Recently, CPWisconsin hosted a conference call with Jarvis Tyner, Executive Vice Chair for CPUSA, that was open to our members and other interested parties. The call was immensely informative and Jarvis provided listeners with a clear vision of current struggles, both nationally and in the state of Wisconsin.
Our conference calls in Wisconsin are a great way for members and non-members alike to interact with CPUSA figures, and we’ve always encouraged those from varying viewpoints to listen in. Typically, though, we rarely see recordings of our calls end up on right-leaning websites.
On March 4th, EAGNews.org published a short article by Editor Kyle Olson highlighting a small section of Jarvis Tyner speaking on the Wisconsin conference call. Olson doesn’t go into too much detail about the rest of the call, nor does he provide any real commentary about the call, but his short piece was picked up by Townhall last week.
Olson, a follower of ours on Twitter, heads up the news arm of the Education Action Group Foundation which is based out of Michigan. Their “About Us” describes the organization as “a non-partisan non-profit organization with the goal of promoting sensible education reform and exposing those with a vested interest in maintaining the status quo,” which sounds fairly non-partisan to me. In addition to his work for EAG, he’s also the author of “Indoctrination: How ‘Useful Idiots’ Are Using Our Schools to Subvert American Exceptionalism”, which has garnered customer reviews on Amazon that range from “must read” to “nothing but extreme right-wing propaganda”. Nobody said having strong opinions would be easy.
Read Kyle Olson’s quick article over at Townhall. I apologize for directing our readers to a site with an immediate popup trying to sell “Obama’s Four Horseman” – Townhall’s got to pay the bills somehow. Don’t forget to read the comments at the end of the article to get a clear understanding of the audience.
While the link to the audio of the call errors out on Townhall’s site, it can be found over at EAGNews. We’ve also embedded the clip below.
