‘Tens of Thousands of Students’ Expected to Join Communists and Socialists for Climate March this Weekend


Peoples Climate March

My EAGnews.org exclusive:

Tens of thousands of students from more than 300 school campuses are expected to join the People’s Climate March this Sunday, September 21st in New York City.

The Green Schools Alliance, a coalition of hundreds of schools throughout the U.S. and more than 4,000 schools nationwide, is a coordinating partner for the event.

According to the global climate change organization, 305.org:

In response to the United Nations’ Emergency Climate Summit, an unprecedented surge of tens of thousands of students from more than 300 campuses will join the People’s Climate March, which is anticipated to be the largest demonstration on climate change in history. Students have built a movement on hundreds of campuses to demand fossil fuel divestment and local solutions, and they’re joining the movement to demand bold climate action and an end to extractive industries as President Obama and world leaders meet at the United Nations.

President Obama, several world leaders, and as many as 120 heads-of-state are slated to gather Tuesday, September 23rd for the 2014 United Nations Climate Summit. The People’s Climate March is intended to preclude the summit to draw attention and support.

Not unlike most climate change events, Sunday’s march through the streets of Manhattan will be attended by a slew of anti-war activists and Israel haters — indicating once again that, at least for many of those in the lead, the save the planet movement is not really about saving the planet.

For example, according to Peoplesclimate.org, partnering organizations in coordinating the march include Code Pink, International Socialist Organization, Freedom Socialist Party, SEIU, AFL-CIO, and the Communist Party USA.

Frightening to think, isn’t it, that thousands of students will be marching alongside organizations like these?

Code Pink, an extreme anti-Israel organization shown to have ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, has announced that there will be a Peace, Justice and Climate rally before the march. Speakers at the rally will include Code Pink founder, Medea Benjamin, and Tom Hayden, former California senator and former member of the 1960s domestic terrorist group, the Weather Underground.

Also a coordinating partner is the BlueGreen Alliance (formerly known as the Apollo Alliance), an organization whose New York office is led by yet another former member of the Weather Underground organization, Jeff Jones.

Van Jones, the former Obama “green jobs czar” who once proclaimed himself a communist, is also with BlueGreen Alliance.

According to its website, People’s Climate plans to have a “Free Palestine Block” at the march to highlight the “genocide” and “grave injustices committed by Israel against the Palestinian people.”

The organization claims the reason they decided to include the Free Palestine Block is because it came to their attention that the march is “being endorsed by several Zionist organizations that support the occupation and destruction of Palestine.”

Peoplesclimate.org goes on to say:

…given the current massacre of the Palestinian people at the behest of a US/Israeli military-industrial complex that is one of the largest consumers of fossil fuels in the world— having Zionists at a climate justice march doesn’t seem to make sense.

Does any of this even make sense?

Regardless of anyone’s stance on global warming or man-made climate change, it doesn’t make sense that schools and even entire school districts are partnering with organizations that would coordinate with and march along side communists and terrorists in the name of climate change.

Parents be warned about this march. It promises to be a very radical event.

Where #OccupyWallStreet Really Began — Obama’s Hand in the Movement


By Danette Clark    May 3, 2012

“When an opponent declares, ‘I will not come over to your side,’ I say calmly,
‘Your child belongs to us already. What are you? You will pass on. Your
descendants, however, now stand in the new camp. In a short time they will know nothing but this new community.”
– Adolf Hitler

Since protesters first began setting up their drug dens, love shacks, and hippie huts in downtown Manhattan on September 17th, we began questioning whether Occupy Wall Street is really a grassroots movement, as it claims to be, or a movement manufactured and orchestrated by communist and socialist organizations.

We know now that OWS has received financial support from George Soros, Louis Farrakhan, and SEIU, among others. But where did it really begin? How do people living in a country with more freedoms and opportunity than any other place in the world develop a mindset of entitlement and come to believe that we are a racist, imperialist nation whose free market system is oppressive?

I believe Occupy Wall Street is both a grassroots movement and a movement manufactured by communists, socialists, and progressives — and most certainly with the help of Barack Obama.

This movement began decades ago. While we were busy building homes, pursuing careers, and planning for retirement, OWS was being incubated in classrooms across the country. There are thousands of social justice schools in America that have, for decades, brainwashed youth with a distorted view of history and reality, and a general hatred for America, its founders, and its capitalist economic system.

Although education reformers like John Dewey and G. Stanley Hall led the way in secularist indoctrination in America’s schools as far back as the 1800s, the most successful push came in the 1990s, with the help of our president.

When Obama worked with William Ayers through the Chicago Annenberg Challenge from 1995 to 1999, they funneled large sums of money to an education reform movement that Ayers had already worked with for some time, Theodore Sizer’s Coalition of Essential Schools.

In fact, the Chicago Annenberg Challenge was created by the Annenberg Institute, whose stated mission was to build upon the work of Sizer’s Coalition of Essential Schools and to support sustained focused efforts to expand education reform to youth across the country.

The work of Ayers and Obama through the CAC, combined with the work of Ayers’ Small Schools Workshop, literally parlayed a group of approximately 200 progressive schools into a network of over 1,000 in a little over a decade. When you consider that CES has dozens of partner organizations and affiliates working within various school districts across the country, the number of radical schools in America is actually much greater than 1,000 and almost impossible to count.

Although financial backing is crucial to the survival of a movement like OWS, the movement would not exist without the many years of groundwork. After all, to quote William Ayers, “education is the motor-force of revolution” and “Teaching . . . urges revolutions large and small”.

