AIG "distraction" descends into mob mentality as ACORNís "WF Party" organizes bus tour of AIG homes
Flopping Aces ^ | 03-21-09 | Mataharley

Posted on 03/21/2009 4:03:37 PM PDT by Starman417

Up to the usual Alinsky antics - combining Rules #5 & #12 (see below rescript to jog your memory...) - The Connecticut Working Family Party has decided to further harrass and terrorize AIG families that received bonuses by organizing a tour bus filled with ... um.... socialists, Alinsky fans, O'faithful, and other activists who believe in intimidation tactics for political gain.

In a bittersweet irony, even the New York Magazine is appalled to find themselves on the side of Rush Limbaugh, saying:

Right, they're not fomenting rage, they're just encouraging it. So if you happen to record someone's address so you can return in the dead of night, it's not like Working Families told you to! We know we sound paranoid and we really can't believe we're actually on the same side as Rush, but this is getting way out of hand. Oh, to have fat ladies in high heels clogging up the West Village again.

Ever since Congress - trying to deflect their own responsibility and exposure of their sheer negligence - and their puppet media fanned the AIG bonuses into a side show, more dastardly deeds done in the dark of night or behind closed doors have been masked from the public's view.

Instead, the vicious circus has escalated out of control. AIG employees have found themselves the target of a particularly vicious public campaign. A powerful Congressman, virtually foaming at the mouth with fake indignation and spittle, was demanding names, while another elected official suggested they just "kill themselves". Others are recipients of emails suggesting "the firm's leaders "should be executed with piano wire around their necks."

In the meantime, the e-mails from the public have continued to roll in, including death threats and calls to blow up the firm's Wilton headquarters. Reporters and photographers have camped out in front of the offices in London and Connecticut. They have staked out employees' houses. The New York Post identified one executive and labeled him "Jackpot Jimmy." Another employee had to relocate his family after a London tabloid printed his address.

If the media and the powerful elected elite's assault isn't enough, Connecticut's chapter of the The Family Working Party has decided to transport the group of wacko crazies to the homes via bus tours... providing the very real possibility of return trips accompanied by mobs, or worse... in the dark of night to carry out some of the very real threats.

The Working Family Party... sounds so innocuous, yes? What could be more American than families. In truth, this is a third party formed by left over New Party socialists, labor unions, community organizations and... yup... everyone's favorite ACORN. Small wonder they are schooled in intimidation tactics on their fellow Americans.

Frankly, if it were my house, that tour would be met by me and several friends in rocking chairs on the porch with hunting rifles neatly laid across our laps.

And indeed, atop the increased security at the facilities to circumvent fears of employees being shot at while coming or going to work, some of the AIG families have increased security at their own homes.

Tell me... just what is President Obama's culpability, and or responsibilities, in this mob tactic? These are, afterall his personal grassroots henchmen. Brad Woodhouse's American's United for Change - which includes 25+ organizations including MoveOn.org and ACORN - remain in close touch with the WH deputy chief of staff, Jim Messina.

It was only last week when the LA Times reported on the WH in consultation with grassroots on budget issues and campaigns to marginalize Republicans.

Wonder how much they paid the ACORN dirtbags to clean up and get on the bus to go harass Americans who actually work for a living.

In your heart of hearts, don't you picture these bus riders and the FIRST IN LINE to grab a promised bonus from their bosses, regardless.

This makes me sick.

Is there a way to disband ACORN. I have had enough. They messed with our election, they are GOING to be messing with our census, they are being sent out to canvas homes to sign pledges to obama (does that make ya wanna puke or what....?) and they are now, after going to homes and actually threatening bank managers all across our nation, are NOW going en mass to folks home to HURT them, to EMBARRASS THEM, to SHAME them in front of their neighbors for something that was related to their jobs....promised to them by their bosses. IT IS SO WRONG FOR ACORN TO DO THIS...I HATE ACORN. I HATE IT. And I am so mad at the house democrats and senators and three republicans who VOTED for that stimulus package that assured ACORN billions of dollars over the next four years.....IT IS INSANE!!!!

Too bad there is no anti- Communist Brigade of citizens to counter this threat.

The Nazis and Commies from ACORN have rapidly turned the greatest country in the world into a lowlife, third world, banana republic sewer. NORMAL people don’t do what these ACORN maggots and their union massas are doing.

Rent a mob?

Now if the castrated republican party had any balls, they’d be organizing a tour of the nazi ACORN homes.

Steele the French poodle has to go - NOW! Gentlemen are fine for white tie cocktail parties, but we have a war to win.

This is great! The left is so confused.

These are the same people who said nothing about people visiting the homes and workplaces of those who supported and donated to Prop 8 in California. And the same people who get so miffed at protestors outside of abortion clinics who also post the addressess of abortion doctors and nurses.

Bottom line: We have a right to organize protests under the 1st Amendment. But it goes both ways. You can’t support one and not the other. (Well, you can, but then you’d be a big giant hypocrite).

If I were an AIG employee, I’d place a big sign in my front yeard that said, “AIG gave OBama $103,000. Ask him if he’ll be giving that back.”

Well, there is. The police will help ensure the peace and I am sure some of those AIG employees are well armed to kill whomever attacks them. If any were in my neighborhood I’d be having some fun with those protestors.

Nancy Pelosi and Barney Frank would just tax any court award at 100%.

ACORN principal office is in the WH

ACORN sends intimidation goon buses to individual’s homes to ‘protest’ AIG ‘bonuses’

Ergo, the WH is in part endorsing sending intimidation goon buses to individual’s homes to ‘protest’ AIG ‘bonuses’

First them, then you & me.

When all these tactics are over, no one will be left to work and live.
