Community Organizing In America's Schools - Don't you let them get away with it.
The Obama File ^ | 10/17/09 | The Obama File

Yesterday, the US News & World Report published an essay, "Michelle Obama, Teachers Are Key to a Successful Economy." It begins:

Michelle Obama: Teachers Are Key to a Successful Economy By Michelle Obama Posted October 15, 2009 Michelle Obama is the first lady of the United States.

That's a lot of Michelle Obamas

Anyway, after personalizing Michelle and the kids, Michelle's ghost-writer inserts the boiler-plate about the challenges and lack of rewards of teaching, which has been eternally true, and spring-boards into the reason for the exercise -- placing community organizers into the public schools -- Michelle refers to them as "leaders."

Today, we need a new generation of leaders to take their place in our nation's schools. We need passionate, talented, committed men and women to step up and devote themselves to preparing our students to succeed in this new century.

We need universities to double down on their efforts to prepare teachers and to improve and expand effective alternative routes to certify teachers. We need to encourage more experienced professionals to consider teaching as the next chapter in their careers.

Well, we know the universities are producing new teachers that believe the country was founded by a bunch of old white guys who owned slaves, but what does "...expand effective alternative routes to certify teachers" mean? -- and this:

We need parents to do their part as well to match that leadership in the classroom with leadership at home...We need to reinforce the example that's being set and the lessons being taught at school and make sure that learning continues at home.

Clearly, Michelle is describing a formal linkage between the organizing effort in the school and the home, which is a great thing if we're talking reading, writing, and arithmetic, but that's not what the Obama's history tells us she has in mind.

Much work lies ahead, and it won't be easy. But I am confident that with a new generation of outstanding leaders in our classrooms, we can make a lasting difference in the lives of our young people and a lasting impact on the life of this nation.

There's that "leaders" thing again, and in the classroom -- and now that we know the Obamas a little, do you really believe that Michelle Obama is referring to reading comprehension when her goal is to make a "lasting impact on the life of this nation."

So what's really going on here? Community organizing, that's what -- it's what these people do. It's like a virus -- and the Obamas are carriers.

The means to Michelle's ends lies in her statement, "...expand effective alternative routes to certify teachers" -- and just guess who just happens to have an "alternative route to certify teachers" -- yup, the Obamas.

Did you know that Barack and Michelle Obama have been operating 15 fully-staffed Alinsky training centers since 1993?

The Obamas are operating a non-profit called Public Allies, an organization modeled upon Alinsky's "people’s organizations." It is operating under the watchful eye of Michelle Obama and it has a ton of money -- more than $75 million per year -- and an impressive list of donors. Naturally, it also receives grants from federal, state and municipal sources. Its mission has been, and is, to produce "community organizers" -- baby Obamas -- and its process is replicable and repeatable -- continually producing more apparatchiks -- they are referred to as "leaders."

During the campaign, Obama also ran, at the state level, a "national program for social change," called "Camp Obama" -- here is their sign-up page. The Obama Campaign's website promised that "you'll get the kind of experience that Barack got as a community organizer on the South Side of Chicago," and "Camp Obama is your chance to step up and become a 'leader' in this 'movement'."

There it is again, the word, "leader." It has a very specific meaning to these people.

These "leaders" answer to only one person -- Obama -- and they provide a ready pool of "leaders" to train, new "teachers." It's in place. It's a professional development entity. Is it the "effective alternative route" of which Michelle speaks? It is if Obama says it is.

Remember the Chicago Annenberg Challenge and the "Small Schools" movement? The program focused on individual schools built around specific political themes to push students to "confront issues of inequity, war, and violence." The teacher education programs served as "sites of resistance" to an oppressive system.

The point of the program, said Bill Ayers in his "Teaching Toward Freedom," is to "teach against oppression," against America's history of evil and racism, thereby forcing social transformation.

Small Schools is the Obama model. It's what they know. It's what they believe. It's what they've practiced. It's what the have in mind for the schools.

This is what Michelle is talking about when she says her goal is to prepare "students to succeed in this new century."

This bunch has been organizing since the 1960s -- they've taken over the colleges and universities -- Michelle's essay outlines their plan to take over the primary and secondary schools -- you can bet there are bills and riders to bills for the funding already working their way through the House.

After high school is when Rahm Emanuel's plan kicks in. In his book, "The Plan: Big Ideas for America," Rhambo writes: "We propose universal civilian service for every young American. Under this plan, all Americans between the ages of 18 and 25 will be asked to serve their country by going through three months of basic training, civil defense preparation and community service."

On July 2nd, 2008, Obama spoke in Colorado Springs and hit themes of national service, foreign policy, and national security. In that vein, Obama proposed a rather extraordinary idea -- that the US should spend as much money on a civilian national security force as it does on the military. (video)

"We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded."

It's all connected. Don't you let them get away with it. Learn to organize. The Tea Parties and 912 activities are probably a good place to start.

If conservatives don't organize, they win. It's as simple as that.

If you don’t want it, better pull your kids out of single payer government schools.

P.S. Please don’t patronize me with the: “but MY school district is conservative.”

You are correct. No school district is conservative because “teachers” are no longer educators. They are lowest scoring students in university and then they are molded to warp the next generation.

So, even with ACORN under the gun, pimps running child sex slaves still have a place to go for business advice!
