Community Organizing 101: Attack the Leftwing Ideology with Ridicule

I got up this morning planning to write another serious Community organizing lesson in my on-going series on how to take back, or save (if it’s not lost yet), your local community from the Socialists’ agenda.

My plan was to write about getting involved with local elections, but that can wait because I opened “Saturday funnies” from reader Paul, a friend who collects truisms, and laughed.

If you have never read Saul Alinsky’s ‘Rules for Radicals,‘ it is a must because you can adapt and use the Lefts’ tactics against them.

I’ve been writing about Obama’s teacher and inspiration, Alinsky, since my earliest days at Refugee Resettlement Watch back in 2008, see here.

When first encountering Alinsky most people are put-off by his dedication page which reads:

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

Don’t let that deter you. To fight back effectively, you really need to read the book!

He wasn’t able to completely escape Dowd’s psychoanalysis, but he sent a message that clearly stated that no one was to make fun of him and that is because he knew that “ridicule” could destroy someone’s political ambitions faster than just about anything!

So that brings me to Alinsky Rule #5, one of his best.  It is non-violent and powerful because Leftists have NO sense of humor.

“Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon. There is no defense. It is almost impossible to counterattack ridicule. Also it infuriates the opposition, who then react to your advantage.”

I am reminded of when Obama first came on the political scene and the very Leftwing writer at the New York Times, Maureen Dowd, made fun of his ears.

He went ballistic and attempted to cut off that avenue for ridicule immediately and never had much to do with her after that.


In her October 21 [2006] New York Times column (subscription required), Maureen Dowd wrote that potential Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Barack Obama (IL) is “intriguingly imperfect,” citing as one example the fact that “[h]is ears stick out.”


Enough of that; you get my drift.  Here are a few funnies from Paul.  I don’t know where they came from, so I hope I’m not publishing someone’s hard work without attribution, but usually such memes are fair-game for dissemination.

If you are creating your own local blog or website as I suggested in last week’s lesson, it is imperative that you include humor!

Remember that when you are working against local and state Democrat candidates in the next election, ridicule is a powerful weapon.

So for a laugh right now….

And, here is my personal favorite….

If you have never heard James O’Keefe (Project Veritas) talk about his start when he reported to Rutgers University that he, being of Irish ancestry, was offended by the Lucky Charms box in his (and my) alma mater’s cafeteria, watch:
