    Every taxpayer from Kansas and Missouri should write and complain to their congressman and to the University President. These are state universities, and our taxpayer dollars are funding this crap! I'm mad as hell after watching this!!!

    I'm calling on my neighboring trapshooters to take action and get on the phone tomorrow!

    A few quick and simple queries confirms Don Giljum is indeed, Business Manager for IUOE local 148 in the St. Louis, Mo. area.

    It is less clear that Giljum is a communist. One reference included a photo of Giljum hobknobbing at an honors event hosted by the communist party. However, in that article Giljum was identified as a member of the Democratic Socialist(s) of America.

    On a side note, it is clear that the video has been extensively edited. That always makes me leery. Such editing is can condense an hour of seemingly endless droning into a few minutes without materially changing the content. It is also possible to creatively edit in such a way as to grossly distort a speaker's message.

    Based on five minutes internet research and Giljum's own words, I find it hard to imagine him as an innocent.

    PS: FWIW, the phrase 'democratic socialist' is redundant.
