Charlottesville’s downtown mall is fertile ground for nascent eco-socialists, aggressive progressives, citizen-collectivists and other like-minded political degenerates. At any given time, a panoply of leftists, young and old, convene there, “productively” whiling away the hours.
But, politically speaking, the evening of October 29 was superior to all previous nights on the mall. Fellow travelers Tom Perriello and Barack Obama were slated to appear at the Charlottesville Pavilion to rally the boy-congressman’s flailing re-election campaign. To the ends of the mall and beyond, comrades cued for the chance to witness progressive history.
Conservative activist group,Americans for Prosperity (AFP), seized upon this transcendent circumstance to gauge political sentiment among the assembled throng by conducting random video interviews. While attempting to distribute “Socialism Isn’t Cool” bumper stickers, AFP discovered that to many Obama-Perriello adherents, socialism was cool.
Amidst the admirers was Western Albemarle High School Spanish teacher, Dominique Anderson—a bald faced socialist. During her interview, Mrs. Anderson boldly exhorted the AFP inquirers to “convert” to socialism, vapidly proclaiming the political system (which is responsible for more than 80 million deaths) “totally good.”
When questioned as to why a socialist should be able to plunder the possessions of a capitalist, the bolshevist educator haughtily retorted, “That’s bullshit.”
Several of Dominique Anderson’s former and current students recognized their Spanish teacher in the originally released APF video footage (which was edited for profanity). None was particularly surprised at her avowed love for socialism, but all were solaced that her dreaded classroom antics now were laid bare. So relieved was one pupil, that he contributed this exclusive, telling narrative of his personal experiences inside Mrs. Anderson’s classroom:
She was my teacher in 11th grade. I could always tell she was very liberal, with that making sense now that she’s proclaimed she’s a socialist.
There would be plenty of classes where politics would sometimes come up, and if we wanted to keep from doing Spanish work, there was nothing easier than asking her about her political beliefs —we’d often get a rant that would take up some time.
I remember one class she said something about how awful the health care system in America was and just how Bush was so horrible and America needed to be more like Europe. She was really trashing a country that I am so proud to come from, and I looked at one of my friends, and we were like, is she serious? We both agreed that hey, if you don’t like it here in America, a country we would sacrifice so many things for, quit your ranting and get the hell out. Go back to Europe where everything is ‘so much better’ and just leave our country alone.
When we asked her about her political beliefs, she never wanted to tell us directly what she thought, but when she talked, it was very clear she leaned far left. She seemed to like Obama very much (again, very understandable) and had nothing positive to say about anything conservative.
I wish I could say that she is an exception on the Western Albemarle teaching staff, but so many teachers there are very liberal (I believe some to be bordering on socialism), and even though they might try to not let it influence their teaching, after the first month or so you can always tell who believes what.
I honestly am disgusted by the bias and ill feelings towards conservatives in school. For no reason what so ever should public taxes be funding some of the teachers’ rants at school or their biased influences, many of which clearly go against founding American documents and principles. The sad thing is many people do not know enough to see the bias in front of them, and they come away with a twisted understanding of history, or they leave a Spanish classroom feeling insulted for being conservative, or with a taste of distain in their mouth for having to listen to a teacher during school hours rant about how awful the country is that we live in.
Not since the national exposure of Henley Middle School teacher Margie Shepherd and her anti-American, anti-Christian classroom displays has an Albemarle County government-school teacher so nakedly been revealed for her disdain of American foundational principles—and in this case, for the country, itself.
While all teachers are entitled to personal beliefs and opinions, parents of government-schooled children should be aware of potential anti-American classroom-based indoctrination. And avowed socialists—like Dominique Anderson—who cannot keep their leftist politics out of the classroom should remove themselves (or themselves be removed) from the mandated government-education system.
America, as conceived, will crumble when a majority of her citizens are predisposed to despise her. Thanks to the classroom contributions of leftist government-school instructors, we are well advanced on that path to destruction.
For the most part, young indoctrination-hostages (government-schooled students) subject to the Margie Shepherds and Dominique Andersons of America’s “public” education system cannot defend themselves from attempted anti-liberty brainwashing. It is the public’s responsibility, once notified, to recognize and counter these ongoing subliminal (and sometimes overt) assaults—the nation’s future depends on it.
