Alinsky's rules for radicals of all stripes. Today, we'll invoke rule # 4.

This story out of the Massachusetts legislature a couple of weeks back is nothing world-changing, but it's humorous, heartening, and could be a good lesson for some of you would-be conservative radicals out there. Yes, indeed you CAN be a radical though you are a conservative. Actually, being a real conservative MAKES YOU a radical in this time of Peak Stupidity.

You can see those rules up there at the top. I've never wanted to get into the sick minds of the ctrl-left, Commies, and other scum of that sort, so I don't read this stuff. It's just that, as mentioned at the end of our 6-part series There's Battle Lines Being Drawn. (Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5, and Part 6), getting our way will involve standing up and sticking together, not necessarily requiring Alinsky's rules.

Rule # 4 though, "Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.", does apply to the actions of one Republican (yes, there's at least one) MA State-house member, as documented by a sympathetic radio talk show host. The law being voted on was a silly one about allowing various flavors of gender as options on one's Mass driver's license. It's not the bureaucracy of it, or any real worries about this that are the problem. The problem with deals like this is that they are the ctrl-left's way of demonstrating that conservatives have no say in the world and must put up with the stupidest shit, "because we say so." They want to rub it in your face. That's how confident the ctrl-left is at this point in their work of destroying American society.

The writer of this LifeSiteNews article is a guy named Calvin Freiburger. At his first description of the Massachusetts government, he sounds hard-left, but it's not the case. He does a nice fair job with this story:
BOSTON, August 16, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – Legislation to add a “Gender X” option to driver’s license should have been a straightforward task in the far-left state of Massachusetts, but one Republican lawmaker managed to derail the bill by taking transgender ideology to its furthest extreme.

The state Senate voted in June to approve the measure, which would have also extended the option to learner’s permits and state identification cards. No documentation would have been required to prove an applicant is neither male nor female. “It’s a milestone, bill sponsor Sen. Karen Spilka, a Democrat, said at the time.

Despite the state House of Representatives being just as heavily Democratic as the Senate, however, it never got the chance to send the bill to liberal Republican Gov. Charlie Baker’s desk.
Turning a milestone into a millstone - that should be one of Peak Stupidity's rules for Antistu radicals, with a hat-tip to radio host Howie Carr and the good MA-senator Jim Lyons, of course. You see, it turns out there are 70-odd flavors of genders, more than twice the number of Baskin-Robbins ice cream flavors, and more than a full-spectrum box of Crayola crayons (you know, the ones that used to have little crayon sharpeners built in - now that was cool!) This Mass-congressman, Mr. Lyons is a smart cookie, and seems to have taken to heart, or come up with independently, Rule # 4 above. Let's give these D-ctrl-left assholes what they want, good and hard. We need to put all of these 70-odd genders in the bill... uhhh, but it may take a while. ;-}
“Since all Democrats must admit that the number of genders is endless, how dare the commonwealth lump all the new genders together as ‘Gender X’?” Carr writes, summarizing Lyons’ facetious reasoning. “Every gender, he declared, must be listed on Massachusetts driver’s licenses! That was Lyons’ non-negotiable demand. No justice, no peace.”

Lyons told Carr he settled on demanding recognition for 73 different “genders,” as that was the number he reached by tallying the number of custom gender options Facebook offers.

Alinsky, you magnificent bastard, I READ YOUR BOOK!

Knowing that his liberal colleagues couldn’t rule any of the genders out of order without undermining the logic of transgender ideology, Lyons introduced each as a separate amendment to the bill the evening of July 31, each requiring 10 minutes of debate and three minutes to vote on.

“Number 6 added as a gender ‘cis.’ Amendment 9 — cis female, 13 — cis woman, 14 — cisgender female, 18 — cisgender woman,” Carr details. “Amendment 21 — gender fluid, 22 gender non-conforming, 23 gender questioning, 25 gender variant, 26 genderqueer.”

Six hours in Lyons had only filed 35 of the amendments, at which point House leadership realized he was running out the clock and there wasn’t enough time before the midnight deadline to pass both the bill and the other legislation on the docket. At 10:45 p.m., they withdrew the bill.
Hahaha, I LOLed at the "6 hours in" part, for some reason. The "running out the clock" part is humorous too, but that is standard practice. These places of lawmaking are not quite what you had imagined upon finishing your Citizenship-in-the-nation merit badge.
“By now, the few remaining sane Democrats in the Legislature realized that Lyons had done them a solid, sparing them from being recorded on a roll call vote on whether to recognize the genders of pangender, polygender and cisgender,” Carr wrote, “not to mention intersex, intersex man, intersex woman and intersex person.”
LOL, AGAIN! I really like this guy Howie Carr too. Hell, that was 1/2 the article already, but one more piece:
"One way or another, progressivism is always a death sentence. So we may as well turn it around and use it on its perpetrators whenever we get the chance,” Conservative Review’s Steve Deace said of the incident. “That doesn’t mean becoming like them, but understanding their con and endlessly harassing them with its real-world applications.”
Yep, "becoming like them" is not necessary. However, we just can't all be Mr. Pat Buchanans (bless his heart) as far as civility goes. The other side does not play along.

Please read the whole article, if you've got a couple of minutes. It will lift your spirits.
