Meet Mandi Jung, a Highland Park Middle School biology teacher in Minneapolis who teaches a different type of science class. Well, there doesn’t seem to be much science involved, but if your kid is interested in becoming a Antifa revolutionary, odds are they’re more likely to make Molotov cocktails instead of watching old “Bill Nye the Science Guy” episodes.
This isn’t the Twilight Zone, this is the real world.
Jung and her school are now facing public backlash after it was revealed in a Fox News piece that Jung, for some considerable time, has had a TikTok page dedicated entirely to teaching teachers how to incorporate Marxism into their classrooms.
“My students this year have no respect for authority,” Jung proclaimed in one of her posts. “And I love that in a person because I have no respect for authority whatsoever.”
Obviously that’s what every parent wants to hear coming from their child’s teacher. That’s not all though, there’s more to be upset about.

Insane in the Membrane
Democrats used to get really upset barely a decade ago when you compared them to communists. Now, many actively admit to holding those beliefs and flaunt them in front of you, just like Jung.

The train containing common sense and any semblance of normalcy has left the station and is headed towards the ‘woke’ gulag now. Much like the gulags of old, they’ll be dark and desolate, but because of these progressive times we live in, at least they’ll be ‘inclusive’.
In one post, Jung complained that her communist crusade had begun to backfire in her own classroom, and that her young students-turned-Marxists were starting to turn against her. “But it has been a frustrating year because I am the authority. So I’m like, ‘Damn the man, but I am the man.’”
I, for one, am shocked she’d use such gendered language that only supports the power of the patriarchy.
When she isn’t teaching kids the evils of capitalism, she does get around to some “science.” In one biology lesson, Jung taught the impressionable kids that cells are part of “capitalist indoctrination.”
“Seventh grade science… [is] the year that you learn that the mitochondria is the powerhouse of the cell and all this cell biology,” she said. “So at the end of the unit, I have students take a test. And one of the questions is ‘A person says the nucleus is the most important organelle in the cell. Do you agree or disagree, and why?”
She continued, “And almost every child says, ‘Yes, I agree. Because without a boss, the cell would be in total chaos.”
At that point, she explained that she found this average response to be hilarious because bacteria, in her opinion, is the “original anarchists” compared to other cells with nuclei.
“Bacteria don’t have a nucleus, and they are arguably one of the most successful classes of organisms on the planet. Bacteria out here being the original anarchists, right? No nucleus, no master. Seize the means of metabolism. I don’t know. It’s funny to me,” she said.
At least she finds it funny. If you’re going to make an inaccurate joke about the function of cells and bacteria and somehow turn it into some puns about collectivism, at least let the punchline stick.
If your child’s teacher started openly promoting communism in the classroom, told your kids cells were “capitalist indoctrination,” and that they should “respect no authority,” wouldn’t you complain too?

No Shame Among Comrades
After Jung’s communist teachings were reported, she shared to her Instagram page a screenshot of the Fox article, stating that all this attention has “managed to make me look like the most fun and coolest teacher ever.” Her school district also commented shortly after the story was published.
“As a general rule, public employees, as citizens, have the right to personally comment on the matters of public importance without restriction or reprisal by their employer,” the statement from the district said.
How brave of them to stand up for Jung, who is a modern day combination of Ms. Frizzle from “The Magic School Bus” and Joseph Stalin, killer of millions.
Much like Ms. Frizzle, she’ll probably take students on imaginary adventures into fictional realms where communism actually worked (nowhere), and just like Stalin, the students will be starved… of a real education.
