Busload of Crazies to Tour Homes of AIG Executives This Weekend…and ACORN’s behind it

This is extremely disturbing – in fact, of all the news of the past sixty days this I find the most disturbing of all:

Busload of Crazies to Tour Homes of AIG Executives This Weekend

The Connecticut Working Families Party this weekend has organized a bus store that will make stops at Wilton, Connecticut, AIG office as well as the security-patrolled homes of AIG execs who are fearing for their lives.

“We’re going to be peaceful and lawful in everything we do,” said Jon Green, the director of Connecticut Working Families. “I know there’s a lot of anger and a lot of rage about what’s happened. We’re not looking to foment that unnecessarily, but what we want to do is give folks in Bridgeport and Hartford and other parts of Connecticut who are struggling and losing their homes and their jobs and their health insurance an opportunity to see what kinds of lifestyle billions of dollars in credit-default swaps can buy.”

Right, they’re not fomenting rage, they’re just encouraging it. So if you happen to record someone’s address so you can return in the dead of night, it’s not like Working Families told you to! We know we sound paranoid and we really can’t believe we’re actually on the same side as Rush, but this is getting way out of hand.

Here is their schedule:

10AM: Pick up in Hartford
(Working Families Headquarters – 30 Arbor St.)

11AM: Pick up in Bridgeport
(ACORN Offices 2320 Main St.)

Tour and Protest
AIG Financial Products headquarters, executives’ houses.

2:30: Return to Bridgeport
3:30: Return to Hartford

Sweetness & Light checked out the website and here’s what he found

Why a couple of mouse clicks would tell any interested journalist that they were ‘founded’ by none other than ACORN.

From CWF’s website:

Working Families Party Making Inroads

by Scott Whipple (New Britain Herald) Oct. 28th, 2008
Asked about the party’s joint founder, ACORN (The Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now), Dinkin said “while it’s fair to say that ACORN has a role in Working Families, allegations of voter fraud against ACORN are trumped up. At worst, a couple of people who worked for ACORN tried to cheat ACORN and not do their jobs. These people were identified and fired. I’m impressed with what a good operation they run.” …

So it all becomes clear.

The only question is why does ACORN feel the need to hide behind a front group?

Go read Jason Poblete’s post and think about why the AIG sideshow is endangering liberty and the rule of law.

UPDATE
Gerard has more contact information.

Update 2
Ada sent this link to Wikipedia,

The Working Families Party (WFP) is a minor political party in the United States founded in New York in 1998. The party also has chapters in Connecticut, South Carolina, and Oregon, and is working towards establishing itself in Massachusetts and California[1].

New York’s Working Families Party was first organized in 1998 by a coalition of labor unions, ACORN and other community organizations, members of the now-inactive national New Party, and a variety of public interest groups.

Update 3
Moe has a follow-up (which he also posted at Red State) on how the day went.

UPDATE, Sunday 22 March
IBD editorial: Mob Rule In D.C.

The Law: Of all the alarming things going on in Washington these days nothing is as shocking, or disheartening, as the collapse in respect for the rule of law and the Constitution. Just look at the flap over AIG’s bonuses.

    What’s next, Obama people going to people’s houses and making them sign a pledge? Oh wait….

    One of the things that enables this sort of thing is that for decades it has been done without consequences. Of course, that could change.

    Instead of protesting legally binding contracts, these a**holes should be driving their bus past the White House and that domed building at the other end of Pennsylvania Avenue–and protesting the TRILLIONS of dollars of debt being forced on us, our kids, and our unborn grandkids. The AIG bonuses are a trivial diversion.

  5. Cappy Says:

    If we did that to crooked judges and politicians, Obama would declare a militia emergency and hang us all from the yard-arm.

    Maybe this might do some good for the “working” “families” from Hartford: this is what life can look like if you stay in school, work hard, don’t do drugs, don’t have kids at age 15, don’t glamorize the thug culture, go to college, and have a work ethic. Beats living in the hell hole that is Hartford

    Looking at their Facebook pictures, they are, for the most part, just so…..white. And they were forced to go to schools like Duke, Chicago, Yale, and Hampshire. The horror!

  13. Mari Says:

    What’s next is a “summer of discontent.” Riots and lots of political theater.

    If I were these people at AIG, I’d be quitting my job, emptying my 401K (Obama’s gonna take it anyway, eventually) and skipping out to Jamaica, or the Bahamas. I’d home-school my kids from there and let these creatures consume each other.

    America ended in November of 2008.

    Bush was the last American President.

    The coup was done, and no one even realized it.

  14. arbysauce Says:

    The same old nefarious ideology and tactics of Lenin. The only thing to do is vote the radicals and liberals out of office. If we can’t do that things will get ugly. But really, there are way too many decent people in America (with guns, thank God) for the thugs to get very far.

    The key word in “I know there’s a lot of anger and a lot of rage about what’s happened. We’re not looking to foment that unnecessarily” is “unnecessarily”.

    IOW, they are fomenting the rage rage they need to have with a specific objective, an endgame in mind.

    It’s gonna be a long hot summer.

  22. Pat Patterson Says:

    Our side, conservatives, Republicans, et al., are always at a disadvantage in acquiring publicity during these demos. I mean, what’s the fun of filming well-fed middle aged and colorful ski jacket dressed protestors at on the the Tea Partys vs. spittle encrusted proletariat screaming out off beat slogans at reserve police officers. Add in bandana and skinny jean wearing anarchists with backpacks that make sloshing sounds and the journalist has fallen for Lorelei once again.
