Conservatives using
Alinsky´s Rule Number 5

American Thinker, by Thomas Lifson

Original Article

Posted By:DW626, 11/22/2012 5:42:45 AM

Two of the most interesting stars in the world of conservative broadcasting, each a master of ridicule, have newly published books timed for the for the Christmas season. Michael Savage and Greg Gutfeld are both masters of ridicule, a tool extensively deployed by the left but too little by the right, especially its more respectable regions. The left, after all, was instructed by Saul Alinsky in Rule Number 5: Ridicule is man´s most potent weapon. It´s hard to counterattack ridicule, and it infuriates the opposition, which then reacts to your advantage."

Alinsky´ rules were part of the Occupy movement to mock and ridicule wealth so it would eventually trickle down to Romney in the election. A lot of the attack ads and other brainless accusations were made up out of thin air against his time at Bain.The union guy who lost his wife to cancer 5 years later was blamed on Romney´s heartlessness and it worked.

The left still claims the republicans are the party of the rich which is insane. they´re for prosperity so it improves the lives of those working for them. They do more to spread the wealth by jobs and income taxes than leftists could ever dream of.


The liberals remind me of a circle of buzzards flying over a dying economy looking to pick the meat off who´s left.They´re making a big mistake thinking people are going to fork over wealth they worked their entire lives for.The economy has been dead the last 4 years over wealth preservation.Obamacare was designed for the government to forcibly steal wealth.These people really believe there´s blood in a turnip.
How many people do the Koch brothers employ compared to Buffet?

The facts #1 cites are true. Unfortunately, liberals and facts are like oil and water.

Now, this could be fun.

Another thing that bothered me: when Sarah was introduced as VP candidate, the libs immediately sent 30-40 Operators to Alaska to dig up crap on her, and file frivolous ethics charges. They put her in debt about $2 million for legal fees forcing her to resign. (And none of the charges stuck.)

I mentioned to a coworker that I hope Sarah becomes even more involved now. His reply, "she is a quitter, she couldn´t even finish her term as governor." Amazing.

Those are the new rules. Are we going to completely ignore them.

I belong to the Tea Party Patriots and Jenny Beth was hostile to Romney from day one. I happened to receive a phone call from her, raising money, and when I suggested to her that the Tea Party should endorse Romney, she was very dismissive. I don´t mean to give the impression we know each other, she didn´t know me from Adam.

As to Ted Cruz, I am surprised at his crude language abd disapointed to see that he is capable of it.

Yes, ridicule the so-and-so´s, and you don´t need to have platforms like Rush´s or Savage´s to do it.

Today´s contribution:

From Benghazi -- The Musical

Try to remember that night in September
When men were trapped and you turned yellow.
Try to remember the rest of September
When lies were told and you stayed mellow.
Try to remember those days in November
When the dodge unraveled, unlucky fellow.
Try to dissemble, it´s Bill you´ll resemble,
Then you´ll be impeached and maybe Senate Democrats will do the right thing for once and convict you.

Deep in November, your honor´s an ember,
´Cause nothing´s changed, your core is hollow.
Deep in November, it´s hard to remember
Just how you hawked the swill we swallowed.
Deep in November, on track to dismember
Our rights, our dreams, to pen us in wallow.
Come new Novembers, if we don´t remember,
Well, we´ll start looking more and more like Greece,
And instead of leading, we´ll follow, follow, follow.

Allow me to slightly disagree, #1. Everything you mentioned is true, but has nothing to do with why Romney lost. Far fewer of the buzzard flying libs showed up for this election than 2008. It´s we conservatives who didn´t get the job done. This article is about two conservative broadcasters possibly appealing to new potential conservatives. I actually believe Savage, and those like him, is partly to blame for the lack of conservatives showing up at the polls. Savage criticizes just about every Republican and promotes the idea that all politicians are bad, so why vote for any of them. Too many like-minded people out there, who would be Republican votes, staying home on election day. We didn´t unite behind Romney and therefore we lost. What makes Thomas Lifson think these new fans of Michael Savage will be any different??

