Wade Rathke, the America-hating 1960s radical who founded ACORN, has a deliciously ironic post up on his Chief Organizer blog.
It’s titled Springfield Story: Do We Learn from Disasters? In it this terrorism-loving agitator bemoans the foreclosure rate in Springfield, Mass., and praises one of the men who helped to cause it, Congressman Barney Frank (D-Mass.), calling the corrupt lawmaker –incredibly enough– a “banking expert and one-man accountability squad.”
What ACORN’s real life Doctor Evil doesn’t say is that he caused a disaster in Springfield years ago.
Rathke caused a riot in Springfield in order to advance his small-c communist objectives.
As I explain in my book Subversion Inc: How Obama’s ACORN Red Shirts are Still Terrorizing and Ripping Off American Taxpayers (WND Books),
Rathke was arrested after he led an invasion of the Springfield welfare office with 250 or more women and students armed with signs reading “More for the poor, less for the war.”
After the welfare director refused to give in to the crowd’s demands for winter clothing benefits they were not entitled to, Rathke’s members rioted. Millions of dollars’ worth of property was destroyed over two days of unrest.
The Soviet government used Rathke’s riot as anti-American propaganda, publishing an article about it in Pravda. Rathke’s experiences “reinforced his belief that one important resource for poor people was their ability to disrupt.” He realized that despite the failure of the action to achieve its objective, his followers felt empowered by violence directed against the system. This empowerment by rioting became a staple of ACORN’s playbook.
Along with all of ACORN’s leaders, Rathke belongs in jail.
If only we didn’t have a president who was part of the problem.

America needs to know that ACORN is restructuring in time to help re-elect President Obama in 2012.
Obama used to work for ACORN and represented the group in court as its lawyer. These radical leftists who use the brutal, in-your-face, pressure tactics of Saul Alinsky want to destroy America as we know it and will use any means to do it.
