The grande dame of the Hard Left, Columbia University Professor Francis Fox Piven, got a shock at a Pennsylvania college recently.
Hot Air reports that Piven was lecturing students about (of all things) “propaganda” and inserted a line about Tea Partiers being racist. One student had the audacity to shout out:
“As long as he follows the Constitution, we don’t care what color he is!” (cheers erupted from the students).
Read the story here and watch the clip—it is so heartening to see young people willing to push back against Leftists like Piven.
We have written about Piven on several occasions. You may recall that she and her late hubby came up with the so-called Cloward-Piven strategy (in the 1970s) of creating chaos by manufacturing a crisis, overloading the welfare systems of major cities which in turn, they theorized, would crash the economy and transform the government. Author Jim Simpson warned us about it in 2008, here, in American Thinker.
Back in April we told you that “Pinko” (her word!) Piven was attempting to stir up your kids on college campuses through electronic teach-ins, here. Whatever made her think she might succeed at MESSIAH COLLEGE!
My theory is that people like Piven (Bill Ayers, Wade Rathke and others) are getting old and with Obama in the White House they have come as close as they ever have to “changing” America, so they are desperate to see the revolution before they die. Our job is to make sure they don’t! (See the revolution, that is).
