Phyllis Schlafly on the NEA

The National Education Association is one of the nuttiest groups on the planet. They aren't about education, by the way. They are all about accumulating power for their little fiefdom and about propagandizing young people (and old people, i.e. teachers and parents) into moral relativism. But they went a little too far when they celebrated the anniversary of the Communist takeover of China by Mao on their website. Phyllis Schlafly, with her usual astute insight, wrote:
What does Diversity mean to you? Same-sex marriage? Building a giant mosque on the 9/11 spot in New York? Elena Kagan on the Supreme Court?
To the largest teachers union, the National Education Association (NEA), diversity means celebrating the anniversary of the Communist takeover of China by Mao Zedong. The NEA posted this on its website calendar as a Diversity Event for October 1.
Thankfully, we live in a wonderful era when parents, Tea Partiers, conservatives, and students can rapidly spread the news ignored by the mainstream media. After this activity suggestion for teachers was reported on WorldNetDaily, the Mao calendar item disappeared (without comment) from the NEA's website. Read more....
The foolish folks who celebrate Communism never had to live under Communist tyrants systematically arresting and murdering (take your pick): the intelligentsia, political opponents, Catholic priests and religious, Protestant clergyman,  Jews (remember the pogrom in Fiddler on the Roof? It's based on reality.), homosexuals, etc. ad nauseum. The irony is that if we actually lived under Communist rule, many of the people serving as useful idiots would be the first shipped off to the gulags. Which just goes to show that sin makes people stupid.

So if you haven't been to confession for awhile, go this week. Confession is not only good for the soul; it's good for the mind as well. Those who confess are less of a mess.

Hi, Mary Ann. My dad (1915-2002, FBI 1938-1970) used to say the same thing about "useful idiots": if the communists took over America (which we were afraid of in the 1950s) the first to "go" would be the people who helped them to power.

Love that quote: "Those who confess are less of a mess." True, and catchy too. Thanks!

Thanks. I speak from experience -- which is why I should really get into the Ignatian practice of examining my conscience twice a day.
