ACORN’s Political Parties And Their Democratic Socialist Patron

September 30, 2009

Evan Maloney just sent us an article he found on Red State titled:

Inside The ACORN Rolodex: ACORN Has Its Own Political Party Other Than the Democrats

For many years it has been speculated that SEIU and ACORN share a common foundation. This seems to suggest as much. In fact, in at least one appearance on the contacts list, an SEIU official has an ACORN email address. But were this picture a tree, the trunk would be the Working Families Party. Roger Stone has suggested the Working Families Party is ACORN. Bertha Lewis’s contacts list suggests as much.

Lewis is both the head of ACORN and also the Co-Chair of the Working Families Party. As you can imagine, ACORN would have us believe that those are separate roles. However, information suggests otherwise and we also know that ACORN has a habit of creating political parties for its own ends.

Founding Bloggers can exclusively confirm that as of 2000, ACORN listed the Working Families Party as an affiliate of ACORN. They also listed the New Party as an affiliate.

To drive the relationship home for you, ACORN and Project Vote shared office space with Working Families Party and the New Party in NYC, Arkansas, and Illinois!

Are people supposed to believe that ACORN shared office space with Project Vote and these political parties, and they never talked or shared resources or funding? What are the odds that these arrangements led to an unhealthy, if not illegal, mix of federal tax dollars and political organizing?

spacer by you.

Red State is reporting that Democrats are trying to distance themselves from the Working Families Party:

Even the Democrats – who have become the WFP’s closest allies since the party helped them win a slim majority in the state Senate – are looking to distance themselves. They’ve got plans to build their own field organization.

That would enable Dems to rely less on the WFP’s controversial for-profit arm, Data & Field Services, which has drawn scrutiny from the city Campaign Finance Board.

Now why would Democrats want to distance themselves from the WFP? Aside from the radioactive nature of ACORN, and thus ACORN’s political parties, perhaps the Democrats don’t want you to know that the WFP also received financial support from the Democratic Socialists of America!

From the DSA publication “Democratic Left”

DSA is no more loyal to the Democratic Party – which barely exists as a grassroots institution – than are individuals or social movements which upon occasion use its ballot line or vote for its candidates. The peculiar nature of the American constitution renders third party politics difficult at both the national and state level. Myriad structural factors mitigate against viable third parties, and various constitutional blockages are exceedingly difficult to amend: executive-based federalism makes parliamentary-style coalition-governments impossible, winner-take all districts, absence of proportional representation, open primaries in which party membership is regulated states not parties themselves — allowing both Klansmen and Communists to be members of the Democratic Party, In the GOP, white libertarian upper-middle-class suburbanites contend with white working-class fundamentalists for influence in that party. Veterans of the left will remember that the 1968 Peace and Freedom Party and the 1980 Citizens Party arose at moments of greater left-wing strength and did not significantly alter the national electoral landscape. Nor has, unfortunately, the New Party, which many DSAers work with in states where “fusion” of third party and major party votes is possible (such as the DSA co-sponsored Working Families Party in N.Y. State).

Good luck avoiding that inconvenient truth.

    Today, we are in the critical phase of an ideological and philosophical battle to presereve our democracy. We have witnessed many of our democratically elected leaders uttering false and debasing propoganda against the citizens of our country for exercising their rights to protest and speak freely.

    In doing so, these same democraticaly elected leaders subvert the very democratic processes they have sworn to uphold and defend.

    What is so distressing about this is that we have yet to hear any of these same leaders protest aginst ACORN and denounce their illegitimate acts which subvert the priciples of our democracy.

    We the people have the abosulte right to be safeguarded against the fraud and corruption of organizations like ACORN, which utilizes their constitutional freedoms to subvert our democracy.

    The continuing refusal of these leaders to speak out againt these illegitae acts, allows ACORN and their ilk to subject us to this continuing corruption.

    And when in the course of human events, our elected leaders become complicit in allowing this continuing subversion of our democracy, then We The People have the absolute right to revolt against this illegitimate tyranny.
