U.S. Senate candidate Michelle Nunn partnered with an anti-military, pro-ACORN, pro-Socialist left-wing activist just five years ago as part of progressive plot.
Nunn, then the head of Points of Light, a community organizing outfit, partnered with Miles Rapoport in 2009. The purpose of their partnership was to strategize about using charity for left-wing ends over the next ten years. The revelation of the Rapoport-Nunn alliance is particularly relevant given that Nunn supporters stand accused of voter fraud and that Rapoport supports ACORN.
Rapoport is a former Students for a Democracy member who headed up Demos, an organization funded by George Soros. He nows heads Common Cause, a left-wing political outfit.
Regarding her collaboration with Rapoport, Nunn said:
“I met Miles at an [Independent Sector] gathering focused on creating a vision for the next 10 years for the civic sector,” Nunn said on Points of Light Institute’s website.
The website continued, quoting Nunn:
“‘We spent time developing a vision for enlivening our democracy and we realized how little connectivity or coordination there was between the volunteer service movement and the democracy movement,’ Michelle adds. ‘Together, we believe that we can more powerfully enable individuals to participate through service and citizen engagement to create impact and enliven our democracy.’”
Here is Rapoport pictured with communist leader, Frances Fox Piven, in 2002 at a Democratic Socialists of America conference.
Rapoport was part of the left-wing anti-military organization, Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) which grew into the terrorist organization, the Weather Underground.
Rapoport co-wrote an article with fellow Harvard SDS students condemning the U.S. military and calling for the abolition of ROTC in 1969.
To conclude: President Pusey and the Corporation want ROTC to stay because they support the U.S. military and the policies it carries out; we feel that ROTC must go because we oppose the policies of the United States and we oppose the military that perpetrates them. The lines are clearly drawn; the time to take sides is now.
Rapoport is also skeptical of claims of massive voter fraud and supports the controversial voter organization ACORN.
“Thorough studies of voter fraud in the United States have been done and the universal conclusion of the studies that have been done by us and other people is that the actual incidence of the voters voting under a false name and attempting to register multiple times and to defraud the system is minimal purging on nonexistent,” said Miles Rapaport on ACORN’s behalf at a press conference in Washington in October 2008.
It would be wrong “to use it as an excuse to try to discourage people from registering, to set up barriers with a draconian a voter identification provisions.”
But Nunn allies are accused of voter fraud.
