From the Writings of David Horowitz: June 1, 2010


Cloward and Piven had chosen their target wisely. George Wiley and his welfare radicals terrorized social workers all over the country, but their greatest success came in New York. Newly elected in 1966, New York City’s liberal Mayor John Lindsay was no match for Wiley. He capitulated to every Wiley demand. New York’s welfare [...]

Terrorizing Young Children: SEIU Thug Tactics


On his TV show Glenn Beck railed against the thug tactics employed by the Service Employees International Union and other left-wing activists against Greg Baer, a Bank of America executive.  (no video; transcript)
This is what happened: hundreds of angry, loud, purple-shirted SEIU members and National People’s Action activists showed up at Baer’s house in Maryland. They caused a ruckus, [...]

Churches Push Leftist Radicalism


On his TV show Glenn Beck accused President Obama of “merging” the government with churches. (transcript, no video)
The point I suspect that Beck was rather clumsily trying to make was that President Obama is trying to use churches to advance his left-wing agenda, just as atheist Saul Alinsky used churches in his organizing days in Chicago [...]

Organizing America…For Leftist Chaos


The question needs to be asked: What exactly is Organizing for America (OFA) actually organizing for America?
Answer: Whatever America’s first Marxist president wants.
Organizing for America is a phony grassroots campaign organization run by the Democratic National Committee that proposes to replicate the community organizing techniques Barack Obama learned from the teachings of his fellow Chicagoan, [...]

You’ve Made Enough Money; Now Spread it Around and Share the Wealth with the Poor Government


On April 29, 2010, Barry Obama ignored his Teleprompter and Joe Biden-ed himself. He told a Quincy, Illinois crowd that Americans are too wealthy and should discontinue free-market actions: “We’re [my administration and democrats] not trying to push financial reform because we begrudge success that’s fairly earned. I mean, I do think at [...]

Reading Rules for Radicals


A couple of weeks ago, I decided to do something I should have done when then-Senator Barack Obama announced he’d run for president : I ordered a copy of Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals.
Of course I realize that Alinsky isn’t exactly the most beloved author and activist among my fellow conservatives. He was a radical [...]

Enough With This “Epistemic Closure” Crap


Should reporters who believe that most of America is stupid and insane be in the journalism business? Let’s consider the question.
Take left-wing journalist Marc Ambinder of the Atlantic. He’s not bad at his job. His insights are often worthwhile and occasionally wise. Yet Ambinder sometimes writes things so foolish that one might expect to read them at [...]

Are Tea Party ‘Crashers’ Involved With Organized Crime? Why Do They Want Your Social Security Number?


Leftists recently unveiled a new website, CrashTheTeaParty.org, aimed at sabotaging the Tea Party movement and inflicting harm on Tea Party supporters by doing Lord-knows-what with their Social Security numbers.
Are the Tea Party crashers harmless goofball pranksters, Saul Alinsky-inspired schemers, or would-be storm troopers breaking up political meetings? Time will tell.
Michelle Malkin has identified the creator of the [...]
