A few years ago the LAUSD teachers union, UTLA, was found to have holding seminars on why Israel should be destroyed.  So, it is surprising they have endorsed a city council candidate connected to an anti-Jewish, anti-white ANT-BLACK organization?

“Gochez’s organization, the Union del Barrio, is affiliated with the African People’s Socialist Party (APSP).”

“The APSP is founded on a bedrock of race-hatred and intolerance. But not just against the usual targets (Jews, white people, the “bourgeoisie”). No, the APSP spreads the hate around liberally (no pun intended).

Archbishop Desmond Tutu? He should “die:” “I want to make this point very clearly that Bishop Tutu is one of the biggest problems we’ve got. Anybody who’s covering up, anybody who’s running around saying, ‘Oh, please stop killing each other’ is a problem….Anybody on the side of the oppressor must die! Must die! Must die!” (from the APSP book, “The Struggle in South Africa is for Black Power”)

Teachers Union Endorses L.A. Candidate Affiliated with Racist, Extremist Group

Posted by David Stein, 2/4/13

Ron Gochez is a far-left L.A. teacher whose racist, anti-American rants have been well-documented elsewhere. When Ron Gochez announced that he’s running for L.A. City Council (District 9 – encompassing parts of Downtown and South-Central), I didn’t consider it much of a story. He’s running against better-funded, better-connected leftists, and he’ll probably not survive the March 5th primary.

This is the pic that Gochez chose to feature on his campaign site. His slogan must be “Grimace with Gochez!”

This story isn’t about Ron Gochez. He’s not worth a story. It’s about something much bigger, and far more important – the ideological extremism within the United Teachers Los Angeles (UTLA), the California Federation of Teachers/NEA/American Federation of Teachers-affiliated union in L.A. that represents over 35,000 members in the second-largest school district in the United States.

The fact that the UTLA has endorsed Gochez in his City Council bid should make every L.A. parent question whether this union is worthy of support. And yes, that includes the district’s many liberal and Democrat parents, who probably would not be too pleased that the union representing the people who teach their children would publicly endorse a man who is part of a racist coalition that has held conferences and rallies at which President Obama was repeatedly threatened and called “n*gger” by speakers and organizers.

The thing is, I could mention the various anti-Jewish statements Gochez has made over the years, but why bother? They wouldn’t resonate in District 9 or in much of the LAUSD, and they would probably be worn as a badge of honor by the UTLA. So, instead, I’d like to bring up the things that are more likely to cause LAUSD parents to realize just how ethically-bankrupt the teachers union’s endorsement of Gochez is.

Gochez’s organization, the Union del Barrio, is affiliated with the African People’s Socialist Party (APSP). They call themselves “fraternal organizations.” Gochez shills for the APSP on TV (as in this interview with Iranian propaganda outlet Press TV), at their functions, and at their rallies. In February 2011, Gochez promoted an event in San Diego marking “the historic 25th Anniversary of the formal relations between our two organizations.”

When the APSP created the “Black is Back” coalition, Gochez was a part of that as well, speaking at conferences, shilling on TV, and, this month, receiving the coalition’s official endorsement in his city council bid. Here’s a screenshot from Gochez’s campaign website, with the UTLA endorsement side-by-side with the APSP/Black is Back endorsement.

What does the UTLA’s endorsement of Gochez say about the union? Well, let’s examine some of the actions and words of Gochez’s beloved APSP.

The APSP is founded on a bedrock of race-hatred and intolerance. But not just against the usual targets (Jews, white people, the “bourgeoisie”). No, the APSP spreads the hate around liberally (no pun intended).

Archbishop Desmond Tutu? He should “die:” “I want to make this point very clearly that Bishop Tutu is one of the biggest problems we’ve got. Anybody who’s covering up, anybody who’s running around saying, ‘Oh, please stop killing each other’ is a problem….Anybody on the side of the oppressor must die! Must die! Must die!” (from the APSP book, “The Struggle in South Africa is for Black Power”)

Marin Luther King Jr.? A “negro” leading blacks “back onto the plantation:” “If you want to know why the Civil Rights Movement was based on non-violence, it was because no white ruling class element was about to fund a movement of black people that might go off someplace and buy an Uzi or an AK-47 and make a real struggle in this country. It was led by Martin Luther King and a bunch of other Negro liberals to take black people back onto the plantation in a way that was advantageous to white liberals and the black petty bourgeoisie. You might not like it, but that’s the truth. I ain’t got nothing to do with it. I didn’t make the movement non-violent. Martin Luther King made the movement non-violent. If you want to be mad at somebody, be mad at Martin, but don’t throw no bricks at me.” (from the APSP newspaper “The Burning Spear,” February 1991)

