How Public Schools Are Indoctrinating Students To Marxism

How Public Schools Are Indoctrinating Students To Marxism
    On March 4, 2010 there was a call for an "International Day of Action in Defense of Public Education
and Against Privatization."  Another tag line for this event was "National Day of Action to Defend
Education."  A rational person might wonder what this was all about.  Was education under attack in some
way?  Apparently it was in the minds of those on the extreme left, Marxists and anarchists.  And just what
was the call "Against Privatization" all about?  Perhaps viewing some of the posters created for this event
and shown below will shed some light on the matter.
   National Day of Action to Defend Education Poster             Poster Celebrating the 1st Soviet Congress
      The poster on the left is from the National Day of Action to Defend Education that took place in the
United States on March 4, 2010.  The poster on the right is a propaganda poster from the former Soviet
Union.  Does the artwork seem a bit similar?  The arching wheat shafts are from the great seal of the
Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR).  The same arching wheat shafts seem to appear on the
National Day of Action to Defend Education poster on the left, but of course an updated and modern
version.  And where have we seen the clenched fist before?

      Well, hey, art is art and we shouldn't make too much of the similarities, except that President Barack
Obama called for the art community to support his plan to "fundamentally change" the United States. 
Change it to what?  The poster on the left does say Resist - Mobilize - Transform.  Is "transform" the same
as change? Well, on to more posters.  
     "Students, Workers and Teachers Unite" Poster                              Soviet Propaganda Poster,
        National Day of Action to Defend Education                              "Workers of the World Unite."
      Hmm..."Workers of the World Unite?  Where have I heard that expression before?  Oh, yes, the 
national anthem of the former Soviet Union, L' Internationale.  Now how does that go..."Arise ye workers
from your slumbers...the Internationale unites the human race."  A catchy tune.  Well, anyone can say
"Students, Workers and Teachers Unite" without being a Marxist or a Communist, right?  Andrew Stern,
the President of the Service Employees International Union and Barack Obama's best buddy at the White
House, also called for the "workers of the world to unite" so it must be acceptable to use an old Soviet
clarion call.  I mean, after all, Barack Obama isn't a Marxist, is he?  Hmm...the poster on the left does
seem to have a lot of clenched fists.
      The two posters shown above for the National Day of Action to Defend Public Education and
Against Privatization have more of the usual immature, adolescent, anarchist flair of the typical student
protest before they have to go out and earn a living (THE CULT OF WORK), but it does reflect what
these students have been taught from their public school classrooms right on through the university. 
is quite revealing.  These students have been taught that the "COP" oppresses minorities and should be
hated.  Marxist propaganda has been telling them this for decades.  I mean, after all, minority drug dealers
and criminals are just trying to get by as best they can after being crippled by their own culture and the
lack of a basic education.  "CAPITALISTS" to "THE TRASH HEAP," is pure Marxist propaganda and
the product of their psychological conditioning in America's classrooms. The Story of Stuff video,
mentioned below, is being shown in primary schools to teach students to hate the capitalist/free enterprise
      In any event, the National Day of Action to Defend Public Education and Against Privatization had
the support of mostly Left-Wing groups like the Socialist Party of the United States, and radical groups
like the Students for a Democratic Society; best known for bombing the New York City Police
Department Headquarters, the United States Capital Building and the Pentagon in the early 1970s.  Most 
of these bombings were carried out by William Ayers, co-founder of the radical group the Weather
Underground, and another buddy of Barack Obama.  Nice bedfellows.
      The call "against privatization" of education is probably meant to keep all students in public schools
so that they can be indoctrinated into the Left-Wing beliefs of their teachers.  Private school students
and home-schooled students just wouldn't be available for this sort of brainwashing and psychological 
      Well, on to other things, like the 20-minute video being shown in American classrooms entitled The
Story of Stuff; a catchy title to appeal to grade school kids.  This piece of anti-capitalist propaganda was
put together by Greenpeace member Annie Leonard.  Now why would environmentalists promote the
bashing of the American system of free enterprise?  Could it be that the environmental movement is the
new route to Marxism?  Yup.  This is another example of the psychological conditioning that is being
carried out in America's public schools to promote the ideas of Marxism.
       A teachers' union recently produced a video showing rich people urinating on poor people.  In the
classrooms of America students are being taught that the rich obtained their wealth from poor people by
unfair means.  This is the Marxist idea that there is only so much wealth available and that this wealth
must be "redistributed" to the poor as a matter of "fairness."  Russian writers, recognizing the path that
the United States is taking toward Marxism, have voiced warnings to Americans not to go down the path
that led to death and destruction in the former Soviet Union.
