Introducing Leftist Agitator Deepak Bhargava

On his TV show, Glenn Beck looked at the role that former ACORN official Deepak Bhargava is playing in influencing the Obama administration.

Bhargava is executive director of the radical left-wing community organizing group, the Center for Community Change (CCC). Founded in 1968, the group is dedicated to defending welfare entitlements and leftist anti-poverty programs.

CCC bases its training programs on techniques expounded by the famed radical organizer Saul Alinsky. Following Alinsky’s blueprint for establishing “grassroots” organizations to agitate for social change, the Center claims it has “nurtured thousands of local groups and leaders” across the United States.

Bhargava was shown giving a speech in December last year. He said that “big and bold solutions” were needed for America and that community organizers were going to be involved in “building a new economy for shared prosperity and expanding our democracy.”

Of course when radical leftists use the term democracy they don’t mean what regular Americans mean when they use the term. To the far left, it is a code word for socialism itself.

Bhargava also said that the socialist agenda is now moving forward by stealth.

The Center for Community Change is a member of the United for Peace and Justice anti-war coalition, which is led by Leslie Cagan, a longtime committed socialist who aligns her politics with those of Fidel Castro’s Communist Cuba.

The Center is financially supported by such foundations as the Ahmanson Foundation, the Morris and Gwendolyn Cafritz Foundation, the Carnegie Corporation of New York, the Annie E. Casey Foundation, the Nathan Cummings Foundation, the Fannie Mae Foundation, the Ford Foundation, the Joyce Foundation, the Scherman Foundation, the Open Society Institute, the David and Lucile Packard Foundation, the Public Welfare Foundation, the Rockefeller Foundation, the Surdna Foundation, and the Woods Fund of Chicago.
