Found this video of a small kerfuffle with ACORN frauds selling Gadsden flags at the Protest! After they were discovered for who they were, they were chased out of the Mall.
I guess we better beware of who we purchase from at future protests, so that were not inadvertently filling ACORNs coffers. ---------------------------------------
from TheSpiritOfTruth's YouTube video report:
My blog: http://SpiritOfTruth.me
This is footage of a small group of ACORN activists getting chewed away from the 9/12 DC rally at the Capitol. Apparently someone in the organization decided it'd be ironic to sell "Don't Tread On Me" flags to protesters with proceeds going to ACORN. The plan didn't work out so well as one of the protesters, Tim Jones, overheard the police telling the ACORN folk to leave the rally. After circling a bit, the activists tried to continue their flag marketing, but Mr. Jones would not have it. He followed them announcing to the crowd that they were ACORN provocateurs. Consequently, Tim was hit in the face, shoved and even his wife was rustled up a bit. But his efforts paid off as the Capitol Police eventually intervened and showed ACORN the way out."

Nice job! I salute his moxie.
Well, I guess I could say... at least they learned about capitalism by grazing close to us.
Nah, evil can only imitate, twist or destroy... not create. Envy, jealousy, greed.
I guess ACORN doesn’t pay them enough (of course they don’t). The irony is... they gave them a Metro Card and a food voucher and sent them on their way.
Thanks for putting this up. Thanks also to Spirit of Truth for following Mr. Jones and his wife as they courageously acted against the vile ACORN scum. Let this incident be a warning to all patriots. Buyer beware!
The media here in Los Angeles, with the exception of ABC, ignored the 9-12 event. Their excuse was they didn’t have enough crews since there was the memorial for the two firefighters at which VP Biden spoke, and the memorials for the victims of a train accident. Fox said they didn’t know about the event. This is a major market with media pouring from every nook and cranny so that excuse won’t cut it. Shame on them all.
God bless everyone who stood up around the country! We have just begun to fight!
ping for lists and prayers for safety from rats
Ping for lists—acorn thugs on tape
MsM and janet would applaud for their defense of acorns freedom... :-p
Sick, isn’t it ?
WoW I noticed you joined recently? How did you find fr?
We are on The Bridge now.
And you know what else?
THEY ARE APPROACHING IT.
THEY ..... ARE ..... NOT.... GOING .... PASS.
Next time we will have TWO MILLION if they dont listen to us, their masters, The PEOPLE. All it will take is for each person who was there to get three or four or more of their family, friends, neighbors or co-workers to attend.
I been here since 2004... ask Jim Rob
ACORN selling gadsen flags? That really looks fishy! We better report this to the “Something Fishy” Snitch Whitehouse email address!
I salute Tim Jones and raise my lukewarm mug of coffee in a toast to his courage in the face of assault and battery by ACORN thugs!
Hmm. Remember the black fellow who was accosted by SEIU thugs at a town hall meeting for distributing those same flags? Perhaps a bit of follow-up research on that incident is in order.
That guy was actually with the Tea Party Express. He spoke and gave his account of the incident in Canton.
Guess the Navy is a terrorist organization since every ship flies the Don’t Tread on Me flag.
If we had a president and attorney general who were not in bed with acorn, we would have to build a lot of new prisons to house all the acorn hustlers. As it is, they’ll get protected by the WH, justice department, and gutless republicans in congress.
Imagine if you will....a liberal protest with the same number of black folk in attendance....3 whites do the same thing these people did. Do you belive they would have made it home alive? LMAO.
It's got nothing to do with race; it has everything to do with culture and ideology. it just so happens that black culture in America has by and large been coop'ed by the liberals, who are not against using violence against those who disagree with them.
You'd find the same amount of vehemence and violence in a crowd of white liberals as you would black ones. The facts have proven that time and time again.
I sent him a “God Bless you and way to go” email...this guy will be on Beck and/or Hannity’s show very soon,i’m sure!
No, that’s okay! I was just wondering because you write like you’re NOT a newbie. :) I guess that explains it. You’re an oldie. Hehheh
Did you guys see this yet?
