Here’s Alinsky’s Rule #5: “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon. There is no defense. It’s irrational. It’s infuriating.” Paula Jones, victim of one of Clinton’s sexual assaults came to be known as “trailer park trash.” It was her fault Clinton exposed himself to her in a hotel room. She was a tramp and deserved it. Plus she was ugly and had bad hair. Linda Tripp was fat and old, desperate and a backstabbing female, not an American citizen shocked and alarmed to know her President was having oral sex in the oval office with a 24-year-old intern who was her friend. It was a very effective use of those “Alinsky Rules” by Hillary Clinton, who was in charge of discrediting the so-called “bimbos” erupting around her husband.
Rule #12: “Pick a target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it. Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions." Makes me think of Ken Starr, the mild-mannered special prosecutor turned villain. Even as the cameras followed him retrieving his newspaper from the driveway every morning, we were convinced he was an evil man, driven by revenge; not remotely a man of integrity trying to faithfully execute his assigned role in one of the nation’s shameless Clinton scandals. Billy Dale, the White House travel agent fired by Mrs. Clinton to make room for Clinton friends, was not just no longer wanted, but charged with crimes he did not commit to excuse the firing, costing him hundreds of thousands of his personal savings to defend—his reputation destroyed, his business in shambles.
Rule # 4: “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules. You can kill them with this because no one can possibly obey all of their own rules.” While Bill Clinton brags of conquests, Barney Frank lives with a male lover who ran a prostitution ring from their apartment and Ted Kennedy reigns in the Senate despite a cowardly act which took the life of his married man’s tryst, there is no backlash because, you see, they have no rules. Henry Hyde and Newt Gingrich and other opponents ostensibly stood for decency and morality, so the attacks were merciless and effective. The Clintons are famous for their squads of investigators searching the trash, scanning the phones, photographing the private lives of their enemies. They are also powerfully effective at intimidating and destroying their victims. Alinsky would be very proud.
But now things are different. The Alinsky pupil has matured. She looks softer, prettier than her radical days. She smiles more easily, speaks with measured, more pleasant tones … much more suited for a leader. Dressed to perfection, her laughter and multiple accents are managed well. So now she wants to be our president, painlessly guiding us into a world governed by new “rules,” godless, ruthless methods to obtain and keep power over all who oppose her—fellow Americans who, as her teacher Alinsky would remind her, are her “enemies” to be overcome in a bloodless revolution.
