Saul Alinsky in Campaign Speech
Gateway Pundit nailed her:
What to make of Michelle Obama's use the terms, "The world as it is" and "The world as it should be?" From whence do they originate? Try Chapter 2 of Saul Alinsky's book, Rules for Radicals.
"Barack stood up that day," talking about a visit to Chicago neighborhoods, "and spoke words that have stayed with me ever since. He talked about "The world as it is" and "The world as it should be..." And, "All of us driven by a simple belief that the world as it is just won't do - that we have an obligation to fight for the world as it should be."
Here's an excerpt from Chapter 2 of Saul Alinsky's book, Rules for Radicals:
"The means-and-ends moralists, constantly obsessed with the ethics of the means used by the Have-Nots against the Haves, should search themselves as to their real political position. In fact, they are passive -- but real -- allies of the Haves...The most unethical of all means is the non-use of any means... The standards of judgment must be rooted in the whys and wherefores of life as it is lived, the world as it is, not our wished-for fantasy of the world as it should be."
Dan Reihl writes that although Gateway Pundit points out that Michelle Obama quoted concepts from Rules for Radicals in her speech last night and suggests she heard it in church, more likely, it was Barack Obama that came up with it due to the individual who started him off in his activist pursuits - Jerry Kellman, an organizer working on Chicago's far South Side.
Kellman was an Alinsky protege.
After college Obama moved to Chicago to be part of the Jerry Kellman organization as a community organizer. [Kellman was a Saul Alinsky protege.] Among the primary goals of Alinsky was radical socialism and redistribution of wealth. Alinsky taught his proteges to "HIDE" their true goals by any means necessary. Lying was fine. The objective of Alinsky and Kellman was to turn people against the white establishment.
Do the Obamas really think that all America is as blind as the Obamanauts and starry-eyed Democrats at the convention so as to not see through the Obama's 'touchy-feely, God and country' charade - aware of their Marxist agenda and what they are really saying?
