I'm a boomer. You're a boomer. Wouldn't you like to be a boomer, too? I would not. Though age-wise I am in the category, I want to take this moment to disavow any connection whatsoever to the radical leftists who hijacked my generation and turned our country inside out and upside down. My generation has a tainted reputation thanks to a group of childish bullies who bought into Saul Alinsky's Rules for Radicals and Karl Marx. I am referring to the SDS (Students for a Democratic Society), the Weather Underground, the Black Panthers, Jane Fonda and Tom Hayden, Father Pfleger, and the rest of the spoiled brats who decided the world was theirs to wreck and ruin. This group of radical leftists who have now hijacked our country are, for all intents and purposes, psychopathic tyrants.
A psychopath is a person without conscience; someone who constantly breaks the moral rules of the community. Saul Alinsky was a "community organizer" who found a career that fit that personality disorder. In the Orwellian upside-down world of the Left, community organizers disorganize communities. That is the meaning of revolution, to overturn whatever exists today in the raw pursuit of one's own power.
Alinsky's personality fits the definition of a psychopath -- someone who has no guilt or shame toward others. But Alinsky also discovered how to teach psychopathic behavior to college students. That is the key to his success: To persuade hundreds of thousands of ignorant young people that it is much more moral to be immoral. Or, as Bill Ayers famously said, "Bring the Revolution home; kill your parents."
I had the fun of watching the first Nanny McFee movie last evening. I hadn't seen it before last evening and enjoyed the lessons to the young on how to behave and the rewards of correctness, respectfulness, and truth. This morning, reflecting on that movie, it comes to me that the Alinskyites in our government, who used to be the radical fringes, are those children at the beginning of the movie who are out of control and wrecking the house just because they want their way and they are going to trash everything in order to get it. Barack Obama needs a Nanny McFee. Rahm Emanuel, who would not want a crisis to go to waste, is a perfect example of those children manipulating a situation to try to intimidate everyone around them. Bill Ayers and Bernadette Dorhn got away with crimes and were not disciplined for those crimes. Instead, because of money and connections, they were placed into respected positions in academia. They were handed the keys to the American public education system and have been busy indoctrinating teachers into the Alinsky methods of social destruction. What a great reward for bombing the Pentagon plotting against the government!
Justifying mayhem is a mark of psychopathic behavior. Justifying lies, i.e. the end justifies the means, is psychopathic behavior. Talking out of both sides of your mouth, giving different messages to different audiences to gain money and power, is psychopathic behavior. (Obama tells the Muslims at the White House Ramadan dinner he supports the Cordoba Mosque next to Ground Zero...and then, the next day, tells the press he was just supporting a Constitutional right but not really discussing the wisdom of it. Excuse me?)
Anger and hate reign supreme in the guts of little children who throw tantrums to get their way. They have not yet learned the simple lessons of correct behavior, respectfulness, and truth. Those who arrive at the chronological age of adulthood, but who never reach a mature pathology of behavior and discipline, are likely to behave in anti-social ways. This describes the methodology of Alinsky. Alinsky's Rules for Radicals appeals to the undisciplined children who grew up to become undisciplined adults, those who get a thrill out of tearing things apart, those who like ripping fabric to shreds, those who use force to get their way, and those who refuse to acknowledge the responsibilities of freedoms. Alinsky appeals to those who think the world revolves around them. Little tyrants in grown-up bodies. They have egos that carry no guilt and no shame. These are adult-children who learned to get attention by manipulation, force, ridicule, lies, and disrespect for individual's rights. They are filled with hate and disgust towards a world that does not bend to their will and buy into their sales pitches. If you don't buy what they are selling, you must be the idiot and don't know what is good for you.
I have a theory that people do what works for them. In other words, if you behave like a bully and you get your way, that behavior worked for you. If you steal from people and you get away with it, that behavior works for you. If you lie and cheat, yet you are never caught and gain from those actions, that behavior works for you. Without the consequences of bad behavior, we will continue to have bad behavior. As long as you massage the egos and gratify the demands of tyrants, we will be stuck with egotistical tyrants. Rewarding bad behavior is creating an environment of bureaucratic tyrants who don't really know how to do anything else but throw their weight around.
Nanny McFee says that if you need her, she will come. As soon as you don't need her anymore, she is gone. Well, it's a bit late for getting Nanny McFee involved with Barack Obama and our society of entitled, ego-maniacal, radical, Alinsky-like destroyers. Alinsky dedicated his book to Lucifer. His psychopathic teachings created this insanity over an entire generation and more. If Alinsky called on Lucifer for his skill in the destruction of God's kingdom, then shouldn't we call on God to help us fight back? It can't hurt. I'm sure who is going to win that battle.
