Update July 25th: More on the Saul Alinsky group Action in Maryland here.
Yesterday the Los Angeles Times recognized, with this story, the success of the Maryland petition drive to get a referendum on the ballot in 2012 to decide whether taxpayers will subsidize illegal alien college tuition.
Quoting Gustavo “Sandinista” Torres (he sounds like the good union thug and Central American communist guerrilla that he was and still is—the Washington Post told us so!):
This is just the beginning of the big fight you’re going to have over the next 12 to 15 months,” said Gustavo Torres, executive director of Casa de Maryland, a Latino and minority rights advocacy group that supports the law. The group expects to raise between $3 million and $5 million for an educational campaign*** it will launch with the help of 25 other organizations, Torres said.
Oooooh, scary! Gee, I wonder how many “kids” Torres and his gang could send to college with $3-$5 million in seed money for a scholarship fund? But that is not what this is about—this is about socialism straight up! And, it’s about getting Democrat voters for Obama and his ilk. The article tells us that the issue will be a “mini-national referendum” as Maryland will be the first state to put the issue directly to voters.
Maryland is the first state to put the tuition question before voters.
I think Republicans will use this issue to try to mobilize voters to the polls,” Stella Rouse, professor of political science at the University of Maryland who specializes in minority politics, said in an email. “How well Democrats [and] immigration advocate groups … can counter-mobilize will showcase a mini-national referendum on this issue similar to what occurred with [Proposition] 8 in California,” which banned same-sex marriage.
Know your enemy! The Industrial Areas Foundation is a Saul Alinsky-created organization that is using (by their own admission) some Christian (religious LEFT) churches for their organizational structure, their moral credibility and their money!
Marylanders are misinformed about the intent and content” of the law, said Bishop Douglas Miles, pastor of Koinonia Baptist Church in Baltimore.
Miles’ church, along with more than 120 other parishes across the state, is part of Maryland’s Industrial Areas Foundation, a robust [LOL! “robust” don’t you just love the media spin?—ed] community-organizing network that supports the law. With 85 member institutions in the state, the network has enough resources to mobilize its members to the polls, said Alisa Glassman, lead organizer of Action in Montgomery, a nonpartisan alliance of 30 congregations and neighborhood organizations in Montgomery County.
Socialist churches in Maryland
Shouldn’t all these churches be truly charitable and give their own funds for immigrant kids of all sorts (not just the illegal alien kids) to go to college instead of advocating the theft of taxpayers money to satisfy their charitable desires—or more simply, they should put their personal money where their mouth is!
Know the enemy! Here are the churches that make up Action in Montgomery (IAF chapter). People in these churches/synagogues/organizations will be working against Maryland taxpayers, these are the churches making up the RELIGIOUS LEFT in Montgomery County. These are the churches that support Gustavo Torres. These are the churches and groups that support socialism and the redistribution of wealth (and thievery!) :

GO HERE to see the PATH member groups and churches (PATH is the Howard County chapter of the Industrial Areas Foundation).
Do you attend one of those churches? Do you know that they, as members of the Industrial Areas Foundation are working toward a POLITICAL AGENDA advocating “socialist change?” Did you all have a vote of the congregation and agree to join the IAF? And, tell me, how do you justify being part of an organization whose founder, Saul Alinsky, dedicated his work to “Lucifer?”
*** As the underdogs, the taxpayers who don’t want to pay for the illegal kids educations, won’t have this kind of money, but will have to wage the battle with sheer principled passion and will.
