On Friday, Sean Hannity spoke to Hannah Jiles, the young woman who, along with filmmaker James O’Keefe, has revealed the rot at the center of the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN).
Tonight I expect she or O’Keefe will be on the show again, because this morning news broke that the pair of undercover journalists have released a third video.
Like the previous videos shot in ACORN offices in Baltimore and Washington, DC, this one shows ACORN employees in New York, willing and eager to use taxpayer money to fund brothels full of underage girls:
From the start, Andrew Breitbart’s new website BigGovernment.com has showcased the filmmakers’ exposes. Today the site’s editor, Mike Flynn, also posted a copy of “an internal quasi-employee manual” from ACORN, which he says is provided to all ACORN staffers.
The whole thing is worth a read. I draw your attention to just one sentence (ACORN emphasizes it with italics):
“ACORNâ€™s lifeblood is conflicts with targets outside the organization.”
Think about that. ACORNâ€™s lifeblood isnâ€™t empowering disadvantaged communities nor lifting people out of poverty. It isnâ€™t concerned about increasing economic growth to improve the lives of its members. Itâ€™s lifeblood is conflict. Conflict with targets. It actually thinks of the world outside itself as targets.
It explains a lot.
Of course, Discover the Networks has fully documented ACORN’s history since its inception. As noted from the start, Barack Obama has clear and irrefutable “historical ties” to this radical leftwing group.
ACORN attracted Barack Obama in his youthful community organizing days. Madeline Talbott [a Chicago activist who led the aforementioned ACORN effort to storm the Chicago City Council in July 1997] hired him to train her staff — the very people who would later descend on Chicago’s banks as CRA shakedown artists. [Obama] later funneled money to [ACORN] through the Woods Fund, on whose board he sat, and through the Chicago Annenberg Challenge, ditto. Obama was not just sympathetic — he was an ACORN fellow traveler.
