Teachers’ Union website offers guides to — not math or reading — the violent overthrow of the U.S. government

Hard as it may be to believe, the recommending reading list of the NEA — the powerful, Democrat-controlled teachers’ union — includes instruction manuals for the violent overthrow of the U.S. government. Two books by radical Communist activist Saul Alinsky advocate violence (“Radicals [must break] the necks of Conservatives”), destruction and revolution.
Incredibly, the following quotes are not cherry-picked from the midst of Alinsky’s texts: they are highlighted on the NEA’s website.
“The Radical does not sit frozen by cold objectivity. He sees injustice and strikes at it with hot passion. He is a man of decision and action. There is a saying that the Liberal is one who walks out of the room when the argument turns into a fight.
“Society has good reason to fear the Radical. Every shaking advance of mankind toward equality and justice has come from the Radical. He hits, he hurts, he is dangerous. Conservative interests know that while Liberals are most adept at breaking their own necks with their tongues, Radicals are most adept at breaking the necks of Conservatives.
“Radicals precipitate the social crisis by action – by using power… The Radical recognizes that constant dissension and conflict is and has been the fire under the boiler of democracy. He firmly believes in that brave saying of a brave people, “Better to die on your feet than to live on your knees!”
“The Radical may resort to the sword but when he does he is not filled with hatred against those individuals whom he attacks. He hates these individuals not as persons but as symbols representing ideas or interests which he believes to be inimical to the welfare of the people… That is the reason why Radicals, although frequently embarking upon revolutions, have rarely resorted to personal terrorism.”
The words unconscionable and outrageous come to mind.
Rather than teach science, math, reading or writing, the NEA advocates the violent ascent of communism.
This organization has no business operating inside public schools.
