‘Community Organizing’: Not a Joke

Posted on | June 23, 2011 | 8 Comments

My buddy Matthew Vadum has a new book, Subversion Inc.: How Obama’s Red Shirts Are Still Terrorizing and Ripping Off American Taxpayers, and it includes a very interesting passage (p. 27) where Newt Gingrich said Republicans were wrong to treat Obama’s “community organizing” career as a joke:

The GOP’s mockery “trivialized Obama and Obama is not a trivial person,” Gingrich said in an exclusive interview with Vadum featured in the book:

In [Gingrich’s] opinion it was a strategic blunder for Palin and Giuliani . . . [Gingrich said:] “Obama is the most serious radical threat to traditional America ever to occupy the White House.” It would have been better if Republican leaders “had gotten up and said, here is what [Obama] was teaching, and they had taken the audience through the five principles of [radical organizer Saul] Alinsky.” Such a discussion “would have sobered the country. It wasn’t a funny thing. It was a profound insight into how radical Obama is.”
