This is important. After all, it’s his ‘playbook’ they’ve been following for a very long time.
The leftist radical Saul Alinsky author of the handbook of subversion and rebellion, ‘Rules for Radicals‘ favored by leftists gave some advice to would-be revolutionaries that might have been used to foment the now-infamous events in Charlottesville.
In his book, ‘Rules For Revolution‘, conservative author, David Horowitz, explains how Alnisky’s tactics were used by Barack Obama’s adminstration to ‘fundamentally transform’ America.
It’s not just Barry that was using these tactics, but radical leftists — think Occupy Wall Street, and more recent headline-grabbing groups that use ‘any means necessary’.
These ‘activists’ on the left are determined to spark a ‘revolution’ and tear down existing institutions doing whatever is necessary to ensure that is the case.
Guided by Alinsky principles, post-Communist radicals are not idealists but Machiavellians. Their focus is on means rather than ends, and therefore they are not bound by organizational orthodoxies in the way their admired Marxist forebears were. Within the framework of their revolutionary agenda, they are flexible and opportunistic and will say anything (and pretend to be anything) to get what they want, which is resources and power.

Even disguising themselves as racists? Why not? They’ve done it before!
Take this anecdote quoted by Horowitz in an article from FrontPage Magazine in 2009:
College student activists in the 1960s and 1970s sought out Alinsky for advice about tactics and strategy. On one such occasion in the spring of 1972 at Tulane University’s annual week-long series of events featuring leading public figures, students asked Alinsky to help plan a protest of a scheduled speech by George Bush, then U.S. representative to the United Nations, a speech likely to be a defense of the Nixon Administration’s Vietnam War policies [Note: the Nixon Administration was then negotiating with the North Vietnamese communists to arrive at a peace agreement– DH] The students told Alinsky that they were thinking about picketing or disrupting Bush’s address. That’s the wrong approach, he rejoined — not very creative and besides, causing a disruption might get them thrown out of school. [Not likely — DH.]
“He told them, instead, to go hear the speech dressed up as members of the Ku Klux Klan, and whenever Bush said something in defense of the Vietnam War, they should cheer and wave placards, reading ‘The K.K.K. supports Bush.’ And that is what the students did with very successful, attention-getting results.

Fast forward to Charlottesville and the protest/counter-protest and the flag-toting Nazis.
Fascinating journalist, Michael Yon, has made this observation:
Does it look like it could be a set up?
To hold white supremacists views is absolutely disgusting.
To carry a Nazi flag and all that it represents is beyond vile.
There isn’t really much that is worse than that — except perhaps to deliberatley fake it to whip up a race war so that you can punish political opponents.
We’re not sure if that happened here, but some folks think that there were some fake white supremacists mixed in with the crowd of real ones.
While we’re on the topic:
One thing that increasingly unites men and women? We can both agree that Liberals are losing their ever-loving minds. Now there’s a shirt that says just that.
Conveniently available in Both Ladies…
AND Men’s versions.
Either Liberals just don’t get it, or they are sick in the head. Probably both. Think about it: They want to have all of the blessings that come with living in a capitalist society such as modern medicine and technology. But they believe in socialism, which stifles innovation and progress.
They want to be protected by the police and the military, but they attack and criticize the men and women who protect us. They call conservatives “racists,” but it’s their own identity politics that have created race problems in the first place. After all, Democrats were the party of slavery!
They attack hunters, but have no problem wearing leather shoes or owning cars with leather upholstery! And of course, they believe guns kill people. Not the people that pull the trigger.
Well, here’s a shirt that sums it perfectly. Liberalism is a… MENTAL DISORDER.
And the best part? This shirt is made in the USA, printed in the USA, on an American-Made t-shirt press!
Ladies, get yours here.
Bros, click here, instead.
Does your grandpa go off on paltry politicians, whether they be Democrats or Republicans? Does he get misty eyed when he talks about God and Country and America’s future? And have you ever heard him scream, ‘Awww … Hell no!’ when Rosie O’Donnell starts yapping on television? If you answered yes to one, or all of the above, then your gramps will love Doug Giles’ latest book, My Grandpa Is A Patriotic Badass.
Don’t be fooled by the title — this ain’t just for Grandpa.
The Snowflake Generation — and the rest of America — needs a good ol’ dose of ‘Grandpa wisdom’.
Especially if that Grandpa is Doug Giles.
You’ll love My Grandpa Is A Patriotic Badass just as much as Grandpa will.
