Marxist Cult Tries to Occupy Oakland Child Care Centers

Perhaps you've heard of the seven child care centers that the Oakland school district will have to close thanks to state budget cuts. Now, district officials have managed to find enough money to keep five of them open until December, so there's that at least. As for the remaining two, which closed for good on Friday, the Chron reports that the local activist group By Any Means Necessary tried to storm the facilities and reopen them Monday morning, but the cops gave them the boot. For those who haven't followed By Any Means Necessary over the years, it's a front group for the Detroit-based Revolutionary Workers League, a bizarro Trotskyist cult whose members secretly conspire to lure young idealists in and turn them into commie zombies. I suppose they think they're "heightening the contradictions" when they indulge in these pointless theatrics, but they mostly just waste city money on police overtime and make the rest of us wish they'd take up needlepoint or something.
