Left-Wing ACORN To Disband
IBD's Capital Hill ^ | 3/22/2010 | Ed Carson

Posted on 03/22/2010 4:31:09 PM PDT by Slyscribe

This doesn’t balance out ObamaCare for conservatives, but it eases the pain a little: The once mighty community activist group ACORN announced Monday it is folding amid falling revenues — six months after video footage emerged showing some of its workers giving tax tips to conservative activists posing as a pimp and prostitute. Well, at least they’re willing to accept responsibility. Oops. “It’s really declining revenue in the face of a series of attacks from partisan operatives

I don’t believe it. I bet they were moved over to their sister group SEIU.

Last week we had news Obama signed an executive order to restore funding or was it the court? - where will the money go?

Direct quote from the SEIU bylaws.

We must organize unorganized Healthcare workers, extending to them the gains of unionism while securing control over the Healthcare industry.

Isn't the IRS hiring for 16,000 more positions?

I'm sure all of this news is just coincidental.

When the Brown shirts were banned they just formed cells and
took on different names. One group called itself “The
Acorns”. Could history be repeating itself?

Yup. I have been saying all along that SEIU and ACORN thugs will run healthcare.

All the doctors need to go private. Also what about Catholic hospitals? Can they deny abortions and can doctors take private patients there?

It served a purpose.

All organizations look for the cream of whatever their ranks hold.

Acorn was a farm team.

I’ll bet the KKK disbanded after all the bad press the got. You know felt really bad about all the nasty stuff they had done.

Yeah Right!!!

Hold the election then call the Bosses in Philly and Chicago and tell them how many votes you need and VOILA, there the votes have magically appeared.

Annoy the libs, tell them dead folks can’t vote.

"Left-Wing ACORN To Disband"

They might as well. ACORN has been working 24/7 for at least the last two POTUS elections and midterms frauding almost every single voting district in the country to get marxist anti-US candidates elected whose goal was to "fundamentally change the United States of America" and with the passage of "ObamassiahCare", their main job of "slave reversal social justice" is completed.

Time for a break, name change and a "re-group".

Michelle Bachmann said that Obama ordered the funding for ACORN to be reinstated. This happened SATURDAY.

You had better believe that these criminal leeches are not about to walk away from millions of tax dollars. Especially when Obama and Holder have their backs.

If Republicans regain control of Congress in November it should be a priority to hold hearings on how ACORN continues to be funded by this administration and their sleazy money manipulators. And you can bet that the money still gets to them, no matter what they call themselves.

when the SA was disbanded after the night of the long knives, there was lots of openings for good little facists, in the SS and the Gestapo.

and so it will be the 0baminations little acorns....

Bull Crap.
They are just organizing under a new name.

Are you falling for their diversion?
Are you so simple minded to accept what they say - at face value?

I think that’s what’s happening - Bachmann said their funding was restored by he who would be king.

I’ve read every reply on this thread - aren’t federal contracts created with an organization by name? I know this congress and white house can do whatever they want going forward, but companies will keep an old name because to lose it means the federal contract is null. The contracts for tax preparation, housing, etc. would all have to be rewritten. Hmmm...

TUESDAY'S GREGALOGUE: ACORN, THE MOVIE

So ACORN, everyone's favorite nuthouse, finally closed its doors. I quietly mourned, just as I had when "Just Nuts" at the local mall shut down. It had 60 kinds of nuts, including the Ogbono - which isn't really a nut, but a drupe. Fun fact: macadamia is neither a nut or a drupe, but a follicle.

Maybe that wasn't a fun fact after all.

Kind of an opposite of a fun fact, if you ask me.

But you didn't. Anyway, with ACORN gone, it leads me to two thoughts. One: if it were a right-wing entity, and the pranksters were lefties - this would immediately turn into a mega-million dollar movie, directed by Steven Soderberg, with George Clooney comically hamming it up as the bad guy.

In fact, they should do that, anyway!

Turn ACORN into a drug company, with James O'keefe and Hannah Giles becoming whistleblowers who discover that the lifesaving cancer drug was made from fetuses! No wait. That won't matter. It's made from puppies! Right! puppies!

Matt Damon could play O'keefe, or possibly even Giles. He'll take any excuse to show off his marvelous legs.

But you get my point. In the past five years, we've had two very funny movies by Sasha Baron Cohen, a performer who used either racist or overly obnoxious characters to create discomfort among clueless Yanks (who, for the most part, reacted politely). But none of his pranks ever exposed corruption or real, deadly hate. I've said it before - Cohen, a Jew, would have scored more points if he hit a Willesden mosque, instead of a southern rodeo.

But he's the star.

Anyway, I look forward to the newest incarnation of ACORN. This stuff just doesn't go away, you know - it only finds another shell.

(What, you thought I wouldn't end with a nut metaphor?)

And if you disagree with me, you're a homophobe racist who bullies overweight flight attendants.
