Saul Alinsky & his Rules for Radicals: the source of everything evil in politics and society


May 4, 2021: Most of the evil we see in the world today is linked to, structured around, and compelled by the writings of Saul Alinsky. In 1971, Alinsky imposed his hate on society with the release of his seminal publication (and anti-bible) called “Rules for Radicals”. This is a literary work “oozing” in a dream of institutionalizing hate, manipulation and power all in the name of progressive and globalist ideology. Rules for Radicals is the single most important framework, code, inspiration and dogma created for new generations of maniacal and power-hungry politicians, bureaucrats, progressive tacticians and social degenerates. The book is a structured game plan for the progressive left and the “apolitical-establishment” villains we see in politics and bureaucracy today.


During the 70’s, academia produced the first wave of Alinsky “disciples” in the form of personalities such as Hillary Clinton, Bill Ayers, Bernadette Dohrn and Frank Marshall Davis. In the 80’s, a second wave of Alinsky miscreants began to emerge with Barak Hussein Obama, Richard Cloward, Al Sharpton, and Frances Fox Piven taking leading roles. Today we see a growing army of Alinsky mutants in the form of Ilian Omar, Rashida Tlaib, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ayanna Pressley, Stacy Abrams, Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi, Maxine Waters, Gavin Newsom and many more. It is a fair conclusion to say that today’s world of politics and bureaucracy (and society!) is suffering from a full infestation of these manipulative and hate-inspired social deviants.


The depth of Alinsky’s dark soul is captured in his own expression of adornment for Satan: “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.” (Saul Alinsky - direct quote, 1971) These dark and evil words speak to the sinister soul of Alinsky on their own. Alinsky’s reference to Lucifer should shake anyone to the core – his dark words have become the malevolent religion of his followers who use his doctrine as the source of their inspiration and purpose on this planet. We now see this noxious manifestation every day!


The words used to open this article may seem hyperbolic and inflammatory, however, anyone familiar with the writings and vision of Alinsky understand that: (1) Alinsky successors are massive in number and ever present through all walks of life, (2) Alinsky’s successors are zealously applying the Rules for Radicals to the letter of that law and with religious conviction, and (3) every problem in the world today can be directly tied to the leaders of Alinsky’s dogma and practices. Look no further than today’s social justice warriors and progressive advocacy groups to see the pervasive manifestation of Alinsky in society. Groups and causes like Antifa, BLM, the Justice Democrats, Brand New Congress, The Young Turks (TYK), Youth Climate Strike, and the Green New Deal are the nasty offspring of Alinsky and his doctrine of hatred and subversion.


There is arguably nothing more important in today’s fight against progressives, metropolitanists, and globalists than gaining a full understanding of (and response to) Alinsky’s ideological foundation and his collection of 13 sinister “commandments”. In our fight against Alinsky and his fanatical acolytes, John Loeffler adroitly notes, “In any tactical scenario, knowing the opposition’s moves and methods beforehand gives an unprecedented advantage. The methods and rules found in Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals playbook have been the hidden force behind Progressive Leftist politics and media for the last fifty years.” (Steel of Steel website, John Loeffler, 2021)


The following list of 13 Rules for Radicals is extracted directly from Alinsky’s writings in 1971 – it is essential to become aware of these rules, how today’s violent and hateful left uses them, and how to identify and defend oneself against them. As you make your way through each of these rules, take note of current personalities and events and how they relate to this Alinsky doctrine.


1. “Power is not only what you have, but what the enemy thinks you have.“


2. “Never go outside the expertise of your people.“


3. “Whenever possible, go outside the expertise of the enemy.“


4. “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.“


5. “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.“


6. “A good tactic is one your people enjoy.“


7. “A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag.“


8. “Keep the pressure on. Never let up.“


9. “The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself.“


10. “The major premise for tactics is the development of operations that will maintain a constant pressure upon the opposition.”


11. “If you push a negative hard enough, it will push through and become a positive.“


12. “The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative.“


13. “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.“

For serious patriots, a deeper dive into Alinsky’s book will illustrate the extent of psychological and social depravity undergirding each of Alinsky’s rules. For the purpose of summarizing Alinsky’s work within this article, a good starting point is to observe and galvanize the basic themes of Alinsky’s rules: hate, vilification, targeting, marking any and all opposition as an "enemy", abuse of real and perceived power, psychological manipulation, terror, demonizing, and intimidation. The obvious “fabric” of Alinsky’s hate laden ideology make it both easy to identify and easy to predict. Simply look at all the “bad” in the world today and who is consistently connected to it. The more you consider what is going on, the more you realize it is all linked to Alinsky’s teachings and the actions of his disgusting acolytes. John Loeffler captures the essence of this logic as follows:


“Progressives and social justice warriors exploit the weaknesses inherent in the system, made weaker by pitting opposing forces against one another. They favor to use malleable innocents as their poster-children (literally) for their causes. Often the platform is couched in emotional appeals and framed to make any opposition cringe in fear of being called a “-phobe” or “-ist”. They oppose independent, morally strong, educated people because those individuals, especially in groups, can’t be manipulated easily. (Steel of Steel website, John Loeffler, 2021)


EA urges our community to pay particular attention to Alinsky rules #1, #4, #5, #8, #9 and #13. These specific rules are being exploited in everything we see from the left. Gain a deep understanding of these rules, determine how they are manifested in today’s world events and crises, and build a personal logic and a solid defense in anticipation of facing the effects of these dirty tactics. As a call to action, EA also urges our community of patriots to consider the worst leaders who are notorious for exploiting the hateful ideology and tactics of Alinsky. Our EA list of personalities, organizations and causes to immediately target should start with: Ilian Omar, Rashida Tlaib, AOC, Ayanna Pressley, Stacey Abrams, Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi, Joe Biden, Kamela Harris, Maxine Waters, Gavin Newsom, Hillary Clinton, Barak Obama, Bill Gates (Foundation), Klaus Schwab (WEF), Tedros Adhanom (WHO), Anthony Fauci (NIAID), Boris Johnson (UK), Angela Merkel (Germany), Justin Trudeau (Canada), Jack Dorsey (Twitter & Square), Jeff Bezos (Amazon), Mark Zuckerberg (FaceBook), Sundar Pachai (Google), Tim Cook (Apple), Antifa, BLM, the Justice Democrats, Brand New Congress, TYK, Youth Climate Strike, and the Green New Deal. Most important of all is to always stay fully informed, always proactively plan against the actions of the left, and always stay together as a community. By: Extremely American Colin Wright
