Here is a nine minute video of a man named Tim Jones chasing and screaming at three black people at the 9/12 rally. Tim Jones is a right-wing blog folk hero for his heroic actions that day.
Seriously, we cannot actually imagine watching this and cheering on the shrieking old white man. Even if we agreed that ACORN was a terrible criminal organization bent on helping all the prostitutes in the world fill out their taxes while registering illegal immigrant cartoon characters to vote, we would still be incredibly uncomfortable watching Tim Jones scream at a couple fucking kids (one of whom he definitely calls “boy” in his charming Boston accent) and their mother.
The crime of these terrible black people? Selling “Don’t Tread On Me” signs at the 9/12 rally… It’s just too bad they were at the 9/12 rally selling the flags for ACORN, an organization that does not actually send employees to rallies to sell flags.
Crooks & Liars:
“…ACORN is just the new wingnutspeak code for the ‘N’ word. It’s now become an epithet — one you can chase black people around with and accuse them angrily. Just what America needs right now.”
See if you recognize the accent.
