I have written extensively about Obama's connections to the far left radicals that seek to bring down this country and turn into some kind of communist utopia. I guess they don't know communism doesn't work, just look how big a failure it has been where it has been tried. James Simpson has a fantastic piece that connects even more of the dots than I ever have with extensive links and research.
Despite the mass media news blackout, a series of books, talk radio and the blogosphere have managed to expose Barack Obama's connections to his radical mentors -- Weather Underground bombers William Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, Communist Party member Frank Marshall Davis and others. David Horowitz and his Discover the Networks.org have also contributed a wealth of information and have noted Obama's radical connections since the beginning.Yet, no one to my knowledge has yet connected all the dots between Barack Obama and the Radical Left. When seen together, the influences on Obama's life comprise a who's who of the radical leftist movement, and it becomes painfully apparent that not only is Obama a willing participant in that movement, he has spent most of his adult life deeply immersed in it.But even this doesn't fully describe the extreme nature of this candidate. He can be tied directly to a malevolent overarching strategy that has motivated many, if not all, of the most destructive radical leftist organizations in the United States since the 1960s.
He then goes on to tie all of these groups and individuals together in a neat bundle for us to consume and Barack Obama is their man. He is simply the most radically far left candidate that that a major Party has ever put forward, a committed communist redistributionist. They play by the "Rules For Radicals" playbook of Saul Alinsky and not just him but now the entire Democrat Party and their minions in the MSM.
Just like this current financial crisis is largely manufactured by Democrat policies and pushed by the press, note the eight years of gloom and doom reporting we've had from the MSM since Bush took over despite a growing economy. They must make people feel so helpless and full of despair for them to accept the radical changes to socialism they want to impose on society. Simpson should have included this quote from Alinsky in his piece.
"There's another reason for working inside the system. Dostoevski said that taking a new step is what people fear most. Any revolutionary change must be preceded by a passive, affirmative, non-challenging attitude toward change among the mass of our people. They must feel so frustrated, so defeated, so lost, so futureless in the prevailing system that they are willing to let go of the past and change the future. This acceptance is the reformation essential to any revolution. To bring on this reformation requires that the organizer work inside the system, among not only the middle class but the 40 per cent of American families - more than seventy million people - whose income range from $5,000 to $10,000 a year [in 1971]. They cannot be dismissed by labeling them blue collar or hard hat. They will not continue to be relatively passive and slightly challenging. If we fail to communicate with them, if we don't encourage them to form alliances with us, they will move to the right. Maybe they will anyway, but let's not let it happen by default."
Community organizer means communist and that is what Obama wanted to be but then learned that the best way was to get elected to office and to work within the system, just like Bill Ayers. Ayers does it through the education system, Obama through the political system.If you take a close look at how Obama campaigns you will see this strategy, lay out a doom and gloom picture, demonize the other party as the cause, and then claim to be the only one that can solve it with all kinds of government programs that won't work but only make things worse in a vicious circle as Simpson explains in detail. What I will never understand is how Americans can think the Party that created all these problems, the Democrats, are better suited to fix them. It's like rehiring the electrician who's faulty wiring burned down your house to wire the new one, insane.
Update:I might as well tag this McCain ad on to this post, via the Patriot Room.
And a couple post from Gateway Pundit on Obama's brownshirt truth squads, here and here.
