Back in the late 60’s Saul Alinsky a Chicago community organiser and hero of a more latter day Chicago community organiser and Alinsky acolyte, Barrack Obama and Presidential wannabe, Hillary Clinton, developed his Rules for Radicals and wrote them up in a rather slim 200 page booklet.
There are only 13 rules, they’re not complicated or in any way academic and expressed in just a few short sentences. They’re very easy to follow and in the present environment you see them swirling around and being applied almost daily.
Take rule number 13 for example.
Rule 13. “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions.
This is what the feral left did to Margaret Court last year when she spoke out against SSM. In more recent weeks we’ve seen similar pile ons in the US with the salivating, baying dogs attacking, harassing and getting up close and personal with various employees of the Trump White House when out at restaurants with family in their private time. These dog of war have been set loose, aided and abetted by an embittered Democrat political class from the very top of California congresswoman and demagogue and rabble rouser Maxine Waters encouraging such attacks.
There have been a number of occasions in recent times when the opportunity has arisen where Alinsky’s Rules can be turned back on the left.
For example number Rule 4.
Rule 4.“Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.”
Ok. Lets pick that apart. An example of this we’ve seen recently was when Paul Bongiorno, a contributor to the ABC tweeted that Warren Mundine was an Uncle Tom. Neither the ABC nor Bongiorno apologised or thought even necessary.
Another was the Tom Ballard “comedy” skit again on the ABC where the Australian Conservative candidate in the Batman by election Kevin Bailey was referred to as a c**t (un-bleeped) and although there was something of an apology over the phone to Bailey from the ABC, they insisted that “the apology did not mean it was wrong to broadcast the segment and says it is following due processes” and that “The material was reviewed by the program teams prior to broadcast and posting, ensuring both complied with the ABC’s editorial standards on harm and offences and also the appropriate classification standards,”
Another “comedy” skit AGAIN on the ABC on the show Black Comedy featured several aboriginals sitting around on the couch saying that white people are c***ts
This was on the back of a 7 Sunrise segment where the discussion centred on the adoption of aboriginal children. Again, it was all un-bleeped and no apology from the ABC
Further examples are the outrage we’ve witnessed on various occasions when a conservative government tries to intervene and fix the social decay of domestic violence and grog in remote aboriginal camps. The silence from the left of the rape of a two year old girl at Tennant Creek was deafening. Compare that silence to the nationwide candle lit vigils and emoting over the rape and murder of comedian Eurydice Dixon in inner city Melbourne recently.
Then only this week we have the New York Times newly inducted Sarah Jeong outed for her racist tweets against white people with tweets like:
“…white people [are] only fit to live underground like grovelling goblins”, and “cancelwhitepeople” and “Dumbass fucking white people marking up the internet with their opinions like dogs pissing on fire hydrants..” and Oh man it’s kind of sick how much joy I get out of being cruel to old white men
The NYT has no problem with any of this and talks about perspective and context. No apology and no firing either because she fits right in with what they’re about.
All of the foregoing are examples where Alinsky’s rule number 4 can be turned back.
Finally Alinsky’s rule number 5.
Rule number 5 states that “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.” There is no defense. It’s irrational. It’s infuriating. It also works as a key pressure point to force the enemy into concessions.
An example this week of how to deploy this tactic in reverse and combat the Victorian Health and Human Services Department wacky “they day” concept is with rule number 5. The idea being to turn their own “rules” back on them. Notice how the sewer comedians and swamp dwellers in the US and their slag heap, ABC dwelling sewer rat brothers and sister and so called “comedians” in Australia, all use their brand of “humour” to attack conservatives.
Turn it back on them. Hit them with ridicule, derision, humiliation and particularly defiance. Take the piss and send them up gutless.
