No surprise, welfare use is up

The Wall Street Journal reported this not surprising story  yesterday.  I’m linking it here because it includes a good summary of many of the welfare programs refugees are eligible for, and I wanted to have it handy if I needed it.   I see our home state of Maryland is a hot state for welfare usage.

The Cloward-Piven strategy and why we need the poor and angry immigrants.

Cloward would be so proud if he were alive and surely Piven is proud to see their theory so close to fruition.  They esposed overloading the welfare system with the poor as a means of tearing down our government.   Robert Chandler writing in the Washington Times last fall.

Developed in the mid-1960s by two Columbia University sociologists, Andrew Cloward and Frances Fox Piven, much of their strategy was drawn from Saul Alinsky, Chicago’s notorious revolutionary Marxist community organizer. The   Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN)* succeeded the National Welfare Rights Organization in the execution of the Cloward-Piven grand tactics of using the poor as cannon fodder to tear down the capitalist system. It was low-income, mostly black and Hispanic people, who were used by ACORN guerrillas to take subprime toxic mortgages.

* Of course we have just learned that ACORN has changed its name, here.

This post is filed in our Where to find information category but also appropriately in Community destabilization and Obama.   If you are a new reader and want to get an understanding of Obama/Saul Alinsky and Community organizing, I recommend you begin reading our community destabilization posts.    Makes me wonder if all those angry Iraqi refugees we have been writing about are filling a critical role for the advocates of “change.”
