I’m sure by now, most of you have at least heard of the independent filmmakers that visited a Baltimore ACORN (Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now) office posing as a prostitute and pimp looking for assistance in purchasing a house to use as a brothel. What you may not know is, Baltimore’s ACORN wasn’t the only office they visited. They’ve also released videos from Washington, DC, New York City, NY, San Bernadino, CA and San Diego, CA.
I want to show you the San Bernadino videos in a moment, because they’re incredibly appalling, but first I want to explain…
Why is this important?
(Note: If you’re in a hurry to be appalled, skip down to the first embedded video.)
I expect that most of you don’t follow politics as closely as I do. That’s because I think highly of you. You are probably sane and well adjusted and so bored with the workings of our government, that you wisely ignore most of the trumped up scandals that the politicians throw at each other daily. Unlike you, I developed an obsession with all things political about 8 years ago. I would say it began on 9/11/2001, the moment I saw the second plane crash into the World Trade Center. The world changed for me that moment and I couldn’t ignore the world or our government any longer. The upside of this, is I now pathologically watch all the news and sort through the crap so you don’t have to.
Back to the point – this scandal is the real deal. ACORN and Obama have a long history together. ACORN sought out Obama because the were impressed with his work in Chicago’s Developing Communities Project while working on his law degree. When he returned to Chicago they hired him as their attorney, to run a voter registration project, and to teach leadership training sessions. Because of their deep relationship, ACORN actively campaigned for Obama on his State Senate, US Senate and Presidential bids. In return, Obama pushed for ACORN’s interests, such as living wage and banking practices legislation in the Illinois State Senate. Upon becoming President, Obama promised ACORN that they could help shape his agenda during his first 100 days. Shortly thereafter, Obama moved the Census Office to the White House and announced that ACORN would have a key role with the 2010 Census. More recently, ACORN’s partner organization, the SEIU, send its members to intimidate and assault those who dared speak out against the proposed Health Care legislation Town Hall Meetings.
Now that it’s clear how closely ACORN is tied to Obama, lets take a look at what ACORN does:
PartIII – Sound is a bit wonky for the first minute or so.
