Goldberg's assertion is Republicans need to recognize and get past Alinsky-ite tactics; RULE 5: “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.” There is no defense. It’s irrational. It’s infuriating. It also works as a key pressure point to force the enemy into concessions." Isn't that exactly what the community organizer in chief does? Alinsky asserts there is no defense, yet there is, TRUTH and FACT. If anyone in any situation can just look beyond the stupid name calling and realize if you don't accept someones ridicule it is harmless. I'm old but I still remember that "Sticks and stones can break my bones but words can never hurt me". Come on people lets pull up our big girl panties and get on with winning.
