Time to Cheer? The Alinsky Coalition is breaking apart (Part One)

Written by Allan Erickson on May 18, 2014

Unlike the polar ice cap, the Alinsky Coalition appears to be breaking up.  When Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi appear on the verge of stroke, incapable of pronunciation, it can’t be good for the Jackass Party.  When Hillary distances herself, and Democrats run from ObamaCare, it’s obvious there’s not much hail for the chief.  The radicalized Democrat Party seems to be imploding and exploding at the same time, fearing a loss of the Senate in November.

Just what is the Alinsky Coalition?  Well, the short answer: it’s the modern Democrat Party–a collection of political groups embracing far left ideologies, employing these tactics to destroy traditional Americanism–outright lies, revisionist history, ridicule, federal domination of education and media, propaganda, infiltration, pretend patriotism, atheism,  installation of a new form of fascism-communism combining collectivism and corporate/government coordination.  

It is clear the Democrat Party has been dominated by the Far Left for many years, culminating in the election of Barack Obama, a serious disciple of Alinsky, a radical Marxist-Leninist who was devoted to the destruction of capitalism and the fundamental transformation of America. Armed with a compliant mass media and billions upon billions of dollars, the Alinsky Coalition has managed to centralize power and move America rapidly toward totalitarianism.   The basic list of political groups comprising the Alinsky Coalition:
>labor unions
>radicals in universities and graduate schools starting in the 60s
>Black, Hispanic liberation movements
>communists, socialists
>starry-eyed youth
>homosexual groups
>women’s liberation groups
>atheists, anarchists

These groups share a focus: to attack traditional American values using their main weapon, ridicule.  Anyone who opposes them is immediately and consistently demonized in one of several ways:
>Capitalist Pig!

So what evidence do we have that the Alinsky Coalition is beginning the break apart?
Exhibit One:  Black Pastor Coalition files brief in support of Traditional Marriage

It is becoming very difficult to convince all the associated Alinsky groups that it is simply a matter of “us against them” when the majority of Black people support traditional marriage, rejecting the idea marriage should be redefined by the whim of a secular minority.  Will they start calling traditional Blacks “homophobes”?  They already have, just as they’ve attacked conservative Black leaders as “Uncle Toms”.

The first Black president promotes homosexuality.  He cannot avoid the blow back from the Black majority.  Thus, the Alinsky Coalition splits, one segment attacking another.  Homosexuals, angry with traditionalists in the Black community, attack them, even as some Blacks accuse homosexuals of being racists.

Hispanics–generally traditionalists when it comes to family matters–are not huge allies in the push for same sex marriage, or abortion.  More splits and splintering.
Exhibit Two:  Abortion and Black Genocide
The founder of Planned Parenthood, part of the Alinsky Coalition, was an actual racist.  In 1922 Margaret Sanger wrote: “We don’t want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population . . . “ Source: Woman, Morality, and Birth Control. New York: New York Publishing Company, 1922. Page 12.

Obama, the most prolific and radical pro-abortion president, and his political party, are destroying Black babies at such a rate as to render Blacks the only declining population in America.  Some say at present abortion rates, Blacks could face extinction in America in only a few decades. As this reality comes into focus for more and more people, the Alinsky Coalition breaks apart in more ways, even faster.

It is no secret young voters are increasingly opposed to abortion.  They know life in the womb is human, and human beings have unalienable rights. They know abortion is murder.  They know abortion is a very profitable business.  Young people’s standing opposed to the abortion industry and its allies promises more fracturing of the Alinsky Coalition.

Exhibit Three:  Unions increasingly oppose Obama on trade, Keystone, ObamaCare

Union membership is way down.  Union influence is way down.  Employment is way down.  Naturally, if you prevent employment opportunities, discourage investment with regulation, and make healthcare expensive, as Obama has accomplished on every front, then the backlash from union members is loud and continuous, and will influence elections.
