ACORN, Still a Thorn in the Side of the Real America

  It has started already.

The “Occupy Wall St.” movement (as in bowel) is not the philosophically, ideologically driven bunch they would appear to be. Indeed their little demonstrations are reminiscent of the hippy love-ins  and anti-war demos of the ‘60’s. They are not looking for a hand, but a hand-out.

It is the case that these demonstrations are the work of the ACORN and other leftist organizations. The specific group responsible is The Working Families Party (WFP), founded in 1998 by an alliance of radical left groups including SEIU, in addition.

In an article by Matthew Vadum for Frontpagemag.com he quotes Laura Flanders’, a radical journalist for Free Speech TV, characterization of the WFP. She writes, “the Working Families Party​, an infamous ACORN front group notorious for corruption, was instrumental in organizing the Occupy Wall Street protests” (bolds mine).

Make no mistake WFP is ACORN. “The WFP is part and parcel of ACORN. . . . WFP’s headquarters is at the same address as ACORN on Nevins Street in Brooklyn. But it is even more complex than that.

One of the SEIU-funded party’s co-founders is ACORN’s former national chief organizer, Bertha Lewis. Democratic National Committee executive director Patrick Gaspard​ also contributed to the creation of the party and sat on its board. Gaspard was a political director in the Obama White House and is a former SEIU executive. Gaspard was also an organizer for the radical New Party in the early 1990s. That party’s membership consisted largely of individuals from the Democratic Socialists of America​, SEIU, and ACORN.

All of this buttresses what I wrote in my last blog. Make no mistake, we have our hands full in 2012. It is will be a historic year and a pivotal election; one way or the other, for liberty–our God ordained liberty or for anarchy and violence. We saw it in Wisconsin, we see it now.

We must, as true Americans, embrace once again the commitment and dedication of America’s founding fathers found in the closing words of the Declaration of Independence.

We must “mutually pledge . . . our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor” to win this battle or we will rue the day.
