As we at SayNoToACORN.com are fighting to help inform you about what you can do to impress upon our local and federal officials to distance themselves from ACORN, the other side — those that support the actions of ACORN — are also organizing. This fact proves that we cannot just sit idly by and hope that things go our way. We must act to make sure our politicians listen to us and defund this criminal organization. We must speak because our opponents definitely are.
Once again, Byron York reports on this story and he finds a webpage trying to cajole our lawmakers into increasing ACORN’s federal funding instead of eliminating it. York finds a site called defoxamerica.com that serves to both attack Fox News and advocate for increased funding for ACORN.
With Congress getting ready to pass a continuing resolution that might — or might not — extend the ban on federal funds for ACORN, there’s a new campaign urging lawmakers to restore federal funding for the community organizing group. The website DeFOX America, which is devoted both to attacking Fox News and defending ACORN, is asking readers to sign a petition urging Congress “to stand up to [Fox’s] McCarthyite tactics by voting against any unconstitutional legislation that singles out specific organizations. This includes the continuing resolution that cuts off Federal support to the national anti-poverty group ACORN.”
This webpage is being funded by an extremist, left-wing Hollywood filmmaker named Robert Greenwald.
So, as we can see, the other side of this issue is not remaining silent. They, too, are urging their lawmakers to action in this case to re-instate funding for ACORN. If we expect to keep the criminal organization ACORN off the government welfare roles, then we MUST speak up.
It is up to YOU to stop this. If you want to keep our tax dollars away from ACORN, act now.
The nature of the intertwined association between government and ACORN is why we ask that you join us and Say NO to ACORN.
Sign the petition and tell Governor Quinn that you want a real investigation to end corruption for good.
