Just when Fox News has you thinking, "Okay Palintards, you can't POSSIBLY get worse"...

They come up with this shit.

The basic gist of the article is that Obama, as a community organizer is Chicago, was a "disciple" of Saul Alinsky, who was one of the chief architects of the modern community organizing movement in Chicago.

Obama is an on-the-record fan too: Fund quotes The Washington Post’s Peter Slevin, writing in 2007, “Obama embraced many of Alinsky’s tactics and recently said his years as an organizer gave him the best education of his life.” Slevin further noted that Obama’s and Hillary Rodham Clinton’s “common connection to Alinsky is one of the striking aspects of their biographies.”

Yea, not tenuous at all.

Getting past that, though, is the least of our concerns. Pinkerton then goes on to assert that Alinsky's epigraph to his seminal book "Rules For Radicals" means that he's a "Lucifer admirer." The epigraph goes:

Lest we forget at least an over the shoulder acknowledgement of the very first radical, from all our legends, mythology, and history … 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.

If any of these mouth breathers bothered to read further than the title page of the book, though, they'd find out that Alinsky was clearly being glib. One of his central tenets of being a successful organizer is HAVING A SENSE OF HUMOR. But of course, liberal = godless sodomite = SATANIST. And so, Alinsky, and by tenuous association Obama, LOVES LUCIFER.

Tragically, as Pinkerton points out, "the Obama-Alinsky-Lucifer connection is left to float around in the vast soup of the Internet—plenty of mentions, here and there, but no real impact." Until now, libtards!!! Eat it up and watch That One lose!!!

My favorite part, though, is always when Fox, inevitably, plays victim to the dirty mainstream liberal gun-stealing media:

OK, so the Alinsky-Obama connection is real. But the full truth about Alinsky, and whom he admired, is so wacky, or so horrible, that even the media have been reluctant to get into the story. And so it has received relatively little play. Oh sure, if John McCain had expressed admiration for a Lucifer admirer, that would have been news, but as we all know, there’s a media double standard on such things. That media bias is lamentable, of course, but for a Republican, it’s part of the strategic landscape—one more roadblock to factor into any GOP victory strategy.


Oh also, this video from Kos made my day so hard.

"And, for that matter, let’s talk about the great state of Illinois, where three governors in the last 40 years—Otto Kerner, Dan Walker, and George Ryan—ended up not only convicted, but imprisoned. And a fourth, incumbent Rod Blagojevich, may also end up in the clink. That’s quite a streak of corruption. And what does Obama have to say about any of that? And what did he know, and when did he know it?"

Wow. Wow!
