Saul Alinsky is the Che Guevara of the USA. Before he died in 1972, he provided battle plans to the far left in the form of written "Rules for Radicals." It is said that Hillary Clinton wrote a paper at Wellesley College about Alinsky, but I have not been able to confirm that.
Alinsky laid out 11 strategies to destroy political opposition to the left. Rule number five is this: "Ridicule is man's most potent weapon. It's hard to counter-attack ridicule, and it infuriates the opposition, which then reacts to your advantage."
Rule number eight: "Keep the pressure on."
As one who has been on the receiving end of Alinsky's war machine for more than 25 years, I well understand the ridicule factor, so to speak. And it's never been used more than it is today.
Just ask Donald Trump and Joe Biden. Ridicule cuts both ways.
Fox News is the latest example of nonstop ridicule thanks to the Dominion voting machine lawsuit. The story is weeks old, yet every day the corporate media finds another way to highlight it. This will never end.
And sometimes, the press simply regurgitates the story with no new information. USA Today, a liberal enterprise did that a few days ago just in case someone missed the first three thousand reports.
At this point, there is little FNC can do but hope it wins in court. However, Alinsky would be disappointed if he were still around. The network will keep its core audience of older conservative viewers. They will stand by their men and women, having nowhere else to go.
Better call Saul. Bad news for the dearly departed. Worse news for the leftist media.
