Eat the rich… Middle class warfare… Bankers to the gallows! Do you still recognize America? Increasingly, and sadly, I do not. Zombie and her intrepid associate Ringo have done a simultaneously brilliant and sobering photo essay on a teacher’s union protest in California – one in Los Angeles, one in San Francisco. With no hesitation, or evidently conscience, teachers brazenly used students in their protests to stop the cutting of funding for education and the unions at the May 13th “State of Emergency” School Funding Protest.
I understand why Zombie felt conflicted. I think we all do. We all want what is best for our children. But trust me when I say that this has very little to do with the children and everything to do with Marxists, Communists and uber-powerful unions. I come from a union family – the Carpenter/Millwright union. And they took care of my family when we needed it the most. But unions have changed. They are not primarily concerned with the workers any more or representing the rank and file of their members. They have morphed into political machines intent on power, wealth and a Marxist agenda that spans the globe. The dues paid are now out of the control of the members. Instead they fuel a monstrous machine that is threatening to crush the US and all of our freedoms. It was hard for me to turn away from the unions as well. But you don’t stay with something out of blind loyalty when it is killing you. Unless of course you long for a horrendous death at the hands of so-called ‘benefactors.’
I started blogging after 9/11, but unlike Zombie, I have always been a conservative Constitutionalist. I fought when Ross Perot ran because I started out really believing in him and his ideals. When I called for private voting ballots and an audit of the books for monies taken from the membership, I was fired. I sat on state Republican committees and believed in their conservative ideals. When I pointed out that these committees should not take perks and favors from paid interests within the party, I was voted out. Now, I consider myself more of a Libertarian and still a conservative Constitutionalist above all else. When I see something I consider morally wrong or unconstitutional, I expose it… I fight and swing away and I always will.
So, it is hard for me to understand why teachers and union members can be so deaf, blind and dumb that they can’t see they are being used for the useful idiots they are. Don’t kid yourselves… You aren’t doing it for the kids. You are doing it out of fear that you will lose your job or your pay, not for the kids. Let me ask you… Is it worth your country’s soul and freedoms so that you can get a few more dollars each month? Money that won’t last and can’t continue. Is it worth your personal freedom so you can have job security while serving a despotic master? Do you even have a sense of right and wrong? I wonder… Because once you view the world through a conservative lens, harsh cold reality hits you between the eyes and you see a bigger picture – one where you are not the center of what is going on. Freedom is the center that holds it all together. Marxism is the bloody tool that rips the fabric of freedom asunder.
I can’t stand seeing the Marxists control our children’s education. Education shapes and molds a child forever in every aspect of life. Marxism is an evil entity that would devour the ideals and creativity of each student and subordinate them to a collective ruling class that will dictate their futures for the rest of their lives. Education should go entirely private in my viewpoint, with vouchers and competition. The public school system is a progressive cancer that needs to be cut out of society and disposed of. Teachers should stand on how good they are; how well they teach our children – not tenure.
Knowingly or unknowingly, we have ceded our children to the State and may G-d forgive us for doing so. Classrooms have become political indoctrination tanks and our children are being brainwashed into servitude and compliance. They are our most precious gift and they are being destroyed. For a number of years, I fought in Nevada just to get our history of the Constitution and the founding fathers taught in our schools. School boards would not let me speak and they would ridicule me. These boards were filled with elitist progressives who felt that dealing with parents was ‘beneath’ them. No matter how hard I fought, I felt I was being defeated and being told to shut up and go away. I never quit fighting and you can see why in this photo essay. I feel a strong mix of anger, sadness and fear looking at these photos. But never once will I ever consider giving up. The Marxists and progressives in our midst must be stopped or we will lose everything we hold dear.
These teachers should not be allowed to bring these students to their protests. It doesn’t matter if the parents give permission or not. They are being forced whether they realize it or not to advocate for political purposes and that is just plain evil. Want to hear what the children are saying at the rally? Check it out:
The rally is not only pushing progressive politics, it is also inciting violence with the help of ‘children.’ They are unwitting pawns being harshly used by the ones controlling the protests. They don’t care about the children – they are using them for political agendas, propaganda and photo ops.
Between this protest and the DOE violating Fourth Amendment rights yesterday by having a S.W.A.T. team break down someone’s door to collect on student loans, there is an urgent need to get rid of the Department of Education as well. No more funding – close it down. Our public school system is beyond broke and needs to be dismantled.
The class warfare crap needs to end and people need to expose the progressives for what they are – Marxists. Whatever you do, if you can at all, get your kids out of the public school system. We are in the fight of our lives folks and we dare not lose.
