“There is a very thin line between communism, progressivism, Marxism, socialism,” West said. “It’s about nationalizing production, it’s about creating and expanding the welfare state, it’s about this idea of social and economic justice… it is also about the creation of a secular state.”
~ former Rep., Lt. Col. Allen West
On Super Bowl Sunday, during an interview with talk show host, Bill O’Reilly, Mr. Obama was asked why he felt it necessary to ‘fundamentally transform the nation.’ He then had the audacity to act as if he never said it. He said Sunday that he doesn’t think we have to ‘transform the nation.’
Obama is no different than any other lying Alinsky communist. If you haven’t read Alinksy’s rules for Radicals, you might want to. The most basic principle of Alinsky’s advice to radicals is to lie to their opponents and disarm them by pretending to be moderates and liberals.
Both Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama are great admirers of Alinsky. Obama taught Alinksy’s methods in Chicago.
Mr Alinsky, who died in 1963, was a Chicago-born, “social movement organizer,” who loved controversy and instigated hostile reactions as a way to promote his socialistic vision of America. His books included: “Reveille for Radicals” and “Rules For Radicals.” He did not believe in violence, his approach was purely verbal. He ignored the political system and felt that only through “heavy pressure” could his radical, socialistic agenda be implemented.
In 1985, Mr Obama was working for the Developing Communities Project (ACORN), an Alinsky affiliate. After Harvard Law School, while teaching contitutional law at the University of Chicago, he advised community groups about Alinsky’s political methods.
In an article in the New Republic in 2007, Obama’s his own political agenda was described as identical to Alinsky’s. To “soften” this political philosophy, (Obama NEVER repudiated it ), Obama campaign officials said that the President rejected Alinsky’s confrontational tactics and the President now favors working within the political system to effect change! That would explain his deceptive approach to every issue.
When we first met Mr Obama in 2007 and read his own autobiography, he made no effort to hide any of his political philosophy (Saul Alinsky) or his friends, mentors, and acquaintances (Rev. Wright, Bill Ayers, etc.) or his experience as a community organizer.
He was a Marxist in plain sight.
Breitbart reported that in 1998, a small Chicago theater company staged a play titled The Love Song of Saul Alinsky, dedicated to the life and politics of the radical community organizer whose methods Obama had practiced and taught on Chicago’s South Side.
Obama was not only in the audience, but also took the stage after one performance, participating in a panel discussion that was advertised in the poster for the play.
The play is a love song to Alinsky. In the first few minutes of the play, Alinsky plays Moses talking to God. The play glorifies Alinsky stealing food from restaurants and organizing others to do the same, explaining, “I saw it as a practical use of social ecology: you had members of the intellectual community, the hope of the future, eating regularly for six months, staying alive till they could make their contributions to society.”
Alinsky rips America: “My country … ‘tis of what the hell / And justice up a tree … How much can you sell / What’s in it for me.”
He grins about manipulating the Christian community to back his programs. He talks in glowing terms about engaging in Chicago politics with former Mayor Kelly.
Alinsky talks about being the first occupier – shutting down the O’Hare Airport by occupying all the toilet stalls, using chewing gum to “tie up the city, stop all traffic, and the shopping, in the Loop, and let everyone at City Hall know attention must be paid, and maybe we should talk about it.” As Alinsky said, “Students of the world, unite! You have nothing to lose but your juicy fruit.”
The play finishes with Alinsky announcing he’d rather go to Hell than Heaven. Why? “More comfortable there. You see, all my life I’ve been with the Have-Nots: here you’re a Have-Not if you’re short of money, there you’re a Have-Not if you’re short of virtue. I’d be asking more questions, organizing them. They’re my kind of people – Hell would be Heaven for me.”
In August 2008, The Boston Globe reported that Saul Alinsky’s son complimented Obama on having learned his father’s lessons well:
“ALL THE elements were present: the individual stories told by real people of their situations and hardships, the packed-to-the rafters crowd, the crowd’s chanting of key phrases and names, the action on the spot of texting and phoning to show instant support and commitment to jump into the political battle, the rallying selections of music, the setting of the agenda by the power people. The Democratic National Convention had all the elements of the perfectly organized event, Saul Alinsky style.”
“I am proud to see that my father’s model for organizing is being applied successfully beyond local community organizing to affect the Democratic campaign in 2008. It is a fine tribute to Saul Alinsky as we approach his 100th birthday.”

When the President was running for the Illinois State Senate, not only did he run with the endorsement of a local socialist organization, but he signed a contract with one of them – The New Party. The party was a Marxist Political coalition. Senator Obama sought out their nomination. He was successful in obtaining that endorsement which required that he sign a contract with the group.
Mr. Obama has fundamentally transformed the nation and he isn’t finished.
The transformation began insidiously in this country decades ago, before Obama appeared on the scene.
Mr. Obama and his minions have fundamentally transformed the relationship between the State and the people. The State now controls the people. Our country spies on us. We have lost our privacy and many of our rights.
We are living through a political revolution – a radical transformation.
There are no guns pointed at our heads. No armored tanks in the streets.
It is a stealth takeover that began with the inculcation of leftist ideology in our colleges, beginning with Catholic colleges, and which will now permeate our children k-12 and eventually children in pre-school.
At least when Bill Ayres and his communists were blowing up buildings, one clearly saw them for what they were. He, as did others who share a statist ideology, switched tactics. They have chosen to peacefully and gradually erode our society and our Constitutional Republic.
The plan is to replace our society with their visionary one of: collectivism; redistribution; unbridled entitlements funded by an economy of equal incomes; environmental justice; social justice; rule by agencies; and executive orders; all of which ignore the proper legislative channels. They want an end to the Republic and the rise of the democracy which fosters tyranny by the majority without the protections of representative government.
We are the collective who will be forced to work for the common good. The individual exists for the collective in such a society.
Mr. Obama certainly does want to fundamentally transform the nation and he is.
Moncia Crowley does a good job of explaining how Mr. Obama has fundamentally transformed the nation:
