The Common Core Opposition, Take 4: In Which MCAS Finally Exposes Its Alliance With Right Wing Propagandists

We’re not big on linking to Breitbart News, but we wanted to share MCAS’s moment in the sun. Yep, that’s right, they’ve hit the big time in the Right Wing racist, homophobic news space. As we’ve mentioned several times previously, the anti-common core, anti-school district campaign they’ve been waging to advance their national political agenda is rooted in far-right extremism that has no place here in Montclair.

It’s a truth they’ve repeatedly rejected, claiming that their own extremist activism has nothing to do with racist, homophobic extremist right-wingers like Rand Paul and Steve King who they’ve joined in the anti-common core fight. But it’s a bit hard for them to deny now, with their own video making the rounds in the propaganda machines of the far right.

On Monday, the often-racist, often-homophobic, always-extremely-right-wing Breitbart News featured a new video produced by MCAS featuring a bunch of their folks complaining ambiguously, conspiratorially, and inaccurately about the PARCC exams (reports we’ve heard from kids around town who have actually started to take them indicate that survival rates are high, tests are unobtrusive, and the crazy rhetoric is massively overblown). Congratulations to Michelle Fine, Regina Tuma, Maia Davis, and the rest of those find progressive. Their work finds itself nestled among other headlines like:

MUSLIM LESBIAN KILLED DAUGHTER TO EXORCISE HER OF EVIL SPIRITS AT BEHEST OF LOVER

ABC FAMILY’S ‘THE FOSTERS’ AIRS YOUNGEST-EVER GAY KISS BETWEEN TWO 13-YEAR-OLD BOYS

THE LEFT’S FEVERED DREAMS OF A GODLESS AMERICA

Congrats to MCAS on making the big time with your buddies at Breitbart, and thanks for making clear what we’ve been saying all along: your extremist political crusade should have no place in a progressive community like Montclair.
