Local parents who want to see the public schools open are concerned that their opponents are supported by two organizations with communist connections.
The well-organized effort had an entire week of activities scheduled, to conclude with a march in Tallahassee tomorrow, Sat. Aug. 8.
A flyer outlining the schedule was published on the Facebook page of the Duval Pandemic Solutions Team.
At the bottom of the flyer were logos of Party for Socialism and Liberation, and the World Workers Party.
Per Wikipedia, the Workers World Party (WWP) is a revolutionary Marxist–Leninist political party in the United States founded in 1959 by a group led by Sam Marcy of the Socialist Workers Party (SWP). Marcy and his followers split from the SWP in 1958 over a series of long-standing differences, among them their support for Henry A. Wallace’s Progressive Party in 1948, the positive view they held of the Chinese Revolution led by Mao Zedong and their defense of the 1956 Soviet intervention in Hungary, all of which the SWP opposed.
The Party for Socialism and Liberation (PSL) is described as a communist party established in 2004 after a split in the Workers World Party (WWP). The PSL is running Gloria La Riva and Sunil Freeman in the 2020 United States presidential election.
Teacher union bosses also are supporting the effort to keep schools closed. As everyone knows, the unions are huge supporters and contributors to liberal Democrat causes. The Democrat Party presidential nominee has been endorsed by the Communist Party USA.
“This is beyond concerning,” said April Carney, a member of a group that supports parents having a choice of children attending school in person or online.
“I believe the people of Duval County need to know that their children are being taught by people that support these groups.”
