When that Houston Fox affiliate’s news team followed Maria Isabel into the Obama volunteer office, they apparently failed to take notice of the Cuban flag desecrated with a superimposed image of the mass murderer che guevara.
I couldn’t help but wonder how a trained news team could overlook such a thing. There is a lot of just plain ignorance when it come to el che, but there is also something much more sinister—a misinformed public, misinformed not by accident, but by design.
As Val’s recent post, here, pointed out, “that che image Cuban flag wasn’t there as decoration. It wasn’t there out of naivetee. It wasnt there as an expression of cool chic, it was an ideological and political message.”
Item # 17 from The Goals of Communism:
Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers’ associations. Put the party line in textbooks.
Meet Peter McLaren, Professor, UCLA Graduate School of Education. Ph. D., Curriculum & Educational Theory.
Cuba Socialista describes him thus:
He is considered one of the key worldwide architects of critical pedagogy. An advocate for social justice, particularly those in the ‘Exploited World’ (misnamed ‘Third World’) Prof. McLaren is influenced by a Marxist humanist philosophy. Among his many writings, ‘Capitalists and Conquerors: A Critical Pedagogy against Empire’ (2005) is probably best known in non-academic circles. Venezuela’s Ministry of Higher Education recently inaugurated the Peter McLaren Chair for the Study of Critical Pedagogy at the Universidad Bolivariana de Venezuela. Another recent honor bestowed on Prof. McLaren is Toronto-based Chopbox Magazine creation of the Peter L. McLaren Foundation for Social Change.
Statement of purpose from his vile faculty web page, titled Revolutionary Critical Pedagogy:
This website is developed as a resource for students of critical pedagogy. The critical pedagogy which I support and practice advocates non-violent dissent, the development of a philosophy of praxis guided by a Marxist humanism, the study of revolutionary social movements and thought, and the struggle for socialist democracy. It is opposed to liberal democracy, which only serves to facilitate the reproduction of capital. It advocates a multiracial and anti-imperialist social movement dedicated to opposing racism, capitalism (both in private property and state property forms), sexism, heterosexism, hierarchies based on social class, as well as other forms of oppression. It draws its inspiration from philosophers of revolutionary praxis such as Paulo Freire, Raya Dunayevskaya, and other philosophers, social theorists and political activists and supports all those who yearn and struggle for freedom. Critical pedagogy is opposed to both state terrorism and individual acts of terrorism. As Freire writes in The Pedagogy of Freedom, “Terrorism is the negation of what I call a universal human ethic.” Critical pedagogy is driven by the engine of class struggle in both national and international arenas.

McLaren is not some marginalized campus flake, but a copiously published respected scholar. It is frightening, and he is not alone.
