Far-lefties pushing Gramscism on 5-year-olds in Massachusetts

Here's a test. Is the following report from Massachusetts in 2005, or from the Soviet Union in 1965 and I've just changed the names and locations? You decide:
While the trial of a Massachusetts parent arrested while attempting to secure a promise from school officials to notify parents before teaching about homosexuality in his son's kindergarten class has been postponed until next month, the school district is taking a hard line against such notification.

Paul Ash, the superintendent of schools in Lexington, has announced his instructions to all teachers in the district to give no notice to parents of efforts to teach "diversity" lessons about "alternative lifestyles" – even in primary grades.

In April, David Parker of Lexington spent a night in jail and was charged with criminal trespassing after refusing to leave a scheduled meeting with officials [over the policy]...
What kind of lessons were involved?
...Parker's then-5-year-old son brought home a book to be shared with his parents titled, "Who's in a Family?" The optional reading material, which came in a "Diversity Book Bag," depicted at least two households led by homosexual partners.

The illustrated book says, "A family can be made up in many different ways" and includes this text:

"Laura and Kyle live with their two moms, Joyce and Emily, and a poodle named Daisy. It takes all four of them to give Daisy her bath."

Another illustrated page says:

"Robin's family is made up of her dad, Clifford, her dad's partner, Henry, and Robin's cat, Sassy. Clifford and Henry take turns making dinner for their family."
Answer: no, this is actually from Massachusetts in the United States. If it had been the Soviet Union, Parker would be in Siberia by now, and "liberals" haven't gotten to that point yet.

This is another example, of a nazi doing something ironic, lets face it gays are persecuted everywhere, gays, are bullied for being gays in every schools in Britaina nd australia, they are burned by nazi rap singers in jamaica and the carribean, and then comes along this scumbag, and preteneds there is no homophobia against gays, the fact is, he actually said he does nopt like it when gays get things, does he moan, about others, does he moan at homes for battered women, does he say, "why are they no homes for non-battered women, does he moan at the lifeboat association coming to rescue people who are not in trouble at sea, no he does, not, all he is doing this for is his hatred of gays, gays need gay pride, and respect, and along come scum like him to critise them, and sday their is no homophobia, and then tell gays, "i have no hatred of gays, i just do not like the weay gays get anything", i think gays need special tretament just like everybody needs specvial tretament, after all farmers like him get subsidies, farmers, like him get a farming minister, farmers, like him get this and that, the fact he said all tyhis anti-gay stuff, is as he thinks they desrve no help, that society should pretend gays do not exist, and so deserve no way where society tries to suit them to a extent, rather than ask them to suit society, this is a great triumph of liberalism, that society says society is not just about bulluies, andf homophobes and racists, that gays, pay taxd, and deserve rights, that we all deserv rights, that governments should try and attack homophboia, and bullying, and the high suicide rate of gays, and aborginiees, by having people in government who understand them, just like how the police are mostly working class thugs, so understand working class thugs, we should have people in society who understand reasnoble gay concerns, or beaten wives, or other geroups, about bullying, i think the horrible evil aussie nazi, is like the people from easy rider, who when they see somebody diofferent they just hate them, and then beat the guys to death, you know the scumbags in teh pub, who beat jack nicholson to death, i think he is like that, and he pretedning as he likes killing kangaross, and drinking beer that makes him more of a man, than anybody else, it does not, all it shows is that he likes drinking beer, and killing kangaroos, i bet if all th people who actually are saying on the internet they support him, actually had a chat with him, he would say if they were american "oh mate i hate all americans" and then beat you up, and kill you, if you were Brit, he would say"is it true all brits are faggots, " and then kill you, then some serial killer woman, i think people like him should be executed in gulags, its not fair that people like him are alive, while gays kill themslves, and are burned to death, and while gays are bullied, and if they turned up ata kanagroo shoot, scum like him would probably spend the whole time, mocking agys, i think this waffen ss officer should be dealt with the same way the soviets dealt with nazi cvoncentration camp guards, if we had locked up you maerican nazis, global warming would not be ocurring, and ther world would not see 250 million deaths as of george bush's murders

More on Gramsci: I've seen a frontpagemag.com article which credits Gramsci with the idea of the "long march through the institutions." That is, if leftists can gain control of the educational institutions, the younger generation can be indoctrinated. Since the older generation will die off in time, the leftists will win.

A reference to the late Italian Marxist Antonio Gramsci(1891-1937), who stressed the importance of "cultural hegemony" as opposed to the more dramatic forms of "class struggle".
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antonio_Gramsci
(...)
His critics charge him with fostering a notion of power struggle through ideas that finds a reflection in recent academic controversies such as political correctness. They find the Gramscian approach to ideas, reflected in these controversies, to be in conflict with open-ended, liberal inquiry grounded in the classics of Western culture. To credit or blame Gramsci for the travails of current academic politics is an odd turn of history, since Gramsci himself (unlike most major 20th century thinkers) was never an academic, and was in fact deeply intellectually engaged with Italian culture, history, and current liberal thought.
(...)
Of course Gramsci, like anyone else of his time, could hardly have predicted the Bizarro World of today's Europe and North America.
