I ran onto this quotation from Andy McCarthy’s The Grand Jihad, which seemed helpful:
It is vital to remember that the president is an Alinskyite, so steeped in the ideology of the seminal community organizer that he became a top instructor in Alinskyite tactics for other up-and-coming radicals. Alinksyites are fifth-columnists. They have, in substance, the same goals as open revolutionaries: overthrowing the existing free-market republic and replacing it with a radical’s utopia. That is why Obama could befriend such unrepentant former terrorists as Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn and take inspiration from Jeremiah Wright, a black-liberation theologist.
Alinskyites, though, are more sophisticated, patient, and practical. They bore in, hollowing out the system from within, taking on the appearance and argot of the heartland. Their single, animating goal is to overthrow the capitalist social order, which they claim to see as racist, corrupt, exploitative, imperialist, etc. Everything else —including the cultivation of like-minded Islamists—is negotiable: They reserve the right to take any position on any matter, to say anything at any time, based on the ebb and flow of popular opinion. That keeps them politically viable while they radically transform society. Transform it into what, they haven’t worked out in great detail… except that it will be perfect, communal, equal, and just.
Well that clears up the matter of Obama’s words, where what he says today doesn’t match what he said yesterday, and will not match what he says tomorrow, and nobody ever calls him on it. He is very skilled at the use of straw men (answering questions nobody asked), logical fallacies, and blame shifting, but who notices?
