The current travesty of justice playing out in New York City, that is, misdemeanors whose statute of limitations ran out two years ago being raised to the level of Federal felonies, and Mayor Eric Adams’ condescending suggestion that Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) should not exercise her 1st Amendment right to protest Trump’s indictment, should be a clarion call to Americans. Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, James Comey, James Clapper, John Brennan, General Mark Milley, and many FBI agents knowingly committed election fraud, perhaps treason (eh, Gen Milley?), other high crimes, and lied to the American public. Lord Fauci, the CDC, Big Pharma, and the American medical profession lied about COVID and continue to do so while peddling a useless, and apparently harmful, vaccine. Yet these criminals remain free. There is no longer a justice system in America, only a Stalinist-style political apparatus that selects the guilty person then finds the crime.
So, who will retrieve America from this Woke Marxist nightmare? Liz Cheney? Mitt Romney? Chris Sununu? Mike Pence? Glen Youngkin? John Bolton? Nikki Haley? These wimpy Establishment Republicans – Trump haters all – do not have the leadership skills, gamesmanship, intestinal fortitude, and ruthlessness required to confront Marxism at home, let alone abroad. What we need is a Trump-DeSantis ticket. And the sooner the better. Our country is descending into a Third World totalitarian state run by elites. A Trump-DeSantis team would be a powerful force that would re-establish the Constitution, revive pride in America and American values, destroy the evil that is Woke Marxism, and project strength abroad. And DeSantis likely would become the most effective and productive vice-president ever, and a shoo-in for the Republican nomination for president in 2028.
What can we as Americans do to end this Woke Marxist nightmare? Well, if our Founding Fathers ever thought about codifying the plans and methods of the embattled farmers at Lexington and Concord on 19 April 1775 or amending the Constitution to keep demented criminals out of the Oval Office they failed to do so. Therefore, we need to look to our Marxist
“friends” for advice. Saul D. Alinsky, a Left social activist (read: Marxist) par excellence, provided Rules for Radicals, A Pragmatic Primer for Realistic Radicals in 1971. Hillary Clinton wrote her college thesis on Alinsky, and Barack Obama was inspired to become a community organizer (aka: persons who cons the naïve, ignorant, and gullible for their own gain).
God fearing, gun toting, Bible reading, church going, school board criticizing Americans are now the realistic radicals of the 21st century. Indeed, our alleged President has called us fascists. Perhaps we should read, study, and follow the rules that Leftist radicals have done for 50 plus years with such success. I mean, certainly the Department of Injustice and their FBI enforcers (the American Gestapo) would have no truck with following social rules of behavior advocated by Mrs. Clinton and former President Obama.
Mr. Alinsky was an eloquent and charming author. Rules has a calm, sincere mentoring tone, as if one’s father or grandfather is explaining how the unfair world works, the continual struggle of the Haves and Have Nots, and ways in which Have Nots can become Haves. He freely uses American radicals from the 1770s as examples. It is a page turner and excellent pabulum for the ignorant and naïve. Rules for Radicals has nine chapters, of which chapter seven, ‘Tactics,’ will be our focus and the 13 rules of power tactics Alinsky provides.
Rule One: “Power is not only what you have, but what the enemy thinks you have.” Power comes from money and people. Since the Have Nots lack money, they must depend on mass movement to “club their way.”
Rule Two: “Never go outside the experience of your people.” They will become confused, fearful, and will disperse.
Rule Three: “Whenever possible go outside of the experience of the enemy.” Impose on the enemy confusion, fear, and dispersion.
Rule Four: “Make the enemy live up to their own book of rules. You can kill themwith this, for they can no more obey their own rules than the Christian church can live up to Christianity.”
Rule Five: “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon. It is impossible to counterattack ridicule. Also it infuriates the opposition, who then react to your advantage.”
[Note that in combination Rules 4 & 5 define Projection, or Projectionism, used by Progressives and other Marxists. Hillary Clinton, Nancy Pelosi, and Chuck Schumer have made Projection into an art form.]
Rule Six: “A good tactic is one that your people enjoy.” Militant action must be fun, refer to ANTIFA, BLM, Nazi, and Stalinist atrocities.
Rule Seven: “A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag.” If the atrocities mentioned in Rule Six go on too long, even the most violent radical will become bored.
Rule Eight: “Keep the pressure on, with different tactics and actions, and utilize all events of the period for your purpose.” If you have been watching, Florida Governor DeSantis has used this rule very effectively to keep the news media running in circles.
Rule Nine: “The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself.” The Democrat Party, misnamed Progressives, have dismissed this rule allowing ANTIFA, BLM, and rampant criminal violence to be more terrifying than the threat. Indeed, they follow the Marcuse Maxim: “Liberating tolerance [means] intolerance against movements from the right and toleration of movements from the left. As to the scope of this tolerance and intolerance: … it would extend to the stage of action as well as of discussion and propaganda, of deed as well as of word.” In other words, any and every action taken by Marxists is acceptable; every action taken by Americans is unacceptable.
Rule Ten: “A major premise for tactics is the development of operations that will maintain a constant pressure upon the opposition.” This is a corollary, not a redundancy, to Rule Eight. Constant pressure elicits a reaction from the opposition which provokes more action, that is pressure from the Left, which in turn elicits more reaction from the opposition. Therefore, Rule Six is sustained and Rule Seven avoided.
Rule Eleven: “If you push a negative hard and deep enough it will break through into its counterside; this is based on the principle that every positive has its negative.” In other words, keep advocating the negative idea, such as Russian Collusion, the COVID reduction value of masks, or a useless COVID vaccine and it will become positive, i.e. true. Hitler called it telling a big lie, not a small one, until it is accepted as truth.
Rule Twelve: “The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative.” This means, never give in to an enemy who suddenly agrees to your demands. It creates a situation which, to a certain extent, can disarm the opposition. Their terms have been agreed to, so what next?
Rule Thirteen: “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” When Alinsky wrote, he believed that the complexity of modern society made identifying (targeting) the enemy for freezing and attacking could be difficult. For the 21st century Marxists destroying our country, this rule has become obsolete. The targets, the enemy, for them is everyone who disagrees with Woke Marxist ideology.
As to Professor Marcuse’s Maxim, when one long time Marxist, Jane Fonda, was asked on The View what options were available to deter pro-life politicians, she responded, “murder.” The audience was shocked, and Joyless Bahar quickly interjected “She was only kidding!” But there was no look of mirth on Fonda’s face and not one person at the table contested the remark. The violence – destruction of property, bombings, arson, vicious assaults, and murder – advocated by Herbert Marcuse, a German Marxist who found sanctuary from the Nazis in the U.S., exhibited by ANTIFA and BLM, and supported by the Biden Administration and a few governors, IS ABSOLUTELY WRONG.
But what is to be done? Well, as Mrs. Clinton, Barack Obama, and undoubtedly many others of their ilk, have blessed and followed Alinsky’s methods, Americans should adopt them immediately to save the country from ruin.
