ACORN and Democrats – the real racists
Liberals love to cry racism whenever things don't go their way. They like to portray the Republican Party as a bunch of racist old white men who hate minorities. Certainly Democrats would never back an organization that oppresses minorities.
Let's look at ACORN for a minute. ACORN is an organization the left loves to point to as an example of how "community organizing" can really lift a community and help minorities rise up and lead a better life. ACORN was founded by a couple wealthy white guys, Dale and Wade Rathke. Wade Rathke stepped down from his post at ACORN a couple years ago, but not before he "allegedly" embezzled a few million dollars. That's money that should have been going to the underprivileged minorities ACORN was supposed to be helping. Where was the outrage from Democrats and black community leaders? Why is Fox News the only place you can hear about this? Wade went on to found the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) so he can continue his work with the underprivileged.
Dale Rathke continues the dream with his work at ACORN. Here's what ACORN has done to lift up the underprivileged. ACORN sued the state of California in an effort to prevent having to pay their employees minimum wage. They attempted to block their employees from forming a union (there's some irony). When their employees have been charged with criminal activities, ACORN usually immediately fires them and disavows any knowledge of the activity. This is usually followed with a public condemnation of the "rogue employees". How many white employees have you seen ACORN fire? How many Democrats have asked a single question about this fact?
