HASH(0xa5174f00) out of 5 stars This book is immensely readable and informative May 10 2011
By mekongdelta69 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Before commenting on the contents of Subversion, I need to say that this book is immensely readable. For a book containing so many documented facts, some people might think that a book like this would be somewhat dry. It is not. You will cut through the first hundred pages faster than Obama and ACORN have been cutting through our country with their socialist agendas. Matthew Vadum said in his book, he could have written 2,000 pages, but chose to make it a reasonable length for readability. I could make this review almost as long as his finished product, but I will also make it a reasonable length for readability.

Are you a straight white conservative Christian or Jewish male American citizen who believes America is the greatest country in the history of the world? Do you value the Constitution, the Bill of Rights and the Declaration of Independence? Do you believe in capitalism, free market economy, equal opportunity (but NOT equal outcome), freedom, lower taxes, smaller government, making it on your own, personal privacy, giving to charities of your OWN choice and not favoring one group of people over another?
Then ACORN does NOT like you.

Do you believe in socialism, government intrusion into every aspect of your life, affirmative action, quotas, set-asides and special rights for every government approved and designated victims groups? Do you believe that indoctrination of your children and grandchildren by academia at every level, left-wing media and entertainment to get them to believe that everything which used to be normal is now abnormal and everything which used to be abnormal is now normal? Do you believe in government, via their minions, such as ACORN, should make you pay for everyone else's health care, `free' housing, `free' food, welfare and a hundred other programs for the `poor,' the `oppressed' and of course, the `children,' while you struggle to keep your family's heads above water? Do you believe the very fabric of this country should be torn down and replaced by some kind of fantasy socialist `utopia,' where the `elites' (who envision `they' know better than `you' how you should run your own lives) rule and you are simply a serf, who is there to do their bidding? Do you believe in your loss of happiness, liberty and freedom? Do you believe in `social justice'? Do you believe in dictatorship?

Do any of these individual and group names ring a bell?:
Barack Obama, Bill Ayers, Bernadine Dohrn, Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Saul Alinsky, Wade Rathke, Students for a Democratic Society (SDS), Weather Underground (WU), the National Welfare Rights Organization, George Wiley, Lynne Stewart, Democratic Socialists of America (DSA), the Congressional Progressive Caucus (CPC), the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC), the Democrat Party, Bertha Lewis, Richard Cloward, Frances Fox Piven, Project Vote, Karl Marx, the (Old and New) Black Panther Party, the Service Employees International Union (SEIU), Jeremiah Wright, Michael Pfleger, Noam Chomsky, Tom Hayden, Cornel West, the New York Times, Al Franken, Kweisi Mfume, Chaka Fattah, Antonio Villaraigosa, Maxine Waters, Paul Begala, Dennis Kucinich, Barney Frank, Pat Leahy, Dick Durbin, Kirsten Gillibrand, Roland Burris, John Kerry, Jerrold Nadler, Deval Patrick, Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, Thomas Menino, Bank of America, Chase Manhattan Bank, Chemical Bank, Maude Hurd, John McCain (yes, really), Charlie Christ, Arnold Schwarzenegger (also yes, really), Ron Dellums, America Coming Together (ACT), the ACLU, the AFL-CIO, the America Federation of Teachers (AFT), the Center for Constitutional Rights (CCR), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, MoveOn, NAACP, National Education Association (NEA), La Raza, George Soros, the Open Society Institute (OSI), Planned Parenthood, Organizing for America (OFA), Rainbow PUSH, Sierra Club, Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), Tides Foundation and Center, and literally hundreds of other names I could list if I had the room.
Would you like to know how all the above (listed or unlisted) are interconnected in some way? Are you interested in knowing where ACORN gets all their millions to fund their radical endeavors (besides your tax dollars)? Would it shock you to know that some of the most prestigious (and far-left) Foundations and Banks (who control hundreds of billions of dollars), either give willingly to ACORN or are extorted and threatened to do so?

Would you like to know the more than 370 groups ACORN controls? Would you like to know their entire history and how their radical tactics have allowed them to co-opt the Democratic Party and worm their way into every corner of the government bureaucracy, right up to and including the Community Organizer In Chief? Would you like to find out just how this criminal organization (and I mean criminal in the literal sense), is the cause of violent riots, sit ins, demonstrations, money laundering, takeovers of buildings and institutions, extortion, racketeering, voter fraud, harassment, intimidation, tax cheating, bullying, assault, treating their own underpaid employees like garbage and all the other ways and means they use to get their way? Ways in which North Korea, Hugo Chavez, Fidel Castro, the Mafia, the drug cartels, organized gangs, Hamas, Hezbollah, Al Qaeda, the Taliban and others would all be proud to include on their resumes.

There is way more enlightening information in this book, just as jaw dropping as the above. Get this book, read it thoroughly, educate yourselves and by the time 2012 rolls around, if you vote for the same guy who's in office now, shame on you, because that means you identify and agree with everything ACORN does. Hopefully, for our country's sake, you will push that lever for anyone besides the current power structure which wants to tear down this country as we've known it since its inception.

HASH(0xa5174f54) out of 5 stars A Must Read! Feb. 28 2013
By Blessed Truth - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book is very well written, and very informative. If you can get through the wordiness, you will come to understand what is presently happening in the USA, and how this all came about. Scary that things have come to this point. This book helps to make sense of who is who, and how they got to where they are, and where they/we are headed.

HASH(0xa517724c) out of 5 stars An incredibly in-depth insight into this particularly malevolent and massive organization Jan. 31 2014
By One Wonders - Published on Amazon.com
Matthew Vadum has done a superb job of presenting the real ACORN. With the expose of some ACORN offices by James O'Keefe and Hannah Giles, ACORN became a household name. And while that story caused a temporary crisis for the group, they have reorganized under different names and have gone right back to business. Vadum traces the groups radical origins and reveals in a way no other researcher has, ACORN's extensive tentacles within our political infrastructure. They have been undermining our nation on many fronts for decades: agitating for destructive minimum wage laws and ever-increasing welfare programs, using voting laws developed by fellow radicals to engage in widespread vote fraud, and most famously, advocating housing policies that ultimately caused the subprime mortgage crisis. ACORN has been at the forefront of most radical left agitation, including the Occupy protests and illegal alien amnesty advocacy. Researchers, columnists and pundits have exposed an arm of the octopus here and there, but Vadum drags out the whole beast. This book is a must-read for anyone interested in understanding how we moved from a stable, wealthy Constitutional Republic to our present point, tottering on the edge of collapse. ACORN was in the middle of it.

HASH(0xa5177330) out of 5 stars Packed with eye-opening information April 28 2015
By Mark Sutter - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed getting in-depth knowledge about Acorn. I thought I previously knew quite a lot about the organization but Vadum exposed the detailed workings and genesis of this group. I was also pleasantly surprised to find such detail about Saul Alinsky as well as Cloward and Piven. I didn't realize the real attempts to subvert our government started 60+ years ago. It is truly frightening to realize that so many of our elected officials are entrenched in the teachings of all of these people. One final note: why the hell didn't the mainstream media do their due diligence before the 2008 election and report on the connections between Obama and Acorn? You probably already know the answer to that.

HASH(0xa5177138) out of 5 stars The most dangerous refuse from Obama/Ayers openly radical days, ... Nov. 16 2015
By Gary Henderson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The most dangerous refuse from Obama/Ayers openly radical days, SEIU, ACORN race war advocates, still there, active in our affairs without the slightest security clearances, paid by American taxpayers, ready to do the disruptive work of dismantling the USA, whatever and wherever they are
