Eternal war, by definition, must never end. – Alinsky “Rules for Radicals”

In a previous post, my friend L shared the following comment:

We are repeating history right now. As it says in the Bible there is nothing new under the sun.

Both sides need to be denounced for the violence, evil, and ugliness that they are showing. We cannot excuse the Alt Right, Nazis, and as Conservatives we need to make it very clear that we in no way agree with them. In the same way Liberals, and those on the left need to denounce ANTIFA, and BLM. If you are an average American none of these groups should be at all representing you.

We cannot wipe out history, and make ourselves clean. We are destined to forget, and become that which we were if we try to do that. Should we put some things in a museum instead of the public square, absolutely?

The media on both sides is telling us to believe the worst about both Liberals, and Conservatives. The reality is that most of us are not in any way connected with any of the fringe elements in America, or if we are seeing clearly are rising up all over the world.

I would ask everyone to stand firm in the middle against all the divisive groups. Not with any, “Yeah, but what about….?” Just firmly against the Alt Right, Nazis, and likewise firmly against ANTIFA communists, and BLM.

We should not be silent, and we should not feed into any division. We need to show love, and peace to each other. Love is the antidote to this poison that is among us. The German people before WWII allowed the poison to fester, and never did find the antidote.

The Communists, and Nazis were clashing daily in Germany, but little to nothing was done. Most just thought it didn’t affect them, and eventually things would get back to normal. Let’s not end up like the German people who tried to ignore what was happening or chose sides. We need to be strong now, and not waver. We must be firmly against any hate, and division, and not cling to politics or a group mentality.

We are all God’s children. There is no difference. I will stand for Love not hate. What about you?

This was very well written by L!  Of course I (and, I’m sure, most readers here) WANT to stand for love and not hate!

What is the cure for hate?  I believe that there is only one cure- Jesus Christ!

However, Jesus did warn us in Matthew 10 that we would be sent out as sheep in the midst of wolves.

Mat 10:16

“Behold, I send you out as sheep in the midst of wolves. Therefore be wise as serpents and harmless as doves.

Read all of Matthew 10!  The Bible is an honest book and forewarns us about what we will face as Christians in “the midst of wolves.”  Scripture tells us how to handles situations as they come up.  Sometimes, we must “depart from that house or city, shake off the dust from your feet” because not everyone will receive our Gospel message with joy.  In fact, many will hate us for it!

Mat 10:22

“And you will be hated by all for My name’s sake. But he who endures to the end will be saved.

These days, in order to be “wise as serpents” we must also be aware of what is REALLY going on in society today.  In this case, it is manufactured battle of the “white supremacist/neo-Nazi vs. Antifa” protests and riots!

In that previous post comment thread, I shared with L many links to blog posts that describe more of the truth behind the protests and riots; and just who is at fault for them. They were pre-planned! (see links within those previous comments.)

What is this REALLY ALL ABOUT?

I think that we are witnessing classic Cloward/Piven and Alinsky tactics at work with the absolute goal of dividing us and conquering We The People.

Please read this excerpt and then tell me what YOU think is the goal of these evil instigators!

Please continue to pray to God for our nation and people!

Jesus Christ is the answer! 

What is the question?

He is the answer to them all!

Excerpt from Alinsky Rules for Radicals:

The organizer, he said, “must first rub raw the resentments of the people; fan the latent hostilities to the point of overt expression. He must search out controversy and issues, rather than avoid them, for unless there is controversy people are not concerned enough to act.”[40] The organizer’s function, he added, was “to agitate to the point of conflict”[41] and “to maneuver and bait the establishment so that it will publicly attack him as a ‘dangerous enemy.’”[42] “The word ‘enemy,’” said Alinsky, “is sufficient to put the organizer on the side of the people”;[43] i.e., to convince members of the community that he is so eager to advocate on their behalf, that he has willingly opened himself up to condemnation and derision. But it is not enough for the organizer to be in solidarity with the people. He must also, said Alinsky, cultivate unity against a clearly identifiable enemy; he must specifically name this foe, and “singl[e] out”[44] precisely who is to blame for the “particular evil” that is the source of the people’s angst.[45] In other words, there must be a face associated with the people’s discontent. That face, Alinsky taught, “must be a personification, not something general and abstract like a corporation or City Hall.”[46] Rather, it should be an individual such as a CEO, a mayor, or a president.

