UMKC and UMSL are allowing violent lefties to teach what amounts to a how-to course in union thuggery and violent revolution under the pretext of “Labor Studies”. And a citizen journalist caught it on tape.
Big Government is rolling out the videos one at a time.
Recently, the University of Missouri-St. Louis (UMSL) and the University of Missouri-Kansas City (UMKC) sponsored two college courses: Introduction to Labor Studies and Labor Politics and Society, to be taught simultaneously through a video conference between to two campuses.
The Professors are Judy Ancel, Director of Labor Studies at UMKC and Don Giljum, business manager for the International Union of Operating Engineers at Ameren UE in St. Louis. (Bonus: he is a member of the Communist Party.)
Some chilling quotes from the video:
“Industrial sabotage… certainly does (have its place).”
“I can’t honestly say I haven’t been in a position where I haven’t wanted to inflict harm on somebody…”
“Violence is a tactic…”
“I believe in the violent overthrow of the bourgeoisie and that freedom is found at the barrel of a gun…”
“I don’t necessarily want to be part of a capitalistic society, I want to take over the state with a revolutionary movement.”
“Is there any sort of rough guess on what percentage of the population has to be involved for something to considered a revolution instead of terrorism?”
“Instead of what?”
Notice all the nervous titters…
“Most people wouldn’t begrudge violence when it’s self-defense — when they’re under attack, and I think it’s really easy to frame labor issues as self defense….”
“I hesitate to take anything off the table”.
These people are scary. And they are growing in strength and number…because of Marxist professors like these guys.
LaborUnionReport writes what we’re all thinking:
While the University’s Institute of Labor Studies may only be a small fraction of its budget, one must wonder why tax dollars are being used to fund a program that espouses Communism, teaches tactics in industrial sabotage (including stalking CEOs, using members to insinuate sabotage, as well as the killing of cats), and convincing union members that their “group goals” are more important than their individual goals.
Will the MSM show any interest in this? I wouldn’t bet on it.
As I’ve previously reported, 11% of Americans polled believe that Communism is morally superior to Capitalism. How many of them are media elites?
And why do they keep talking (right out in the open) about violent revolution? Is it because they know they have a fellow traveler in the White House?
Dr. John Drew Ph.D, an author, trainer, and consultant knew who Obama at Occidental College in California, says back in the day, Obama was a revolutionary Marxist:
Yeah, you’ve got that exactly right. Obama believed, at the time I met him, this was probably around Christmas time in 1980. I’d flown out on Christmas break from Cornell, where I was in grad school. And Obama was looking forward to an imminent social revolution, literally a movement where the working classes would overthrow the ruling class and institute a kind of socialist Utopia in the United States. I mean, that’s how extreme his views were his sophomore year of college.
…I was a comrade, but I was more… the Frankfort School of Marxism at the time. I was, I felt like I was doing him a favor by pointing out that the Marxist revolution that he and Caroline and Shandu were hoping for was really kind of a pipe-dream. And that there was nothing in European history, or the history of developed nations, that would make that sort of fantasy, that Frank Marshall Davis fantasy of revolution, come true.
Q: So you had a realistic sense that, even though you liked these ideas, that you knew they wouldn’t really work?
A: Right… [There were some] who were puzzled why they didn’t see Marx’s predictions come true, and weren’t interested in the role of psychology or false consciousness in preventing a revolution from happening. I was a card-carrying Marxist, but I was more of an east coast, Cornell University Marxist at that time.
Q: But Obama thought it was practical. He thought it could happen in America?
A: Oh, yeah! He thought I was a little reactionary… or insensitive to the coming needs of the revolution! He was full-bore, 100% into that very, kind of simple-minded Marxist revolutionary framework.
His fellow travelers, today:
It’s no wonder why ordinary Americans are stocking up, arming themselves and going to “survival camps”. They sense something is very wrong–that some sort of national calamity is right around the corner. We tell ourselves that things like “violent revolution” could never happen here …..but could it?
