With ACORN, the discredited voter registration fraud group, "coming apart at the seams," as ACORN CEO Bertha Lewis announced, it seems Lewis has finally shed her mask and is flying her true colors:
McCarthyism? Jim Crow? Segregation? Japanese internment?
Child's play. ACORN CEO Bertha Lewis says the times people are living in now will "dwarf" all those stains on America's history. And she points to the Tea Party movement -- or "bowel movement," in her words -- as a harbinger of the persecution to come.
"They are coming. And they are coming after you," the embattled head of ACORN said during a talk last month to the Young Democratic Socialists, the youth branch of the Democratic Socialists, the U.S. branch of the Socialist International.
During the address, Lewis praised the group's members for calling themselves socialists, and warned that undefined forces are plotting their doom.
"Any group that says, 'I'm young, I'm Democratic, and I'm a socialist,' is all right with me. You know that's no light thing to do -- to actually say, I'm a socialist -- because you guys know right now we are living in a time which is going to dwarf the McCarthy era. It is going to dwarf the internment during World War II. We are right now in a time that is going to dwarf the era of Jim Crow and segregation," Lewis said.
Lewis went on to explain that she wasn't exaggerating -- just look at the Tea Parties, she reasoned.
"This is not rhetoric or hyperbole -- this is real," Lewis said. "This rise of this Tea Party so-called movement -- bowel movement in my estimation -- and this blatant uncovering and ripping off the mask of racism."
The Tea Party movement is worse than Jim Crow ??? Golly gee. Maybe I should rethink my involvement.
Or maybe Bertha Lewis is a socialist, race-baiting, fearmongering loon who couldn't find her backside with both hands.
Hmmm. Let me think.
Yeah. I'll go with the latter. Lewis is a raving loon. Any who agree with her are equally loony.
I'd like to thank the whole gang of fearmongering, race-baiting loons over at MSNBC, along with their many acolytes in the media and the blogosphere, for pushing this phony narrative about the Tea Party movement onto the American people. You have all done a grave disservice to everyone. You must be SOOOO proud of your dishonesty.
So proud, like the little Alinsky-ites you are. We are not fooled. We are onto your game.
And does anyone else find the concept of 'democratic socialists' to be a contradiction in terms ?
