Monday, Nov. 11, 2013 – Allen West: Out of the Foxhole

by Allen B. West

Palm Beach Gardens, FL, November 11, 2013 — After last week’s elections in New York, New Jersey, and Virginia, the political pundit class had very unsurprising conclusions for the GOP. First, Governor Chris Christie will get the GOP presidential nomination in 2016. Second, the GOP needs to follow Christie’s model and become more moderate.

Therein lies the fundamental difference between Republicans and Democrats. Republicans play checkers, an impulsive, reactionary game while Democrats play chess. They develop a long strategic plan to be implemented incrementally, eventually attaining their objectives by any means necessary.

Saul Alinsky, the Chicago native, admitted Marxist and author of the book, Rules for Radicals is a legendary figure in the playbook of leftist, progressive tactics. Alinsky identified a set of very specific rules that ordinary citizens could follow as a means of gaining public power through revolution.

However, Alinsky’s brand of revolution was not characterized by dramatic, sweeping, or overnight transformations of social institutions. Instead Alinsky advocated a gradual infiltration of existing institutions such as churches, unions and political parties. Alinsky advised organizers and their disciples to quietly, subtly gain influence within the decision-making ranks of these institutions, and to slowly introduce changes from those platforms.

To use a southern metaphor, this is just like boiling a frog. You don’t throw the frog into a pot of hot water. You have to put the frog into a pot of cold water and slowly turn up the temperature. It’s a long term strategy.

But the GOP defines strategy as telling everyone to be more like Governor Christie. (Click below to continue)

  1. Forget the abortion exceptions but for the medical danger to the mother. Anything less is playing God with the life of the unborn child. How do we know that a child of rape or incest couldn’t grow up to be a world-changer? God can take ANY bad situation (including medical danger – but I would be willing to give mothers choice in that one instance) and use it for good.

  2. The Men of the Enlightenment, including Thomas Paine and Patrick Henry, had an audience of independent souls eager to listen and understand … their words formed the basis for our unique nation but are now lost on its present citizens … we failed to teach two generations of our countrymen… sad …

  3. Allan, everyone in the new media is speaking about issues that seem to be diversions from the key problems Obama is creating. It is becoming very clear you and no one else on this site will talk about Obama and how he usurped the office of the president by committing ID fraud. Will you report of the well-known media sources in Egypt reporting that Egyptian lawyers have filed criminal terrorism charges in the International Criminal Court against President Obama. Plus, there are criminal terrorism charges previously filed in Egyptian courts against the president’s half-brother Malik Obama. These conversations are common on the streets of Amman, Jordan and Israel but not in America.
    Obama’s half-brother is being reported on as a person of interest in Egypt for his alleged management of funds for a terrorist organization based in Sudan. Egyptian lawyers, currently have charged President Obama with crimes against humanity for his support of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt. The US contractors working in the ME hear more than we do stateside about Obama and his true interest.
    Please report on Obama, his half-brother and the Egyptian Courts. Let your readers know that our news media is truly performing as Sharia compliant by protecting Obama..
