American Thinker: Obama, Alinsky, and Scapegoats: "Pick the Target, Freeze It, Personalize It and Polarize It."
- Saul Alinsky, Rules for Radicals.
That's what Barack Obama taught his ACORN followers in all his Community Agitator classes in Chicago. That slogan defines mob scapegoating, of course. It is an exact prescription for whipping up mobs -- by race, by gender, by ethnicity, by religion. If you want to know how to whip a mob of Pakistani Taliban fascisti to whip a young girl for flirting with a young man in public, this is exactly what you do: Pick the Target, Freeze It, Personality It, and Polarize It.
And notice that 'the target' is no longer a human being. It's an 'It.' Try substituting the word 'victim' for 'target,' and you see how it works."
