SEIU, Anarchist, Occupy Training Manuals, including children’s guide to anarchy

Via the Blaze-

The Blaze discusses an array of SEIU (Service Employees International Union) , Occupy and Anarchist training manuals which detail how to take actions and push to get what you want.

Amongst the worst,  the SEIU manual, which :

details how legal, political, media and regulatory pressure can all be exploited to manipulate employers and help the union realize its goals. It encourages, in a not-so-subtle way, the blackmailing of employers with whom it disagrees by first damaging their reputations, and encourages placing “outside pressure” to jeopardize “relationships between the employer and lenders, investors, stockholders, customers, clients, patients, tenants, politicians, or others on whom the employer depends for funds.”

One of the most telling passages of the SEIU manual reads:

It may be a violation of blackmail and extortion laws to threaten management officials with release of ‘dirt’ about them if they don’t settle a contract. But there is no law against union members who are angry at their employer deciding to uncover and publicize factual information about individual managers.

Perhaps the most morally offensive of them all, an anarchist’s guide book for children.  “A Rule is to Break” A Child’s Guide to Anarchy“ guides children on being their ”best self” by breaking the rules.

And who should give you a definitive review of the value of this book but Bill Ayers!

“… A delight to read! A children’s book on anarchy seems somehow just right: an instinctive, intuitive sense of fairness, community, and interdependence sits naturally enough with a desire for participatory democracy, feminism, queer-rights, environmental balance, self-determination, and peace and global justice.” – Bill Ayers / author (’To Teach: The Journey in Comics‘ and ’Fugitive Days’), teacher, Barack Obama’s alleged terrorist pal, and grandpa.
