In the immortal words of Obama's political mentor, Saul Alinsky, an organizer's job is to "rub raw the sores of discontent" and mount a socialist revolution. In the 1930s and 40s, Alinsky called his revolutionary forces "People's Organizations," but once the word "people" became so tainted by the brutalities of communist "people's republics," he changed the code word to "community," hoping to make it sound more American and neighborly.
This is exactly what I was talking about when I posted liberal democRAT HORSESHIT in response to liberal maggot Joe Klein's claim that community organizers do the lord's work.
In claiming some sort of altruistic motivation for his community organizing years, Barack Obama has not only applied lipstick to this pig of a dirty job, he's adorned it in enough gaudy finery to pass it off as a drag queen.Obama's claiming professional rabblerousing is a public service does not make it so.Personally ameliorating a single ill ain't in the organizer's job description.Which might explain why Barack Obama was not required to actually fix anything to become so highly regarded as a successful community organizer in the Alinsky tradition.This community-organizing shtick that Obama says was the "best education" he ever had, was the brainchild of Saul Alinsky, who defined success as nothing more than to persistently and tenaciously "fan the latent hostilities of many of the people to the point of overt expression."...Governor Palin brought to public attention the very crux of community organizing. To be successful at the job, one need not produce a single, positive result. One need not perform a single objective task for the community at large. One need not produce one shred of real change or reform, nor a single act of charity. In fact, the only thing one need do to proclaim success, is to leave people more angry and demanding of a government fix-it-all than they were before the organizer arrived in the midst of their community.Four years on Chicago's south side, getting paid to learn the sacred art of professional complaining, making the lives of others seem more miserable than they could have ever imagined and then teach them to lay every ounce of the blame at government's feet, does help to explain candidate Obama's tendency to whine, wallow and excessively complain.In this, Obama perfectly exemplifies the definition of socialism, coined by Ludwig Von Mises in the 1930s:Socialism is the grandiose rationalization of petty resentments."The grandiose rationalization of petty resentments."Now, that's at least one thing about which there remains little doubt. Barack Obama seems to have that act down pat.
