A Response to Ms. Carroll

A Response to Ms. Carroll

Just when I thought I was back on earth I read Ms. Susan Carroll’s letter in the October 10, 2013 edition of this paper. I normally wouldn’t respond to such a cacophony of nonsense but as Ms. Carroll addresses me personally, not to respond would have been disrespectful.

Ms. Carroll states that I am,” one who uses Alinsky’s rule 5 and 12 expertly”. My first question was who the hell is Alinsky? (Actually I do remember some of Saul Alinsky`s writings which I consider a bunch of hogwash; strange as it seems, Hillary Clinton wrote her college thesis on his works (“Rules for Radicals”).

Here is the irony: his book is now the number one seller among conservatives – go figure.

I’m still trying to figure out what Ms. Carroll’s point is. If she is really interested in all this theoretical hogwash, I have a few suggestions for books she might want to read.

“Real Conspiracy Theories; Past and Present”, Part #1 – by Berit Kjos. Part #2 will really light Ms. Carroll’s fire with such dillies as, “Treason in the Church” or “Trading Truth for a Social Gospel”.

I’m still trying to figure out what Ms. Carroll’s point is.

She rambles on. “Benghazi equates to treason, someone gave the order to stand down and watch Americans die. There is a reason they were left to die, what needs to be hidden? Extortion 17 (death of Seal Team 6) equals treason. Shipping money and arms to Syrian rebels equals treason”. If someone can figure out what that rant was all about, I would sincerely like to know.

And there is more!

Next quote,” We are supporting terrorists that have cut out hearts and livers and eat them, with an electric saw, murder and pillage Christians or anyone opposed to their radical agenda.”.Cut people up with a chainsaw? Isn’t this from the Halloween movie with Freddy Kruger? Maybe he had on an Obama mask.
