I think we need a new name for the ACORN acronym.

ACORN, you know, the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now.  It needs to be changed to better reflect the nature of their organization. Here’s a likely list of candidates:

  • Assistance for Con-artists Organizing Repugnant Nonsense
  • Artistic Configuration Of Reprobative Nefariousness
  • Altruistic Corruption Of Responsible Necessity

It’s not enough that ACORN is

Here is hidden camera proof of their corrupt policies in action:

Chaos for Glory:  My Time with ACORN
by James O’Keefe
Sep 10th 2009 at 6:10 am

The scenario we posed the ACORN Housing employees in Baltimore is due to the application of similar power tactics. We gave ACORN a taste of its own medicine.  ACORN was alleged to be thug-like, criminal, and nefarious.  This criminal behavior was evidenced by a video of Baltimore ACORN community organizers breaking the locks on foreclosed homes.  Instead of railing against their radicalism, it is best to bring out this type of radicalism. Hannah Giles and I took advantage of ACORN’s regard for thug criminality by posing the most ridiculous criminal scenario we could think of and seeing if they would comply–which they did without hesitation.

Additionally, instead of focusing on foreclosure itself, which has become seemingly as politicized as abortion, we focused on crimes more difficult for the left to defend: trafficking of young helpless girls and tax evasion. The first group represents the severely disadvantaged, the second a threat to the distribution of wealth.

While manipulation or entrapment occurs when people are encouraged to do things they otherwise wouldn’t, the pre-set trap is their own.  These tactics allow the viewer to see ACORN’s soul; their playing field and their morality, out in the open.  Their system is based on conflict and change for its own sake.  This system is based on totalitarian principles and class war techniques. These people understand pressure, power and self-interest.  When the Baltimore employees saw we were shady dealers, their instincts clicked in, as we were prime recruits.

A spokesman for ACORN, Scott Levenson, told Fox News about the video tape: “The portrayal is false and defamatory and an attempt at gotcha journalism. This film crew tried to pull this sham at other offices and failed. ACORN wants to see the full video before commenting further.”

There is no amount of back-peddling possible that could undo what we see in these videos.
