The Best Short Series on the Radical Left

David Horowitz' Alinsky, Beck, Satan and Me (in four parts) is one of the best short series on the hard left I have ever read. It may not be persuasive to those who are lucky enough not to have seen the serious radical left up close and personal, but I would urge people not to eject from the post out of sheer disbelief that people would intentionally seek to destroy a once great country, such as the one conservatives seek to restore.

The implication of his series of posts? Conservatives fight with a prostrate sense of moral outrage, radicals fight with all the mischief, deception, and chaos that they can possibly unleash. Radicals truly believe that you've got to go through hell before you get to heaven. Conservatives believe that heaven, if there is a heaven, is reserved for those who respect the sanctity of the human conscience and who take the moral imperative of "compassion" seriously.

From the first in the short series:

Glenn Beck will be on vacation this week but when he returns on the 24th he has invited me to come to New York to talk to him on camera about Saul Alinsky, the strategy guru of the Obama era. For the the Hillary-Soros generation of johnny-come-lately radicals and their ACORN footsoldiers, Alinksy is their Sun-Tzu and his book Rules for Radicals is the field manual for their struggle. I thought while I'm refreshing my acquaintance with this destructive fellow and re-reading his text, I would share my thoughts with you, serially over the next week.

For this first post, let's just focus on the dedication of the book - to Satan:

"Lest we forget, an over-the-shoulder acknowledgment to the very first radical:" (Pause there for second. Now continue): "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."
