Obama Quotes Alinsky in Speech to Young Israelis

In his address in Jerusalem today, President Obama channeled Saul Alinsky, citing the radical community organizer’s defining mantra as he urged young Israelis to “create change” to nudge their leadership to act.

Obama told a crowd of college students at Jerusalem’s main convention center that Israel “has the wisdom to see the world as it is, but also the courage to see the world as it should be.”

One of Alinsky’s major themes was working with the world as it “is” to turn it into the world as “it should be.”

In his defining work, “Rules for Radicals,” which he dedicated to “the first rebel,” Lucifer, Alinsky used those words to lay out his main agenda. He asserted radical change must be brought about by working within a system instead of attacking it from the outside.

“It is necessary to begin where the world is if we are going to change it to what we think it should be. That means working in the system,” wrote Alinsky.

  • THATS the reason he went to Israel, to get the only democratic country in the mid-east headed toward socialism-communism by creating dissention among the youth of the country.

    Obozo’s Change, from freedom to slavery, Forward, with my Hitler plan to be a dictator. This is his plan the Alinsky plan, the Stalin Plan, Hitler plan for sure Mien Kampf “My Struggle” Islam now says Jihad means “My Struggle”. Best selling book in islamist lands is Mien Kampf and they learn it as well as the demonic Quran. Obozo is one of them and just like them and have they ever kept a agreement? NO.

    One can see him now before or during WWII asking Polish, Lithuanian, French or Russian kids to “put themselves in the shoes of the Nazi’s”. KTNN!

    We don’t know what crap he told the Israel leaders, but the Alinsky B.S. lies he told the students is pure leftist propaganda. He would love to foment trouble in the holy land. That would be a feather in his rag-head cap.

  • Ah excuse me those “young Israeli’s” must be muslim Israeli’s take a close look at them what they are wearing and what the shirts say. Just another planed outing for the fraud in chief who is to chicken to go to the Knesset were he would have been strung up.

    Obama once again proves by his own words and actions exactly what he really is: a fifth columnist Marxist sonofabitch.

  • Really? WOW! so that’s the reason why he didn’t want the Jewish media there reporting on what he said. PM Netanyahu, I know you are respectful and gracious but the American people will not EVER hold you in contempt if you immediately end the visit and kick him out of the country cause his intent is to cause YOU more harm than good.

    This evil, fraudulent, lying manipulator is not content to pervert the minds of American youth alone, he now has to go and infect the minds of young Israelis as well. This is the guy who another man testified to having gay sex with while smoking crack in the back of a limo. This is the guy who demands the Catholic Church pay for abortion drugs and contraceptives for its employees in Catholic run organizations. This is the guy who forced homosexuality on the American military and is forcing homosexual marriage on the American people. The man is despicable. He is a liar and a fraud of the highest order and I absolutely care not what his admirers say about him. They can all go to the same place he is going to. I’m tired of listening to him and them. America is at a major crossroads, a turning point. It’s too late to use the political system and “vote the bums out.” It’s not going to do anything to sign petitions or write letters to Congressmen or Senators. The only thing (and you know it as well as I) that is going to work is for the American people, at least the majority of them, to stand as one. We will eventually have to physically force them to obey the Constitution and the will of the people. Will we be up to the task our founding fathers authorized for us in our founding documents? Will we be ready, will we be willing?
