In the rock and a hard place segment tonight the -- Saul a Lynn ski keeps popping up in the presidential campaign.
It was a far left social activist based in Chicago died in 1972 but not before leaving all kinds of strategies for radical Americans back.
Secretary of state Hillary Clinton wrote her college thesis on Lewinsky and his organizing plan.
-- yesterday Fox News -- -- correspondent Ed Henry asked this question.
Your fingers keeps they have campaign trail there the president's vision conference -- -- community organizer.
I have heard you -- but the president's background.
As a community organizer is well documented in the president's own books so.
In that field obviously contributed to.
Who he is today.
But his experiences.
Based -- -- But -- now -- -- -- an -- I don't know what he -- what condition he was answering their left Solomon's key.
You know for people who are involved in political science and at various this guy.
-- always in the great tradition of call marks.
Land and not real people won't even said he admired those -- okay he said it it is writing said he admired them.
And that he he didn't respect private property rights he thought that.
Everybody should be guaranteed a certain.
Style of life.
And he worked toward that in a very aggressive way but my question is this is it fair for Newt Gingrich to.
In -- although Lynn -- into the election.
-- fair I mean he can say whatever he wants but you know talking about it that guy's been dead for forty years in China -- to Obama.
Because she would have vocal rules for radicals -- -- -- anyone there for a bombers or radical and we played that game four years ago it didn't seem to get Republicans elected.
We play the game try to -- President Obama to Bill Ayers to Reverend Wright to solo -- he.
We do we fight that tooth I don't know why I mean it didn't work less time but now with president -- being so devoted.
To big government so devoted.
Two income redistribution income equality.
It seemed practical we didn't know we were getting what the president are so it's always harder to make the case that he was a radical or you admired radicals now it's a little easier to -- can.
Please that he is.
Married to this idea -- believe the Republicans have misstated -- -- equal outcomes the president by the way the stimulus package huge game went to the numbers before.
40% of that for tax cuts part of the reason.
The it's in the deficits gone -- so much as 40% of that package with a very thing Republicans and big business and they want.
They want tax credit tax cuts this isn't big government this is actually giving tax money back that's 40% of what the president in the -- Even President Obama would do would admit any I think he's gonna say it again tonight that the the federal government in his opinion has a tremendous role.
In capitalism in -- shoring and out com.
For American workers and that's what Lewinsky I think that's -- -- What you what you wanna -- everything -- Dellucci was more of an organizer and I tactical guy that William Buckley said was a genius and organizing by the way it was more about and I.
To help the dis empowered become empowered vs Machiavelli who which is what I think Republicans used to keep the people of power -- to keep power.
-- that which we thought okay let.
From tomorrow let's keep in mind -- Lynn -- was and how he directly influenced Barack Obama so long list he wrote rules for radicals and 71 and dedicated it to Lucifer.
He was the godfather yeah a lot of good yes like Lucifer who I'm not making it up -- -- -- Lucifer war.
So I don't yeah.
-- -- -- This -- dedicated to -- for this is the godfather of the leftist movement Barack Obama and it came at a Chicago Barack Obama when he got to the University of Chicago actually taught.
A Lynn -- 101 as of course there are so let's not just call it was basically called ballistic tactics -- Barack Obama actually taught.
But keep in mind a broader point about a -- -- and this is why your point about.
Obama now having a record that we can married to his philosophy and the tactics the -- Lewinsky this is where it's so important.
A list he talked about organizing minorities and other groups.
Too content to articulate their grievances that -- -- -- lies on their grievances which the community organizer like Barack Obama hopefully it supplied to them.
-- that they would mobilize against the establish itself.
Slow report that we have not.
What's wrong with poor people important and people who are not getting what they think they should get.
All right for whatever reason organizing and having a voice which won't remember this is the very essence of socialism this isn't that the tactics of -- -- and Barack Obama are geared toward.
Wealth redistribution it's all in the service of that goal just a matter and in every -- -- -- look a -- he didn't respect private property.
And that is but I remember I don't remember this is what Occupy Wall Street is all about this is the same revolution okay we're -- let Obama has not embraced Occupy Wall Street he said he had.
First of see that it hurt -- -- a couple of comments rightward and now he's had a had a party Nancy Pelosi in all embrace that are.
Unless he was not -- -- did not believe in communism assertions believe in tactics to get people to get what they want you do with a lot of private probably got to -- did you say you can say he was an economist or so it was not.
But when you say I don't believe in private property I -- human rights above -- property rights and what you -- there's nothing to do with what Obama does employ -- supermarket and -- -- -- -- -- on your I would never -- I -- -- embracing a -- he's.
Belief system he's embracing certain abilities and tactics to help -- this is fair for Gingrich to bring up this radical as you try to tie into Obama as us.
-- -- you don't have to try to tie anything Barack Obama news not Carney there.
Rock Obama does not already doing what I problem I don't question you may not be nice if -- bill of course he -- he solo is do you think he's taught this.
Party who I I don't know where carnahan's I've -- about -- minute -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- I'll get a -- that's with a Republican got a little -- then it absolutely -- and outlook Obama would take issue with the radical part but not with a similarly.
Part of his -- -- tactics as well they do the very outcome I'm Alan nearby Alley for easier out I think once Diddy party is actually usually little things yeah that's what I understand the right -- has you're suggesting that it got to right now you all know that secretly member of the whenever though it's -- -- Smart.
