Saul Alinsky’s Radical Rule #9: “The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself.”
Barack Obama’s minions are living up to #9 full-force, tweeting and videotaping and writing threats all over the place.
Case in point, convicted rapist and faux-celebrity (why???) Mike Tyson had said this deep thought about the Zimmerman/Trayvon non-story:
“It’s a disgrace that man hasn’t been dragged out of his house and tied to a car and taken away. That’s the only kind of retribution that people like that understand. It’s a disgrace that man hasn’t been shot yet. Forget about him being arrested–the fact that he hasn’t been shot yet is a disgrace. That’s how I feel personally about it.”
Why anyone would ask Mike Tyson for a quote about anything is beyond me—but there it is.
Russell Simmons tweeted: “Let’s seek justice for Trayvon Martin. We will fight for a society that is compassionate and loving, not one that pre-judges and stereotypes.”
What is Simmons saying? How can Simmons and his many thousands of followers “seek justice” on their own? And isn’t he “pre-judging” Zimmerman? But I digress…
Director Spike Lee tweeted to his own quarter-million fans the incorrect home address of George Zimmerman. His threatening tweet said, “Reach out and touch him.” The elderly VICTIMS of Lee’s tweet had to escape for their lives when bad guys started knocking at their door looking for Zimmerman. Spike Lee apologized for the tweet and offered the couple cash to make up for it…
Roseanne Barr—a self-proclaimed Marxist—did what Spike Lee originally intended to do and actually got Zimmerman’s address correct when she tweeted it to her 110,000+ followers. Barr stated, “I thought it was good to let ppl know you can’t hide anymore…&…If Zimmerman isn’t arrested I’ll rt his address again…maybe go 2 his house myself.”
Al Sharpton, MSNBC host who first became prominent during the Tawana Brawley case, called on his National Action Network to incite violence. Sharpton said: “I will speak about how the National Action Network will move to the next level if Zimmerman isn’t arrested.”
Instead of condemning Sharpton’s call for action, Barack’s Attorney General (and possible accomplice to murder in the Fast and Furious case) Eric Holder PRAISED Sharpton for his “work” on the Zimmerman case.
The only word I have for this is ‘disgust’.
Many celebrities and athletes including Jamie Foxx, Puff Daddy or Diddy (or whatever his name is today) and members of Miami Heat have all donned hoodies in support of Trayvon. Democrats in the California Assembly also did so. (They looked as ridiculous as you can imagine…)
All these celebrities and politicians have turned Trayvon into the new face of “everything wrong with racial problems”, conveniently ignoring the thousands and thousands of other unjust murders that have occurred before, during and after the Martin shooting. They are doing this in the same way they strangely tried to make the shooting of Arizona Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords a Tea Party thing—despite the fact that she and others were shot by a lone liberal whack-job.
It’s all a ruse to distract, confuse, incite and create dissention.
And if you have any doubts that this entire Trayvon story isn’t politically motivated, George Soros’s involvement should clear that up for you. His website Change.org created the online petition (allegedly started by the parents of Trayvon Martin) which has generated over 750,000 signatures. Some of the celebrities attached to this petition are Cher, Chad Ochocinco, Michael Moore (duh), Wyclef Jean, Clay Aiken, Mia Farrow and more.
Soon, the Trayvon story will disappear because as Saul Alinsky states in Radical Rule #7, “A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag. Man can sustain militant interest in any issue for only a limited time….”
But don’t worry, folks—there will be another Trayvon-type story just around the corner.
In my final Holding up the Mirror series, we’ll discuss the liberal attacks on Conservative women and children. Meanwhile, stay safe and keep the faith.
Martin Luther King said, “Justice denied anywhere diminishes justice everywhere.” King didn’t say this simply for the Trayvon Martin’s of the world—he also said it for people like Zimmerman, who is being hunted down like an animal without a trial.
In my next Holding up the Mirror series, I write about the “war on Conservative women.” Meanwhile, stay safe and keep the faith.
