Greatest Hits: Education: Our Greatest Battle?

Education: Our Greatest Battle?  And I fear we have already lost.  This is an article that I had commented on for another site some time ago. I thought that given the current climate of “change,” it might be a good idea to re-visit it. The article is eight years old, however, it seems to echo what is going on today. From the August 2001 Idaho Observer: Why Our Schools Teach Socialism By Joe Larson Congratulations America: Today there are over 10,000 openly marxist professors and thousands of humanist professors controlling the universities and colleges that produce America’s teachers and other […]

It Was 50 Years Ago Yesterday…Can’t Blame the Beatles

“A few years ago, I spoke with a 50-something Cuban who left the island recently. We spoke about the repression, censorship of the press and the food shortages. Then he said this: ‘You know one more thing I hate the Castro dictatorship….they denied me The Beatles’” – Silvio Canto Jr. “Music is the art of thinking with sounds.” – Jules Combarieu “On some nights I still believe that a car with the gas needle on empty can run about fifty more miles if you have the right music very loud on the radio.” – Hunter S. Thompson “Most people my […]

Liberals Stating That Dissent it Sedition: Calls For the Arrest of Those That Disagree With Totalitarianism

Nazi Germany, Soviet Union, ChiComs, Chavez’s Venezuala, Cuba, Vietnam, to name a few, all had something in common; punishing dissent. History is filled with regimes that made dissent a crime.  Prisons, concentration camps, gulags, and even psychiatric facilities were filled with people that simply disagreed with the ruling regime.  In fact, it still goes on today.  The reasoning is rather simple.  When the regime is based on socialism, it fails-and to cover up that failure, opponents must be blamed, and punished.  Then, when the opponents are jailed (or killed outright), the failure continues, and other people are then blamed for […]

Sadly, the Trayvon Martin Violence Begins: People Attacked, Vandalism, News Crew Attacked

It seems that the usual suspects, Communists, Anarchists, and Occupods, have used the George Zimmerman verdict to do what they do best, act like thugs.  Here is a round up… LAPD declares citywide tactical alert; Zimmerman protesters storm Walmart   “THIS IS FOR TRAYVON” – THREE BLACK MEN ATTACK WHITE MAN IN MISSISSIPPI, CLAIM JUSTICE FOR TRAYVON Is this the lesson the anti-verdict crowd wish to teach their children? Is this the policy they wish to see enacted across America? Apparently for some it is. Police Chief Steve Holts told Fox News the alleged victim, who is white, was jogging Sunday […]

Useful Idiots Pushing Earth Day Just the Outer Circle of Death: A Conversation with my Daughter and an Angry Mob of Teachers

When I asked my daughter today what she learned in school today she said Daddy, today we learned about how people are cutting down all the rain forests to make stuff. And that driving our cars is causing the ice caps to melt and all the polar bears to die. And that it is only going to get worse until we start doing things different. Notice she didn’t talk to me about how she learned math, reading, or history- and she didn’t mention learning a new sports game, learning about values or morals, or learning how to write computer code. […]

Great Moments in Civil Discourse Retroactive: Liberals Cheered When Ronald Reagan was Shot

It’s been a while since we’ve done a Great Moments in Civil Discourse post, and this one is vintage.  It seems that 32 years ago, when Ronald Reagan was nearly killed by an assassin’s bullet, liberals burst into cheers. Tom Blumer at Newsbusters has more… Two years ago today, I chronicled wire service reports which appeared shortly after John Hinckley’s unsuccessful attempt to assassinate President Ronald Reagan on March 30, 1981 reporting that schoolchildren in many parts of the country cheered when they heard that he had been shot. At the time, I suggested that school teachers and administrators who […]

OWS Defends North Korea?

What happens when the most repressive regime on Earth is featured in an American film?  OWS comes forward to defend it! That’s right, when Red Dawn was re-made, the Soviet Union was “unavailable” to be the adversary, so the producers turned to North Korea. And, when the communists at OWS heard of it, they decided to protest it. I loved the first guy for suggesting that they have been trying to unify their people-read subjugate them! Just to repeat the comparison… Of course, the OWS folks think that it’s terribly unfair that the people in South Korea have lights, food, […]

Teachers, Communists, and Refusing to Talk to Media

What happens when the unions and communists march as one?  Well, it appears that to prevent them from saying anything stupid on camera, they don’t talk to anyone on camera.  The Right Scoop has the video… Mind you, these people are teaching children lies about a system that featured… 1.  Failed economics that resulted in medocrity at best, and often mass starvation. 2.  Gulags, informants, and people being “disappeared.” 3.  Over 100,000,000 dead in the last century. 4.  A system that had to build wall-to keep their own people in. Of course, the children are being taught that these things either didn’t happen, or […]

What do Chicago Teachers do in Their Spare Time? Attend the Midwest Marxism Conference!

