My previous post linked to museum shops that offer H. W. Crocker's excellent book, Robert E. Lee on Leadership. If that troubles you, perhaps you'll be comforted in knowing that the National Education Association recommends Saul Alinsky. So with whom do you feel more comfortable, hmmm?
Let's wait and see if we witness any hand-wringing or howls over the NEA's endorsement of a radical leftist. Here's a choice Alinsky quote taken from the NEA's endorsement of Alinsky's book:
"Conservative interests know that while Liberals are most adept at breaking their own necks with their tongues, Radicals are most adept at breaking the necks of Conservatives."
And . . .
"He will fight conservatives whether they are business or labor leaders." (Emphasis mine.)
Since the NEA endorses such views, (right beside a link to "Lesson Plans" by the way!) would it not be reasonable to assume that those of us who approach education from a more traditional viewpoint are accurate in their criticisms regarding much of academia's leftist ideology? Of course it would, which is why they protest so loudly - and unconvincingly.
