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.
It's obvious the majority of Americans now want a vast, huge, powerful centralized federal government to tax the wealthy into submission and spread their wealth around to the lesser folks, all while giving up every last shred of freedom they ever had.
I mean, who needs freedom when I can get a free obama-phone!
Yes; not implying you knew — I’m sure it has been emailed around a lot in the past few days!!
That was awesome !
Better yet...Drone armed with hell-fire attitude-adjustment device...
Obama is a Marxist communist who has attained that which is most prized by the worlds communists, The office of president of the United States. He has also voiced his displeasure with our form of government and said china being a dictatorship is easier to govern. He has voiced contempt of our constatution and stated it was poorly written and unusable. He was unhappy that we where paying less than two dollars a gallon for gas. Now he is angry that drilling on private property will likely derail his plans to push the price of a gallon of gas past five. He really... really... really hates that we, this nation, is so productive and as a result wealthy and is working his hardest to make us unproductive and as poor as any other third world country. he has stated that if we are in conflict with Islam he will stand with Islam. he said ‘’If I had to name my greatest strength, I guess it would be my humility. Greatest weakness, it’s possible that I’m a little too awesome.’’ He has taken up the mantle of dictator. Isn’t that so so special?
I share your disgust at this.
Excuse me... Senate.
I believe J. Grant Swank, Jr got it right here.
So the commies are here, right out in the open and they want your kids.
Better get them out of the publik skools.
Not my children. If you don’t homeschooll, you’re part of the problem.
Love that, thanks!
Take control of your local school board. Do not let a meeting go by without your presence. Then start on your state legislature and get them to ban the hiring of education degrees. For K-6 hire high school grads with a 3.0 or better GPA. Prior to a public school system they did better than the current ed degrees are doing now. For high school, hire BS or BA degrees. Finally, never let a socialist of any variety near a child.
I have been re-reading the Gulag Archipelago of late. It is frightening to see how tings here are headed down that same hole.
Public education is an immoral system of propagandizing started at the point of the gun and it has ever been so. Trying to reform it is trading one master for another.
None of my four children ever set foot in a government public school. Thanks be to God.
You can’t interrogate corpses “rigorously” and start following the money trail back to their evil masters.
