Six Alinsky Rules That Explain Obama’s Words and Deeds


To read or order David Horowitz’s pamphlet, Barack Obama’s Rules for Revolution: The Alinsky Model, click here.

In spite of the media’s conspicuous silence on the matter, it is no secret that Saul Alinsky’s manual for “community organizers”—Rules for Radicals—exerted an immeasurable influence over the world’s most well recognized community organizer, President Barack Obama.  Thus, to understand why Obama does what he does, we need to be familiar with the vision that Alinsky delineated in his book.

Below are six ideas, six “rules,” that the Godfather of community organizing packs between the covers of Rules, ideas that Obama’s imbibed hook, line, and sinker.

(1). Politics is all about power relations, but to advance one’s power, one must couch one’s positions in the language of morality.

Community organizers are “political realists” who “see the world as it is: an arena of power politics moved primarily by perceived immediate self-interests, where morality is rhetorical rationale for expedient action and self-interest” (12).

(2). There is only three kinds of people in the world: rich and powerful oppressors, the poor and disenfranchised oppressed, and the middle-class whose apathy perpetuates the status quo.

“The world as it is” is a rather simple world.  From this perspective, the world consists of but three kinds of people: “the Haves, the Have-Nots, and the Have-a-Little, Want Mores.”  The Haves, possessing, as they do, all of “the power, money, food, security, and luxury,” resist the “change” necessary to relieve the Have-Nots of the “poverty, rotten housing, disease, ignorance, political impotence, and despair” from which they suffer (18).

The Have-a-Little, Want Mores comprise what we call “the middle class.”  While Alinsky believes that this group “is the genesis of creativity,” (19) he also claims that it supplies the world with its “Do-Nothings.” The Do-Nothings are those who “profess a commitment to social change for ideals of justice, equality, and opportunity, and then abstain from and discourage all effective action for change [.]”  Alinsky remarks that in spite of their reputable appearances, the Do-Nothings are actually “invidious” (20).

This being so, they are as resistant to change as are the Haves.

(3). Change is brought about through relentless agitation and “trouble making” of a kind that radically disrupts society as it is.  

Since both the middle and upper classes have none of the organizer’s passion for radical change, he must do his best to “stir up dissatisfaction and discontent [.]”  He must “agitate to the point of conflict.”  The organizer “dramatizes…injustices” and engages in “‘trouble making’ by stirring up” just those “angers, frustrations, and resentments” (117) that will eventuate in the “disorganization of the old and organization of the new” (116 emphasis original).  He is determined to give rise to as much “confusion” and “fear” as possible (127).

(4). There can be no conversation between the organizer and his opponents.  The latter must be depicted as being evil.

If his compulsion to “agitate” makes it sound as if the organizer is disinclined to converse with those with whom he disagrees, that is because, well, he is. Alinsky is blunt on this point: “You don’t communicate with anyone purely on the rational facts or ethics of an issue” (89).    It is true that “moral rationalization is indispensable,” (43) that the organizer must “clothe” one’s goals and strategies with “moral arguments” (36). But there can be no conversation with one’s opponents, for to converse with them is to humanize them.

The organizer’s objective is to demonize those who stand in the way of his designs for change.

The reason for this is simple: “Men will act when they are convinced that their cause is 100 per cent on the side of the angels and that the opposition [is] 100 per cent on the side of the devil.” The organizer “knows that there can be no action until issues are polarized to this degree” (78).

Elaborating on this theme, Alinsky asserts that in “charging that so-and-so is a racist bastard and then diluting” this “with qualifying remarks such as ‘He is a good churchgoing man, generous to charity, and a good husband,’” one convicts oneself of “political idiocy” (134).  The winning strategy is to “pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it” (130 emphases original).

(5). The organizer can never focus on just a single issue.  He must move inexhaustibly from one issue to the next. 

The organizer “must develop multiple issues,” (76) for “multiple issues mean constant action and life” (78).  Alinsky explains: “A single issue is a fatal strait jacket that…drastically limits” the organizer’s “appeal,” but “multiple issues…draw in…many potential members essential to the building of a broad, mass-based organization” (120).  The only “way to keep the action going” is by “constantly cutting new issues as the action continues, so that by the time the enthusiasm and the emotions for one issue have started to de-escalate, a new issue” has emerged “with a consequent revival” (161).

(6). Taunt one’s opponents to the point that they label you a “dangerous enemy” of “the establishment.”

Finally, in order “to put the organizer on the side of the people, to identify him with the Have-Nots,” it is imperative that he “maneuver and bait the establishment so that it will publicly attack him as a ‘dangerous enemy’” (100).

