Investigative journalist Matthew Vadum’s “Subversion Inc. How Obama’s Red Shirts are Still Terrorizing and Ripping Off American Taxpayers,” is a must read for any citizen wanting to understand how America has gone so ‘off the rails.’
How can the world’s most powerful nation be facing huge debts, high unemployment and widespread economic malaise, with no discernible end in sight? Is it all down to bad luck and bi-partisan mismanagement?
Vadum makes a very compelling case that ACORN’s army of redshirted thugs and professional intimidators have played a significant role in America’s economic and political problems.
From fueling the 2008 sub-prime mortgage crisis by blackmailing banks into making foolish loans, to helping to elect hundreds of leftist Democrats to office across the nation, ACORN has been there, creating and manipulating crises, to push the country to the left.
Vadum’s impeccably documented and wittily written book traces ACORN’s humble beginnings from Little Rock, Arkansas in 1972, through nearly four decades, until its peak as the largest leftwing organization in the US.
While hugely damaged by James O’Keefe and Hannah Giles’ ingenious exposes in 2009, ACORN has many powerful friends, so the organization continues to survive in many covert guises today.
Hundreds of US legislators owe their careers to ACORN voter registration drives and campaign workers. As Vadum points out, like Don Corleone in The Godfather, ACORN will come knocking when it wants a favor returned.
Drawing on the Marxist/Mafia tactics of Saul Alinsky and guided by the destructive socialist philosophies of Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven, ACORN has wrought havoc on the US economy and political realm for decades.
The strength of Matthew Vadum’s book is that he does not treat ACORN as a single entity – but rather as a key component of a much wider anti-American movement. ACORN is revealed as both an arm, and a secret police force for the US left.
Matthew Vadum’s very well written book “Subversion Inc.” deserves to be on every American patriot’s bookshelf.
