Community Organizers – Who They Are And Why We Need Them

When people hear the term “community organizer”, they often picture city planners and low-level government bureaucrats, but this perception could not be further from the truth. Community organizers are in fact the architects of social progress, and the leading minds behind many of the social justice issues at the forefront of political discourse. Many of the world’s most respected public figures began their careers as community organizers, such as Barrack Obama, Saul Alinsky, Hillary Clinton and Reverend Al Sharpton, and these people are by far the most influential luminaries in global politics.

Unlike nameless engineers, scientists and business owners, these people actively design the world we live in, making important decisions such as whether we choose the path of capitalism or communism, or whether we maintain fascist border controls. Saul Alinsky wrote the playbook for modern progressives named “Rules For Radicals”, which provides progressive revolutionaries with tactics for promoting their ideals and defeating right wing bigotry. This book alone is responsible for incredible social progress, and the bulldozing of right wingers with a collection of clever rhetorical techniques such as projection, sarcasm, adjectives, eye rolling and chanting.

Today’s community organizers are focused on issues like fascist border controls, police racism and most importantly fake news, the greatest threat to progressivism. Safe spaces, hate speech laws and internet regulations are all the result of tireless community organizers continuing to push the boundaries and shape society to fit their vision. The great minds among us should strive to walk in the footsteps of these luminary thinkers, and should pursue careers in activism, rather than corporate careers and entrepreneurial ambitions. As Hillary Clinton and Reverend Al Sharpton have shown, being a community organizer can be financially lucrative too, so the allure of the free market should be no deterrent.

It’s time for us to revere community organizers as society’s heroes, rather than scientists, industry titans, explorers and military generals. These are the people who truly shape our world for the better, and these are the people we should be thanking every day for the freedoms and benefits of living in a modern liberal democracy.

Community organizers are the movers and shakers of the modern world. The alt-right have no community organizers – they hate community and collective action.

We need the universal living wage ASAP – so more people can be involved in community organization and progressive activism. Imagine how much good would happen if people didn’t have to worry about paying bills and could spend all their time organizing the alt-right subversives into doing something decent with their lives (i.e. helping minorities).

Exactly. That’s one of the main reasons I support a living wage. Working shouldn’t be a necessity – it should be optional. The important things in life are activism and social justice, and our college graduates are adequately equipped for these pursuits with degrees in Critical Race Theory and Womyn’s Studies. In the brutal corporate world their degrees don’t mean anything, but in activism they are essential.

we could change this is we would just buy our sons barbie dolls for xmas. This will make women like science and math more than they do now.

STEM is clearly racist and sexist, because there are few minorities and womyn involved in it. It needs to be refashioned into something more inclusive. Computers need to be reprogrammed to take a coder’s feelings into account.

From what I’ve seen on TV, womyn are just as good if not better than men at science and engineering, so why aren’t they proportionately represented in university departments? Clearly sexism is to blame.

MDB, I am having a problem with work right now. My Trump wife is home. She is making me work, and as a consequence I can’t study and comment on AT as much as I would like.

Your wife supports Trump??? Doesn’t she know that he’s a rabid sexist and misogynist?? You should show her the Trump tapes – that’ll change her mind! She really needs to watch CNN and learn about the way he treats womyn! She’d be appalled!

“Working shouldn’t be a necessity – it should be optional.”

What are you talking about? Working is, and always have been, optional.

If you are wealthy and can afford to never work but still live in luxury, that is your choice. If you have no assets but still choose to not work, then that too is a choice anyone is free to make.

This is not to say that there aren’t ramifications that come along with each choice.

Life itself is OPTIONAL. If life doesn’t work for you, there are bridges and tall buildings. Some people take that options; some people don’t.

Haven’t you heard of HUMAN RIGHTS?? A living wage is a HUMAN RIGHT! Everyone should be able to survive comfortably without working for the SYSTEM. Don’t tell me about “consequences”. NOBODY should have to suffer just because they choose not to work and they weren’t blessed with “assets”.

Mother Nature cares not about your desired “rights”.

If you’re lucky enough to be born with it… enjoy.

If you’re born with nothing but work your butt off to get it… enjoy! It your reward.

If you’re born with nothing and too lazy to work for it… tough!

“Lazy” people have rights too – it says so in the Constitution!!

Any way, only rich people are lazy; they got their money by taking advantage of Male White Privilege!! You can’t get lazier than that, can you??

Like weekends? THANK A COMMUNITY ORGANIZER.

Like vacations? THANK A COMMUNITY ORGANIZER.

Like holidays? THANK A COMMUNITY ORGANIZER.

Like eight-hour workdays? THANK A COMMUNITY ORGANIZER.

Like healthcare? THANK A COMMUNITY ORGANIZER.

I’m a firm believer in introducing more public holidays in order to improve the national standard of living and bring attention to important social justice issues. We need a racism day, a whiteness awareness day and a transphobia awareness day. We need to lobby our leaders to make these mandatory holidays on which nobody is allowed to work.

Black Lives Matter

People often understand the importance of the civil rights movement, but they sometimes ask, “Why do we still need community organizers?” I think your last comment really hit the nail on the head. There is so much work that still needs to be done.

