I guess it’s throwback Tuesday on the blog, I’m hitting a lot of subjects I covered in depth in the past but sort of moved on from.
Probably many of you know about Saul Alinsky and his influence on the current president, the Catholic Church (especially the Archdiocese of Chicago), and the advance of cultural marxism in the US generally. True to his paramour, satan, he has been a one man wrecking crew. Coupled with the Frankfurt School penetration of the federalized education industrial complex, Alinskyite “social justice” warriors have probably done more to advance the creeping socialization of the United States than any other group.
Someone at EWTN apparently recently figured this out, because there is a new movie coming out on 09/22 that features much EWTN talent, like Fr. Mitch Pacwa, Fr. Andrew Apostoli, etc., discussing the baleful influence of Saul Alinsky and his Rules of Radicals. I’m sure it’s a well done production and a great message to get out, but, ummm………where were you in 2008?
Well, the reason is, there is always a steady stream of folks who have advanced to a point where a message like what I expect from this movie will have a significant impact on them. So while perhaps quite a bit late to stop the fundamental transformation of our nation, perhaps it will help prepare a few souls for the future that awaits us:
From the producers of the Gabriel Award winning television series “SAINTS ALIVE!” on EWTN, comes “A WOLF IN SHEEP’S CLOTHING”, a new feature docudrama on Saul Alinsky, the father of community organizing and author of “Rules for Radicals”. The film is a lens into America’s cultural Marxism euphemistically called ‘progressivism.’
With all the radical transformations of America and its religious freedoms, politics, economy, education, healthcare, courts, media, cinema, music, art, architecture; the film will help Catholics and all Christians understand “how we’ve gotten to where we are today” and “what’s behind” the amorality, sexual revolution, political correctness, gender confusion that is destroying our families and culture.
This is no conspiracy theory! It’s the real story of Alinsky and his movement. It’s the classic teachings of the Church with insights from philosopher Dr. Alice von Hildebrand, Fr. Mitch Pacwa, S.J. (who as a Jesuit scholastic was trained in Alinskyian organizing), Fathers Glenn Sudano & Andrew Apostoli (co-founders with Fr. Benedict Groeschel of Franciscan Friars of the Renewal), Stephanie Block (who wrote the definitive 4 volume study of Alinskyian organizing) [Stephanie’s great. She’s always worth a listen – Tantumblogo]. Actors play Alinsky, Popes St. John Paul II & Leo XIII, Blessed Jerzy Popieluszko & others.
Most interesting to contemplate is the degree to which leftists and left-leaners within the Church were eager to provide the Alinskyite movement with its first big success at penetrating a church for the much sought after money and moral credibility. It’s been no stopping for them ever since, which is also how we have gotten such poisonous doctrines as the “seamless garment.”
But perhaps most interesting of all is the correlation between the present pontificate and the beliefs, methods, and techniques of personal destruction honed and Saul Alinsky. I’m sure that won’t be part of this movie, but you can ruminate on that as an extra credit assignment to work on at home.
