President Obama Does Stand-Up At The Alinsky Comedy Club

Posted on April 19th, 2010 by Fingers Malloy

Duane Lester at AllAmericanBlogger.com recently wrote an article over at Pajamas Media analyzing President Obama’s speech that mocked opponents of ObamaCare. The Obama Administration’s mockery of concerned Americans is all part of the Alinsky playbook. The following is part of Duane’s post, plus his video response to President Obama’s stand-up comedy act.

From Pajamas Media.

Those are the words of the granddaddy of community organizers, Saul Alinsky. In his book Rules for Radicals, Alinsky wrote: “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon. It is almost impossible to counteract ridicule. Also it infuriates the opposition, which then reacts to your advantage.”

On this, he’s right. Ridicule is a very potent weapon. In his book Fighting the War of Ideas like Real War: Messages to Defeat the Terrorists, J. Michael Waller explains why ridicule is such an effective weapon against one’s enemies:

  • It sticks;
  • The target can’t refute it;
  • It is almost impossible to repress;
  • It spreads on its own and multiplies with each re-telling;
  • It boosts morale at home;
  • Our enemy shows far greater intolerance to ridicule than we;
  • Ridicule divides the enemy, damages its morale, and makes it less attractive to supporters and prospective recruits; and
  • The ridicule-armed warrior need not fix a physical sight on the target. Ridicule will find its own way to the targeted individual. To the enemy, being ridiculed means losing respect. It means losing influence. It means losing followers and repelling potential new backers.

Perfect Strangers 2010, Balki And The New America

Posted on April 16th, 2010 by Fingers Malloy

Imagine if Balki arrived in America today, instead of 1986. As you may recall, Balki was an immigrant from a fictional Mediterranean island named Mypos. After finding out that it takes years to get into this country legally, Balki decides to sneak over the border from Mexico.

Balki wants to meet up with his cousin Larry in Chicago. Inspired by Speaker Pelosi’s ObamaCare statement that people could quit their jobs that provide them health insurance to become a painter-or any other job that allows one to smoke pot all day-Larry became a photographer.

Balki is thrilled to meet up with his cousin in Chicago. But on the way to a poetry slam at a coffeehouse, Balki sprained his ankle. Luckily, he went to an emergency room at the local hospital and got it taken care of-free of charge! Way to go Balki!

Balki is a shepherd by trade, and shepherd jobs are hard to come by. No worries for Balkie though, ACORN just hired him to register voters in Chicago. This week alone he got 6000 people to register as democrats-many of these new voters are currently alive and a majority of them are NOT house pets.

Larry doesn’t have health insurance yet, but he did score some medical marijuana. With Balkie signing up dead people to vote-and Larry developing black and white photos he took of a model peeing on a crucifix, they are both living the American dream.

Sha Laa La Laa…

Violence From The Right? Really? Check Your Own House First

Posted on March 30th, 2010 by Fingers Malloy

I don’t recall anyone in the tea party movement throwing eggs at Nancy Pelosi and other Dems as they slowly strolled through the anti-Obamacare protests 2 weeks ago in Washington DC.

Oh, and I am still waiting for the media to come up with any footage of those protesters hurling racial and anti-gay insults at the Congressional delegation. Fail…

But here is some video of Harry Reid supporters throwing eggs at what appears to be a tea party bus, and one guy who wants to knock Andrew Breitbart’s head off.  Ahhh, lefty tolerance…
