This is disturbing and goes to demonstrate the inroads that have been quietly made and just how the hard, Marxist left, continue the work of street organiser Saul Alinsky and his acolyte, Barack Obama, and how they have agitated and penetrated college and university life in the US. As you will read in the cut and paste below, this was Obama’s major work in his 8 years. A week or two back in a separate post I mentioned that we’d be hearing more about the OFA. Well, this is it. This is where the rubber meets the road and explains the jackbooted Brown Shirt behaviour by thousands of activists, Junior Woodchuck Obamas, and Alinskys against Trump and more broadly America, on college campuses.
“….Obama’s private foundation, Organizing for Action, trained thirty thousand young activists while he was president. 47 percent of those who applied to the group’s summer fellowship program spoke a language other than English fluently. … specialized tracks for female and college-aged fellows. … (to send) progressive advocates out into the world of politics.
It is not necessary for the hard-left to win over a majority of their targeted demographics. They only need to create a vocal, domineering minority that gets their hands on the levers of power and money. Nowhere do we see the success of this strategy more than on college campuses.
Jobs for radicals was Obama’s major jobs initiative: get progressives hired on campus, where they recruit thousands of young people, encouraging vulnerable kids to major in grievance studies, then use threats and funds from the federal government, and campus agitation to require more hiring of grievance professors and staff, more power for the hard left.
The transformation of our campuses into Orwellian safe spaces for snowflakes did not happen spontaneously. There was a snow machine behind it all. Obama’s Department of Education sent out a “Dear Colleague” letter to every campus in America, threatening them with sexual discrimination lawsuits and loss of federal funds. Due process for those accused, protection for free speech or freedom of religion, were no longer allowed on campus – our Bill of Rights is redefined as abusive to victims.
Federal money to staff up on thought police followed the Dear Colleague threats. To cover their rear ends, colleges created Bias Response Teams that now supervise the speech of 2.84 million college students. Their speech police monitor politics and “intellectual perspectives,” as well as speech on race, sex, gender, and “shape.” Students and faculty are asked to anonymously report one another to administrators, who are empowered to reprimand, require re-education, even suspension and expulsion. To meet the demand for thought supervision, colleges have staffed up with hundreds of progressive administrators (driving up the cost of college, making administrators more dominant than faculty).
Diversity training began as a requirement for freshmen, to teach them the new rules on approved thinking and train them in white guilt. After holding out for decades against requiring diversity courses, UCLA caved last spring. The new black activists on campuses want even more – they are requiring white privilege and social justice be woven into every course, even engineering and forestry.
Since President Trump’s election, Obama has announced he will devote his efforts to OFA. They have staffed up and opened 250 offices nationwide. Expect more black-masked, violent “protestors” assaulting democracy as we know it – supported by approving press releases from Obama.
The hard left has become a political force in America, with our angry snowflakes as the shock troops. Obama plans for OFA to churn out 2 million millennial agitators. Obama’s Snowflakes
