ACORN’s Bertha Lewis: Socialism is the right thing, TEA party is a bowel movement

I’m not sure how relevant the CEO of ACORN is anymore, but at least she’s not hiding her stripes. She attended a Young Democratic Socialists meeting in late March and said we are living in a time – referring to the TEA party movement – that will dwarf the era of Jim Crow and segregation.

It’s not about race you dim-wit. Conservatives and TEA party attendees simply want the federal government to have a smaller, strictly defined role when it comes to running the country. We’ll take care of the rest thank you very much. I’m sick of lefties and socialists – or however they want to describe themselves today – pulling the race card.

Would she care to debate a conservative on real topics? She won’t, she does not have the intellectual muster to keep up with something so basic. Her playbook has one play … calling conservatives racists. As noted in the title, she referred to the TEA parties as a bowel movement. Now that’s an intellectual heavyweight!

Big Government has video from the event. I want to point out the video seems to have been selectively edited, but take it for what it’s worth.


Update: Along with the discussion over at Free Republic, the comments are rolling at Fox Nation too.

    In November when we vote we can only hope to FLUSH her and the entire socialist MOVEMENT out of this great country that affords this TURD the right to speak her treason.

    No suprise Big Bertha Lewis would be a guest of Honor at the Young Democrat Socialist club. I wonder if this you tube Obama fan is a card carrying member of this  den  of thieves….. .

    Bertha, Bertha, you are the scum on the earth. Bertha is a pathological liar! Bertha is one of the devils in our great society right now. Devils always lose, stay strong and will will flush her down the toilet where she belongs. She and her devils are so afraid the the Tea Party and our STRONG VOICE! Their playbook is clear, knock them DOWN; if they bring a knife, we'll being a gun, they will bring big guns too, this is what they are planning! Their agenda is clear, to harm us and shut us up. Be strong people!

    The right to speak does not obviate the right to be an idiot.  She not only plays the race card, she wears it like a sandwich board advertisement!  And she is too gutless to defend her baseless accusations.


    Has accusations of racism become the last refuge of a socialist scoundrel?


    Look at their play book: keep blacks out of the Tea Party via thuggery and peer pressure.  Keep pointing out the lack of blacks in the crowd, a situation they create.  Send liberal stooge reporterettes into the crowd to find honest, brave blacks and insinuate that they should feel threatened.  Launch counter protests with references to the Ku Klux Klan etc.  Fabricate racist attacks against black Congresscritters with no supporting evidence.


    See a pattern here?

    This does not surprise me at all. It is folks like Bertha Lewis and her comments that make it so hard for people who are African American or Latino to join the tea party movement, out of fear being accused of acting white. Plus is Ms. Lewis trying to bring back ACORN?

    Hey Dims, wearing a sandwich board is my gig! LOL Actually when paired with a school bell it's quite an ensemble(and a whole lotta fun!).  Bertha exercising her first amendment right, as many other libs have done with the name-calling, and playing the race-card is soooo last year.  You are spot on Dims though regarding how gutless she comes off–that too is typical of the playbook of the left.  Libs, painting with a broad brush, tend to be bullies–and bullies are cowards.  Personally, I got involved, not because I thought it would be easy, but because I think it's what right. 

    Power to the people-the little people! Enough of this us vs. them baloney–that too is getting rather tedious.

      She is the last person that should be making bowel movement comparisons, because it is obvious that at ACORN, the "feces" all rise to the top!
