One of the most quoted “rules” in Saul Alinsky’s Rules For Radicals book is Rule 13. This rule is under the tactics section of the book and that is a better way to think of this. In this tactic, you are taught to select a specific target, a person. Government bodies (i.e. Congress, etc.) or buildings (i.e. Washington, city hall, etc.) allow blame to be shifted too easily.
“Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.”
Hardly a day goes by without some pundit describing the lefts’ playbook written by Saul Alinsky. Based on the descriptions, I half expected to be treated to a barrage of 1960’s “kill the establishment” claptrap. Being born in the early part of that decade, I was more worried about tomorrow’s pick up baseball game than world politics, but I was aware of the strife. Much of my perceptions of the period was formed in front of the television.
