Silencing Saul and Saving America

“At what point then is the approach of danger to be expected? I answer, if it ever reach us, it must spring up amongst us. . It cannot come from abroad. If destruction be out lot, we must ourselves be its author and finisher. As a nation of freemen, we must live through all time, or die by suicide.”  – Abraham Lincoln


Although Saul Alinsky died in 1972, his legacy lives on.  It manifests itself through leftist ideology, agendas, organizational strategies promoting cultural revolution and the socialistic transformation of our society. Alinsky was a community organizer who created a guide for organizations to gain legal; economic; and political power by any means necessary.  He attempted to incite people in grassroots organizations to take direct action to affect often unidentified change. One of the tools in his arsenal was to unite groups by generating conflict and through this conflict provide the organization with a specific enemy to confront and oppose.

His stated organizational efforts were to elevate minority rights and bring about the betterment of society.

They were introduced under the guise of humanitarian concerns and social justice. But we cannot be misled. His ambitions were not altruistic. He portrayed himself to be a radical. He did not promote reform, but advocated revolution. His intent was not to improve society.   But rather to destroy the very societal structures and institutions that ensure public safety and national security. Divisiveness must prevail over unity. Violence was accepted as necessary if it advanced the goals of the organization.

If there is any doubt as to his malevolent motives, it is removed by the dedication in his book, Rules for Radicals: A Pragmatic Primer for Realistic Radicals:

“Lest we forget at least an over-the-shoulder acknowledgment to the very first radical: from all our legends, mythology, and history (and who is to know where mythology leaves off and history begins-or which is which), the first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom—Lucifer”. 

Saul Alinsky’s organizational guide is set forth in his rules. This is a summary of the rules relevant to our discussion:

  1. “Power is not only what you have but what the enemy thinks you have.”
  2. “Never go outside the expertise of your people.”
  3. “Whenever possible go outside the expertise of the enemy.”
  4. “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.”
  5. “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon. There is no defense and it is impossible to counterattack.”
  6. “The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself.”
  7. “The major premise for tactics is the development of operations that will maintain a constant pressure upon the opposition.”
  8. “The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative.”
  9. “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.”

A common thread that permeates Alinsky’s ideological principles is that the established government and our foundational values are so intrinsically evil that they cannot be resurrected, but must be destroyed. Today his theme is amplified by the left/progressives in their preoccupation with cancel culture tactics and the obliteration of our historical heritage.

Alinsky believes that patriotic heroes of the past should be demonized.  History must be rewritten so the revolution can begin with a clean slate. Governmental institutions that safeguard our peace, prosperity, public safety, and national security shouldn’t be strengthened.  They should be defunded or abolished and replaced with “reimagined” undescribed utopian governmental entities.

Antiquated Constitutional principles must be replaced with foundational premises more in keeping with contemporary societal norms. Outdated laws must be rescinded to make way for the implementation of progressive programs. Democratic and capitalistic fundamentals must be sacrificed so that a socialistic society can be realized. Most important of all, governmental leadership at all levels must be maintained by the liberal elite and institutionally preserved for generations to come.
Saul Alinsky is quoted as saying “Never let a crisis go to waste,” That advice is followed religiously by the progressive left. Their simplistic crisis resolution formula, however, always adheres to their partisan political agenda. It rarely leads to successful responsive or preventive solutions to the disaster.

The history of revolutions, warns us that it is ultimately just trading one master for another.  Even the proletariat revolutions of the twentieth century left the majority of the proletariat still grubbing in the dirt and building their masters’ new castles.
Ironically, the two most devastating crises facing our nation today – the southern border chaos and the rampant nationwide surge in violent and drug-related crimes – are not even recognized by the current administration as emergency national priorities. Arguably, this is because these are crises of their own making and they do not want to accept accountability for their consequences. The left has violated the Alinsky rule of never going beyond the expertise of their followers.
Progressive activists have no expertise in securing international borders or running law enforcement agencies. Their refusal to acknowledge or accept responsibility for their organizational efforts to sabotage, defund and abolish the institutions that safeguard our freedoms is unconscionable. Demonizing and de-platforming all conservative leaders and making accusations that all law enforcement officers are guilty of police brutality caused by inherent racism are not conducive to the establishment of a more perfect union.

The fundamental flaw in the adoption of the Saul Alinsky ideological tactics is that they are not based upon the Judeo-Christian values of our founding fathers. The American people are not willing to unravel the moral fabric of our society. There has been no voter mandate to overthrow our government or cause a radical transformation of our way of life. For these reasons, the Alinsky radical movement will ultimately fail.
The abiding principles of American political faith are adeptly described in The American Creed:
“I believe in the United States of America as a government of the people, by the people, for the people, whose just powers are derived from the consent of the governed, a democracy in a republic, a sovereign nation of many sovereign states, a perfect union, one and inseparable, established upon those principles of freedom, equality, justice, humanity, for which American patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes.

I, therefore, believe it is my duty to my country to love it, to support its Constitution, to obey its laws, to respect its flag, and to defend it against all enemies.”
Victims of the Alinsky rule regime who have been targeted, polarized, and personally vilified as enemies of the people because of their love of country must refuse to be censored and canceled. The true enemies of the republic have to be identified.

Their principles must be understood, and their nation destroying operational strategies opposed.

Silence Saul and Save America by acting for America!
