“We’re being out-Alinskyed by the anti-Alinskys”

Ben Jealous, NAACP president via National Journal Online – Cross Talk.

Well, duh…

Alinsky cooked up his rules for radicals to force an agenda on a population that was fundamentally opposed to everything he stood for.  The anti-Alinskys are getting way more traction than the Alinskyites because the anti-Alinsky movement, principally the Tea Party and conservative movements, are what Alinsky himself always pretended to support but never actually participated in, a mass grassroots opposition movement against an oppressive government.  There’s something the Left might want to add to their bag of tricks – a party platform that doesn’t require the majority of the population to subjugate themselves to an oppressive dictatorship.  Novel idea, liberty.  It’s like something to give people a reason to live.