      The National Education Association has on its web site as "recommended reading" two books by the
1960s Marxist radical Saul Alinsky.  The books are Rules for Radicals and Reveille for Radicals.  In
for Radicals on page 3 Alinsky writes that the purpose of the book is "How to create mass
organizations to seize power."  On page 10 he writes, "A Marxist begins with his prime truth that all evils
are caused by the exploitation of the proletariat (workers) by the capitalists.  From this he logically
proceeds to the revolution to end capitalism, then into the third stage of reorganization into a new social
order of dictatorship of the proletariat (workers), and finally to the last stage -- the political paradise of
communism."  Below is a picture from the Communist "paradise" of the former Soviet Union. It is a
cart of dead children intentionally starved to death by the Soviets to eliminate untrustworthy elements
from Soviet society.
      That Saul Alinsky would have recommended doing such things is exposed on page 25-26 of Rules for
Radicals"The means-and-ends moralists, constantly obsessed with the ethics of means used by the Have-
Nots (proletariat) against the Haves (capitalists)...the most unethical of all means is the non-use of means."
And this on page 29, "The third rule of ethics of means is that in war the end justifies almost any means." 
In one interview Saul Alinsky said that up to 25 million people might have to be "eliminated" in the United
States once the proletariat seized power.  He later denied making the statement.
      Under the heading of "Tactics" on pages 127-134 number 15 says, "Ridicule is man's most potent
weapon...Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it."  Left-Wing radicals, when caught in a
situation where they have no answer for their critics, turn to ridicule to deflect criticism.  And this ridicule
is often directed personally at their critics.  You can observe this tactic being used almost every day in the
more Left-Wing news media like MSNBC any evening.  Critics of Barack Obama and his policies are
given derogatory psychological labels in what they call the "psycho corner" of the Ed Show.
                                                           Barack Obama teaching Saul Alinsky's principles.
      In his autobiography, Dreams from My Father, Barack Obama says this on page 100 to 101; "To
avoid being mistaken for a sellout, I chose my friends carefully.  The more politically active black students.
The foreign students.  The Marxist Professors and structural feminists and punk-rock poets."  Barack
Obama's alma mater, Harvard University, even teaches a course with the title, Does Communism Deserve
Another Chance?  Saul Alinsky was a psychopath and an avowed Marxist.  Why would a president of the
United States, Barack Obama, heap praise upon such a monster?
      Beginning in the 1960s, Marxists brainwashed hippie types into hating the United States as part of the
Vietnam anti-war movement run by the Soviet KGB.  These hippies, and their children and grandchildren,
are still with us today and infected with this same Marxist hate for the United States.  You can even sense
hints of this hatred from Barack Obama and his wife.  Many of these America-haters are now teaching in
our public schools.  The poster below has been put up in many public schools in the United States.
     Students are asked to pledge their allegiance, not to the United States, but to some environmental/
animal "rights" nut-case agenda.  Students are openly being asked to become "citizens of the world"
instead of American citizens, and this is part of the Marxist/Left-Wing agenda.
      One characteristic of all totalitarian, Marxist dictatorships has been the cult of personality in which
the supreme leader is worshiped in a god-like manner; satisfying the apparent human need for some form
of religion.  So we have today the "Dear Leader" of Communist North Korea, Kim Jung Il; and in the
past "Chairman Mao" of Communist China; "Uncle Joe," Joseph Stalin of the former Soviet Union; and
the infamous Pol Pot of Communist Cambodia where millions of innocents were slaughtered after the
anti-Vietnam War protesters got the United States to abandon the region.  Yes, the anti-Vietnam War
protesters have the blood of millions of innocent men, women and children on their ignorant, moronic
     Today we see another figure rising up through the cult of personality, Barack Obama.  Barack
Obama's Department of Education, with the help of the National Education Association, has provided
lesson plans and guidelines by which Barack Obama is to be worshiped by American school children. 
The most obvious evidence of this indoctrination has been songs which the children have been made
to sing in praise of Barack Obama.  An example of such songs is shown in the lyrics presented below:
Mmm, mmm, mm!
Barack Hussein Obama
He said that all must lend a hand
To make this country strong again
Mmm, mmm, mm!
Barack Hussein Obama
He said we must be fair today
Equal work means equal pay
Mmm, mmm, mm
He said that we must take a stand
To make sure everyone gets an equal chance
Mmm, mmm, mm
Barack Hussein Obama
He said red, yellow, black or white
All are equal in his sight
Mmm, mmm, mm
Barack Hussein Obama
Mmm, mmm, mm
Barack Hussein Obama
      Now I am sure that the second-graders who sang this song also composed the song as Left-Wing
defenders have claimed.  Yeah...right.  This is an example of innocent children being put through political
indoctrination by psychological conditioning.  In other Obama propaganda for young people, children are
being told to challenge their parents about their political beliefs and tell them to support the policies of
Barack Obama.  This is a tactic that has been used by all totalitarian dictatorships from Adolf Hitler to
Mao Tse Tung, and it is all in support of the cult of personality being established by Barack Obama and
the extreme Left in the United States.
