Rules #4 and #5 to make Radicals live by

From Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals

Rule 4: Make opponents live up to their own book of rules. “You can kill them with this, for they can no more obey their own rules than …than Leftists can live up to tolerance.

Rule 5: Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon. It’s hard to counterattack ridicule, and it infuriates the opposition, which then reacts to your advantage.

A recent crop of posters in Los Angeles depicting Obama as The Joker has raised cries of “racism” and “politically dangerous”. Never mind that every depiction anyone could come up with for Obama they threw at George W Bush the last eight years. This is another easy-to-see example of the Left’s hypocrisy and double standard. You can have community organizers, agitators and protesters when it comes to Republican policies and politicians. But the state run media circles the wagons when it comes to protests against leftist policies and politicians.

CNN and MSNBC can slander the American voters showing up at these townhall meetings all they want. All it will do is make their case for them. So some lobbying firm in DC sent out letters about the townhall meetings, instructing citizens who want to go and make their voices heard. So what? In the age of Soros, thousands of liberals and leftists have taken to the streets, embracing the thuggish tacticts of NPA and ACORN. Every one of those so-called leftists demonstrations and movements against Iraq was funded by a Usual Suspect list of left-wing organizations (i.e., Center for American Progress, Center for American Progress Action Fund, Media Matters, Independent Media Institute, Center for Investigative Reporting, Center for Public Integrity, and Independent Media Center)

How about Cindy Sheehan? Her “Campy Cindy” and media blitz were organized by Fenton Communications in San Francisco, which in turn was funded by – get this – True Majority, a non profit set up by Ben Cohen of Ben and Jerry “Hippie” Ice Cream. Have there been arrests of peaceful protests of Obama? Why yes, there have been. More than a dozen catholics, including former Presidential candidate Alan Keyes, were arrested when Obama visited Notre Dame. So go back to the drawing board Democrats and Leftists. This is acceptable public protest. You have to live with it. You invented it. David Axelrods private lobbying firm coined the term Astro Turfing. It might be wiser if you quit exhibiting your intolerance and simply found ways to make YOUR OWN argument.

Where have those Obama supporters been at the Townhall meetings anyway? Anyone? Anyone? Buehler? Buehler?
