Eric Kleefeld notices that FreedomWorks’ logofor the Sept. 12, 2009 anti-tax March on Washington appropriates the Communist/left-wing iconography of red fists punching the air. Adam Brandon of FreedomWorks explains:
When you start working here at FreedomWorks, the first book you read is Saul Alinsky’s “Rules For Radicals.” We’re avid students of the political left.
FreedomWorks isn’t exactly shy about this. Here’s what Brendan Steinhauser, another spokesman, saidto me two months ago:
We’re applying Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals” here. We’re using methods that the Left has used, and that other movements have used, all the way back to the Civil Rights movement. First of all there has to be a real grievance, and that’s what Rosa Parks and Martin Luther King had. That’s what we have.
You can’t overstate the degree to which conservatives read Alinksy to understand Obama and liberalism in power. Jim Geraghty has a primer.
