If ACORN was comprised of mostly white people would the Reich be going after it?
The answer is no. After all, Halliburton is, at a minimum, at least a hundred times more corrupt than ACORN ever could be yet the Reich never complains about Halliburton. Halliburton has misused tens of hundreds of millions of taxpayer's money, in fact, more taxpayer money than ACORN has ever received in all its years of operation, yet the Reich thinks that's just a minor matter.

The ONLY reason the Reich, and unfortunately, a few on the left, disparage ACORN is because it is an organization that largely employs and helps African-Americans. There is no other reasonable explanation.

7. Why the sarcasm?
BTW: It's "came," not "come."

3. Kind of O/T, but David Shuster just said the time stamp on those "undercover" videos is 5 years old.
Funny how they're just surfacing NOW and connecting ACORN to Obama.

4. Yeah, because they'd still be signing up black folks to vote and helping them get ahead
but they'd be less foaming at the mouth and totally obsessed.

9. I know a lot of GOPers - they will take anyone they can get
Their problems recruiting minority voters are a big problem for the moderate ones with brains.

12. What Makes You Think...
...they need race as an excuse?

They hate unions; yet unions represent millions of whites.

They hate the poor but millions of whites live in poverty.

Don't focus on symptoms more than the disease.

13. I never said "they need race as an excuse."
I made a limited statement about ACORN. I wasn't doing a thesis on the overwhelming hate that is the Republican Party, I simply made a statement on why the Reich is specifically targeting ACORN.

15. I Hear You
I just think it's sad people choose to live the precious gift of life at the bottom of the abyss.

BTW - I LOVE your avatar. I think I just found my next tatt.

16. NO......
ACORN=BLACK PEOPLE=OBAMA..

Taking down Acorn is taking down Obama. Their brains function quite differently from most of us.

18. Republicans would dearly love to get ACORN out of the voter registration business.
They registered 1.3 million voters in the 2008 election cycle--mostly Democrats. This is the reason why Republicans want to destroy ACORN.
