Sherrod Brown’s ACORN Video Disappears Just in Time for The Election
Breitbart ^ | 10/21/12 | Matthew Vadum

Posted on 10/21/2012 7:36:00 AM PDT by Nachum

When you’re America’s most liberal senator locked in a tight race with a conservative challenger, it’s always a good thing when a damning YouTube that shows you praising organized crime disappears.

Hard-left Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) appears in a 2008 video praising the gangster group known by the acronym ACORN. In the video dated May 12, 2008, called “ACORN Grassroots Democracy Campaign,” Brown praises the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now to the heavens:

I’ve met with ACORN lots of times in Ohio. They’re a terrific grassroots organization that is working to connect politics with working families and low-income people and there’s no higher calling than that as more low-income people are going to vote this year and help to change the direction of our country. […]

Because ACORN is so articulate and so outspoken in advocating for low income people they bring an awful of people into politics to the voting booths who wouldn’t come otherwise.

I had accessed the video on July 22, 2010 while I was working on the manuscript for my exposé of ACORN, Subversion Inc.: How Obama’s ACORN Red Shirts are Still Ripping Off and Terrorizing American Taxpayers, but now the 9-minute clip is locked. The video may only be viewed with the permission of the YouTube account holder. Visit the web address for the video and this message appears: “This video is private. Sorry about that.” I saved the video and uploaded it here.

This is great but does this type of thing really have an effect on the election? Does it really influence anybody? Brown fans are on the same page and have no problem with ACORN, Planned Parenthood et al.

The Cleveland Plain Dealer endorsed The Messiah surprise there.

The By-Lines on the PD are 50% or more N.Y.Times nearly every day. They also endorse EVERY Democrat that's running for ANY office, regularly.

They are truly "Ohio's Fishwrapper".

Sherrod Brown is married to a former P.D. Reporter, who's a Lefty Loon, also.

Between all the blue-collar Union fools (the bulk of which are un-employed), and the inner-city tribe members in Cleveland, Ohio is hard-pressed NOT to be carried by The Messiah, AND, NOT to re-elect the Communist Sherrod Brown.

I’m sorry that there are still people who do not know the history of the democrat party, unions and organized crime. They are embedded in each other and cannot be separated- their alliance is too old. I just do not understand the fact that there are still decent Americans who vote for dems in ANY election.

Just saw “Hating Breitbart” — the whole Sherrod story is told prominently. Go see it. A fitting tribute to a valiant and fearless warrior for freedom and America.

“They are truly “Ohio’s Fishwrapper”.”

What did those fish ever do to you to deserve that kind of treatment? LOL
