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.

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

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

Nothing better depicted Obama´s illegal tampering with the clear words of ObamaCare -- his announcement this week that he was delaying the employer mandate for medium-sized companies -- than Michael Ramirez´ brilliant cartoon showing the law as a blank page in which Obama had continually changed its words and meaning. Along similar lines, Charles Krauthammer observes: But generally speaking you get past the next election by changing your policies, by announcing new initiatives, but not by wantonly changing the law lawlessly. This is stuff you do in a banana republic. It´s as if the law is simply a blackboard on which Obama

In the business world, a diligent board of directors would have long ago fired CEO Obama. Sometimes it takes only a year of less than expected earnings to result in the termination of a corporate CEO. A couple of underperforming years and a few reasons more, and a CEO would have his bags packed and stowed underneath his buck-stopping desk. A long list of problems -- especially one suggesting even a hint of fraud -- that fails to generate a satisfactory board response would stir shareholders and lenders to demand the resignation of not only the CEO and other key employees,

This week the big story was the tag end of the old JournoList gang trying to spin gold out of the dross of the Congressional Budget Report. The CBO report projected that by 2021 under ObamaCare more than 2 million full-time workers will find it financially advisable to quit work entirely or switch to part-time jobs in order to get more subsidies for healthcare insurance. To most of us who studied real economics or just paid attention to human nature, subsidizing indolence means you´ll get more of it.

This week to an ever-diminishing audience President Obama outlined a pedestrian plan for the remainder of this year, amidst the usual hornswoggle of invited guests in the gallery and dubious daytime TV style anecdotal stories of their lives. More popular than ever is the wish that we could return to State of the Union messages being delivered on paper to Congress. In the meantime my friend Ignatz, the genius Sultan Knish (Daniel Greenfield) and even Vladimir Putin offered up some sage observations which underscore the rot at the heart of the administration and his party and the likely consequences of their

Let´s call him John Doe, because he´s petrified that he´ll be the next target of this extra-constitutional gang from Chicago and wouldn´t want to see his name made public. I hadn´t seen him around for a while, but yesterday afternoon there was a knock on the back door.

Former Florida governor Jeb Bush said Sunday that he will base his decision on whether to run for president in 2016 on whether he thinks he can mount a campaign that would transcend the modern-day mechanics of such a run. Bush, the second-oldest son of former president George H. W. Bush and younger brother of George W. Bush, spoke at an event marking the 25th anniversary of his father´s presidency at the library and museum that bears the patriarch´s name. The event was closed to reporters, but moderated by Fox News anchor Shannon Bream and portions of the event were later

Kathryn Riffenburg decided on a closed casket for her baby´s funeral. She didn´t want her family to see what whooping cough, her son´s first illness, had done to 9-week-old Brady Alcaide. The nearly forgotten disease, which has in recent years afflicted thousands of Americans, left Brady´s tiny body swollen and unrecognizable. So his mother dressed him in a white baptismal suit and hat and tucked him into a tiny white casket. Brady´s burial came just four weeks after his first laugh — inspired by her version of I´m a Little Teapot — and two weeks after his family learned that he had

Rev. Al Shaprton, the controversial civil rights leader-turned-broadcaster, was a confidential FBi informant for years and helped the feds put members of the Genovese and Gambino organized crime families behind bars, it was revealed Monday in a sensational exposé. President Barack Obama will speak this week for the second time at the annual meeting of Sharpton´s National Action Network, raising questions about the group´s special treatment. Sharpton´s special relationship with the Justice Department may also explain why his NAN has been allowed to skirt responsibility for $1.9 million in back taxes and penalties it has owed the IRS since 2006

In the midst of questions about the Justice Department’s failure to divulge documents about the Holy Land Foundation terror funding trial, Gohmert made a side comment about how the House of Representatives found Holder in contempt in 2012 for refusing to turn over documents related to the Fast and Furious gun-running scandal. “I realize that contempt is not a big deal to our attorney general, but it is important that we have proper oversight,” Gohmert said. “You don’t want to go there, buddy!

