Businesses, institutions and politicians need to learn the difference between communities of interest and radical political groups masquerading as such.
As was discussed on Pratt on Texas back in 2007, the West Texas Organizing Strategy is an official arm of the radical Chicago-based Industrial Areas Foundation. You’ll find them listed on the IAF’s website among a few dozen other hives of Saul Alinsky socialist groups around the nation. That Lubbock has one should be a concern to Liberty lovers.
From the IAF website: “The current generation of IAF organizations began in the mid-1970's and was the product of the insight and effort of the person who succeeded Saul Alinsky as executive director of the IAF...”
Quoting again: “The leaders and organizers of the Industrial Areas Foundation build organizations [such as the WTOS] whose primary purpose is power… and whose chief product is social change.”
This is where Obama’s change rhetoric is rooted. It’s not about fixing problems but, about remaking the United States into a government controlled economy. Individual liberty and opportunity are opposed by this group, in that they preach that a poor person cannot escape poverty on his own initiative. That’s a philosophy which runs counter to the entire experience and success of the American people and is a justification for government control.
The WTOS is rooted in America’s most successful group of radical social revolutionaries. Texas politicians and institutions should stop treating them as an innocent community interest group – they are Obama’s very radical, completely political, community agitators of the worst type.
