Socialist ‘Success’: Food Stamp Use Breaks Record

Woo Hoo! Food stamp use in America skyrocketed to a record 41.8 million Americans in July as the jobless rate almost hit a 27-year high, according to news reports.

But wait! It gets even better! The Obama White House projects that in the federal fiscal year that started Oct. 1 an average of 43.3 million people, or more than one eighth of the U.S. population, will take in food stamps each month. That means more than1 in 8 Americans will be on welfare.

Poverty pimp fist bumps all around! Socialist congressman Jim McDermott (D-Wash.) just told Ed Schultz that without food stamps America would be in “terrible” shape.

The explosion in food stamps seems consistent with the Cloward-Piven Strategy of manufactured crisis (named after two anti-capitalist sociologists). It calls for packing the welfare rolls to encourage dependency on the government and to overload it with financial demands in order to hasten the collapse of American capitalism.

This has always been the goal of ACORN, the radical group President Obama used to work for. In fact ACORN founder Wade Rathke openly embraces the Cloward-Piven Strategy, which he has called an “exciting call to arms.” He notes that the activist group that Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven created and that he organized for in the late 1960s, the now-defunct National Welfare Rights Organization or NWRO (which was ACORN’s parent organization), caused “a flood tide from its work that allowed many boats to rise, including the level of participation in government assistance programs.”

In a circa 1999 document, “To Each Their Home: Success Stories from the ACORN Housing Corporation,” the ACORN affiliate called the American Dream a sham and bragged about undermining banks’ underwriting standards. (ACORN Housing is now trying to trick the American public into believing it is a “new” organization. It changed its name to Affordable Housing Centers of America.)

The brochure acknowledged there may be scattered “stories of hope and success” in ACORN-targeted communities, but “they also belie the supposition that if you simply work hard, sacrifice and save, you can easily buy a home of your own.” To ACORN and its allies the American Dream is welfare and permanent dependency on government.
