Joseph Farah uses his May 7 WorldNetDailiy column to argue that Satan was the first leftist, citing as evidence Saul Alinsky's "over-the-shoulder acknowledgment" to Lucifer as "the very first radical" in his book "Rules for Radicals." Farah then laments that he can't "string up" Alinsky:
Lucifer was the first radical, the first rebel, the first opponent of God’s order. And even a pedigreed lefty like Alinsky agreed they were kindred spirits.
It may be too late to string up Alinsky. It may be too late to string up the agitators of the French Revolution. It may be too late to string up Karl Marx or Josef Stalin or Adolf Hitler (another lefty, by the way) or V.I. Lenin or Mao.
Farah doesn't identify any offense Alinsky committed that would require him to be "strung up." Organizing powerless people to work in their best interests? That's not a crime, let along anything akin to what Hitler or Stalin did.
Which means Farah wants to "string up" Alinsky for disagreeing with him. That's not a crime either, however much Farah might want it to be.
