Left us­ing ‘Rules’ against Trump

The Washington Times Weekly - - Letters To The Editor - MARVIN D. PIPHER Hous­ton

Has it oc­curred to any­one but me that for the past two years Amer­ica’s en­trenched es­tab­lish­ment has been us­ing Saul Alin­sky’s tac­tics of rad­i­cal­ism to de­stroy Amer­ica’s duly elected pres­i­dent? Alin­sky was the self-styled Chicago com­mu­nist, ac­tivist and com­mu­nity or­ga­nizer whose acolytes brought a young Barack Obama into the fold. He is the man who wrote the book “Rules for Rad­i­cals,” which he ded­i­cated to Lu­cifer, the devil, for be­ing the first ‘rad­i­cal’ by op­pos­ing God.

Four of Alin­sky’s most im­por­tant rules were these: 1) Ac­cuse your en­emy of what you your­self are do­ing; 2) Iso­late your en­emy; 3) At­tack, at­tack, at­tack; and 4) The truth doesn’t mat­ter; what’s im­por­tant is what peo­ple be­lieve.

There is abun­dant ev­i­dence that the Clin­ton cam­paign “col­luded” with the Rus­sians to pre­vent Don­ald Trump from be­com­ing pres­i­dent and that higher-ups in the FBI and CIA helped them and later ex­on­er­ated them. But through their ne­far­i­ous ef­forts we have spent the past two years striv­ing to bring down our freely elected pres­i­dent with no ev­i­dence to sup­port their al­le­ga­tions.

It must be ob­vi­ous by now to any­one with half a brain that there is and has been an on­go­ing ef­fort to strip Mr. Trump of any al­lies (i.e., to “iso­late” him). It must also be ad­mit­ted that Mr. Trump is un­der con­stant at­tack in the main­stream me­dia as well as by those in the en­trenched Wash­ing­ton “swamp” (and was even be­fore he was sworn in as pres­i­dent). There is a con­stant drum beat of pro­pa­ganda drilling in the mes­sage that ev­ery­thing Mr. Trump does is wrong, evil or bad for the coun­try.

I’m 86 years old now, but can still re­mem­ber when the United States of Amer­ica was ac­claimed world­wide as the great­est na­tion in the world. And, I can still re­mem­ber when, as a child, I of­ten thanked God that I had been born at just the right time and in just the right place to be born in the great­est coun­try in the his­tory of the world. Sadly, though, I’ve watched my beloved coun­try be­ing led deeper and deeper into the swamp by one glob­al­ist/so­cial­ist regime after an­other. Thank­fully, the Amer­i­can peo­ple woke up on elec­tion night in 2016. Let’s hope they don’t go back to sleep again. Maybe — God will­ing — it isn’t too late.
