Famous Last Words

The day of the Lord came like a thief in the night: Saul Alinsky.

The day of the Lord came like a thief in the night: Saul Alinsky.

From Faggotpedia, an excerpt of the interview Saul Alinsky gave to Playboy in 1972.

ALINSKY: … if there is an afterlife, and I have anything to say about it, I will unreservedly choose to go to hell.
PLAYBOY: Why?
ALINSKY: Hell would be heaven for me. All my life I’ve been with the have-nots. Over here, if you’re a have-not, you’re short of dough. If you’re a have-not in hell, you’re short of virtue. Once I get into hell, I’ll start organizing the have-nots over there.
PLAYBOY: Why them?
ALINSKY: They’re my kind of people.

Alinsky died two months after this interview, “of a sudden, massive heart attack […], on a street corner”.

It seems very probable his wish was granted “unreservedly”.

As they say in these cases: “if you’re happy, I’m happy”.

  1. Saul, are you really happy that you got your wish? If you’re happy and you know it, clap your hands! Bwahaha!
