Saul Alinsky is one of Hillary’s greatest mentors. His philosophies can be seen throughout Hillary’s politics today. What are his philosophies you ask? Well, he is the infamous community organizer who wrote ‘Rules for Radicals.’ Still not sure what that means? His book, which Alinsky dedicated to ‘Lucifer,’ is the handbook for racial agitators and left-wing political problem causers. Now, that should scare you a bit.
How big of an influence was Alinsky to Hillary? Enough that she chose to write her 92-page thesis at Wellesley College about him.
During Hillary’s time at the White House, much like she refused to show transcripts to her speeches to big banks and illegally deleted at least 33k emails under subpoena, Hillary chose secrecy over transparency. She demanded Wellesley withhold it from the public, fearing the backlash to her sympathetic portrayal of the radical communist.
When the thesis finally became public it was clear why she hid it. The thesis largely validated Alinsky’s philosophies. The New York Times even wrote “Ms. Rodham endorsed Mr. Alinsky’s central critique of government antipoverty programs.”
[Alinsky was] the practical theorist for progressives who had supported the Communist cause to regroup after the fall of the Berlin Wall and mount a new assault on the capitalist system.
It was Alinsky who wove the inchoate relativism of the post-Communist left into a coherent whoe, and helped to form the coalition of communists, anarchists, liberals, Democrats, black racialists, and social justice activists…
Here is what the Free Beacon reported:
Clinton met with Alinsky several times in 1968 while writing a Wellesley college thesis about his theory of community organizing.
Clinton’s relationship with Alinsky, and her support for his philosophy, continued for several years after she entered Yale law school in 1969, two letters obtained by the Washington Free Beacon show.
The letters obtained by the Free Beacon are part of the archives for the Industrial Areas Foundation, a training center for community organizers founded by Alinsky, which are housed at the University of Texas at Austin.
The letters also suggest that Alinsky, who died in 1972, had a deeper influence on Clinton’s early political views than previously known.
A 23-year-old Hillary Clinton was living in Berkeley, California, in the summer of 1971. She was interning at the left-wing law firm Treuhaft, Walker and Burnstein, known for its radical politics and a client roster that included Black Panthers and other militants.
On July 8, 1971, Clinton reached out to Alinsky, then 62, in a letter sent via airmail, paid for with stamps featuring Franklin Delano Roosevelt, and marked “Personal.”
Here is a copy of one letter.
Why does this matter today? Because as Laura Ingraham aptly noticed, Saul Alinsky’s radical philosophies are on the ballot this Election.
Please take a deep breath and then read this to see what Alinsky is all about.
