The Make Love Not War Crowd is now painting laser dots on the forehead of their enemies from a satellite and vaporizing them with a push of a button. Where have all the flowers gone…?
There were two hippies 42 years ago. One grew his hair and played his guitar at coffeehouses and moratoriums while the other grew his anger and bombed the Pentagon. The former is now trying to save his country from the latter.
The Angry Radical is now driving this ship, and let me tell you brother…it ain’t no Yellow Submarine! Do you know who their guiding light was and still is? Do you know whose lilting lyrics they were memorizing while we were singing, So we sailed up to the sun till we found the sea of green And we lived beneath the waves In our yellow submarine? They were moving and grooving to;
“‘The organizer’s first job is to create the issues or problems,’ and ‘organizations must be based on many issues.’ The organizer ‘must first rub raw the resentments of the people of the community; fan the latent hostilities of many of the people to the point of overt expression. He must search out controversy and issues, rather than avoid them, for unless there is controversy people are not concerned enough to act. . . . An organizer must stir up dissatisfaction and discontent.'”– Saul Alinsky
Community Organizer…gee, where have I heard that term before? I have a crisp $100 bill for anyone who can produce a son or daughter who endured a full semester in Professor Obama’s Law class…and emerged loving their country! Obama’s philosophical and intellectual mentor was Saul Alinsky! Oh, it gets way better! Do you know who Alinsky’s guiding light was? Do you wonder where Alinsky derived his philosophical and intellectual nourishment from? Lets’ take a look at his own words in the dedication of his “Rules for Radicals” classic, shall we?
“Lest we forget at least an over-the-shoulder acknowledgment to the very first radical: from all our legends, mythology, and history (and who is to know where mythology leaves off and history begins — or which is which), 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
For those of you still living beneath the waves, now might be a good time to join the rest of us topside as they say. And to those of you topside who’ve become so pissed you see red everywhere you look…I have an urgent appeal!
They want us angry, confused and at each other’s throats. It’s right there in print! And you know what? The very thing they want, we are starting to give them…in spades! We’re becoming so angry we can’t see straight…the Libertarian self-righteously questioning the Republican’s Conservative credentials (rightly so in many cases by the way!). Can we all put the brakes on just a minute? Can we not see where it is they are herding us? Instead of heeding their call to anger, why not heed the call from the one who endowed us with our greatest blessing to begin with?
Let this be our call to arms alright…let this be our call to arm ourselves with awareness, courage and LOVE! These are the things they have no silver bullet for! God has given us all the tools we need! And my friends, I am not talking about the Mayan Moon Goddess your whacked out sister is selling! You know the one who promotes herself as clergy with candles, incense and loving compassion and tolerance for all…who happen to share her twisted views!
Coincidently, LOVE is the voice I heard calling me last week.
https://shutupnsing.wordpress.com/2011/09/25/the-sunday-morning-tune-up-september-25th-edition/ Above the waves is a very dangerous world. We have been guided and conditioned for so long now, to listen and trust only certain voices. Is it possible that when we have multiple occasions of teachers punishing students for saying “God Bless You.”, or suspending students for exercising their 1st Amendment Right to express their Faith in response to the teacher forcing his morality on the student…Is it possibly time to start listening to and trusting in ourselves and what our own hearts are telling us? Trust in that and you will hear the call…
