WHO, WHY and HOW…..

Why is this video posted as a “Famous People” video on Heather Booth’s site?

Trevor Loudon (http://www.newzeal.blog.com) first wrote about Schakowsky in February 2008. Recently, he mentioned Schakowskys husband, Robert Creamer, who is a board member, along with former SDSers, husband and wife, Paul Booth and Heather Booth (Chairman), of the Chicago Annenberg Challenge-funded Midwest Academy. But theres a whole lot more to the Schakowsky-Creamer-Obama relationship.

From Discover The Networks:

HEATHER BOOTH:

  • Radical organizer/activist since the early 1960s
  • Co-founder and President of the Midwest Academy, which teaches tactics of direct action, confrontation, and intimidation
  • Helped develop methods adopted by AFL-CIO’s “Union Summer”
  • Co-founder of left Democrat group Coalition for Democratic Values
  • Was Training Director for the Democratic National Committee
  • Executive Director of the NAACP’s National Voter Fund
  • Board member of the Center for Community Change
  • Vice President of USAction

Heather Booth’s husband, Paul Booth, was a founder and national secretary of Students for a Democratic Society. He is currently an assistant to Gerald McEntee, President of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME).

In 1979 Heather Booth helped organize five state activist groups in Oregon, Massachusetts, Illinois, Connecticut, and Ohio into a national federation called Citizen Action, a consumer advocacy organization focused on such issues as environmentalism and socialized medicine. She served as Citizen Action’s co-director until 1988. By 1999 the group had become moribund, and Booth helped resurrect it that year under the name USAction.

In 1990 Booth became Director of the Coalition for Democratic Values, a partisan organization of leading left Democrats, formed as a counterweight to the centrist Democratic Leadership Council.

In 1992 Booth directed the Field Operation for Illinois Democrat Carol Moseley Braun’s successful run for the U.S. Senate.

Booth believes that the conservative movement in America is on the decline, and that the left needs to unite and seize the moment:

“The right wing control (hegemony) is fracturing and it is not clear that it can be put back together…. A majority of people are turning against the right…. It is now, when there is this opening, that the extraordinary work which has been tak[ing] shape over the last 30 years really will pay off.”

Booth’s vision of uniting various leftist factions has also been the subject of her two books: Toward a Radical Movement (1968), and Citizen Action and the New American Populism (1986).

In December 2005 the Midwest Academy announced its establishment of the “Heather Award,” in honor of Booth’s four decades of work as an activist leader. The award is given annually to a woman who has spent at least 15 years in the field of organizing and who, “like Heather, demonstrate[s] a generous spirit that brings others along.” Past recipients have included: Chicana activist Alicia Ybarra, Training Director of SEIU International; Sarita Gupta, past President of the United States Student Association; and Mary Beth Maxwell, former Deputy Field Director for NARAL Pro-Choice America.

In June 2009 Booth praised ACORN as an organization of people dedicated to “building a better society and a better world.”

Over the years, Booth has contributed money to the campaigns of numerous political candidates — all Democrats. Notable recipients of her donations include Barack Obama, Al Franken,Barbara Boxer,Tom HarkinJesse JacksonKweisi MfumeHillary ClintonJohn Kerry,  Tammy Baldwin, Al Gore, Ralph Neas, Jan Schakowsky, Russell Feingold, and Lane Evans.
Booth also has made contributions to the Progressive Politics Network, Progressive Majority, EMILY’S List, Moveon.org, and 21st Century Democrats.

The Midwest Academy recruits people by teaching them how to use radical techniques to win on a local community issue of interest to them. It also indoctrinates its students in “us-versus-them” leftist ideology, thereby turning out an ever-growing cadre of radicalized activists who can be called on to “take on larger issues,” including anti-war protests, labor rallies and political confrontations.

One prominent Midwest Academy graduate is Service Employees International Union (SEIU) President Andrew Stern, one of the most radical leaders in the labor movement, who supported the creation of “Union Summer.”

The Midwest Academy’s 425-page manual Organizing for Social Change is widely used by radicals as a textbook on how to conduct direct action organizing. AFL-CIO President John Sweeney and the Rev. Jesse Jackson have encouraged their supporters to read it.

Obama-file 14 Socialist Led Mega-Union Backs Barack Obama

 http://newzeal.blogspot.com/2008/02/obama-file-14-socialist-led-mega-union.html

Socialists, particularly the Marxists from Democratic Socialists of America (DSA)and the Communist Party USA now dominate the US union movement.

