Katrina vanden Heuvel Cites “The Great” Saul Alinsky

November 18, 2009

Barack Obama is not the only one giving a shout out. On Monday’s edition of MSNBC’s The Ed Show Nation magazine editor Katrina vanden Heuvel hailed the godfather of community organizers:

The great community organizer Saul Alinsky talked about organized people vs. organized money. We are seeing the mugging of the common good everyday.

How can the Left continue to claim anyone- seeking to understand its motives or modus by reading Alinsky’s writings is paranoid?

The show also represented the continuation of Katrina’s self-contradiction tour on the issue of the filibuster. Now that Republicans are filibustering socialism, she is in favor of its abolition — but that was not the case lo, many, many (well, four) years ago. She said Monday:

We can talk about the need for deep reform of the Senate, abolishing the filibuster.

As I noted earlier this month, when the Democrats were the Congressional minority using the filibuster in an unprecedented manner against Bush judicial nominees, Katrina posted a “warning to the Republic” written by Sen. Robert Byrd, and Nation ran numerous articles on such topics as “Checks, Balances, and the Duty to Filibuster.”

The Nation: still following the party line after all these years.

    I’d rather be dead than red.

    Amazing how these modern Democrat (aka leftist, aka marxist, aka maoist, etc.) commentators can slide so effortlessly from one Party line viewpoint to the next, without consequence. No one in the establishment media bothers to question or investigate them.

      “Without consequence”.
      No, Chris, it is perfectly understandable when considering that they are without conscience or moral values that remain constant. Nothing said by Progressives even surprises me any more. When you live in their land of pathological lies and delusions, you go with the ebb and flow of the party line. Mindless, everfaithful useful tools, they march lock step to their eventual demise. But, let not your heart be troubled, they will blame all the failure on the evil, patriotic Americans, especially Conservatives and their zealotry to maintain the status of the US constitution and Bill Of Rights as the foundation of the country. Remember, we are the enemy and the source of all of the world’s problems. Their solution is to destroy the American society and re-build a world based on economic and social equity/justice that the elite Progressives will administer will a fickle and iron hand. They point a finger of scorn and derision at conservatives while not recognizing the four that point back at them.

    It is amazing that a woman of obvious intelligence is such a LEFT wing-nut. It is difficult to watch her, on the rare occasion I come upon her cable appearances, as she spews her nonsense. I can see the way she twists her mouth/lips as I type.
