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:

It is kind of a poetic justice, BO hates Israel and it’s people, but he devotes his life living the rules written by a Jewish man.

It never fails to disturb me that someone WANTS to go to Hell… that is completely and utterly sad.

Something happened to this poor male around the age of 12 that burned him deep to his soul, where he lost the desire to be with God. Sounds like the devil’s work. I pity him and all who choose to follow his wretched and divisive teachings. Be careful what you wish for…

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,… Read more »

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,… Read more »

Saul Alinski’s Legacy is alive and well & spiraling at warp speed through BHO and ‘Killary’. Just a year and a half since you posted this article Dr. Eowyn and we have EVIL incarnate via the Planned Parenthood Debacle and the Supreme Court Ruling on Gay Marriage and even the unveiling of Satan Himself!https://thedailybanter.com/2015/07/the-unveiling-of-the-satanic-temples-monument-was-everything-you-hoped-it-would-be/

When you believe in God you don’t need a religion. God and your relationship with God is as unique as your fingerprint. Upon Relizing that you can begin to understand God as only you can. No fiduciary require. You don’t have to look for God God will find you.

Alinsky be c a me an enemy of Judaism and cast it aside when he embraced Lucifer and all who followed the bright morning star. H e wants to spend eternity with them in the place described in Isaiah 14: 10-23. Yes, Judaism tells us of afterlife; read Psalm 23, last verse. Where would a sane person want to spend eternity, in the house of the Lord or Lucifer’s pit?