      In a speech Barack Obama said that the United States should have a civilian security force equal in
power and funding to the United States military forces.  That was what the Nazi SS and Brownshirts
were all about - thugs to enforce the orders of the Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler.  You can hear this proposal
will see American school teachers indoctrinating public school students into the Barack Obama cult of
           "He  alone,  who  owns  the  youth,  gains  the  future."
                                                        -- Adolf Hitler, Mein Kampf
      Like Adolf Hitler, Barack Obama knows that the way for hippie/Marxist liberals to remain in power
is to recruit young people through a process of psychological conditioning in America's public schools.
Barack Obama has enlisted the Department of Education and other government agencies to achieve this
end.  But this psychological conditioning does not only take place in America's public schools but in its
universities as well.  Harvard University in the People's Republic of Massachusetts recently claimed that
parades on the Fourth of July are Republican propaganda being used to get people to vote for Republican
candidates.  The fact that some people might believe this shows how twisted thinking has become in Left
Wing universities like Harvard.  Harvard University also teaches a course with the title Does Communism
Deserve Another Chance.  It must be obvious to even the most casual observer that you can't get more
Marxist than that.
      In his book, Obama Zombies: How the Liberal Machine Brainwashed My Generation, Jason Mattera
comes right out and says that America's youth has been psychologically conditioned by the public school
system to accept liberal/Marxist ideology.  When Jason Mattera interviewed college students he found them
to be clueless about important national and international issues.  When they did answer Mattera's questions
they parroted liberal/Marxist propaganda and were unable to expand on their answers.  It appears that, like
Hitler, Lenin, and Mao, Barack Obama does own the youth of America.
    In the book, A Slobbering Love Affair: The True (and Pathetic) Story of the Torrid Romance Between
Barack Obama and the Mainstream Media, Bernard Goldberg exposes the uncritical worship of Barack
Obama by the mainstream media in the United states.  One is reminded of the newsreels showing hysterical
woman in Nazi German in their adoration Adolf Hitler.  This is exactly how the cult of personality works.
    Teachers in Louisiana recently staged a protest against reducing funds for schools to keep the state from
going bankrupt.  The teachers claimed that this illegal one-day strike was for the benefit of students who
would be harmed by the budget cuts.  Just as in Wisconsin earlier, what these hags were really protesting
was any reduction in their bloated and unfairly excessive pensions and benefits.  It is these criminally
large pensions and benefits for teachers that harm students by using up the bulk of educational spending
that could be going to educate the students instead of unfairly enriching the teachers who, judging from
America's place compared with students around the world, are doing a miserable job of teaching.  Rather
than getting increased pay and benefits, most teachers should have their pay and benefits cut and many
should be fired outright, but the teachers unions protests them.  Franklin Roosevelt warned about allowing
unions to organize public sector employees because they would corrupt public officials and loot public
funds.  A librarian and city union member in California recently retired with a pension in excess of
$200,000 a year, and another city union member, a bus driver in Wisconsin, retired at 55 with a pension
of $100,000 a year.  When the income of the average American is about $50,000, such pensions amount
to the theft of public money by public sector unions.
      The Chicago Teachers Union is demanding a 30% pay increase over two years or they will go on
strike in June of 2013.  Rahm Emanuel, Barack Obama's former Chief of Staff and now Mayor of
Chicago, has said he will cancel an existing 4% pay increase and increase the work day for teachers
from the current 5-1/2 hours - the shortest in the nation.  He is also calling for more charter schools
to reduce the current inner-city dropout rate of 50%.  Chicago is also one of a growing number of cities
considering a "parent trigger" in which parents can take over a failing school, fire bad teachers and
school administrators and even take the school private.  Recently the Chicago Teachers Union president,
Karen Lewis, weighing in at about 500lbs., led a Marxist, red-shirt protest against the proposals of Rahm
Emanuel as seen in the photograph below.  On January 9, 2013 the fat bitch Karen Lewis said that rich
people should have their heads cut off and the teachers in the audience applauded.  American schools are
now run by Marxist teachers and will drive the country to destruction.
      The predominant color of clothing in the photographs of the Louisiana teachers protest below is the
Marxist color red.  It is also the color displayed by most supporters of Barack Obama.
       The United States Department of Education has pumped billions of dollars into the American
educational system with almost no effect.  Graduation rates and tests scores remain largely unchanged. 
The money has been mostly spent to increase teachers salaries and bloated pension plans and to promote 
a left-wing political agenda.  Canada has no national department of education and student graduation rates
and test scores surpass those of American students.  One way to save a great deal of taxpayer money and
end Marxist political indoctrination in America's public schools would be to eliminate the Department of
      An obvious example of the political indoctrination that American public school teachers are carrying
out was recently displayed in a classroom in Philadelphia.  The story is told below:
      Most American schoolteachers are extreme left-wing liberals, and that bias was shown in the story
above.  American schoolteachers have formed a corrupt political bargain with unions and the Democrat
Party, and they will do anything, however mean and cruel, to make sure only Democrats are elected
to power.
