Alinsky, proponent of Marxist revolution

There is a good article by John Perazzo at Discover the Networks about the revolutionary thought of Saul Alinsky, whose methods Barack Obama has studied and followed. In Rules for Radicals Alinsky wrote:

[W]e are concerned, with how to create mass organizations to seize power and give it to the people; to realize the democratic dream of equality, justice, peace, cooperation, equal and full opportunities for education, full and useful employment, health, and the creation of those circumstances in which men have the chance to live by the values that give meaning to life. We are talking about a mass power organization which will change the world…. This means revolution.

Alinsky was born in Chicago in 1909 of Russian Jewish parents. He is yet another leftist Jew—or, more precisely, leftist of Jewish birth—of whom it could be fairly said that America would have been better off without him. David Horowitz used to speak about the Destructive Left. How much of the Destructive Left has been of Jewish origin? Fifty percent?

Which is why, as I’ve said many times, the national quota act of 1924, which brought the mass European immigration to an end, that same immigration of which I am a descendant, was among the most beneficial legislative enactments in America’s history. If that immigration had continued, the 1930s would have been far more radical than they were, and the strong, confident, harmonious America of the mid twentieth century—that same America to which Jewish neoconservatives are grateful for its having defeated Hitler and contained Communism—would not have existed.
