Skip to comments.Brainwashing America’s Youth: Using Public Schools To Indoctrinate Students;Alinsky Required Reading
Posted on 01/31/2010 11:35:23 AM PST by callisto
Like all radicals in positions of power, President Obamas army of citizen volunteers, Organizing for America, is recruiting high school students as interns to organize the Presidents agenda in the 2010 election cycle. I quote,
Organizing for America, the successor organization to Obama for America, is building on the movement that elected President Obama by empowering students across the country to help us bring about our agenda
Pam Geller at Atlas Shrugs reports on students at Perry Local High School in Massillon, Ohio who were given propaganda recruiting papers in government class to enlist students to sign up as interns for Obamas Organizing for America.

That’s not the same article. Perhaps writers can express differing perspectives on similar topics.
Two words: Home School!
Good post indeed.
What’s happening here is quite fascinating, imo. Troubling but fascinating.
And what can we do about it?
Shine a light on their activities. Make people & parents aware of how the administration is using their political arm to indoctrinate youth.
Right out of the Red Book of Mao and "He who controls the youth owns the future" Adolph Hitler
Hey Obama, Leave our Kids Alone!
I know, I should have posted that it was realated.
Time to form a youth Organization For Returning America to Freedom from Unconstitutional Government Interference.

It’s all good. I’m a little curt until I get my coffee fix for the day. ;)
Thanks! I hadn’t seen that one yet.
In the meantime, down the hall, I’m requiring my students to read “One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich” and comparing the current progressive agenda to Mussolini. Students are lining up at the door in such numbers they need to be turned away. Want to mess with me? I’ve got tenure, kids score through the roof on standardized tests, and I’m teaching to the standards. Bring it on.
And there are many, many more of us out there than is commonly recognized, working quietly, like termites in the structure of leftist belief, doing a Gramsciian march through THEIR institutions.
Or to paraphrase a slogan from the sixties: What if they gave us a revolution and nobody showed up?
>>>Excellent! We need visibility in academia. A hard-nosed conservative collegiate alliance is in order. The universities in America need a shake-up. Conservative educators need to get into the media responding to the Left’s agenda and belief structure. It would be great to start a nationwide conservative academic movement. Now is our time! Any ideas on how we can implement it?<<<
I’m not sure that visibility is the order of the day.
The success of the Gramsciian model is stealth, not confrontation. In the left’s desire to subvert Western cultural values and replace those values with socialist thinking, they made it clear that the first objective was placing themselves in positions of authority and communication, which can’t be done in an overt and aggressive manner. The left often uses proxies in place of their own motives - “It’s for the children” or “I just want to make the world a better place.”
In fact, we know what happens to teachers and administrators who are stridently conservative in academia, including pies in the face at symposiums.
The left has been working on their project of subversion for decades. What they don’t realize is that their tactics are simply that - tactics. Tactics don’t have an ideology. It has taken years for the left to essentially grab control of communication and education - and it will probably take decades of slow, steady, silent work to undermine what they’ve done.
In the meantime, I encourage you to read Saul Alinsky. I did when I was a young man. Again, he offers tactics. Like many leftists, he’s under the impression that his intellect and superior way of thinking means that once he and his friends are in power, that’s the end of it. He should have read his Hegel more closely. In fact, Rush and Beck and Savage all utilize forms of Alinsky-style tactics against the left to great benefit. The same is true here. And never pass up the opportunity to ridicule the left - because, as Alinsky says, ridicule is impossible to defend against. And use the values of the opposition against them - for instance, we had a counselor who didn’t want a Christmas tree at the school. Our response was that he needed to be more tolerant of the diverse beliefs of students and teachers. I guess that’s a two-for-one shot.
There’s one advantage we have over the left. We have faith. It carries us through the hard times and keeps us secure. All they have is a desire for power. Compared to faith, it’s a puny thing.
So I’m not joining the club. But I am a little member of the fifth column deep behind enemy lines, and, as the left likes to say, “I’m changing the world one child at a time.” LOL
I am sorry we disagree.
We can do EVERYTHING!
OFA is not a CSO, period. Demand NO CREDIT FOR POLITICAL ACTIVITIES.
Doesn’t seem to be going anywhere. Atlas Shrugged reported and all I see picking it up are Horowitz and Big Government.
Wrote to the two local newspapers in the area and got no reply.
It’s time to send it to media. Beck, Hannity, et al. If it can get primetime airing it will begin to be picked up by everyone else.
Good for You! Bring it on Lefties, a Lot of teachers out there are Conservatives! We outnumber you with the Conservative Teachers in the Public Schools, Private Schools and the Home Schoolers. So bring it On!!
Great work contacting the school and local media. Please let me know if you get a response. Bringing Obama’s community organization group/campaign arm into the school to recruit interns for the stated agenda of training them to be future OFA leaders and garnering support for his agenda is stunning. I’m not surprised, but still stunned at the brazenness of it.
