It’s Like Deja-Vu All Over Again
The late baseball Hall of Famer Yogi Berra was known for his “Yogi-isms.” I thought of him the other day as I was contemplating the political insanity that has gripped America. Honestly, haven’t we seen this play before? In fact, we have seen this before from the now notorious Saul Alinsky.
Alinsky became a “community organizer” before the term for what he did even existed. He was a favorite of union and communist leaders because his confrontational approach to protests appeared to bear fruit in concessions from those he considered the “bourgeois.” Surprisingly, he proudly acknowledged the mastermind behind his methods in the text that the Progressive Marxist Democrat Party and those aligned with them utilizes to this day. In his acknowledgement to the book Rules for Radicals: A Pragmatic Primer for Realistic Radicals, Alinsky wrote this:
“Lest we forget at least an over-the-shoulder acknowledgement 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.”
One thing is for certain, you can’t accuse Alinsky of knowing what the Bible teaches. Satan didn’t win a kingdom. He was thrown out of heaven for his foolish pride, thinking that he, a created being, could somehow overthrow his Creator. He was cast down to the earth and seized control of what is not his through lies and deceit. As such, he is a pompous potentate for a short time. It is an erroneous interpretation that ascribes a kingdom to the enemy of God. Indeed, Jesus said that He possessed all authority in heaven and on earth.
It is quite telling that Alinsky aligned himself so nonchalantly with Satan. Even if he meant it to be humorous, which I do not think is the case, he was playing with fire. The rotten fruit that came out of Alinsky’s mind has spilled over into the streets of America and has caused bloodshed and mayhem.
So, what “rules” did Alinsky develop through his efforts at organizing people into action? Here are Alinsky’s rules:
- “Power is not only what you have, but what the enemy thinks you have.”Power is derived from 2 main sources – money and people. “Have-Nots” must build power from flesh and blood.
- “Never go outside the expertise of your people.”It results in confusion, fear and retreat. Feeling secure adds to the backbone of anyone.
- “Whenever possible, go outside the expertise of the enemy.”Look for ways to increase insecurity, anxiety and uncertainty.
- “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.”If the rule is that every letter gets a reply, send 30,000 letters. You can kill them with this because no one can possibly obey all of their own rules.
- “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.”There is no defense. It’s irrational. It’s infuriating. It also works as a key pressure point to force the enemy into concessions.
- “A good tactic is one your people enjoy. “They’ll keep doing it without urging and come back to do more. They’re doing their thing, and will even suggest better ones.
- “A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag.”Don’t become old news.
- “Keep the pressure on. Never let up.”Keep trying new things to keep the opposition off balance. As the opposition masters one approach, hit them from the flank with something new.
- “The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself.”Imagination and ego can dream up many more consequences than any activist.
- “The major premise for tactics is the development of operations that will maintain a constant pressure upon the opposition.”It is this unceasing pressure that results in the reactions from the opposition that are essential for the success of the campaign.
- “If you push a negative hard enough, it will push through and become a positive.”Violence from the other side can win the public to your side because the public sympathizes with the underdog.
- “The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative.”Never let the enemy score points because you’re caught without a solution to the problem.
- “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions.
Many politicians, special interest operatives, and America-haters are following Alinsky’s game plan to the letter. They are of course aided and abetted by the internationalists in the Council on Foreign Relations, the United Nations, and the too big to fail multi-national banksters, to name just a few.
Much of the Church has succumbed to a belief that these Luciferians have more power than they really do (see rule #1 above). The truth is if the Church ever realizes the authority that it has been given and presently possesses, it is game over for the imbeciles running roughshod over Americans.
Unfortunately the game appears to be continuing unabated for the God-haters. Contrast the headlines today with what Alinsky determined to be the critical points of control listed below. In How to Create a Socialist State, Alinsky wrote that in order to topple a free people and turn them into serfs of the state, i.e. socialists, you must gain control of specific key elements.
There are eight levels of control that must be obtained before you are able to create a socialist state. The first is the most important.
- Healthcare – Control healthcare and you control the people.
- Poverty – Increase the poverty level as high as possible, poor people are easier to control and will not fight back if you are providing everything for them to live.
- Debt – Increase the debt to an unsustainable level. That way you are able to increase taxes, and this will produce more poverty.
- Gun Control – Remove people’s ability to defend themselves from the Government. That way you are able to create a police state.
- Welfare – Take control of every aspect of their lives (food, housing, and income).
- Education – Take control of what people read and listen to – take control of what children learn in school. Think: “Common Core.”
- Religion – Remove the belief in God from the Government and schools.
- Class Warfare – Divide the people into the wealthy and the poor. This will cause more discontent and it will be easier to take (tax) the wealthy with the support of the poor.
These tactics are in play today, being employed by those who openly desire to destroy America. The Democrat Party and their Republican and now Muslim co-conspirators make no pretense of their aim to completely destroy the freedoms and liberties of Americans and to do that they must destroy Christianity. These miscreants are in a full out race to outdo one another with their idiotic promises that appeal to no one with even half a brain. Their taunting and reviling of God, prayer, the Bible, and Christians is bearing rotten fruit. Lawsuits filed against Christians are commonplace today. Municipalities appear to take joy in refusing displays of Christian themed national holidays while simultaneously forcing American children to undergo re-education indoctrination processes aimed at disarming them against the real dangers of the satanic geopolitical force commonly called Islam, the twisted and demented transgender confusion, and the butt-sex crazed political darling, homosexuality.
The Luciferians among us and that includes many who say they belong to Jesus, are seeking to kill, steal, and destroy the liberty and freedom of Americans, but the real goal remains the same: destroy the true Church. That is why we see so many calling for the United Nations to step up and become the arbiter of all things. The United Nations is Satan’s stronghold. The United Nations sponsors the Parliament of World Religions hoping to develop and mobilize millions who will receive any god but the God of Abraham, Issac, and Jacob. The Interfaith Dialogue zombies, social justice shills, and victim class agitators, all babbling about white privilege and injustice, wealth redistribution, and now reparations, take their marching orders from the United Nations. The United Nations is poised to step in when the time is right and Christians are being played like a banjo and don’t realize it.
What the people in the Christian Progressive camp, the Democrat Party, the Republican Party, Antifa, Black Lives Matter, Muslim politicians, the rising socialists, and every other leftist aberration do not understand is that they cannot triumph over the true Church. There will be many who follow them into eternal damnation by their apostasy but the true Church cannot be defeated under the command of a defeated foe, that dragon of old, Satan.
Friends, it is time for Christians to stop being intimidated by the leftists of every stripe. Their father Satan is a defeated foe and he has no power or authority over a blood bought, Holy Spirit filled, redeemed, adopted, son or daughter of the Most High God. Church rise up! Pastors and Elders, lead the flock God has entrusted to your care into this war for the hearts, minds, and eternal destinies of Americans. Do it or get out of the way and let a real man of God lead them! Christian, stop your nonsensical mumbling about “all we need to do is share Jesus’ love” and start loving people by telling them the truth about salvation for those who repent and trust in Christ and judgement for those who reject Christ. Jesus Christ is returning with a sword and as the Judge.
Jesus said you are either for Him or against Him. If you refuse to fight evil then let me tell you clearly, you are against Him. Fall on your face, confess, repent, and be restored, then get up and get in the fight.
May Christ be glorified in all the earth by His people!
