Rudy Giuliani is getting death threats for saying he doesn’t think Barack Obama loves America. There have been demands from many in the media for Giuliani to apologize. The media has called him the babble-rouser, pathetic, trying to be relevant, and they say he was raised all wrong. Some have even called him a racist.
The leftist media is trying to tie Gov. Walker to former mayor Giuliani’s comments. As West said, he’s getting the “full Alinsky treatment.”
So is Rudy Giuliani.
Alinsky’s 5th rule is ridicule.
“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.
Rule number 12:
“Pick the 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.
Rule number 8 is to keep the pressure on.
There isn’t a great Alinsky conspiracy. They – meaning the far left – all just think alike and know what to do.
Lt. Col. West appeared on Fox & Friends Sunday morning and was asked to comment on the Giuliani affair. The Lt. Col. wants to know “what is wrong with our constitutional republic that it has to be [fundamentally] transformed?”
Watch Lt. Col. West:
Listen to Barack Obama:
The Islamic cleric Lt. Col. West referred to in the video is Sheikh Abdallah Bin Bayyah who Mr. Obama says is a moderate Muslim who helped combat ISIS.
In 2004, the “moderate” Muslim bin Bayyah issued a fatwa that advocated violent resistance against Americans fighting in Iraq. He called it a duty. He also served as vice president of a Muslim scholars group founded by a radical Muslim Brotherhood leader who has called “for the death of Jews and Americans”. In 2009, he [bin Bayyah] issued a fatwa against Israel as well that barred “all forms of normalization with Israel.”
Despite pressure from the public, Barack Obama stood by bin Bayyah.
In April 2012, Lt. Col. West was embroiled in a situation not unlike that of Giulianis’. West’s words at the time now seem prescient. He too refused to back down when he called the Congressional Progressive Caucus communists.
He was called a McCarthyite when in fact the people trying to shut down opposition are the far left. They are the McCarthyistas.
West called them exactly what they are.
The leftists panic when someone calls them out for being exactly what they are.
Communists and Socialists hide behind the label Progressive as they did in the early part of the last century. They prefer to hide in plain sight.
The Congressional Progressive Caucus was formed by the most radical left.
Although this Caucus is not large enough to control the Congressional agenda or even to break into the media, the existence of this group of 57 members of Congress, which includes 20 members of the Congressional Black Caucus and six members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, provides an important lever that can be used to advance workers’ issues and move the debate to the left in every Congressional District in the country.
Former congressman West saw what many still refuse to believe and, yes, it can happen here. It is happening here.
Watch his 2012 response:
Earlier this year, Rep. West wanted Barack Obama’s questionable Islamic connections investigated. Go to 09:40 on the video.