So, in all fairness, we should give credit where credit is due. As re-writers of history, developers of curriculum, designers of “smaller learning communities”, teachers, organizers, promoters, and guest speakers in these schools of social justice, these are some of the real people behind the OWS movement:

• Communist, domestic terrorist and former co-founder of the Weather Underground Organization, William Ayers

• Communist, domestic terrorist and former member of the Weather Underground Organization, Bernardine Dohrn

• Communist, Maoist, and former member of the Weather Underground Organization, Mike Klonsky

• Communist and former member of the Weather Underground Organization, Howard Machtinger

• Ex-prisoner, communist, and former member of the Black Panther Party, Angela Davis

• Communist, the late Howard Zinn

• Communist and former “green jobs czar”, Van Jones

• Socialist and developer of critical race theory, Derrick Bell

• Socialist and admirer of the Black Panther Party, Cornel West

• Champion of Black Liberation Theology, Rev. Jeremiah Wright

• Top education advisor to Obama’s presidential campaign, Linda Darling Hammond

• And last, but not least, President of the United States, Barack Obama

As president, Obama has continued to boost social justice education, specifically CES schools and its affiliates. During his first two weeks in office, he publicized a visit to CES’s Capital City Charter School in Washington, D.C., praising it as innovative and stating “this is how schools should be”.

The president has held several town hall meetings at CES schools, visited countless others, and awarded billions in grants to progressive schools and education initiatives.

Obama’s education plan calls for small schools and smaller learning communities and makes specific reference to TRIO and Upward Bound, which are federally-funded programs that were instituted for the benefit of underprivileged students but have since been overtaken by social justice educators and used for the indoctrination of children through after school and summer programs.

CES has partnered with both TRIO and Upward Bound in the creation of new schools.

President Obama’s education plan also specifically touts the North Carolina Teaching Fellows program which was, until recent years, directed by Howard Machtinger, former Weather Underground member and bomb-making buddy of William Ayers.

Other notable mentions for their “contributions” to social justice education and the birth of the OWS movement:

• Dolores Huerta (now head of the US Department of Labor) for her memorable speech at Tuscon High Magnet School wherein she told students the theme of the day is “Republicans hate Latinos…Republicans hate Latinos.”

• Poway Unified School District which allows an annual school sponsored National Day of Silence in conjunction with the Gay Lesbian and Straight Alliance (GLSEN – led by Obama’s ‘safe schools czar’, Kevin Jennings), but does not allow students to wear t-shirts with bible scripture on them expressing their opposition to homosexuality.

• St. Paul Public Schools for promoting the White Privilege Conference to students and Seattle Public Schools for going so far as to transport students to another state to attend the conference (on the tax payer’s dime).

• Methuen Public Schools and Marblehead Public Schools for transporting students in two public school buses to a GLSEN and Planned Parenthood sponsored conference about how to practice homosexual sex. At the conference, students were given “fisting kits” for use in oral sex.

And who can forget all those videos of children being led by their teachers to sing praises to Obama? The North Sore Tea Party provides an extensive list of indoctrination videos here.

Aaron Klein and Brenda J. Elliott’s latest book, Red Army: The Radical Network that Must be Defeated to Save America, devotes two chapters to social justice education and provides the names of several schools, organizations, and curriculums to keep an eye on.

Michelle Malkin also has some great articles on indoctrination. Look for those on the web.

Please find out where these schools are in your area and contact your local representatives, school board members, and even your governor. Look at your children’s history books and ask questions about what they are learning.

Livestream of Today’s ‘Global Revolution’ Provided by Van Jones-Affiliated Social Justice Media?


By Danette Clark    September 17, 2011

Livestream.com’s Global Revolution channel will provide live feed of today’s “Occupy Wall Street” protests.

Adbusters.com, Occupywallst.com, USDayofRage.org, and other anti-capitalism organizations with hopes of creating “an American Tahrir Square” will descend on downtown Manhattan to show that they blame Wall Street for its “financial capture of the US political system”.

From Livestream.com’s global revolution channel:

This channel will feature live streams from global non violent revolution spreading across the globe”, with the first broadcasts from Wall Street Occupation in NYC. The channel will also feature live stream from solidarity protests and events in Spain, Greece, France, Belgium, Iceland and other places around the globe.

Leading up to the protests at Wall Street, which are scheduled to begin today at 3:00 pm, the global revolution channel is running video after video of far left propaganda (including questionable history lessons) and footage of recent protests in Spain, Greece, and the Gaza Strip.

The channel banner for the global revolution channel on livestream.com depicts a logo that I recognize as the same logo used by Indymedia in Oakland, California.

Indymedia is funded by the Tides Foundation, which supports a slew of radical leftist organizations, and which has received millions in donations from George Soros’ Open Society Institute.

According to DiscovertheNetworks.com, Indymedia is an enormous news and events bulletin board with local pages in most of the world’s major cities, which provides a vital link for radical activists, often with violent agendas, to coordinate their protests.

Indymedia’s website boasts violent rhetoric such as calls to disband the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) Police, referring to them as pigs and making obscene statements like “all police are murderers.”

Indymedia’s fiscal sponsor is Media Alliance.

Media Alliance refers to itself as “… a media resource and advocacy center for media workers, non-profit organizations, and social justice activists.”

Obama’s former green jobs czar, Van Jones, was chairman of the board of Media Alliance in 1998.

Today, Oriana Saportas, an ACORN and SEIU organizer, sits on the board.

Media Alliance and Indymedia work closely with and support the activities of many far-left organizations, including the Van Jones-founded Ella Baker Center and The Data Center, whose founders are closely tied to both Van Jones and communist William Ayers.

Indymedia has also received funding from George Soros’ Open Society Institute.
