Organize This

Some folks are having way too much fun making light of (or tearing apart) the community organizer line on Barack Obama's already thin resume, and left-wing bloggers and media types are not amused.

They got their marching orders (no doubt an "important action alert!") and have begun astroturfing blogs and news sites with the following absurd comparison virtually overnight:

Jesus was a community organizer and Pontius Pilate was a governor.

That's a fun gross exaggeration to play with.

Let's do our own moronic comparison, using actual Democrats from this millennia for comparison instead of religious figures born thousands of years ago.

Bull Conner was a community organizer and George Wallace was a governor.

Their work, of course, was assisted by decades-earlier work of another Democrat community organizer, Nathan Bedford Forrest. Does anyone remember the community he helped pull together?

Of course you do.

Is it fair in any way to put Obama into this company? Of course it isn't. But Barack Obama has as much (or more) in common with these segregationists and Klansman as he does Jesus.

Actually, that isn't true.

To the best of my knowledge, none of these men were part of to a cultish theology that said if God didn't favor their race, then he should be murdered. Barack Obama went to a radical church that practiced this God-threatening Black Liberation Theology for more than 20 years.

A little more relevant for Barack Obama are a few other folks a little closer to his physical and ideological homes.

Charles Manson organized a community of his own, one that Bernadine Dorhn was certainly impressed with. You remember Bernie Dorhn, don't you? She and her husband Bill Ayers had helped form yet another community, one called the Weather Underground. Years later, when they were done with their declared war against the United States, they helped community organizer and friend Barack Obama organize his first political fundraiser in their home.

If liberals want to play games about the meaning and definition of the words community organizer, then by all means, lets play.

It will be a lot more fun for us than them.

There are bad community organizers and good one. It would be easy to make a list of both. The same goes for Governors.

The example is nonsensical to anyone except Obama's cult followers who think he is the second coming of the Messiah. But since they like to play this game:

Pilate was an oppressive community organizer hired by Rome and Jesus was (is) the loving Governor of all things who was sent by His Father.

Sorry about the double post. The first time gave me the high levels of traffic notice.

I know I may be invoking Godwin's Law here but wasn't Hitler a community organizer at first?

Sounds about right. He ran an outfit that tried to take over the government and succeeded.

The thing is, when you think about it, there are tens of millions of community organizers in our country from a vast array of organizations, mostly volunteer and not paid who do great work in their communities via their organizations.

As quick example that just came to mind, the Law Bar is an organization that serves the community and they go out of the way to organize their members to do work, such as pro bono work for the poor and indigent, in their respective communities.

Pro bono, meaning for free. I wonder how much of that work Obama did in addition to his previous work as a paid community organizer.

An estimated 125 people were shot and killed over the summer. That's nearly double the number of U.S. soldiers killed in Iraq over the same time period.

According to the Defense Department, 65 U.S. soldiers were killed in combat in Iraq. About the same number were killed in Afghanistan over that same period.

Perhaps Biden can come up with a plan to partition the city while we withdrawal all Americans ... from Chicago.

Sounds like they really need a "community organizer".

Almost forgot ..

Don Corleone was a “community organizer” .. Elliot "Client #9" Spitzer was a governor

There was a letter in the Boston Globe today claiming that the problem was people don't know what community organizers actually do. The problem is that people do know what community organizers actually do. Exactly 2 people benefitted from Obamas organizing. Both named Obama.

It's hard out here for a community organizer.

Posted by: McGehee at September 5, 2008 02:04 PM

As I recall, Jesus did not rake in a lot of cash as some of our modern day c.o. types. Millions of us volunteer in our community each year but it takes a "special" sort of person to make that their "day" job and of course expect the rest of us to foot the bill for their "work."

The Obots blew it. With their witless and demeaning insistence to refer to Palin as the former mayor of a small town, utterly ignoring that she is the elected Governor of AK they begged for this. And Barry then complains that they have skipped his many other endeavors. Only no one has ignored anything. We have asked Barry just what he did as a community organizer and he will not answer. He will respond but he will not answer. Why? Because the answer will reveal he was connected to ACORN which has been blatantly falsifying a)votes, b)grant applications and c)their operational/financial records. And sadly, not much beside that. I seem to remember Gingrich was nearly forced from office because a course he taught "To Renew American Civilization" was considered a partisan activity since it actually endorsed America as a decent place. Obviously this harms the electoral dreams of Democrats and makes it ineligible for non-profit status. ACORN commits crimes and lesser frauds that strip the public coffers, empty the pockets of the gullible and produces NOTHING of benefit to their supposed constituents. But as a Leftwing group, they are exempt from scrutiny. If he cannot mention ACORN someone else will. That will be yet another unfair and racist attack.

Let's keep it to South Chicago organizers like Capone or Alinsky. Illinois governors? Take your pick. Most went to jail.

I saw a list of qualifications for a community organizer the other day and after reading it, realized, yippee, I've been a community organizer. Only thing is, we called it "volunteer coordinator" and I didn't get paid.

Oh and on the quals listed the job required a h.s. diploma or G.E.D. No requirement for a Columbia/Harvard grad with a law degree. Didn't even require someone with a degree from the Univ. of Idaho.

Hmmm, now that I think of it, Bill Ayers was a community organizer, too.

Posted by: Dusty at September 5, 2008 02:31 PM

Aside from the fact that this idiocy again goes in the Messianic direction that camp Obama really wants to avoid, let's note that Obama was in fact a failure as a community organizer who took credit rightly belonging to others for rather meager accomplishments. And that Obama himself recognized that community organizing is an ineffectual BS gig -- or used that as the rationalization for his failures.

1. OBAMA as President
2. Pelosi as Speaker of the House
3. Reid as Senate Majority Leader

The last time we had a triple threat was during Jimmy Carter when the prime rate was in the 20 % range. History speaks louder than campaign rhetoric. Let's not repeat it!

