The nature of Barack Obama’s reign as president can probably best be described as that of a national community organizer. If one reads Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals and studies how community organizers do their work, it becomes evident that Barack Obama has reflected that pattern during the past seven plus years.
The basic work of a community organizer is to disrupt society and create chaos as a means of advancing a political agenda. As Rahm Emanuel famously said, “Never let a serious crisis go to waste.” If none exists, the job of the community organizer is to create one.
A major means of creating chaos is generating divisions in race, gender, and other categories. Using the strategy of “divide and conquer,” they work to pit one group against another, creating animosity and strife, thus destroying the fabric of a society.
The objective of these tactics is to allow a minority group to impose its will on the majority by devious means. The ultimate goal of the community organizer is not to help the cause of that minority. They are merely tools used to achieve the community organizers purposes. As one looks at the history of their achievements, often it is discovered that community organizers leave these people in worse rather than better conditions. Instead, the goal of the community organizer is political, to gain power for himself and his movement.
Community organizers have reduced their moral code to one simple principle:, do whatever it takes to achieve your objective. In Rules for Radicals, Alinsky describes this morality as follows:
The man of action views the issue of means and ends in pragmatic and strategic terms. He has no other problem; he thinks only of his actual resources and the possibilities of various choices of action. He asks of ends only whether they are achievable and worth the cost; of means, only whether they will work.
In other words, they are totally morally unrestricted in the pursuit of their objectives. They will lie, cheat, steal, or engage in any other type of activity that will produce the result they seek.
Once chaos is created, they then steer the discourse to blame the parties they want to target. It occurred to me a long time ago that blame for anything is not a matter of what happens but of who sets the narrative. Any crisis can be framed so as to blame whoever one chooses. With the riots in Baltimore in which rioters were permitted to burn out businesses the blame was shifted to America in general. Our society had caused their rage. In Ferguson the police were to blame.
The description above of the work of a community organizer manifests itself as the major theme of Brock Obama’s presidency. He has created chaos through trashing the Constitution and overstepping the bounds of his office. He has pitted one group against another and has used the resulting chaos for his political ends, using whatever means necessary. He is highly skilled at shifting the blame to his chosen targets. When a shooting occurs, before the smoke clears Obama is there to blame the guns.
For a community organizer it is a dream come true to possess the power of the presidency to do this destructive work, and Obama has proved himself a consummate success.
All of these factors manifested themselves in the disruption of the Trump rally on Friday night. Hundreds of rioters, many believed to have been paid thugs, created chaos. The resulting strife was along racial lines. Ultimately blame was assigned by many to Trump and not the rioters or those who organized and paid them. This resulted in Donald Trump being denied his First Amendment rights.
Whether or not Pres. Obama had any direct connection with this disturbance, this is the America he has fostered over the past seven years. In the larger sense, this is his creation.
The good news is that the American people are starting to catch on. They are seeing his fingerprints all over this type of crisis. They are coming to understand that the media merely serves as a mouthpiece for a community organizer. Even more important, they are growing weary of his unethical tactics and self-serving objectives. Unless he uses his community organizer tactics to create sufficient chaos to declare martial law and disrupt the presidential process, from every indication in about nine months America may have a president in the White House instead of a community organizer.
