Schools Seen as the Place for GOP Recruits

Rossmoor-Los Alamitos Republican Women Federated meeting will feature a speaker who advocates getting to campuses to aid in spreading alternative views.

The Rossmoor-Los Alamitos Republican Women Federated wants the GOP to go back to school.

In an effort to get a presence on high school and college campuses, the group will hold a meeting on the importance of reaching students in order to counter what it sees as "the overwhelming liberal bias" among teachers.

The guest speaker at the meeting, which is Jan. 19 at 10:30 a.m. at the Farmers and Merchants Bank on Seal Beach Boulevard in Seal Beach, will be Jason Aula, who says a Republican presence could introduce students to alternatives often taught by their Democratic/union teachers.

"I will touch on how we can build the party on the local level," said Aula, political director for the Long Beach Young Republicans. "I believe recruiting young members to your club starts with having a presence on college campuses in the region."

Margene Walz, club president, said "the party needs to become an equal influence on high school and college campuses. It won’t be easy, since so many teachers are Democrats. Yet, once students learn about the Republican Party’s position on issues, I am confident they will want to be part of the conservative solution to our nation’s challenges.”

The club's meetings are open "to women and men who want to work with like-minded individuals to improve the political landscape." The Jan. 19 meeting will include time for networking and socializing.

The GOP has entire right-wing radio propaganda component. They have Faux News for propaganda on the TV. And now they want to be able to put propaganda in the school system. How about we teach the kids FACTS without any spin and let them decide what to do with their lives? At home their parents can indoctrinate them into the faith and political leanings that they may have, but let's leave the politics OUT of the schools and focus on teaching kids facts and how to use their brains. Additionally, if the GOP wants to offset what they say are "liberal" teachers, then maybe those that have conservative leanings should become educators. I know that evil liberal math teachers have always promoted the imaginary numbers, we need more real number promotion in algebra! Or maybe they don't like discussions of how Hoover and the GOP fed all the countries wealth to the richest Americans and left the rest struggling through the Depression and want to tell us how the Depression was a left-wing plot that had nothing to do with the enrichment of the "job creators" at the expense of the working class. So what if the facts don't fit the narrative, as long as we don't allow our kids to actually learn the facts they will be able to join with other great conservative thinkers who believe that trickle down works, there is no climate change due to humans, and that the female body can stop legitimate rape.

OMG, I was on a cruise over the holidays and was stuck with MSNBC and Fox. There were all these talking head morons on MSNBC giving their outlook over and over. One guy kept saying how if we stop immigration we end who we are. The others were giving their status quo insanity. Help.

Yeah Tiny, That Joe guy every morning is a raging socialist. Bet if he was elected to Congress he would just raise taxes and give all all the rich's money to those illegal immigrants. [I adore it when people claim that MSNBC is "just like Faux" Sort of like saying having a 100 degree fever is just like having full blown aids. False equivalencies live and breath from the right]

Hmmm, the right wants them to pray to G-d and the left wants classes in comparative mythology. Who wants to keep them low information voters? The right wants them to think that the second amendment is about firearm ownership, the left wants then to read the debates on what happened in Congress when the Bill of Rights was being debated so they can learn about the fear of a standing army and how a well regulated militia was designed to ensure that there would be no standing army... by not allowing the federal to disarm the members of the State well regulated militias. The right wants to deny science (legitimate rape won't get you pregnant because your body will stop it) the left embraces it. Now, which side want s low information voters again?

I would really like to know how they plan on accomplishing these goals. Encouraging conservative republicans to become teachers as met00 suggested? Sponsor clubs? The list of clubs at Los Alamitos High School includes a "Young Republicans Club", but it is listed as "out of order", I will assume that means it is inactive. I agree with met00 on this issue. Let the schools be places to learn. I just might have to attend this meeting to see what the "Rossmoor-Los Alamitos Republican Women Federated" is planning.
