Illinois Professor: I Teach Social Justice All Day, Everyday

I wrote a book in 2019 that provided an in-depth analysis of how the nation’s public university system had been radicalized and how professors were using their classrooms to raise up a new generation of Marxists and social justice warriors.

Since the publication of “Culture Jihad: How to Stop the Left From Killing a Nation,” we have seen the rise of the “Cancel Culture Movement” and the birth of radical domestic armies like Black Lives Matter and Antifa. Click here to read the book.

And now many radicalized professors are openly boasting of how they teach social justice values every day in their classrooms.

Roosevelt University Professors Ralph Martire and Gina Harris, who also serve on the Oak Park and River Forest High School school board, were caught on an open microphone during a Zoom call discussing how they used social justice to “organize society,” West Cook News first reported.

“I mean, it’s all social justice. All day, every day I get to talk about all the things I love,” Harris told Martire during the recorded meeting.

“I mean, really, I’m living the life over here,” she added.

Martire said he “always flip[s] out at kids” who take his “master’s class on fiscal policy and public budgets.”

“The first three or four classes are devoted to philosophy of social justice and how you organize society,” he explained to Harris. “We don’t talk about one, you know, budgetary item. They’re like, ‘Oh, man. Professor Martire, this is a really weird way to teach a budget.'”

And there are hundreds of thousands of teachers in public and private schools who share the same philosophy. That’s why I would encourage you to homeschool your children.

Following is a transcript of the conversation provided by West Cook News:

Ralph Martire [00:00:03] Gina, you teaching at Roosevelt this semester?

Gina Harris [00:00:08] Yes, Ralph, I am great.

Ralph Martire [00:00:10] What are you teaching?

Gina Harris [00:00:11] Well, I’m teaching middle school theory and practice, basically.

Ralph Martire [00:00:15] Excellent.

Gina Harris [00:00:16] Yeah, it’s quite wonderful.

Ralph Martire [00:00:18] I love the university. I just do

Gina Harris [00:00:21] I have to say I do, too.

Ralph Martire [00:00:24] Yeah. It’s a great place. I’m so glad you’re there to you fit in so well with their, you know, the university’s philosophy and mission. Right.

Gina Harris [00:00:33] I mean, it’s all social justice. All day, every day I get to talk about all the things I love all the

Ralph Martire [00:00:37] time, all day, every day, all day

Gina Harris [00:00:40] of the day, all night of my night classes when I’m here. I mean, really, I’m living the life over here.

Ralph Martire [00:00:48] Yeah. I always flip out the kids that take my master’s class on fiscal policy and public budgets within the first three or four classes are devoted to philosophy of social justice and how you organize society. We don’t talk about one, you know, budgetary item. They’re like, Oh, man. Professor Martire, this is a really weird way to teach a budget.

Gina Harris [00:01:14] Now it’s part of everything, right, what a foundation,

Ralph Martire [00:01:18] if you don’t understand your values, you can’t allocate resources among public priorities that are scarce, but all needed. Right? Someone just so you guys know, you’re out there, you’re on the mic in the auditorium, OK?

Gina Harris [00:01:38] You’re cool with that. Thank you. We’re cool with that. We’re loving consumers. Yes. OK, well, anyway, I am, because now this is officially, officially like hybrid. We are officially hybrid. Some of us are at home zooming in.
