PBS’ Moyers Says Saul Alinsky ‘a Good American’

Hat Tip: BB

Bill Moyers Essay: Newt’s Obesession with Saul Alinsky from BillMoyers.com on Vimeo.


Bill Moyers used his Friday night PBS show to defend community organizing icon Saul Alinsky from Newt Gingrich’s recent attacks. Alinsky’s 1971 book “Rules for Radicals,” which was dedicated to Lucifer, popularized many organizing tactics.

Moyers quipped “Maybe that’s why Newt Gingrich has been slandering Alinsky’s name,” Moyers said. “Maybe he’s afraid. Afraid the very white folks he’s been rousing to a frenzy will discover who Saul Alinsky really was. A patriot, in a long line of patriots, who scorned the malignant narcissism of duplicitous politicians and taught every day Americans to think for themselves and to fight together for a better life. That’s the American way, and any good historian would know it.”


  1. Such a waist of tax payer money!

    • Saul Alinsky is a communist. America is a democratic country. To HELL with Alinsky and the rest of you that work to destroy my country America.

    • Some call his work “Rules for Psychopaths,” they are totally amoral end justifies the means with the goal of stealing power and wealth from those who earned it and give it to the takers. Why play the game fairly when you can just be a looter and take it?

  2. To hell with you moyers. What a dumbass you have become.

  3. Well, I guess according to Moyers, Hitler was a good American too, he was just a lousy German. WHy have so many of these fools sold out to lucifer? Amazing isn’t it? Well, I always wondered how the anti-christ would take over with so many people knowing he was coming…now I know….goodbye America.

  4. How in the world someone so well educated try to slant something like this. Alinsky was an avowed Communist and it is a fact and it is documented. So by deduction is it not reasonable to come to the conclusion that Moyers himself is a Communist? I think so but he will just not admit it. His message is always the same. He has nothing but contempt for Conservatives.
