DO SOMETHING DIZZY AND NEW, KEEP UP THE HULLABALOO! ALINSKY! ALINSKY! ALINSKY!

It warms my heart to see Saul Alinsky back in the rightwing papers -- and with Hillary Clinton as a bonus!  We've been around this mulberry bush before: Remember the 2012 primary campaign, when Newt Gingrich was talking about Obama's "Saul Alinsky radicalism," and supporters of his Republican opponents began calling Gingrich the real Alinsky?

Well, now they've stopped using this mudball as a medicine ball, and are pitching it at Clinton, claiming her youthful correspondence with Alinsky proves that the wife of triangulating trimmer Bill and the candidate who got outflanked from the left in 2008 is actually a dangerous radical. Chief among the complainants is National Review's Stanley Kurtz:
The difference between Hillary Clinton and Elizabeth Warren is that Warren flouts her ideology, thrilling the base by making the leftist case as few other Democrats dare. Ever the Alinskyite, Hillary prefers to achieve leftist ends incrementally, in pragmatic guise.
Ah, but that's all her craft and artfulness! It reminds me of what Kurtz said about Obama back in 2011, when our communist President signed a deep-cutting Republican budget:
Here’s my take on the puzzle of Obama’s leadership style. Obama is still every inch the Alinskyite organizer. He talks about uniting, even as he deliberately polarizes. He moves incrementally toward radical left goals, but never owns up to his ideology. Instead, he tries to work indirectly, by way of the constituencies he seeks to manipulate...

Obama is a bad negotiator because Alinskyite’s don’t negotiate, they intentionally polarize. As for their own groups, here they try to placate all factions and hide their own goals. That about describes Obama’s performance on the debt deal, which included a dollop of both of these stances...

The left yearns for Obama to take on the Tea Party in an overt ideological battle. But that is exactly the sort of thing Alinskyite organizers are forbidden to do.
Cutting taxes, deporting immigrants, bombing ISIS -- there's no end to the subterfuges Obama will employ to convince the unwary that he's not really a communist. One might grow old waiting for him to finally rip the mask off, but when you've got the Alinsky tipoff like Kurtz does, you know there has never been anything false about hope.

The brethren have a few years to try and explain to the public who Alinsky is, why he's such a menace, and how he's a hero to the liberals who don't talk about him one-hundredth as much as conservatives do. Go with God, fellas.

UPDATE. Among the many joys of comments, Spaghetti Lee seems to have gotten my titlular reference to Rodgers' and Hammerstein's Allegro, and doubled down with some musical comedy parody lyrics. Here's one to the tune of "Shipoopi" from The Music Man:
Now the girl who goes for a single-player plan is usually a hussy!
And the girl who goes for a strong public option's anything but fussy!
But a girl who goes for the corporate plan --
Won't make demands, even if she can --
She's the girl who listens to the man, the man named Alinsky!
I say we offer these to Mark Steyn.

    A thousand curses upon Alinski, that thrice damned traitor! How dare he reveal the secrets of the revolution! Now the infidel running dogs of the capitalist roaders have discovered The One's true intentions! We were THIS close to establishing the Socialist Workers Caliphate too. Replacing his birth certificate, assassinating the Chicago City Comptroller, killing comrade-martyr Bin-Laden to trick the masses, all for nothing.



    Oh well, at least we still have Hillary...

    It is clear that the chief tenet of true Alinskyism is to never actually do anything that might achieve the goals of Alinksyism. For example, every true American KNOWS Obama is going to confiscate all firearms. And the proof of this is that he has presided over the greatest reduction in restrictions on gun ownership and use in the history of the Republic.

    Similarly, Hillary will accomplish extreme ultra-left policies by actually implementing moderate right policies. It's all so subtle that no man's mind can detect its super subtletyness.

  10. Are we sure the Chicago City Comptroller is actually dead? There's speculation he faked his own death, got out by the skin of his teeth and is living on the Adriatic Coast with a new identity protected by a phalanx of Albanian bodyguards who make sure he never stays in one place too long. They say he escaped with the original Alinsky Memos and is feeding choice bits to Obama's foes in return for large deposits in a Swiss bank account, thereby lifting the lid on the Kenyan agenda and forcing the administration to hide its true intentions.

  69. Both Obama and Hillary Clinton are secret Leftists? This is just another item on a growing list: Things Rightwingers Believe That I Wish Were Actually True. Here's a few more items on that list:

    * Trickle-down economics works the way it's advertised. --- It would be great if that was so, since both major parties seem to believe in it. Broad-based prosperity would truly be right around the corner!

    * There are distinct groups of Good and Evil, and no shades of gray. --- Wouldn't THAT make things easier to understand! Both foreign policy and domestic policy would be simple.

    * A related item: America is the Greatest County on Earth, and is always "the good guy." --- Wow, who WOULDN'T want to believe that one? Being a flag-waving patriot with a clear conscience would feel great.

    * When you see wealthy people, you know that they've earned that wealth through hard work, and when you see poor people, you know that they've similarly earned their fate. --- This is the one I would most like to believe. It would mean that people really do get what they deserve, that we truly live in a merit-based system.

    Oh yeah, I read about this yesterday. You gotta love the Free Beacon's damning detail that Hillary sent off the letter to Alinsky with an FDR stamp. Yes, she could have put three duck stamps or something on the envelope, but the young traitor felt compelled to associate herself with the effete class traitor from Hyde Park, America's most communistic president until Johnson Carter Bill Clinton Obama.

    One rigorous right-wing exercise is to tell Paleos that HRC is corrupted by the Christkillers if she isn't secretly one herself, while trying to convince Jewish conservatives that her rabid defense of Israeli policy is insufficient and/or insincere.
