Occupy Wall Street Was Organized From Day One by SEIU / ACORN Front – The Working Family Party

The ACORN front group Working Families Party has placed an ad on Craig’s List for “direct action” workers who will be paid $350 to $650 a week to “hold Wall Street accountable.” “Through direct action you will be shaping NY state politics for the next 20 years.” Here one of their workers describes how she was in on the organizing of Occupy Wall Street.

The job also offers travel (will they bus you to other protests around the country?) and an opportunity for advancement (do you have to defecate on police cars?).

Discover the Networks has the history on the Working Families Party:

WFP is a coalition founded by ACORN, the Communications Workers of America, and the United Automobile Workers. However, ACORN clearly dominates the coalition. New York ACORN leader Steven Kest was the moving force in forming the party. WFP headquarters  is located at the same address as ACORN’s national office, at 88 Third Avenue in Brooklyn.

“The [Working Families Party] was created in 1998 to help push the Democratic Party toward the left,” noted the Associated Press on March 28, 2000. In pursuit of this goal, WFP runs radical candidates in state and local elections. Generally, WFP candidates conceal their extremism beneath a veneer of populist rhetoric, promoting bread-and-butter issues designed to appeal to union workers and other blue-collar voters, Republican and Democrat alike.


The Soros-funded Drug Policy Alliance – a drug legalization lobby through which Soros often funnels political contributions – gave $81,500 to the Soares campaign. Instead of donating the money directly, however, the Drug Policy Alliance laundered Soros’ contribution through the Working Families Party – an illegal act. New York State law bars one party from funding another party’s candidate. In this case, however, authorities have shown no interest in disciplining either Soros or the Working Families Party.

As far back as the 2000 election Working Families Party was creating class warfare and vilifying Wall Street:

Before an audience packed with card-carrying members from WFP union affiliates SEIU, AFSCME, CWA, UAW, UNITE and many more, leftwing Texas activist Jim Hightower drew applause with such lines as, “They say Wall Street is whizzing. Well, yeah, it’s whizzing on you and me. Let’s call it exactly what it is – it’s class war.” After receiving WFP’s endorsement, Hillary vowed to wage a “people’s grassroots campaign.” – Discover the Networks
