And union political activism goes far beyond the Walker recall. Peterson represents a growing sector of union leaders who believe they can - and must - shift culture leftward through government schools. And he wants to indoctrinated students into believing unions and big government will save America. He has previously been quoted as saying:
“If teacher unions want to be strong and well supported, it is essential that they not only be teacher unionists, but teachers of unionism. We need to create a generation of students who support teachers and the movement for workers rights, oppressed peoples’ rights. That’s our responsibility.”
In an EAGnews exclusive video late last year, unrepentant domestic terrorist and Marxist Bill Ayers beamed when he told a Milwaukee crowd that Peterson had solicited his help in running for the union presidency. Ayers hosted a fundraiser at his Hyde Park home in Chicago for Peterson.

Progressives believe it is their right to use government schools to push their personal political agenda. It doesn't bother them one iota to use taxpayer-funded schools to recall a governor. Will the union's efforts to indoctrinate our kids against free markets and reformist public officials like Scott Walker prevail? We'll know very soon.
