A chilling comparison: Obama & Saul Alinsky's Rules for Radicals

Elections, Obama 2008, Truth

On Tuesday, I listened to Mark Levin. (WISN radio, 9pm) I like Mark Levin, but what he said sickened me.

I challenge you to listen to the podcast from 10/14 The Mark Levin Show. The first half of the broadcast is primarily about how Obama's campaign is straight out of Alinsky's book.

Mark's synopsis of his broadcast, (My emphasis)

On Tuesday’s Mark Levin Show: Mark goes through Saul Alinsky’s book, “Rules for Radicals,” and it is stunning how similar Obama’s beliefs are to what is written in the book. When it comes to Obama, we are supposed to pretend that his relationships with so many un-American and socialist people don’t exist. And if one brings up his relationships, then they are dubbed a racist. But the fact is that the rhetoric that the far left is using in this campaign is frightening. Saul Alinsky is openly telling people how to start a quiet revolution, and it is eerily similar to the semantics and wording that the Democratic party is currently using. In the 2nd hour, author Mark Steyn calls into the show and discusses with Mark why Obama’s relationships with people like William Ayres should be talked about, and also the smear tactics from the Obama campaign. You can pick up his book, “America Alone” now in stores.

Levin goes through the Alinsky strategy for revolution. Create despair so that you can offer hope. The terms HOPE and CHANGE are used endlessly in Rules for Radicals. Destroy the middle class by appealing to it.

Sound familiar?