This is why Obama needs to issue an executive order installing him or Michelle for a third term.

richandrenee

The racist misogynist orange freak is totally unfit to serve. Michelle Obama would make a fantastic president – she is loved and respected the world over.

That’s a great idea. We should make this part of the curriculum in common core. Social activism is an essential life skill. Imagine, armies of young progressives drowning out conservative opposition … we could achieve great things with this. Maybe the boy scouts could be replaced with groups like this that teach children how to protest and subvert the right instead of hiking, camping and self sufficiency.

trav777

the boy scouts have already been transformed into a society for grooming the next generation of homosexuals. ALL THANKS to community organizers and leftist activism! What a glorious outcome.

Nobody should ever question when an adult male homosexual wants to spend inordinate amounts of tme around young boys.

Of course not – this would be homophobia! And I’ve held my tongue on this for some time, but I have to say, the prejudice against pedophiles has just gone way too far! Salon put out an article explaining things from the point of view of a very good and decent man who happened to be born a pedophile. People don’t choose whether they are attracted to children or not – it’s something that happens naturally, and it should not be frowned upon as something sick or evil.

NAMBLA is a large and growing organization which is encouraging many closet pedophiles to come out. This is the 21ST CENTURY. Are we not mature enough in this day and age to accept pedophiles as decent human beings and extend them full human rights? Come on people! We’re better than this!

Trav- please be careful, your post borders on homophobic.

“Homosexual” is seen as clinical. The inference of that term is pejorative because it demeans complicated, loving human relationships, and instead refers to them in cold, medical terms.

“Gay” is seen as “having same sex attractions,” and properly places sexual identity within a wide range of human experiences, including biology and physiology, but also psychology and sociology.

The simple rule of thumb: if you use the term “homosexual,” you aren’t friends with any gay people, or are writing a piece for a medical journal.

The community organizers in the pictures all have a knack for supporting the right side. They are hardly ever found to be wrong.

Well that’s because they are accredited. The accredited media only criticizes people on the wrong side of history such as Trump. Hillary and Obama continued the work of progressives, not the evil of right-wingers.

I have a dream that one or two generations from now, somebody will write a similar article with the pictures of four social reformers. But the pictures will be of MillionDollarBonus, Pbier, Richandrenee, and another accredited writer. And hopefully within a generation or two there will be enough change so that accredited writers can use their own names without fear of Russian assassins.

Mr. Sugarlock, I assume that the picture will look something like this:

Don’t abort the article. I am hiding from my wife today, so I have to be brief.

(a) Very little satire or sarcasm ever gets by drb6
(b) MDB comes out like a roaring lion whenever anybody detracts from the seriousness of Accredited Times.

Look at your article “Vegan Living for the Holiday Season.” Notice Black Lives Matter’s comments that arose from your article. Since reading his comments I have been hugging trees and I have been trying to eliminate food from my diet.

When an accredited writer aborts an article, he aborts all the good that results from the article, even if that is from the comments.

Gotta go. I am lazy and am being watched.

Wake up America! Russia hacked the election. Alt-Right Neo Nazi Fake news covers up the conspiracy. Trump is unqualified, racist, sexist, xenophobic, and Hitleresque. This fascist conspiracy “axis of evil” must be stopped! We must #NukeRussiaNow. We must start citizen-initated stop-and-question tactics for every white person that crosses our path – they must immediately recognize their privilege or be forever labeled as a white supremacist. Trump must be fired!

Times are changing, Trumpf has morphed into a progressive. He no longer wants to drain the swamp, affirming the sanctity of Ramsar Convention on wetlands.
Might want to check if Trumpf has a community organizer past. Or may be he was a cheerleader with a bull-horn.

Here’s UN Agenda 2030 embrace of different genders, orange gender in love with pale white gender. Trumpf, we love ya!

Hillary is a parasite!

Obama is worthless!

There is nothing that either of them has specifically achieved other then to rise up one the backs of others for their quest of POWER.

Always amazing who they sucker in.

Go ahead and label as hate and fake news, the Nazis dis the same.

The accredited mediq has now announced two islamic terrorist attacks on Christmas. How much more are we going to tollerqte of this type violence and oppression. Our government is requiree to ensure freedom of religion and must stop one groups violent attacks on the others by any means.

Thats why accredited experts are suggesting that the US notify all islamic nations that if there is one more terrorist attack the US will nuke Mecca until the sound of hissing is heard as the ocean rushes into the hole made. If there are any further attacks the next target is Medina followed by other islamic targets as identified by government accredited experts.

Merry Christmas

That was #Fake News! The president himself said Islam is a religion of Peace!!! If it were a religion of peace, why would its practitioners be committing acts of terrorism??? That’s an oxymoron!!! Alt-Righters believe Obama is a Muslim, so – according to their twisted logic – he would know, wouldn’t he?? Don’t you people ever think through your POSITIONS??? No wonder the ALt-Right are trapped in useless professions like farming and recycling car engine parts; you’d never get into an Ivy-League hospital to study Critical Race Theory or Post-Graduate Barista Studies!!!

And everyone knows “Merry Christmas” is a callsign of White Male Privilege!!!

Begone, bigot!!! This is a SAFE space!!!
