It’s probably time for Barack Obama to start worrying about 2012. Looks like his campaign machine is finally falling apart. First, his former employer and legal client was busted offering advice on child prostitution and human trafficking along with helpful tips on tax evasion… and now this.
On the second floor of an old building in South Oklahoma City “Little Mexico” neighborhood, there is a room that until recently, housed a branch of ACORN (Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now), a low-income advocacy organization known for left-wing activism, rabble-rousing and – shockingly – voter registration fraud.
Left hurriedly and in a shambles, the small office, coated in a layer of plaster dust, still housed computers, documents, registration forms, I-9 employment info and boxes with an IRS return address and others with a return address for an ACORN office in New Orleans.
What was discovered in those documents shouldn’t come as any surprise.
ACORN, which receives millions in federal dollars for voter registration, cannot legally support one party. However, internal documents show ACORN “targeted” state legislative districts in 2007 and 2008, leading up to the presidential election.
ACORN always lamely claimed to be “non-partisan”, but you’d have to be braindead to believe they actually were. (Of course, if you’re braindead, you probably worked for or supported them at some point anyway)
The documents read like a combination of Obama campaign strategy memos and chapters straight from Marxist Saul Alinsky’s book Rules for Radicals. (It’s not really a coincidence the two would sound similar)
One section is termed “a five-year plan to obtain power” (remember, Chapter 1 in Alinksy’s Rules states, “In this book we are concerned with how to create mass organizations to seize power…”). And community organizing is key to this strategy… surprise, surprise.
Therefore, the route to power is twofold: First, build powerful city organizations in Oklahoma City and Tulsa that can control these municipalities. Second, become an influential organization by shaping a handful of strategic legislative districts that, by themselves, can change who controls the state legislature.
(W)e will be seen as the force that is making Oklahoma a progressive state in the way that it was 100 years ago.
Under a subsection titled “Politics and Elections,” in 2007 and 2008, ACORN was looking to take over State Senate District 43, which they referred to as “the biggest prize,” in hopes of unseating Republican Sen. Jim Reynolds. And then there’s this…
Those internal documents include a sheet titled “Canvass recruitment rap,” a “script,” directed towards ACORN activists in Houston which says: “Hi, my name is ____. We are hiring Outreach Workers to remind people to get out and vote for Barack Obama in the upcoming election. One of our team members spoke to you today and you signed up for our intake tomorrow. You are interested in working with us on this important election, correct? … We’re hiring for people to go door to door talking to registered voters in Houston to get out the vote for Barack.”
So basically, if you paid your taxes last year, you helped fund Barack Obama’s campaign. That ought to give you a tingle up your leg.
No wonder they’re so anxious to raise taxes. To them, it’s just campaign fundraising.1fa2
