Teachers Unions Are Attempting Political
Blackmail. It’s Time To Break Them Up

Original Article

Posted By: MissMolly, 8/6/2020 4:41:44 AM

It’s not enough that public school teachers and the college professors who train them are increasingly prone to teaching leftist absurdities like “2+2=5” or presenting the mendacious 1619 Project as legitimate American history. Teachers unions are now trying to blackmail the entire country into meeting a set of leftist political demands for reopening the schools this fall, using COVID-19 as their excuse. Of course, the pandemic certainly presents challenges for re-opening schools, but other sectors of society have managed to rise to the occasion over the past several months to keep the country running.

You bet it's time to break this crazy union up. I say, let them stay home and hire new young teachers that want and need a job.

Ever since the public school teachers got unionized, the quality of our educational system went down the toilet. They also did a pretty good job of destroying and radicalizing our children's brains.

Sure you want these "liberals" to return to having the education of our children? Agree #1, but how to insure the "new young teachers" are not more of the same? Now take a look at the textbooks that have been purchased under Common Core... how many years before new ones can be purchased (they are expensive)... and who will vet them for accuracy and truthfulness?

"Humanism, the religion of Satan" and all that is evil, was declared a "Religion" by our supreme court in 1961, yet it is allowed to be taught in our public schools. Meanwhile, to just say one work of The one true religion, "The religion of God our Father creator of all I AM THAT I AM, is banned by government law. “The battle for mankind’s future must be waged and won in the public school classroom … The classroom must and will become the arena of conflict between old and new --- the rotting corpse of Christianity and the new faith of humanism.” --The Humanist Magazine, Jan./ Feb. 1983 – John J. Dunphy “Education is thus a most powerful ally of humanism. What can a theistic Sunday school’s meeting for an hour once a week and teaching only a fraction of the children do to stem the tide of the five-day program of humanistic teaching?” --Humanism; A New Religion “I think that the most important factor moving us toward a secular society has been the educational factor. Our schools may not teach Johnny how to read properly, but the fact that Johnny is in school until he is sixteen tends toward the elimination of religious superstition. The average American child now acquires a high school education, and this militates against Adam and Eve and all other myths of alleged history.” --P. Blanchard, The Humanist, 1983

A traitor is more to be feared than a conqueror, and we have a public, a government, brimming to overflow with traitors. Destruction from within. Teachers of evil that exists in their own minds. “Let me control the textbooks, and I will control the state.” --Adolph Hitler “Give me your four year old's, and in a generation I will build a socialist (Communist) state.” --Vladimir Lenin “Our enemy is not those with guns, but missionaries with Bible.” --Jiang Zhernin - Head of the Communist Party –People’s Republic of China "Ideas (of freedom) are more dangerous than guns. We don’t let our people have guns. Why should we let them have ideas?" --Josef Stalin "The thoughts of the individual means nothing. The only thoughts that means anything are the thoughts in the minds of the collective leadership." --Josef Stalin “Education is a weapon, whose effect depends on who holds it in his hands and at whom it is aimed.” --Joseph Stalin, former dictator of the Communist Soviet Union

Nobody getting taxpayer money for their paycheck should be able to unionize. This goes from police to border patrol to teachers to IRS employees. Those unions take forced funds out of each paycheck, donate those funds to democrats who then do what they can to increase the public union power whether it be from increased pay or increased employees or increased restrictions on why and how they can be fired. This ensures a massive amount of votes for democrat politicians. What is it? 90% of DC voters voted for Hillary? It's because they all work for the government and are in public unions. Hillary was going to make sure their gravy train kept rolling along. On the flip side, if public unions are so great, let's unionize the military. "Sorry Mr. President. We can't respond the North Korea's nuclear attack on Seattle at the moment because the Navy and Air Force are on strike".

Of course they demand to be paid their normal salary without going in to teach in person. They need that time to riot in the streets with their clubs such as BLM and antifa. The communists need to be destroyed.

Make a requirement that teachers must have at least two years of work experience in industry or military, before they are allowed to teach children. No more teachers straight out of college, with no real-world work experience. Nothing worse than a 21-year old inexperienced snowflake having access to our children's minds!

