The Democrats are all in a tizzy because Barak (The Nazarine) Obama’s position of “community organizer” is under attack. Of course, they were the FIRST to point out that Sarah Palin’s political career started out in a small city. This, of course, doesn’t erase the fact that even if she were still the mayor of Wasilla, Alaska she’d STILL have more executive experience than The Nazarine.
Details, details. Pffth!
Much is being touted about Barak Obama’s “community organizer” experience, and what a “good thing” that is. Ok. Cool. Let’s contrast that with other (in)famous, well-known community organizers that you may know.
By the way, as most people with a functioning brain may have figured out by now, Jesus Christ was not a “community organizer”. He was a rabbi with a far grander function than the unproductive dregs that pride themselves in such a position.
Anyways…here’s the list:
Jesse Jackson. Yes, we remember the venerable Mr. Jackson, don’t we? The same Reverend Jesse Jackson who shakes-down companies, knocked up his mistress, and paid her to keep quiet? Remember how he paid the mistress? With money from his tax-deductible Rainbow-PUSH charity, that’s how. Yes, Jesse “Hymietown” Jackson is a prime example of a “community organizer”
Al Sharpton. All I’ll say is: Tawana Brawley.
I won’t even go into the quote about the “white interlopers”.
Malcom X. While he is an inspiring figure to some, Malcom X was also quite incendiary when he was the main spokesman for the Nation of Islam. He was also stung to death by the same nest of hornets he helped grow.
Saul Alinsky. Quite a popular figure nowadays, he too was a community organizer in the 1930s. He wrote what is the textbook for “community organizers” and far-left radicals called, Rules for Radicals. It’s a book that has the following dedication:
Lest we forget at least an over-the-shoulder acknowledgment to the very first radical: from all our legends, mythology, and history (and who is to know where mythology leaves off and history begins — or which is which), the first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom — Lucifer.
Some claim this is Saul’s “mischievous” humor bleeding through. Apparently, Saul was too involved being “mischievous” to realize that the “first radical” he praises as winning his own kingdom, eventually ruled over Hell – a paragon of misery and suffering. Yeah. That’s something to aspire to.
Cesar Chavez. This is the guy who unionized migrant farm workers. In fact, his organization of the farm workers not only stagnated their wages in the early 1980s, but also led to the decline of the UFW in the late 1980s through the 1990s. His unionization of the migrant workers also led to a massive illegal immigration campaign by farmers who didn’t want to pay the inflated wages the union demanded.
Sara Jane Olson. A former member of the Simbionese Liberation Army (that’s the group that kidnapped Patty Hearst), she changed her name from Kathleen Soliah and went underground. The SLA was renown for kidnappings, bank robbings, and was accused of several murders.
But, of course, she did none of these things. Pure as the wind-driven snow.
James Ujaama. Also known by the name James Earnest Thompson, he was at one time a shining light amongst the community organizer crowd. Washington State Representative Jesse Wineberry even issued a certificate declaring June 10th to be James Ujaama Day in Washington. This all changed when James Ujaama was indicted for conspiring to aid Osama bin Laden. Apparently, he was caught with some documents that detailed how you could poison the nation’s water supply. He took a plea deal, then fled the country. In 2006 was picked-up again in Belize.
Yes. Community organizers and activists are a lovely group.
Somehow, I think trying to make something out of Barack’s “community activist” experience is prone to backfire, just like the comparisons being actively drawn to compare Obama to one Jesus Christ. But I hope they keep doing it. If there is one way to light your own campaign on fire in a spectacular fashion, it is to denigrate religious and historical figures (in this case, no less than the Christian savior) by comparing them to self-serving political figures.
Yep. That’ll get the Evangelicals out voting for you (or more like, voting against you). Religious discourse can be caustic enough. Comparing someone to Jesus Christ because they can read a teleprompter, is more apt to push away those who are sitting on the fence, and insult those people who – despite their ideological concordance with Obama – cherish a stricter version of religious teachings than the Democrat party would like.
As for the term “community organizer”, that screams “LIBERAL” to most people in a very high, harsh, and annoying tone. It also doesn’t help that a lot of scumbags become community organizers and activists. And I don’t think it’s all that smart putting those people on par with someone like Jesus Christ.
Then again, I’m not a Democrat wanting to relive the age of John Kennedy and Camelot in black-face either.
