Newt Gingrich: President Barack Obama is “Legitimately and Authentically a Saul Alinsky Radical” (Video)

Newt goes there.
The former Speaker told an audience in Iowa, “President Obama is legitimately and authentically a Saul Alinsky radical.”
Freedom’s Lighthouse reported:

From the video: Speaking in Iowa, Newt Gingrich says the “core argument” conservatives have with President Barack Obama is that he is “legitimately and authentically a Saul Alinsky Radical.”

Of course, Newt is right.

Barack Obama taught the principles of Saul Alinsky in Chicago. Notice the flow chart indicating the flow of money and power out of productive businesses (“CORP”) and into the political class (“MAYOR”). The heading at the top reads “POWER ANALYSIS”. The sub-heading reads “RELATIONSHIPS BUILD ON SELF INTEREST”. The symbol on the arrow between “CORP” and “MAYOR” is the “$” sign.

Saul Alinsky came up with the idea of power analysis, which looks at relationships built on self-interest between corporations, banks and utilities. Barack Obama taught students in Chicago the Alinsky Principles.

    Bout time somebody started talking real. I’m sick of everybody pussyfooting around facts that are easily, abundantly, available. Through the horse’s own mouth, even.

    Not being able to call Obama the things he really is is just more PC constraints.

    I really to like Gingrich when he gets into professorial mode.

  • Valerie

    You know what would drive the Democrats nuts if Gingrich were the Republican candidate as either president or VP? Gingrich is the kind of intellectual that they pretended that BO is. Gingrich could school BO, via both speeches and debate.

    It’s be like a bullfight.

    Say what you want about Gingrich, but he’s already proved he can landslide an arch liberal.
    The only thing that can save “Obama” is if conservatives get all “purist” while their country burns.

    Honestly, I have listened to Cain ten years ago when he sub’d for the nominally libertarian talky show mouth Neil Boortz and loved his style. When Cain peaked I thought Newt would be a good VP for him before their debate (Newt being a policy wonk and all that).

    Say what you like about Newt, but at least he is willing to talk a good game. Mittens isn’t even willing to do that. Hell, I don’t think Mittens is even capable of doing that.

    One of the reasons I have always liked Newt – and I don’t like most politicians – is because he has always been willing to tell it like it is. One of the reasons I have never liked Romney is because he isn’t capable of telling it like it is – if he even recognizes it.

    It is EXACTLY because of statements like this and much much more that I like candidate Newt. He is the ONLY one that will take it straight to the Loser in Chief. He is not afraid of the media or anything. He has already been there and done that. He knows how to handle them. When Newt was on Hannity the other night, I felt like I was watching the future president. There were no uhs or ahs or hesitation. He just answers the questions. It is real easy to answer questions when you don’t have to remember to cover lies and are telling the truth. GINGRICH 2012

    When Professor Obama views our free market through the lens of “POWER ANALYSIS”, he will then totally misunderstand the following idea that was so well stated by Adam Smith in the Wealth of Nations:

    “It is not from the benevolence of the butcher, the brewer, or the baker that we expect our dinner, but from their regard to their own interest. ”

    Socialists believe that we each should (and must) live at the expense of others, and this can only come about via compulsion and coercion. The free market can only exist under the rule of law and cannot function unless it is voluntary and mutually beneficial. Thus, socialism is shown to be utterly antithetical to the free market. Socialism must be power-oriented. The free market must be principle-oriented.

    Moreover, the moment that participants in a free market see to secure a government blessing or some other advantage, they start to distort the market. While they may enrich themselves, they do so at the expense of others, and they start to degrade the efficiency and mutual prosperity of the market. In the process, they make us all less prosperous, in a way that is similar to what happens when community organizers seek to distort free market decisions to the advantage of their demographic group or ideological clique.

    The free market is based on the mutual offering of superior value to the parties involved. Since socialism is based on coveting and theft of the wealth of one party to the advantage of another. Because of this, it must of necessity violate two of the Ten Commandments. Moreover, socialism can only destroy wealth so any claims that it is a superior system that is more just and will lead to the perfect socialist man, and thus to the long hoped for secular Utopia is a blatant lie, and thus it violates yet another Commandment. It is sad to see many Christians who are ignorant of these simple truths.

    Who cares what George Will thinks. In January 2009 Will hosted a dinner in his Chevy Chase Md. home for pres elect Barak Obama. Guests included Bill Kristol, David Brooks, and Charles Krauthammer. Will and friends live in a bubble inside the beltway. How’s that working out for us?

    It is true about osma using the tenants of islam. I reread the islam chapter in my son’s world history textbook last night. Mohammad wanted equality between rich and poor. Rich merchants were despised and taken down. CAIR must be so happy right now, except for the fact the American people are rising up against this subtle soft jihad.

