Left's Targeting of Kavanaugh Taken From Alinsky Playbook

Left's Targeting of Kavanaugh Taken From Alinsky Playbook


Jerry Newcombe By Wednesday, 19 September 2018 05:04 PM EDT Current | Bio | Archive

Judge Brett Kavanaugh was on track — and hopefully remains so — to become the next U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice. But then came a last minute allegation of attempted rape.

Sen. Diane Feinstein, D-Calif., sat on the letter accusing Kavanaugh through the summer and only recently revealed its contents at the last minute.

When Kavanaugh heard of the charge, that he allegedly tried to rape a girl, he declared, "I categorically and unequivocally deny this allegation. I did not do this back in high school or at any time."

The accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, is a biostatistician and research psychologist teaching in California at Stanford University, and at Palo Alto University.

The alleged incident complained of occurred in the early 1980s.

Emma Brown reports in The Washington Post on Sept. 16, 2018, "Earlier this summer, Christine Blasey Ford wrote a confidential letter to a senior Democratic lawmaker alleging that Supreme Court nominee Brett M. Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her more than three decades ago, when they were high school students in suburban Maryland."

Ford claims that Kavanaugh and his friend, Mark Judge, were "stumbling drunk," and that the former tried to rape her until Judge interfered, and she was able to escape.

Mark Judge denies this story. According to Emma Brown’s story, Judge said, "It’s just absolutely nuts. I never saw Brett act that way." She adds that Judge "told the New York Times that Kavanaugh was a 'brilliant student' who loved sports and was not 'into anything crazy or illegal.'"

Sixty-five women who knew Brett Kavanaugh as far back as those days have come forward to positively testify on behalf of his character. Additionally, his accuser is reported to be an anti-Trump activist. Of course, the facts should be heard and weighed before the Kavanaugh's confirmation vote.

Ben Shapiro asks six important questions to answer about this allegation of sexual assault.

Meanwhile, there is a pattern here from the left. Just when it looks like a conservative might attain a high position, like a seat on the U.S. Supreme Court, all of a sudden come accusers out of the woodwork — maybe even alleging something that supposedly took place decades ago.

This is reminiscent of last-minute allegations of sexual harassment against Clarence Thomas, who decried the "high tech lynching" the left attempted against him in 1991 to block him from sitting on the high court.

These are the same people who for more than 20 years gave Bill Clinton a pass.

Too often the left has begun to take the principles of  the Machiavellian Marxist community organizer from Chicago, Saul Alinsky (1909-1972), and apply them to virtually every position of political power.

Alinsky studied organized crime and was in effect tutored by Al Capone’s successor, Frank Nitti — the boss of Chicago’s chief crime mob — and he had great influence on Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.

Alinsky’s seminal book was the 1971 "Rules for Radicals," a work he dedicated to Satan:

"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."

Alinksy said, "The end justifies almost any means. All effective actions require the passport of morality. You do what you can and clothe it in moral garments . . . moral rationalization is indispensable at times of action, whether to justify the selection or the use of ends and means."

He also said, "All values and factors are relative."

Rule number four in his "Rules for Radicals" is, "Make opponents live up to their own book of rules."

He added, "You can kill them with this, for they can no more obey their own rules than the Christian church can live up to Christianity."

With this kind of thinking, virtually no Christian or person of good will could run for office because no one is perfect. Yet our 30th president, Calvin Coolidge, once said, "If good men don’t hold office, bad men will."

There is a dehumanizing element to Alinsky’s treatment of those they disagree with, "Treat opponents not as persons, but as symbols representing interests or ideas which [the Radical] believes inimical to the welfare of the people."

In a different context, Erick Erickson and Bill Blankschaen observed, "What we are seeing is a scorched-earth, take-no-prisoners approach as the wildfire burns across our land. It is not enough that Christians be quiet.  . . . There is one key reason that those on the left must force their beliefs on the rest of us: if they didn’t force their craziness on us, we would never embrace it."

That point is particularly relevant to who sits on the Supreme Court. A judicial body imposing much of its craziness on this country by judicial fiat. As a potential justice who would return the court to its constitutional moorings stands sketchily accused, Saul Alinsky would be proud.
