Alinsky playbook being used locally

Thank you, Lucas Pepperdine.

It's about time someone wrote about the Democratic strategy and referenced their playbook, "Rules for Radicals," authored by the Neo-Marxist Saul Alinsky.

Your analogy was spot on, but I'm not sure that we can force the Democrats to abandon the Alinsky neo-Marxist movement. Being in control at any cost is far more important to them.

Ridiculing and persecuting someone in public, threatening and attempting to destroy a person's honor and harm their family dynamics based on false allegations, targeted spreading of outright lies through print, social media and frenzied protests by ill informed/uninformed individuals –  just to stop someone from obtaining office – are actions that Christians, conservatives and most Republicans simply are not capable of doing. We follow a much older, kinder, loving playbook to live by. 

Locally we have witnessed the Alinsky movement in action during the past two county, district and state elections, and we are currently witnessing it at one of our county levels.

I applaud your efforts, and I sincerely hope that your letter to the editor has caused pause for our community to stop and think about what’s happening and how it's happening in our nation, our state, our county and our own community.
