Trend?: One Of Occupy Boston Founding Organizations Is ACORN Offshoot; Another Has Communist Roots



Last week I exposed how the Occupy St. Louis movement has been hijacked by an offshoot of the former corrupt organization ACORN, the offshoot is named Missourians Organizing for Reform and Empowerment (MORE). While taking over Occupy St. Louis MORE outed the original Grass Roots organizers and when one tried to expose the takeover to the world she was given death threats for her trouble.

But it would seem that the Occupy St. Louis movement isn't the only one with ACORN ties. According to an article on Judical Watch.org, another ACORN offshoot got ahead of Grass Roots organizers and helped jump start the Occupy Boston Movement:

"Among the goals is to get major banks to stop preying on the poor and people of color, according to the organizer of a Boston offshoot of an Occupy Wall Street rally. The event, promoted as Take Back Boston, was organized by dozens of local community groups that claim big banks have a pattern of pushing “bad loans on people of color and the poor.” As a result of the “predatory lending,” foreclosures have skyrocketed in urban communities, the organizers say.

Among the Take Back Boston organizers is a spinoff of the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN). Amid a massive fraud scandal and a series of criminal probes, ACORN supposedly dismantled but the reality is that it simply changed its name. In fact, Judicial Watch recently published a special report (“The Rebranding of ACORN”) about the organization’s transformation into various spinoffs and affiliated groups.

In this particular case, ACORN’s Boston office simply rebranded into New England United 4 Justice. Same crooked group with the same general mission and president, but a different name. Headed by Maude Hurd, the former president of ACORN and ACORN Housing, New England United 4 Justice promotes “social justice” for “low and moderate income families.” The group also seeks to educate the general public about social justice issues and the needs of poor and middle class families."


According to the 'Take Back Boston Coalition' page, Judicalwatch.org is entirely correct, New England United for Justice is indeed on the list of organizers. As a matter of fact, the 'Coalition' that makes up 'Take Back Boston' is comprised of a literal who's who of supporters for the Progressive Establishment including SEIU, the CWA, the Green Justice Coalition and an organization that has Communist Party USA (CPUSA) roots called the Chinese Progressive Association (CPA).

According to the CPA website, the History of the organization only goes back as far as the 1960's and 1970's but as it explains the CPA was shaped from the Chinese Workers Mutual Aid Association (CWMAA) which was an organization spawned in the 1930's.

And according to a book called, "Wicked Theory Naked Practice", the CWMAA was used by the CPUSA to indoctrinate Chinese immigrants:

"During it's heyday in the 1930's, the CPUSA had more than a dozen different daily language newspapers, including Chinese, aimed at spreading Leftist influence among the many immigrant groups in an attempt to organize. APA Communist organizers were developed and emerged on both coasts. They included immigrant workers who were also writers and poets, including Happy Gim Fu Lim, Secretary of the CWMAA in San Francisco; Ben Fee President of the CWMAA and later the first Chinese organizer for the Ladies Garment Workers Union in New York City..." ---"Wicked Theory Naked Practice" page 260

So is it surprising that we see a Trend as yet another Occupy Protest has been co-opted by the supporters of the Progressive establishment including one organization with Communist roots?

No..

Because it would seem that the Political establishment on both sides of the fence fear one thing more than anything else...

A Real Grassroots Movement that might actually hold them accountable and expose their corruption to the world.
