ACORN CEO Praises Socialism, Calls Tea Parties 'Bowel Movements'


Former ACORN head Bertha Lewis told a group of the Young Democratic Socialists on that they should "do everything [they] can" to build their organization, and then insisted that our times are worse than internment under the Japanese and the years of Jim Crow laws (h/t Morgan Richmond at BigGovernment):

Any of these groups that says, "I'm young, I'm Democratic, and I'm a socialist," is okay with me. You know that's no light thing to do -- to actually say, I'm a socialist. You've got to know, actually, we are living in a time that's going to dwarf the McCarthy era. We are living in a time that'll dwarf the internment era of internment during World War II. We are right now in a time that is going to dwarf the era of Jim Crow and segregation.

They are coming and they are coming after you, and they are going to be brutal and oppressive. They've already shown it. ... This is not rhetoric or hyperbole -- this is real. ... This tea party so-called movement -- a bowel-movement in my estimation -- and this blatant uncovering and ripping off the mask of racism...

Bertha's group lost its congressional funding after videos were released depicting actual ACORN workers offering advice on how to hide income from prostitution from the government as well as how to lie to get mortgages. This video demonstrates a contrast to rhetoric about alleged fear-mongering among Tea Party protesters.


  1. Wonder If This Rhetoric Is What Clinton Was Speaking About the Other day. NEVER Heard Such Rhetoric From Tea Party Members, Seems He Can Add Another Organization To His List. I Have Not Heard This Clip Played On State Run Media Yet And Probablly Wont. Wonder If Clinton Will Condemn This Hateful Speech But Once Again He Wont Its That Liberal Thingy " Act Like We Say NOT As WE Do"!

    Has ACORN Changed Its Name Yet For It Can Continue To Get Tax Payers Money For Ileagal Activites Yet? Just Wondering. You Talk About a Bowel Movement With Tax Payers Lewis Would Know.

  2. AL you need to Google Democratic Socialist Party. The Socialist have moved into the Democratic Party under the "progressive name". But now they are coming out of the closet. Socialism is out in the Democratic Party and they aren't ashamed to call themselves "Democratic Socialists". They say that they have come together with the Democratic party.Scary stuff.

  3. Chris Liberals Wont Run Under That Banner Not Because Most Dont Agree With Socialism But Because They Lack The Inners To Run In Election Under That Title! European Socialism Is The Apparent Destination Of This Administration and Im Afraid That Ship Has Sailed But Once Again Citizens Aint Going To Let That Happen!

  4. WTF is up with all this socialism coming out of Washington DC?


Please keep it clean and nice. Thank you for taking the time to post you thought. It means a lot to me that you do this.
