BigGov targets USAction in witch hunt: Max "likely trained" Obama in "Alinsky method of organizing toward revolution"

From a November 8 post on BigGovernment.com
In November 2001, just 8 weeks after the devastating terrorist attacks on New York and DC, Steve Max delivered a speech to the progressive "USAction Delegation Assembly", on the topic of taking advantage of the new crisis as an opportunity to advance a progressive agenda.
The speech reads like Ward "little Eichmanns" Churchill and Rahm "never let a good crisis go to waste" Emanuel, all rolled up into one offensive Progressive rant.
Why does any of this matter? Because Steve Max, as a co-founder of Citizen Action (which later became USAction) and the Midwest Academy, is one of the people who likely trained SEIU's Andy Stern, Rahm Emanuel, and even President Bracak Obama, in the Alinsky method of organizing toward revolution.
President Barack Obama is deeply connected to Steve Max's Midwest (SDS-DSA) Academy and Citizen Action. Back in his Chicago days, then State Senator Obama was asked to deliver the Key Note address a fund-raising dinner for their sister organization, Citizen Action (Co-founder of the ACORN Working Families Party).
