  • Philly city council wants socialism taught in schools - in praise of mass murdering dictators

    Philadelphia city council members have approved a resolution that calls for socialist historian Howard Zinn’s book “A People’s History of the United States” to be taught in public high schools. The resolution was backed by council members Jim Kenny and Jannie Blackwell, who believe that Zinn’s far-left socialist vision of American history is currently missing from high school textbooks. “Howard Zinn’s ‘A People’s History of the United States’ emphasizes the role of working people, women, people of color, and organized social movements in shaping history; not simply the version retold by those powerful enough to ensure history remembers their actions...
  • Famous For His Hates: The Cool, Witty Gore Vidal

    Chris Bram is the author of the novel Gods and Monsters. Gore Vidal was famous for his hates: academia, presidents, whole portions of the American public and, most notably, Truman Capote. Yet he could be incredibly generous to other writer friends. He wrote beautiful, appreciative essays about Tennessee Williams and Dawn Powell. He was a man of many facets and endless contradictions. He achieved his first notoriety in 1948 when he was only 22, for his novel, The City and the Pillar. It was the fullest, most frank portrait of gay American life at that time. The book wasn't autobiographical...

  • Rep. Ron Paul: I advocate the same foreign policy the Founding Fathers would

    Union Leader ^ | October 8, 2007 | Ron Paul
    Any response to this paper's Friday editorial on my foreign policy position must rest on two fundamental assertions: first, that the Founding Fathers were not isolationists; and second, that their political philosophy -- the wisdom of the Constitution, the Declaration, and our Revolution itself -- is not just a primitive cultural relic. If I understand the editors' concerns, I have not been accused of deviating from the Founders' logic; if anything I have been accused of adhering to it too strictly. The question, therefore, before readers -- and soon voters -- is the same question I have asked for almost...
  • Zotted Trolls Love Socialism is the best form of government (and here why)

    Socialism is best because under socialism. No one has to worry about being poor or starving to death. No one is poor, unemployed, discriminated, everyone is equal reguardless or race or creed. Today such ideas are condemned as evil. Any attempt to protest against slavery and genocide and human rights violations are met with the cries of COMMUNISM! By the religious right and then they conjure up stories about Stalin, Gulags, tortue, police state etc. So therefore we must stick with the current system of sweat shop slavery, poverty and racism while rich people who already have all they will...
  • ACLU Keeps It Real

    IBD ^ | 6/27/2006
    Education: The ACLU is defending the right of school officials to force-feed American students with pro-Communist propaganda about Cuba. It's perfectly in line with the group's Marxist origins. The American Civil Liberties Union and the Miami-Dade County Student Government Association filed suit in U.S. District Court in Miami last week to keep the Miami-Dade School District from removing children's books depicting life in Cuba under Fidel Castro as a bed of red roses. The school board had voted 6 to 3 to oust from all 33 school libraries Alta Schreier's book "A Visit to Cuba," written for 5-, 6- and...

    CONSERVATIVE TRUTH.ORG ^ | MARCH 14, 2005 | GARY ALDRICH - PATRICK HENRY CENTER
    The recent flap about tenured University of Colorado professor Ward Churchill, the wacky white man pretending to be of American Indian heritage, may not seem to have much in common with federal employees or federal judges. Upon closer examination, we see that all three suffer from the same mindset: Arrogance and insolence as a result of a failed system of lifetime tenure, a system that also guarantees plush retirement benefits. Tenure ensures that professors can never be fired for incompetence, and the retirement benefits ensure that only a few will leave the profession on their own. Not coincidentally, the good...
  • Danny Glover Targeted for Anti-War Views

    WASHINGTON - "Lethal Weapon" actor Danny Glover is the latest celebrity facing an icy brand of national pride that puts the pinch on public figures who question American foreign policy. A threatened boycott seeks to force telecommunications company MCI to dump Glover as its pitchman because of views he expressed about Cuba and against the war. Similar frostiness extended to the Dixie Chicks and actors Sean Penn, Tim Robbins and Susan Sarandon when they came out against war in Iraq. Glover said this chill comes from right-wing factions that he denounced as self-appointed thought police. "It's basically this rabid nationalism...

    Rush Limbaugh talking about the AP
    On the show today, Rush talked about how officer Mott photographed the classroom of an American hating teacher in a public school. My question is how did he know about it? Who told him? Was it another teacher or a student. I would really like to know that. for those of you who never had to grow up in these schools you need to know what kind of hell it is to love your country and be forced to be in these classes. These teachers are hateful and destructive. They must be stopped now!!!

    BARRE – John Mott and Tom Treece have at least one thing in common. Make that two. Both men think they have been unfairly accused and, if you believe their critics, both have had a chilling impact on students at Spaulding High School. Mott is the Barre Town police officer who admits he spent part of an early morning break last month photographing student projects in the classroom of a controversial history teacher. Treece is that teacher. A passionate pacifist, he has been skewered publicly by critics who say he is pedaling his personal political views to the students in...

    WASHINGTON – America-haters ran the recent appeasement demonstrations. These longtime enemies of America are collaborating with radical Islamists who want to kill Americans. That fact belies the mainstream media's portrayal of "soccer moms," veterans, Democrats, Republicans, and other ordinary Americans as reflecting grassroots anger at President Bush’s policies in Iraq. Workers World Party (WWP), which organized the demonstrations, is ideologically aligned with the Stalinist nation of North Korea. This tiny Marxist-Leninist group is behind A.N.S.W.E.R. (Act Now to Stop War and End Racism), with which former LBJ Attorney General Ramsey Clark is involved. David Horowitz, author of “The Hate America...