Just because Barack Obama has left behind the low-income Chicago communities in which he once agitated doesn’t mean that he left behind the skills as a community agitator that he learned from Saul Alinsky.  Rather, he now regards the country as his community to organize as he sees fit.

Obama not infrequently invokes American ideals, even while he conspires to “fundamentally transform” America.

In spite of what he says, Obama does not want national unity.  There can be no unity with a people who one wants to fundamentally transform.

The President regularly speaks and acts as if there is perpetual class warfare being waged by “the Haves” on “the Have Nots.”  Indeed, this is what he wants for Americans to believe.  It is this desire on his part that accounts for why he spares no occasion to demonize both “the richest one percent” who he accuses of refusing to pay “their fair share,” as well as those Republicans who threaten to impede his plans to raise taxes.

Again, Obama does not want unity.  He wants division.

Obama constantly moves from one divisive issue to the next, from Obamacare to gun-control, from amnesty for illegal immigrants to support for “same-sex marriage.”  We see now why this is so.

Obama does not want unity.  He wants to keep the country as polarized and disoriented as possible.

To know why Obama speaks and acts as he does, we need to know about Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals.

    Great insights.

    The strategery for the GOP must be to make the race a marathon of epic proportions instead of a the whiff of fear and crisis. I.E., suppose an immigration bill passes the Senate. Or, for that matter, any bill. The House breaks the bill into individual sections, even single words, and relentless has hearings on why it's bad and won't work. Continually point out, "we must read this since Obama and the Dems won't, or can't"

    This occult rite was an act of "surrender" to Islam and determines the "future destiny" of America.

  • NHTom

  • Ar'nun

    This actually explains a lot. We see Obama tip toe around the Middle Class, occasionally even giving them a few brief words of assurance and encouragement. He makes claims that he will not do things to hurt them, but then in the end they are the only ones hurt. His goal by looking at the Alinskyite tactics is to push them into expanding the pool of Have-Nots while not alienating them.

    One thing not explained however is why he seems to be protective of the Haves. Although he often talks disparagingly about the Haves, his policies never seem to affect them. You also see him cuddle up to them when campaigning. Obviously he needs their money to continue his reign of tyranny, but he can't be reelected again, yet he is still seen with and praising the Elite.

    • ltcdmward

      Yes. Appealing to their shallow sense of morality to get — well — their money and their image or stamp of legitimacy (they are sort of mass media centers of influence). A consumate user. The worst kind of mercenary.

      • ltcdmward

        And …."Finally, in order “to put the organizer on the side of the people, to identify him with the Have-Nots,” it is imperative that he “maneuver and bait the establishment so that it will publicly attack him as a ‘dangerous enemy’” (100)."

        Hmmm. Could this explain the cover-up of his academic records, birth circumstances, etc.? To deliberately "bait" a desired reaction from some quarters and make him look like a victim?

        • Ar'nun

          That is a very good point.

        • Racist

          absolutely! It was his Communist NWO ally, disguised and widely portrayed as his opponent, Hillary who originated the campaign to "expose" his unconfirmed and hidden records and birth certificate. And it has been either the administration itself directly or his propaganda machine in the Fake-stream Media who have stirred the pot and agitated the issue when it has lost steam and he needed a timely distraction!

    • Capelady

      Obama is only cozy with the "haves" who support him financially. It is just like his crony capitalism – he hates corporations unless they give him political support.

      Obama suffers from Narcissistic Personality Disorder and if you look up the symptoms, it explains anything that is not covered by Alinsky principles!

    • kateyleigh

      That, and his narcissism, He really wants to be a 'Have'. Think carefully on re-elected, in a fundamentally changed America, elections as we know them won't exist. It's not enough to look at the present, we really do need to look 'forward' and understand their vision of that future. They're banking on 2014 for complete control. But whether the Conservatives keep hold on the House and and even if the gain in the Senate, for all intents and purposes they've become figureheads.

  • Charles Wenzel

    Though Obummer's 'zombies' will ever walk in lock step, even over a cliff (look at how the minorities are worse off than 5 years ago but ever-worshipful), his act is wearing thin with those previously duped but still with a pulse who had their "ears tickled" by his hopey, changey, feelly routine.

    The media continues to spray their perfume on his 'policy droppings' but after a while even that stinks. Unless there's another Rob Emmanuel-crisis to up his poll numbers, the Community Organizer In Chief has peaked. Obummer's stale act is becoming 'old news' as he arrogantly misreads his re-election and steps more and more from behind his benign curtain.

        • objectivefactsmatter

          "Why? That is always the argument of the Bolshevik. You dont examine yourselves, and here ya go again, hurling the tit for tat crap…"

          This is how Western and communist children are taught to dispute people with objective moral standards. Show them that they're imperfect. It ends the discussion in their minds. It's a sign of indoctrination to rely on such fallacious logic.

