Obama: From ACORN Organizer to Audacious Hypocrite

August 11, 2008

A lot of very ugly things about Barack Obama emerge from his entrance into politics in 1996.

It is a documented fact that Barack Obama’s days as a “community organizer” is media code to describe his service with ACORN (Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now). ACORN currently is – and has for years routinely been – connected with and convicted of voter fraud. They have caught in state after state, city after city (just Google “ACORN” and “voter fraud” to get a sense of the scope) registering nonexistent voters as Democrats.

And Barack Obama was part of this profoundly un- and anti-democratic organization. ACORN has taken advantage of taxpayer dollars to use any means necessary – most certainly including fraud – to register Democrat voters and alter election outcomes.

It’s bad enough that any politician would at ANY point in their political career involve themselves in such a despicable organization, but Barack Obama put the icing on the cake of hypocrisy in 1996.

I wrote an article about Barack Obama’s destruction of popular Democrat Alice Parker – who had in 1994 won the 13th District Barack Obama wanted with 83% of the vote and who would have easily crushed Obama in 1996. The Obama machine cynically challenged every single signature and managed to get her (and every single other Democrat candidate) off the ballot. That was pretty low, even by Chicago standards.

But (and this is a big but) Barack Obama – the same Barack Obama who used hardball tactics to purge the ballot so he would be the only Democrat running in an overwhelmingly Democrat district of an overwhelmingly Democrat city – had spent his previous career with ACORN doing everything he could to prevent that very thing from happening.

I came across this story:

Election ’08: The man who includes being a community organizer on his short resume has a long association with a far-left group that would organize our communities into socialist gulags.

In 1995, Illinois Gov. Jim Edgar balked at implementing the federal motor voter law out of concern that letting people register via postcard and blocking the state from pruning voter rolls might invite vote fraud.

A young lawyer, a community organizer himself, sued on behalf of the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (Acorn) and won. The young lawyer was Barack Obama. Acorn later invited Obama to train its staff.

When Obama served on the board of the Woods Fund for Chicago with Weather Underground terrorist William Ayers, the Woods Fund frequently gave Acorn grants to fund its agenda and voter registration activities.

Acorn has been in the lead in opposing voter ID laws and other efforts to ensure ballot integrity. Acorn has been implicated in voter fraud and bogus registration schemes in Ohio and at least 13 other states. Acorn staffers will presumably be out registering voters again this year.

I remember a scene from a favorite movie, “The Hunt For Red October.” Sean Connery, in his role as defecting Soviet sub Captain Marko Ramius, has a dialogue with the interrogating on board KGB monitor. The subject of another Soviet submarine commander – Captain Tupelov – comes up. And when the KGB monitor says, “I know he descends from aristocracy and that he was your student. It’s rumored he has a special place in his heart for you”, Sean Connery’s Captain Ramius sarcastically says, “There’s little room in Tupolev’s heart for anyone but Tupolev.”

Meet the modern-day real-life Tupolev, Barack Hussein Obama.

He’s the kind of man who will work for a nasty organization like ACORN to organize voters by any means necessary – even suing to block an attempt to prune voter rolls where fraud might be involved – who will at the moment it suits his selfish political ambitions use every tactic imaginable to disenfranchise the very voters he had once registered in order to take out a candidate who would have clearly blown him out of the water in any fair vote.

What a piece of work Obama must be.
