ACORN is a profoundly antisocial organization. It celebrates and promotes the worst pathologies in society in an effort to kill the American experiment in self-governance.
The small-c communist organization was created not to help people, but to hurt them. Growing out of the now-defunct National Welfare Rights Organization (NWRO), ACORN was created to get people to go on welfare.
The group came out of the so-called welfare rights movement led by radical anti-American activists Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven. Cloward died in 2001 but Piven still teaches at CUNY and advocates violence as a tool of revolutionary political change.
Getting Americans dependent on welfare and feeling desperate and angry is what ACORN is all about. To the community organizer, violent welfare riots are a legitimate way of bringing about change.
