Obama's influences include radicals, a terrorist and felon writes Salim Mansur:
Among those with whom Obama worked in Chicago's corrupt politics were the radical preachers Rev. Jeremiah Wright and Father Michael Pfleger, the unrepentant terrorist Bill Ayers, and the convicted felon Antoin Rezko.Update: John McCain finally gets it.
Alinsky was a radical socialist. He invented community organizing as a political camouflage for subverting America's democracy and capitalist economy.
In Rules For Radicals, Alinsky described the means and ends of his politics as did Karl Marx in the Communist Manifesto. Alinsky wrote, "Make the enemy live up to their (sic) own book of rules. You can kill them with this, for they can no more obey their own rules than the Christian church can live up to Christianity."
This is the Trojan horse principle of destroying the enemy -- capitalism and democracy -- from the inside.
