Yes, you read that right; the NEA is recommending Saul Alinsky’s books. Is there any doubt now about the Progressive Socialist Democratic Party wrapping up the teacher’s unions in their little freight train toward marxism, thought control of our children, and generational programming to accept serfdom? Public school education is only as good as the people that make the decisions about what is taught; not necessarily as good as the teachers teaching the curriculum.
NEA raves to teachers about Alinsky ‘guidebook’
Recommends texts by radical community organizer who ‘encouraged positive social change’
The National Education Association has made a glowing assessment of radical socialist community
organizer Saul Alinsky and is enthusiastically recommending American public school teachers read two of his books, including one dedicated to Satan.
On its website, the NEA dubs Alinsky “an inspiration to anyone contemplating action in their community! And to every organizer!”
It recommends Alinsky’s “Reveille for Radicals,” a 1946 book about the principles and tactics of “community organizing,” and “Rules for Radicals,” a 1971 text that articulated a socialist strategy for gaining political power to redistribute wealth from the “haves” to the “have-nots.”
The NEA, the largest labor union in the United States, represents public school teachers, college and university faculty, retired education employees and college students preparing to become teachers.
The association describes Alinsky as a “master political agitator, tactical planner and social organizer” who wrote a “guidebook for those who are out to change things.”
“He sets down what the goal is: a society where people are free to live, and also aren’t starving in the streets. A society where there is legal and economic justice,” the NEA explains to educators. “Then he sets out to say how to get there.”
The NEA continues, “Alinsky’s goal seems to be to encourage positive social change by equipping activists with a realistic view of the world, a kind of preemptive disillusionment. If a person already knows what evil the world is capable of, then perhaps the surprise factor can be eliminated, making the person a more effective activist. Alinsky further seems to be encouraging the budding activist not to worry to [sic] much about getting his or her hands dirty. It’s all a part of the job, he seems to say.”
