Chicago Change Agents & Conspiracy (Coincidences and Agitator Theorists)

I just love this report and it is soooo tempting to float a conspiracy, like all the linkage between these Leftist Community Organizers and Bank Liar Loans and the Regressives covering for this abuse and the sudden collapse right before the election and now a massive, progressive take over of banking and maybe industry. A coincidence I am sure. Just those odd little degrees of intersection that always exist. Hell, if the whack jobs can entertain the 9-11 Truthers and Chem Trails and Cheney-Haliburton mierda, then I can wonder about these oddities.     



Alinsky’s “training manual” for community organizers, “Rules for Radicals,” states that community organizers are primarily agitators, who must “Fan the resentments of the people of a community; fan the latent hostilities of many of the people to the point of overt expression – he must search out controversy and issues… An organizer must stir up dissatisfaction and discontentment [sic]…. He knows that values are relative…. Truth to him is relative and changing.” [315]




Note that Alinsky’s work also influenced the creation of the “Cloward-Piven Strategy,” named after Columbia University professors Richard Andrew Cloward and Frances Fox Piven. Their strategy involves taking action to force deliberate failure in society, to foster change toward socialism, by overloading the bureaucracy with impossible demands, lawsuits, holding officials to the extreme letter of the law, etc. The Cloward-Piven method is to push society into an economic collapse, thus forcing a fear and resentment of capitalism, making it easier to usher in socialism. The Cloward-Piven strategy is one of the tactics used by “community organizers” (e.g., storming welfare offices and violently demanding immediate action) to impose intentional strains on the system, and to force the hiring of more government workers than necessary to deal with their ever-increasing demands.

Obama learns from the Alinsky crowd the method for getting people to support radical change they would ordinarily not be willing to accept. “They must feel so frustrated, so defeated, so lost, so futureless in the prevailing system that they are willing to let go of the past and change the future.” Thus, just as it has been the theme of most Democrat Presidential campaigns over the last 30 years, so is it Obama’s: “Everything is terrible and headed in the wrong direction, your lives are in shambles, greedy capitalism is at fault, and you need to trust a bigger government and my plans to solve all your problems.” [192]


For three years, Obama is the director of the Developing Communities Project (DCP), part of the “Gamaliel Foundation,” another Alinsky-like group which uses “in your face” tactics and threats against banks to obtain more loans to people in poor neighborhoods. Gamaliel’s co-founder and executive director is Gregory Galluzzo, who served as a trainer and mentor during Obama’s community activist days in Chicago. [227,228,337]
