AmeriCAN-DO Attitude

Are you an AmeriCAN or an AmeriCAN'T?

We are in a Political Fight to the Death with People Who Will Stop at Nothing

Hey ace and all the rest of you right-wing squishes out there… PAY.ATTENTION:

Saul Alinski wrote a book called Rules for Radicals. Hillary Clinton wrote about it in her senior’s thesis. And if Hillary Clinton learned from it, Barack Obama taught from it: the term community organizer was coined by Alinski and was the centerpiece of his theory that the socialization of America could best be accomplished from within the system since Americans were alert to revolutions forced upon them from the outside.

One of the Rules for Radicals is Make the enemy live up to his/her own book of rules. Think about the genius of that. Just let that sink in. When a Republican has an ethics scandal, it’s “hypocrisy” and “double standards” and all the rest. But when a Clinton or a Pelosi or a Charley Rangel or a Chris Dodd or a Barney Frank or a William Jefferson has an ethics scandal, no one bats an eye. Why? Because of course they’re immoral! They’re Democrats.

Alinski could see that moral people have to be held to moral standards when immoral people do not. We’d better learn a lesson from this, right quick. Here’s an example of the kind of lesson good and decent people must learn about people like Saul Alinski and his followers:

The Battle of Guadalcanal was the first real test of the US Marine Corps in World War II. There was real anger toward the Japanese after Pearl Harbor and the atrocities they had committed in China and to American prisoners at Bataan, but the Marines had not yet dealt with them face to face and still reserved a professional soldier’s decency towards surrendering troops.

A Marine recon unit reported seeing Japanese troops flying a white flag on an isolated spit of land near Guadalcanal, and so A Marine named Frank Goettge asked for volunteers to help rescue these surrendering Japanese soldiers. 25 men stepped forward, and when they reached the beach the Marines warily went ashore to help the trapped Japanese. Once they were all within range, the Japanese opened fire with machine guns, and after hours of fighting only one Marine was able to escape. As he swam away he looked over his shoulder, and saw the flashing Samurai swords of the Japanese officers as they hacked at and beheaded the survivors. When reinforcements returned they found that their buddies had been mutilated and dismembered, and any Marine corps tattoos had been hacked off their arms and stuffed into their mouths.

The Marines never treated the Japense the same way after that.

Alinski and his followers want you to believe that if you fight dirty in response to people fighting dirty with you, then you have lost your morals and in fact your identity. But that’s a lie.

We are in a political fight to the death with people who will stop at nothing – and I’m not talking about your average decent Democrat, but rather these Alinski radicals. And if we don’t face the same realization as those Marines on Guadalcanal and give back as brutally as we have taken, then we will lose.

Which is what they want. And if we do lose to these kind of tactics, there will be no more decent people left in politics. As of today, we’re one short already.

  1. Agree completely here and on Ace. Having some recent trouble with my left hand so typing too much is contraindicated.

    Without that release, my head is about to explode. I’m a conservative, not a Republican. The Republicans, to quote Ronald Maximus, left me long ago.

    • I know exactly what you mean. I am a conservative American, not a Republican. I left the party unofficially in 2006 and then officially when they nominated John McCain and started smearing Sarah Palin.

      I’ve been frustrated beyond belief with so many things with the Right and the GOP lately, mainly the utter unwillingness to fight back and just being so dense to not realize the political war in which we find ourselves. I so enjoy the blog authors over at Ace of Spades (well, most of the time), but they — especially ace — frustrate me immensely with their “we can’t say this or that, we can’t say this or that in this or that way, we can’t do this or that, because it makes us look bad to the left and mass media, etc etc etc” attitudes. In addition to not being willing to fight back, they actually take down those on our own side who are fighting back (Palin, Rush, etc). I just don’t get them. Playing nice will NOT stop this BS from happening. The game has changed. And I think Bill Whittle nails it.

      I hope someone at Ace of Spades talks about Bill Whittle’s great article/video essay. Granted, I suspect they will post about it and then pontificate for 20 paragraphs about why we can’t do what Bill Whittle suggests, for fear of upsetting the ‘moderates’ and Independents, as those guys always whine about.

    • Yeah, sorry, I don’t know how to modify this to get comments to be easier. I’m not sure why the handle shows up like that. Ugh, oh well.

      UPDATE: Okay, just figured out how to modify your handle and did so. I’m still not sure why it showed up like that, but at least I can modify it.
