Fox News: The ACORN Thugocracy
"And these are the thugs who are going to conduct our census in an impartial way ? Yeh Right !"
The intimidation by police of a woman at a public event because she didn’t support Big Government healthcare “is a glimpse of our future,” Glenn Beck said Monday.
Beck reported that at a healthcare rally organized by the Democratic Party’s “Organizing for America” arm in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, ACORN directed police to silence a woman who disagreed with President Obama’s socialist healthcare scheme.
Beck interviewed blogger Stacy Nason (breakdownofamerica.com) who showed up at what she thought was a townhall meeting on healthcare policy. Instead, Nason said a police officer directed by ACORN activists lectured her on whom she could and could not speak with, and told where to stand on the sidewalk. ”It was a blatant diregard for our First Amendment rights,” Nason said.
Beck suggested it made perfect sense that at a rally run by the Democratic Party and overrun with ACORN activists, a dissenter would be silenced:
If you want to understand Barack Obama, you’ve got to think like a community organizer — one that is transforming America into some sort of a thugocracy, and in the process trampling on and erasing our individual rights.
“We’re looking at the future,” said Beck. “This is the kind of thugocracy we’re heading towards.”

Okay, now I’m getting PISSED! This is just one way that the American Dream is being destroyed. Whatever happened to Freedom of Speech? Freedom of Assembly? The right to PEACEFULLY protest? Apparently those rights no longer exist under the Obama administration or when ACORN/COI is around! If this does not ANGER AND INFURIATE YOU, than we are surely lost as a free country!!!

The police officer committed both a constitutional and common law tort. In other words, he used the color of law to violate the civil rights of these citizens.
In trying to enforce a non-existent law he violated their rights under the first and fourteenth amendments, which is also a violation of the 1871 civil rights act.
What does all that mean? It means that the officer is personably liable and can be sued. He is no longer immune. The city is also liable and possibly the security guard If I were thedm, I would sue the living crap out of all them in the most public way possible.
Take a page from Alinsky and use their rules against them.

I’m so pissed about this I can’t see straight. Obviously a trampling of Constitutional rights! We need to know when Acorn has any assembly so we can attend to voice our opinions and exercise our rights.

This is just the beginning. Acorn is going to be Obama’s redshirts to Hitlers brown shirts.
Where is the FBI investigation?
Acorn has been involved in so much questionable activities and yet they continue.

hope this sleeping giant wakes up soon!!! We have been slowly losing our rights for some time now. I don’t understand why our president makes a half hearted attempt at standing by the people of Iran who were dying in the streets for “democracy” Now we cannot even peacefully assemble to debate something that “WILL” effect all of us…. Why is this country any different from any other dictatorship??? Does anyone remember KENT STATE?? Those students were slaughtered! WAKE UP AMERICA!!!

This just shows how racists these acorn people are. I hope and pray that we can clean house in 2012, Obama is a total disaster, his heath care plan will rob people of their hard earned money, I have never trusted this man,or Acorn, and acorn should be fully investigated. They violated Stacys Freedom of speech rights, when she wasn’t doing anything wrong.That police officer should receive some sort of punishment. Thank Goodness for Stacy’s Website, wher people can speak their mind freely