Greg Gutfeld is unique in all the world; an acid-dipped lollipop of wit and humor who never hates. He just lampoons the HELL out of that which deserves to be lampooned, and may God bless and keep this wonderful guy for the great work he does on this earth. In an increasingly depressing world, Greg keeps me LAUGHING, and that´s no small accomplishment. Love ya, Greg! :-D

The GOP should be ripping Hillary a new one everyday until another potential 2016 Dem candidate sticks their head up. They should mock, ridicule, distort, lie and criticize without let up. She has given them plenty of legitimate ammunition with her total failure as SoS. Playing nice is for chumps.

The most important tactic to use against the libbies is "ridicule". They have a short fuse -- as witnessed by the magic zero who gets hostile very quickly when confronted with "truth".....

libbies are convinced they can act like "lying children" and WE the "grownups" will get upset but "fix" their problems.

Wrongo buckaroo!! They can cheat and lie and manipulate all day long and WE grownups will out/smart them in the end.

They stole this election with the votes of takers -- but -- never thought that the "givers" would move their assets and survive the facebook and twitter demands...

Sorry -- I am not amused....

I´ve never understood why they great talkers (Rush, Levin, etc) of radio, don´t take the simple production of taking speeches by the Obama´s, Clinton´s etc. and play them with a laugh track behind them.

Simple, easy to do, and makes your point.

Poster 8 speaks for many who believe in the Leo Durocher view that nice guys finish last. It is incumbent that the GOP take the needle to piaps. Start with the "I dodged machine gun fire on the tarmac in Bosnia." it was a fall tale she told multiple times to draw attention to herself. The exposure of this big lie may have cost her the 2008 nomination. She briefly recaptured momentum in the campaign. Then Sheryl Atkission of CBS slammed her with the truth. It rocked piaps on her heels, she went on letterman and tried to make a joke about it but it was too late. For she had become a laughing stock. Once that happens to a politician it is over.

The left owns entertainment. Otherwise nice people laugh at the essentially racist (we are that race) product they produce.

And it especially works if you make listening to anything said by our side a mortal sin (and it IS a religion).

Greg Gutfeld is funny, but does a Greg Gutfeld ridiculing in the forest make a sound if there´s no demwit there to listen?

I used to believe that taking the high road would appeal to most voters, and I still believe there´s room for that in elections. Conservatives can win again without lying and character assassination, and if some of the suggestions in previous posts are used, I´m betting it would work.

This, along with bettering marketing of conservative solutions, will lead to a whole new climate change in DC in 2 years.

Sagman - BRAVO - WELL DONE!!! This is your best one yet - "Try to Remember" is one of the best songs from the 1960´s. You should record the song with your words and send it to Michael Savage and Greg Gutfeld and this article. They might play it on their programs.

Our nation will not elect Hillary in 2016 when she will be a 69 year-old white woman. The women that voted for Obama because he lied to them and claimed Romney would take away their birth control and ban abortions will not be motivated to vote for an old woman to be president.

I do wonder, should Obama claim he can run for a third term, if his primary opposition will be the other Clinton, and I don´t mean Chelsea.

Also, Greg is the man! His rapier wit slicing through the pretenses of puffed up libs is a joy to see! Yet, as another poster noted, Greg is hip. He´s the right´s Jon Stewart - only with larger vocabulary goodness!

To those who can´t stomach Michael Savage, recall there was a time when he was the 3rd most listened to broadcaster. Yes his fighting style is out of the street where he was born. I know because I was born there. It is the toughest street in the world. We look at Republicans like Rove and Bush and we see losers and a fix. In Bush, you have a man who believes Christians and Muslims pray to the same God. When you have surrendered this truth, you can be controlled by "money." We were a separated nation unto Him -- and we were blessed. This has offended many -- and in thre last days, "many will be offended." Bronx conservatives don´t have to think deeply to know the ticket is just about set for 2016, and there will be no Christians or conservatives allowed. Just accountants and losers. And they lose because they neither understand the drug experience and spiritual force of the enemy, nor are they willing to fight them to the death out of love for this place. Savage fights, and he is not at all graceful. He is also a pain in the a** narcissist like O´Reilly, but he is not the stunning oblivious a**hat O´Reilly is. Savage is a Jewish prophet who will tell you the plain truth the way we heard it in the Bronx. Because he is a doctor of probiotics or whatever, he is gentrified enough to edit out the F-words for adjectives and nouns. Never be ashamed of Christ, your heritage, your forefatherss and heroes, and never never surrender.

