Zak is author of Back to Basics for the Republican Party.
Here is an excerpt from a post of his on my book:
Matthew Vadum has described it as a “brilliantly orchestrated criminal organization” that is “part political group, part crime syndicate, part terrorist organization.” Banks and other corporations have paid it billions of dollars in protection money, while the government pays it billions more. Law enforcement cannot keep track of its opaque, endlessly shifting, illicit operations. Anyone who gets in the way is subject to “thuggish tactics.” Nice business you got here. Would be a shame if a flash mob attacked it at, say, 10am tomorrow morning.America needs to know that ACORN is restructuring in time to help re-elect President Obama in 2012. Obama used to work for ACORN and represented the group in court as its lawyer. These radical leftists who use the brutal, in-your-face, Machiavellian pressure tactics of Saul Alinsky want to destroy America as we know it and will use any means to do it.
This is not the Mafia, but an organization just as insidious, the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, known as ACORN. These “modern-day pirates” helped make Barack Obama the 44th President of the United States. Wait, it gets worse. The Obama administration is setting up what Michael Barone termed “gangster government.” You now being governed Mafia-style, with business shakedowns and disregard for the law, cronies being enriched while opponents are crushed.
As the song goes, “You may ask yourself, well, how did I get here?” Vadum's new book, Subversion, Inc.: How Obama's ACORN Red Shirts are Still Terrorizing and Ripping Off American Taxpayers, answers that question.
Saul Alinsky, godfather of community organizers, learned his craft from Chicago gangland organizers. During the 1930s, he became an associate of Al Capone's chief hitman, who introduced him to Frank Nitti.
No surprise that Alinsky became, in Vadum's words, "a pragmatic, businesslike gangster," whose rhetoric is permeated with violent imagery. [...]
