PBS’ Moyers Says Saul Alinsky ‘A Good American’

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.”

  3. Mr. Moyers “assumes” that conservatives haven’t studied Alinsky’s life, read his books, and made their own decisions concerning his patriotism. Keep your friends close and your enemies, CLOSER!

  4. once a bizzatch ALWAYS a bizzatch…

    even before he wrote the despicable SMEAR speeches for LB’s Johnson

    in MY guts, i KNOW he’s a Fn Bastid

  5. Whoa Mr. Moyers, First of all Alinsky was a Communist/Socialist, definitions are subjective, and it has been properly documented. He dedicated his book, Rules for Radicals, to Lucifer and the Catholic Church never worked with him again after that. I suggest everyone read a History of Bill Moyers and understand that he is a Left Wing Progressive and twisting this story is par for the course in his agenda. What is his agenda here? He is trying to purposely make Newt Gingrich look bad by trying to assume you will think Saul Alinsky was an Angel. Mr. Moyers is now and always will be a controversial figure for the Left Wing Political System. Those are indeed some of the facts.