Their intention is to use union money, muscle and manpower to move the US government further down the socialist road.

Barack Obama has close ties to DSA (particularly the Chicago branch) and has long been supported by the Democratic Socialists and their Communist Party allies.

According to the Freedom Road Socialist Organisation, the Midwest Academy;

Probably the most well-known organizing method is Alinskyism, named after Saul Alinsky, a Chicago-born community organizer who helped set up the Back of the Yards Neighborhood Council and later the Industrial Areas Foundation in the 1930s. (Today in New York Alinskyism can be found in groups that do neighborhood-based organizing like ACORN, Mothers on the Move, TICO as well as NYPIRG). The Mid-West Academy is a training center set up by members of DSA [Democratic Socialists of America] that draws heavily from Alinskyism.

Barack Obama was a disciple of Alinsky while working a “community organisor” in Chicago in the early “80s. later he did considerable legal work for the radical community group ACORN, which is closely linked to the Midwest Academy.

ACORN and Chicago DSA formed the backbone of the leftist New Party which Obama worked closely with during his successful 1996 Illinois State Senate bid.

Steve Max, associate director the Midwest Academy is a DSA Vice-Chair, while academy founder Heather Booth and current executive director Jackie Kendall both have close ties to Chicago DSA.

Jackie Kendall also knew Barack Obama when he first worked in Chicago.

Another SEIU vive president, Eliseo Medina is both an honorary chair of DSA and a supporter of the Communist Party newspaper, Peoples Weekly World. Medina was involved with Chicago DSA in 1975, working on the farmworkers union “grape boycott“. While there he recruited a young Jan Schakowsky to the union cause.

Schakowsky also has close ties to Chicago DSA and is one of Barack Obama’s key supporters in the US Congress.

Such is the incestuous world of US labour/left politics.

Davidson and Tom Hayden  (Jane Fonda’s ex-husband) take credit for having launched in 1969 the “Venceremos Brigades,” which covertly transported hundreds of young Americans to Cuba to help harvest sugar cane and interact with Havana’s communist revolutionary leadership. (The Brigades were organized by Fidel Castro‘s Cuban intelligence agency, which trained “brigadistas” in guerrilla warfare techniques, including the use of arms and explosives.)

In 1988 Davidson founded Networking for Democracy (NFD), an initiative that teaches computer skills and radical politics to Chicago-area teenagers.

  2. Re: Venceremos Brigade. have to quibble with you there. Carl Oglesby of sds made the initial contacts with diplomats at the Cuban Mission in NYC, at which Oglesby made his pitch to form the VB. See his recently published autobiography, blurbed by John Kerry on the back of the hb. edition. Here is part of a review of book from the early 70’s, composed of VB members letters and diaries, http://www.jstor.org/pss/1959335 Go to a university library to find this article from the Radical history Review, “Queer Harvests: Homosexuality, the U.S. New Left, and the Venceremos Brigades to Cuba
    Radical History Review – Issue 89, Spring 2004, pp. 57-91. Georgie Anne Geyer, wrote an article for The Progressive in 1971, IIRC on the VB. This book on African-American Leftists and the Cuban Revolution has much on the VB, http://msupress.msu.edu/bookTemplate.php?bookID=2579 , note the blurb from the late Eldridge Cleaver. On sds, I would recommend, getting away from the WWW and reading one of the standard texts on sds like the early volume by Kirkpatrick Sale, published in ’73, the vol. from the 80’s on the early period of sds by James Miller, “democracy Is In the Streets, ” or the 90’s vol. by another sds leader, Todd Gitlin, “The Sixties.” http://www.sdsrebels.com/bibliography.htm

    It is amazing when you write about anything relating to Marxism, you get the blog watchers and Socialist themselves out of the woodwork.

    Re: Michael Pugliese

    If Barack Obama’s campaign for the US presidency had an unofficial slogan, it should be “All the way with DSA”.

    The Marxists of Chicago Democratic Socialists of America helped launch Obama’s political career and have supported him ever since.

    DSA linked unions have endorsed Obama’s campaign for the Democratic nomination and DSA linked figures such as Congresswomen Jan Schakowsky and Barbara Lee have come out strongly for the Senator.

    While the iron disciplined Communist Party USA has committed itself totally to the Obama cause, the looser DSA is less obvious about its support.

    Traditionally DSA allows its members more freedom to back candidates of their choice, but several prominent DSA members have stood up for Obama in recent times.

    John Sweeney, president of the AFL-CIO is the USA’s most powerful labour leader. he is also a long time DSA member.

