If you’ve been participating in forums or Facebook chatter or even just observing the media: everything is racist. Racist statues, racist police, racist President; why now? Though I believe most that are employing this tactic are far too shallow and uninformed to understand where this tactic came from, they are however following Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals. You may or may not be familiar with this book, but both Clinton and Obama are big fans and employed his teachings throughout their lives. No, I think most who use these tactics are simply following the example of those two who they hold in such high regard. If you recall, neither of these individuals would actually debate an issue as it’s too difficult to defend failed ideologies, but rather would mock anyone who held an opposing view.
Rules for Radicals Rule 5: “Ridicule is mans most potent weapon. It is almost impossible to counterattack ridicule. Also it infuriates the opposition, who then react to your advantage.”
So how do you feel when someone calls you a racist? Yes, and that’s exactly why they do it.
Rules for Radicals Rule 12: “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” It’s difficult to attack conservatives as a group, but to repeatedly attack, mock and ridicule the ‘leader’ is to delegitimize anyone who would support him. This is why they call Trump a racist when there is absolutely nothing to support their claim.
One final thought: according to Alinsky, “the first job of the organizer is to create the issue or problems.” Read that again, create the problem or issue – not solve it, create it. Think about that for a moment, why did civil war statues become an issue NOW? Why did standing for the National Anthem become an issue now? Wait, if I recall correctly Barack Obama’s first job was…yes, community organizer! My, how ironic. Oh and if you didn’t know, Saul Alinsky dedicated his book to none other than Lucifer.