I honestly think that the local ACORN people were trying to make a LOT of money off the protesters...using it as a wind fall of sorts.
Those women may have claimed ACORN status to try and legitimize what they were doing not realizing what kind of back lash they would face.
If they thought they were going to somehow make those protestors look like a bunch of wild eyed, violent, tear down the nation types, they were sadly mistaken.
My own guess is that some folks were trying to cash in. Her assault on the one man, IMHO, should have been pursued
I salute you Mr. Jones!
I couldn’t believe they admitted to being members of acorn, since they warned the pimp and prostitute to avoid talking or they could end up on fox news. Dontcha think they had to know they were in enemy territory?
ALWAYS bring your own signs!
Not the Gadsden tho, the Navy flies the 1st Navy Jack since 9/11/02.
All it did was make clear to the officers that they had to go.
I believe these two women were out trying to make a lot of money for themselves (or their local ACORN office) but I would lean towards a self-profit motive.
Just my opinion though.
Oh okay, understood. I agree, that’s very plausible.
I turned it off a little after he told the kid “You got the wrong symbol here, boy”.
He may not have meant it in a racial way, but you gotta expect a reaction when you call a black male, “boy”. He’s old enough to know it.
I’m not saying she is justified for battery. But, I understand her reaction completely. She flies into the frame yelling “that’s my son”.
In sum, I would be very dubious to point this video out as something that glorifies our cause. If he left the word “boy” off his exclamation, it would be different.
The worst part of this video is that for some people, it confirms what they believe is said behind their backs.
NOpe, I’m not falling for that liberal political correctness/that’s racist! garbage!! Sometimes a boy is just a boy (and this WAS a kid, which I believe is what Mr. Jones meant, and not something racial) and a girl is just a girl—when I was a teacher in an inner city school years ago, I would tell kids getting in trouble, “Girl, you need to settle down now before I have to send you to the office!” Or
“Boy, how many times have I asked you to bring your homework to school EVERY day?!?” I used it with white kids, black kids, hispanic kids— nothing racial about it, just a way of speaking that’s been co-opted by the left as ‘racist’...just like they did the comment by John McCain about “that one” when he pointed out HolyO’s liberal background during a debate!
I think if the rally was full of racists, there would be tape after tape of people using the N-word casually—even Mr. Jones, as he follows these ACORN operatives around until they actually leave the rally, NEVER used the N-word on camera...saying boy to a kid who is deceiving decent Americans—not so much racist as descriptive, IMO.
Now if Mr. Jones had been speaking to a full grown elderly black man and said ‘boy’, yes, I think that would have been racist. But this WAS a kid/teen, and it WAS a boy. Nothing racist about calling him a boy in that case.
“NOpe, Im not falling for that liberal political correctness/thats racist! garbage!! ...”
I’ve never been accused of being PC or liberal. :)
Look, I’m not saying he meant it that way. I give the man the benefit of doubt.
What I’m saying is that all of us know by now that you don’t call a black male “boy”, even if he is literally a boy.
You have see why this kid’s mother would get upset. It’s nice to say that “boy” wasn’t used in a bad way. She doesn’t know that. And there are certain things that push logic out the window and emotion into the forefront.
This isn’t a video I would show my friends as an example of someone on the other side assaulting a 912-er. No way.
I must confess that I purchased four of these Gadsden flags at the DC March for $5/each from a fellow wearing a Steelers (my favorite team) cap. He was nice enough, we exchanged a few pleasantries about the Steelers. I wonder if he was ACORN.
He and his wife happened to be standing nearby when they asked a police officer some sort of question (where to park? not sure), at that point either they volunteered that they were with ACORN, or the cops pointed it out and asked them to leave the rally...
I too wonder now if other ACORN operatives have been selling these Gadsen flags at various rallies. Probably got a good yuck out of it, laughing at the people who gave them money.
Thanks. Well, the four sof us are all thrilled to each be displaying our Gadsden flags, so everybody is happy, I reckon.
Work on that font and clip art all day? They...Are...Not...Going...Pass. Huh? Pass? or Past?
How about: They are not going to pass
Or: They are not going past
