“We are their Willy Horton for 2009. We are the boogeyman for the right-wing and its echo chambers.”

Ha! Speaking of a “coarsening national dialogue”, how’s this for a desperate play by ACORN’s Bertha Lewis? When you’re caught red-handed and losing all credibility it’s time to dust off the old Leftie playbook, play the race card, and evoke the name of Willie Horton. Surely this tactic (or is it a “strategy”?) is in Obama’s dog-eared copy of Rules for Radicals somewhere. This hilarious response is so filled with paranoid conspiracies it’s positively Trutheresque.
Via Andrew Breitbart’s fabulous new muckraking website, Big Government:
The relentless attacks on ACORN’s members, its staff and the policies and positions we promote are unprecedented. An international entertainment conglomerate, disguising itself as a “news” agency (Fox), has expended millions, if not tens of millions of dollars, in their attempt to destroy the largest community organization of Black, Latino, poor and working class people in the country. It is not coincidence that the most recent attacks have been launched just when health care reform is gaining traction. It is clear they’ve had these tapes for months.
We are their Willy Horton for 2009. We are the boogeyman for the right-wing and its echo chambers. If ACORN did not exist, the right-wing would have needed to create us in order to achieve their agenda, their missions, their ideal, retrograde America. This recent scam, which was attempted in San Diego, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, Philadelphia to name a few places, had failed for months before the results we’ve all recently seen. I am appalled and angry; I cannot and I will not defend the actions of the workers depicted in the video, who have since been terminated. But it is clear that the videos are doctored, edited, and in no way the result of the fabricated story being portrayed by conservative activist “filmmaker” O’Keefe and his partner in crime. And, in fact, a crime it was – our lawyers believe a felony – and we will be taking legal action against Fox and their co-conspirators….
More hysterics from Bertha Lewis here.
Earth to Bertha: Fox had nothing to do with it. Their role was merely to do what the rest of the MSM failed to do, and report on the blockbuster story. But hey, knock yourself out and waste a few more dollars that your organization scams from taxpayers by trying to sue Fox. What’s a few thousand more when billions are earmarked in the Porkulus for your corrupt crime syndicate (staffed by oh- so-sweet domestic terrorist sympathizers)?
Ixnay that Willie Horton thingy.
