Booker Rising: ANGELA WINTERS OP-ED: Who Is ACORN?

Booker Rising: ANGELA WINTERS OP-ED

Who Is ACORN?

Asks the black moderate blogger: “In 2008, Republicans are looking at the polls and setting the stage for a legal protest, which appears to be the common strategy for both parties; just in case. But no one has been able to prove that the fraud has ever been enough to change the results. Republicans, and FOX News, seem to be very obsessed with ACORN, a voter registration organization that has a history of fraud. The latest controversies are in Missouri and Nevada. Why is this group still allowed to register people? Both parties should care about this, but since ACORN goes after low-income voters, which tend to vote blue, only the Republicans seem upset. But if Obama wins, you know that EVERYTHING will be questioned even if there isn’t any reason to. Republicans will not accept his victory.”

My response: I used to date someone who worked for ACORN, back when I was a socialist feminist (I’m still a feminist, but a libertarianesque one). ACORN is a socialist, community organizing group that focuses on housing issues in poor neighborhoods, wealth redistribution to poor neighborhoods, and a “living wage” while seeking exemptions from paying their own workers said wage. It is a de facto arm of the Democratic Party in order to promote socialism in America. Big group in Chicagoland, and in some other places.
