Your tax money for education at work.
Via Big Government.
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.)

Ancel and Giljum present violence, militancy, in-your-face-tactics, and industrial sabotage as attributes of organized labor history. “Violence is a tactic”, explains Ancel, “and it’s to be used when it’s the appropriate tactic”.
The students are eager to march in the streets wearing their Che Guevara garb and overthrow our Democratic Republic. Their dialogue is especially entertaining.
“It’s a tactic that should be used at the appropriate time, I believe in the violent overthrow of the bourgeoisie, and that freedom is found at the barrel of a gun, like Mao said and Marx said.”
“Noam Chomsky joined the IAWW last month!” “Is there any sort of rough guess on what percent of the population has to be involved for something to be considered a revolution instead of terrorism?”
“Well you know there are some people whose definition of terrorism is just an army without a defense budget”, says Ancel.
“Noam Chomsky said that, “The number one state sponsor of terrorism is the United States of America”.
Wanna bet the Black Panther wannabe and Perky Gal get an “A” in the course?
In part two, Giljum gives several instances where he and his union pals used threats and intimidation as “negotiating tactics”, including suggestions about sabotaging the equipment, and following the CEO to his church or where he shopped. Ancel really goes of the crazy cliff when she equates fascism with capitalism, proving that she has absolutely no understanding of the difference. She also recounts (with obvious glee) a tactic used by a friend of hers in a union protest in Peru. The Peruvian strikers released dozens of cats into power plants, where they ran around, shorting out the systems. This produced the desired effect of power outages….and lots of dead cats. What an animal lover.
Ancel and Giljum are examples of how unions and Marxist academic intelligentsia go hand-in-hand. Many universities in this country enable socialist-anarchist ideologues to encourage the destruction of the very democracy that protects their ability to get up in front of a classroom of malleable numbskulls, and pour this kind of shit into their minds.
Some of those students may grow up one day to realize the pseudo-socialist bullshit espoused by Ancel and Giljum isn’t conducive to a free society, or the real world.
