"Communism in the Classroom" Conference to Be Held in Washington, D.C. at National Press Club
America’s Survival, Inc. (ASI), a public policy group run by veteran journalist Cliff Kincaid, has announced the holding of an August 20 Washington, D.C. conference, “Communism in the Classroom,” featuring presentations by leading professors concerned about the treatment of communism in America’s colleges and universities.
As America’s students are getting set to return to school in the fall, the ASI conference will provide the first opportunity for members of the public and the press to understand how Barack Obama associate and communist Bill Ayers got a teaching position at the University of Illinois and what he is inflicting in the name of “education” on students in the classroom.
Professor Mary Grabar will discuss her report (PDF), “The Extreme Make-Over of William Ayers: How a Communist Terrorist Became a ‘Distinguished’ Professor of Education,” and Professor Paul Kengor will present, “Anti-Anti-Communism and the Academy.”
Kincaid, who serves as President of ASI and editor of the Accuracy in Media (AIM) Report, will discuss his report, “Saving the World For Socialism,” based on the incriminating information in the FBI file of journalism educator and Professor Curtis MacDougall, whose Interpretative Reporting textbook was the standard in journalism schools and classrooms for decades.
In connection with Ayers, a target of ASI in connection with the unsolved bombing murder of a San Francisco policeman, Kincaid will discuss how his organization was forced to file state Freedom of Information Act requests to get basic information about what Ayers is teaching students at the University of Illinois. Grabar is currently preparing an updated report for ASI on what this limited release of information shows about how Ayers was hired, how he was granted tenure, and what teaching materials he is currently using in the classroom.
The conference will be held at the National Press Club in the First Amendment Lounge, beginning at 12:30 p.m. Admission is free of charge but reservations are requested by calling 443-964-8208 or emailing Kincaid@comcast.net and leaving your name, affiliation, and telephone number. The National Press Club is located at 529 14th St. NW, 13th Floor, Washington, DC 20045.
