Oldest Moonbat Walking... Piven Speaks at Christian College


Frances Fox Piven had never been to a Christian college before she gave Tuesday’s lecture at Messiah College.


Penn Live...And judging from the eye-rolling and snickering from many middle-aged attendees and some students, Piven’s audience didn’t agree that they shared common ground.
 
Piven declared the Tea Party to be a (partially) racist movement, and said that they can't stand to have a black president. The audience responded with disgust.
One attendee said, "If Obama adhered to the Constitution we would not care what color he was."

Piven asked if "you people" are all Tea Partiers. Most responded with applause.
She then drew back in her rhetoric somewhat.

“The tea party is an authentic movement. It’s certainly not my movement. I hope it will not be the only important movement in American society,” Piven said.

When Piven’s visit drew negative reaction on social media sites, Messiah countered that students would benefit from another view and would get a chance to exercise civil disagreement.

Glenn Beck has taken to calling called her “an enemy of the Constitution.” He blasted Piven for calling on unemployed workers to stage protests on the scale of riots that shook Greece last year.

Messiah student Phil Strunk asked Piven to explain herself.

“It kind of sounded like a declaration of violence to me,” Strunk said.

“I believe in nonviolence. I don’t think that breaking a glass window is the worst crime in the world. But I’m against it ... because people will say, ‘Violence, violence, violence,’ and ignore the violence on the street, of [people] losing their homes, being hungry,” Piven said.

Morgan Lee, another Messiah student, asked Piven if she believed that briefly stated political theories argued online have permanently replaced “full, fleshed-out arguments.”

Piven said they are a significant challenge to democracy....Read More... See Video Here

This "outreach" to a Secular Humanist by a local Christian school is beyond the pale as far as I am concerned.

This infiltration of Marxist philosophy runs VERY deep in our society.

Scott, thanks for adding Defeat Obama in 2012 to your blogroll. I have created a widget, such as it is, and will be adding it to all my sites--which are numerous. I will also be adding links on it to great conservative sites such as your. All that I ask is that you add it to your site. It will be updated each month as members are listed. I will be restricting it to 50 blogs as it will be very time consuming for me. When it gets up and going good it will provide an amazing number of back links and great exposer for those who list there. I've already added your blog to the list as well as those who originally linked back to me. If you wish to add the widget to your site email me at russellshih(at)aol.com and I will email you back the code. Hope I don't have any bugs in it. I've found the best way to install it is to paste the email directly in and then carefully delete unnecessary text. Please delete this comment when finished as it contains my personal email address--too many spanners already have it. Whether you get the widget or not you will remain on the blogroll at Defeat Obama in 2012. Thanks Ron