Alinsky summarized it this way: “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it…. [T]here is no point to tactics unless one has a target upon which to center the attacks.”[47]He held that the organizer’s task was to cultivate in people’s hearts a negative, visceral emotional response to the face of the enemy. “The organizer who forgets the significance of personal identification,” said Alinsky, “will attempt to answer all objections on the basis of logic and merit. With few exceptions this is a futile procedure.”[48]

Alinsky also advised organizers to focus their attention on a small number of selected, strategic targets. Spreading an organization’s passions too thinly was a recipe for certain failure, he warned.[49]

Alinsky advised the radical activist to avoid the temptation to concede that his opponent was not “100 per cent devil,” or that he possessed certain admirable qualities such as being “a good churchgoing man, generous to charity, and a good husband.” Such qualifying remarks, Alinsky said, “dilut[e] the impact of the attack” and amount to sheer “political idiocy.”[50]

Alinsky stressed the need for organizers to convince their followers that the chasm between the enemy and the members of the People’s Organization was vast and unbridgeable. “Before men can act,” he said, “an issue must be polarized. Men will act when they are convinced their cause is 100 percent on the side of the angels, and that the opposition are 100 percent on the side of the devil.”[51] Alinsky advised this course of action even though he well understood that the organizer “knows that when the time comes for negotiations it is really only a 10 percent difference.”[52] But in Alinsky’s brand of social warfare, the ends (in this case, the transfer of power) justify virtually whatever means are required (in this case, lying).[53]

Winning was all that mattered in Alinsky’s strategic calculus: “The morality of a means depends on whether the means is being employed at a time of imminent defeat or imminent victory.”[54] “The man of action … thinks only of his actual resources and the possibilities of various choices of action,” Alinsky added. “He asks only whether they are achievable and worth the cost; of means, only whether they will work.”[55] For Alinsky, all morality was relative: “The judgment of the ethics of means is dependent on the political position of those sitting in judgment.”[56]

Given that the enemy was to be portrayed as the very personification of evil, against whom any and all methods were fair game, Alinsky taught that an effective organizer should never give the appearance of being fully satisfied as a result of having resolved any particular conflict via compromise. Any compromise with the “devil” is, after all, by definition morally tainted and thus inadequate. Consequently, while the organizer may acknowledge that he is pleased by the compromise as a small step in the right direction, he must make it absolutely clear that there is still a long way to go, and that many grievances still remain unaddressed. The ultimate goal, said Alinsky, is not to arrive at compromise or peaceful coexistence, but rather to “crush the opposition,” bit by bit.[57] “A People’s Organization is dedicated to eternal war,” said Alinsky. “… A war is not an intellectual debate, and in the war against social evils there are no rules of fair play.… When you have war, it means that neither side can agree on anything…. In our war against the social menaces of mankind there can be no compromise. It is life or death.”[58]

Alinsky warned the organizer to be ever on guard against the possibility that the enemy might unexpectedly offer him “a constructive alternative” aimed at resolving the conflict. Said Alinsky, “You cannot risk being trapped by the enemy in his sudden agreement with your demand and saying, ‘You’re right — we don’t know what to do about this issue. Now you tell us.’”[59] Such capitulation by the enemy would have the effect of diffusing the righteous indignation of the People’s Organization, whose very identity is inextricably woven into the fight for long-denied justice; i.e., whose struggle and identity are synonymous. If the perceived oppressor surrenders or extends a hand of friendship in an effort to end the conflict, the crusade of the People’s Organization is jeopardized. This cannot be permitted. Eternal war, by definition, must never end.

Did you read that? “Eternal war, by definition, must never end.”

This is what we are up against! No wonder Alinsky’s book is dedicated to Lucifer…

    Amen! As I often try to say, you are being played, you are being gamed. Don’t fall for teh stoopid. Hatred can be very seductive.

    Jesus Christ really is the answer. He not only brings clarity and truth, He creates unity, not divisions and strife.

      Thanks, IB for taking the time to comment.

      We know who the author of hatred is, and why many can be seduced into that evil lair.

      Lucifer’s original fall from grace continues to get the unsaved to also fall into division and strife. Their minds have been blinded, and as you so graciously pointed out – only Christ brings clarity and truth!

      Jesus is the answer; and those interested in the unity He has created and provided for us will come to the cross of Christ to confess, accept the forgiveness for their sins and ultimately embrace His grace. Jesus is the Way to escape the seduction of hatred, evil, and eternal death.

    That’s not the way I heard it:

    “Do not think that I came to bring peace on earth. I did not come to bring peace but a sword.
    “For I have come to ‘set a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law’;
    “and ‘a man’s enemies will be those of his own household.’
    “He who loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me. And he who loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me.
    “And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me.”
    Matt 10:34~38, NKJV

    Maybe I read only the first draft…

    I know you think I’m not being serious, but you can’t deny that those words are attributed to Jesus in that book you so adore. I just want to know how insanitybytes22 reconciles those words with her own–the ones I quoted (and not out of context).

    “We have always been at war with Oceania.”
