Hillary’s mentors: Saul Alinsky and Senator Robert Byrd (D) WV

A look at Hillary Clinton’s mentors

8/26/16 – In light of the, shall we say, interesting things Ms. Clinton is promulgating now, I felt a need to post a couple of mementos from Ms. Clinton’s life.  If you have believed Hillary Clinton, as I did once long ago, then you need to understand you are being lied to!  These are not the kinds of lies that are difficult to discern with even a modicum of effort of digging into facts and history.  Please carefully consider what you see here and the references.  Deception is running at an all time high.  And, the stakes are high as well.

Let’s look at two of Hillary Clinton’s stated mentors.


Daily Caller wrote of Byrd in June of 2010 after his death:

Byrd joined the Klan at the ripe young age of 24 — hardly a young’un by today’s standards, much less those of 1944, when Byrd refused to join the military because he might have to serve alongside “race mongrels, a throwback to the blackest specimen from the wilds,” according to a letter Byrd wrote to Sen. Theodore Bilbo at the height of World War II.

For your reading pleasure, a collection of obituary snow jobs:

From the 11th paragraph of the LA Times’ Byrd obituary: “Byrd was not always a champion of liberal causes. He had come of age as a member of the Ku Klux Klan and cast a “no” vote on the landmark Civil Rights Act of 1964 that prohibited discrimination against African Americans and others. He later renounced his actions in both cases and called his membership in the KKK ‘the worst mistake of my life.’”

ABC News noted that “despite his successful political track record, the Senate’s senior Democrat was no stranger to controversy and was once a member of the Ku Klux Klan,” as if calling for the extermination of dark-skinned peoples (as well as Jews, Catholics, and gays) was no more stirring a gaffe than Gary Hart’s monkey business.

MSNBC.com reported that “Byrd’s success on the national stage came despite a complicated history on racial matters. As a young man, we was a member of the Ku Klux Klan for a brief period, and he joined Southern Democrats in an unsuccessful filibuster against the landmark 1964 Civil Rights.” (The Ku Klux Klan no doubt objects to being called complicated, and has held since Day 1 one that there is nothing wishy-washy about castrations, lynchings or burning folks alive.)

CNN also gave Byrd a pass on his association with the early 20th-century homegrown terrorist movement, writing in the 20th paragraph of Byrd’s obituary that “He blamed ‘that Southern atmosphere in which I grew up, with all of its prejudices and its feelings,’ for his opposition to equal rights, which included joining the [domestic terrorist outfit] Ku Klux Klan in the 1940s.”

Of all the outlets that eulogized Byrd, only the Hill bothered to mention that a “young” Byrd not only joined the KKK, but also led his local chapter.

No single obituary of Byrd mentioned his 2001 use of the term “white nigger,” an early 20th-century anachronism that Byrd employed not once, but twice during an interview with Tony Snow.

From WikiPedia:
Byrd joined with Democratic senators to filibuster the Civil Rights Act of 1964,[32] personally filibustering the bill for 14 hours, a move he later said he regretted.[33] Despite an 83-day filibuster in the Senate, both parties in Congress voted overwhelmingly in favor of the Act, and President Johnson signed the bill into law.[34] Byrd also opposed the Voting Rights Act of 1965 but voted for the Civil Rights Act of 1968. In 2005, Byrd told The Washington Post that his membership in the Baptist church led to a change in his views. In the opinion of one reviewer, Byrd, like other Southern and border-state Democrats, came to realize that he would have to temper “his blatantly segregationist views” and move to the Democratic Party mainstream if he wanted to play a role nationally.[13]


The Washington Post, June 2005:

In the early 1940s, a politically ambitious butcher from West Virginia named Bob Byrd recruited 150 of his friends and associates to form a chapter of the Ku Klux Klan. After Byrd had collected the $10 joining fee and $3 charge for a robe and hood from every applicant, the “Grand Dragon” for the mid-Atlantic states came down to tiny Crab Orchard, W.Va., to officially organize the chapter.

Regarding a recent tome by Senator Byrd, the Post said:

He does not acknowledge the full length of time he spent as a Klan organizer and advocate. Nor does he make any mention of a particularly incendiary letter he wrote in 1945 complaining about efforts to integrate the military.

Returning to West Virginia after World War II ended in 1945, he launched his political career, but not before writing another letter, to one of the Senate’s most notorious segregationists, Theodore Bilbo (D-Miss.), complaining about the Truman administration’s efforts to integrate the military.

