Prolife group removes Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals from recommended book list

Back in February of this year I removed the links to LiveAction.org from my site because they listed Rules for Radicals by Saul Alinsky on their recommended books page. And when I contacted LiveAction via email and carried on a brief correspondence with their director of media, he insisted that they had thoroughly vetted the …

Prolife group recommends Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals

Update: As of Oct 5 2010, I am renewing the links to LiveAction.org because when I went through their website just now, I found that they have removed Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals from their list of Recommended Books. (You may have noticed that the link says prolifewebsites instead of recommendedbooks. It’s an error in …

Of LiveAction’s Acts of Lying and Playing by the Rules of Radical Organizer Saul Alinsky

There’s been talk on the internet and in some of the media recently about the tactics being used by Lila Rose and her group, LiveAction, “a new-media movement for life!” As glad as I am to see Planned Parenthood exposed for the morally bankrupt organization they are, I’m not proud to see anyone on the pro-life side …

Rules for radical revolutionaries, oh, excuse me, I meant community organizers

As I mentioned earlier, I’ve been reading Rules for Radicals by the late Saul Alinsky. Below are quotes from Rules and some comments. This is the first in a continuing series of posts on the book, the ideology, the movement, and the state of things in the country now. Please keep all this in mind …

Wake up, wise up, and rise up, Church

Yes, I saw the ruling. I wasn’t surprised by it, saw it coming. This has been in the works for a long time. Many years. Decades, even. From the 60’s onward (though, of course, it began long before then) this has been in the works. Read School of Darkness (which doesn’t mention homosexuality but reveals the …

Exposing Planned Parenthood, Good, Saul Alinsky, Not Good

Last night I wrote a post about LiveAction and the Saul Alinsky book they recommended, Rules for Radicals. I have to admit, even after reading Why Live Action did right and why we all should know that by Dr. Peter Kreeft, I still object to Alinsky’s ideas and to anyone in the pro-life movement using …

Obama, Pelosi, and the (new) relationship between church and state

Recently Nancy Pelosi asked, no, told the Catholic bishops to preach from their pulpits that the immigration reform she’s pushing is “manifesting our living the Gospel“. Obama wants the faith-based initiatives to push his green initiative with the EPA. Whatever happened to the much touted separation of church and state, huh? Well, I’ll tell you …

Folks who think Obama doesn’t get it, don’t get it

I’m tired of hearing folks saying that Obama doesn’t get it, that he doesn’t understand what he’s doing, that he doesn’t see what is happening or where he is taking the country. Oh, I say, but he does. He does see what’s happening. He does know that people hate his ideas. He does know that …

Saul Alinsky On Means and Ends, and the end of ethics

It’s been a while since I’ve written about Saul Alinsky and his book, Rules for Radicals, the apparent playbook for our brave new administration with its motto, “Change We Can Deceive In”. And I have to tell you, I’m forcing myself to do this. I’m forcing myself to open this book again and read from …
