In September, the Chicago Teachers Union went on strike, shutting down the Windy Citys schools for 10 days. Many of those same teachers were in attendance on Nov. 10 at the Midwest Marxism Conference held at Northwestern University in Chicago.
The topics of the conference were:
Marxism, Crisis & Resistance
The Meaning of Marxism
The Flint Sit-down Strikes & The Founding of the UAW
From Apartheid Schools to the New Jim Crow: Racism, USA
The Democrats: A Critical History
Russia: A Case Study in Workers Power & Revolution
Socialists & Trade Unions
Class, Race & the Civil Rights movement
Education & Capitalism
Lenins Theory of the Revolutionary Party
Marxism & Womens Liberation
Whose City? Labor, the 1%, and the Democratic Party Machine in Chicago
Imperialism: Why Capitalism Creates War
Detroit, I Do Mind Dying
Among some of the speakers at the conference was Jesse Sharkey, vice president of the Chicago Teachers Union. Another speaker who kicked off the conference was Becca Barnes, a Chicago teacher, who refers to American capitalists as capitalistic vampires. Barnes told the crowd:
The struggle here in the United States has entered a new phase. Nowhere have we pointed the way forward more clearly than here in Chicago with the teachers union strike.
One person who attended the conference noted that with the abundance of teachers and their response to the messages and participation in the workshops, it gave a clear message that the Chicago Teachers Union is one with the local Marxists. A number of the workshops were led by members of the local Chicago Teachers Union.
Each of the sessions that this person attended started with congratulating Barack Obama for winning his re-election. After listening to language filled with hate and anger aimed at America it became obvious to this person that the agenda of the Chicago socialists and teachers was to change society to be more like that of the former Soviet Union. He noticed that the philosophy of mass murderers such as Lenin were upheld and embraced by those in attendance. Teachers strategize on what and how to teach the school kids in Chicago to train them up with the Marxist philosophy.
UnAmerican Activities anyone?
Guess who was right.
Marxism died in the last century. The only place it survives is among leftist Americans.
a picture is worth 1,000 words .....
It seems that things need to get much, much worse before they get any better... we appre to need a *national* experience of communist atrocities... :-(
wasn’t a teacher fired recently for posting an anti-Obama comment on Facebook??
We should send them to the Gulag let them taste first hand how Marxism devolves into Leninism to Stalinism.
Just a hunch - Nah!
Outstanding explanation! Pretty well sums up the whole mess. Thanks, onyx.
Depending on your immigration status, length of time in the United States, and income, you may be eligible for some federal benefit programs, the Web page reads........."
And so why can’t conservatives have a conference at a University explaining economic freedom?
Why does it never occur to us to do this very thing?
They are out-organizing us to the point where it appears we have a death-wish.
A Marxist is someone who reads A Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich and thinks, "Hey, this is a good idea!"
In a sane country the conference would have been raided and the attendees arrested as traitors and subversives.
There's your problem...
Today outside our area abortion clinic, one client defended her vote for Obama. She did not argue with the fact that Obama supported abortion and even voted against giving medical treatment to those babies who survived abortion. But Mitt Romney wanted to cut funds to PBS which showed he didn’t care about children. Public schools will bring about the death of freedom and intelligent thought in this nation.
