The Left’s playbook: Satanist Saul Alinsky’s 13 rules for political warfare

Barack Obama began his political career by being a “community organizer” in Chicago. After that, his political rise was dizzying — from the Illinois state legislature to the U.S. Senate, and then to the White House.

Saul Alinsky

Saul Alinsky (1909-1972), the son of Russian Jewish immigrants, wrote the book on community organizing and, as such, is the guru of all “community organizers” — a deceptively innocuous term for what Marxists used to call “agitprop” or agitators-propagandists.

Alinsky was not the first to realize that successful Marxist revolutions depend on organizational prowess, but he was the first to write a “how to” organizational manual for aspiring Marxist revolutionaries in the United States — the now famous Rules for Radicals: A Pragmatic Primer for Realistic Radicals (1971).

Alinsky’s ideas have been used by the Left in inner cities and college campuses. Hillary Clinton’s senior thesis at Wellesley College was on Alinsky. So influential is Alinsky that Time magazine once wrote that “American democracy is being altered by Alinsky’s ideas.” Even conservative author William F. Buckley said Alinsky was “very close to being an organizational genius.”

Alinsky biographer Sanford Horwitt claims that not only did Obama follow Alinsky’s teachings as a Chicago-based community organizer, Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign was influenced by those teachings.

Alinsky’s rules are also wielded by Internet trolls. Conservatives, therefore, should thoroughly acquaint ourselves with those rules, so that we can quickly recognize an Alinskyite, identify the tactic s/he is using against us and, even better, use those tactics against them. Here’s a brief summary of the rules (h/t The Union News):

Alinsky’s 13 Rules for the Left:

1. Power is not only what you have but what the enemy thinks you have.

2. Never go outside the experience of your people.

3. Whenever possible, go outside of the experience of the enemy.

4. Make the enemy live up to their own book of rules.

5. Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.

6. A good tactic is one that your people enjoy.

7. A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag.

8. Keep the pressure on with different tactics and actions, and utilize all events of the period for your purpose.

9. The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself.

10. The major premise for tactics is the development of operations that will maintain a constant pressure upon the opposition.

11. If you push a negative hard and deep enough, it will break through into its counterside.

12. The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative.

13. Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.

My experience from 5 years of daily blogging is that the trolls who come onto FOTM typically resort to Alinsky Rules #4 and #5.

Christians must watch out for #4. Leftist trolls deploy it against Christians by invoking OUT OF CONTEXT Jesus’ injunction to “judge not,” as if Christ our Lord actually means for us not to distinguish right from wrong. On the contrary, He abhors the “lukewarm” — the fence-sitters who stand for nothing, being neither hot nor cold. (See “Why we must admonish the wicked“)

It should give us pause to know that Alinsky was an admirer of Lucifer — the rebel angel so full of pride that he thought himself to be “as God,” who Jesus said “fell as lightning” and so became Satan. To begin with, Alinsky dedicated his book, Rules for Radicals, to Lucifer, aka the Devil:

There’s more.

Alinsky so admired Lucifer he wanted to join Satan in Hell.

In 1972, Playboy magazine did an interview with Saul Alinsky. Toward the end of the long interview, Alinsky was asked about death and the afterlife. Although Alinsky professed agnosticism about the existence of God, he said he was brought up by orthodox Jews and considered himself to be a devout Jew until the age of 12, after which he “went through some pretty rapid withdrawal symptoms and kicked the habit.” Nevertheless, he told Playboy, “But I’ll tell you one thing about religious identity, whenever anyone asks me my religion, I always say—and always will say— Jewish.”

The Playboy interviewer then asked Alinsky: “Do you believe in any kind of afterlife?” This was Alinsky’s response:

“ALINSKY: Sometimes it seems to me that the question people should ask is not “Is there life after death?” but “Is there life after birth?” I don’t know whether there’s anything after this or not. I haven’t seen the evidence one way or the other and I don’t think anybody else has either. But I do know that man’s obsession with the question comes out of his stubborn refusal to face up to his own mortality. Let’s say that if there is an afterlife, and I have anything to say about it, I will unreservedly choose to go to hell.

