How to Combat the Rules for Radicals Against You


You might be familiar with the Rules for Radicals by Saul Alinsky, which he learned from his Marxist professor. This article is aimed at providing the background in terms of what the rules are, how they currently, apply to the situation of minorities in South Africa and how to combat them.

These rules have been in play since the French Revolution. It was then applied by the London Society against the Boers on the frontiers to push them out of the Eastern Cape. Secular humanism was based on the philosophies of Jean Jacques Rousseau, Robespierre, Voltaire and later Carl Marx. Authors of the books Das Kapital and the Communist Manifesto by Carl Marx and Friedrich Engels wrote on abolishing family life and how to play identity politics. They preached about community organization. This took place during the French revolution as well as during the Leninist Bolsheviks revolution. Later Marxists infiltrated the United States of America for the sole purpose of attempting to overthrow the American government. Many philosophers became professors in American universities in order to influence their students with Marxism. One of the students in Chicago was Saul Alinsky. His professor was Robert Park who taught him the ways to community organizing and the rules for it.

The Rules for Radicals as written by Saul Alinsky, are as follows:

  1. Power is not only what you have but what the enemy thinks you have.
  2. Never go outside the expertise of your people.
  3. Whenever possible go outside the expertise of the enemy.
  4. Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.
  5. Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.
  6. A good tactic is one your people enjoy.
  7. A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag.
  8. Keep the pressure on.
  9. The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself.
  10. The major premise for tactics is the development of operations that will maintain constant pressure on the opposition.
  11. If you push a negative hard and deep enough it will break through into its counter side
  12. The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative.
  13. Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.

Notice how these rules were played out and are still in play today.

Starting with rule number one.

Power is not only what you have, but what the enemy thinks you have.

This is exactly how it is being done today in South Africa and America. How? Through the media. Most media are biased in favor of radical leftists. Misinformation leads the public to believe that extremists have more power than what they really have.

Rule two and three. Never go outside the expertise of your people. Whenever possible go outside the expertise of the enemy. The leftists, progressives and the ANC still do this.

Rule four. Make the enemy live up to its own rule book. Our belief system. Religions and religious writings are often used against the minority.

Rule five: Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon. Minorities are ridiculed daily via media i.e. news articles, television, social media, and broadcasts. The purpose is to make minorities feel ashamed of themselves and their identity.

Rule six and seven:

A good tactic is one your people enjoy. A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag. Both are done, enjoyed and dragged on for too long.

Rule eight: Keep the pressure on. Minorities feel pressure every day.

Rule nine: The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself. This is exactly what radicals in South Africa are doing through the media. Threats are made and are often more terrifying than the real thing. The result is we are afraid, walk on eggshells, too scared to offend anyone.

Rule ten: The major premise for tactics is the development of operations that will maintain a constant pressure upon the opposition. More strategies are developed to keep the pressure on through fear-mongering, shaming, name tags, and other insults and intimidation.

Rule eleven: If you push a negative hard and deep enough it will break through into its countryside. The ANC government, the elitists and radicals succeed in this step. They have accomplished much through BEE, BBBEE, and AA. Minorities have been targeted as being the negative people and painted as such.

Rule twelve: The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative or what they call constructive alternative. This includes the expropriation of land without compensation together with stricter Affirmative Actions, BEE and BBBEE. This strips the minorities of full ownerships over their businesses.

Rule thirteen: Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it. A very effective and dangerous rule. Which target did they choose? The Whites of course.

Here is the truth. Since 1890 (1902 & 1910) the British Empire targeted the Boers. Again in the late 1900s to date, the ANC has the Boer as their target with the help of the British and the Broederbond. Known today as the Afrikanerbond. The Boers were and still are accused of racism, segregation, oppression, land theft and apartheid. These lies told by the British government in order to break the Boers and exterminate them. The Boers are not guilty of these accusations. The British themselves could be guilty of this. They constructed the first apartheid laws from the British Parliament in 1807 and the 1913 Land Act was drafted in the British Parliament as well. Stripping many none whites of their land. The next group targeted are the Afrikaners for the same crime that the British were guilty of. The white English people of South Africa, in general, are falsely accused of genocide of black people.

The first exposure whites had to the Bantu tribes was no earlier than the 1770s. More than 130 years after the first whites came to the Cape. The Caucasians did not, as is sometimes claimed, find the black tribes living in peace since there were no black people at the Cape. The first contact made with the Xhosa tribe was in 1779 when attacks against the frontier Boers took place. The black Tribes were never peaceful but violent warriors.

