Recent reports suggest that the disgraced radical Marxist group involved with ACORN (Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now) is playing a major role in the Occupy Wall Street movement.
According to Fox News …
“EXCLUSIVE: ACORN Playing Behind Scenes Role in 'Occupy' Movement”
“The former New York office for ACORN, the disbanded community activist group, is playing a key role in the self-proclaimed ‘leaderless’ Occupy Wall Street movement, organizing ‘guerrilla’ protest events and hiring door-to-door canvassers to collect money under the banner of various causes while spending it on protest-related activities, sources tell FoxNews.com.”
“The former director of New York ACORN, Jon Kest, and his top aides are now busy working at protest events for New York Communities for Change (NYCC). That organization was created in late 2009 when some ACORN offices disbanded and reorganized under new names after undercover video exposes prompted Congress to cut off federal funds.”
A disguised skunk still stinks …
“NYCC’s connection to ACORN isn’t a tenuous one: It works from the former ACORN offices in Brooklyn, uses old ACORN office stationery, employs much of the old ACORN staff and, according to several sources, engages in some of the old organization’s controversial techniques to raise money, interest and awareness for the protests.”
“Sources said NYCC has hired about 100 former ACORN-affiliated staff members from other cities – paying some of them $100 a day - to attend and support Occupy Wall Street. Dozens of New York homeless people recruited from shelters are also being paid to support the protests, at the rate of $10 an hour, the sources said.”
As spontaneous as a communist demonstration …
In furtherance of their Marxist ideology, Acorn and the SEIU – Service Employees International Union (founded by the same people) will do or say anything to promote their pro-Marxist agenda. And Barack Obama openly and publicly proclaims he stands with these people.
Bottom Line …
Most of these people have no clue to who is behind “their” movement or how they are being manipulated. All they know is that the message is “populist” and “sounds good to me.”
Others are there for the same reason they go to street fairs – exciting and something to do.
I say that there should be a formal investigation and the agitators held accountable for clean-up costs or any non-permitted activities.
As for Barack Obama and his fellow community organizers, throw the bums out of office and positions of power. Return America to the American ideal – not a slippery slope to the “enlightened workers” of North Korea.
