Teachers Fill Marxism Conference to Map Future Indoctrination of School Kids

In September, the Chicago Teachers Union went on strike, shutting down the Windy City’s schools for 10 days.  Many of those same teachers were in attendance on Nov. 10 at the Midwest Marxism Conference held at Northwestern University in Chicago.

The topics of the conference were:

  • Marxism, Crisis & Resistance
  • The Meaning of Marxism
  • The Flint Sit-down Strikes & The Founding of the UAW
  • From Apartheid Schools to the New Jim Crow: Racism, USA
  • The Democrats: A Critical History
  • Russia: A Case Study in Workers Power & Revolution
  • Socialists & Trade Unions
  • Class, Race & the Civil Rights movement
  • Education & Capitalism
  • Lenin’s Theory of the Revolutionary Party
  • Marxism & Women’s Liberation
  • Whose City? Labor, the 1%, and the Democratic Party Machine in Chicago
  • Imperialism: Why Capitalism Creates War
  • Detroit, I Do Mind Dying

Among some of the speakers at the conference was Jesse Sharkey, vice president of the Chicago Teachers Union. Another speaker who kicked off the conference was Becca Barnes, a Chicago teacher, who refers to American capitalists as capitalistic vampires. Barnes told the crowd:

“The struggle here in the United States has entered a new phase. Nowhere have we pointed the way forward more clearly than here in Chicago with the teacher’s union strike.”

One person who attended the conference noted that with the abundance of teachers and their response to the messages and participation in the workshops, it gave a clear message that the Chicago Teachers Union is one with the local Marxists. A number of the workshops were led by members of the local Chicago Teachers Union.

Each of the sessions that this person attended started with congratulating Barack Obama for winning his re-election.  After listening to language filled with hate and anger aimed at America it became obvious to this person that the agenda of the Chicago socialists and teachers was to change society to be more like that of the former Soviet Union. He noticed that the philosophy of mass murderers such as Lenin were upheld and embraced by those in attendance. Teachers strategize on what and how to teach the school kids in Chicago to train them up with the Marxist philosophy.

Eventually the people at the conference discovered that this person was not a communist or socialist and they forced him to leave against his will. Not only was he asked to leave the conference but they told him to leave the entire School of Journalism building there at Northwestern University. His eviction from the conference was caught on camera as you can see below:

After being evicted for not being a Marxist, one has to wonder what the people at the conference had to hide from the outside world. Were they trying to hide the joint efforts of the Chicago socialists and the Chicago Teachers Union? Were they trying to hide their agenda for what they are going to be teaching children in the public schools in the Chicago area?

As I was reading this account I could not help but think to myself that Barack Obama launched his political career in Chicago. Even he has admitted to having numerous Marxists mentors and professors and how much they meant to him and influenced him. Since the conference occurred after the election and Obama no longer has anything to fear about being re-elected I’m a little surprised that he did not show up as a guest speaker for a Marxist conference in his home city of Chicago.

I also noticed in the list of topics how they enjoin Marxism with the labor unions, with the Democratic Party, with women’s liberation, and with racism. They are clearly infiltrating all areas that are associated with today’s liberals and progressives which ultimately make up the Democratic Party.

Parents please take note of this especially if you live in the Chicago area. Do you know what the schools are teaching your children? I would hope this information would cause some concern on the part of parents and grandparents not only in Chicago but throughout the nation. Don’t get complacent thinking that this happened only in Chicago, as it could well be happening in your own area without your knowledge. You owe it to yourself, to your children and to the future of this nation to find out what the public schools are teaching in your area and if indeed they are teaching socialistic philosophies then you seriously need to consider getting your kids out of the public schools as soon as possible!


  • ICOYAR

    If I had my way, I would make Marxism synonymous with terrorism and Nazism within the public conscious. This killed over 200 million people in the span of a century, and yet nobody knows it, or worse, denies it. Possibly will double if Obummer does what he fully intends to do.

    • foxnewslieseveryday

      You wouldn't know what Marxism was if your life depended on it.

  • Screeminmeeme

    This is infuriating.

    Da Tagliare...thx for the article and providing confirmation that what we ''right-wingers'' have been saying all along about the left is true. I guess when you're planning on over-throwing America, you don't want anyone to video your meetings.

    It's too bad that all of those teachers in attendance can't be fired. That they think it's okay to use Marxist strategies to manipulate and influence America's children is disgraceful. Parents should rise up and demand changes...one being that all Marxist teachers be kicked out of America's schools.

    • ICOYAR

      The military HATES Obama. Maybe they will secretly overthrow his tyranny (as well as cap Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton, and Eric Holder in the process). And then threaten to indefinitely hold ANY and ALL communists, fascists, socialists, and Marxists as they prove to be the biggest threat to national security.

