Bad people send their children to private schools

Now the call goes out to sacrifice one’s children on the altar of Progressivism. What Mother Nature has done for us, encoding our DNA to sacrifice for the sake of our progeny, the Progressives apparently have had that particular piece of DNA lose its way into the strand. Perhaps this explains their often incomprehensible view of the world. So here we go, am I the only one who sees some similarity to Hitler’s view of the German youth?

While most would probably argue that prioritizing your child’s future over a collectivist political agenda makes you a better parent, Slate‘s Allison Benedikt argues today that moving your kids from a failing public school to a successful private schools makes you something of a horrible person

Benedikt writes :

You are a bad person if you send your children to private school. Not bad like murderer bad—but bad like ruining-one-of-our-nation’s-most-essential-institutions-in-order-to-get-what’s-best-for-your-kid bad. So, pretty bad.

I am not an education policy wonk: I’m just judgmental. But it seems to me that if every single parent sent every single child to public school, public schools would improve. This would not happen immediately. It could take generations. Your children and grandchildren might get mediocre educations in the meantime, but it will be worth it, for the eventual common good. …

I believe in public education, but my district school really isn’t good! you might say. I understand. You want the best for your child, but your child doesn’t need it. If you can afford private school (even if affording means scrimping and saving, or taking out loans), chances are that your spawn will be perfectly fine at a crappy public school. She will have support at home (that’s you!) and all the advantages that go along with being a person whose family can pay for and cares about superior education—the exact kind of family that can help your crappy public school become less crappy. She may not learn as much or be as challenged, but take a deep breath and live with that

Benedikt seems to agree with MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry: Children don’t belong to families, they “belong to their communities.”   The progressive ideology demands that you bear more responsibility for the collective education of the community than for the educational enrichment of your own child.

Radical Angela Davis Documentary funded by Jada Pinkett Smith

Jada Pinkett Smith Praises Radical Leftist Angela Davis, Finances Pro-Davis Film, so the headline reads. The movie trailer is unbelievable. Where are the McCarthy hearings when we need them once again? These are the people who are now being lionized? Those who would destroy our country? Here we go:

Former Communist Party member and long-time radical left activist Angela Davis is the subject of a new documentary partly financed by Hollywood mogul Jada Pinkett Smith (wife of actor Will Smith), who praised the Lenin Peace Prize winner as a “figure that embodied justice and freedom.”

“You know what was most surprising to me is that the idea of what she [Davis] inspired, not just nationally, but throughout the world, that she became this figure that embodied justice and freedom, and that people all over the world that were fighting for justice and freedom, you know, used her as the symbol in which to forge ahead,” said Smith

Davis was a member of the Communist Party USA (CPUSA) from 1969 to 1991. She traveled to East Germany in 1979 to personally accept the International Lenin Peace Prize. She ran as a vice presidential candidate on the CPUSA ticket in 1980 and 1984, and today she is on the advisory board of the Committees of Correspondence for Democracy and Socialism.

Davis also owned the shotgun that was used to kidnap and kill Marin County Judge Harold Haley on Aug. 7, 1970 in a scheme involving one of Davis’s acquaintances, a crime that led to Davis fleeing from authorities, being placed on the FBI’s 10 Most Wanted List, and facing a trial and acquittal in 1972 on murder, kidnapping, and criminal conspiracy charges. She was found not guilty on all counts.

Of course, she now teaches our children and is a College Professor. She joins the rest of the Marxist Commies that came out of the 1960’s. Those that are not indoctrinating our kids, are in our government. First the trailer before the interview.

 Jada Pinkett Smith Praises Radical Leftist Angela Davis. They speak of “our political struggle.” Really?

No one mentions Communist Dolores Huerta gets Medal of Freedom Award

 Well here is one of the recent winners of the Medal of Freedom that we just didn’t get much of a chance to hear about. Dolores Huerta.
President Barack Obama gave the United States’ top civilian honor on Tuesday to musician Bob Dylan, but how about our gal Dolores?
 So allow me to fill in the blanks and share with you the background of someone who Obama finds worthy of the award. She was the long time partner of the late Richard Chavez, brother of United Farm Workers founder Cesar Chavez. A single mother of 7 children. I think you will find the video heart warming. After a few seconds of letting us know of our “rights” as an illegal, she moves on to tell us how grand it is in Chavez’s Venezuela. I look forward to hearing from Jim, over at Conservatives on Fire

Barack Obama gave the Presidential Medal of Freedom to Dolores Huerta, an honorary chair of the Democratic Socialists of America. Check out the link with their National Political Committee Statement on the European Elections just in case you wondered.
During the ceremony today President Obama admitted he stole her slogan “Yes we can!” for his 2008 campaign.

Heritage reported:

President Obama awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom on Tuesday to Dolores Huerta, an 82-year-old labor activist and co-founder of the United Farm Workers union. DSA describes itself as “the largest socialist organization in the United States, and the principal U.S. affiliate of the Socialist International.”

Huerta has claimed, “Republicans hate Latinos,” and has spoken fondly of Hugo Chavez’s despotic regime in Venezuela. H/T: Gateway Pundit

Radical Dolores Huerta Who Preaches Socialism to American High School Students is Prominently Featured on US Government Website in a Campaign Advocating The Rights of Illegal Aliens.  Here is the video.

