The Covington Boys vs. Rules for Radicals
This Covington, Ky., High School business in Washington DC is another example of how the “Left” is guided by Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals. Marxist garbage written in the 1940’s and 50’s on how to steal from the producers for redistribution to the poor, the homeless and today, most certainly, the millions of illegals who have invaded our borders.
Saul Alinsky did not advocate violence for his time but, the modern antifa’s have done that for our times because they see a socialist victory on the horizon, if that terrible Donald Trump can only be removed, and quickly. They must be very careful with violence, that’s a two way street.
The media’s feeding frenzy over the Covington Boys followed Alinsky’s Rule No.13: “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” By the misuse of “Twitter,” the SJW’s network, the task becomes easier. The goal of media is to cut off support for the Covington Boy’s by shaming them and their defenders thus isolating those awful Catholic Christian boys from any public sympathy. Alinsky said: “Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions” thus the ‘Tweet’ threats to Covington HS student Nick Sandmann, his parents and others. Those “Tweets” are probably machine generated anyway.
Following Rule No.12 of Alinsky’s opus to Radicalism: “The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative.” He meant, “Never let the enemy score points because you’re caught without a solution to the problem.” For this media constructed incident, that meant interviewing Sandmann and elicit an apology out of him, a “gotcha” proposition.
Thus, Sandmann permitted himself to be interviewed on the “Today Show” by network talking head Savannah Guthrie who asked him if “he felt the need to apologize.” To his credit, he said: “As far as standing there, I have every right to do so, My position is that I was not disrespectful of Mr. Phillips,” referring course to the Indian banging on his pots.
To attack the Covington High School boys was an opportunity presented by the news worthy women’s pro-life march on the Mall that attracts not only American citizens concerned with the murders of millions of American babies by abortion, but also attracts the lice and fleas of the drum banging losers whose have dedicated themselves to disruption of the process.
I do not give Nathan Phillips, the Indian percussionists and alleged USMC Vietnam War veteran any credit for being associated with the Saul Alinsky bunch, he’s not that bright, but he is dedicated to his purpose and being brown skinned with stringy long hair did, for propaganda purposes, qualify him as a hero of the day because he was ‘disrespected’ by the Covington boys. Subsequent video tapes supplied by others present quickly changed the atmosphere, showed the truth and opened the door a bit, allowing us a peek inside Leftists dementia.
Two of Alinsky’s rules the media failed to observe was No. 7 that warns: “A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag.” Don’t become old news,” and No. 5, that say’s: “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.” The media lost control of their message.
Apparently, the humorless Democrats and Leftist media propagandists no longer understand the power of humor. It is being used against them by astute conservative observers and they don’t know how to respond. What’s the use of having good rules if the other guy can use them too?
Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em!
