Hillary’s Alinksy Ties

STANLEY KURTZ: What is the purpose of an election campaign? Supposedly, elections allow voters to decide who and how they want to run the country. The candidates explain their positions, debate the merits of the issues and then the voters choose.

You might remember a little thing called the Lincoln-Douglas Debates. Well, nothing like that is happening these days. Let’s review. In 2008, Americans elected a president who advertised himself as a post-partisan unifier, a fellow who was famous for saying that there weren’t red states or blue states, only the United States. And a lot of Americans, even some Republicans, believed him. Yet, the man they elected turned out to be the most partisan, the most intentionally polarizing and the most leftist president in the history of the United States.

The people in this audience, I would wager, weren’t fooled by any of this, but, on the whole, the people of the United States were fooled. And the question now is are we, as a people, about to be fooled again?

    there is some considerable opinion that she actually had an affair with alinsky, she was definitely treating him as a mentor . you read his ideas and wrap it up with cloward and piven’s ideas about collapsing the system and it defines where hildebeest and obama are at

  • Norman_In_New_York

    Hillary is a lousy campaigner who may not survive Bernie Sanders nor any Republican who doesn’t fuck up by being too nice.

    • Justin St.Denis

      Hillary has to be the worst public speaker in the American political arena today. Her voice affects many like nails on a chalkboard.

  • Barrington Minge

    From the outside (UK) looking in – Do Americans REALLY want this non-achiever as President?
    What has this woman actually done for America that puts her in a position to even think of being President?

    • Justin St.Denis

      Fuck all, actually.

  • Minicapt

    I’d start with 60-grit paper, probably with an orbital sander.

    Cheers

    • Jabberwokk

      That picture is atrocious.

      • Exile1981

        I looks like a topo map of hell.

      • Justin St.Denis

        Actually, she looks even worse “in the flesh”. Every “good” Hillary photo has been photoshopped to death. In reality, she actually does look very prune-like.

      I got a big, fat 0. Still, a truly progressive teacher/professor would no doubt give me a pass for trying. Perhaps I might even have gotten a really good score if I had provided a standard progressive response like “I refuse to answer this question as it goes against my religion (Islam)” or “These questions originate from a discredited, white, patriarchal worldview – notice how Obama is always at the bottom of the list! – and therefore I refuse to respond to these racist questions”.

      Anyway, very interesting (and spooky, actually). Did she REALLY say #5?!

    • Brett_McS

      Brilliant! I also got zero.

      • Jabberwokk

        also zero

    • Xavier

      I too missed every one.

  • Alex

    Quite a picture – is there such a thing as inverse airbrushing?

  • Ron MacDonald

    She looks like Elena Ceaușescu.

  • Reader
  • Jabberwokk

    You know, Despite it all I don’t want to hate her. I don’t want to hate anyone. But she makes it so impossible to even want to tolerate her much less ‘like’. Like trying to like getting stabbed in the face. Just can’t do it.

    • k1992

      Hate the sin but love the sinner? Personally, I’ve always thought that that was a nice idea – but impossible to implement, in practice.

      • Justin St.Denis

        Speaking as a Christian, Hillary does indeed pose a challenge to me. I don’t want to hate her. I know hate is corrosive. But I actually struggle with hating her for making me feel hatred towards her. It’s a conundrum for every practicing Christian. George Soros has a similar effect upon me. And Al Sharpton. And Melissa Harris-Perry. And Chris Mathews. Many seem to actually channel demons/Satan, don’t they?

        • k1992

          Yes. I also am a Christian, and for me the biggest challenge is Muslims in general. It’s fine to hate their sick and vicious ideology/religion, but not the people themselves, since they’re (theoretically, at least!) human. My take anyway.

          The conclusion I’ve come to is the question turns on what one means by “love”. In the case of Muslims, for instance, for me to love them means I am wiling to pray for them, hope they get to heaven, treat them politely, etc., but … I don’t trust them because of the ideology they choose to follow, and I therefore keep them at a certain distance, if possible. I can’t/won’t be their friend.

          • Jabberwokk

            Might I suggest the “be as innocent as doves but as wise as a serpent” strategy.

            Also don’t be afraid to make peace with even your enemies. Jesus visited Zacchaeus as well as befriended prostitutes.

            Just don’t be stupid. Hands up, chin down.

          • k1992

            “Hands up, chin down.” I like that. Maybe another way of saying it might be “Hope for the best, prepare for the worst”.

          • Jabberwokk

            And a really good way to move forward without getting knocked out.

        • Jabberwokk

          You give demons to much credit. I much prefer the line from Dante’s inferno

          “The Earth is another form of Hell. And men are its demons.”

      • Jabberwokk

        Happened in Charleston when the families forgave Dylan Roof. Without bringing in a tonne of Christianese into this I’ll just say that God grants the believer the power to forgive and for some people without it it *is* impossible. I understand our Atheist friends won’t like that answer, and i get why truly. But never the less there it is.

        • k1992

          I very much admire their (Christian) forgiveness. But there is a real question of what it means to “turn the other cheek”, isn’t there? I’m not being provocative, with this question: I just don’t really know the answer myself.

          For example, should those Christians who were executed on the beach in Libya have resisted (and maybe they did, of course)? I think so, personally, but some might claim that the truly moral action would have been to accept their fate and pray for the murdering scum inflicting it?

          • Jabberwokk

            Well if your going to bring it up at least quote it right.

            But I tell you, do not resist an evil person. If anyone slaps you on the ***right*** cheek, turn to them the other cheek also.

            If your a right handed person stand up and try and strike the right side of someones face.

            Notice anything?

            A: You have to backhand them.

            that scripture was trying to tell people how to deal with an insult not an attack and so does the rest of the passage. In context on dealing with the occupying roman empire.

            As far as Libya is concerned I don;t know. whatever happened there was between them and God.

            That said I do know one thing. You can’t spread the gospel dead.

    • Xavier

      If it’s my burden, I can hate her enough for both of us.
