So just who the hell is this guy Saul Alinski?
Before Obama I do not recall hearing of him, though now his name is frequently mentioned in connection with both Hillary Clinton and Obama.
So I finally picked up a copy of his book, Rules For Radicals. the other day. Interesting book and an interesting guyâan eye-opener for those interested in whatâs happening in America today.
The following is some online information regarding this.
(Excerpt from Wikipedia)
âThe documentary The Democratic Promise: Saul Alinsky and His Legacy, states that âAlinsky championed new ways to organize the poor and powerless that created a backyard revolution in cities across America.â Many important community and labor organizers came from the âAlinsky School,â including Ed Chambers. Alinsky formed the Industrial Areas Foundation (IAF) in 1940, and Chambers became its Executive Director after Alinsky died. Since the IAFâs formation, hundreds of professional community and labor organizers and thousands of community and labor leaders have attended its workshops. Fred Ross, who worked for Alinsky, was the principal mentor for Cesar Chavez and Dolores Huerta. In Hillary Clintonâs senior honors thesis at Wellesley College, Clinton noted that Alinskyâs personal efforts were a large part of his method. She later noted that although she agreed with his notion of self-empowernment she disagreed with his assessment that the system could only change from the outside. In her memoir, Living History, Hillary Clinton wrote that Alinsky offered her a job after she graduated from Wellesley College, but she chose instead to attend Yale Law School...
