Barack Obama’s Rules for Revolution: The Alinsky Model – by David Horowitz

David Horowitz was one of the founders of the New Left in the 1960s and an editor of its largest magazine, Ramparts. He is the author, with Peter Collier, of three best selling dynastic biographies: The Rockefellers: An American Dynasty (1976); The Kennedys: An American Dream (1984); and The Fords: An American Epic (1987). Looking back in anger at their days in the New Left, he and Collier wrote Destructive Generation (1989), a chronicle of their second thoughts about the 60s that has been compared to Whittaker Chambers’ Witness and other classic works documenting a break from totalitarianism. Horowitz examined this subject more closely in Radical Son (1996), a memoir tracing his odyssey from “red-diaper baby” to conservative activist that George Gilder described as “the first great autobiography of his generation.” He is author of the newly published book The Great Betrayal (Regnery 2014), which is a chronicle of the Democrats treachery in the war on terror before 9/11 to the death of Osama bin Laden.

Since taking office Barack Obama, who promised during his campaign to create a moderate, inclusive administration, has engaged in actions that have created division and fear because they are meant to radically change America, not improve on what has always worked.  As a result, David Horowitz writes in Barack Obama’s Rules for Revolution: The Alinsky Model, “Many Americans have gone from hopefulness, through unease, to a state of alarm as the President shows a radical side only party visible during his campaign.”

Barack Obama’s Rules for Revolution: The Alinsky Model provides an understanding of the roots of the current administration’s effort to subject America to a wholesale transformation by looking at the work of one of the President’s heroes—radical Chicago “community organizer” Saul Alinsky.  The guru of Sixties radicals, Alinsky urged his followers to be flexible and opportunistic and say anything to get power, which they can then use to destroy the existing society and its economic system.  Alinsky died in 1972, but left behind an organization in Chicago dedicated to his malicious ideas.  This team hired Barack Obama in 1986 when he was 23 and taught him how to organize for radical transformation.

In this insightful new booklet, Horowitz discusses Alinsky’s work in the 60s—and his advice to radicals to seize any weapon to advance their cause.  This became the philosophy of Alinskyite organizations such as ACORN and to Alinsky disciples Van Jones, a self described “communist” who served as President Obama’s “Green Czar” until he was forced to resign when his extremist ideas became public.

After his analysis of Saul Alinsky, Horowitz points out what the grandfather of “social organizing” created “is not salvation but chaos.”  Then he asks the crucial question: “And presidential disciples of Alinsky, what will they create?”

Today we are publishing this new booklet by David Horowitz that analyzes the radical strategy of the Obama administration and reveals the Machiavellian thinking that guides it.  Everyone concerned about the future of our country should read this booklet and share it with others.

    Yes carter, everyone you don't like is paid to annoy you. I get millions of dollars a year to come on this marginal neocon rag and write posts just to bother you. That's how important your thoughts and feelings are carter and the communists will do anything to keep a lid on the braintrust known as FPM.

  • bubba4

    Yeah where is the new Ronald Regan? Bush pretty much followed the trickle-down theory of economics and that worked really well didn't it. This ain't the 80's, there is no middle class to beat down anymore..

  • USMCSniper

    Tell me how a trickle-up economic system works? Last time I checked, production precedes distribution. God you are stupid!

  • USMCSniper

    Ahhh,,..kinda slow are we?

  • bubba4

    The laffer curve you moron. “Trickle-down” is accepted to mean a certain thing…you can't just pretend it means your ideals and is therefore awesome.

    Dear Obama ,
    Dear Obama I gave my support for you, And had great hopes for you, Frankly I still have hopes
    But that’s about it,
    You claim to be Christian, And well I don’t really care one way or another if your christian or
    Not, However you claim to be,
    And indeed, You have gone to church for years as we all discovered, Infact you went to a church in
    Which Africa came first openly boasted on its website back when you were running for election,
    And you and your church had nothing but praises and blessings for Africa and Islam
    Yet America you bashed pretty regularly In fact you guys even cursed America {very un christian thing to
    Do by the way despite what your preacher said, Un christian because Jesus said to bless even your enemies
    It’s the devil who curses remember? Hmmm kinda makes me wonder } But hey I can forgive
    That I mean we all know any coward can bash America today heck a frilled laced baby girl can bash America it doesn’t take courage,
    It does how ever bother me, That while you literally hated America for America its bad history with African Americans, And well I understand the victim resentment thing and all,. But, What I don’t understand
    Is why you bash America for less wrong then Islam has done yet praise islam for far worse then America ever did to you or you ancestors on either side in fact both Africa and Islam had histories of bigotry and slavery every bit as brutal as Americas and there history is much, much longer then Americas,

