If anything could lower your opinion of the Occupy Wall Street trash agitating against liberty and in favor of authoritarian collectivism, this might be it — the smelly socialist lowlifes are financed in part by your tax dollar through Obama’s alma mater ACORN. From the Corruption Chronicles:
Among the goals [of the moonbats] is to get major banks to stop preying on the poor and people of color, according to the organizer of a Boston offshoot of an Occupy Wall Street rally. The event, promoted as Take Back Boston, was organized by dozens of local community groups that claim big banks have a pattern of pushing “bad loans on people of color and the poor.” As a result of the “predatory lending,” foreclosures have skyrocketed in urban communities, the organizers say.
Among the Take Back Boston organizers is a spinoff of the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN). Amid a massive fraud scandal and a series of criminal probes, ACORN supposedly dismantled but the reality is that it simply changed its name. In fact, Judicial Watch recently published a special report (“The Rebranding of ACORN”) about the organization’s transformation into various spinoffs and affiliated groups.
In this particular case, ACORN’s Boston office simply rebranded into New England United 4 Justice. Same crooked group with the same general mission and president, but a different name. Headed by Maude Hurd, the former president of ACORN and ACORN Housing, New England United 4 Justice promotes “social justice” for “low and moderate income families.” The group also seeks to educate the general public about social justice issues and the needs of poor and middle class families.
This sort of rebranding has allowed ACORN to skirt a 2009 congressional ban on federal funding, consequence of its many transgressions. A few months ago a Judicial Watch investigation found the Obama Administration gave an ACORN reincarnation called Affordable Housing Centers of America (AHCOA) a $79,819 grant to “combat housing and lending discrimination.”
Students of ACORN will recall that this same organization exploited Jimmy Carter’s insane Community Reinvestment Act to coerce banks into making subprime loans, helping to trigger the 2008 economic meltdown. Barack Hussein Obama served this cause as a lawyer suing banks for not being “predatory” enough to loan money based on skin color rather than ability to repay.
Banks are damned if they do, damned if they don’t — by design. The objective is to destroy them and every other obstacle on the road to Soviet-style communism.
Having someone in the White House whose main work experience is as a community organizer has caused some to wonder just what community organizers organize. Thanks to the Occupy Wall Street infestation, now we know:
If you want this foul mob controlling your future, sit back and watch as Obama et al. continue to fundamentally transform our country into theirs.
