Long before the nation was talking about the deep state, one bold young woman was busy pulling it up by the roots. Her story is now a movie.
ACORN. Remember that name? They are the disgraced organization of ‘Community Activists’ that found itself in a firestorm of controversy that resulted in the entire corrupt organization going bankrupt.
And one intrepid woman’s big idea took them down. Welcome to the age of citizen-journalism. It’s what happens when the so-called ‘real’ media abandon their post.
Watch the trailer:
For 40 years, the controversial community organizing group ACORN sought to empower marginalized communities. Its critics, though, believed ACORN exemplified everything wrong with liberal ideals, promoting government waste and ineffective activism. These competing perceptions exploded on the national stage in 2009, just as Barack Obama became president. Fueled by a YouTube video made by undercover journalists, ACORN’s very existence would be challenged. ACORN and the Firestorm goes beyond the 24-hour news cycle and cuts to the heart of the great political divide.
The film unfolds through the perspectives of then-student Hannah Giles and Lewis, two women on opposite sides of the political spectrum, as well as through the eyes of ACORN staff, to tell the story of a firestorm set off a polarizing media frenzy that set the tone for elections to come.
Here’s what her proud dad, ClashDaily’s own big dawg Doug Giles had to say about it…
In 2009, my daughter Hannah Giles conceived and executed a video sting into Obama’s claim to fame, ACORN. She caught them in multiple locations across the U.S. more than willing to give home loans for whorehouses for underaged sex-slaves from El Salvador and several other horrendous crimes. Her explosive videos decimated them and rocked our political landscape. The Tribeca/Sundance movie about her investigation airs tonight on PBS. The following is from Hannah…
‘Hi everyone! The Sundance/Tribeca documentary I am featured in is finally making its broadcast premier on PBS tonight at 10pm et/9pm ct. I participated in the film because I knew it would be the version of history that everyone remembers over the next 100yrs. The film is fair to me & provides a lot of insight into my story, and that has left my detractors pretty upset. I want my supporters to watch this in order to see and understand the power of community organizing, and see how effective that model was for ACORN specifically. I am impressed with how the film makers were able to pull together about 40yrs of American political history into 80mins. I also think its worth a viewing just to see Bertha Lewis and I sit down together at the end.
Let me know what you think!
If you can’t catch it tonight, online streaming begins May 22 on PBS, and the film is available for download on iTunes.’
Don’t miss it tonight on PBS:
As a bit of a taste for what you’re in for, here’s an interview she did with (a much younger) Greg Gutfeld when he was still on Red Eye.
There are still Goliaths in this world that need slaying.
And she’s proof that it can still be done.
Here dad literally wrote the book on how the rest of us can go out there and punch above our weight in society, and take down the giants that need to be dealt with.
Get Doug Giles’ new book:
Rules For Radical Christians is not a survival devotional designed to help the young Christian adult limp through life. Rather, it is a road-tested, dominion blueprint that will equip the young adult with leadership skills and sufficient motivation to rise to a place of influence in an overtly non-Christian culture. Rules For Radical Christians gives the reader the keys to become strategically equipped to move into an anti-theistic environment and effectively influence it for the glory of God.
In fact the entire family breathes a culture of victory, not victimhood. Her sister wrote this badass book, too.
Here’s a brand new book on how to be a Warrior Chick by Regis Giles — daughter of our very own Doug Giles:
From the book:
Do I want this to be happening? Why is his hand on my waist? Is he really fondling my breasts? What do I do? Why is he in a bathrobe? Why is he taking off the bathrobe? God, I need to get out of here! I thought this was going to be professional.
No one, unless they’ve been in the same situation, can ever really understand the stress and self-doubt one goes through when sexual harassment occurs.
Regis Giles’ new book will teach you how to escape the world of #MeToo victim and become the #WarriorChick you were meant to be!
Think Miss Giles knows a thing or two about taking care of herself? You’d better believe it.
She and her sister Hannah were the very first two female Valente Bros black Belts. That’s a feather in your cap, for sure.
She’s got a website ‘Girls Just Wanna Have Guns‘ and she had it LONG before it was ‘trendy’ to talk about #MeToo.
She’s also a world-class huntress.