It´s encouraging to see that some are finally realizing that gutter politics cannot be defeated by Marquis of Queensbury rules. Richard M. Nixon and Lee Atwater knew how to deal with Democrats. After JFK stole the 1960 election, Nixon did not whine about it. He got even. Sometimes you can win even if you are retreating. The GOP has never learned that. Right now the GOP is on the defensive because of the Democrat party´s successful anti-european-male program. The GOP can´t win on that field. But there are other battlegrounds on which the Democrats can be slaughtered using similar tactics.

Savage could make some real contributions to the Conservative cause if he´d only dial it back a couple clicks. He won´t.

In contrast, I appreciate Ann Coulter´s career arc. Outrageous at the outset, she got herself on everybody´s radar screen, especially the reactive Left. Then she dialed it back, lost the shrillness, and slid in some sober scholarship and insight. Like all of us she´s still really wrong on occasion --- Chris Christie??? --- but her fine, meticulously researched book ´´Demonic´´ is a considerable Conservative contribution, IMO, worth a read and reread.

Savage could have learned from Coulter. But he won´t.

Yes, this was a constant meme on every Conservative blog including this one. I noticed that it was a particular favorite with people who favored certain other candidates, who were more in the NE Moderate category. That canard and her "screechy hick" voice were the most repeated complaints.

Hillary will be running 2016--witness the highly publicized Gaza Peace deal this week brokered by the Islamist regime she helped put in place in Egypt. The Muslim world wanted Obama because he is weak and feckless. They want Hillary for the same reasons, plus, they will be able to whip their followers into a frenzy with rhetoric regarding the Great Satan being ruled by a Woman and a nasty, ugly, and shrill woman at that.

#28, I´d say Redeye is uneven, but nevertheless groundbreaking conservative TV. Sometimes brilliant, sometimes really average, depending on the panel, of course. Gutfeld gets it that Culture trumps Politics, and is progressing along that line. America is a Center Right country swimming in a Liberal Cultural sea spanning from public education to Hollywood. The Right must push back (or advance) culturally as well as politically, else we will repeat this year´s political failures. Again, Gutfeld gets this.

I´m from the NE, I was for Romney from Day One, and I never said one word against Sarah. I am getting pretty tired of assumptions.

I love Greg. He was raised humanely. One evening when the Five were talking about their childhoods (Bob said he was abused and punished unmercifully) Greg´s mother came on camera and she denied that she had spanked him. He said, "you don´t remember chasing me around the living room with a fly swatter?" and she said no. She is a really sweet lady with the same sense of fun that he has..

I think Greg Gutfeld is the funniest person on TV and I would urge the GOP to find a way to have him and the bald headed fellow on Imus host late night talk shows. Not as late as Greg´s show now, but put them up against Leno and Letterman and watch their rating collapse.

After thousands of years of intellectual evolution, American society is now in the process of devolving. Alinsky believes in destroying and not building our society. Competing with him to out-ridicle conservative thinking is a mistake. As long as the Media protects the lies and the facts from America, we, as citizens, must continue to expose the Truth and engage in the consequences of Socialism which is the reduction of our Freedom and the expansion of the "Big Brother Big Government Plantation". Alinsky has no value or benefit to human evolution.

You know, there´s signal and noise and fire and smoke. The post mortem of this election is all about smoke and noise. The first and foremost goal of conservatism---number one on the list of things to do to regain a foot hold in this nation---is to neutralize the liberal media!! They have spent the last 40 years dumbing down and liberalizing the public through their news censorship and mushroom growing propagandizing (keep ´em in the dark and cover them with manure). It´s no wonder 63 million ignorant mushrooms voted for the most imcompetent man to ever run for president in 2008. I´m not convinced that there aren´t a couple of conservatives rich enough buy to out two of the big three broadcasters (ABCCBSNBC) and turn them into legitamite news organizations. The WAPO is slowly dying and maybe someone can convince Carlos Slim to give up bailing out the Times so it will go belly up. Until the American people are told the truth (the WHOLE truth) consistantly every night on the 6 o´clock news they are going to continue to be dumb enough to fall for the socialist/labor/democrat lies on the campaign trail. How many times have you asked yourself "how could they be so dumb to vote for him"? Well, if your world view was filtered through ABCCBSNBCCNN you´d understand why.

