In 1968, Mike Klonsky was the Chairman of the communist Students for a Democratic Society (SDS). Klonsky was also one of the instigators of the the riots during the 1968 Democrat convention. He then became a close associate of domestic terrorist William Ayers and Bernadine Dorn as well as Barack Obama. Unsurprisingly, he is also an associate of Chicago Teachers Union (CTU) President Karen Lewis.
Andrew McCarthy talked about Klonsky back in 2008, saying:
Here’s what you need to know. Klonsky is an unabashed communist whose current mission is to spread Marxist ideology in the American classroom. Obama funded him to the tune of nearly $2 million. Obama, moreover, gave Klonsky a broad platform to broadcast his ideas: a “social justice” blog on the official Obama campaign website.
Klonsky is a big admirer of CTU President Lewis. He calls her a “fist-in-the-air, crowd-rousing, dynamic union leader.”
It’s all about more money for these “teachers.” They don’t care much about the quality of our children’s education. It is only about power.
Here it is apropos to relate an oft repeated quote attributed to one-time teachers union chief Albert Shanker. “When school children start paying union dues, that’s when I’ll start representing the interests of school children,” he said.
