Far-left social justice teachers never miss an opportunity to push their agenda in the classroom.
As youll see in my upcoming book, Indoctrination: How Useful Idiots Are Using Our Schools to Subvert American Exceptionalism, leftist teachers use moments like the #OccupyWallStreet protests around the country to push their agenda of shifting America leftward away from a free market system.
One such teacher, Bob Peterson, who moonlights as the president of the Milwaukee teachers union, fawned all over a music video produced with footage from the various protests. He called it a great video rich with teaching possibilities.
In one part, the camera is panning across pictures of Bush administration officials, to these lyrics:
War mongers only make the war longer More sons and daughters sent on tour for slaughter Pure mongers no conscience killin machines Ten years later and were still on the scene Bush passed the hot grenade now Obama gotta save the day Before we waste away its safe to say We need to make a change celebrate the slain Maybe take the blame and tear down the main frame
Its called Occupy Stand Up by the Royal Kush Band and can be seen here on YouTube.
If Bob Peterson and the other activist teachers have their way, it will soon be a part of your childs social studies class.
The New York Times has also published a lesson plan [PDF here] for teachers, entitled, Who Are the 99 percent? Ways to Teach About Occupy Wall Street. The plan begins:
Overview | Why are protesters occupying Wall Street? What are they protesting, and what are their goals? In this lesson, students are introduced to Occupy Wall Street and then investigate the movement more deeply.
Warm-Up | Provide students with the following six slogans that have been displayed on placards during demonstrations being staged as part of a political movement. (At this point, do not identify the movement; you may also want to obscure the fact that the movement is contemporary.) Invite the class to guess which movement the placards are from.
End the Oligarchy
Human Need Not Corporate Greed
Jobs, Justice and Education
Save the American Dream
We are the 99%
Those purveyors of straight journalism at the New York Times theyre so helpful in providing materials so students can learn about whats behind #OccupyWallStreet.
Teachers unions have been central to the vitality of the #OccupyWallStreet protests. Thats true in New York City, Chicago, Los Angeles, Oakland and elsewhere around the country. Now their most hardcore activists are working to bring it into taxpayer-funded classrooms.
Any conservative or Christian that puts his children in the government-run, tax-funded school collectives is submitting them to an authority that will teach his children that he’s a counter-revolutionary throwback.
By putting his children in the school collective, he is implicitly agreeing with what they teach.
If he tries to tell his children that the commie teachers in the school collective are wrong, then he becomes inconsistent at best, or a hypocrite at worst, but, either way, untrustworthy.
Make whatever sacrifices you must, but get your children OUT of the government school collective and either educate them at home or in a good, conservative church or synagogue school.
Which means reading a leftwing newspaper in public school parlance. lol.
This is typical. When the Texas teachers were protesting phantom cuts in Austin, it was in the lesson plans like this within days. Students were to find and print out 3 news articles and write an essay just like this.
Leftwing proaganda in schools.
Public schools will be doing this weekly for Obama next year.
It would appear that the teachers are instead preparing to empty their classrooms into the street, like the ANC did during their revolution in South Africa. A whole generation of ANC-led black youth missed their educations because they were co-opted by the ANC for violent revolution.