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, […]

Obama wins Coveted Communist Party Endorsement

For a POTUS isn’t  a Communist, the Communist Party USA sure is interested in him staying in office.  Stacey McCain has more… While Obama is officially the candidate of the Democrat Party, he’s also got the endorsement of the Communist Party: Re-electing Obama is not sufficient to bring economic recovery or even relief to our people. Only a different class configuration in political power can do necessary minimum reforms to give us a chance. But re-electing Obama is absolutely essential. Now is not the time for hand washing the complexities and tactics away — or failing to triage the most critical questions from those that are less critical. […]

Occupy Wall Street: Apparently, the 99% does NOT like Communists defecating on their property


When the organizers were planning, plotting, and paying for Occupy Wall Street, the apparently did not consider a “good neighbor” policy.  You see, Zuccotti Park is near a residential area, and the residents are getting a bit fed up with our would-be Communist overlords… Infuriated lower Manhattan residents went ballistic on Zuccotti Park protesters at a chaotic Community Board 1 meeting tonight while blasting politicians for allowing the siege to continue without any end in sight. “They are defecating on our doorsteps,” fumed Catherine Hughes, a member of Community Board 1 and a stay at home mom who has the misfortune […]

Communist Party USA Spokesman Gets Warm Greeting at Occupy Chicago: So, the 99% are Communists too?


Yes, apparently!   We’ve been saying all along that this movement has been openly embracing Communist ideology, but either omitting the source, or calling it by a different name.  On Saturday night, a spokesman from the Communist Party USA, John Bachtell, was warly greeted by the Occupy Chicago crowd.  Here is the video, via Rebelpundit… So, the Communists, who are the representatives of the most murderous political ideology in human history, are applauded at an “occupy” event, and are not driven away, rebuked, rejected, or even slightly frowned upon. What does that say about the Occupy Wall Street Movement?  In case […]

Occupy Wall Street Endorsed by Nazis, Communists, and Iranian Ayatollah: Are they part of the 99%?

You must be doing something right left when the Nazi Party, Communist Party, and the ruling Ayatollah of Iran like you, right?  Apparently so, because the aforementioned entities have all come out in support of the Occupy Wall Street Movement.  Here is the documentation for the outpouring of support, via Gateway Pundit… OK then, the modern, American variants of the two most  murderous entities of the last century are supporting the Occupy Wall Street Movement?  If that d0esn’t tell you something about OWS, I fear nothing else will. Now, the Nazis and Communists were the mass murderers of the the last century. […]

And Yet Another Example of Unions and Communists

Just when you thought that I could cover something else, there is even more evidence of the union-Communist connection.  Recently, the unions celebrated the Haymarket Riots.  For some background, here is some information on the  riots… At Haymarket Square in Chicago, Illinois, a bomb is thrown at a squad of policemen attempting to break up a labor rally. The police responded with wild gunfire, killing several people in the crowd and injuring dozens more. The demonstration, which drew some 1,500 Chicago workers, was organized by German-born labor radicals in protest of the killing of a striker by the Chicago police the day before. Midway […]

Your Tax Dollars Funding Marxist Indoctrination: American Flag is Racist

We’ve all talked about Marxist professors before.  It’s pretty well documented that most of our universities are home to untold numbers of Marxists.  However, since the technology allows it, and the Marxists operate in plain site, it’s becoming rather easy to expose them.  Case in point, these videos from Big Government… I have to ask anyone that is visiting this blog for the first time, does this video represent what this country stands for?  Does these ideas fit a free country, or do they fit a dictatorship?  Is this extremism?  These are questions that we all have to ask, and […]

Communists, Unions, and Astroturf, Oh my

As we see more of the union protests, we see more and more of two additional elements; Communists and substantial funding.  For the latest, take a look at this video from Rebel Pundit, via Big Government… Here is an excerpt from Rebel Pundit… While Tea Parties have received massive amounts of ridicule for being so called “Astro-Turf” (corporate funded) from the institutional left and mainstream media, left wing protesters claim the moral high ground of being a “true” grassroots movement. However once again, our footage reveals an extremely elaborate and costly production put on by these so called “true” grassroots activists. This […]
