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.

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.
He used to be proud of his Pace ties.
Of course the Nazi Germany abuses only started after Operation Barbarossa.

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.
Its actually worse than that...
