Teachers’ Union Recommended Reading: Saul Alinsky

As a parent, do you wonder what your kids are learning in today’s public shool system?

Hmmm. Hmmm. Hmmm?

This may shed some light on the tools teachers are being equipped with to teach our nation’s youngsters.

The nation’s largest union, the National Education Association, has on its website, under Recomended Reading, Saul Alinsky‘s two books:   Reveille for Radicals and Rules for Radicals.

The NEA also quotes Alinsky’s prose:

Alinski, the master political agitator, tactical planner and social organizer didn’t mince words…

Liberals in their meetings utter bold works; they strut, grimace belligerently, and then issue a weasel-worded statement ‘which has tremendous implications, if read between the lines.’ They sit calmly, dispassionately, studying the issue; judging both sides; they sit and still sit.

The Radical does not sit frozen by cold objectivity. He sees injustice and strikes at it with hot passion. He is a man of decision and action. There is a saying that the Liberal is one who walks out of the room when the argument turns into a fight.

Society has good reason to fear the Radical. Every shaking advance of mankind toward equality and justice has come from the Radical. He hits, he hurts, he is dangerous. Conservative interests know that while Liberals are most adept at breaking their own necks with their tongues, Radicals are most adept at breaking the necks of Conservatives.  [Emphasis added.]

Radicals precipitate the social crisis by action – by using power. Liberals may then timidly follow along or else, as in most cases, be swept forward along the course set by Radicals, but all because of forces unloosed by Radical action. They are forced to positive action only in spite of their desires …

Given that the NEA has infiltrated the vast majority of school systems throughout the U.S., not only do kids need to be warned about “Stranger Danger,” it might behoove parents to warn their kids about “Teacher Preacher” as well.
