Michelle Obama Took Lines From Alinsky’s “Rules For Radicals” in DNC Speech
What to make of Michelle Obama’s use the terms, “The world as it is” and “The world as it should be” in last night’s speech? Where are those lines from?
Barack stood up that day,” talking about a visit to Chicago neighborhoods, “and spoke words that have stayed with me ever since. He talked about “The world as it is” and “The world as it should be…”
And, “All of us driven by a simple belief that the world as it is just won’t do – that we have an obligation to fight for the world as it should be.”
Try Chapter 2 of Saul Alinsky’s book, ‘Rules for Radicals’. Alinsky was a radical leftist/socialist union and community orgainizer in the sixties, seventies and eighties. He was a hero to the Obama’s.
Here’s an excerpt from Saul Alinsky’s book, Rules for Radicals
“The means-and-ends moralists, constantly obsessed with the ethics of the means used by the Have-Nots against the Haves, should search themselves as to their real political position. In fact, they are passive — but real — allies of the Haves…The most unethical of all means is the non-use of any means… The standards of judgment must be rooted in the whys and wherefores of life as it is lived, the world as it is, not our wished-for fantasy of the world as it should be.“
The Obama’s ARE radical leftists, so I don’t see much surprise in her quoting Alinsky. Do you? It is part of their feeling of superiority, their feeling they are part of the intellectual elite, that she boldly lifted the passages feeling, I am certain, confident no one but her fellow leftists would recognize Alinsky’s work.
Michelle Obama can smile all she wants, (even speak truth about her kids–they are adorable!) but she remains an angry radical leftist, willing to do anything, say anything, to grab power. Focus groups show people perceive her anger, bubbling just below the surface.