Like Reagan did with the air traffic controllers that refused to work, we should do the same to teachers that are refusing to return to their classrooms. After all, the "remote learning" has now become the responsibility of the parents. Besides a vast majority of teachers feel their job is indoctrination not education.

Hillary Clinton leveled a jocular broadside against New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd on Saturday, pointing out that the writer appeared to forget wholesale that Clinton chose a man to run as her vice president during the 2016 election. Writing on the 1984 vice presidential candidacy of Geraldine Ferraro ahead of Joe Biden's announcement of a female running mate, Dowd in a Saturday column wrote that it had been "36 years since a man and a woman ran together on a Democratic Party ticket." That claim ignored the 2016 presidential election,

Only part of the dramatic racial differences in age-adjusted COVID-19 death rates can be explained by racial differences. The remainder reflects a substantially lower black survival rate because, we are told, of poverty and inadequate access to healthcare. Once taking into account Latino outcomes, however, these factors alone are unlikely to explain the lower black survival rate. Why are the outcomes for Latinos so much better than for black Americans? There is no comprehensive national measure of cases by race and ethnicity. The CDC has estimates for only 57 percent of national cases. Using these partial estimates, together with population data,

Coming soon to a screen near you is an intriguing and creative new film documentary on Donald Trump, and yours truly and The American Spectator is here offering the first glimpse, courtesy of the talented filmmaker, Robert Orlando. The film is calledCitizen Trump, inspired, yes, by Citizen Kane. Here’s the parallel that Orlando plays out: In 1941, the story of a powerful, larger-than-life, media-driven business tycoon would emerge on the silver screen in a groundbreaking film. The film was a morality tale of the mogul’s bid for high office. The story was Citizen Kane, and the real-life portrait captured in the film was that of William Randolph Hearst.

Florida’s hanging chads from the 2000 Bush vs Gore contest will look like a walk in the park compared to what it will take to declare a winner this year. COVID-19 has completely upended how votes are cast and counted. It is inevitable that in competitive states such as Arizona, Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania delays will happen in getting to the final tally. This is why it is so critical that election officials, starting with Secretaries of State, make it convenient to vote and put in place proper safeguards from the start.

At first glance, Joe Biden's strategy of avoiding the spotlight is paying off. He maintains his consistent lead over Donald Trump in national polls. In June, in the aftermath of the Lafayette Park fiasco, his advantage in the RealClearPolitics average expanded to 10 points. The critical swing states of Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, and Florida are trending his way. His lead gives him the freedom to mollify the progressive wing of his party by shifting leftward on policy. (Snip)There is no question that President Trump is in trouble. But look again at the polls.

Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar’s trip to Taiwan is angering Beijing. Good. Azar will be the highest-ranking US official to visit the island since 1979 and the first US cabinet official to go in six years. China views Taiwan as a part of itself, has sought to isolate it and hopes to regain control there eventually, perhaps by force. By dispatching Azar, President Trump is delivering a clear message of resistance to China’s increasingly egregious behavior.

SALT LAKE CITY – Some Black Lives Matter protesters in Salt Lake City could face up to life in prison if they’re convicted of splashing red paint and smashing windows during a protest, a potential punishment that stands out among demonstrators arrested around the country and one that critics say doesn’t fit the alleged crime. The felony criminal mischief charges are more serious because they carry a gang enhancement. Prosecutors said Wednesday that’s justified because the protesters worked together to cause thousands of dollars in damage, but watchdogs called the use of the 1990s-era law troubling, especially in the context of criminal justice reform and minority communities.

The Seattle City Council voted unanimously on Wednesday in support of police budget proposals that would lay off 100 police officers, despite objections from the city's mayor and police chief. The city council began to reexamine the police department's budget earlier this summer in response to anti-police protests. Mayor Jenny Durkan (D.) and police chief Carmen Best criticized the most recent set of proposals, which would also end the removal of homeless people from the city's streets and cut salaries for police leadership. Durkan said the cuts would hit the "most diverse class" of officers the city has ever had, as police union rules mandate that layoffs are determined by seniority.
