Community Organizer FAQ
Posted by Frank J. at 10:36 AM | View blog reactions | Comments (54)

Q. What's a community organizer?
A. It's someone who organizes a community.

Q. And communities need organizing?
A. You think they organize themselves?

Q. I've lived in plenty of communities, and I don't remember any organizers.
A. The best community organizers seek no credit.

Q. Barack Obama seeks credit.
A. And the even better ones seek lots of credit!

Q. I still don't understand what a community organizer is supposed to do.
A. The important job of organizing the community.

Q. Like decide the layout plans of communities?
A. No. That's the job of the city and the builders.

Q. So what is the community organizer organizing?
A. Not the buildings, but the actual community.

Q. To do what?
A. To be organized!

Q. Um... so does he alphabetize the community?
A. More often he uses color coding.

Q. And someone gets paid for this?
A. It's a very important job.

Q. I still don't understand what the hell it is.
A. Maybe that's because it's such a complex occupation.

Q. Or maybe because it's a BS job Barack Obama made up.
A. It's not made up. There's even a Wikipedia article on community organizing. Here's the opening paragraph:

Community organizing is a process by which people are brought together to act in common self-interest. While organizing describes any activity involving people interacting with one another in a formal manner, much community organizing is in the pursuit of a common agenda. Many groups seek populist goals and the ideal of participatory democracy. Community organizers create social movements by building a base of concerned people, mobilizing these community members to act, and developing leadership from and relationships among the people involved.

Q. Huh?
A. See, it's very complicated and important.

Q. If it takes that many words to describe and it's still not clear what it is, I'm pretty sure it's a BS job.
A. Know what? Why don't you rot in your disorganized community you @#$%ing caveman.

Q. And who are the idiots paying these people salaries?
A. It's the community! They want this! Without the organizing there would be riots and cannibalism!

Q. I'm pretty sure we'll be fine organizing ourselves.
A. You stupid, gun-toting redneck, this is why people like us don't even bother trying to talk to people like you. You belittle important things you don't understand while clinging to your book about the invisible sky fairy!

Q. It's a made up job.
A. One day Barack Obama will force all your ignorant communities to be organized! Then you'll get your comeuppance! All of you who laughed at him, we'll see if you're laughing then!

Q. I'm pretty sure I will be laughing. I'll actually make a point of walking up to the community organizer and laughing at him because he wasn't able to get a real job.
A. Then you're just mean.

Q. Mean and working an actual job I can explain to others.
A. Hillbilly.
