CEDAR FALLS -- Resist Roger White’s deception about the Democrat/liberal/progressive/socialist/communist party's lies: Here’s why: While Marx and Engels were the philosophers, Saul Alinsky was the field general for socialism/communism. He wrote two influential “How to” documents. Here’s the headlines of “Rules for Radicals”:
1. Power is not only what you have but what the enemy thinks you have. 2. Never go outside the experience of your people. 3. Whenever possible, go outside the experience of the enemy. 4. Make the enemy live up to their own book of rules. 5. Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon. 6. A good tactic is one that your people enjoy. 7. A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag. 8. Keep the pressure on. 9. The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself. 10. The major premise for tactics is the development of operations that will maintain a constant pressure upon the opposition. 11. If your push a negative hard and deep enough it will break through into its own counter-side. 12. The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative. 13. Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.
