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!
