Recent race riots in America focused attention on poor black communities and the meme that US police departments are racist and doing everything they can to single out innocent black men for arrest, incarceration, or frequently to murder them. What this event, or series of events, has also done is expose another Alinsky tactic being employed by Democrats and their progressive supporters.
What Americans hear from the left and from race baiters like Al Sharpton is how terrible and racist the police are. We see only one depiction of the police from “Minion Media” descriptions and its one that most Americans don’t agree with or recognize. Most of us understand the vast majority of law enforcement officers are brave, honorable men and women who dedicate their lives in protection of the communities they serve. It’s a dangerous line of work, often thankless, but they do it because they love this country and they feel a calling to serve much like those in the United States military. So why is it, that in discussions about the police, the Democrat party can only attack, denigrate, and destroy our Police? The result of this relentless denigration, officers are under attack, singled out and executed in growing numbers. The radical leftists in this country are so anti-police that in Ferguson Missouri, and most recently in Baltimore the US Attorney General’s officewas sent in with the goal of federalizing those departments in the name of social justice. So far, more than 20police departments have met the same federal control.
When so much that the left in America does draws its inspiration from notorious America-hater Saul Alinsky, it’s no wonder that this relentless attack upon police is a tactic straight out of the his Rules for Radicals. Alinsky teaches that once you pick a target you must demonize it, never admitting to, or allowing, any positive qualities of that target to get discussed.
“Men will act when they are convinced that their cause is 100 per cent on the side of the angels and that the opposition are 100 per cent on the side of the devil. He knows that there can be no action until issues are polarized to this degree.”
It doesn’t matter how much they must exaggerate, lie, or outright fabricate events in order to create that devil, their radical ends justifies the means.
