Why part two? Since the Governor Scott Walker’s budget fix was passed, legally, the fallout from the left has been psychotic vitriol. So much so that death threats have been thrown around by the leftist against anyone supporting the taxpayer’s efforts to rein in bloated unions out of control taxpayer spending.
In a previous post, I had a video of an illegal demonstration by socialist making threats. In the video was a college student that claimed she wanted to be a teacher, when she grew up. I’m in real doubt that this person will every grow up, but if this person should ever get a job teaching children, then an education will take a back seat to socialist indoctrination.
Vladimir Ilyich Lenin once said, “Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.”
It seems the public labor unions in Wisconsin have adopted that philosophy as mandatory classroom curriculum. Former Governor Jim Doyle signed into law a bill that mandates socialist union values be taught to school children. Listen to this video by Marxist democrats that outline a school curriculum. It requires teaching socialist labor studies, collective bargaining, and social change, as a part of Wisconsin’s socialist labor history.
Just coincidentally, of the three male speakers in the video above;
- Bryan Kennedy was supported by the Marxists of Democratic Socialists of America during his unsuccessful 2004 Congressional run (as a Democrat).
- David Newby serves on American Federation of Teachers committees with Democratic Socialists of America member Don Taylor.
- Andrew Kersten runs the “Social Change and Development” Department at the University of Wisconsin, Green Bay, with Democratic Socialists of America member Harvey Kaye.
Notice the emphasis is not creating an environment where school children will benefit from a quality education, but rather on a Marxist agenda. Providing children with the skills to be productive in today’s competitive job market isn’t a priority. Instead, it is to train children into a collective socialist role for big labor. Creating the next generation’s of wards of the State.
It should be noted that the school boards and administrators did not want this included in the curriculum, but the labor unions supported it and the then Governor Doyle signed off on it. The National Education Association (NEA) also has adopted this socialist agenda and is actively spreading this into other States school districts. This news report from Pennsylvania shows a disturbing homework assignment given to 5th graders.

The NEA’s General Counsel Bob Chanin explained it to his Union members, this way:
It is not that we care about children
It is not about the because we have a great vision of a public school system
It’s because we have POWER!
This is why Wisconsin is the battleground between socialists that want to destroy 235 years of liberty, and parents that want to see their children achieve their potential. But because the unions members are shrinking, they are resorting to violence, death threats and intimidation, to hold onto their power.
This is real and from the Wisconsin Department of Justice:
I want to make this perfectly clear. Because of your actions today and in the past couple of weeks I and the group of people that are working with me have decided that we’ve had enough. We feel that you and your republican dictators have to die. This is how it’s going to happen: I as well as many others know where you and your family live, it’s a matter of public records. We have all planned to assult you by arriving at your house and putting a nice little bullet in your head.
What’s worse and highly irresponsible is the lack of coverage from the media. How many death threats will go unreported until one of these union goons kills somebody? Then it’s too late.
Wisconsin voters voted for Scott Walker to fix the State’s budget problems. He clearly outlined how he was going to do it. School officials have approved Walkers plan to reform labor agreements.
It’s all about choice. Which the socialist don’t want. The Marxist unions are doing everything to prevent free choice. These same unions that want to control the education curriculum. The same unions that want to control how taxpayers money is spent. As the sign in my previous post stated: “I voted for Representation, not Unions”
