In 1971, notorious community organizer Saul Alinsky published his now infamous RULES FOR RADICALS with the intent of enabling the readers to change the world into what they want it to be… that is, to consolidate power for the ones seeking it (by convincing communities to get out to vote and help them advance their agenda). Used as a guidebook, RULES FOR RADICALS laid down the war plans for the radical leftist assault on our political system. Hillary Clinton idolized Alinksy, studied him, called him her mentor, and introduced him on her college campus as “my friend.”
As a preface, Alinsky dedicated his book to the figure who inspired him to write it – Lucifer. Look what he wrote:
“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.”
It is important to note why Alinsky wrote the manual (the playbook for radicals – ie, liberals/Democrats) — to win a kingdom. Not just “a” kingdom, but “his” kingdom. He acknowledges this right in his preface. If political groups can use his rules effectively, and mobilize the poor, minorities, inner-cities, etc, they can win elections and gain the political control (“the kingdom”) they seek.
This is what Hillary seeks – her own “kingdom” where she is above the law and has supreme power to do whatever she wants. This is what she sought ever since her years in college, in law school, and in government with her husband. She was merely biding her time, laying the groundwork, raising money, buying political allies, and consolidating her power and position within the Democratic Party and among political progressives and liberals.
Well done, Diane!
