A wolf in sheep's clothing

EWTN recently showed the riveting documentary on Saul Alinsky, called A Wolf in Sheep's Clothing. Alinsky is known as the Father of Community Organizers, whose 1968 “Rules for Radicals” impacts the thinking of many in politics today, including and especially Hillary Clinton and President Barak Obama.

NCRegister's Joseph Pronechen reviews, calling it "A brilliant new EWTN film unmasks the man behind community organizing and what has greatly contributed to today's chaotic culture."

In case you are in need of a chill up the spine concering Alinsky, consider first his introduction to Rules for Radicals, where he wrote:
"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."

and his quote in Playboy Magazine just before his death:

ALINSKY: ... if there is an afterlife, and I have anything to say about it, I will unreservedly choose to go to hell.
ALINSKY: Hell would be heaven for me. All my life I've been with the have-nots. Over here, if you're a have-not, you're short of dough. If you're a have-not in hell, you're short of virtue. Once I get into hell, I'll start organizing the have-nots over there.
PLAYBOY: Why them?
ALINSKY: They're my kind of people.
