TEA Party video of UNIDOS student action says to “shoot them in the head”

cropped-TSON.jpg

At all the protests led by Latinos so far this year, there has been no violence. Civil disobedience yes, violence and rioting no. Yet that doesn’t stop Tom Horne and Jon Justice and even Michael Hicks and John Pedicone from calling this student action worse than it is, from “thuggish mobs” to comparisons with Tucson tragedies, spreading conspiracy theories about funding from out-of-state groups, and even that the teachers planned this whole thing. So much for a superintendent like John Pedicone defending his students and teachers, rather than bashing them himself. In the video above, which closes with a Don’t […]

Get caught up on the latest in Ethnic Studies with one VIDEO of highlights!

The above video does not show Tuesday’s actions but focuses instead on the man in charge of TUSD, the author of the anti-MAS resolution, and what he was saying before and after Tuesday’s actions. I have been in math departments a long time, including a year at Berkeley which has 3 Fields medalists. It makes sense to me that Mark Stegeman is an economist, where math is needed, because he has a lot of similarities with some of the more eccentric mathematicians, which is the stereotype they have in movies, able to do huge calculations on the spot but unable […]

UPDATE: TUSD meeting moved to Tuesday, extreme restrictions and metal detectors will be used so that Pedicone-Stegeman can attack Mexican-American Studies

cropped-TSON.jpg

The next TUSD meeting, when they will vote to demote Mexican-American History, is Tuesday, May 3rd. There will be a limit on the amount of people in the building. Police and security will search all that enter and hand-held metal detectors will be used for people who refuse to be searched. Speakers will be outside of 1010 to allow everyone to hear. How’s that for democracy… a physical wall, a wall of police, and a little copper wire so you can hear the elected officials determine the future of a community-started program before the Vice-President of SALC and TUSD board […]

VIDEO: John Pedicone excuses excessive police force against students – looking into prosecutions against students

cropped-TSON.jpg

Did you know that TUSD is under a federal court order to expand Mexican-American Studies, and that it is the John Pedicone and Mark Stegeman that are about to violate the law? They do not listen to the students, so the students had to escalate their demonstrations, and they were heard around the world. Now John Pedicone is working with Tucson Police to decide who should be prosecuted. TUSD and law enforcement are reviewing videos of Tuesday night’s protest at the school-board meeting to determine if prosecution is warranted. “This type of behavior will not be tolerated,” Pedicone said. “The […]

VIDEO: Jon Justice shows his ignorance this week while bashing Mexican-American Studies

cropped-TSON.jpg

Ever wonder why Jon Justice never denounces neo-Nazi rallies? Or Minutemen, which includes top neo-Nazi members such as JT Ready working with Russell Pearce’s son to hunt Mexicans out in the desert? He sure is quick to blast some students for standing up for their education… but what about people who just moved here from out of state, don’t know anything about TUSD, have a history of extortion, what if these “adults” were to shut down a school board meeting that has already started? Ironically, Jon Justice would have them on his show condemning the students! Jon Justice also says […]

VIDEO: Remember when TU4SD shut down the TUSD board meeting?

cropped-TSON.jpg

December 14, 2011: John Pedicone’s very first meeting. Shut down by the right-wingers. One of the contributors to the Jon Justice show says “Sieg heil” to Judy Burns and calls her “little girl.” Loretta Hunnicutt is the voice you here crying out, and she’s the blogger/webmaster for TU4SD that keeps bashing on Mexican-American Studies. Jon Justice also loves to have her and Rich Kronberg, also of TU4SD even though he lives in Oro Valley, on his show to bash MAS. Other board members of TU4SD include Gabby Mercer who is running against Raul Grijalva for Congress next year. Jon Justice […]
