Alinskette describes individuals who accept a particular political, philosophical, or religious viewpoint without adequately studying the subject. They are usually characterized by their adamant repetition of only parts of a news story, leaving out its full context, or repetition of stories by often prejudiced reporters.
The name is derived from Saul Alinsky, author of the book “Rules for Radicals” which is a text book on how to use Alinskettes(even though they are not so named) to empower groups whose goals are not necessarily consistent with “All Men are Created Equal” or justice for all.
Note: Your author believes God was speaking to him as well as Ezekiel in Chapter 3:17-21. Also before posting this page, Your author prays the prayer in Psalms 19:14.
You May Be an Alinskette if:
- You have not read the book “Rules for Radicals” or the review at http://politico-cat.com/wp/wordpress/813-2/ in the last 10 years.
- You have not referenced the Declaration of Independence or the Constitution of the United States in the last two years.
- You have not read the Declaration of Independence or the Constitution of the United States in the last ten years or had a history course dealing with those two documents.
- You have not read the platforms of the Democratic and Republican parties.
- You refuse to get your news from NYT, CNN, NBC, ABC, Washington Post because they are reportedly left or progressive organizations.
- You refuse to get your news from Fox News, One America News Network, or Reuters because they are reportedly right wing organizations.
- You repeat quotations of political figures without hearing the figures make the quotation yourself.
- You quote people without the context in which the quote is contained.
- You believe hearsay, opinions, and the like are as important as direct evidence (as defined in rules of evidence).
You Can Remove The Label If:
- You demonstrate you have read and understand the implications of Alinsky’s rules.
- You give the reason that the Declaration of Independence should be considered as part of the “Law of the Land”.
- You discuss mistakes made in the original Constitution and/or mistakes in the Amendments.
- You can give reasons why the Democratic or Republican Party gives you more or less freedom.
- You start a practice of either posting in context quotations of people that you have heard or give references to those quotations.
- You can give the reason and defend it that the Senate Trial of Donald Trump failed to convict.