    GINGRICH/CAIN 2012 – yes love it, they can run on family values. Gingrich can campaign on how he cheated on his wife then broke up with her while she was in hospital with cancer. Cain can run in his helping others namely paying Ginger White money fir 13 years for ‘services rendered’. It will be a landslide.

  • Practical Jane

    Gingrich has called for a Constitutional Ban on Sharia.
    That alone is reason enough to elect him.

  • Now if Newt would just add the simple fact that Saul Alinsky was the leading American communist of the 20th century. He did not join the party because he thought they were dinosaurs. He wanted to achieve communist domination the Gramsci way, via a long march through the institutions. He was the American Gramsci, and in Obama has succeeded in full.

    Newt’s not a conservative, Newt’s not a conservative, Newt’s not a conservative.

    Get with the program people, Newt is a conservative. He is a bona fide conservative. You can pick little itsy bitsy tiny pieces of a whole plan that isn’t very conservative but overall the plan is as conservative as you can get.

    If your really interested in the truth instead of just sounding off with opinion and liberal talking points why not look at the 21st Century Contract with America on Newt’s website. Listen to his points and what he wants to accomplish and then tell me again he’s not a conservative. He’ also not a career politician, has anyone read his bio? He’s also not damaged goods for mistakes in his past, are we all as pure as the driven snow? Does no one go on with their life and learn from their mistakes?

    It’s time to get serious people. No more liberal talking points or uninformed opinion.

    Read, learn and then decide. It won’t take you any longer than it takes to write a comment on a website.

    How do you know that he’s pure evil if you’ve never met him? And if he really is so evil (spoiler alert: he’s not), why don’t you hate him? You only think he’s evil because he doesn’t think like a white American, as excepted from someone who supports the party promoters of hate, racism, bigotry and ignorance!

    Wikipedia info on Alinsky excerpted: “His organizing skills were focused on improving the living conditions of poor communities across North America. In the 1950s, he began turning his attention to improving conditions of the African American ghettos, beginning with Chicago’s and later traveling to other ghettos in California, Michigan, New York City, and a dozen other “trouble spots”………..

    Alinsky did not join political organizations. When asked during an interview whether he ever considered becoming a Communist party member, he replied:

    “Not at any time. I’ve never joined any organization—not even the ones I’ve organized myself. I prize my own independence too much. And philosophically, I could never accept any rigid dogma or ideology, whether it’s Christianity or Marxism. One of the most important things in life is what Judge Learned Hand described as ‘that ever-gnawing inner doubt as to whether you’re right.’ If you don’t have that, if you think you’ve got an inside track to absolute truth, you become doctrinaire, humorless and intellectually constipated. The greatest crimes in history have been perpetrated by such religious and political and racial fanatics, from the persecutions of the Inquisition on down to Communist purges and Nazi genocide.”[4]

    Nor did he have much respect for mainstream political leaders who tried to interfere with growing black-white unity during the difficult years of the Great Depression. In Alinsky’s opinion, new voices and new values were being heard in the U.S., and “people began citing John Donne’s ‘No man is an island,'” he said. He observed that the hardship affecting all classes of the population was causing them to start “banding together to improve their lives,” and discovering how much in common they really had with their fellow man.[4] He stated during an interview a few of the causes for his active organizing in black communities:

    “Negroes were being lynched regularly in the South as the first stirrings of black opposition began to be felt, and many of the white civil rights organizers and labor agitators who had started to work with them were tarred and feathered, castrated—or killed. Most Southern democrat politicians* were members of the Ku Klux Klan and had no compunction about boasting of it.”

    *before some liar tries to use this to smear current Democrats, the racist Southern Democrats still alive in the 1970s became Republicans thanks to the party’s sucessful Southern Strategy to recruit them

    I’ve followed Net for 30 years and he is everywhere whoring himself out to whoever has some loot to hand him. He is the apotheosis of a Political *****, a disgrace to to himself, his family and the nation. Obama will crush him in 2012 as he exposes one scandal after another.

    Questionman is dealing with facts and reality. Another response actually regrets the “PC” restraints on calling Obama who he really is. Yet how could such a person know who Obama really is?

    Why can so many of us whites think that labeling people and assaulting them with name-calling is a form of intelligent argument? Since the vast majority of us do have the ability to think critically and clearly, I fear that hate and prejudice lead to cognitive dissonance when we are exposed to verifiable fact and truth. Since emotion is more powerful in people who have not learned to discipline their feelings with grounded reasoning, we give into the emotion and thus fall prey to the propaganda of Corporate America.
