Obama recruiting an army of 'Alinskyite' community organizers to ensure his reelectionTopics: Political News and commentaries
Any way you cut it, if you're a law-abiding, freedom-loving, financially and socially responsible American ... just about everything the Obama's stand for, and do, is downright scary.
Andrew Malcolm writes at IBD:
President Obama's election campaign is recruiting an army of determined community organizers to walk the streets of the nation's cities this summer and autumn in the footsteps of a young Chicago community organizer named Barack Obama.Read the rest here.
Recruits would gather other volunteers, register new voters, run phone banks and campaign events and knock on millions of doors to track voters' preferences and encourage supporters of the president's reelection.
The massive, cross-country organization is called Obama Fellowships. It involves many thousands of unpaid volunteers, both full- and part-time with separate fellowships for the summer and the fall leading up to the Nov. 6 presidential election.
The fellows' duties will include recruiting and training thousands of other volunteers to penetrate neighborhoods, run phone banks, organize and monitor campaign events and go door-to-door talking with voters, soliciting support for the Democrat and noting residents' political sympathies.
In a recent plea sent to millions of existing Obama supporters, Michelle Obama says: "I'm writing because Barack needs you out there this summer."
She warns that "there will be difficult days" as they "fight for progress" and "help more people make their voices heard."
The first lady says: "It's an amazing experience -- one that could change your life while shaping this country for decades to come."
Michelle is right about them possibly 'changing their life while shaping this country for decades to come.' Just like House Speaker John Boehner says, four more years of Barack is likely to bring about the end of America as we know it. His policies are turning America in a direction that we are likely to never recover from.
As for who's paying for all this, like a commenter at the IBD piece aptly points out, most of these "community organizers" come from grant-funded non-profits or labor unions. This has been the financial backbone of the Democratic Party for years -- and its one of the great money-laundering schemes in modern history. Clearly, the Obama's have never traveled very far from ACORN.
If I didn't know better I'd think I just read a plan for propaganda and agitation and organizing political 'struggles' right out of the 1921 Guidelines on the Organizational Structure of Communist Parties. But of course Michelle and Barack learned their trade-craft from a more recent Marxist - Saul Alinsky. Just like John Fund says, It's Still the Alinsky Playbook!
I'm reminded that Dr. Thomas Sowell, the eminent Stanford University sociologist, offers this assessment of what community organizers actually do:
"For 'community organizers' ... racial resentments are a stock in trade. ... What does a community organizer do? What he does not do is organize a community. What he organizes are the resentments and paranoia within a community, directing those feelings against other communities, from whom either benefits or revenge are to be gotten, using whatever rhetoric or tactics will accomplish that purpose."Related reading: Profile Of Barack Obama, From Birth Through Election Day 2008.