      • http://missionoutreach.org Ray Downen

        Are all in our military actually opposed to Marxism? Could all enemies of Marxism "secretly" act in unity to depose our despotic president? I think not, for in every profession we've been infiltrated by enemies of liberty.

    • http://missionoutreach.org Ray Downen

      But in Chicago who opposes our enemies. They ARE our enemies, in bed with Obama. How did they know to evict this reporter? Did he say anything that let his enemies know he was opposed to Marxism? Every student in a Chicago school is a potential enemy of the land of the free. We need to get rid of every teacher who opposes our Constitution. There are many, now even in our lowest grades. Can we no longer rely on public schools being patriotic and godly? Apparently that's how it is.

      • DWinch

        It's not just a Chicago problem but almost every public school in America is nothing but an indoctrination camp producing Marxist by the millions.
        Any wonder we are in the mess we are in now?

        • http://missionoutreach.org Ray Downen

          Many public school teachers are teaching disrespect for the values held dear by patriots of the U.S.A. If the problem began in college and university classrooms, it's surely not now confined to upper grades but is now beginning in kindergarten. I know several good teachers. One I know well is now no longer a patriot, as is another here in Joplin. Many are good. Some are very bad and need to be removed from public school classrooms. But will this happen? It has become nearly impossible for bad teachers to be released from their contract.

    We need to get these commie, fascist, Islamic terrorist codling bunch of scum out of power in these United States.

    Then we need to work our bums off to get our freedoms and rights restored.

    We are the only hope left for this planet and for all those down trodden and less fortunate to look to as their hope for true freedom and all that it brings.

    We must stay united and take the hope, the light, and the right of freedom to every last corner and dark alley and to every last soul in this world.

  • TheSunDidIt

    Marxists and socialists of all stripes make me want to create a new form of "jim crow" laws. We would ban their political participation, their parties and all possibility of their holding offices. Sounds reasonable to me. A lot more reasonable than four more years of the marxist and thief.

  • Bobseeks

    It is time to clean house in our public mis-education system. Get rid of all union teachers NOW.

    • kidcat24

      A lot of those union teachers are republican. More than you know.

      • Doodlebug

        I have no way of proving you right or wrong but, I do know a of some union teachers who are Republican BUT ONLY BECAUSE THE ARE FORCED TO BE! They don't like one bit having to have these fees taken out of their pay checks. I remember a strike when my kids were in school and the hell the teachers paid for reporting to work while the strike was on.They would rather have not belonged to the union. They went to work because they were the CREAM OF THE CROP AND WERE UPHOLDING WHAT THEY WERE PAID TO DO. Sometimes kidcat24, you belong because you must, not because you want!

        • cazie

          They are harrassed beyond belief and ostracised like you wouldn't believe. I'm a conservative who works at a university- not a professor-and the lefties rule the roost. If you're not very thick skinned, it's not pretty. And you're right. They should be more afraid of losing their country; but we may already be too late. They've been teaching this way since the 70's. Where do you think man of the hippies went-back to school to get teaching degrees.

    • dave1234

      My father, after returning from WWII, became a teacher and principal in several schools until 1962, when he quit partly because he could not in conscience participate in the indoctrination that was going on in the Government schools even then. And because he was required to pay dues to the union.

      Where is Tail Gunner Joe McCarthy when you need him. Back in the 1950s his House Un American committee looked at Communist influence in America. He was ridiculed because of this and accussed of being on a witch hunt. Little did he realize that his fear of communist infiltration in America would come true.

    Better find out.

  • soldiermom11

    One little nudge, one little push at a time and we hardly notice. First, teachers start going thru your child's lunch to see if you packed it according to Michelle's mandate, then they coach children who to vote for (always democrats) so that by the time they are adults these kids will be on autopilot to vote liberal. They will not have learned about Anne Frank, or the Nazis, or how George Washington's men almost died from starvation and dysentery fighting for our right to dissent. Next time you see something that's just a "little" bad....be afraid, be very afraid and speak up.

  • victorbarney

    We're in big trouble, but NOT because of this MARXIST TAKEOVER put in place by our more verbally affluent women sex alone! Welcome to Adam's world even before the 1st murderer was even born... However, being Israel by the seed of Joseph, proven by England's "sun never sets on the British Empire," we will be severely punished by the two-witnesses of Revelation, chapter 11 because our Jewish Hebrew-inspired Savior, 'Yahshua," meaning: "Yahshua means salvation" will have u.s. punished first by his two-witnesses of Revelation, chapter 11. When Yahshua, our Savior returns, Babylon/Islam immediately will be totally destroyed in one(1) HOUR(Revelation, 18:10)! Again, just saying what's already has been written in the most sold book in history!

    It's obvious the marxism agenda is in place and will begin with young students so that our country wil be converted over the next 20 years unless we take control of what our teachers are allowed to teach.