    And in fact America has done you more good then anyone has after all it was America who made you president and one of the most powerful men in the world although I understand it wasn’t all America there
    Was a whole lot of Islamic money involved in that, And well that kind stinks to me but, Hey I forgive pretty
    Well, so Ok all forgiven, because I mean there are some things you have done that I really liked such as
    The beer on the white house lawn thing I thought that was really cool ,
    But then You just have to keep on kissing that Islamic terrorist butt praising Al-Azhar university known even in parts of the Middle East as the University of terror? I have to tell you I have some real problems with that one!!! But hey I love that you’re a mutt like me, That’s way cool so, You know I can let it go,
    And still have hope, that you will be great, But that hope is fading fast!! And I have to tell you I am not the only one loosing hope in you fast!
    Many who know the truth are very concerned about your extreme hypocrisy we really have to wonder what
    The heck is up with your defend islam at all costs mode but to hell with the millions of victims of islam?
    AND YOU WANT TO SILENCE THERE VOICE ALL THE FURTHER? IN other words you want to
    Help islam persecute millions more including MILLIONS OF CHRISTIANS AND AFRICANS? WHAT THE HECK IS UP WITH THAT? WHY WOULD YOU BE SO EAGER TO SACRIFICE OUR FREEDOM TO SUBMIT TO A RELIGION THAT IS GUILTY OF ALL THE THINGS YOU HATED AMERICA FOR AND TO A FAR FAR GREATER LEVEL?
    And why would you slaughter freedom and equality for its cause? Most of all Dear President Obama why do you persecute us so? There are millions of us victims of islam. Who want human rights first human rights for all of us, Why do you want to take it away from us? And even help persecute and slaughter us?

    I will still have hope in you and in fact I will even openly give you my support if for once you give me and my people yours!! OPENLY TELL THE WORLD THAT WE APOSTATES ,DISBELIEVERS ATHIESTS AND NON MUSLIMS WHO WILL NOT BOW TO ISLAM BUT INSIST HUMAN RIGHTS COME FIRST WE THE MOST PERSECUTED PEOPLE IN THE WORLD, And the least represented beseech you stand up for us speak up for our rights and equality as at least equal to that white slave master of old MUHAMMAD!!! You treat Islamic terrorists better then you do us. We want equality human rights first!

    Washington — A hearing was recently held on Religious Freedom in the Middle East which exposed the failure of the State Department and President Obama to address Human Rights abuses in Saudi Arabia and Egypt.
    On November 18, Chairman, Gary L. Ackerman (D-NY), as well as other congress representatives, questioned the Assistant Secretary of the Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights, and Labor, Michael H. Posner, on the State of Political and Religious Freedom in the Middle East. It was evident that Egypt and Saudi Arabia, both close allies of the US, have not been pressured into compliance with international human rights laws.

    Gay has been accepted as a “mainstream ” substitute word for homosexual deviancy and debauchery since about 1920 and was introduced by the group at the Oxford Fabian Society homosexual club that included John Maynard Keynes as one of its leaders, a rabid homsexual and a pedafile.

    Wow! Read this one. It is really good. And this gentleman says it just like it is.

    This venerable and much honored WW II vet is well known in Hawaii
    for his seventy-plus years of service to patriotic organizations and causes all over the country. A humble man without a political bone in his body, he has never spoken out before about a government official, until now. He dictated this letter to a friend, signed it and mailed it to the president.

    Lol, the middle class in the 80s moved up, not down, and more freedom always produces more abundance. We've had double or better the euros' growth for almost all that time, with around half their unemployment.
