Reading the Australian editorial this morning it struck me, to use language the left understands, Milo Yiannopoulos has “culturally appropriated” Saul Alinsky’s rule number four, of his Rules for Radicals and turned it back on them.
Rule four holds that “ridicule is man’s most potent weapon” and it is Yiannopoulos’s ability to articulate his position with self deprecating good humour and ridicule of the opposition that drives and turbo charges the rage and unhinged fury of the feral flotsam and jetsam, rabble without a cause, protesting on the streets of Melbourne on Monday night. They can’t handle it.
Until recently it has been restricted mainly to the university campus but is now going mainstream and as we saw on several occasions during the SSM campaign, it is a re-emergence of the violent, intolerant, fascist, Brown Shirt style behaviour reminiscent of Nazi Germany. Five will get you ten that if allowed to succeed we’ll see more of the same.
