Your tax dollars will be used to create the next generation of hard left social justice warriors.
The University of Michigan will open a new quasi charter public high school in partnership with the Detroit Public Schools Community District this Fall. The School at Marygrove will focus on social justice and engineering. Mostly social justice. The Kresge Foundation is also involved in the school, presumably underwriting some of its finances.
The school will be situated in the former Marygrove College Liberal Arts Building at Wyoming and McNichols in Detroit:
Marygrove College was an esteemed Catholic post secondary education institution which was driven into the ground by Catholic social justice warriors over the last decade. It will be closing its doors just as the latest effort of the secular social justice warriors commences. The left is nothing, if not determined.
Want to see a perfect example of big government thinking?
It’s exposed when defending the little guy becomes suspect, because the advocates for said ‘little guy’ endorse/embrace the constitution. Joshua Akers, an assistant professor of geography and urban and regional studies at the University of Michigan-Dearborn just cannot grasp the motivations of those who would defend the downtrodden.
Akers has issue with a constitutional defense legal firm Pacific Legal ..taking on a constitutional property rights case. Because they might use it for their own ideological (constitutional) ends. Not making this stuff up, and from the Detroit Free Press:
Akers, who has written extensively on the nonprofit, contends the suit filed in Wayne County Circuit Court is a Trojan horse, less concerned with the constitutionality of the annual tax auction and more focused on using the court system to bolster property rights and solidify language around the Fifth Amendment, which prohibits private property from being taken for public use without just compensation.
And because that isn’t enough?
“This seems pretty great — you’re defending the little guy from government overreach. But in the end, what’s lost is the ability to regulate the usage of property. The ability to ensure the health, safety, and well-being of those living around the property,” said Akers explaining that while some homeowner could benefit from this, by and large, it is the wealthy, politically connected and big industries that win.
And there you go. Big industries win when a homeowner gets to keep her house.
Read the rest And consider how much better off we would be if we stopped feeding the beast and defunded these destroyers of our individual freedoms.
The Southeastern Michigan Tea Party will he hosting Conservative Commentator Katie Hopkins at their nest meeting on Friday, June 14th. Doors open at 6:00pm with the meeting beginning promptly at 7:00pm.
Ms. Hopkins will be showing her newest project “Homelands” (along with Q&A following).
Here is a brief synopsis of her documentary:
“There is a silent exodus underway in Western Europe – an entire generation no longer feel like they belong. Intimidated by a rapidly growing Muslim population, fearful of the rabid anti-Semitism of the left, and weary of feeling like targets for attack, Jewish and Christian families are on the move, looking for a new place to call home. They have no voice. Homelands in their story.”
Isn’t that just grand? An illegal alien Mexican drug smuggler is sprung free for $200. Uh-huh, now meet the magistrate.

Okay, I just got back from a weekend with the family and I’m catching up on some correspondence when I came upon this in my inbox from the We Build The Wall organizers over the weekend:
This is Brian Kolfage. I want to make sure you all are aware that we moved our venue to Cobo Center.
Two reasons why. We outgrew the Warren location by a long shot. We aren’t sure how many 1000’s are showing up so we need to be prepared.
Secondly, security. We need command and control of this event and the venue Cobo Center offers this security for our guests.
With onsite secure parking, and onsite security who is trained to deal with these functions they are highly competent. Furthermore, we have 18 on duty Detroit Police Officers dedicated to working out event.
With all these steps taken we believe security of our guests and speakers to be priority and have mitigated any mishaps from protestors who will not be permitted in the venue or building.
This is going to be an awesome event for everyone and want to ensure it’s safe and secure for you and your friends.
Thank you for understanding! I hope to see you there!
While I’m glad at the outpouring of support for this event which apparently has more Conservatives backing it, than who attended last months GOP State Convention (how sad is that), I’ve got to chime in a several items regarding this Thursday’s event.
With all due respect to Mr. Kolfage, if anyone thinks that they’ve got the agitators under control…you don’t.
Yes, you can “secure” Cobo Hall and keep them at bay.
No, you cannot keep them from harassing attendees entering or exiting Cobo, or worse yet, vandalizing property. The Cobo Parking lots CANNOT be secured. Not only is it a public parking lot, it’s just far too big to effectively patrol.
Making matters worse, my sources have tipped me off that they are already aware of the new venue and are already planning for it. Unfortunately, that’s all I have at the moment.
This IS NOT meant to warn people away.
Just the opposite. I want to see as many people as possible at Cobo this Thursday. I especially want to see them arrive and leave as safely as possible for what should be a memorable evening (in a good way).
I would just want to make a friendly warning for attendees to locate other parking options around Downtown Detroit. There are many within walking distance of Cobo, and this is one of the rare times when I’ll advocate using it, take the People Mover to get to and from Cobo.
So to wrap things up, The We Build The Wall Michigan Town Hall will NOW be held at Cobo Hall in Downtown Detroit in Hall “B” from 7:00pm to 8:30pm
And from The We Build The Wall event page:
DOORS OPEN AT 5:30PM SHARP AT COBO CENTER
NEED GOVERNMENT ID MATCHING TICKET TO GAIN ENTRANCE
To ensure the safety and security of all guests, we respectfully request that attendees refrain from bringing back packs or any other personal bags or luggage. Upon arrival you will be subject to a security check prior to entry which will include metal detecting wands and a possible pat down in the event the wand detects metal of any kind.
Again, I’m not trying to scare anyone away. Forewarned and forearmed…that sort of thing.
Lansing – Gov. Gretchen Whitmer will propose a $507 million increase in state K-12 classroom spending in her first budget, including a $180 boost to the minimum per-student grant and substantial funding hikes to teach Michigan’s low-income, vocational and special education students, according to an overview of the plan obtained by The Associated Press
Whitmer’s proposed boost spending for at-risk students, to $619 million – a 20 percent increase – would be the third big spike in five years. The funds help schools provide additional supports, such as tutoring and counseling, to low-income and other disadvantaged students who account for half of Michigan’s 1.5 million students. The funding would equate to $894 per at-risk student, up from about $720.
What are the “3 big spikes in spending” net results?
This is some racist bullshit (yep I cursed again…get over it!) right here. Who is sponsoring it? @onemichigan can help organize some of us to call it out. Our kids and families can’t be exposed to these types of disgusting events. https://t.co/z2ab8GyLar
