Since When Has Obama Believed in “Self-Reliance?”

COMMUNITY ORGANIZING TEACHES THE EXACT OPPOSITE

by Sharon Rondeau

Saul Alinsky is credited with beginning the community organizing movement in the 1950s in Chicago and other cities throughout the U.S.

(Oct. 17, 2012) — During the last few minutes of Tuesday’s presidential debate, Obama said that he advocates “self-reliance and individual initiative,” but history does not support his statement.

As a community organizer in Chicago, Obama was working to gather large numbers of people together to advocate for “change.”  As Byron York of National Review Online described it, a specific group of people who perceived themselves as disenfranchised were targeted and community organizers would begin “agitating them until they become so upset about their condition that they take collective action to put pressure on local, state, or federal officials to fix the problem, often by giving the affected group money.”

Obama believes in socialism based on his comment about “spreading the wealth around” during the 2008 campaign.  Socialism is collectivist in nature, not individualist.  Socialism, or collectivism, requires that individuals sacrifice their own ambitions for the advancement of the society.  It has been described as “the subjugation of the individual to a group — whether to a race, class or state does not matter. Collectivism holds that man must be chained to collective action and collective thought for the sake of what is called ‘the common good’.”

Collectivism is also described as “any…outlook that emphasizes the interdependence of every human being. Collectivism is a basic cultural element that exists as the reverse of individualism in human nature (in the same way high context culture exists as the reverse of low context culture), and stresses the priority of group goals over individual goals and the importance of cohesion within social groups (such as an “in-group”, in what specific context it is defined). Collectivists usually focus on community, society, or nation.”

If Obama believed in “individual initiative,” he would promote small, medium and large business growth by lowering taxes and relaxing regulations to promote expansion and hiring  Instead, his Environmental Protection Agency has issued some of the most restrictive regulations on energy companies, causing many to close and workers to be laid off, something Obama predicted before he was elected.

According to one writer, Obama focused on helping blacks over whites as a community organizer in the mid-1980s in Chicago.  Obama’s books indicate that he was confused about his identity, having one black parent and one white parent, and race appears to be a central theme.  His background is replete with influence and mentoring from outspoken radical leftists in Chicago.

Obama’s community organizing efforts were based on Saul Alinsky’s model for ushering in change by confrontational means.  Alinsky wrote Rules for Radicals, which instructs its disciples to “pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it” in regard to the perceived enemy.  Alinsky’s tactics were to “infiltrate the system from within.” Alinsky maintained relationships with Catholic leaders, members of the Mafia, and prominent business owners.  He was successful in convincing Catholic bishops to contribute large sums of money to his programs.

Cesar Chavez, to whom Obama just dedicated a national monument, was reportedly “an Alinsky disciple.”  So was Hillary Clinton.  Alinsky was hired by “the black community” in Rochester, NY in 1964 to “convince” Eastman Kodak to hire more blacks and advocate for labor unions.  After the National Guard had to be summoned to quell “a bloody race riot,” Kodak acquiesced to the mob’s demands.

A major supporter of Obama in 2008 was labor unions.  He was a member of the New Party, an organization which adovcated socialism, while in the Chicago legislature.

Alinsky’s goal was to engage “the middle class” in organizing, which included “social and political pressure” being placed on “megacorporations.”  He was seeking to effect a “peaceful revolution.”  The riot in Rochester had been organized “with the assistance of a dynamic local black leader, the Reverend Franklin Florence, who’d been close to Malcolm X.”

Why does it always seem to come back to Malcolm X?

Malcolm X gave a speech in Rochester after the “the riots” and just days before his death.  During the speech, Malcolm claimed that the press routinely misrepresented the black community.  In 2009, Obama’s former communication spokesperson had proudly proclaimed that the Obama campaign had controlled the media.

Working as an attorney for ACORN in the 1980s in Chicago, Obama pressured banks to provide loans to low-income people who were not credit-worthy, a practice which has been traced to the financial collapse of 2008.  Obama signed the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act in 2010 which tightened regulations on banks under the auspices of “reining in abusive lending practices.”

Obama’s alleged roommate at both Occidental College and Columbia University, Phil Boerner, allegedly told PBS that Obama wrote of his ambitions, “…racial divisions are more intense in Chicago, ‘separate and unequal'”…, describing a gap he would later work hard to bridge.”  Obama reportedly adopted Chicago as his new “hometown” after having identified Jakarta, Indonesia as “my old hometown.”  His original “home town” has been reported as “probably Honolulu,” but no hospital has confirmed that he was born there.

Obama has also claimed that “home” was the country of Kenya, as did his publicist for 16 years.

PBS produced a documentary of the lives of Obama and Romney earlier this month preceded by numerous chapters on segments of each man’s life, including poetry allegedly written by Obama while at Occidental.  As Obama’s college transcripts and applications have not been released, how did PBS obtain the poetry, and how do we know by whom and when it was published?  If Obama’s poetry was in a “Special Collection” at Occidental, why has the public not heard about it sooner?

A blogger who has indicated apparent “insider” knowledge of Obama’s life reported that in its documentary, PBS “find no evidence Obama attended Columbia.”  He also suggests a “biological” connection between Obama and Malcolm X.

Obama’s election to the presidency may have been all about his skin tone rather than his capabilities.  As Infowars reported earlier this week, blacks are threatening to stage “race riots” and worse if Obama is not re-elected.  Well-known writer Thomas Sowell agrees.  Earlier this year, a Texas judge said that if Obama were re-elected, a civil war could ensue.

“Race riots” is one reason allegedly provided by the U.S. Supreme Court for refusing to evaluate cases challenging Obama’s constitutional eligibility, identity and constitutional violations which could ultimately remove him from the White House.

The U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights defend individual rights, self-reliance and personal initiative, while the Obama-Alinsky model does not.  The Alinsky training which Obama received in Chicago promotes group efforts to achieve money, jobs and other benefits to which people in the movement perceive themselves to be “entitled.”
