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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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!

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 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.

I posted this on the other thread, which has since been locked:


The video does not say that ACORN was FOUNDED by Ayers. It says it was funded by Ayers & Obama through their foundations. Both of these threads have factually incorrect titles and they make us look... well, not smart.

Post #23, from the person who made the video, on (this) thread:

I don’t 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.


We need both titles fixed ASAP. "FOUNDED" to "FUNDED". People are blaming the video for this now and it DOESN'T STATE THIS. This appears to be coming from the HRC forum/HRC supporters, and they are wrong.

Just copy the link from your address line and put it on all Obama threads that are here and type in the title. It's important to keep one thread on the top of breaking news. Other threads on the same subject might not be permitted anyway.

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.

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.

Not to worry. Jerome Corsi who was held in Kenya is purchasing radio and tv ad buys to expose Barack Obama and Rail Odinga. For some reason, all media is avoiding the Odinga problem. Odinga killed a thousand people when he lost an election, burnt churches to the ground with people inside, his supporters used machetes on the Christians.

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.

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:

my.barackobama.com/page/community/blog/billhawkins

It’s just a feeling I have.

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?

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. That’s what I did for three and half years before I went to law school. That’s the reason I moved to Chicago was to organize. “

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2109068/posts

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
