Carnahan Tries to “Alinsky” FOX News

September 17th, 2010 by sclemons · No Comments

“Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it. In conflict tactics there are certain rules that [should be regarded] as universalities. One is that the opposition must be singled out as the target and ‘frozen.’…

“…any target can always say, ‘Why do you center on me when there are others to blame as well?’ When your ‘freeze the target,’ you disregard these [rational but distracting] arguments…. Then, as you zero in and freeze your target and carry out your attack, all the ‘others’ come out of the woodwork very soon. They become visible by their support of the target…’

“One acts decisively only in the conviction that all the angels are on one side and all the devils on the other.” — Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals” (pps.127-134)

Is it a coincidence that Carnahan is now using the flap to raise money for her struggling campaign? We’re not sure if attacking FOX NEWS will motivate an unenthused African American base to come out for her in November.
