Haven’t put up a rant for awhile. That changes now. You have been warned!
The 1960’s, and the decades before, were tough times for many people living in Chicago. The Daily machine ran the city, less the organized crime fiefdoms (like, who could tell the difference?), and the people on the bottom rebelled.
Along came Saul Alinsky, a champion of and for the “downtrodden”. In 1971 he wrote, “Rules for Radicals”. He didn’t write it for the “elites”.
Today his rules have been co-opted, IMO, by the very people he fought against. “Resistance” fighters who grew up suburban, attended private schools, attended the most prestigious universities, and enjoy a lifestyle unobtainable by the people they allegedly champion. They use his “rules” to justify their lack of a moral center and their thirst for power and dominion over we “deplorables”.
My linage doesn’t have any elitism of any sort. Irish immigrants, railroad workers, cowboys, soldiers, sailors, miners, and homesteaders were my forbearers. With that, I can understand a Saul Alinsky and sense a moral foundation to his tactics, tools for the powerless.
At their core, these (P)regressives are bitterly unhappy and want to drag everyone else into their personal hell so as to somehow validate their own miserable selves. So says WSF, who “identifies” as a psychologist.
“WSF, you are not qualified”, says the mob!!!!!
“When did that ever matter”, says WSF?
“Furthermore, go fuck yourselves”.
What grinds my gears is there is seemingly no ill consequences for the (P)regressives and their despicable tactics. Of course, there is the whole President Trump thing. Not enough, IMO.
We need to vote these (P)regressive assholes out of office.
I will get involved, and not as a keyboard commando.
