6. Wow. That article is chock full of good information. A real eye-opener.
And to think it was written10 years ago.
I just have to quote more of this great article:
"...There are many more examples of the slavish and mercenary nature of Cory Booker's school voucher associations. Much of the rest of the BAEO board is in the business of education, eager to expand the private school market in hope of selling more of their products. All are hopelessly entangled in an interlocking network of Right-funded organizations, with the Bradley and Walton Foundations at the center of the web.
Clearly, Booker is wallowing in the funkiest corner of the political barnyard.
According to People for the American Way, the Bradley Foundation distributed $365 million to various right-wing organizations between 1985 and 1999. In the process, the foundation and its collaborating institutions created the appearance of popular movements where none had previously existed, distorting the American political dialogue beyond measure.
Ironically, the reflexive racism that inhibited The Right from cultivating Black proxies in the past, has been replaced by a kind of born-again enthusiasm to recruit non-whites. Ultra-conservatives have discovered that the depth of African American need, when combined with opportunism in Black political ranks, can bear strange fruit. Cory Booker's candidacy for mayor of Newark is just such fruit of a poisoned tree. ..."
It's sad to think Cory Booker is another trojan horse black politician, but if that's what he is, I'd rather know the full story of who his masters are. Thanks for posting this, eridani.