    Gerald McEntee, the nation’s top public sector unionist is a strong Sweeney ally. He is also allegedly a DSA member.

    According to San Francisco DSA member Michael Pugliese;

    BTW, for what it’s worth McEntee, is one of the DSA notables in the labor bureaucrat column. As is John Sweeney.

    Quentin Young is a well known Chicago DSA member and early Obama backer, who seems to have come back to the cause, after a period of disillusionment with his friend and neighbour.

    Jan Schakowsky has close ties to DSA. Dick Durbin is a strong Obama backer and is regarded as one of the most far left members of the US Senate.

    Democratic Left:
    Description
    This list is dedicated to the exchange of information and ideas within an on-line community defined by a broad democratic left politics. Our goal is to discuss and debate how we might make democratic left principles and programmatic initiatives into a real force in mainstream politics and a real presence in mass organizations such as those of the labor movement, the feminist movement, the civil rights and anti-racist movement, environmental movement, gay and lesbian movements, and global justice/human rights movements. We welcome participation from individuals who identify themselves as part of the democratic left — as a left-liberal, a social democrat, a radical democrat, or a democratic socialist.

    Response by Romanticpoet:

    The SDS has not died. It has reformed itself.
    http://www.studentsforademocraticsociety.org/

    East Lansing, MI – December 6, 2007. Former members of MSU SDS, present day members of MDS and organizers from Ignite, the new MSU SDS chapter all came together for a counter-recruitment protest and later, a moving MSU SDS reunion. Friday, November 30, 2007 was a bitter cold day in East Lansing. A spirited demo outside a Marine Corps recruiting center, on busy Grand River Avenue, opposite the MSU campus, was abbreviated due to the frigid temperatures. But later in the day, an SDS reunion held in MSU’s South Kedzie Hall, warmed hearts and fired up the activists – young and old. Bob Meola, an MSU SDS alumnus, emceed the affair which featured speeches by Cole Smith of Ignite, Alan Haber, Bernardine Dohrn, Bill Ayers and the man of the hour – Bert Garskof who had been the faculty advisor to the original MSU SDS chapter. Garskof, fired by MSU for his devotion to his students and the Movement, was described by Ayers as “a mentor, an inspiration”.

    Noting that “the Sixties have been commodified…nostalgia for the Sixties is like a wet blanket for young people,” Bill Ayers also remarked that coming together to celebrate the spirit of resistance is important in a time when we are seeing: “empire resurrected and unapologetic; white supremacy, changing its form but essentially intact; growing surveillance in every sphere of our lives; attacks on women and girls”, and; “targeting of gay and lesbian people” as a form of scapegoating. According to Ayers, in the Sixties “we had a view that we could change things”…today, he argued, activists need to “imagine another world and put it in moral terms”. “We have to speak in a language that is large and encompassing,” he said. Discussing how to challenge an ‘almost unthinkable authoritarianism’, Ayers noted that “it’s the idea that we can tolerate these intolerable things…it’s what they count on” [to maintain control]. The solution lies in part with raising moral questions he added. “I think this is a moment of unprecedented opportunity for Movement building”, Ayers said, but he added that we need to make connections, “to talk to one another” across social justice movements. This notion, the need to talk with people with whom we might disagree – to initiate a dialogue – was a recurrent theme in the remarks of several of the longtime members of Sigma Delta Sigma present at the Reunion.

    I don’t think we can wait, I think we need to develop a courageous conversation across organizations, across movements. Looking for that common ground, that common strand that brings us together.”

    – Bill Ayers, East Lansing, 30 Nov 2007

    This underlying contradiction, the reform versus revolutionary change issue, was something that could not be easily resolved, Garskok noted. It led, in his view, to the end of SDS in 1969. But Garskof did not see this as other than it should be. He spoke about a “natural end of SDS”, after it had gone about as far as it could go. But he noted that “the reemergence of SDS on today’s campuses…that’s a good thing!” Filled with hope – and armed with an impressive knowledge of history – Garskof also rejected the notion that the Movement did not help end the US war on Viet Nam: “We controlled the streets” which helped end the war, he argued. Looking to the future Garskof argued that resistance will come again and will again surprise the pundits: “the Sixties were a surprise”…renewed activism will likewise take society by surprise, he argued. Garskof spoke of his own transformation during the Sixties: “I was once a liberal professor, ugh…I went to a party…met Bill Ayers and Diana Oughton and my life was changed forever.” Ever self effacing, Garskof thanked Bill and Bernardine for all their support and all they taught him.
