Recently, when disrupters showed up at a Trump rally in Chicago, the first thing that came to mind was that Americaâ€™s most notorious community organizer could be the wizardÂ behind the curtainÂ orchestrating what was being sold as an organic occurrence.
In Saul Alinskyâ€™s 1971 bookÂ Rules for Radicals, the late author could have been describing Obamaâ€™s last seven years in office when he wrote that an efficacious organizer should be â€œan abrasive agent to rub raw the resentments of the people of the community; to fan latent hostilities of many of the people to the point of overt expressions.â€
The father of community organizing taught that once people are â€œwhipped up to a fighting pitch,â€ the agitated could be directed to participate in rowdy demonstrations. By employing those techniques on the international level, Alinskyâ€™s star pupil, Barack Obama, has successfully managed to whip up global chaos.
Back in Chicago, in the early 1980â€™s,Â Greg GalluzzoÂ taught student Barack Obama to avoid the spotlight because the fundamental goal of a grassroots activist is to lead â€œindigenousâ€ communities to believe they were taking action independently.
As 2016 election protests continue to gather steam, it appears as if Galluzzoâ€™s street-smart pupil is having trouble hiding his preoccupation with the Republican candidates.
Granted, thus far, Obama has not acknowledged Weather Underground bomber buddyÂ Bill AyersÂ protesting Trump in Chicago. Â In addition, the president has been low key aboutÂ Black Lives MatterÂ Chicago leader Aislinn Pulley visiting the White House for Black History month a few weeksÂ before #BLMÂ shut Trump down in Chicago.
Obama has even managed to remain mum about his associations withÂ Soros-financed MoveOn.org, Chicagoâ€™s DemocraticÂ Socialists of AmericaÂ (DSA), and theÂ Communist Party USA, all of whom have also caused disruptions at recent Trump rallies.
In addition to some of the presidentâ€™s dearest friends, the motley crew of community-organizing characters on the march also includes like-mindedÂ Bernie supportersÂ who have promised that if Donald J. Trump wins the Republican nomination,Â mass civil disobedienceÂ is scheduled to take place that will makeÂ Chicagoâ€™s 1968Â â€œBattle of Michigan Avenueâ€ seem like a block party.
Thatâ€™s why, despite a poor attempt at keeping a low profile, if Obama believes that Alinsky-style â€œdirect actionâ€ possesses the power to keep a Republican billionaire populist or a â€œtea baggingâ€ Constitutionalist out of the White House, itâ€™s doubtful he will be able to sit back and let the skills he honed in Chicago go to waste.
After years of observing this presidentâ€™s partisan bullying, one thing is certain, try as he might to hide it, over the last two terms, Barack Obamaâ€™s intrinsic dedication to Alinsky tactics has never wavered.
Remember when the New Black Panthers intimidated white voters withÂ billy clubsÂ at a Philadelphia polling place during the 2008 election? Â Then, remember how the Tea Party was targeted and harassedÂ by the IRSÂ prior to the 2012 election?
In 2008, Saul Alinskyâ€™s sonÂ L. David AlinskyÂ wrote the following about his fatherâ€™s most dedicated former student:
Barack Obama’s training in Chicago by the great community organizers is showing its effectiveness. It is an amazingly powerful format, and the method of my late father always works to get the message out and get the supporters on board. When executed meticulously and thoughtfully, it is a powerful strategy for initiating change and making it really happen. Obama learned his lesson well.
Thatâ€™s why, if America is fundamentally transforming into an Alinsky playground, and if prior to a public demonstration Black Lives Matter Chicago just happens to suddenly drop in on the White House, Barack Obama is a suspect.
Think of it! Every time Obama disparages a Republican candidate, heâ€™s merely exercising the Alinsky tactic ofÂ ridiculeÂ that served him well on the Southside of Chicago.
Recently, at a St. Patrickâ€™s Day gathering Obama had this to say:
The longer that we allow the political rhetoric of late to continue, and the longer that we tacitly accept it, we create a permission structure that allows the animosity in one corner of our politics to infect our broader society. And animosity breeds animosity.
By choosing to forgo nibbling on Irish Soda bread and discussing hisÂ Moneygall roots, Â Obama turned a luncheon into an opportunity to fuel street-level strife.Â By doing what comes naturally, Alinskyâ€™s charge purposely contributed to the â€œvicious atmosphereâ€ he claims to reject.
And for those who tend to compartmentalize, those St. Patrickâ€™s Day sentiments came from aÂ verbally vindictiveÂ pol who, when not busy stirring up international turmoil, breeds domestic animosity by depicting white Americans as religious fanatic gunslingers looking to express â€œantipathy toward peoplewho arenâ€™t like them.â€
In keeping with that line of thinking, Barack Obama habitually panders to African Americans, Latinos, young voters, and women.Â By doing so, this president confirms that the principal objective of everything he says and does is directly related to organizing communities to take action on behalf of the leftâ€™s interests.
Yet despite those and other not-so-well-hidden attempts to practice street activism, Obama does seem somewhat uneasy.
Recently, at a DNC event in Austin, Texas, Barack expressed apprehension when heÂ pointed out thatÂ â€œChange doesnâ€™t happen overnightâ€¦we never get 100Â percent of change.â€
Apart from the personal satisfaction this subversive enjoys from the extensive damage heâ€™s already done to America, if ever there were a reason to drag into the middle of the Oval Office theÂ infamous chalkboardÂ young Barry used when marshaling the Chicago multitudes, fear that â€œHope and Changeâ€ will be toppled by someone like Trump would be that reason.
Unconvinced? Letâ€™s remember that prior to the failed Arab Spring it wasÂ Obama that helpedÂ to organize the Arab street.
So, as the â€œlargest civil disobedience action of the centuryâ€ looms on the American street, there is little doubt that deep in the bowels of the White House Barack Obama isÂ organizing DemocratsÂ to usher in theÂ Democracy Spring.
