What Obama Hath Wrought (Updated: ACORN connection)

Populist rage fueled by the President himself has now entered an area not seen in American politics for generations:

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. Oh, to have fat ladies in high heels clogging up the West Village again.

This is the kind of thing that led to guillotines in France. Having a President who can direct populist rage against any target he chooses is so dangerous I am amazed there hasn't been more written about this.

Democrats in Congress are doing their part by sneering at AIG execs who are in fear of their safety. They better hope that rage does not change direction and heads their way. Somehow, I think they would sing a different tune if that were to happen.



P.W. Dunn emails:

The connection is not merely theoretical. Sweetness and Light points out that ACORN is a co-founder of the Connecticut Working Families Party. This is thuggish behavior by Obama's organization.
