Marxist Radicals Mug Paul Ryan
Posted By Matthew Vadum On August 15, 2012 @ 12:49 am In Daily Mailer,FrontPage | 1 Comment
Two days after the presumptive GOP presidential nominee named Congressman Paul Ryan (R-WI) as his vice presidential pick, Ryan was aggressively heckled by the agrarian socialists and union goons of the ACORN-like Iowa Citizens for Community Improvement (Iowa CCI) throughout a stump speech at the Iowa State Fair.
At last years Iowa State Fair members of Iowa CCI badgered and berated Romney, shrieking and interrupting him as he attempted to share his views on reforming entitlement programs like Social Security. They baited Romney into making his arguably impolitic admission that corporations are people.
Left-wing activists call this accountability, an Orwellian euphemism. Accountability, as the term is used by leftists, is not about transparency or good government. Perhaps partly inspired by the father of the New Left, Herbert Marcuse, who was in favor of silencing non-leftists, accountability actions focus on harassing and intimidating political enemies, disrupting them and forcing them to waste their campaign resources dealing with activists provocations.
After Iowa CCI activists loudly demanded Ryan halt the war on the poor they perennially accuse Republicans of waging, these broken records of the Left bragged about the trouble they caused as they challenge[d] Ryan on vitally important issues to everyday Iowans.
They claimed victory over the congressman, declaring they shaved 30 percent off his speaking time. Ryan spoke for only twelve minutes, well under his allotment of twenty.
Several protesters were removed from the event by police. One Iowa CCI activist even reportedly punched a Romney-Ryan volunteer during the speech. Of course the use of physical violence on opponents is an important tactic for the community organizer, as Rules for Radicals author Saul Alinsky admitted to his protégé Nicholas von Hoffman.
True to form, the left-wing Talking Points Memo website got a key detail of the attempted squelching of Ryans speech wrong. TPMs Igor Bobic fell for Iowa CCIs spin, referring to the nonprofit as an innocuous-sounding nonpartisan progressive group.
Although friendly reporters use the adjectives progressive and liberal to describe Iowa CCI, Marxist or neo-communist are more appropriate descriptors.
Iowa CCI has been praised by Bill Moyers and labeled the Most Valuable Grassroots Advocacy Group of 2009 by John Nichols of The Nation magazine. Nichols approves of the groups in-your-face activism.
Iowa CCIs anti-capitalist, anti-American activism guarantees it generous support from hard-left philanthropies. The group has taken in funding from the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation ($600,000 since 2001), Ford Foundation ($575,000 since 2003), McKnight Foundation ($415,000 since 1999), Annie E. Casey Foundation ($260,000 since 2001), Rockefeller Family Fund Inc. ($225,000 since 2000), Needmor Fund ($140,000 since 1999), the George Soros-funded Tides Foundation ($40,000 since 2000), Ben & Jerrys Foundation ($30,000 since 2007), and Threshold Foundation ($25,000 since 2008).
Iowa CCI has also received grants from the Unitarian Universalist Churchs Veatch Foundation. Grants from that charity were used to found the Minneapolis-based Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy (IATP) in 1986. Minnesota Secretary of State Mark Ritchie, the ACORN-loving former community organizer, was previously president of the IATP. Ritchie orchestrated Al Frankens theft of incumbent Republican Norm Colemans U.S. Senate seat in the 2008 election cycle.
Iowa CCI is part of a larger Alinsky-inspired organizing network called National Peoples Action (NPA). NPA makes no bones about its desire to overthrow what remains of Americas free enterprise system.
As I report in my book, Subversion Inc.: How Obamas ACORN Red Shirts are Still Terrorizing and Ripping Off American Taxpayers, NPA executive director George Goehl says radicals shouldnt let the financial crisis go to waste.
The banking crisis is the next big thing, Goehl said in 2010 at the left-wing Campaign for Americas Future conference. The banking crisis is the way to build a big economic justice movement in this country, Goehl said.