During Mfekane, Shaka Zulu murdered over two million black people as he built the Zulu empire. Dingaan assassinated Shaka Zulu and additionally killed another two million black people. Many Bantu were displaced during these periods. Mzilikazi fled from Shaka Zulu with his Matabeles after stealing some of Shaka’s cattle resulting in more killing of blacks. This displaced and cleansed the land. The Boers in coalition with the Sotho’s from the Drakensberg Mountains and the Tswana broke the power of Mzilikazi at the Battle of Vegkop under the command of Hendrik Potgieter. This was done in self-defense. Mzilikazi and his Matabeles fled over the Limpopo.

The battle of Blood River in 1838 was a result of the Boers defending themselves when the land south of the Tugela was purchased from Dingaan by Piet Retief. Documentation of this still exists. The Freestate and Transvaal region was unpopulated. This is where some Boers settled in peace after purchasing land from the Swazis, as King Mswati 111 will confirm.

One also needs to understand the custom of slavery. Slavery is not the invention of the white man. The Egyptians started slavery. The Bible bears witness to this. In more modern times many African slaves were captured by powerful black chieftains and sold to Muslims and Spanish in the Trans-Atlantic Trade. The western nations were first to abolish slavery.

The problem minorities face is that they are losing the psychological battle from the left by surrendering to them. By trying too hard not to offend. Why do we do this? Because minorities fall for the false propaganda by the mainstream media which makes the left appear more powerful than they truly are. We care too much about what other people think. The truth no longer matters. We apologize for crimes we didn’t commit and for our skin color. We are afraid of being called racist if we speak the truth or offend the other side. When we attempt mobilizing the brown people, Khoi and San people we make the same mistake. Assuming what they are thinking and trying hard not to offend them.

The Brown people and the Khoisan prefer honesty. You would have lost them if you assume what they are thinking since most of them do not think the way the media makes you believe. The way we are continuing is not the way to freedom. We need to stop apologizing for crimes we did not commit. We ought to stop trying so hard to be politically correct in order not to hurt or to offend anyone. Does this mean that there is no hope? No! there is hope and there is a solution. We need to change our mentality, our thinking, and our approach. Firstly, we ought to realize that the radical left, the ANC and EFF, the elitists and other opponents to our freedom are not as powerful and big as the mainstream media depicts them. Less than 10% of the black population is in favor of land expropriation without compensation or BEE, BBBEE, and Affirmative Action.  They prefer the equal opportunity for all. The majority of the black population have no confidence in any politicians. According to the Institute for Race Relations, the majority of black people have no problem with secession. The brown people the Khoisan, the Griquas and the Namas do not have problems with the white people, whether English, Boers, or the Afrikaners and would love to work for the good of all.

A group of Khoisan is still camping at the Union Buildings demanding an audience with President Cyril Ramaphosa to discuss a memorandum they submitted to the government last year concerning the recognition of the Khoisan as the First Nation of South Africa by the order Boerevolk and Boere Republikeine and AWB with the Boer Republic flags. Mainstream media did not report correctly about this since it is in the best interests to keep us divided and misinformed for the purpose of control.

Most importantly, we ought to stop allowing the progressives and politicians to define who we are. We must learn to protect and defend one another in public. For those of us who were in the army, air force or navy and the military healthcare during the time when military service was compulsory, will remember one thing: “You leave no comrade behind”. We need to apply this principle to our current situation. We need not trample on our fellow countrymen if they are slandered by the media or politicians, but rather protect and defend them. We need to carry one another. Allow room for mistakes. No one is perfect. Remember, we have the truth on our side. God is with us, as long as we believe. We should stop playing according to their rule books and stop being reactional. Stay focused. Let go of political correctness. Stop trying not to offend anyone. Someone will always be offended and feelings get hurt. Be true to yourself, be truthful, but with respect and with love. Walk with your head held high and stop worrying what others might think. Be honest with yourself.

In conclusion. The very same strategy and rules for Radicals by Saul Alinsky are as old as the fall of man in the Garden of Eden. Satan used it and is still using it today to deceive us. He was called the accuser of brethren. He is using it today to neutralize Christians and to defeat us. We need to remember that we are already forgiven by God through His Son Jesus Christ. All guilt is removed from us, let us stop living under condemnation placed over us by Satan or the radical leftists and opposition to secession. Let us live in victory, knowing that we are no longer under condemnation, but set free through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Let us not be conformed to what the progressives