Al Capone was a community Organizer in Chicago and God is the governor of Heaven.

Posted by: Greg H. at September 5, 2008 02:55 PM

Using Obama's loose definition of "community organizer", Stalin, Mao, Atilla the Hun and Al Capone were "community organizers" and they were all in favor of "change". To be fair it should be pointed out that John McCain and Sarah Palin were also noted "community organizers". As commander of his fighter squaderon, McCain organized his pilots to fly to North Vietnam and regularly reorganize Hanoi. And Sarah Palin was a "community organizer" as a PTA member, mayor, state commissioner and state governor. In each new position she took on more responsibility and accountability. Obama never even got to PTA.

I believe, in the southside Chicago sense, "bagman" and "community organizer" are pretty much synonymous. I have a childhood friend who did 3 years in the federal penitentary for being "bagman" for a black state senator. The senator is doing ten. What's in the Annenberg papers, and where did the Annenberg millions go, BO? 'Cause hope and change is so pricey, yo!

Ahem... You folks are forgetting the ultimate American community organizer of the 20th century... Jim Jones!

All this talk about community organizers, so let me add my two bits. If we are to believe the New Testament, then, yes, Jesus was a community organizer and Pontius Pilate was the historical governor. The problem is how many of us really believe the New Testament, and, oh, let's throw in the supposed prophet Mohammed of the Quran as well. A good story, but a bit questionable when we look at "real" documented history.

I for one am tired of the jabs at Barack Obama over his time as a community organizer. So what, folks, what is really important is what did he accomplish as a result of this effort? It appears not much, but let's let him tell his side of the story.

Posted by: Mescalero at September 5, 2008 10:28 PM

Let's put it this way, I've met many people from many different occupations. Bartenders, construction workers, vice presidents, teachers, engineers, architects, busboys, waitresses, hostesses, cab drivers, truckers, soldiers, etc....You get the idea, not once have I ever met a "community organizer." What the hell is a "community organizer?" How much does it pay? What are the hours? Benefits? Travel? 401K's? Expense account? What are you supposed to wear? I can answer most these questions for every other job.

Excellent minds on this site!
I smile seeing that some born Americans are started to get the picture – still NOT clear enough!!!!

I was born and lived 30 years behind the IRON CURTAIN – let me help you out.
A "community organizer" is a “POLITICAL AGITATOR” a Communist Party Representative who has supreme control over that community and keeps VERY detailed files for each household.

NO one is his own person or should dare to act independent of the Communist Party agenda. Everyone who visits you is put on "community organizer's" list of suspects and traced down for investigation – they must learn the “true reason” you have been visited by someone NOT living in that neighborhood.

The Community Organizer = Political Agitator put everyone under his hill for the "common cause and community’s benefit" which in fact is a HORRIBLE LIE.

Everything you have is taking away to be "equally distributed" - in fact the Communists control the food, water, electricity, gas rations as you should sacrifices for the “common wellbeing” WHILE they are MOVING UP in mansions and AWAY from the “working class community” in closed neighborhoods living like kings do!

They are NOT ACCOUNTABLE to ANYONE – NOT even to God as their society is a PROGRESSIVE Sophisticated the most advanced SECULAR society (in their own words) – simply put – it is a GODLESS society.

People have the RIGHT to FREELY PRAISE the Communist Party BUT if you question their action, or bring in light facts in away way disagreeing with their propaganda – then the PUNISHMENT is necessary to "protect the common good"
If you stand your ground - the Communists KILL YOU and there is NO record of what happened with you.
Complete SUBMISSION is required under their control – a sort of Radical Islam!

This is NOT a joke – sure we can laugh at IF AND ONLY IF we are 100% DETERMINED to expose and STOP this IMPOSTOR!
Barack Hussein Obama is for America what Mohammed Atta was for the 9/11 attack – just a nice man no one had a clue!!!
He acted normally ALL the way through the Boston Airport and even when sitting down on his reserved seat waiting for the right moment to ACT.

YEARS of PREPARATION had paid off – we ALL watched the Twin Towers with pain and tears.
Using the American culture and system, American AIRPLANES, American fuel, American flying crew and American Passengers – the HIT was COMPLETE success we were ALL PERTIFIED.

Osama Bin Laden has a bright DIABOLIC mind – he PROMISSED us that “the NEXT hit will make 9/11 like a kindergarten play – the WHOLE planet will watch us STUPEFIED”.
I truly believe that this time OSAMA uses as agent OBAMA and his tool to achieve the MISSION will be the American VOTES.
That is the ONLY way OSAMA will get to replace the American Flag on the White House with the Islamic crescent flag – as OSAMA told us he will NOT rest until it will be done.

OBAMA and a humongous network work hard to PAVE his path to the White House – he ALREADY DISCARDED the American Flag from his airplane and put his HIDOUS BUBBLE on it.
Visit – see his airplane.

We were watching John McCain live and his roots – WHY Obama has NO PAST revealed?
When did he change his name from Berry Soetoro to Barack Hussein Obama? Why he is ANGRY if we call him Hussein? He is 7/8 Arab Kenyan (from Black African Slaves Traders linage that continued to sell Blacks long after America gave them freedom) , he is 1/2 White and only 1/16 Black African.
To be considered a Black descendent one must have at least 1/8 of his blood coming from Black ancestors. The Black Americans is his ticket to the White House to fulfill his mission - the Islamic to replace the old American flag.

“If the political wind turns ugly I will ALWAYS STAND with the MUSLIMS” –Barack Hussein Obama wrote in his memoir. WHY he wrote this?! Because he is a CHRISTIAN?!

Community organizer is a polite way of saying 'ward-heeler'.
