Published

on

According to FightBack!News, The Chicago Teachers Union has a delegation in Venezuela getting behind strongman Nicolás Maduro’s regime.

The story details that the delegation’s goal is to “learn what they could from Venezuela’s Bolivarian Revolution, exchange views on effective education and to show solidarity with the students, teachers and social movements of Venezuela.”

The delegation members are sharing their amazement at Venezuela’s socialist experiment on a blog called “Radical Educator Collective.”

The even quoted a Venezuelan official declaring that the communes “make society less individualistic since groups of people are working together to decide their needs and how to work collectively towards solutions.”

Delegation member Sarah Chambers wrote, “This is why Venezuela became a threat to the USA.”

She added, “The USA does not want people to realize that another world is possible with justice and love.”

On Twitter, Chambers wrote that the delegation didn’t see a single homeless person during her visit.

In the blog, they argue that Venezuela’s widespread hunger, crime, and basic food shortages are the result of American sanctions and meddling.

The bloggers argued that the “mainstream news is right that there are some issues in Venezuela, but where they are wrong is who has created those issues.”

The aforementioned delegate, Sarah Chambers, is a CTU Executive Board member. She was fired from her teaching job in 2017. WTTW reported on her firing:

“leaving her own classroom to barge into classrooms of other teachers and issue her own instructions to students, interfering with statewide tests, and participating in a scheme to remove and transport students without any chaperone who had cleared criminal background checks, without alerting school officials which students would be missing from class and which students were unaccounted for….”

Chambers, however, argues that she was fired in retaliation for other issues and the CTU eventually got her reinstated, according to a report from the union.

Venezuela is the most lurid example of socialist failure in present times, which many elements of the radical Left in American have ignored.

They’ll either make excuses or completely ignore what’s going on there to deny the obvious failure of their state-dominant ideology.

This has been the case of previous socialist failures such as the Soviet Union and Cuba.

The Venezuelan case is only solidifying the Left’s tone-deafness to the issue of socialist destruction.

MSU Provost Goes Politically Correct by Eliminating the Words “Foreign” and “Alien”

Published

In a recent announcement, Michigan State University Provost Teresa Woodruff declared that the university will stop using the terms “foreign” and “alien” to foster a more “inclusive” environment.

The Morning Watch reported that Woodruff said before the Associated Students of MSU (ASMSU) on October 22, that “we will eliminate from our collective lexicon the words ‘alien’ and ‘foreign.’ Instead, we’ve adopted non-pejorative terms that describe geography.”

The new language directed towards international students would now be “non-domestic” or “international,” the provost detailed. Woodruff added that the change will help “create a culture of not us vs. them, but of each other.”

Woodruff revealed that change was made by the MSU Office of the Provost and went through the Dean’s Council, and the federal government was made aware of these changes.

The ASMSU’s International Students Association representative Nikunj Agarwal declared that the language change is an “essential step” and that change in language will help in “making us feel really inclusive in the community.” MSU has been active over the past year in trying to become more politically correct and “inclusive.”

Back in October 2019, MSU made additional changes to appeal to resident aliens by launching a website for “undocumented students, refugees, and recipients of…DACA.” The website listed a number of goals which consisted of “reducing apprehension, addressing confusion, and giving better access to MSU resources.”

MSU’s President Samuel Stanley was especially shook after Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) agents gave a presentation before an MSU class. Stanley likened the the CBP agents’ visit to campus as acts of vandalism and part of the “concern and anger” at the university.

Public universities are making it clear that they don’t care about free speech and are willing to manipulate language for the sake of promoting political correctness. If conservatives aren’t majoring in high demand fields such as STEM, they should give universities the cold shoulder. There’s no need to subsidize institutions that hate you.
