In response to Do not doubt the power of the Cloward-Piven strategy:
I’m surprised that a pundit as intelligent and insightful as Jonah Goldberg doesn’t see the humanitarian disaster on the border as an obviously manufactured crisis.
Not only simple common sense but empirical evidence tells us Obama knew this was coming.
Obama is, after all, the Community Organizer in Chief, who went from being a student to being a teacher of the philosophy and methods of the original community organizer – Saul Alinsky.
The strategy of forcing political change through orchestrated crisis, or “Cloward-Piven Strategy” was inspired by Saul Alinsky.
The idea is to create political, financial, and social chaos in order to bring about “change” – or “fundamental transformation” if you will.
Obama is the Cloward-Piven president.
Think back to Fast and Furious, the Regime’s odious gun-running operation that resulted in the deaths of hundreds of Mexicans, one Border Patrol agent and possibly one ICE agent.
Why were U.S. Border Patrol agents and ATF agents told by their superiors to look the other way when thousands of guns, including 50 caliber and AK-47 type assault rifles, were sold to illegal arms traffickers and smugglers who then sold them to Mexican criminal organizations and drug cartels?
There was never a law enforcement purpose to the scheme that made sense, and the operation was causing violence on the border and in Mexico to escalate. When senior agents confronted their supervisors about the harm they were doing, the answer they got was, “If you’re going to make an omelette, you’ve got to break some eggs.”
What was the omelette they were trying to cook up through this manufactured crisis? The administration was hoping to use the fact that the U.S. guns were showing up at crime scenes as a means of building support for new gun-control laws.
Conservative journalist James Simpson had Obama’s number back in 2008. At the time, he called Obama the Cloward-Piven candidate:
Barack Obama, the Cloward-Piven candidate, no matter how he describes himself, has been a radical activist for most of his political career. That activism has been in support of organizations and initiatives that at their heart seek to tear the pillars of this nation asunder in order to replace them with their demented socialist vision.
Even Peggy Noonan, who is about the last person you would expect to embrace a “conspiracy theory,” like this, said in her latest WSJ piece:
There is every sign he let the crisis on the border build to put heat on Republicans and make them pass his idea of good immigration reform. It would be “comprehensive,” meaning huge, impenetrable and probably full of mischief. His base wants it. It would no doubt benefit the Democratic Party in the long term.
The little children in great danger, holding hands, staring blankly ahead, are pawns in a larger game. That game is run by adults. How cold do you have to be to use children in this way?
Many of the pawns died before they made it to the border. Just like a few years ago, hundreds of other pawns died during another one of the Regime’s games.
