Skip to comments.ACORN = Bill Ayers’s Weather Underground
Posted on 10/15/2008 8:25:40 AM PDT by vadum
I just realized that ACORN and William Ayers's terrorist group, the Weather Underground, have the same parent (or perhaps grandparent): Students for a Democratic Society.
Both grew out of the radical 1960s group, Students for a Democratic Society, but took different paths.
The Weather Underground decided violence was the way to change society, but its sister (or perhaps cousin would be a better word), ACORN, decided that community organizing was the way to change society.
It would even be fair to say that ACORN is in a sense the nonviolent version of the Weather Underground.
In this sense, the connection between Ayers and Barack Obama is even closer than I thought previously.
More like Cloward Piven
Which originated at Columbia
Which is where Ayers probably met Obama and began his grooming process
Which originated at Columbia
Which was influenced by The Frankfurt School.
Obama was actually "groomed" by Franklin Marshall Davis, his childhood mentor, confirmed CPUSA member and admitted pedophile:
Obama's Red Mentor was a PervertHe can't deny this close association with an admitted communist. Also see:
Davis, who was investigated by the FBI and various congressional and official inquiries, was a CPUSA member. In fact, as AIM has documented, Davis was involved in the CPUSA or its front activities, before, during and after World War II, and became a member of a secret communist apparatus in the 1950s after the CPUSA in Hawaii was reorganized on an underground basis.
AIM had confirmed that Obamas white grandfather, Stanley Dunham, picked Davis because Obamas black father had abandoned the family and Dunham thought Obama needed a black father-figure. AIM also confirmed that Davis was Obamas mentor during the critical years 1975-1979.
Harnden claimed in a preceding article that Obama was introduced to Davis in 1970 when he was only nine years old. This would mean that Davis was an influence over Obama for about nine full years, until Obama was 18 and went off to college.
Harnden quotes Dawna Weatherly-Williams, a friend of Daviss, as saying that Stanley Dunham brought Obama to meet Davis in the autumn of 1970. She was chatting with him [Davis] that late autumn afternoon as Dunham and Barry [Obama] approached, Harnden reports.
Harnden also reports that Davis and Dunham smoked marijuana together. Dawna Weatherly-Williams said that Frank never really did drugs, though he and Stan would smoke pot together, the paper said. Obama, of course, also admits that he used marijuana and cocaine in his youth.
Citing passages from Obamas own book, Dreams From My Father, which was published in 1995, Harnden demonstrates how Obama went to Frank for advice about racial issues, college, and other matters at critical periods in his life. Clearly, the relationship between them, as concluded by many observers, was strong.

Look at what I found in one of the links
some well known “journalism” types on this list
wonder how many of these will show up to advise obama?
I keep trying to clue people here about the Frankfurt School roots of today’s Marxist-socialist movement and ties to our education system.

On Barack Obama's Marxist connections in Chicago
More on Obama's odd alliance with authoritarians (Marxist radical Islamist):
1n 1965, William (Bill) Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn are inspired by Saul Alinsky of Chicagos radical political philosophy that is spelled out in his book Rules for Radicals. They join the leftist political group called the New Party and another leftist political group called Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) that has just been founded at Michigan State University.
In the mid-1960s, Columbia Sociology Professor Richard A. Cloward and his wife, Francis Fox Piven, are also inspired by the radical political philosophy of Saul Alinsky. Based on nformation in Saul Alinsky’s book, “Rules for Radicals, Cloward & Piven devise a powerful strategy that hinges on creating social class warfare to force America’s capitalistic democratic republic to CHANGE into a totalitarian socialist state.
In 1966, in an effort to put their strategy for socio-political change into action, Cloward & Piven establish the National Welfare Rights Organization (NWRO) and in 1967 they recruit a member of Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) and follower of Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals”, George A. Wiley, to run NWRO.
From 1968-1969, As head of an SDS regional group, the “Jesse James Gang”, Ayers made decisive contributions to the Weatherman orientation toward militancy.
