Acorn Update: The Deluge of Hate

In the last presidential debate, John McCain made the stunning assertion that Acorn is “on the verge of maybe perpetrating one of the greatest frauds in voter history.” He also insisted that it “may be destroying the fabric of democracy.”

Well, that sort of incendiary language has consequences — as Acorn has been learning. The group’s Boston and Seattle-area offices were broken into. (They could be simple break-ins, though the timing is noteworthy.) At least one Acorn employee received a death threat.

Acorn has also been receiving some ugly emails and voice mail messages. The liberal group People for the American Way has collected some of them on its website. Warning before you click through: they are not for the faint of heart.

You know what blew me away? How evil and incredibly hateful the things the people say on the voicemail --- so bad that you figure they would be enraged as they were saying it (or sound crazy as h@ll). Instead you hear these people speaking in a fairly even tone....
