Inside the "Left Forum": Pace University Hosts Communist Conference
Youth for Western Civilization ^ | 4/4/2011 | John Anderson

Posted on 04/04/2011 8:52:05 AM PDT by VAactivist

The weekend of March 18-20, I attended the 'Left Forum' hosted by Pace University in New York City. The forum featured a motley mix of hard left extremists, many of whom openly espoused the violent overthrow of the government and the use of state power to physically destroy conservatives. It also featured a great number of American educators. As it turns out, many of the hard left extremists were also educators, revealing the extent to which the avowed enemies of America have successfully infiltrated the educational establishment.

[One] particular group celebrated President Ronald Reagan's death by plastering the slogan “ROT IN HELL” over the President's picture.

Most amusingly, the U.S. Friends of the Soviet People was still active and hanging around. The group, which seemed stuck in a time warp from 3 decades ago, was devoted to "defending the Soviet Union against 'American propaganda.'" Why they are defending a regime which has not existed for 2 decades was not explained.

One booth was selling t-shirts showing a sniper-style crosshairs displayed over Sarah Palin's face...

Although nearly every presenter attacked America, they simultaneously praised many current and former communist countries including the USSR, Maoist China, East Germany, and North Korea. According to the Left Forum, the only country in the world which has ever committed human rights abuses worth paying attention to other than the United States and Nazi Germany is Israel...

Another group in attendance and participating in panels was the Revolutionary Communist Party. One member talked to me about the need to "work towards a time when there could be a revolution," and the need to create a "hard core" to lead the revolution, in order to take advantage of incidents like recent happenings in Wisconsin. According to the promoter, China "went from good to bad after Mao died."

There’s no hate like liberal hate and I am appalled any university would host this kind of “conference”, even in Zoo Yawk City

and the use of state power to physically destroy conservatives.

This frequently happens in Socialist Revolutions. The Left kills anyone who challenges the dominant paradigm. They are the dominant paradigm.

Until we get rid of communism in this country, it will continue to grow. It’s part of the communist manifesto to infiltrate our schools and this they are continuing. We need another McCarthy era and we need it now. During that era, this country set communism back over 60 years. People think it went away but it’s alive and thriving. People in our country have no idea what communism did to the USSR.

These are cockroaches who need to be stamped out very soon. Our individual liberties and freedom are seriously at risk today. They control education, the news media, book publishing, textbook publishing, the public libraries, the National “culture” through Hollywood and TV, the law schools, the courts, the White House and Congress. We have been overthrown. They are now trying to consolidate power. The endgame is fast approaching where we either fight for our freedom (which means getting butts off of couches and into the trenches) or we succumb to serfdom while they run some kooky Utopia...This is serious, folks.

My Dad, who left us at age 94 three years ago, graduated from there - known as Pace Institute then - back in the early 1930's.....he's gotta be rolling in his grave.

He used to be proud of his Pace ties.

Of course the Nazi Germany abuses only started after Operation Barbarossa.

Many other "educators" were participants in the forum; about a third of more of the panelists were university professors. One person I talked to was selling DVDs promoting socialist activism, which was intended to be used in the classroom. "These people have done it for a generation" he said... Although they were quick to brag about using their positions as educators to advance their ideology, they were intolerant of allowing those identified as being on the conservative end of the spectrum to even hold positions as professors.

This is precisely what is wrong, and has been wrong, with our universities for a long time. It's really bad, and most people who just hung their heads low, tried not to notice or get noticed, and hurried on through to get their degrees don't even realize the scope of it. Perhaps it's too awful to consider. Perhaps it creates cognitive dissonance with the cherished notion of a university education, and the prestige of having been deemed bright enough to attend. Perhaps accepting the truth would stain the sheepskin hanging on the wall, and by extension one's own sacrifice in attaining it, and when it comes to taking a blow to the ego like that, or simply feigning ignorance about the radical indoctrination camps that our universities have by design become, all too many people would rather go with the latter.

—————Our individual liberties and freedom are seriously at risk today.-—————

You said a mouthful there, Tim Wu was nominated to the FTC last month and nobody at FR noticed.

This is very, very bad.

“Why are people still defending the Soviet Union, even though it collapsed?” Because Putin and Co are still running things there.

I’m a Pace alum. This story breaks my heart. I’ve been a regular donor to the alumni fundraising drives, and I was always glad to give because I had such fond memories of my Pace days. But I’m not going to give them another cent if this is the direction the school is taking.