          IOW, you're correct that most Westerners think like indoctrinated Bolsheviks,

      • objectivefactsmatter

        "Unlike the always-above-board, fair-shake Republicans?"

        Republicans are not deceptive for ideological purposes. Individuals fail and are not chastised for it often enough. No politician is sacred. Certainly no party can be sacred then.

        Democrats are generally deceptive according to their ideological needs to use deception to affect change. You might even say that the middle of each party are personally more or less just as committed to their respective visions of morality. But when the visions as defined by thought leaders are so different from one another it makes a lot of sense to focus on those ideas and thought leaders. See?

        Some individual Democrats may have as much integrity as other Republicans. We're talking about the ideology that drives American politics and often we look at the biggest parties because that's where the power is.

        The Democrats seem nicer to the uninformed. Life is complicated and keeping things simple makes it easier to deceive. Telling the entire story leads to a loss of focus and inability to get a consistent message out.

        The Republicans as a party are paying the price recently for an ideology that is too complicated for the typical Westerner to understand because of generations of compromised education standards and plain indoctrination. Considering that they are simply trying to conserve crucial American values, if I am correct then this is very scary and significant.

      • objectivefactsmatter

        "Unlike the always-above-board, fair-shake Republicans?"

        Which reminds me to ask how often do you hear Democrat loyalists criticizing their own party except when they compromise with Republicans? Never?

        Same here. Ever hear a Democrat say that we spend too much on entitlements? Me neither.

      The ones that are supposed to be our Dobermans and German Shepards — the press — have let them inside the house and ceased barking.

    • Ar'nun

      It would be near impossible to out Alinsky the Left since they have been doing it so long and have perfected it. Just keep hammering them with facts, and don't back down. Alinsky's tactics are designed to create political bullies. The best thing you can to stop a bully is refuse to back down.

    • Drakken

      Instead of being sheep and keep taking it from the left, one has to turn into wolves and keep the left off balance and afraid, that is what will work, anything less is defeat.

  • Freedomgal65

    Right on. Anyone who would want to put Alinsky's Rules for Radicals into effect has to be truly diabolical, as is Obama, the American Prince of Darkness. And sadly, most Americans have no clue as to how they're being used for the evil purpose of destroying the free America and "fundamentally transforming" it into a totalitarian state. Our country is dying before our very eyes and it's apparent the RINO's are helping it along. So, FOX News. where are you on this? Something or someone has to have the guts to come out and tell Americans the hard truth….that their own President is systematically destroying the Constitution in order to destroy everything America has stood for. How very sad for our kids, grandkids, and future generations.

      "I notice that Ayers and wife are very careful about their public appearances. They also have security men who seem to be expecting trouble at every event."

      They are hypocrite freaks. The reason they hate America so much is they projected (n their minds) their own acute narcissism on to society at large. They hate themselves without knowing the true origins of their hatred. You can say that about a lot of these revolutionary psychopaths.

    There is NO time left for the America that we once knew. People MUST stand now! We have to fight for our rights against evil. All must take the same tactics as the dark side and I think that Obama wants us to go to war against him. With regret It has to happen once again, a civil war and we must over come.

  • JacksonPearson

    Here are Alinsky's Rules for Radicals
    Rule 1: Power is not only what you have, but what an opponent thinks you have. If your organization is small, hide your numbers in the dark and raise a din that will make everyone think you have many more people than you do.

    Rule 2: Never go outside the experience of your people. The result is confusion, fear, and retreat.

    Rule 3: Whenever possible, go outside the experience of an opponent. Here you want to cause confusion, fear, and retreat.

    Rule 4: Make opponents live up to their own book of rules. “You can kill them with this, for they can no more obey their own rules than the Christian church can live up to Christianity.”

    Rule 5: Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon. It’s hard to counterattack ridicule, and it infuriates the opposition, which then reacts to your advantage.

    Rule 6: A good tactic is one your people enjoy. “If your people aren’t having a ball doing it, there is something very wrong with the tactic.”

    Rule 7: A tactic that drags on for too long becomes a drag. Commitment may become ritualistic as people turn to other issues.

    Rule 8: Keep the pressure on. Use different tactics and actions and use all events of the period for your purpose. “The major premise for tactics is the development of operations that will maintain a constant pressure upon the opposition. It is this that will cause the opposition to react to your advantage.”

    Rule 9: The threat is more terrifying than the thing itself. When Alinsky leaked word that large numbers of poor people were going to tie up the washrooms of O’Hare Airport, Chicago city authorities quickly agreed to act on a longstanding commitment to a ghetto organization. They imagined the mayhem as thousands of passengers poured off airplanes to discover every washroom occupied. Then they imagined the international embarrassment and the damage to the city’s reputation.

