In Hot Air.com's comment section this morning I came across this comment. I am going to reproduce it here because in an uncomplicated and clear way it explains how the vicious attacks on Miss California are Alinsky's rules put into practice. It is amazing how the self styled advocates of tolerance and peace have no difficulty with the total destruction of one of their fellow humans.
Why does everyone act so surprised that this attack:
1.) occurred in the first place? It was a given if not a complete setup from the word go.
2.) kept going in the face of hypocrisy on the part of the left? Also a given
3.) turned so vicious and hateful for so long? Once again, it was a given.
The attack on Carrie Prejean bears all the hallmarks of a by the book set of plays. It followed the Left’s bible on targeting: Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals. Specifically rules 4, 5, 6, 8, and their perennial favorite; 12. Go read the list and tell me if this wasn’t a textbook radical lefty approach. Sure seems that way to me. None of what they have done was a surprise.
On a side note: I love how the rest of the rules basically tell them that even if they lose they are winners and even if their opponents win, they really didn’t… I am lousy at things like this but SA’s Rules for Radicals basically seem to sum up as follows:
Find a target for your temper tantrum; make petulant demands that said target change its own values to match your own; scream loudly when target refuses; make dark and dire threats over things which you have no control; repeat demands; scream more loudly still, attack any aspect of target’s life no matter how ridiculous it makes you seem; scream until your eyes bug, spittle flies, and your face turns vermilion; demand that target’s supporters “be more moderate” (read: capitulate) about their beliefs because you don’t agree; blather, wince, repeat from step one ad endless nauseum until no one is listening to you any more; declare victory regardless of reality; find new target; start all over again…
Is that about right?
Sounds like my kids when they were between 2 and 4 years old… IIRC this attitude became undesirable when I turned their backside the same color as their face mid-tantrum. Viola. Two great kids with a future as successful human beings.
OK, sorry for the long-winded post, we now return you to your regularly scheduled 10 second sound bites…

I will concede that she had the audacity and bald faced nerve to model lingerie, the complete naughtiness of which lefties have always stood four square and consistently against.