In 1969, Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn co-found the Weathermen domestic terrorist group. The Weathermen were initially part of the Revolutionary Youth Movement (RYM) within the SDS, splitting from the RYM’s Maoists by claiming there was no time to build a vanguard party and that revolutionary war against the United States government and the capitalist system should begin immediately. Their founding document called for the establishment of a “white fighting force” to be allied with the “Black Liberation Movement”
In 1970, Wiley passes the mantle at NWRO to community organizer and member of Students for Democratic Society (SDS), Wade Rathke, who also subscribes to Saul Alinsky’s radical political philosophy. Wade Rathke and Gary Delgado expand the NWRO into the Arkansas Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now and later into the national Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN). Maude Hurd has been National President of ACORN since 1990.
In 1970, Ayers is called “a national leader of the Weatherman organization and “one of the chief theoreticians of the Weathermen (he eventually participates in more than 30 bombings) and Ayers, Dohrn, and several other Weathermen associates “go underground”.
From 1970-1992, Ayers and Dohrn radicalize the Chicago Public School (CPS) System by becoming well respected early childhood education specialists. Ayers starts “experimental schools” that teach a Marxist-inspired curriculum that is later adopted by the entire school system in Chicago and with the help of Ayers’ textbooks and teacher training materials is also incorporated in school systems across the nation.
In 1992, Obama takes time off from his work at the Davis, Miner, Barnhill & Galland Law Firm in Chicago to direct Project Vote which was run out of the Chicago Chapter of ACORN. It is a very lucrative voter registration drive and Obamas efforts, in large part, get Senator Alice Palmer elected. Palmer is supported by Students for a Democratic Society and other leftist political groups. Because of Project Votes immense success, Obama is asked by the head of ACORN in Chicago, Madeleine Talbot, to train all of her community organizer leaders in his organizing methods.
In 1995, Obama represents ACORN in a lawsuit against the state of Illinois over enforcement of federal law involving voter registration issues for low-income people, according to the Associated Press.
In 1996, Obama launches his first run for elected office for a seat in the Illinois state senate with a fundraiser event at the home of domestic unrepentent terrorists, Bill Ayers and bernardine Dohrn. Obama is supported in this election by the leftist New Party (communist), Students for a Democratic Society (SDS)(socialists), and the Democratic Party in the Illinois State Senate race.
1n 1996, ACORN supports and lobbies for the federal Motor Voter Act” which, when passed, makes it simpler for people to register to vote.
From 1998-2002, Obama and Ayers serve together on two “philanthropic” foundation boards and fund ACORN projects with grants that total $730,000, nearly a quarter of a million dollars.
On April 2, 2001, William Ayers makes an individual contribution of $200 to Obama’s Friends of Barack Obama re-election fund to the Illinois State Senate.
In 2003-2004, Obama runs for the U.S. Senate with support from the New Party, Students for a Democratic Society (SDS), and the Democratic Party and wins. Obama campaigns for openly socialist Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont.
In 2006, Obama announces his run for the U.S. Presidency on the Democratic ticket.
In November 2007, Barack Obama makes a speech to ACORN in which he says, Ive been fighting alongside ACORN on issues you care about my entire career. Even before I was an elected official, when I ran Project Vote voter registration drive in Illinois, ACORN was smack dab in the middle of it, and we appreciate your work. Barack Obama,
In 2008, the Obama presidential campaign pays $800,000 to an ACORN subsidiary, called Citizen Service, Inc., to operate get out the vote efforts, according to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.
ACORN Votes, ACORN’s national political action committee, endorsed the candidacy of Barack Obama during the 2008 Democratic Presidential Primary,
On Oct. 14, 2008, the head community organizer at ACORN, William Rathke, son of Wade Rathke (who was a member of Students for Democratic Society (SDS)and subscribed to Saul Alinsky’s radical political philosophy), is quoted by FOXNews as debunking that ACORN has participated in any voter fraud.
THAT brings us to TODAY-—Smack dab in the middle of a 1960s style socialist/marxist sociopolitical REVOLUTION!!!
Thanks for this succinct chronology. All of these relationships make sense now. The communists always believed they would be successful at taking over our country from within, rather than trying to defeat us militarily.
