Marco Amaral is a teacher, a communist and “Raza” (Hispanic racial/ethnic) nationalist. In 2022, he is campaigning in the primary to be the Superintendent of Public Instruction. So, every voter should know what his real political ideology is about. Amaral is almost completely open about being a radical who believes in a violent revolution.
Update: The San Diego Union-Tribune actually endorsed Marco. They want such a radical, anti-American to be making policy for California schools. Click here for more info.
Amaral believes that he should teach radical Marxist and La Raza racial identity ideology in the schools and he has been doing it for quite a few years already. This post is not intended to incite any physical violence against Amaral, as he has claimed in the past, but to better inform the public about his fanatical political ideology, especially to inform the parents of the children he is intends to radicalize.
First, this video below was a campaign ad when he ran for the Board of Trustees in 2018. He subsequently won a seat on the South Bay Union School District in San Diego County. The photo of him at a protest in the beret and paramilitary uniform has been added to the video.

Serious About Systemic Change Interview – 2021
This following quote came from an interview posted on the revolutionary Marxist/anarchist website, puntorojomag.org –
Serious about Systemic Change: an interview with Marco Amaral
As an educator, how have your political principles shaped your approach in the classroom? How have your experiences in the classroom shaped your political outlook?
I have identified as an Internationalist for several years now. Internationalism pushes me to engage the scholarly and social work of people from around the world, specifically – people that are struggling against the forces of oppression and bigotry. Therefore, after years of engaging as an activist educator influenced by the work of people ranging from Frantz Fanon and Antonia Darder to Paulo Freire and the resistance work of Indigenous communities, I decided that my classroom couldn’t be confined to the limited understandings of the “American Educational Model.”
Amaral says he was most influenced by Frantz Fanon, among two others. Fanon was a revolutionary Marxist and radical anti-colonialist, who advocated violent overthrow of the system, even via a “murderous campaign”, as he says. I don’t know about the other two that he mentions as influences, but I would guess they have similar radical ideologies.
Below is a quote from page 2 of “The Wretched of the Earth” by Frantz Fanon. This is Fanon’s most well-known book. You don’t have to read very far to find Fanon preaching violent, bloody revolution. A central theme of the book is that extreme violence is necessary in order to overthrow the existing, so-called “colonial systems” around the world. Is this what Californians would like their children to be taught?

Nicaraguan Molotov Man -2018
At one time Amaral had this famous photo of a Nicaraguan revolutionary, called the “Molotov Man”, uploaded to his Facebook page, but he took it down when he ran for the school board. It tells you that he identifies with communist bomb throwers.
Teaching Kids To Hate Police – 2018
Amaral identifies as a Marxist revolutionary and Chicano ethnic/racial militant. Here he is seen marching with a banner in Spanish that reads, “Students for the Liberation of Aztlan”. “Aztlan” refers to the Southwestern US, which militant Chicanos claim as the national homeland of La Raza (The Race), that is the Hispanic mestizo race.
Amaral believes in radicalizing students. The melee in the video below started when a student assaulted a police sergeant. The school where he teaches is about a mile away. Why would he be so much involved and he just happens to be on the spot taking video? It just seems that maybe Amaral inspired this conflict or even directly instigated it.
Federal Civil Rights Lawsuit Against San Diego City – 2016
Amaral filed a federal civil rights lawsuit for police brutality against San Diego City, due to his arrest at an anti-Trump protest on November 9, 2016. A large crowd protested Trump election in 2016 in Downtown San Diego. When they started setting fires, the police declared it an unlawful assembly. Amaral failed to disperse and was arrested. He claimed that he was injured during the in the arrest. The Case number and title is 3:17-cv-02409-L-LL, Amaral v. City of San Diego et al.

After about 3.5 years of litigation, the judge dismissed the case. According to court documents, Amaral spent over $10K in attorney fees and other court costs, which may be just a rough number.
Trotskyites March on Border Wall Rally – 2017
On December 9, 2017, Comrade Amaral marched at the head of a group of about 15 others on a rally for the border wall. Their intention appeared to be to disrupt the rally, which would be attended by Congressman Duncan Hunter.
They marched behind two banners for the International Socialist Organization, which according to the ISO Wikipedia page is an openly communist (Trotskyite). organization. Leon Trotsky, along with Lenin was, of course, one of main leaders of the Russian communist revolution in 1917.
This is Marco Amaral, berating and harassing the sheriff’s deputies. The banner behind him reads, “Ban the Wall”, “Sanctuary for All” and “International Socialist Organization”.
An image of the other ISO Banner follows, which displays the revolutionary clinched fist and the reads “International Socialist Organization”, “Unite and Fight”. The communists were urging the group to fight, then they blamed others for starting the fight and claimed to be the victims.
Ironically, after another communist teacher, Justin Akers Chacon of City College, sucker-punched a 17-year-old boy, a brawl did break out, Amaral and the other Trotskyites complained bitterly and blamed the Sheriff’s deputies for not protecting them. This was even though they are vehemently anti-police, their own banner called for a fight and one of the communists threw the first punch, striking an adolescent in the face.
One of Amaral’s associates, involved in this brawl, admitted at another event that he is a “communist”. He is the one wearing the red cap and white scarf at about 2:20 in the video below and goes by “Rafael Bautista”. Ironically, in real life he appears to be a real estate agent, a mortgage broker and a manager of a small landscaping business. He’s a capitalist in real life, but he appears to have a fantasy of being a communist revolutionary, which he plays as a role in his spare time. Well, a person has to eat, I guess, and it is difficult to make a living spouting communist rhetoric and preaching revolution.
There is a good-sized cadre of those in San Diego County. who identify as communist, anti-American revolutionaries. Amaral and Rafael Bautista are just two of this group of such radicals. They are part of this revolutionary scene.

Occupy Cal (Berkeley)- 2011
Amaral has long been a leftist radical, at least since his student days. He was a political science major at University of California, Berkeley and an organizer of the Occupy Cal movement in 2011 and was an organizer of this event in the video below when 40 protesters were arrested by UC Berkeley police. This protest occurred on November 10, 2011. Comrade Amaral does not seem to be in this video, but he was an organizer and spokesman for the group.
See the links for more information. Amaral is cited as a spokesman in the articles linked below.
