What does Diversity mean to you? Same-sex marriage? Building a giant mosque on the 9/11 spot in New York City? Elena Kagan on the Supreme Court? To the largest teachers union, the National Education Association (known as the NEA), diversity means celebrating the anniversary of the Communist takeover of China by Mao Zedong. That's what the NEA posted on its website calendar as a Diversity Event for October 1. This Diversity activity suggestion for teachers was reported on the website of WorldNetDaily, and then suddenly the Mao calendar item disappeared from the NEA website. That shows how great the internet is and how rapidly it can spread news that is ignored or suppressed by the mainstream media. But parents, Tea Partiers, conservatives, and students can now get around it with the internet and talk radio.
It's hard to make sense out of the fascination that liberals have with Mao, who is known to history as the champion murderer of all time. Barack Obama's Communications Czar, Anita Dunn, called him one of her two "favorite political philosophers." We thought Anita was thrown under the bus after that embarrassment became public, but now she's back with an assignment from the Obama Administration to try to convince the American people that we really like Obamacare, after all. The celebrity heads of this taxpayer-funded propaganda project are former Senator Tom Daschle and Ted Kennedy's widow Victoria.
Anita Dunn is unlikely to succeed in this effort, but the NEA will still be working and spending political money to force national health care on us even though the American people just don't want it. Tell your Congressional candidate to promise to repeal and replace Obamacare.
