"Hail Satan"

By Tom Quiner

The essence of leftist radicalism is an attack on the Eighth Commandment:

“You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.”

Rule five of Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals states:

“Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.” There is no defense. It’s irrational. It’s infuriating. It also works as a key pressure point to force the enemy into concessions.

Rule ten states:

“If you push a negative hard enough, it will push through and become a positive.”

And twelve states:

“Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions.”

In other words, the key to effecting political change is destroying people, says Mr. Alinsky. We see this tactic at work all the time from the Left, perhaps most glaringly in the Left’s unfettered rage against Sarah Palin. Seldom have we seen false witness played out on such a vast, public stage.
The author of all lies is Satan, to whom Mr. Alinsky fittingly dedicated “Rules for Radicals,” with this inscription:

“Lest we forget at least an over-the-shoulder acknowledgment to the very first radical: from all our legends, mythology, and history… 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.”

Democrats famously pushed hard to keep God’s name out of their party platform in the convention that nominated Barack Obama. They failed when the presider simply ignored and overrode the clear anti-God bias of the majority. Nonetheless, it revealed a disturbing animus toward the Judeo-Christian roots of our republic.
The video above demonstrates the conflicting tactics of the Left and the Right on a hotbed issue, abortion. This video was taken last summer in the Texas statehouse as Republicans attempted to pass a bill banning late-term abortion. While conservatives sang “Amazing Grace”, liberals tried to shout them down with “hail Satan.”
I’m sure Saul Alinsky smiled from his perch in hell.

    Scary thought regarding whom they follow… Key point to remember is that while the Church can know that select individuals are in Heaven, she cannot know who is in hell.

      You are correct. My last sentence may or may not be true. I threw it in in light of Alinsky’s dedication to Lucifer.

    Did you see that the Louisiana legislature passed and Bobby Jindal signed a law that prohibits groups that provide abortions from participating in sex education in the public schools?

      No, praise God. I have heard pro life teachers here in Des Moines bristle at Planned Parenthood’s presence in their schools.
