More ACORN Stings

Frank J. writing at PJ Media reports the previously untold stories. Here’s a sample:

“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 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.”

He’s kidding … but it’s getting harder and harder to tell these days.

  1. […] and the community just couldn’t support any more competition in that area.

    I love the way that he incorporated this bit of liberal nonsense into the whole thing. Like there is a problem if a situation develops with lots of competition.

  2. Little known fact: Acorn wasn’t going to fall for the sting until O’Keefe hit them with a zinger: “Not only are you a cheat, you’re a gutless cheat as well.”

    That, and the Scott Joplin music playing in the background.

  3. You’re sure that he’s kidding, right? I mean… you’re really completely sure?

  4. I used to go to The Onion for some comic relief, but now I just read the straight news. It’s pretty crazy these last several months. I laugh a lot.

    Of course, I cry a lot too. And I cut my hair very short to keep me from pulling it out.

  5. ACORN is now suing Breitbart, Giles, and O’Keefe. It will be interesting to watch the outcome of that.

  7. You know, I was thinking just the other day, if SNL were really an equal-opportunity hit-job factory, imagine what they would be doing with this. They could bring out all their best old stuff. I’m thinking Land Shark, people. Land Shark showing up at an ACORN office. The Killer Bees. Emily Littella. Roseanne Roseannadanna. All trying to get housing or register to vote or start a scam business. These folks would obviously fall for it.
