“Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.” – Vladimir Ilyich Lenin
In December 2009, though little attention was paid to it at the time, Wisconsin’s then-Governor Jim Doyle signed a bill into law that force feeds unions on schoolchildren:
Wisconsin schools will be required to teach the history of organized labor under a bill signed by Gov. Jim Doyle.
The bill Doyle signed Thursday also requires Wisconsin schools to teach the history of collective bargaining.
The proposal has been around for years but never passed. This year it cleared the Democratic controlled Legislature despite opposition from school boards and administrators who said they didn’t want the curriculum micromanaged.
Labor unions supported the bill.

According to Loudon, the three male speakers in the above video are:
- 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.
As as been noted before: the Battle of Wisconsin is about the future of America…in more ways than one.
