Skip to comments.Obama's ACORN: A Corrupt Organization of Revolutionary Nuts
Posted on 10/10/2008 12:36:41 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
If you believe Crystal Gail Mangum, the ex-convict stripper still falsely posing as a gang rape victim, you probably believe that the innocuously named ACORN (the acronym for Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now) is a fine association honorably pursuing laudable goals.
Mangum is a con artist still lying outrageously and ACORN is a sinister association out to take over America by putting politicians of its choosing, especially Barack Hussein Obama, Jr., in power, by doing whatever it takes, despite the law.
ACORN is dangerous.
Bowing to ACORN's political power and thuggish tactics resulted in many of the bad loans that resulted in the current financial crisis and Congressional Democrats blocking the reform and Treasury Department oversight of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac that Republicans, led by President Bush and Senator McCain, had urged.
ACORN is hypocritical.
Wikipedia: "ACORN filed a lawsuit in California seeking to exempt itself from the state's minimum wage of $4.25 per hour in 1995. ACORN alleged in its complaint that 'its workers, if paid the minimum wage, will be less empathetic with ACORN's low and moderate income constituency and will therefore be less effective advocates.' The court denied ACORN's petition; the denial was sustained on appeal."
And ACORN is secretive about its scandals!
Wikipedia: "Dale Rathke, the brother of ACORN's founder Wade Rathke, was found to have embezzled $948,607.50 from the group and affiliated charitable organizations in 1999 and 2000. ACORN executives did not inform the board or law enforcement, but signed an enforceable restitution agreement with the Rathke family to repay the amount of the embezzlement. Wade Rathke stated to the New York Times that 'the decision to keep the matter secret was not made to protect his brother but because word of the embezzlement would have put a weapon into the hands of [...] conservatives who object to [ACORN]'s often strident advocacy on behalf of low- and moderate-income families and workers.' A whistleblower revealed the fraud in 2008, leading to the departure of both Dale and Wade Rathke."
Obama is a longtime ACORNian and The One chosen to fool the voters and then implement the ACORN agenda.
Michelle Malkin, in "The ACORN/Obama Voter Registration 'Thug Thizzle": "Despite his adamant denials of any association with the group (his Fight the Smears website now claims 'Barack Obama never organized with ACORN'), Obama's political DNA is encoded with the ACORN agenda."
Obama is ACORN's guy, and Obama and ACORN shamelessly lie.
Malkin: "Systemic corruption of our election process continues. Barack Obama and his old friends at ACORN and Project Vote are leading the way. This radical revolution is taking place in your backyard. And as I've reported before, this voter-fraud racket is on your dime."
As usual, Malkin is right.
Unfortunately, with Obama and ACORN, the bulk of the mainstream media is ignoring instead of scrutinizing and publicizing the danger.
To put it simply, Obama is lying about his ties to ACORN, lest voters see behind the curtain and realize he is a front man and a fraud.
"In 1992, Newman hired Obama to lead Project Vote efforts in Illinois. The Illinois drive's motto: 'It's a Power Thing.'
"....Obama also trained ACORN members in Chicago. In turn, ACORN volunteers worked on his Illinois campaigns and ACORN's PAC endorsed his primary bid with full backing and muscle."
ACORN has posed as a non-partisan organization.
It is not.
It took taxpayer money with one hand and promoted its political favorites with the other.
"ACORN, which receives 40 percent of its revenues from American taxpayers to pursue an aggressive welfare-state agenda, has already helped register over 1.27 million people nationwide. The rest of their funding comes from left-wing heavyweights like billionaire George Soros and the Democracy Alliance.
"Project Vote, a 501(c)(3) organization, was founded by left-wing lawyer Sandy Newman to register voters in welfare offices and unemployment lines with the explicit goal of turning back the Reagan revolution.
"The two groups are inextricably linked -- and at their nexus is Barack Obama."
Obama is NOT oblivious.
He's worse than oblivious.
Love the acronym!
Acorn needs to be shut down immediately.
Loved watching Obama mix up his cliches yesterday when talking about himself and saying:
“The acorn doesn’t fall from the tree”.
And yet Acorn was one of the first pieces of pork on the original bailout bill.
Your tagline just made my day...too funny especially in conjunction with the picture...I have to laugh or else I might cry...the media covering up for this smooth talking thug is really frightening.
Domestic terrorism comes in all forms.
We must fight them.
Even CNN is runni9ng stories.
Obama was Director of Project Vote in Chicago.
