President Alinsky Threatens Americans with Rising ‘Social Tensions’

July 24th, 2013 - 1:32 pm

You can take the community organizer out of the South Side, but you can’t take the community organizer out of the community organizer.

Today, America heard threats from the increasingly predictable President Alinsky.

“The position of the middle class will erode further,” Mr. Obama said. “Inequality will continue to increase, money’s power will distort our politics even more. Social tensions will rise, as various groups fight to hold on to what they have, start blaming somebody else for why their position isn’t improving. That’s not the America we know.”

This is standard-fare Das Kapital by Karl Marx.  Obama doesn’t even attempt to disguise it, leaving out only the original author’s name.  Obama merely adds the threat of social tensions.

For that, thank speech co-author Saul Alinsky.

Alinsky saw social tensions as a necessary circumstance to effective community organizing. Without anger, without the have-nots blaming the haves, it is harder to accumulate power.  Alinsky considered the creation of social tensions, or the exploitation of them, as essential to move wealth and power from those who have it to those who don’t.

Once “social tensions” are stoked, all that is left is the tactical organization.

Compare how conversant President Obama is in the ominous language of the economically illiterate left with President Reagan’s faith in the economic power of American freedom.  Obama’s economic worldview flows from Marx and Alinsky, when the free-market oxygen of Reagan is so badly needed.  Instead of uplifting Americans, Obama threatens them.

Republicans must match Obama’s dark vision with something equally aggressive and directly confrontational.  One idea? Defund Obamacare instead of another in a series of phony House votes to repeal it.

The Founders gave the House the power of the purse for times like these.  Defund Obamacare and watch the economy accelerate overnight.

Unfortunately for now, it seems some in the GOP don’t understand their opponent.  Speaker John Boehner gravely misunderstands the situation if he truly believes Obama’s address was devoid of content — a mere “Easter egg with no candy in it.”

There was plenty of content in that speech, if you know what to listen for.  Boehner’s response might have worked during more civil times.  But with soaring debt and a new muscular federal government, sweet quips don’t cut it.

There's a reason that the richest of the rich have supported communism and socialism for the last 100 years. Once you make yours, the best way to maintain it is to pull up the ladder behind yourself. It also eliminates all potential up and coming competition through mass murder.

The biggest problem for the have nots in this country,is that all of "the haves" are armed to the teeth.

When the government stops deliving welfare and social security, or inflates the value out of existence, blue cities will burn to the ground, and the red ones will shoot looters dead.

How did someone with no demonstrable accomplishments go from a C-D student to State Senator (unopposed) to US Senator (unopposed) to President virtually unopposed. That's is what my parents called a Post Turtle. I call him a Sock Puppet. Someone put him there and moves his lips. the only question honest Americans should be asking themselves is who is the force behind the empty suit.

social tensions from disgruntled groups will increase-obviously they have and will continue as long as the D party can use them to keep power----- and yet the GOP has signed on to import more of these "groups"- and all of those will vote with the Obama base- GOP are not fighting for us but capitulating - (Other than a few who are even maligned by other GOP)

It's truly stunning given his past... ANY reporter would find his distorted promises of unifying America a bad joke..

He only knows how to divide people into select groups then goad them into hating each other.. His nasty vile remarks where he compared the GOP to hostage takers wasn't an off handed remark.. it was as scripted as his Travon Martin speech, sending two messages.. to his base, anyone who disagrees with me is racist.. to the opposition, I'm a bigot and white people, (even white Hispanics) are all racists who can only be forgiven if they knee and grovel everytime I bark.

There is NO unity.. because Obama is a dictatorial imperial @ss who wouldn't budge one inch, just demands the other side shut up.

Not in this democratic republic chump.. take Bullying Thug somewhere else..

We're pretty well versed in toppling tyrants.

Those who haven't been bought or dumbed down into peasanthood remember.

"There was plenty of content in that speech, if you know what to listen for."

Exactly. The speech definitely had a purpose: he and Michelle both have said they are playing the long game. They intend a state of permanent social tension, anger and ignorance so that the left can secure its permanent dominance in power. Divide and conquer.

The GOP understands their opponent perfectly well. The thing most threatening to the GOP is not the Democrat party or the statist agenda. It is the Tea Party movement. They aren't focused on Obama because they are focused on survival. Look at the other side of the coin. Is destroying the Republican Party the primary aim of the Tea Party movement? Of course not. Because the survival of their country and the virtues it was founded on are their primary focus, not power.

Three incontrovertible truths that conservatives must fully embrace before they are able to break their mental chains and successfully engage the enemy:

1. Equality is Theft

2. Politics is Religion

3. Reality is Racist

I think a big mistake is being made when people believe that Obama must be personally confronted in order to halt the Marxist "revolution" his election entailed. He is but a mere spokesman, a pitchman, reading a script written for him by others. He is not and never has been in charge. In fact, he's so unconnected from what is taking place in this country that he's hardly aware of it. His election - and fraudulent re-election - activated all the Alinsky-ites who had been patiently treading water for years and decades within our system of government just waiting for the most electable stooge to appear and unleash them. This is why no one can get a handle on the massive corruption taking place; we don't have a president in the old sense - a CEO - we have a network of Marxists doing their work in the dark, hidden from the public, unaccountable and virtually unknown.

We can't get a handle on the corruption because we lack the tools. The tools should enable you to ask simple questions and get actionable answers back. Here's a few that nobody really can get quick answers on.
1. What governments have jurisdiction over where I live, work, and travel through?
2. What do these governments do?
3. Are any of these governments doing something unconstitutional?
4. Are any of these governments doing something that government simply should not be doing?
5. Are any of these governments doing something better done by the private sector?

5 questions and most can't even get 1 answered and all of them are more difficult to answer. It's why I'm working to build my own project, citizen intelligence. The management tools necessary to build effective oversight of government have been conceived and applied to other segments of the economy. We can apply them to the government.

The funny thing is that big chunks of the left don't even object to it. It's not perceived as threatening.

oh... like the wildly divisive and polarizing warmed over centuries old ideas the left drags around and trumpets as "intellectual"?

You people haven't had a new idea since Marx died..

and as often as you completely fail.. (Detroit).. you blame everyone else grab your cash and move on to the next hunting ground.. there has never been a time you tools HAVEN'T made things worse..


You people whine endlessly about the wide divisions in America, all the while Obama and every democrat with a microphone makes hysterical attacks against red state America..

You jackholes want unity, try for once acting like you aren't a completely clueless @ss.
