‘This Defies Any Further Explanation’

That’s the caption Larry O’Connor of Breitbart TV supplies for this video of ACORN CEO Bertha Lewis singing “Wal-Mart Sucks” at a mocking “church” event in New York City:

(Via Memeorandum.) Well, you may ask, who is Bertha Lewis? What does Bertha Lewis believe? She spoke during a March meeting of the Young Democratic Socialists:

“Any group that says, ‘I’m young, I’m Democratic, and I’m a socialist,’ is all right with me. You know that’s no light thing to do — to actually say, I’m a socialist — because you guys know right now we are living in a time which is going to dwarf the McCarthy era. It is going to dwarf the internment during World War II. We are right now in a time that is going to dwarf the era of Jim Crow and segregation,” Lewis said.
Lewis went on to explain that she wasn’t exaggerating — just look at the Tea Parties, she reasoned.
“This is not rhetoric or hyperbole — this is real,” Lewis said. “This rise of this Tea Party so-called movement — bowel movement in my estimation — and this blatant uncovering and ripping off the mask of racism.”

So now you know who Bertha Lewis is. Why does the head of ACORN hate Wal-Mart? Matthew Vadum explains at Human Events:

ACORN has always had a special, visceral contempt for Walmart because it is not unionized and hasn’t given money to the in-your-face protest group to make it go away.
