A great piece from today's American Thinker. Barack Obama's career as a "community organizer" definitely followed the path of the Grand Pooba of socialist activists, Saul Alinsky and his "Rules for Radicals.". Alinsky learned well from the propaganda movements in that built fascist regimes in Europe. Mastering the language and controlling the debate are far more important than truth. The name "Bush", to frothing Leftists, creates the same reaction as "Hitler" does to most sane people. Trust me, in my line of work I deal with a lot of highly-educated, but empty-headed Leftists. The word "Bush" turns them red in the face and causes them to just rant. The man was responsible for every evil that has ever befallen mankind. Jonah Goldberg's "Liberal Fascism" is a great expose of the rhetorical tactics of the American Left. Required reading!
