On Sunday former presidential candidate Ben Carson told Fox News the disruption at Donald Trump’s Chicago rally last week is a tactic right out of Saul Alinsky’s playbook.
“If you read some of the left-leaning writings of people like Saul Alinsky, you understand exactly what they’re doing. This is part of the plan,” Carson said.
Alinsky’s infamous “Rules for Radicals” does not explicitly encourage violence. However, according Alinsky protégé Nicholas von Hoffman, in private “he would say that violence has its uses.”
Saul Alinsky and Hillary Clinton
Clinton was a follower of Saul Alinsky and met the Chicago community organizer several times in 1968 while writing a Wellesley college thesis (“An Analysis of the Alinsky Model”).
“Clinton’s relationship with Alinsky, and her support for his philosophy, continued for several years after she entered Yale law school in 1969,” writes Alana Goodman for The Washington Free Beacon.
Alinsky was fond of the young law student Clinton. “Since I know [Alinsky’s] feelings about you I took the liberty of opening your letter because I didn’t want something urgent to wait for two weeks,” replied Georgia Harper, Alinsky’s secretary, in response to a letter (see below) Clinton sent inquiring about his book, “Rules for Radicals.”
Shortly after Bill Clinton was elected the White House instructed Wellesley to bury Hillary’s thesis. “After the call from the White House, Wellesley’s president, Nannerl Overholser Keohane, consulted with lawyers and closed access to any thesis written by a U.S. president or first lady, a rule affecting only Hillary D. Rodham’s thesis,” writes Bill Dedman for NBC News.
On Saturday political insider Roger Stone told Alex Jones the disruption and violence at the Trump rally was a false flag staged by Hillary Clinton to discredit rival Bernie Sanders.
“The entire conflagration in Chicago is a Hillary Clinton operation,” Stone said during a phone interview. “Frankly, I can’t see Bernie Sanders having anything to with it… this is not his handiwork.”
In addition to Clinton, Stone implicated George Soros, MoveOn, David Brock and Media Matters for America and “the reclusive millionaire, Jonathan Lewis.”
