Skip to comments.Bill Ayers: Leftist Power is in Schools
Posted on 12/13/2012 6:36:38 AM PST by Kaslin
Terrorist turned teacher Bill Ayers appeared at a recent Big Apple gathering of Change the Stakes, an anti-testing group comprised mostly of teachers and parents. At least two employees of the New York City Board of Education were there as well.
EAGnews obtained exclusive video of the event and will be releasing more clips in the coming days.
But first we would like to present Ayers statement on the power of radical socialist educators in todays public schools. It should send chills down every parents spine.
SEE THE VIDEO HERE.
Ayers explained to his audience that leftists wrongly put their faith in Barack Obama as an agent of change. Forget about it, he said, thats not where change comes from.
When theres movement on the ground, shit happens, he said.
If we want change to come, we would do well not to look at the sites of power we have no access to the White House, even the Congress, the Pentagon these are not the sites we have access to.
But lo and behold, we have absolute access to the community, the school, the neighborhood, the street, the classroom, the workplace, the shop, the farm why are we ignoring that and saying I hope Obama makes peace. Forget about it. Hes not going to do anything if you dont do something. Our job is movement building.
Ayers call to action is precisely why we see bizarre things like the California Federation of Teachers Tax the Rich video or Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel of all people being labeled a fat cat by the Chicago Teachers Union.
Ayers acknowledgement that radical leftists are using classrooms and public spaces to influence children should be a wakeup call to every parent and taxpayer. Educators are paid to teach kids to read, write and think for themselves, not to brainwash them in revolutionary ideology.
Ayers is not an educator. Hes an unconvicted terrorist who wants to use our tax money to further his goal of destroying the greatest nation in the history of the world. And hes calling on the people teaching your children to assist him.
If we are smart, we will use our leverage as taxpayers to stop this nonsense in its tracks, before it becomes an even bigger problem.
Yeah. Good luck with that.
I've been telling people for years they need to take their kids out of state run schools.
But all I get is a bunch of excuses as to why they can't.
Why is Cristy being shown?
Well if the Left’s power is in the schools and with the children, then that’s where we battle. The Right has just as much power but we don’t use it for some reason. I think by nature the lefties are “in your face” thugs and by nature, conversatives are reserved and sit back and watch what happens and try not to do harm. Lefties don’t care who they harm. It’s just so basic and obvious and that’s part of why the deck is stacked against us.
Bill Ayers is still alive?
Sadly conservatives don’t bother to vote in many of the races that matter. Here In Michigan I voted for tea partier Rob Steel for a seat on the UofM board of regents. Unfortunately he only got about half as many votes as Mitt Romney.
The same was true of virtually every other state level education seat. They were all handed to democrats who do vote in those races.
I see it as leaving the enemy weapons factories in place while we try to fight with an ever dwindling army.
Kyle, that train left the station about 1960. It started building a head of steam in 1887 when John Dewey wrote "Looking Backward." He was a totalitarian socialist who wanted government to take over all education via government schools to create an "industrial army."
Bill Ayers has gained so much weight, he looks like Chris Christie.;-)
There was a very interesting article in the WSJ this morning about, of all things, vocabulary. Back in the 1930s, the “progressive movement” (yes, that same crowd) pushed for the removal of “complicated language” from textbooks and the simplification of primary source readings (hence, the edited versions of Dickens, etc. that kids had to read). This was because the goal of education was to be purely practical, not producing a group of people who could think or even needed to think about abstract or theoretical matters but one where the individuals was designed simply to be a good worker and a good cog in the machine.
The author traced many of our current problems with low literacy and numeracy levels and low comprehension levels to this progressivist idea, since over the decades, texts became increasingly simplified and the ability of children to understand or even to know that they didn’t understand and then ask questions became correspondingly lower.
Public education has always been about shaping the proletariat, starting with Dewey and carried on through the progressive movement of his time.
Because he is a lefty under the skin?...
Good question. At least why is he walking free?
John Dewey and fellow conspirators also gave us “sight” reading and the concept of dumbing down the population so they could be controlled.
GOVERMENT SCHOOLS=CHILD ABUSE
and there was no picture of Ayers addressing a class room of young children (Not that he ever did anyway)
Ayers: classy as always.
But he’s right in one sense. As someone who was once involved in local politics, I now know that that is where the real power over people resides.
If only some had stayed and tried to fix it before it was completely broken.
You not only get a bunch of excuses; you get shamed and told that “the public schools are WONDERFUL!”. Also, told why you’re not “qualified” to teach your own kids - and told by public school teachers most of the time.
Pour votre considération d’une “Ping”