Byrd said in the Dec. 11, 1945, letter — which would not become public for 42 more years with the publication of a book on blacks in the military during World War II by author Graham Smith — that he would never fight in the armed forces “with a Negro by my side.” Byrd added that, “Rather I should die a thousand times, and see old Glory trampled in the dirt never to rise again, than to see this beloved land of ours become degraded by race mongrels.”

Byrd won the primary, but during the general election campaign, Byrd’s GOP opponent uncovered a letter Byrd had handwritten to Green, the KKK Imperial Wizard, recommending a friend as a Kleagle and urging promotion of the Klan throughout the country. The letter was dated 1946 — long after the time Byrd claimed he had lost interest in the Klan. “The Klan is needed today as never before, and I am anxious to see its rebirth here in West Virginia,” Byrd wrote, according to newspaper accounts of that period. Byrd makes no mention of the letter in his new book.

Byrd’s Klan past became an issue again when he joined with other southern Democrats to oppose the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Byrd filibustered the bill for more than 14 hours as he argued that it abrogated principles of federalism. He criticized most anti-poverty programs except for food stamps. And in 1967, he voted against the nomination of Thurgood Marshall, the first black appointed to the Supreme Court.



While at Wellesley, Hillary Clinton wrote her thesis on Alinsky and his methods, she had an ongoing relationship with him, corresponded with him, and referred to him as her mentor.  He authored, Rules for Radicals, a satanic, slithering twisted work if there ever was one, which became a primer for far left radicals and outlined methods used by modern politics including the NWO, of which Ms. Clinton is a part.  With even elementary knowledge of Biblical texts and principles one can see in Rules for Radicals perversion peppered with some truth.

In the first pages of Rules for Radicals, Mr. Alinsky dedicates his book to Lucifer:

Lest we forget at least an over-the-shoulder acknowledgment to the very first radical: from all our legends, mythology, and history (and who is to know where mythology leaves off and history begins—or which is which), 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.


A line from his book: “Life is a corrupting process…he who fears corruption fears life.”  Sounds like Lucifer to me.

We can certainly see Ms. Clinton using one of Mr. Alinsky’s rules – irrational ridicule:  “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon. There is no defense. It’s irrational. It’s infuriating. It also works as a key pressure point to force the enemy into concessions.”

Alinsky also preached the use of: “artificially stimulated conflict”.  Sound familiar?

Town Hall wrote of him:

Saul Alinsky was a brilliant man. Evil, but brilliant. Unfortunately, whether we like it or not, everyone on the Left from the President on down is playing by his rules in the political arena. Not all liberals have read his book or know his name, but his tactics have become universal.

The Free Beacon wrote of the relationship between Clinton and Alinsky:

Clinton met with Alinsky several times in 1968 while writing a Wellesley college thesis about his theory of community organizing.

Clinton’s relationship with Alinsky, and her support for his philosophy, continued for several years after she entered Yale law school in 1969, two letters obtained by the Washington Free Beacon show.

The letters obtained by the Free Beacon are part of the archives for the Industrial Areas Foundation, a training center for community organizers founded by Alinsky, which are housed at the University of Texas at Austin.

The letters also suggest that Alinsky, who died in 1972, had a deeper influence on Clinton’s early political views than previously known.

A 23-year-old Hillary Clinton was living in Berkeley, California, in the summer of 1971. She was interning at the left-wing law firm Treuhaft, Walker and Burnstein, known for its radical politics and a client roster that included Black Panthers and other militants.

On July 8, 1971, Clinton reached out to Alinsky, then 62, in a letter sent via airmail, paid for with stamps featuring Franklin Delano Roosevelt, and marked “Personal.”

The Political Insider wrote:
His efforts- which were just as evil as they were brilliant- were essential to the growth of the political left, including Marxism


We stand at a crossroads and a choice must be made.  This is a historic season during which we will crumble into the one world government trash can under Hillary’s dictatorship, or we rip the band-aid off and work to rebuild the framework of our republic.  We must stay unified in purpose toward freedom and liberty.

Pray for our country.  Pray for discernment as the deception swirls around our heads like dust devils.  Pray for the US to have genuine revival and a sincere turning towards Yeshua Jesus.

Just because G_d sees the end and the beginning equally, knowing what our tomorrows will be, is not an excuse to do nothing, to be fatalistic, to be bystanders as life walks by.  There is no biblical support for that kind of attitude.  We are commanded to stay alert, to watch, to take care to not be deceived, to put on our spiritual armor, to stand and face the enemy, to take back the territory from the enemy, to establish G_dly government, to care for the poor, the orphan and the widow, and to minister the gospel of Yeshua Jesus to everyone.  And, ultimately, to prepare for His coming, knowing that our hope lies not in the things of this earth but in eternity with Him.