PLAYBOY: Why?

ALINSKY: Hell would be heaven for me. All my life I’ve been with the have-nots. Over here, if you’re a have-not, you’re short of dough. If you’re a have-not in hell, you’re short of virtue. Once I get into hell, I’ll start organizing the have-nots over there.

PLAYBOY: Why them?

ALINSKY: They’re my kind of people.

Saul Alinsky died a few months after the interview, on June 12, 1972, and no doubt got his wish. See also:

  8. Alinsky appears to have been thoroughly demon-possessed in intellect, brilliant in Satan’s way. Satan’s Slaves are manifesting now, and clergy whose voices need to be heard calling for repentance of our nation are either silent or promoting irrelevant, if not irreverent, ideas. Thanks to recent postings of Dr. Eowyn and others, Luciferians are being revealed, as the Satanists go about with more arrogance every day The attacks come from everywhere possible, not just in economics, not just in government, not just in sexual practices, not just in health…they come from everywhere. We need to do what we can body, soul, and spirit, but first we need what most reading this message know, prayer. Our nation must call on the one the United States rejected, and, I believe, Russia has returned to.
    We may believe that Alinsky and other scruffy people are the only Luciferians. “Illuminists” Madam Blavatsky and Alice Bailey had a publishing house named after Lucifer, and it was bought out by Rockefeller to be the printer for the Council on Foreign Relations. There were name changes, the printer being called “Lucis Trust”, and now changed the something like “Council on Foreign Relations Publishing.” The battle is underway, and this life is but the opening salvo of a war to continue beyond it. Rev./Apocalypse 20: 4 tells of the beheaded, growing in greater number today, but we must stay faithful and not become those in 20:8, “fearful and unbelieving” going to the lake of fire.
    Back to the character of weasels like Alinsky and his ilk. As you read their writings, you will find no instruction or exhortation on being productive, honest, and industrious to benefit society. You will simply be told how to go about and take from those who are. This is done with Satan’s weapons, lies, betrayal, thievery, and killing to mention a few of them.

        I agree with you. Obama and the leftists have huge success because most Americans don’t think and are too lazy to counteract these online devils. Here, following, is an clear example how they operate. Please allow me to copy and paste a submitted comment and the Moralmatters author’s reply to that comment.

        Joel –

        I know who you are and most of the time I don’t approve (publish) your comments. But this time I will, for purposes of highlighting how those in (decadent) denial, will erroneously reason.

        Your comment is in keeping with “Obamabot” style (aka Obamabot apologists). Or, I could also say, “‘Alinsky’-style commie sorts.

        For those reading this “Joel Lillo” comment and the Moralmatters response to it, please reference the excellent online article by Dr. Eowyn, who exposes Alinsky and those who follow in his unsavory soul destroying footsteps:

        Joel – I know that you are academically educated. Yet, your comment lacks life-long (worth-while) education. Perhaps, the reason for your darkness, is that you lack moral honesty You argue (contend) against sound rules of logic. You insidiously (but not so subtly) “generalize.” But, you do that illogical dishonest “dirty” in form of 2 questions, then follow-up with the usual “‘Alinsky’-type” ridicule. For others, you might get-away with your online propaganda. For Moralmatters, it doesn’t wash or fly. The (illogical) ridicule gets old.

        Joel – You need to get a life. I believe that you’ve sold your priceless soul to the culture’s political correctness and multicultural hirelings!

  21. Some of you commenters use the “left-right” paradigm deception.There is no “left” or “right” in truth.They both and all work for the Luciferian ideology towards the “New World Order” and the Antichrist.

    It is all the Hegelian Dialectic of, Problem (republicans), Reaction (democrats) and the resulting conflict = Solution.The Solution was the Luciferian agenda from the beginning.It is another Distraction created for the masses of sheeple.
    It is also another tactic of “divide and conquer”.
    Or put another way, Thesis, Antithesis and finally Synthesis.
    This is one of the MANY, many tactics that the god of this world system uses, through his children for….manipulation, intimidation, deception and finally-CONTROL and DOMINATION.
    The “left-right” deception is a lie.
