The first 57 seconds of James O’Keefe’s latest undercover video interview, of a Clinton delegate from California, confirms what many have long suspected: Hillary Clinton’s real goal of complete and total confiscation of all firearms from every American citizen is being hidden behind benign and persuasive phrases such as “common sense gun control” and “protect our families,” etc.
It also reveals what happens when the “useful idiot” in the video learns that she has been exposed for what she is: a mouthpiece for the movement to disarm America and ultimately turn it into a totalitarian state.
Most importantly it reveals just how closely the Clinton campaign is following Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals in its attempt to install a totalitarian government (impossible without total gun confiscation) in the United States.
First: O’Keefe and his Project Veritas. In 2006, 22-year-old O’Keefe cut his teeth by secretly recording verbal encounters with staffers in Planned Parenthood clinics. Those encounters revealed various violations of law that exposed the group and hurt its credibility nationally. In 2009, he used the same strategy — undercover videotaping of encounters with staffers — to expose ACORN (Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now).
In those videos O’Keefe uncovered evidence of efforts by staffers to avoid detection by law enforcement for the crimes of tax evasion, human trafficking, and child prostitution. Following these revelations Congress voted to freeze federal funding for the group, forcing it into bankruptcy in 2010.
Two weeks ago O’Keefe’s group uncovered the hypocrisy of anti-gunners by going to their homes, representing themselves as members of a faux anti-gun group, and asking if they would be willing to post “gun-free zone” signs on their property, in keeping with their public positions supporting such zones. The group could not find a single instance where an anti-gunner would be willing to post such a sign.
The “journalist/reporter” from Project Veritas Action (PVA) posed as a caucus supporter and approached California Democrat delegate Mary Bayer in a local bar. When he asked Bayer whether she thought Clinton’s goal is to ban all guns, she responded “For sure … you have to take that sort of moderate [language] ‘We just wanna have common sense legislation so our children are safe. You say s*** like that and then people will buy into it.”
She added: “Saying you want to ban guns altogether, that’s going to p*** everybody off.
A couple of minutes later into the video O’Keefe records Bayer’s response when she learns, by seeing a poster of herself copied from the undercover conversation with the PVA agent, that she has been exposed as a “useful idiot” in the campaign against guns. She grabs the poster, is confronted by police, denies her conversation, and becomes incoherent.
Assuming that as a Clinton delegate Bayer is knowledgable about the tactics of higher-level Democrats, there’s much to be learned from this 57-second exposure of real intentions and Bayer’s participation as a useful idiot. The key point is learning how closely Clinton’s anti-gun campaign hews to Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals. First, Alinsky taught that true revolutionaries do not publicly flaunt their radicalism. They cut their hair, they put on suits and speak in soothing terms designed to hide their real intentions. But they never veer from their true purpose:
A Marxist begins with this prime truth: all evils are caused by the exploitation of the proletariat by the capitalists … [that it must be changed] into a new social order of the dictatorship of the proletariat [leading to] the political paradise of communism.
In that quest, the end justifies the means, according to Alinsky (and his disciple Hillary Clinton):
The third rule of ethics of means and ends is that in war the end justifies almost any means….
The tenth rule … is you do what you can with what you have and clothe if with moral garments.
Hillary is a great admirer of Alinsky, meeting with him in person several times while doing her senior thesis on his theories while at Wellesley College. Alinsky is following the rules of his master, to whom he dedicated his efforts:
Lest we forget at least an over-the-shoulder acknowledgment to the very first radical: from all our legends, mythology, and history … the first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom — Lucifer.