    Rule 10: The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative. Avoid being trapped by an opponent or an interviewer who says, “Okay, what would you do?”

    Rule 11: Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, polarize it. Don’t try to attack abstract corporations or bureaucracies. Identify a responsible individual. Ignore attempts to shift or spread the blame.

    According to Alinsky, the main job of the organizer is to bait an opponent into reacting. “The enemy properly goaded and guided in his reaction will be your major strength.”

          I think that this is the reason behind the R.I.C.O. statutes. Yes they were written to fight organized crime. Now it seems that we have an organized crime family in the White House with a once proud American political party as the front organization and Soros the Godfather of the “family” is buying off the leadership of the other Party. If their Godfather Soros could be brought to justice, I wonder how the Marxist party and it’s hacks would react.

      “Lest we forget at least 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 where 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.”
      ~ Saul Alinsky

      Also, it should be noted that Saul Alinsky frequently endorses Judeo-Christian values all throughout his book, and says that one of the major problems with society is that people don’t care enough about their fellow men.

      But regardless, if you think Obama is a follower of Saul Alinsky’s methods, here’s a Washington Post article you should read:

      Saul Alinsky would be so disappointed: Obama breaks ‘Rules for Radicals’:

    Treason. The only way to get rid of DIC(Dictator-in-Chief) and his minions and the malignancy that they all represent

  • DanWas

    It’s really, really a stretch to say these apply to Obama, who’s policies and approach to spending is moderately conservative at best. If his same actions (and same results) would have come from a Republican, he’d be hailed as the second coming of Ronald Reagan.

  • OneWhoKnows

    It’s really, really, really a stretch to say they don’t apply to Obama, the consumate community organizer.

  • GeeGee

    I wonder how much the ‘interlopers’ learned from Alinsky?
    It is now everyone’s go to for getting their way. Pitch a fit, demonize, demoralize, insult, (or kill) …. and blame others.

    Obama economically enslaves the American citizens and releases criminals and terrorists! There is to much political dumbness in this country. If you actually listen to a Politician you will hear lie after lie after lie. If pressured for more thought or explanation you begin to hear fabricated lies (lies that are strung together to deceive the weak minded). Washington is infested with these soulless politicians, a clean house is the answer. The Bill of Rights and America’s Constitution are at stake and our lives are on the line.

    The term I use is “DIVIDE and RULE” and I don’t believe Saul Alinsky invented it.

    Psychopaths and Tyrants have used the tactic for centuries to CONTROL the people

  • Joe

    Alinsky was out to empower the have-nots. Obama uses his strategy to divide we the people, and advocates on behalf of illegals (a minority), homosexuals (a minority), Muslims (a minority in this country), the poor and uninsured (a minority) and other minorities. Is that what he’s all about in his community organizing of America, or is he pursuing a hidden agenda masquerading as a champion for minorities? Why is he working so hard to divide us with gun control, socialized medicine, gay rights, etc?

    • wsurfs

      WHY Joe? BECAUSE then Obama the EVIL will have ALL the control…We cannot let this happen…WE are Americans…United we Stand, Divided we FALL..

  • metanoia

    This administration is a virtual Pied Piper leading the sheeple over a cliff.

    • wsurfs

      Yes, metanoia…we are being manipulated by Obama the EVIL agitator….! We must remember that we are Americans first, last and always. United we STAND, Divided we FALL…!

  • wsurfs

    It all makes sense now, people…We are being manipulated by Obama the EVIL Agitator. The thing we cannot ever allow to happen is that Obama makes us forget we are Americans…Obama wants us to forget that and be divided. Obama appears so detached, but guess what? Obama the Evil’s agenda is right on schedule…he is trying to divide us…we cannot let that happen….United we STAND ….Divided we FALL..!! Remember that…!! I intend to do the same..!

      … Says the guy who is dividing us as he complains about the President dividing us.

      • wsurfs .

        First of all, I AM NOT THE ONE CREATING DIVISIONS AMONG THE PEOPLE OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA…PAL….THAT OBVIOUSLY IS YOUR JOB AND MISSION…!!!! SINCE DAY ONE, YOUR SO-CALLED “president” has been and continues to be the DIVIDER-IN-CHIEF….THAT IS A FACT….!! Also, I am not a guy….!!!

  • pointdan

    Well done America . . . enjoy your food stamps !

  • Patrick Shoemaker

    These ‘rules for radicals’ look like the rules that Karl Rove and the right-wing propaganda machine lives by.

  • nonofmybiznez

    Well, we know that Hillary is a follower of Alinsky. She based her thesis on him. http://www.economicpolicyjournal.com/2013/04/hillary-clintons-1969-thesis-on-saul.html
