Dare I Speak The Obvious?

Time and time again people within the Obama administration they quote Saul Alinsky, say that they look to him for guidance and that they turn to him (his writings) for advice.

Who is this Saul Alinksy?

From his book "Rules for Radicals" he writes...

“Lest we forget at least an over-the-shoulder acknowledgment to the very first radical: from all our legends, mythology, and history (and who is to know where mythology leaves off and history begins — or which is which), the first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom — Lucifer

He then goes on to dedicate his book to Lucifer.

Why would we elect a president that surrounds himself with people that say they turn to a follower of Lucifer for guidance?  But surely Obama himself wouldn't have such beliefs.. right?

Saul Alinsky quotes:

33“laugh at the enemy”
“Ridicule, is man’s most potent weapon. It is almost impossible to counterattack ridicule. Also it infuriates the opposition, who then react to your advantage.”
“Rub raw the resentments of the people; search out controversy and issues.”
“Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.”

Obama quotes:

“I want you argue with them and get in their face,”
“like a spy behind enemy lines,”
“organize black folks”

I think I am just confused why it's become so forbidden to just repeat what someone says and does.  Somehow it's hateful to exactly show or repeat what someone says.  I'm just not picking up on the nuances I guess.

Taking a few steps back from the politics it becomes more clear the further back you get. When you pull way back and look down at it all from the heavens it clearly becomes visible that this is a spiritual battle. The forces of good and evil battle all around us.

Which side are you on?
