Obama, A Left-wing Alinsky Method Product of Catholic Charities!

Catholic money funded Obama's leftwing activism in Chicago:

Barak Obama - was lead organizer in Chicago for the Developing Communities Project, it received a $40,000 Catholic Campaign for Human Development grant in 1985 and a $33,000 grant in 1986.

While he was in Chicago Obama was trained by the top Alinskyian organizers. One mentor was the ex-Jesuit, Greg Galuzzo, lead organizer for Gamaliel. The Developing Communities Project operated under the Gamaliel Foundation, a network of Alinskyian organizations that receive 4-5% of all Catholic Campaign for Human Development grants each year.

One of the biggest abuses in our culture today is the left-wing destruction of honest and honorable charity foundations, by turning them into vehicles for agitation and political thuggery. I am gratified that the problem has been identified and diagnosed wrt CCHD, but disturbed that this is not considered a huge scandal:
Relatively little from the Catholic Campaign for Human Development collection goes to "help the poor." Alinskyian networks are political. They work closely with politicians - such as Obama - and other organizations that are fighting for abortion and homosexual "rights." ACORN's "People's Platform" has nothing in common with Catholic social justice teaching and everything in common with socialism.

ACORN is a political thuggery group. Left-wing community activists were and are not in it for the good of the people, but in it for political power. In the end, Obama's leftwing activism was all about his own springboard into Chicago politics. Nobody was really helped by it but him. But the true insult here is how Catholic congregations of God-fearing people are brow-beaten into doing a 'good deed' for charity by contributing via CCHD to such awful and misguided causes that they would NEVER support directly had they known of the diversion.

I found out when the United Way cut off support of Boy Scouts how lock-step they were with politically-correct powers that be, and had to support Boy Scouts directly. Goodbye United Way (they curiously fell on hard times after this in many places). Now we see that UCCB and CCHD CANNOT be trusted: "It would be fine if Catholics were informed about the uses for its money by the USCCB but sad fact is that most Catholics are ignorant of what's been going on at that august body. Soon it will all come crashing down." As a Catholic, I am very distrubed by how charity dollars are diverted for politics, and semi-political activities, often politics of the worst sort no less. I will not contribute to national catholic charities again. Direct funding of mobile loaves and fishes in my parish will be the path. If I can see what they are doing, I know they can't steal it for political groups.

Obama served on two 'charitable' foundations, one of which engaged in anti-2nd amendment advocacy and another other which funded palestinian extremists among other political groups. Then there is a third 'charitable grant' from Annenberg, where he was engaged in radical education ideas with Bill Ayers (the Weather Underground/terrorist guy). $100 million spent for a failed radical left idea. These are foundations that get tax-exempt status because they are supposed to be do-gooders. Its appalling - a huge network devoted solely to political agitation of USA to the left, and Obama was in the middle of it all.

What we are seeing is a huge, big, titanic, scandal. (Not about Obama but about the foundations.) Billions of dollars that are funnelled to leftwing causes and political activism in the name of doing good. they are not doing good, they are undermining the country. Alinskyism has taken over the institutions of learning, media, and charity, and in the process has destroyed these institutions and their real core mission.

Please fight the power, folks, and expose these abuses.
