The Mighty American Oak, Pruned by an ACORN?

The opinions expressed by columnists are their own and do not necessarily represent the views of Townhall.com.

The mighty American oak may soon be pruned down to size. And the “Association of Community Organizers Now”—or ACORN—could accomplish it all. The shift from the seizure of power by violence taught by Comrade Lenin in “The Communist Manifesto” to the seizure of power by the corruption of elections and the constitution taught by Fidel Castro and the Sao Paulo Forum won’t be so hard after all.

Founded on the Cloward/Piven Strategy, the goal of ACORN is the destruction of capitalism through the creation of chaos to overwhelm the system. Fresh off the heels of their stunning success in intimidating banks into offering bad loans, and of nearly destroying the welfare system of New York City by flooding the rolls with new recipients, they have moved on to the voting process.

In the last election, a dozen states pressed charges against ACORN, citing everything from intimidation tactics to voter fraud and embezzlement. How could anyone forget their clever attempt to submit the entire line up of the Dallas Cowboys as newly registered voters, or their legendary submission of thousands of deceased or imaginary persons in identical handwriting?

“I would like for ACORN to be exposed that it is a criminal activity … a criminal enterprise,” said Anita Moncrief, a former employee for the D.C. branch. “What ACORN is doing now is not only taking money from the government but they’re taking money from foundations … pretending to register voters … but what they’re doing is smoke and mirrors … creating chaos at the election offices.”

Recently, the Democratic Secretary of State for Nevada filed charges against ACORN in an effort to “crack down on election offenses.” The allegations of wrongdoing have now spread to some 20 states. So we can be sure they will be stopped, right? No one would allow a group like this to proceed unfettered or gain influence with such a corrupt history … right?

Well, who would bring them to justice? Local officials seem intent on doing that, but ultimately it is the Justice Department who places pressure on law enforcement to pursue certain crimes. So just where does our new attorney general stand on the issue of election corruption? “I think there is a feeling among Republicans that there is a widespread amount of voter fraud out there. I don’t think the statistics actually would substantiate it,” said Eric Holder in 2004. That’s about the time many of us were first hearing of ACORN and it’s antics in New Mexico and Wisconsin and Florida: registering felons in prisons, illegal immigrants and whomever else they could find to pad their roles.

Attorney General Holder knows ACORN well. They are, after all, a sister organization to The American Constitution Society, on whose board he serves along with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Both groups are funded by George Soros, the Hungarian/American leftist bent on the destruction of the American system. One of the stated goals of Soros and the ACS is to deconstruct the American Constitution by 2020.

Potentially protected at Justice by Attorney General Holder, to add insult to injustice, ACORN is further eligible for funding by our tax dollars through the 2009 stimulus bill to the tune of somewhere between 3 and 5 billion dollars.

But how about the president? He surely cannot condone protecting a criminal enterprise bent on corrupting American elections, can he? As a matter of fact, Barack Obama’s campaign paid ACORN $800,000 to register voters in the last election. Early in his career, he was recruited to train its members in “community organizing.” In an appearance at an official event for ACORN in 2008, he was introduced and greeted wildly by the crowd. When asked if he would meet with them within his first 100 days, he replied, “Yes! Before I even get inaugurated, we’re going to be calling all of you in so you can have input into the agenda of the next president of the United States.”

Soon after his election, Barack Obama shifted responsibility for the crucial American Census from the Secretary of Commerce to the White House under the supervision of Rahm Emmanuel. The census helps establish the size of Congressional Districts to determine the number of Congressmen from those districts plus the outcome of the Electoral College, based on population. Incredulously, in March, Obama’s Census Bureau office invited the corrupt ACORN to help count heads in the 2010 census. With the strong suspicion by many that the administration may go back on their stated opposition to sampling, the manipulation of this process could mean as many as 30 new Democratic seats in Congress and a definite inflation of minority and immigrant voters to impact the Electoral College.

That would be an absolute breach of the Constitutional mandate to count every head, but absolutely congruent with the American Constitution Society’s goal to change it. In one fell swoop—or maybe two—the elections could be corrupted and the Constitution ignored.

But bastardizing the election and the census might still not be enough. Leaving no stone unturned, in January Representative Jose Serrano, Democrat from New York, introduced a measure (H.J. Res. 5) to repeal the 22nd Amendment prohibiting a president from serving more than two terms.

President Barack Obama … for life?

With all this careful planning, an ACORN may indeed bring down a mighty oak.
