Obama, Alinsky, and Scapegoats


Great piece on the mind of Obama at American Thinker.  READ THE WHOLE THING….excerpts below:

‘Pick the Target, Freeze It, Personalize It  and Polarize It.’  
 – Saul Alinsky, Rules for Radicals. 
Scapegoating is a really effective manipulation for mobs that have long ago decided that their real enemy is…  anybody. Because that overwhelming feeling of rising rage matters much more than whoever is the victim of the moment. That overwhelming tension is intolerable and seeks an outlet.
That’s what Barack Obama taught his ACORN followers in all his Community Agitator classes in Chicago. That slogan defines mob scapegoating…..
…..In psychiatry, scapegoating is called “displacement of rage,” and it is often said to be a low-level defense, one that comes easily to people who are already emotionally troubled or impaired.  With mature adults scapegoating doesn’t work very well — not unless you can make them into insecure wrecks by destroying their incomes, for example. That’s what happened to the German middle class in the Weimar Republic. It’s what will happen in this country if the economy fails to recover. That is why it is so vital to keep the administration from its most extreme spending plans, which could harm the economy if the Democrats in Congress are foolish enough.
Scapegoating is very simple, and very malevolent. It is the defining feature of human destructiveness. All the truly irrational actions in human history involve displaced rage. Pathological societies in the world are always torn by a search for new scapegoats.
About Alinsky:
Saul Alinsky was born in 1909 of Russian Jewish parents in New York City. Why was the Alinsky family living in America in 1909 rather than Minsk or Pinsk or Omsk or Chomsk? Because they fled the Russian pogroms of 1890-1910, like thousands of other Jews.
I don’t know if Alinsky’s parents were direct victims of the peasant mobs, but chances are that his aunts or uncles or grandparents must have been…..
….Alinsky did not write his little book of Rules (for Radicals) against the Tsar of Russia, nor against mob demagogues in general; rather, he wrote it in a rage against free market wealth, against capitalist individualism, against the prosperous middle class and its most successful home, the United States of America. Alinsky became the hero for other agitators — people who used to call themselves “communist agitators.” Those were not shameful words when little Saul was growing up, they were proud words.
About the Obamas:
……It doesn’t matter where you direct the rage. Brazil’s Marxist president Lula blames “white people with blue eyes.” We are living in a time of reverse racism, having flipped Dixiecrat racism to the other side. The tragedy is that we have not transcended race, not and as long as racial demagogues can squeeze this new hatred for money and power. The Obamas are the very incarnation of reverse racism. That is why they felt the need to show contempt to the Queen of England, and to bow down to the pre-medieval King of Saudi Arabia. In the next four years, or eight, or longer, you will see them do that over and over and over again, because that is their lifelong obsession.
Barack Obama and Michelle attended J-Wright’s church for twenty years, and had their little girls baptized and raised at Trinity United. Our President was brought up by a mother who was a young college radical from Mercer Island, WA, and Kansas. His absentee father in Kenya was a proud post-colonial socialist — until, it seems, he ran into trouble with Jomo Kenyatta and had two car accidents in a row; the second one of which killed him. But Barack Obama didn’t draw the rather obvious lesson that his father may have been assassinated by a typical post-colonial tyrant. Instead, he adopted the side of the persecutor in the same way the young Saul Alinsky did. Obama grew up in his early years in Indonesia, where hundreds of thousands of ethnic Chinese had recently been massacred by — you guessed it —  raging ethnic mobs looking for scapegoats. Oddly enough those Indonesian massacres are not mentioned in Obama’s two autobiographies.
 
Obama’s first boyhood mentor was the CPUSA’s guy in Hawaii, a black man filled with racial rage and resentment, and little Barry was handed on from one radical friend to the next, in a long chain by way of Harvard Law to the Chicago Democrat Machine. The one big gap in his autobiography is his college years at Columbia, but knowing what we know we can fill that in pretty well. He married Michelle, herself a daughter of an African-American ward boss and friend of Jesse Jackson, who made a brilliant career out of scapegoating corporations for money, power and personal fame. Then Barack was taught politics by Emile Jones, the political godfather of Southside. 
There’s only one useful rule for predicting human beings:
People tend to do in the future what they did in the past.
So Barack Obama is now President of the United States.
What will he do?
How about ‘Pick the Target, Freeze It, Personalize It and Polarize It?’ 
There go those AIG bonus guys. Let’s tax ninety percent of their bonuses and smear them in the media. Done.
There goes Rick Wagoner. Let’s kill his career at GM. Done.
Let’s try to rouse up the mob against Rush Limbaugh. Oops! Forget it — he’s got his own megaphone. Next time just go for the ones who can’t protest.
Now he darkly threatens trying officials responsible for making policy in the Bush administration.
 Life will be so much better then, won’t it?
Or will it?
