Skip to comments.Barack, William Ayers, and ACORN video (MUST SEE -- ACORN was funded by Ayers, etc)

Obama, Ayers, and ACORN
This is a lengthy (10 mins), but very important video. Please watch it to the end and share it. One item that is revealed is that ACORN was FOUNDED by WILLIAM AYERS with a fellow SDS alum and Communist Party leader, Michael Klonsky.
That was a great video. I’m passing it along. Thanks!
Yep...Thank God for Free Republic and our awesome and patriotic band of FREEPERS! (like you)
Thanks for all you do!
Just looked at your home page where it says “Personal Responsibility: 50% Conservative, 50% Liberal”. It must be the 50% liberal side that you don’t have the attention span to watch a very important 10 minute video to see how it all ties together. You must be the kind of person who reads the 1st chapter of a book and then puts it down because the whole plot isn’t revealed in the 1st couple of paragraphs.
Thank you for all your efforts.
McCain campaign needs to qualify Ayers as a “domestic terrorist”. What Obama is implying is to claim the terrorist charge is being branded at him because of his background and name. We know that’s absurd but to the ignorant masses who know nothing about Ayers some may buy it. McCain camp would be well served to better explain who Ayers is, how its relates to Acorn, etc. They have two weeks
find later bump
Dot’s connected BUMP!
I’ve listened to the video twice and don’t find reference to Ayers being a co-founder of ACORN. I find the reference to his associate Wade Rathke being the founder of ACORN.
I’ve no doubt of Ayers involvement and support of ACORN- but haven’t found documentation anywhere of his being a co-founder.
This is absolutely chilling! It’s going out to my entire address book.
Bookmark and BTTT.
Bill Ayers, “over throwing the Capitalist System, and put in something more humane”
Actually that is not the case. I don’t have a lot of free time and I needed this to get to the point fairly soon. I just worry that the people that really need to see this will not have the patience to see it through. The meat of the issue needs to be moved forward. Maybe if it started with that and then showed how we got there it might have kept my interest.
Please distribute this video!
BINGO. You nailed it.
My point still stands. I can’t believe that you don’t have 10 minutes to view something so important to the freedom of our republic. I’m sure that you waste more than 10 minutes in a day. Take 10 minutes from your FReeping to educate yourself so that you can share it with others - it’s worth it!
To paraphrase b.hussein....Please Re-distribute this video"
That's correct. Ayers was not the founder of ACORN. He funded ACORN at CAC and at Woods, both with Obama. And both ACORN and the Weathermen were born out of the ultra-militant SDS. But Ayers is not the founder of ACORN.
The title of the thread should be changed from "FOUNDED" to "FUNDED".
The graphics are okay.
But that insipid music makes it unbearable.
You don’t want to email this to your friends.
Sorry. I reclicked on it and watched the whole thing.
Yes. It is good. Especially the stuff about ACORN.
The problem is not whether I have 10 minutes. I am already a believer. This video will not change my mind, but for those who’s mind we are trying to change, it is a snoozer at the beginning. That is all I am saying.
A 527 needs to buy a 10 min slot of national news networks and show this
well put together damaging insightful video
Post #23, from the person who made the video, on (this) thread:
I dont think the video says ACORN was founded by Ayers... I think it says that ACORN and Weather Underground were both formed out of SDS...
Correct. Ayers and Rathke were SDS members together. Ayers former WUO in 1968, Rathke formed ACORN in 1970. Both groups are breakaways from Students for a Democratic Society.
Ayers and Obama helped finance ACORN together at the Annenberg Challenge, then again at the Woods Fund.
Klonsky, another SDS'er, received Annenberg grants from Obama/Ayers for a different project, the Small Schools Workshop (which was also created by Ayers; Klonsky was pulled from his job as a cab driver to run Small Schools).
Also, until very recently, Klonsky ran a blog on Obama's official website until the campaign scrubbed it.
One big happy Hyde Park family.
I sent a ping to the mods, also and actually filed an abuse report to see if they could correct the title.
I liked the music and thought it added dramatic impact...and mailed it to all my friends.
THANK YOU for fixing the title...
BTTT for McCain-Palin.
However, in 1992 Obama and Michelle founded Public Allies which was the merger of the Black Liberation Army and the radical leftists including Bill Ayers. Note Obama never talks about Public Allies.
Floriduh fraudulent voters!
Acorn has the education branch of ACORN. That’s where Ayers slunk around.
Barack Obama founded Public Allies. He told members “shun the money culture”. That means everybody but his elitist herd. Michelle was on Public Allies too. She said some very red things herself. They are commies.
Forget Ayers when Odinga becomes a household name.
Rathke are two people - brothers. One was an embezzler of one million dollars (what else but tax dollars?) There’s Wayne and his brother who I can’t remember his first name right now.
Obama funneled so many millions to Ayers. How is that not a big problem for Obama? He handed our tax dollars to an unrepentent terrorist and he didn’t do that when he was 8 years old. Ayers started the pledge of allegiance to the world but forget America. Ayers hates America so why did Barack have anything to do with Ayers? He hates America too and gee, would Barack Obama like to change the world and in a bad way.
Once again...FREEP DRUDGEREPORT (lower right “SEND NEWS TIPS TO DRUDGE”)
I liked the closing Obama comment about the acorn not falling far from the tree. Saw on tv when he said that at a rally, glad it was put to good use in the video, he will regret having said it!
Anyone can easily and quickly get a blog at BHO’s site, so unless there’s something else that doesn’t mean that much.
I very strongly suspect that these are not from BHO supporters:
It’s just a feeling I have.
“His problem is that he doesnt know that he is a mere stooge.”
Oh yes he does.
- Barack Hussein Obama -
We need a good ad showing where BHO’s money and support comes from.
I’m thinking Soros, Mansour, Quadaffi, Hamas etc.
Anyone have a good list of these characters with succinct details? Granted most normal
people have no idea of these connections but now is the time to educate.
Remember that 44% won’t care and think with their head in the sand. These are the unreachables who get their ‘news’ from MSM.
So, if our side already knows and is also 44% or so, the this stuff neads to reach the 6%.
Are 527s or the Mac campaign gonna touch on this in the last 14 days?
I don’t know the answer, but really don’t think these 6% watch Hannity, but may watch Greta. They are mushy folks, mostly PBSers, etc.
I hope we can reach them, and emailing the to challenge their openmindedness may work.
Otherwise, we’re wasting efforts.
Can anyone describe any local ads in the battleground states that are targeting this 6% block and are hammering home the items Mac leaves out of the debates?
Front Man? I would say he is Billy Ayers Puppet.
I think you are right about his mentoring by Commie Davis and was it not his grandfather that put the two together? I seem to believe I read that someplace..In any event, it goes to Obama’s impressionable years in Hawaii.
OBAMA: “I come out of a grassroots organizing background. Thats what I did for three and half years before I went to law school. Thats the reason I moved to Chicago was to organize.
We were discussing why Obama went to Chicago the other day. The discussion didn’t go far when it was suggested he went for school. According to this statement,that isn’t so.
WHY DID BARAK OBAMA GO TO CHICAGO? WHO SENT HIM? WHO WAS WAITING FOR HIM?
His Hawaiian mentor FRANK MARSHALL DAVIS was previously active in Chicago. It isn’t difficult to believe Obama went to Chicago to join Ayers because of Davis’s teachings and associations.
What Bill Ayers saw in Barack Obama
