These are only a few of the best response so for to the horrific bullshit attack on community organizers emanating from the sulfurous odors around the podium at the RNC.
These predate the GOP’s attacks but still worth seeing.
What indeed is a community organizer?
I don’t think we’ll ever see Palin working in East Palo Alto.
The Yellow Bike Project in Austin.
Superstar Community Organizer – Majora Carter – Speaking at TED on her work greening the South Bronx, the neighborhood where she grew up.
Resurrection of the Willie Mae’s Scotchouse, after the big flood.
And of course, the guy who’s trying to organize the American community Barack Hussein Obama.
If you are not happy with the way the GOP has chosen to attack the best people in our neighborhoods, schools and cities…please DONATE TODAY!
Tell the nasties at the GOP, you’re done with the same old stuff. If you don’t have money or a job – or even if you do… sign up to help make calls, talk to people – get a taste of community organizing yourself. Go to the site now. The campaign makes it easy as pie to get involved – and to organize your community.
Once you start it’s hard to stop. Not only is it the right thing to do, it feels amazing to connect your life with the lives of people around you to make the changes you all want and need to see. All you need to be is open and willing to help. THIS is what Obama is talking about when he says “be the change you want to see in the world.” That’s how Gandhi put it – and you know how much responsibility he handled.
And what’s this business about “We are the ones we’ve been waiting for.” I don’t know why those in the Grand OLD Party have such a hard time understanding that concept. It seems to jibe pretty well with that whole ‘responsibility’ thing, you flap your jaws about all the time. Then again, I’ve noticed these GOP speech writers don’t use language like normal people.
They turn good things to salt, and poison into profit.
You know what Miss Tubman said:
If you hear the dogs, keep going.
If you see the torches in the woods, keep going.
If they’re shouting after you, keep going.
Don’t ever stop. Keep going.
If you want a taste of freedom, keep going.
Even in the darkest of moments, ordinary Americans have found the faith to keep going.
Thanks for the reminder Hilary. And thanks for organizing those 18 million cracks!
And Rudy… I can’t find a community in NYC that liked ya, sure as hell not the firemen.
What would you know about community organizing in the first place?
Not a damn thing.
And Sarah, just because you ain’t gettin’ paid, doesn’t mean you don’t have any ‘responsibility.’
After I graduated from UC Berkeley I spent four years teaching adults with disabilities how to use technology. My guess is you would have slashed that program, like you did in your state.
Like someone in a video above said,
Jesus was a community organizer, Pontius Pilate, George W. Bush and Sarah Palin are governors.
And don’t get it twisted. Barack never compared himself to Jesus.
You just stepped in a giant national moose pie of your own making. As YOU said being the Mayor of Wasilla population 5000+ voted in by about 600 people – It’s not rocket science.