When friends and family members gathered recently at the White House for a private celebration of Michelle Obama’s 50th birthday, one of the invited partygoers was a former paid FBI Mafia informant. That same man attended February’s state dinner in honor of French President Francois Hollande. He was seated with his girlfriend at a table adjacent to President Barack Obama, who is likely unaware that, according to federal agents, his guest once interacted with members of four of New York City’s five organized crime families. He even secretly taped some of those wiseguys using a briefcase that FBI technicians outfitted

For Dems, a problem with seniors

Democrats are facing a senior problem that could get even worse this year. The party has traditionally had trouble with older voters, losing the group aged 65 and over by 21 points in 2010 — when Republicans picked up 63 seats — and by 12 points in the 2012 presidential race. Seniors are the GOP’s most reliable voting bloc in midterm years, turning out in higher numbers than Democratic base voters. A recent Gallup poll showed seniors have become even more Republican over the last two decades; in 2013, 48 percent considered themselves Republican. That spells trouble for Democrats, who are already facing

LONDON - Peaches Geldof, the wild-child second daughter of concert organizer Bob Geldof who worked as a model, a television presenter and a fashion writer and filled the pages of British tabloids with her late-night antics, has died at age 25. There was no immediate word on the cause of her death at her home in Wrotham, Kent, southeast England. Her father said in a statement Monday: "Peaches has died. We are beyond pain." "She was the wildest, funniest, cleverest, wittiest and the most bonkers of all of us," he said. "Writing 'was' destroys me afresh. What a beautiful child. How is this possible that we will not see her again? How is that bearable? We loved her and will cherish her forever."

A married freshman Republican congressman who campaigned on his Christian, conservative values apologized Monday after surveillance video surfaced purportedly showing him in a lengthy liplock with a staffer. In the Dec. 23 footage, obtained by a local newspaper, Rep. Vance McAllister, R-La. - who ahead of his election last fall ran multiple campaign ads trumpeting his faith and family - is seen kissing and embracing a woman for about 20 seconds at his Monroe, La., district office. The Ouachita Citizen reports the woman is the congressman´s 33-year-old part-time scheduler, who is also married.

A few weeks ago, the liberal comedian Bill Maher and conservative strategist and pundit Bill Kristol had a brief spat on Maher’s HBO show, putatively over what instigated the tea party but ultimately over the psychic wound that has divided red America and blue America in the Obama years. The rise of the tea party, explained Maher in a let’s-get-real moment, closing his eyes for a second the way one does when saying something everybody knows but nobody wants to say, “was about a black president.” Both Maher and Kristol carry themselves with a weary cynicism that allows them to

Call it the million-worker mystery. A large chunk of American adults are no longer in the labor force. That has left economists divided over how many of them are voluntarily not working-or even looking for work-because they wanted to retire, go to school or take care of family members, versus how many have been forced out because they couldn´t find a job. (snip) Shierholz estimates that there are currently more than 5 million missing workers who are not included in the unemployment rate because they are neither working nor looking for work, but who might be if the job market

The Democratic National Committee is furious by a conservative website’s ad campaign that depicts Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi clad in a bikini in a provocative pose with her tongue sticking out. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, called on Republicans to press Breitbart News to remove the artwork — one of several suggestive images on the website promoting the new California site. The image of Pelosi, beneath one of California Gov. Jerry Brown’s face photo-shopped onto a flexing body builder, includes the sub-head: “Because you can’t make this s— up.” “To say the least,

In an interview with Yahoo News “global anchor” Katie Couric, the actor called Obamacare the highlight of President Obama´s legacy. “Now’s the time to stake a claim to leave your legacy,” he encouraged Obama. “I personally believe that his health care program is fantastic. Yes, there are problems. Anything worth while is going to go through a growing pains period. But this is his legacy and I think it’s a great one because I don’t
