Over the years, we’ve shown the relationship, or the uniformity, between unions and the Communist Party. Legal Insurrection has the story of how the Midwest Marxism Conference we chock full of teachers.
Chicago Teachers Union Vice President Jesse Sharkey, who spoke at one of the breakout sessions, was just one of the hundreds of attendees, many of them teachers, there to strategize about the next phases of the partnership between Chicago Socialists and the Chicago Teachers Union.
Of course, all recording was strictly verboten unless you had been preapproved by the Chicago Socialists.
The event kicked off with Becca Barnes’s keynote speech. Barnes, a Chicago teacher, spoke about the new era of Marxism in America stemming from the Chicago Socialists’ recent successes in running the show during the Chicago Teachers Strike. Said Barnes, who referred to everyday American capitalists as “capitalist vampires,” “the struggle here in the United States has entered a new phase. Nowhere have we pointed the way forward more clearly than here in Chicago with the teachers union strike.” From her talk and other succeeding events throughout the day, it was clear that the Teachers Union and Marxists were one and the same.
Thankfully, after hours of enduring non-discussion and hate speech against Americans (and being amongst those celebrating a philosophy of mass murderers), I was “outed” as not a communist, told I was “not in solidarity” and surrounded by members of the Chicago Socialists who told me to leave the Northwestern School of Journalism premises. Also “spotted” as not in solidarity was Rebel Pundit, who had a more interesting exit than I:
Also, there is video of Rebel Pundit being ejected from the conference…
As you can see, the Communists are very tolerant and democratic. Until, that is, someone is not “in solidarity” with them.
That, and current advocates of the political system responsible for 100,000,000 deaths in the last century are teaching children their murderous philosophy. But, we’ll just pretend that this ism’t happening, right?
