Skip to comments.Young communists start "National Red School Bus Tour" to indoctrinate children

Remember when churches used to have "Sunday School" buses that picked up your children and gave them Bible lessons on their way to church?
Now, thanks to the Southern California Young Communist League (YCL), a branch of the Communist Party USA (CPUSA), little red school buses may be coming to your neighborhood.
But they won't be teaching your children Bible lessons, or courses in American history that highlight the freedom we have and those who died to protect it.
They'll be teaching your children the wonders of communism and socialism.
According to an article at The Blaze, the "National Red School-Bus Tour" will make stops in Los Angeles, Texas, Florida, and the Northeast between February and April.
A blog post at P/Oed Patriot says the tour will include:
lively classes and discussions: Marxism and the Political Moment: Building the movement for change; The Crisis of Capitalism Today: Causes of Crisis and the Class Struggle; Working Class and the Labor Movement; Racism, Immigrant Rights, womens rights, LGTB rights and the struggle for equality; The CPUSA and YCL, envisioning Bill of Rights Socialism and how to get there. Also plenty of cultural, social and recreational activities
The groups motto? "Unite and Fight" in order to Bring around 'Socialism'."
The "enemy", naturally, is the "political class and capitalism":
"The enemy is not unions, it is not immigrants, nor any other scapegoat. Its the corporations and banks that close factories, cut wages and benefits, and force people, especially youth, to work for minimum and sub-minimum wages or join the military in order to get an education or an income."
The enemy is not overseas. It is not the people of Iraq, Cuba, Venezuela, or China. The enemy is the ruling class right here at home."

They won’t have the stones to come to my little town.
The old timers tell me it was a hotbed of communism in the 1920s but their parents drove the communists out.
If it comes to my neighborhood, it won’t be leaving....at least not under it’s own power, and certainly not in one piece.
Are these fools trying to push the nation into war? Seems like everything they do is a push for war.
I have a feeling the “young communists” are going to be young in the soviet politburo sense, like 40.
California law PROHIBITS schools from indoctrinating students in Communism. There are some Red Democrats who want to repeal the law, but it still stands for now.
Someone should greet them with pictures of the Lubyanka, the Gulag and copies of Solzhenitsyn. When I was in junior high I found a copy of “One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich” at the library and didn’t have any trouble reading it and understanding what was going on. Also: pictures of the Berlin wall and an explanation of its function. “See, kids, this is what the people in the little red bus have in store for you.”
I hear that those big tires on school busses make real nice redneck flower pots.
Young Communists. Another side of the “Hitler Youth” coin.
I remember in David Horowitz’s book he talked about Sunnyside, Queens being a center for communism also.
EDUCATION CODE SECTION 51530 No teacher giving instruction in any school, or on any property belonging to any agencies included in the public school system, shall advocate or teach communism with the intent to indoctrinate or to inculcate in the mind of any pupil a preference for communism.
I suspect that this law is honored more in the breach than the observance nowadays.
It’s more than likely the “short” school bus...
Maybe they could do a two-fer with the American Nazi Party, so all folks would need would be a bridge, and they could use both ends of the rope at the same time. Commies off the left side, Nazis off the other left side.
I’m in a tiny farming community but communists were farmers too.
My neighbor has an planning map of it as a much larger planned community with seperate barracks for unmarried farmhands, cottages for married farm workers and workers with children. Mill workers live by the dam, ice workers by the lake and icehouse by the rail line. They expected several thousand people here. There are less than 200 today and its perfect.
I wonder how they would feel seeing this tiny town with their main drag as my private driveway and my house sitting where their icehouse did.

I thought ACORN disbanded?
None of the communist / socialist / anarchist utopian communities attempted in the US ever succeeded. They all failed, and usually within a year or two. The only thingthat kept them afloat for even that long was an available sugar daddy, like Robert Owen. Once they ran out of money - collapse. And most of them collapsed even before that happened.
The only thing that differentiated the US utopians is that they never quite got around to slaughtering those who didn’t agree with them. Soem might argue that John Brown the abolitionist was one such example, but he doesn’t quuite fit the mold of our noble dreamers.
