Teachers Flock to Northwestern University for 'Marxist Conference'
Breitbart ^

Posted on 11/12/2012 9:03:23 PM PST by chessplayer

This Saturday, the Midwest Marxist Conference was held at Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism. The event was teeming with teachers who spoke about the new found bond between the radical socialists and their Teachers Union. The all-day event, which collected money to support Chicago Socialists and featured a communist bookstore, provided students on-campus along with the radical left community to plan the next phase in their activism.

After the opening plenary, breakout sessions addressed more specific topics like the history of the Democratic party, education, and case studies in Russia. In these sessions, speakers continued to celebrate the use of education as a mechanism to insert Marxism into public institutions. In one session, the idea of targeting their message to students, even over “the working class,” was debated.

It is natural that people forget history, especially from one generation to the next. I think one of our urgent needs after this election is to teach history, especially communism and fascism. Young people have really never been taught about it.

Hopefully, news such as this will cause more parents to yank their children out of the ‘would-be Democrat/Socialist voter mills’.

I agree and that is one way it needs to be approached. Marxism might seem to be a great idea until you get to the body count. I have always been amazed that communism gets let off the hook for its holocausts but Nazism doesn’t.

Don't you suppose there's a reason why schools don't teach history anymore.

Be advised that, for the past twenty years, the education establishment's chief expert on secondary school curricula was...William Ayers.

Yes. That William Ayers.

The absence of American History and the promotion of Marxism in public schools has happened by design.

This was by design.

My mom taught civics for 30 something years until they ended it in 1995... and this was in largest/second large public high school in America.

They also did away with Western Civ as well at the same time.

Deliberate ignorance.... but HEY it is okay, they learned all about warm things like women’s history or hyphenated-American history and Social Justice LOL.

All the while just omitting real world history and the classics all together.

I was schooled in kanada and we were ALL brain-washed that Americans were POS trash. Any freeper who says canadians are friends need a lobotomy.

It’s how strong-willed you are, and conservatives are intelligent people. I figured out eventually that kanada was the POS country, not America.

Give well paid union public employees tenure,human nature being what it is, then this is what happens. Big cities are hopeless. At least suburban and rural areas conceivably can have elected school boards and resist.

Hopefully one action resulting from this forum would be to give proper recognition to Axelrod and his family roots,even with name change, back to to the communists that set the revolution in Russia. I would guess these people believe the kind of effort that caused chaos in Russia to overthrow an established government is ripe for similar action in the USA.

I lived in upstate NY a mere 20 miles from Canada and 56 miles from Montreal as a kid. The French Canucks were always trashing my grandfather’s main camp plus his others for his family on Lake Champlain during the winter.

They came across the border as migrant workers to pick apples at one of my uncles orchard’s near Peru. Sadly,they are better off then we are now.

To quote David McCullough...”Americans have become historically illiterate.”

There was a decent segment on 60 minutes (accidentally clicked that channel)discussing how poorly educated each generation of Americans has become especially with their own history.
To paraphrase one comment he made...A student from a Midwestern university had approached him after one of his lectures and told him that she was unaware (until his lecture) that the 13 colonies were on the East coast.
My 3rd grader knows this information and can name about 3/4 of them from memory and can pick them all out on map.

I watched the same McCullough comment. The thing is...kids are sitting there and memorizing everything to get through high school, then repeat the same exercise to get through college. By going in the direction of memorizing...you never connect the dots and understand how one act led to another. It’s just a memory game to get you by.

This also explains why the global warming mafia is able to easily convince people of various things. And why economic dimwits appear on some national TV episode and give bogus information about how the economy really works.

We learned Western Civ in high school. It taught, among other things, of the threat of Islam. Too bad it's no longer being taught in schools.

Re the fact that the Breitbart reporter was physically ousted from the conference for not being a marxist.

Ah, memories of the old day. I was physically assaulted and ousted out of the 1971 Student Mobilization Committee to End the War in Vietnam conference at Catholic Un, Feb. 1971. They love to grab you from behind, try to seize your notes, etc. and then keelhaul you out the door.

Campus police didn’t do anything. DC cops did less re assault charges. My revenge: Had another person inside to take notes. I sat on the fire escape outside the conference hall and listened.

Then I got the school photographer’s photos of the reds, esp. those on the stage. Included Rep. Ron Dellums, CPUSAer Helen Gurewitz, her son Don, and SWPer, Debbie Bustin SWP, John Studer YSA/SWP, and possible Maceo Dixon (SWP).

Still have the photos. Hard proof that the communists controlled the conference.

My attackers, Steve Chase (a reall nasty bastard), once married to Elois Linger/Chase; Alex Chis, once married to Barbara Chis (Mutnick) (lots of wife swapping between them), and two other unidentified cowards who grabbed me from behind.

That is how the communist cowards operate. Next time, bring some friends, some very big friends with nasty attitudes. And a lawyer as a witness for any lawsuit.

The other day I read a letter from Anti-Federalist Richard Henry Lee. A major criticism of the Constitution was the lack of a Bill of Rights. Aside from its obvious utility, RHL and others viewed a BOR as sort of a text for continuing education in our republic.

The reason some societies held on to their God given rights like jealous lovers was because they were reminded of them often in schools, newspapers and public proclamations. In Great Britain, Magna Charta was read twice a year in public places, not that it would lose its validity without such confirmations, but to fix the contents of it in the minds of the people.

If neglected, we were sure to descend to the pitiful condition of man in mainland Europe, where they accepted their very existence at the whim of a despot.

A republic cannot be maintained by a people ignorant of the traditions and ideas essential to their political happiness. We are very close to accepting the pitiful, slavish condition endured by most men through history.

Heck, many of us remember when anti-Communism loyalty oaths were required of professors, teachers, students receiving loans, public workers and more.

The Loyalty Oath stayed on the statute books till 1983.

Now asking someone to swear a loyalty oath to the United States would provoke laughter, a punch in the nose, a law suit.....or all three.

Hey Max, I’m Canadian and I think Americans are great (conservative ones at least). I am heavily conservative and believe in individual rights and freedoms, and very small and limited government. Perhaps you should consider you can’t lump all Canadians in one ball before you try to throw them all under the bus.

California law prohibited Communists from serving as teachers until the last few years (the law was removed from the book by DEMOCRATS). Why is that?

The same law also prohibited the teaching (in public schools) of subversion of our government and constitution.

Again, why would “Democrats” support such an agenda?
