Beto O’Rourke has now entered the race for the 2020 Democratic nomination. One of his top advisers is so far to the left that she thinks Saul Alinsky, the writer of “Rules for Radcials,” was too much of a moderate. You couldn’t make this up.
The Washington Examiner reports:
Top Beto O’Rourke adviser is socialist who slammed Saul Alinsky as a moderate
An avowed socialist who blasted the leftist father of community organizing Saul Alinsky as a “paternalistic” moderate who “disparaged the idea of revolutionary change” is one of the top advisers to Beto O’Rourke in his 2020 White House bid.
Becky Bond, who was a senior aide to Sen. Bernie Sanders during his 2016 presidential campaign, has been floated as O’Rourke’s campaign manager. She was an organizer for his 2018 Senate run against Republican incumbent Sen. Ted Cruz.
Her prominent role wthe the former Texas congressman highlights the clash on the Left between Sanders, who leads in many early 2020 polls, and O’Rourke. She is understood to have had a falling out with Sanders at the end of 2016…
Rules for Revolutionaries was written by Bond and Zack Exley, who was also a senior Sanders adviser. Its title was a reference to the founder of left-wing community organizing Saul Alinsky, whose 1971 book Rules for Radicals inspired a generation of leftists.
The book criticized Alinksy for not being radical enough.”For all the things Alinsky got right, he was explicitly looking to outflank the populist movement of his time and provide an alternative that was more palatable to the liberal elite,” they wrote.
It seems like Beto has been taking this leftist’s advice on the campaign because he is already talking about packing the Supreme Court with liberal judges.
The Daily Caller reports:
BETO SAYS HE’S OPEN TO PACKING THE SUPREME COURT
Democratic presidential candidate Robert “Beto” O’Rourke said he is open to adding seats on the Supreme Court during a Thursday campaign stop.
Speaking at a coffee shop in Burlington, Iowa, O’Rourke, said adding six seats to the high court could curb political dysfunction.
“What if there were five justices selected by Democrats, five justices selected by Republicans, and those ten then picked five more justices independent of those who chose the first ten?” O’Rourke said, invoking a reform proposal that has gained currency in recent weeks. “I think that’s an idea that we should explore.”
“The Court should be able to reflect the diversity that we are composed of in this country,” he added. He also said imposing term limits would ensure a “regular rotation” of justices.