Daily Caller is stumped “Who is Valerie Jarrett”

In one of the oddest posts to be found on Valerie Jarrett, came no less from the Daily caller. Edward Klein-“best selling author” wrote the piece. He gives a lengthy list of failures he chooses to lay at her feet- wander over if you care to read- but seems stumped by Obama and his wife being joined at the hip with her. So I will try to help out. The title of his piece is very original “Who is Valerie Jarrett”? My regulars know I just could not let a good Valerie story pass by me.

Trying to figure out Valerie Jarrett’s mysterious hold on Barack and Michelle Obama is a favorite guessing game in the parlors and dining rooms of Washington. No other White House official in history has enjoyed such a unique relationship with both a president and a first lady, and yet the mainstream media have ignored Jarrett’s enormous influence over the shape and direction of the Obama administration.

Valerie is the quintessential insider,” one of her longtime friends told me during an interview for my book, The Amateur: Barack Obama in the White House. “She functions as the eyes, ears, and nose of the president and first lady. She tells them who’s saying what about who, who’s loyal and who’s not. She advises them about who they should see when they visit a city or a foreign country. She determines who gets invited to the White House and who is left out in the cold.”

Here we go Mr. Klein- hope this helps.

Iranian born Valerie Jarrett – the real center of Obama’s inner circle is a great post to start out with if you need a refresher.

Even Obama’s handlers were worried at the time of his running for President, that Jarrett could be a big liability if her background was discovered. 

…her ties to Chicago politicians and her Iranian background, and you have a potential nightmare,” says a Democrat media consultant who worked for Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton. Jarrett may be to Obama what James McDougal was to Bill and Hillary Clinton.

Valerie Jarretts Father-in-Law Vernon Jarrett Head of Communist Youth

It turns out that around this time, Vernon Jarrett was a leader of the Chicago chapter of American Youth for Democracy – the youth wing of the Communist Party.

Chicago communist journalist Frank Marshall Davis was a national sponsor of American Youth for Democracy, as well as being a Progressive Party supporter.

Both Davis and Jarrett worked on the radical Chicago Defender newspaper and in 1948, both served on the publicity committee of the Citizens’ Committee to Aid Packing-House Workers

Later that year, Frank Marshall Davis moved to Hawaii, where he met and mentored a young boy named Barack Obama.

Vernon Jarrett stayed in Chicago, where he became a prominent columnist. Coincidentally he used this column in 2004 to urge black voters to vote in the 2004 Senate primaries for Barack Obama.

Obama’s new slogan ‘Forward’ a Nazi marching song

Washington Times  headline does not tell the whole story. And they are much too kind in their article. These people know exactly what they are doing. It was also a Nazi marching tune. Enjoy the video.

New Obama slogan has long ties to Marxism, socialism

The Obama campaign apparently didn’t look backwards into history when selecting its new campaign slogan, “Forward” — a word with a long and rich association with European Marxism.

Many Communist and radical publications and entities throughout the 19th and 20th centuries had the name “Forward!” or its foreign cognates. Wikipedia has an entire section called “Forward (generic name of socialist publications).”

Barack Obama’s latest campaign slogan “Forward!” also happens to be a Nazi marching tune.
Vorwärts! Vorwärts! was a marching song of the Hitler youth.

What a shock.  H/T:Gateway Pundit

 

Vatican to clean house of Nuns who support Obama’s agenda

I must say, that after reading this, I was unsure what to say. Where is the “concern’ over priests who espouse the same positions? Is this an effort to lessen the influence of women in the Church? And what about “social justice”-they are to be “commended”?  There are others who are more qualified than I to opine on this, and I look forward to comments. While it is commendable that these issues are being addressed, one wonders about the fairness. Why doesn’t the Church crack down on Nancy Pelosi and her comments? Here we go:

The Vatican is attempting to present the measure as a friendly renewal.  However, even the initial announcement of the assessment in 2008 was greeted with severe hostility by leftist nuns in the U.S. The sternly-worded assessment document is not likely to be received with any greater enthusiasm. …

The intransigence and betrayal of many of the women religious in the United states toward Catholic values have been keenly felt in recent months by Catholic bishops – particularly in the fight over religious freedom and abortion funding in President Obama’s health care law, in which religious sisters have played a key role, in Obama’s favor.

In 2010 Speaker Nancy Pelosi thanked the radical Catholic nuns for helping Democrat’s pass their pro-abortion health care bill.

The Vatican put feminist nuns who betray church doctrine on notice today.  The Holy See’s five-year plan will sweep the Catholic church clean of Leftist nuns who betray Catholic values and support Obama’s agenda of funding abortions and attacking religious freedom.LifeSiteNews has the story,

The Vatican’s Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (CDF) has launched a 5-year reform of the Leadership Conference of Women Religious (LCWR), the association of the leaders of congregations of Catholic women religious in the United States representing more than 80 percent of the 57,000 women religious (nuns) in the country.

Based on a 2008 investigation into the nuns, the Vatican evaluation was candid, noting, “The current doctrinal and pastoral situation of the LCWR is grave and a matter of serious concern.”

The CDF doctrinal assessment, released today, criticized positions espoused at LCWR annual assemblies and in its literature as well as the absence of support from LCWR for Church teaching on pro-life issues, women’s ordination and homosexuality.

The CDF said that the documentation “reveals that, while there has been a great deal of work on the part of LCWR promoting issues of social justice in harmony with the Church’s social doctrine, it is silent on the right to life from conception to natural death, a question that is part of the lively public debate about abortion and euthanasia in the United States.”
