Hillary Clinton-Saul Alinsky

In 1969 a Wellesley undergraduate by the name of Hillary Rodham submitted her 92-page senior thesis on the theories of Saul Alinsky. The title of Hillary's thesis was "There Is Only the Fight: An Analysis of the Alinsky Model."

Alinsky was born in Chicago in 1909 and his entire life, until his death in 1972, was devoted to organizing revolution in America to destroy a system he regarded as oppressive and unjust. His book, Rules for Radicals, became the bible for "Progressives." On many occasions, Hillary Rodham Clinton has referred to herself as a "Progressive." And Michelle and Barak Obama embrace the "Progressive Movement."

In the Alinsky manual for organizing new trainees to the radical agenda, members were told to get over the idea that community organizing was done for any idealistic reason, such as betterment of a community's social ills, but existed only to gain a base from which to wrest power. The Alinsky manual instructs, "We are not virtuous by not wanting power. We are really cowards for not wanting power, because power is good and powerlessness is evil."

In the dedicatory page of his book, Rules for Radicals, Alinsky reveals insight into the radical mind by praising Lucifer as the first rebel: "Lest we forget, an over-the-shoulder acknowledgment to the very first radical: from all our legends, mythology, and history (and who is to know where mythology leaves off and history begins--or which is which), the first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom--Lucifer."

 Just something to consider.

My comments were taken from the booklet by David Horowitz entitled Barack Obama's Rules for Revolution. If you want to do further study, look up the Freedom Center or go to
