HotAir ^ | 9/5/2009 | Instapundit

Posted on 09/06/2009 7:54:59 PM PDT by RushIsMyTeddyBear

The group collectively lamented that the Right discovered Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals.” “It’s kind of scary! They have learned all of the tricks,” said Sue Esty, the assistant director of American Federation of State County and Municipal Employees Maryland.

Yeah, babe. And it's going to be the stake through the liberals' heart.

I like this comment:
we’ve always known them….we’re gonna do it better than you…the right was laboring under the illusion that you were as respectful to your domestic enemies as you are ferocious to your foreign ones… luckily you corrected our error with your kindnesses towards Joe the Plumber and the Palins…. “thanks” sven10077 on September 6, 2009 at 10:35 PM

Another goodie:

"Yeah, and we’re going to keep using them.

"Only when conservatives use the tricks, we base them on FACTS. We don’t have to make things up to find something to ridicule.

"So you might as well fold now, because we’ve got the truth on our side.

They would NEVER say that if they REALLY did think that we had. The statement is supposed to give us a false emotional satiety instead of something else.

And that other thing is IN FACT mastering his treachery.

So....nice try.

Interesting that Alinsky’s “model” - a complete communist takeover actually - is ADMIRED by a state, county, and municipal workers’ (union) manager.

Gee.... Are they loyal to the United States, or to international socialism, or to their union?

Well we have to keep getting in their faces and using their ridicule for the insnaely stupid and evil things they are trying to do to ruin America.

Ridicule Obam aand the Dem Party controlling Congress for 9.7% unemployment to start. No more of this Green Jobs horsesh*t.

“Yep...we have recovering liberals with inside info crawling all over the place. Ever ask yourself why? “

I was at Stanford in the early 70s during the Vietnam protest and all the Black Panther stuff, I even worked with Joan Baez’s mother in a hippy bookstore. The stuff happening now is just all old Mao little red book pap. It won’t fool anyone long term. It’s all fun till someone’s eye gets poked out.

Ridicule is the key.

Constant. Never, ever stop. Even for a moment.

Use their vocabulary. Call good things “choices”. Call them FASCISTS. (it’s the one bad form of government they’re ashamed of)

Never. Ever. Stop.

Alinsky stole a lot of “his” tricks from a NCY Dada/anarchist group known as Black Mask and later as Up Against the Wall / MF.

Some months ago I obtained the text for “Rules”, and it dawned on me that Alinsky was no genius as the left hails him as. His methods are pretty pedestrian and obvious as ones’ nose, he was just the first person to put it all down in one convenient handbook digestible to the brown acid users.

Good post. In my estimation, liberals have always discounted the cognitive abilities of those of us on the right.

The left's superiority complex is doing them in. I've seen it numerous times on my alumni blogs...it's the same old stuff: conservatives are idiots, conservatives are evil, conservatives are uncaring. They really blow a gasket when their cherished tenets are challenged by facts that are thrown back in their proverbial faces.

I've done too good a job on matters of taxation. There are simply no more discussions on matters of tax policy, as I knock their arguments out of the park. It's not that hard to do, considering I've been preparing tax returns for close to 30 years.

They thought they had me when Buffett was claiming that his secretary was in a higher marginal tax bracket.

My response was two-fold: first, it was impossible to verify his claim as he did not make his tax returns public. Secondly, I said "you folks are missing the larger point. Buffett makes millions of dollars per year, yet he pays his own personal secretary (who probably works at least 60 hours per week for him) a paltry $60K? What an effin', two-faced cheapskate!"

Crickets have been chirping ever since.

I like the “ridicule the enemy” rule best.

Sun Tsu has one that goes “If your enemy is quick to anger, seek to irritate him.”

Thomas Jefferson “Resistance to tyrants is obedience to God”.

One facebook post. One!

And the entire Marxist health dictatorship train-wreck was.

Well. A train-wreck...

I had an opportunity once to see Marxist health care up close. The real thing. Like, real Marx.

Only thing which saved my friend, was my willingness to step up with USD.

No way that’s the system for America.

But Republicans SUCK at saying so.

There is a majority of demonrats running everything and a lot of calendar between now and the next elections.

And a lot of misery as people of all political persuasions become unemployed. That trumps the calendar every time.
