Stealth is Not a Good Idea

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania – September 25 –

I’m on a stealth kick. Various community organizers have advocated stealth. One prominent example is Saul Alinsky. He practiced avoiding words like overthrow governments with “attaining power”. He wanted to be sneaky. He didn’t want to talk about armed revolution, because he thought that people would be turned off by the idea. According to Stanley Kurtz, “socialist successes in the 20th century were the products of stealth”.

More from Radical in Chief by Stanley Kurtz: [1]

Hidden socialist maneuvering stand behind a good deal of modern American community organizing. Socialism would take over the government and establish a new society; a prelude to a broader socialist revolution and probable armed struggle. A female socialist put forth this idea; truly reaching socialism or feminism will likely take a revolution that is in fact violent, a rupture with the old ways, in which the current ruling class and elites are wiped out.

Obamacare is not about health care; it is about the stealth destruction of capitalism.

Modern community organizations themselves can best be understood as miniature front groups, little coalitions crossing ideological lines, best maneuvered from behind by socialist organizers. A popular front strategy means stealth. Don’t use socialist language. Drop socialist from your name.

So, if stealth is exposed, socialism will be harmed.

How many times have you heard President Obama repeat his “spread the wealth around” words to Joe the plumber? None that I know of. I get the impression that his words were unintended. President also said some significant words in a speech in Colorado:

Senator Obama was nearly 17 minutes into his July 2 speech  in Colorado Springs, Colorado when he deviated from his pre-released script and performed without the teleprompter net saying,

"We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we've set. We've got to have a civilian national security force [2] that's just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded." (emphasis added)

The immediate context for that amazing statement was a preview of parts of his plan to vastly expand community service opportunities for Americans of nearly all ages. He said,

"People of all ages, stations, and skills will be asked to serve."
