Default Saul Alinsky's 'Rules for Radicals,'

According to Boone, Obama is using "Rules for Radicals" as his playbook. Actually, it looks a lot like Fox News' playbook. Rule #2: “Never go outside the expertise of your people.” It results in confusion, fear and retreat. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rules_for_Radicals

This is all sillyness.

Why would anyone care what Pat Boone thinks? Has he any particular expertise or competence in matters political?

I can't see why anyone would care what he thinks, unless they just liked him, or his views, or thought he was dreamy back in the day.

As to the original question, I bet he has some Marxist leanings, but I think he would be restricted in what he can and cannot do, as the POTUS.

If actions speak louder than words, then I hope I never know if he is a true believer in the political, economic, and social theory's of Karl Marx.

I don't believe in the inevitability of socialism or communism.

Pat Boone, Hahaha

He speaks.

Life goes on.

Hey Slap:

In the responses so far, Alinsky's rules 5 and 13 are covered. Interesting.

Default Apparently,

I am just a few rules away from a position as a community organizer.

Next step, Oval Office.

In all fairness to Mr. Boone, no one cares what I say either. I wonder. If the President publicly declared himself an avowed Marxist, what would change?

Default Same ole same ole

I don't understand why anyone even pays attention to CPAC. They are like the Moral Majority - a bunch of elitists who think they know better than everyone else who are looking to create a caste society with their membership being the oligarchical leadership. They are the Moral Majority in expensive suits.

Default A Chicago Doubleheader

For The Communist Labor Party of America (CLP), "Founding Convention" -- Chicago, IL -- Aug. 31 - Sept. 5, 1919;



And for The (old) Communist Party of America (CPA), "Founding Convention" -- Chicago, IL -- Sept. 1 - 7, 1919;



But, alas, Chicago was abandoned by the Comintern for the eastern shore of Lake Michigan to create The United Communist Party of America (UCP), "Joint Unity Convention" -- Bridgman, MI -- May 26 - 31, 1920;



But wait, the story goes on and on, including even Woodstock ("Joint Unity Convention" -- near Woodstock, NY -- May 15 - 28, 1921), where a very young Pat Boone was warmup for Pete Seeger.

And so it went - ref. The Communist Party of America (1919-1946) - Downloadable Documents.

Excellent Mike! and yes it gets even better. A couple of months ago I was watching a documentary about Pete Seeger who actually had a short lived popular TV show called Hoot-Anny (can't spell) it was originally believed that he was a Conservative Republican type When his true views became known the show was canceled and I imagine Pat Boone was way down the road from him by that time. Two points: this it is very illustrative of how true Marxism works..... They mystify and surprise. Pat Boone is very well versed in how it works, he has also been very Political since the 1950's and 1960's even had a popular song about Vietnam draft dodgers called "Wish You Were Here" in the 60's, So I would not sell the guy short, he is still very influential inside conservative fund raising groups.

IMO Chicago is and always has been the key to the President's true views. A lot of Radical Political Infrstructure is still there. The 68 Presidential Convention Riots were no accident and they had tremendous support in order to pull that off. They stopped that for awhile and now just do elections

Default Hey Slap,

My post was meant as an example of "effective" agitprop - seven factoids (the meetings and the logos, through Woodstock 1921), followed by a non-factual zinger.

In 1921, Pete Seeger was 2; and Pat Boone was a dozen years away from being conceived.

In 1936, when Boone was 2, Seeger was 17 and a member of the Young Communist League. Boone was a good ole Nashville boy from age 2; at 17, a member of the Church of Christ.

Seeger and Boone did have one thing in common; they both "covered" songs by African-American artists.

Since you are genuinely serious about this topic, you deserve today's bloodhound award:



Regards

Mike

"Reville for Radicals" and "Rules for Radicals" by Alinsky are great books. He wrote of shareholder activism years ago.

Thumbs up Sorta Seriuos? I Just Like Pat Boone

Mike, I am serious from the standpoint that Pat Boone is serious and I don't think it is without some factual basis on Pat's part. Whether the President is a Marxist or not I don't know, only he really knows and his close advisor's. Does/did he and or his advisor's use Marxist techniques for political manipulation.....I have no doubt about that. Marx understood how to motivate and manipulate Social Groups and use that to win/manipulate elections. The Conservative movement/Republican party had better learn to respect the man (Marx) and his methods or they are likely to face extinction in the near future He (Marx) is easy to beat which is why I am continually amazed at some of the right wing rhetoric that is put out, it is almost as if the left paid the right to screw things up.

Slap,

If you think there is a difference between the Democrats and the Republicans, then you are not getting the joke.
