Teachers Behind Violent Marxist Antifa Groups Are Growing in Power

On Sunday, we published an article about the Antifa chapters professors are forming and networking on college campuses throughout the nation. It’s not only college professors, but also the K-12 teachers who are behind the violent communist group BAMN in Berkeley and other groups. They are bringing their radical indoctrination into the classroom and they are running their radical communists and anarchists for positions in the National Education Association.

BAMN is one group active within both the National Education Association — the nation’s largest teacher’s union — as well as with local and regional teacher’s unions in Michigan and California, The Daily Caller reported.

Last year, 17 different BAMN members ran for elected positions on the Detroit Federation of Teachers, according to a newsletter sent out by the DFT. BAMN also ran five candidates for different national leadership positions with the NEA in 2017.

The FBI and DHS told Barack Obama in April, 2016 that these groups are committing “domestic terrorist violence.” They are growing and no one is stopping them so far.

BAMN or By Any Means Necessary, an Antifa franchise, was behind the Berkeley, Sacramento and other riots. Dozens of public school teachers are among its members, including its most prominent leaders.

BAMN’s most prominent organizer is publicity hound Yvette Felarca, a Berkeley middle school teacher and pro-violence militant. Felarca currently faces charges of inciting a riot for her role in the Sacramento violence.

This is the group that wouldn’t let Milo Yiannopoulos, Ann Coulter, and a number of professors speak because they disagreed with their opinion.

Felarca proudly defended her group’s acts of violence.

Last weekend, Felarca helped organize BAMN’s mass demonstrations that “shut down” an anti-Marxism rally in Berkeley.

BAMN organizer and high school teacher Nicole Conaway organized a “sickout” at her school in 2015, leading other teachers in calling in sick to protest the policies of Republican Gov. Rick Snyder. The sickout forced six Detroit-area schools to cancel classes, affecting nearly 4,000 students. A month later, she led students in a walkout and was one of several BAMNs arrested. Other BAMN members have led similar protests at the schools where they teach.

Berkeley’s public school district charged in court filings obtained by local news organization Berkeleyside that Felarca abused her position as a teacher.

Despite warnings from the school district, Felarca repeatedly continues to recruit students or tries to during work hours. The school says she tries to indoctrinate the students and weaponize them to derail discipline.

She is still teaching.

 

Oakland Technical High School teacher and BAMN member Tania Kappner worked with Felarca this past January to organize students and teachers in a walkout in protesting Trump. Kappner was identified in the media as a BAMN member as early as 2011.

BAMN is active within both the National Education Association — the nation’s largest teacher’s union — as well as with local and regional teacher’s unions in Michigan and California.

Last year, 17 different BAMN members ran for elected positions on the Detroit Federation of Teachers, according to a newsletter sent out by the DFT. BAMN also ran five candidates for different national leadership positions with the NEA in 2017.

When the Berkeley school district suspended Felarca for her violent activism in 2016 (for which she was charged with inciting a riot), the local teacher’s union sued the school on Felarca’s behalf.

In January 2015, BAMN organizer Steve Conn was elected president of the Detroit Federation of Teachers. The DFT’s executive board charged Conn with misconduct later that year and removed him from office.

Conn and his wife, former teacher Heather Miller, were fired back in 2007 after leading a student protest that resulted in students being pepper sprayed. The couple sued and got their jobs back, in addition to a $300,000 settlement. Conn continues teaching today at Western High School.

BAMN was founded by the Revolutionary Workers League, an openly Marxist organization, in 1995.

TheDC reported in April, BAMN’s parent organization — worked with NAMBLA (Man-Boy Love Association) in the years just before the communist group founded BAMN.

One of BAMN’s founding members is on record identifying as a NAMBLA member, calling the pro-pedophilia group the victim of a “witch-hunt.” (Read TheDC’s full story on the ties between NAMBLA and BAMN here.)
