In a May 28 email dispatch to “all school division employees,” Albemarle County Public Schools Superintendent, Dr. Matt Haas, shared his recent personal reading list:

  • Robert E. Lee: A Biography, by Emory M. Thomas
  • Caste: The Origins of Our Discontents, by Isabel Wilkerson
  • Not War But Murder: Cold Harbor 1864, by Ernest B. Furgurson
  • Rules for Radicals: A Pragmatic Primer for Realistic Radicals, by Saul Alinsky

As an added bonus, Haas offered a “free” copy of any of the above to four lucky individuals, who were among the first to respond.

In a division where institutional Marxism—via daily Critical Race Theory indoctrination—is being force-fed to hapless students, Dr. Matt Haas’ reading list is no surprise. And his free “Rules for Radicals” (a book inspired by Satan) giveaway could not be more appropriate or well-suited to Haas’ (or Lucifer’s) cause.


  1. This would also be a good reading list for the Socialists and Communist Parties. Where is McCarthy when you need him.

  2. Claiming that Rules was inspired by Satan because the agnostic author cited him as a fellow rebel and would rather spend a possible afterlife with the have nots — have you ever thought about Jesus‘s words and ministry? — is the sort of thing that makes you guys laughingstocks not just to progressives but to responsible Republicans. Not to mention that of Alinsky’s 13 Republicans rules I count almost half that you routinely practice.

    “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.”

    “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.”

    Sound familiar? ’How low will you go’ is not even a question anymore.

  3. Oh my, my! Oh hell yes! You forgot to put on your party dress, Dr. Haas! Is this the last dance? Tom Petty was a great artist. This is a great song, don’t you agree? Ahh, good times, good times!

    I digress, what in the dog-diggity-heck are you thinking??? Saul Alinsky??? Really? We’re you high on Mary Jane when you wrote this email? If you were not, then were you given money from any Communist Party entities? Do you really believe the Patriots of AlbamarleCo will stand for this?

  4. @Ken, your agnostic hero, cites the enemy of the one and only creator of mankind. While you are willing to chance an eternity of hell, I as a Christian, refuse to let that happen to you. I Love you, you are my brother in Christ and I will pray to God to remove the orphan spirit that is residing in you to leave at once. O Prince of the Heavenly host, by the power of God, cast into hell Satan and all the evil spirits who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.

  5. HITLER YOUTH! Critical Race Theory is tantamount to the indoctrination that the Nazi’s started with children knee high. They were taught terrible and evil things. No one should ever give their blessings for this socialist indoctrination. CRT is RACIST. CRT is RACIST.

  6. This is NOT normal! Would Superintendents, Principals, School Counselors and Teachers, teach their own children sexual perversion and deviancy? These ludicrous teachings are neither age appropriate or acceptable for kindergarteners through high schoolers. Many of the subjects are of a dangerous nature;psychologically, physically and medically. Kids are not ready for this exposure at their ages! It’s almost as if these school board members and superintendents and principals are FROTTEURS (Joe BIDEN, JEFFREY TOOBIN) waiting in the wings only to graduate to being serial sexual child abusers! Get away from our children!!!!

  7. Calling all Albemarle Patriots!
    Superintendent Matt Haas is sanctioning this indoctrination and is doing so with the blessing of the Albemarle Co School board. It is being pushed hard in a rapid fire roll out by the inept and bumbling principal, Beth Costa. These are facts.

    Investigation is needed into the finances of each one of these school officials who are pushing this perversion and hate. If you know something, say something! We must reveal any monies received by our school officials from the communist party. We will not let the CCP take down our country by targeting our American children. Let’s dig! Speak up!

  8. Haas’ reading of Wilkerson also does not surprise me; I reckon Haas believes–like Wilkerson does–that we’re a caste system in the US. If Haas was not such an implanted flunky of the government schools, I’d assume he was reading those for intellectual growth. However, given his pedigree, I’d more suspect he is reading them for validation. What a pathetic school system has developed in Albie.

  9. Should one be surprised whatsoever that this is Dr. Haas’ latest reading list? It would appear that he perceives himself to be superior to those he has been hired to serve, despite his obsession with political pornography, yet I’m less concerned with what material he reads on his own time, than the garbage his Apparatchiks cram down our public school staff and students K-12 (Kendi, for example).

    The specific issue(s) of Alinsky’s alleged “agnosticism”, or “Marxist” leanings, or affinity with “Satan”, are largely irrelevant – they are all useless distractions to the main point of “Rules for Radicals”, which is basically a practical guide on how to disrupt and effect change. Alinsky, himself, was not evil, he effected change, often with the backing and encouragement of Christian Clergy, advocating for the “have nots”, by organizing them. Left and Right leaning “organizers” have adopted and used these “Rules”, all or in part. I guess that is a form of endorsement, and frankly, it would be more than a bit dull and obtuse to dismiss this work as morally repugnant and, therefore, irrelevant.

    Indeed, consider this: “Know the enemy and know yourself; in a hundred battles you will never be in peril. When you are ignorant of the enemy, but know yourself, your chances of winning or losing are equal. If ignorant both of your enemy and yourself, you are certain in every battle to be in peril.” ~ Sun Tuz, The Art of War.

    The “enemy” here is the poisonous material crafted and incorporated by ACS Administration and Staff, and by extension those culpable for lying about it, hiding it, and forcing it on teachers and students. It’s not Alinsky. It’s Dr. Haas. It’s Beth Costa. It’s Chris Booz. It’s the ACSB. And it’s those who would support them under the guise of “anti-racist” racism, “hate free” hateful action, and alleged “compliance” with VA law – aka the cast of Orwellian characters pushing a radical and destructive agenda.

  10. Dear Eric, ohhh how you just made that Booz-ie head swell by your mere inclusion of her name with these other stooges. Booz is throwing them all to the wolves, only to come out leading the pack. It’s incredible to watch this equity team totally self implode. Who to trust? Hmmmm. I might need another round of Booze. Is she still willing and able? Why, of course! Money talks…
