If the name of Saul Alinsky is mentioned in regard to Obama, the media immediately circles the wagons and goes into a defensive mode. Bill Moyers describes Saul Alinsky a seeker of social justice, elevating him to some sort of saint. Obama’s association with Saul Alinsky’s philosophies is much a part of who he is. In fact, the media takes parts of Alinsky’s writings to bolster Obama!
Political activist Saul Alinsky defined the “organizer” writing, “He does not have a fixed truth – truth to him is relative and changing.” His organizer was turned into “community organizer” by the media, giving it great credibility. At the same time Alinsky gave the “community organizer” unlimited leeway with truth. His truth is allowed major and constant fluctuations and inconsistencies depending upon the organizer’s mood.
Obama was constructed from Saul Alinsky’s book “Rule for Radicals” which was dedicated to Lucifer who Alinsky describes as, “The first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment!” Obama the student, disciple then professor of the Saul Alinsky philosophy uses “Rule for Radicals” as his playbook, his presidential strategy!
Alinsky preached, “The organizer is in a true sense reaching for the highest level for which a man can reach—to create, to be a “great creator,” to play God.” This is an image the media took up, portraying Obama as a messiah like figure! An image Donna Brazile, democrat strategist sought to fortify when comparing Governor Palin’s experience to Obama’s lack of experience saying, “Pontius Pilot was a governor, Jesus Christ was a community organizer.” Obama readily embraces, perhaps believes these deified characterizations. The Reverend Martin Luther King would have winced at such audacity!
Newsweek’s Evan Thomas June 2009 declared, “Reagan (at the 1984 D-Day commemoration) was all about America, and you talked about it. Obama is, “We are above that now. We’re not just parochial, we’re not just chauvinistic, we’re not just provincial. We stand for something’ I mean in a way, Obama’s standing above his country, above-above the world. He’s sort of God. He’s going to bring all different sides together.” What happened to that? Obama turned out to be the “Great Divider” not the “Great Uniter”!
Magazines played up this image placing holy like light around Obama’s head on the covers of magazines. Don’t forget the Greek Columns reminiscent of Mt. Olympus used during his first presidential campaign. Obama’s declaration of lowering the seas and temperatures played into this god like image to which many have fallen prey (to pray).
“Community Organizer”, “Great Creator” all images created by Alinsky, promoted and perpetuated by the media! The 2013 presidential inaugural week Newsweek Magazine hailed Obama “The Second Coming”! Likening Obama to God has been fast and furious!
