“…we must begin educating and valuing the input of the next generation of Democratic Socialists.” – DSA Resolution 25: Childcare
The Portland, Oregon branch of America’s largest Marxist organization, the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA), is bragging about winning “Preschool for All”, a communist program similar to one being proposed by Joe Biden which undermines parental authority and indoctrinates children. The initiative would raise $132 million by taxing households that make over $200k per year, a Leninist strategy.
Socialists have long been promoting “Universal Preschool.” Unsurprisingly, it was reported in July that Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden unveiled a $775 billion plan for “universal preschool, child care and elder care” “that aims to fundamentally shift the way American families care for each other, both at the beginning of life and at the end.” Joe Biden’s unconstitutional effort includes a “public health jobs corps of 100000 people.”
The Universal Preschool campaign in Multnomah County is completely driven by communists, and supported by subversive “progressive” organizations. One of the main organizers of Measure 26-214 in Portland is Emily Von W. Gilbert, a self-described “anti-fascist socialist feminist”.
“At our April 2019 General Meeting, Portland DSA voted to put a measure on the Multnomah County ballot through Oregon’s citizens’ initiative process,” Portland DSA explained in an email sent to supporters on November 21, 2020. “The measure would tax the rich, pay preschool teachers a fair wage, and give preschool to every kid in the county…And on Election Day 2020, we had 64% of the vote and WE WON,” they bragged.
Preschool for All has been recognized nationally as a ray of hope in these dark times. It never would have happened without the vision and dedication of Portland DSA members.— Portland DSA (@PortlandDSA) November 14, 2020

RAIR Foundation USA warned Americans over a year ago about Measure 26-214, which was a part of the larger national DSA resolution #25 to “educate” the “next generation of Democratic Socialists”. Other approved resolutions included solidarity with Cuba and a resolution to work closely with Antifa groups.
From the DSA childcare resolution:
“Socialism recognizes that childrearing should be a communal undertaking, and that by providing welcoming and supportive spaces for children, we can support both those children’s own social, political, and emotional development, along with ameliorating their primary caregivers’ alienation and atomization under capitalism;
Our own organizing spaces must be inclusive, accessible, and welcoming to people of all ages, including families with children, and we must begin educating and valuing the input of the next generation of Democratic Socialists.”
The childhood-robbing initiative was supported by “more than 30 groups, including at least 10 labor organizations: Northwest Oregon Labor Council, PAT, Reynolds Education Association, AFSCME Local 88, UFCW Local 555, ILWU, CWA Local 7901, PSU-AAUP, PCCFAP, and National Association of Letter Carriers Branch 82,” as reported at a newsletter for unions in the northwest.
The parents who will take part in the “Universal Preschool” program in Portland, Oregon are likely unaware of the real goal of “free” childcare.
