Peace activists want equal access to Los Angeles high schools to counter military recruiters they describe as "car salesmen" bent on meeting quotas.
The Coalition Against Militarism in Our Schools says it's vital for students to have unvarnished information about military service. The coalition promotes nonviolent alternatives to military service.
Group coordinator Arele Inouye says recruiters "have a quota and it's their job to get students to sign up. So just like a car salesman, they're going to say everything they can to get students to sign up."
The group's access proposal could be considered by the school board next month.
Last month, Los Angeles Unified School District administrators said they could not order high schools to give the group access. Inouye was instead urged to meet with principals and others at the schools.
What would Ward and June do? Beaver, we're putting you in a military academy tomorrow.
Who finances “peace activists” anyway? They don’t work for a living. Soros et al?
Traitors. Hang the bastards.
Ever wonder what Newman’s Own proceeds benefit?
I suppose these “counter military recruiters” would be in-school Obama campaign offices?
Taxpayers, et. al.
I believe most of the so called “activists” are hired hands (hirelings). Just 3 or 4 years ago as I was traveling I saw ads in the L.A. Times, then the Indianapolis Star, then the Memphis Commercial Appeal, and last, The Houston Chronical,ads for ativists, to be paid minimum wages .
Somewhere, someone has special interests to divide and conquer our United States.
I did a tour as a Navy recruiter,OK so it was thirty years ago,but c'mon QUOTA'S!?!?!.We had GOALS! A quota is something you MUST achieve,whereas a goal is something you strive for! /partial sarcasm off
Now I want access to the schools so I can hold counter counter-protests. I want to prevent students from being influenced by the hippies who want to prevent to prevent the continued existence of the US military.
Other than pride in self, country, and tradition, the military offers a career ... all expenses paid. The peace activists want equal footing in the door, and they are offering ................ ???
Once they get access, do you think they will sit quietly and allow the recruiters to do their jobs? No. They will set up as close as they can get to them and scream out lies like “baby murderers” and “The military lies to you”.
I'll tell you the one unvarnished truth that these boneheaded ultra-maroons need to worry about.
Without the military to secure all of our rights to free speech, these dweebs would be without a "job".
It takes strong men willing to commit violence to secure these pussy's rights.
Strong men like in the military.
