ACORN: Cali-style

“Because if they were liberal, they’d be helping you.”

It’s the gift that keeps on giving and the long national nightmare that never seems to be over for the most infamous of community organizations that organizes communities or something.

First, Baltimore and Washington D.C. then New York and now our two young intrepid documentarians from BigGovernment strike out on a west coast road swing. First stop: San Berdoo!

The pro-forma advise of how to set up a brothel is dispensed with the added benefit from one who’s done it herself. But then we also get a potential murder/manslaughter confession, a threat of physical violence and then a roll call of who’s who of west coast politicians that the ACORN babe has supposedly lobbied.

Standby for more as we cannot imagine they went all the way out to California just to bag one ACORN office. Can there be any doubt that they will be swinging by the East Bay area?

The defenses of the ACORN employees are starting to come in and they are every bit as revealing as these videos reveal the culture of corruption at ACORN.

From NPR which suggests better training for ACORN’s employees but also this gem:

It's also important to keep in mind that ACORN's workers are coming from the same low-income neighborhoods the organization serves, with all that entails -- poor schools, high crime and the sorts of social problems that have been documented for decades.
So the flaws conservatives are pointing out about ACORN are not so much problems associated with that organization per se but more about the problems of being poor and minority in urban America.

There’s a term for this. It’s called soft-bigotry. The women in these videos cannot possibly be expected to possess any moral compass whatsoever because of the environment in which they were raised and still live but somehow “more intensive training” and testing them with ACORN’S own undercover testers to be able to spot the most over-the-top stereo-typical pimp’n’ho sting operation is going to solve things.

Stay tuned.

My favorite is the folks trying to claim the videos are from 2005.

1) Oh, so that makes it all good?
2) Um... dude...look at the girl in the video. Look at the girl on TV. Does she look half a decade older?

2005 means that they can blame Bush.
