Do you watch Glenn Beck? He jokes about having ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder) so I hope this post won’t sound like I have it too! He has been doing a series on ACORN recently. Yesterday he examined the complex financial machinations (using our tax dollars!) of the organization and the many tentacles it has in other organizations all seeming to involve Wade Rathke (friend and fellow Weather Underground member with Bill Ayers). I told you previously that Rathke is involved with the SEIU (Service Employees International Union) that is busily organizing Somalis. I have no proof but I bet it’s the SEIU that is training the Muslims at Greeley, CO and Grand Island, NE (new readers, check out our whole category on that topic here) on how to demand religious accomodation at the Swift & Co. meatpackers there.
Anyway, see Glenn Beck’s information on ACORN and watch this clip of Matthew Vadum of the Capital Research Center on yesterday’s program. The most interesting thing I got from Vadum (among many interesting revelations) is that Rathke and company are following the Cloward/Piven Strategy and attempting to flood the system with welfare recipients as a way of bringing chaos, change and ultimately an end to Capitalism. From American Thinker in February:
The Cloward/Piven Strategy is named after Columbia University sociologists Richard Andrew Cloward and Frances Fox Piven. Their goal is to overthrow capitalism by overwhelming the government bureaucracy with entitlement demands. The created crisis provides the impetus to bring about radical political change.
Golly, kind of interesting that George Rupp (IRC head honcho) was President of Columbia Univ. and isn’t that where Obama himself was trained? But, I digress.
So, is that why these volags (supposedly non-profit groups) are advocating to continue to flood America with more impoverished immigrants? Sorry to all of you who work in the refugee field who are in it to truly help the less fortunate. But, I believe this is part of the strategy to “change” America. And, damn! The refugees are just pawns as I said yesterday here. If they aren’t pawns then it makes no rational sense for the Top Ten volags to advocate bringing more and more refugees, and then depositing them on welfare in cities across this country.
I have maintained all along that as Americans generally prospered we were running out of poor people, and thus the immigrants became important fuel for the revolution—the poorer and the angrier the better!
