Who is Saul Alinsky?
Two types of people in the world have heard of Saul Alinsky: a tiny fringe of leftist organizers, and a gigantic core of right-wing America.
Most liberals have never heard of Saul Alinsky, but according to the new Right Wing Narrative, he's a critical intellectual founding father to the Socialist Revolution being led by Barack Hussein Obama.
Saul Alinsky was the founder of Chicago community organizing and the author of numerous books including his final publication, Rules for Radicals.
Alinsky has a scary Jewish-Russian name (although he was born and raised in the US), and 40 years after his death, his ghost terrifies the paranoid mainstream. He is even embedded in the "roots" of Glenn Beck's ever-growing "Tree of Revolution."
For those who find scary the thought of organizing poor people to counter the power of corporations, wealthy individuals, and the state, Alinsky (and his intellectual descendent, Obama) is an enemy of American culture and freedom.
