Community Organizing

Did the Dems properly vet their Presidential candidate?  What is a community organizer, and what does it say about someone’s politics?

Saul Alinsky’s is considered the father of Community Organizing, and wrote Rules For Radicals a year before his death in 1973 for the new generation of radicals.  Here is its dedication:

Lest we forget at least an over-the-shoulder acknowledgment to the very first radical: from all our legends, mythology, and history (and who is to know where mythology leaves off and history begins — or which is which), the first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom — Lucifer.

He dedicated his book to Lucifer?

Perhaps that’s unfair, perhaps he was being “mischevious” as the Wikipedia puts it.  But still, according to this, Community Organizing seems dedicated to using the working class – even creating conditions that frustrate them into calling for change – to foment a revolution to overthrow Democracy and Capitalism and install Communism.  All the work in the neighborhoods is done for that end, not to help people.