This is a once in a lifetime opportunity as progressives to engage millions of Americans in a big conversation around serious economic restructuring, not around eking out some victories around the margins, not about making life a little less worse for people, but about big time transformative change.
If you build a platform for revolution, the angry masses will do the rest, Goehl said.
If we create a space for people to come out they want to come out, he said. People are ready to move to the streets, some because theyre angry, some because they want justice right now, and some because theyre tired of hearing about the Tea Party coming out.
Like ACORN, Iowa CCI blackmails lenders using the financial affirmative action law known as the Community Reinvestment Act. The organization brags about being the first group to use the law to negotiate family farm loan agreements with banks.
NPA worked with the Service Employees International Union (SEIU), Alinskys Industrial Areas Foundation, and ACORNs new front groups across America in an economic terrorism campaign aimed at the financial services sector.
You might remember the joint actions conducted by NPA and SEIU. The two organizations have used angry mobs to invade banks and terrorize bank executives, such as Bank of Americas Greg Baer, in their homes.
Thats what the modern American version of the storm trooper, the community organizer, does.
And thats what the community organizers of Iowa CCI will continue to do.

some newsreader on the alphbets was saying that the “heckling” was typical - almost a “tradition” at the Iowa fair. But he did admit that Paul Ryan handled it well.
I wonder what other “traditions” will emerge from the left as we get closer to November...
There is absolutely no tactic the left will not resort to as the days get shorter, up to and including murder.
Thuggish disruption attempts like these truly are reminiscent of Nazi Brown Shirts. Yes, I’m comparing Obamanites to Nazis.
All it should take is for a few regular citizens (conservatives) to mill around the hecklers, discreetly stepping on toes to distract them.
A boot in the a**, it’s the American way.
“Thuggish disruption attempts like these truly are reminiscent of Nazi Brown Shirts. Yes, Im comparing Obamanites to Nazis.”
You are 100% correct in IMHO. Obummer the Socialist would dearly love to have and is working towards a version of Hitlers National Socialism and the world found out how well that worked.
They continue to show the world how vile they are.
They’re only helping normal people change their views on being a democrat and being associated with nuts like them.
I still say separate one of them from the herd, gag him and move him into an area where no one will see and beat the snot out of him.
Leave him with the thought that he is personally going to be held responsible if ANYONE from his group tries this again at a Romney/Ryan rally.
If you really want to make it interesting, wear masks and Obama 2012 shirts, video it and say this is what you are going to do to all Romney supporters.
Romney and Ryan should look at them and simply say: You are looking at Barak Obama’s radical Democratic Party.
Alive and well in a town near you....

Shall we assume the was 'transmitted' to Putin - and he approves?
'Traditions' the lowlife reporter speaks of are: dems get to be bullies, press turns a blind eye and - and if Republicans EVER act the same way the so-called press barbecues us.
Yeah, what a 'tradition' ...all the fun and fairness of organized crime with their enforcers.
Can America’s Krystalnacht be far behind?
Someday these Leftists are going to get violent with the wrong people, and it will end with body bags.
German Jewry was unarmed.
I think Bam-Bam's brown-shirts and bolsheviks will get a slightly different reception from Hitler's and Lenin's originals ...
“some newsreader on the alphabets was saying that the heckling was typical - almost a tradition at the Iowa fair” . . . I call BS on the alphabet news reader.
Where is the “Like” button when you need it?
I hope the Secret Service steps up their protection of Romney/Ryan because the enemy will make attempts to assassinate them. Of this I have no doubt.
The closer we get to election day and it looks like Zero might lose the danger will increase.
Ryan should have kicked one of those goons in the face when they climbed on the stage. If I was in the crowd when these commies started mouthing off next to me, I think my fist would have slipped.
“....I wonder what other traditions will emerge from the left as we get closer to November...”
Well, one of their re-emerging “traditions” was on display earlier today at the Family Research Council. Advancing thuggery, degree by degree, step by step.
Progressives: You’ll progress in our direction or we’ll jail/silence/maim/kill you!
So true and with a silent MSM they feel emboldened which makes them all the more dangerous.