    There should be no unions in positions to negotiate with any government in this country. The members of the majority power, democrats and socialists in Chicago's case, continually give the unions what they want in exchange for their votes and kickbacks. That is not a negotiation in good faith. The government raises my taxes to pay the union who donates to their reelection even though it is not in my best interest.

    "Since the conference occurred after the election and Obama no longer has anything to fear about being re-elected I’m a little surprised that he did not show up as a guest speaker for a Marxist conference in his home city of Chicago."

    Here, let me explain it to you. Because he is not done yet. He has no intention of leaving after only two terms. Sometime in the next year or two, especially if the DemocRATS win a majority in Congress in 2014, don't be surprised if there isn't a movement to repeal the 22nd Amendment. Such a repeal was already introduced in the Senate by Harry Reid since Obama was elected. So he has to keep his nose clean at least until that one last con is pulled off.

  • chvietvet

    Becauase I served in the Vietnam War, I am denied all opportunity to work in education in the United States. My qualifications in my field are objectively better than those of any Marxist working in education, although I gained most of those qualifications by working in foreign countries. Federal courts and the courts of the State of Washington back the Marxists whenever they want to exclude a veteran for employment because he fought against their comrades in Vietnam. The U.S. Department of Labor always dismisses discrimination complaints from veterans who have been denied employment because they served in the armed forces. A few weeks ago, Bill O'Reilly gave a protracted lecture stating that denying any Marxist a job because of his political beliefs would be "McCarthyism" and unamerican. Let me get this straight. It is unamerican to deny a Marxist employment through which they can indoctrinate children and convince them that we should be ruled by a dictator. It is not unamerican for those who prefer dictatorship to blackball anyone who has defended American republican and democratic institutions in uniform. In other words, a Communist or Fascist group has an absolute right to take over a profession and deny employment in that profession to anyone who has served in the armed forces. Mr. O'Reilly, what have you been smoking?

    This is the natural progression of government schools. Like the article says, take your kids out. But don't put them into secular private schools either. Many of the teachers there were former public school teachers. So, the solution is to homeschool your kids or put them into a christian school.

    You folks are funny. Don't you realize they've already won? The leftists have intentionally infected and co-opted the news media, entertainment, education, non-profit and the individual jobs in govt too, with the exception of emergency services. What you are complaining about now is the unions and other organizations asserting their power. They've just re-elected Barack freaking Obama, it's over folks. The "rugged individualism" and "ingenuity" of Americans is not common anymore. Most are simply slack-jawed meatheads wondering where their next dollar is coming from and what they are going to watch on TV tonight.

    But the truth is the problem is larger than that. The right really isn't much less absurd and as illiberal as the left. What's really going on is that we have the result from 'the experiment in self-government' that the U.S. is. Man cannot govern himself. He cannot keep from using the authority of democracy to take things and rights from others for no reason other than they just want it. They don't care about rights, the rule of law or even our explicit heritage and constitution. They don't understand economics or science or anything complex, outside of their jobs. The world spins around them and they don't even know how it works. They are fabulously wealthy on the backs of those who came before and they don't even appreciate it. Man isn't ready to be governed by reason. The leftists know that and that's why they are winning. You conservatives are playing checkers while the left plays chess. Lol, you've already lost and your complaining about the wallpaper.

    • Geoff

      'The leftists have the media, education, enternatinment, the government'.... LOL. Explains why neoliberlism is hegemonic then. 'Man isnt' ready to be governmeed by reason'. Yeah, okay, whose reason are you talking about here? there are valid 'reasons underpinning various idelogies, right and left alike. Unions asserting power in the US. Another lol. Are you serious? Oh dear...

      • glennd1

        You are so dopey. Yes, the left failed to ignite the "revolution" in the '60s and there was a liberal backlash against the obvious failures of communism. But at the same time LBJ and Nixon erected a much larger state and the likes of Carter, Clinton, Bush and Obama extended the state into a much larger social role in society. This is the kind of socialism that creeps up on you. Like social security was sold as "an account" or "insurance" when it's plain and simply a welfare entitlement. At the time the left lied so dramatically about the cost to get it through. So yes , while there has not been a communist revolution as so many in the Democratic party worked for for years in teh 20th century, the New left has picked up where the honest leftists stopped.

        Perhaps you don't realize that govt controls half of the U.S. economy now? Last year between fed/state/local, it spent about 6 trillion. Even the most ardent Democrat has had to agree that there are also about 2 trillion in compliance and other costs imposed by the govt, so that brings us to half the 16 trillion. You don't think that's a victory for leftists? You call that neo-liberal? This line of reasoning, that the failure of the revolution and the very modest liberal backlash that unregulated transportation and telecom, is small beer when compared to the ground taken. When combined with takeover of govt worker by organized, communist/socialist unions, it's terrifying.

        Why don't you peddle your weak agit prop elsewhere?