Triple dittos to #39. Conservatives showed up and voted in force and libs/dems/socialists used every means of voter fraud imaginable to steal the election in key states. When voter turnout greatly exceeds registered voters, Dems are stealing an election. When busloads of Somalis show up to vote and cannot read their ballots in a state which does not required voter ID, Dems are stealing an election. When electronic voting machines in more than a few states keep defaulting to Obama when the voter chooses Romney, Dems are stealing an election. When multiple precincts report 0 votes for Romney, Dems are stealing an election.

Write your State government, and contact your electors and challenge the election in your state if you have encountered fraudulent voter practices or know of fraudulent election practices. When we voted for president in 2008 in Alexandria, Virginia, there were NO NAMES on the presidential ballot, only party names.

The Electoral College meets December 17th, so take action now to defeat voter frauds.

Pardon my second post, but to make may point the mushroom media hammered Bush on the Abu Graib issue--a fratenity hazing on steriods. Well, the best kept secret of the Aphgan war--to protect Obama--is one of the worst military atrocities since Me Lai. Which, even most well informed Ldotters are probably not aware of. Google "5th Stryker Brigad kill team" and be astounded. It´s the best kept secret since the Manhattan Project--thanks to a compliant media.

The Poverty Hoax

A major concern of progressives is their supposed interest in the fate of the poor. They purport to be the champions of the poor. But the truth is that they need the poor more than the poor need them, in a symbiotic relationship. As much as 75% of the money allocated to the poor is consumed by the vast bureaucracies that administer this aid. These agencies are actually job programs for college graduates who would often find it difficult to find employment in the private sector. The late William Raspberry wrote a column dealing with Gina, a 14 year old

Early on in the Genesis chapter of the Bible much is made of Adam giving names to all living creatures. Like everything about the Bible, the meaning of this event is subject to many interpretations, the most often given is that it signals man’s dominion over the other creatures of the earth. I don’t dispute that reading, but to me, the naming description signifies that there can be no real communication among people unless the names we use mean the same thing to all of us. A spade certainly is a garden implement, but if you are in the gardening

Why Ukraine? Why Now?

The “I’m shocked, shocked” line from Casablanca is too much a cliché to carry any -- umm -- shock value, but surely it fits Putin’s actions against Ukraine. But the civilized world, mainly the Anglosphere, has long shown its utter indifference to human life by ignoring mass killings on a scale surpassed only by the Nazis and the Communists in the last century. More than a hundred thousand in Syria and still going on; perhaps a million or more in North Korea; millions in Africa, uncounted tens of thousands or more in Iran. The one place we intervened was Iraq, with

This week President Obama, following a long string of bloopers that the media underplays or ignores, spelled respect "R-S-P-E-C-T´". It was a fitting blunder in a week in which he and America´s left wing took a series of pratfalls.To start off, Medea Benjamin, master media manipulator and water carrier for countless leftist tyrants, winged into Cairo apparently to lend her inestimable support to the Moslem Brotherhood. The Egyptian government treated her less courteously than did the Democrat legislators who regularly let her and her pinko buddies disrupt Congressional hearings. In one instance her team, which had certainly been invited in by Democrats

When Paul Audley took the job as president of FilmL.A. in late 2008, he was astounded to discover that physical production on the $70 million pic “Battle: Los Angeles” wasn’t being done in Los Angeles.“It stunned me that the movie was shooting in Louisiana, and that the state of California was letting this happen,” he recalls. In the subsequent five years, the situation has only worsened, despite the film production incentive program California enacted in 2009, which provides for $100 million a year in tax credits for what’s usually 20% of production costs. That’s significantly smaller than programs offered by other

Kudos to Don Lemon, the CNN journalist, for admitting what conservatives have maintained ever since Barack Obama became president with unquestioning media support and suppression of any conservatism as racist: (This is the totality of the text, video is enclosed.)

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)
