Hired protesters with the “Black Lives Matter” movement held a sit-in at the offices for the successor group to the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) in Missouri after the group stiffed them.
We know this because some of the protesters haven’t been paid and, now, they are demanding what they were promised. The group – Millennial Activists United – have started a #CutTheCheck hashtag and posted a letter on their blog demanding MORE “cut the checks” to demonstrators. Friend me on Facebook – if you dare. No one turned away.
MORE is the rebranded Missouri branch of the former Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) which filed for bankruptcy in late 2010. That ACORN state chapter reconstituted itself in December 2009 as MORE under orders from ACORN’s national headquarters. President Obama used to work for ACORN and he represented it in court as a lawyer.
The unpaid rent-a-mob operatives complain that MORE stiffed them the same way ACORN did to hired protesters throughout its 40 years of radical left-wing rabble-rousing. The ACORN network’s leadership was always predominantly white while its foot soldiers were mostly non-white, a fact that caused tension within the criminal community organizing outfit.
One of the angry protesters can be observed threatening MORE executive director Jeff Ordower, a bald white man, in a video posted to the Twitter account of @search4swag on May 14 with the hashtag #CutTheCheck.
“We gonna just fuck you up,” she said to Ordower from across a boardroom-style table.
Apparently much of the money raised by MORE didn’t reach the protesters – go figure… Stiffing employees isn’t exactly a recent innovation in the so-called social justice movement. This exploitation of workers by those who loudly posture as crusaders against the exploitation of workers was typical of the since-dissolved National Welfare Rights Organization (NWRO), ACORN’s parent nonprofit.
