The National Education Association (known as the NEA) is the most powerful teachers union in the country. The NEA is a big supporter of Barack Obama and of his trillion-dollar spending programs. The NEA is constantly training its members for political action so they will elect public officials who endorse NEA policies. It is significant that the NEA website is now recommending two books by the radical Chicago organizer Saul Alinsky. One is called Reveille for Radicals and the other Rules for Radicals. Saul Alinsky was a radical who achieved power by teaching people that we live in an unjust and oppressive society, and by training community organizers to lead mass demonstrations to take money and power away from those who have those things.
You can get a good idea of Alinsky's purposes by reading the dedication in his book Rules for Radicals. He dedicated this book to Lucifer, whom Alinsky identified as the first radical who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he won his own kingdom. Lucifer is quite a model for Alinsky-trained radicals.
Alinsky developed a list of Rules for Radicals, and the National Education Association has put them on the internet in the hope that liberals will use them to take power. Alinsky wrote that "The organizer's first job is to create the issues," then "rub raw the resentments of the people of the community; fan their hostilities," "stir up dissatisfaction," and provoke class resentment through creating public discontent and moral confusion.
Barack Obama was well trained in Saul Alinsky methods before he went into politics. It looks like Obama will be assisted by an army of Alinsky-trained activists in the National Education Association.