On Asians and Latinos: “In Philadelphia every major neighborhood shopping area is controlled by parasitic merchants, mostly Koreans….Korean merchants and the sell-out Latino store owners who greedily suck the resources from the community daily were the rightful targets of the rebellion.” (The Burning Spear, July 1991)

“If you become conscious or even unconscious, you resist white colonial domination, even when it comes in the form of a Korean merchant whose sole purpose for being in your community is one of exploitation. He or she arrives in the morning with an empty bag and leaves at night with one full of your money.” (The Burning Spear, November 1990)

“The Korean or Arab takes all the money, they go to the bankers and they buy from the Jews wholesale….We love the Koreans – in Korea. We don’t want them here oppressing us.” (The Burning Spear, February 1991)

Jesse Jackson? An “old Uncle Tom nigger:” “Well, old Uncle Tom Jesse Jackal….this nigger done made his decision. This nigger was working down in North Carolina, see, and they don’t care nothing about no black folks. Jesse Jackson acts like the only question is South Africa….But the nigger already decided which side he’s on when he went and worked for them honkies down there….This old Uncle Tom Nigger, Jesse Jackson.” (from the APSP book, “The Vanguard Party and the Road to Black Power”)

The Holocaust? The numbers are just made up: “The Jews want to hold this up as the greatest crime against humanity because it’s something that happened to white people I don’t know how many Jews were killed in Germany. They use it to hide the crimes that imperialism has committed against the rest of the world. They say nothing has happened as bad as what happened to those white people, and that’s why it’s got to be six million. If they could make it 40 million, they’d make it 40 million that died there because they need those dead Jews to hold up in the face of any Africans and other oppressed people around the world who say look at what you did to me. They need the dead Jews to say nothing has ever happened as bad as what happened to these white people.” (The Burning Spear, April 2009)

On Christian churches in minority neighborhoods? “Your preacher is an old silver-tongued, slick bootlicker rubbing chicken bones. Religion is organized around ignorance. The more you know, the more you move away from it.” (from a speech by APSP “Chairman” Omali Yeshitela, posted on Youtube)

On President Obama? He’s a “traitor,” a “motherf*cker,” and a “boot-licking nigger” who needs someone to “whup his ass” (from video of 2009 and 2010 APSP/Black is Back rallies in Washington DC):

The APSP chairman even appeared to incite a crowd to take violent action against Obama, at a 2010 rally:  “Even if you’re not strong enough to stop him (Obama), you have to call him a dirty so-and-so, and you have to say it so that people can hear you, so that when the people get ready to move, you’ve already told them it’s alright to move. That’s why we’re out here now. The fuse is the most powerful part of a stick of dynamite. Well, we are the fuse, right here. We are the fuse, and we are on fire! We are on fire! You have to make the hard choices. You have to take people where they didn’t even know they were supposed to go, and you have to have the GUTS to tell them that Barack Hussein Obama is the ENEMY. If you don’t say that, people might be confused. They might think you like him. And if they like you, they won’t want to do anything to him, because they think that you like him. So you have to say, you have our permission…to do what has to be done. Okay, I don’t want to talk about this too much because I’ll go to jail.”

So there you have it, parents in the LAUSD. This is the organization that the man endorsed by your teachers union has been affiliated with, working with, supporting, being a spokesman for, and praising for years. This is the organization whose endorsement Gochez proudly places next to the UTLA’s on his campaign website.

The UTLA – the union in charge of educating your children – considers Gochez a candidate worthy of support. The union representing teachers in the second largest school district in the United States has endorsed this man.

Take a moment, just one moment, LAUSD parents, and ask yourself if this makes you question the competency and judgment of the union. There are twelve people running in District 9. The UTLA chose to endorse only two, the other being State Senator Curren Price. Which makes the Gochez endorsement even more offensive. Price is much more likely to win; the Gochez endorsement was issued as a statement. The UTLA likes him, it agrees with him, it approves of him. It’s a symbolic endorsement; he’s the man the UTLA truly likes, even if Price is the more likely victor.

For years, whenever anyone has tried to curb the power of the teachers union in California, the union would respond by running manipulative TV ads featuring fresh-faced, multiethnic children as a kindly voiceover actor implores people to “think of the children.”

Well, the next time anyone challenges the UTLA, think of Ron Gochez. Think of the fact that the union chose to back him. And think of what that says about the UTLA.
