Heh, this is quote of the day. ACORN is filing suit, claiming…
“While everyone, including them, agrees that some of the things they said were dumb, in Maryland we have a right to say dumb things in the privacy of our homes and offices without fear of being taped and without fear of being splashed all over the Internet.”
Remember, by “dumb” they mean “endorsing enslavement of underage girls for sexual purposes”.
Oh, and here’s a bit of satire on the ACORN stings.
It was quite surprising to see how O’Keefe and Giles — dressed in ridiculous outfits that shouldn’t have fooled anyone and having such over-the-top horrible intentions like underage prostitution — were able to get so much friendly help from so many different ACORN offices. But after that success they kept trying again with even more ridiculous costumes and evil intentions to see if there was anything that ACORN would not approve.
Here are their results:
The Sting: O’Keefe and Giles, along with a Pekingese and a Chihuahua dressed up as pit bulls, approached an ACORN office for advice on getting a place large enough to house a dogfighting ring. They also asked if the community would be likely to call the cops on them if they started stealing puppies from children.
The Result: The staffer seemed unfazed and only asked if they’d be willing to pass out literature on Democratic candidates during their exhibitions.
The Sting: O’Keefe and Giles dressed up as hardened drug dealers and contacted an ACORN office for help finding a place to set up a meth lab. They also specified that they wanted it to be near an elementary school so they wouldn’t have to travel far for sales.
The Result: They were turned away, and the ACORN employee told them ACORN had already helped set up numerous meth labs near the elementary schools and the community just couldn’t support any more competition in that area.
The Sting: O’Keefe and Giles dressed up as Charles Manson and Squeaky Fromme and asked for help finding a place where they wouldn’t have to worry about anyone hearing screams from the basement.
The Result: They were advised to not list their occupation as “psychotic killers intent on causing apocalyptic race war” and instead use “performance artists.”
