Planning the Revolution
The leaders of this revolutionary movement are convinced that action is needed at two levels, pressures from below and from above. The latter takes place by political action in Congress and all other branches of government. Getting out the right voters and expanding the role of government are crucial to the success of their plans.
The pressure from below is to fill the streets with rioters and protestors to create the impression that the demanded changes are popular and inevitable. (The books and articles of Frances Piven and Richard Cloward, e.g., Poor Peoples Movements, have taught many the fine art of persuasion by intimidation and thuggery.)
Saul Alinsky (1909 1972) was another expert in teaching his followers how to galvanize the poor and other minorities into action and to mobilize them for the revolution in
But he also knew that even if all the poor people would organize, that would not be enough to get the radical changes he wanted. What is also needed is to win support among the white majority, and for that he needed middle class activists such as Hillary Clinton, whom he saw as potential emissaries to the America heartland and as middle-class guerrillas.(56-57)
Hillary Clinton was much impressed by Alinskys ideas and they kept in touch until his death in 1972.
She devoted her 1969 senior thesis at
Alinsky and the Piven and Cloward team have taught their followers to manipulate left wing activists into positions of power and to overload the welfare departments in the cities. Their greatest success occurred in
The Shadow Party is not widely known because it is not a party as commonly understood but an expansive network of front groups that supposedly are independent of any party. In fact, they are used to get around the limits imposed by the McCain Feingold legislation on fund raising by political parties. They also claim that they are not engaged in electioneering for a particular party, but the reality is that their actions are intended to benefit only the Democratic Party.
Though the Shadow Party indeed lives in the shadow, its front organizations are well known. They include the so-called Seven Sisters: MoveOn.org, Center for American Progress, America Votes, America Coming Together, The Media Fund, Joint Victory Campaign 2004, and The Thunder Road Group LLC. There are many more, including ACORN.
Who is George Soros?
Horowitz and Poe write that the founding of the Shadow Party occurred on July 17, 2003, when a team of political strategists, wealthy donors, left wing labor leaders and other democratic activists met at George Soros estate on Long Island, where a total of $23 million was pledged to rejuvenate America Coming Together (ACT).
Soros announced its founding in an interview with a Washington Post reporter in November 2003. To underscore that this organization was serious about changing
George Soros is a Hungarian- born Jew who survived the Nazi occupation, studied and worked in
In September 1992 Soros became known as the man who broke the Bank of England when he forced the Bank to devalue the pound sterling. The UK Treasury estimated the cost of Black Wednesday to be 3.4 billion pound sterling. Horowitz and Poe write that this devaluation launched a tsunami of financial turmoil from
When I sold sterling short in 1992
I was in effect taking money out of the pockets of British taxpayers. But if I had tried to take social consequences into account, it would have thrown off my risk-reward calculation, and my profit would have been reduced.
The New Lenin
Horowitz and Poe write that George Soros in one of the most powerful men on earth, and they call him the architect and guiding genius of the Shadow Party, its Lenin. Like Lenin, Soros excels in manipulating economic and political forces at the highest levels. But he also resembles Lenin in diligently cultivating the insurgent forces frombelow.
On the surface Soros is a well-known public figure often in the news. Yet he remains elusive, and his goals are obscured by a smokescreen of denial and calculated misdirection. In conclusion, Horowitz and Poe issue this warning against the danger Soros represents.
He has assembled an army of radical allies who have long been at war with the American system
.Soros has constructed a party, a Shadow Party, unlike any in American history....[It] is more like a Leninist vanguard party, fully as conspiratorial and just as unaccountable. Moreover, it is a party improbably constructed by a financial tycoon, skilled at the manipulation of money and markets. As only such an individual could, Soros has woven his conspiracy out of institutional elements plucked from every level of the existing social hierarchy
. It is the party of rebels but also the party of rulers a corporate unity of capital and labor. And it has been insinuated into the heart of the American system. (242-3)
