Fox News: In an interview on “Fox and Friends,” radio host Michael Knowles shared that Democratic Socialists are urging Socialists to become teachers. The information based on an 11-page pamphlet was crafted jointly by YDSA (Young Democratic Socialists of America) and the Democratic Socialist Labor Commission. The pamphlet outlines the “success” of the recent West Virginia teachers strike, which it attributes to “creative shop floor organizing” from teachers who believed in “socialist politics.”
Excerpt from Fox News:
The Democratic Socialist platform was championed by Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) two years ago on the campaign trail.
Using the same platform, young political newcomer Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez won a shock victory in June over Rep. Joe Crowley (N.Y.) in a Democratic primary.
A new poll also revealed that more Democrats have a positive view about socialism than those who express a positive view about capitalism.
Knowles said Saturday that he believes Democratic Socialists are targeting the teaching industry and as a result, students, because they can’t win against adults. “They can’t win in the battle of ideas,” he said.
