Were Founders of the United States "Community Organizers"?

Actress Laura Linney tried to prop up Barack Obama by diminishing the role of our Founding Fathers with her sly remark at the Emmy Awards. Didn't she watch the made-for-TV movie she starred in?

Linney, who played Adams' wife and confidante Abigail, could not resist a political barb after collecting her prize.

Linney said the mini-series was a tribute to "the great community organizers that helped form our country", a clear reference to Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama, a former community organizer.

Later, Linney took aim at Republican critics of Obama who have mocked his former work as a community organizer.

"I just have the most tremendous respect for anyone who serves their community," Linney said. "Our founding fathers were community organizers. And that is fact to me. And I feel that has been disparaged.

    "Gentlemen, from this day forward, it is imperative that we should all hang together.....or it is most assured that we will all hang seperately."
    "Treason is an excuse, invented by the winners, to hang the losers."

    "Community Organizers" don't face the risk of certain death in the face of insurmountable odds to attain the freedoms that all men deserve.......Patriots and Revolutionaries do.

    There is only one man in this campaign who has faced the loss of life when asked...."Just how much do you love your country, and would you ever like to see it again?"

    Enough said.

Those are the same people who Obama works for, and you want to compare him to Kennedy? who died fighting against the globalist elite? Brilliant. If you really are a marine you should be shouting your ass off about Obama talking to the Iraqi leadership, convincing them not to negotiate troop withdraw so HE can benefit from it. the man is a loser, and quite frankly, I don't know what planet his supporters live on. Hows that? a little more cohesive than "i bet he's accomplished more." ya, he's a US senator with all kinds of radical friends, running for the Whitehouse, without even turning in an official copy of his birth certificate. I'm impressed. and he supports Fascist policies, and wants to National-Socialize not only the rest of what's left of the free market, but the world as well. by the way, National-Socialism... ring a bell? If not, you may be interested to know that it is where the Nazi party came from. It's Fascism, it's not freedom! Are these complete enough sentences for you? I don't want to argue with you, we're on the same team here, the American People, but you gotta be kidding me that you actually support this guy, or even McCain...

    As I understand it, the roll of a community organizer is to, well, organize a community to take action on issues that their government, whether national or local, is not. A successful revolution without a central government would take one heck of an organized community, so I'm gonna say yes, our founding fathers were indeed, in some capacity, community organizers. Although the actual organizing of the community was probably left to a lot of other people we've never heard of.

    I have to say that the answer options to this poll have little to do with the question. The question is about the founding fathers and the answers are about Obama and 25,000 revolutionaries. What's with that, T?

    Laura Linney seems to have gotten through Part I of American History in college by taking "the horizontal final." Seriously, do we have to revisit the difference between someone who PLAYS a statesman (or the wife of a statesman) and actual people capable of impacting human events? As an actress or an historian, Laura Linney is a superb fast-food cook. Let's leave it at that.

    This is a biased question. What this country needs is a community organizer. If people haven't noticed, other countries are "organizing" and are becoming way more influential than any one nation should be. But then again, that was once America's position.

    Really? Under Mahmoud Ahmadinejhad, Iran has become so much more prosperous and peaceful (and in case you haven't been keeping up with world events, that's sarcasm). And Vladimir Putin has done a wonderful job of "organizing" Russia from a disorganized democracy back up into a militaristic threat to world peace. Hugo Chavez has put a stake right through the heart of democracy in Venezuela, all to cheers and applause from the likes of Bill Moyers.

    And Barack Obama himself traveled to Kenya to campaign for that well-known Islamist community organizer Raila Odinga, who protested his loss in that country's recent Presidential election by ordering sectarian riots in which over 700 Kenyan Christians were murdered. That got him a "power-sharing deal" in Kenya. Sure nice how that "community organizing" thing works, huh?

    And of course, there's a clear-cut difference between "community organizing" the way Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton practice it and extortion - those two gentlemen so far have managed to avoid Federal prosecution here for doing what in other countries would get them thrown under the jail.

    No, America was never run by the slime of its streets, and God willing it'll stay that way.

    You completely missed the point of my post. I said the countries are organizing. I didn't say you had to like their organization or their aims, but he fact is...they're organizing. In order to even be a threat, they had to organize. The terrorists organize. Perhaps....if the US had been more organized and had credible intelligence....or reviewed the credible intelligence.....we wouldn't be talking about this. But it's obvious you don't comprehend very well.

    yeap, just like Obama the magic negro! a community organizer! our country was founded by a group of them, they all got together and like Obama they read Saul Alinsky's book ......and did this........

    Rules for Radicals -- 1971 Book by Saul Alinsky
    "Lest we forget at least an over-the-shoulder acknowledgment to the very first radical: from all our legends, mythology, and history (and who is to know where mythology leaves off and history begins -- or which is which), the first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom -- Lucifer."

    This is important because on the very same page we find this:

    Thirteen years after Alinsky died, some of his former students hired Barack Obama to a $13,000 a year job as a community organizer in South Chicago. In a few years he became very proficient in the Alinsky Method of community organizing and became an instructor and teacher of the Alinsky Method to other community organizers

    So after years of community organizing they all met in Philly PA and wrote down some stuff on paper and shazam! America was born!! It true... it'e true I read all about it on moveon.org

    It's a miracle!

    From being called "stupid white men" by that fat turd of a community organizer Michael Moore, and every idiot who breathes heavily in the theater while watching his movies, the Founding Fathers have been rehabilitated to "community organizers" by the national corps of mindless hypocrites - so Barack Obama could be compared favorably to them.

    One more reason to drop HBO (where Linney's soporific performance aired) from my satellite package, which I did a LONG time ago.

    You know, I read some of these before I voted. Some of you people are nuts. If you think so little of the founding fathers of this country, and think it is such a bad place. Please by all means leave. I am sure there is some other country that would love to have you. Cuba might be a good place to start, or even Iran. I am sure they would be glad to let you speak your mind the way you are able to in this country.

    Your statement is so wrong that it hurts to respond.

    Jesus Christ was our Saviour and any other comparison is disgraceful. Obama is a fake and chamelion.

    Pontius Pilot was a governor who tried to do the right thing and release Christ but the mob chose Barabas, the murder. Remind you of anything ? The brain-dead, kool-ade drinking mob choosing Osama, the destroyer of all we hold dear (if elected) ? The juxtaposition of Obama as Jesus and Pontius as Palin is a disgrace if only because you and Susan Saradon have no idea what you are talking about. Try reading The Bible and you would know that and probably have a new view of the world.
