Posted on 04/09/2011 5:02:10 AM PDT by Kaslin
I believe there is a difference between rank-and-file teachers and the leadership of radical teachers’ unions. The trouble is, the rank-and-file sits idly by as the radicals embarrass them, time and time again. Perhaps we’ve reached the point where the rank-and-file can rightfully be accused of being complicit of such behavior.
Why aren’t teachers angrily denouncing a recent resolution passed by the California Federation of Teachers in which the union "reaffirms support for death row journalist Mumia Abu-Jamal"?
The American Federation of Teachers, led by Randi Weingarten, has to date issued no statement in opposition to this offensive resolution.
And what does the AFL-CIO, the parent to the AFT think? More importantly, what do the police members of the AFL-CIO think? After all, Abu-Jamal was convicted of killing one of their own.
Or don’t they care?
At what point will the teachers’ unions be more concerned with the pitiful state of public education than they are about the fate of a convicted cop killer, or other unrelated issues like gay rights, national health care or American foreign policy?
Mumia Abu-Jamal, a hero of hardcore radical leftists – to some because he executed a police officer – does not deserve the honor and respect of teachers. It sends the wrong message to children. But the fact that the union would take the time to pass such a resolution shows the purpose of the union: to pass a radical agenda that has little if anything to do with education.
How PC of them
Disgusting isn’t it?
Good morning parents.
When you think about it, public education isn’t really about education is it? Isn’t about time you begin to think of homeschooling?
One more American for truth and freedom
Why hasn’t that SOB been fried and this issue annulled.
I wouldn’t blame individual teachers for this at all. Rank and file members of unions really don’t have a voice in changing such policies, it just isn’t in the cards.
Unions really aren’t democratic type outfits, they are run from the top down.
Example given, here in Pittsburgh. About 10 years ago, an SEIU local had an election for officers. The long time president of the local, a Ms. Trump, was very popular with the SEIU brass in Washington and faced a challenge from a local government employee.
Trump lost, the maverick won in a stunning turnaround.
Within 6 weeks, the international put the local into receivership, disposed the new president and installed their own people. The fellow who was elected ended up worse off than he was, he had quit his government job to take the union presidency gig.
Yer confusing Unions with some form of democratic organization. (Yeah, they DO suppport the big-D Democratic party exclusivly).
Once the commies get ahold of them—THAT’S IT!!
Abu-Jamal is alive precisely because liberal groups, like the California Teachers Union, keep funding his appeals!
These are the evil bass turds that we allow to indoctrinate our kids.
Today He has abandoned portions of our society. How long before He abandons the entire country?
Romans 1:28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; 29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, 30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, 31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: 32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them. Who would put their children under the influence of people who God has abandoned?
This is a great example you can use for your “independent” or “marginally liberal” thinking friends!
Let’s reveal the face of liberals:
1) The Tea Party is full of racists, bigots, etc.
2) Gun owners are just criminals waiting to commit crimes.
3) Corporate executives are white-collar thieves.
But, convicted cop-killers are innocent.
The California Federation of Teachers are just another example of the classic term: USEFUL IDIOTS
If freed and left to implement his racist agenda, Mumia Abu-Jamal would personally slit the throats of every lily white member of the California Federation of Teachers as a thank you.
And they say the tea party is extreme? pfft.
They are afraid of the thugs in their own union.
Wife and I were originally from outside the Burgh, still religiously watch Pens & Steelers; but from along the Yukon nowadays.
So they like a murdering, scumbag, piece of shit, cop killer.
What a shock since they are california teachers....
Idiots. Several people saw him do it and he was found with the murder weapon and several spent casings right beside him. They love him because he’s a radical, not because he’s innocent.
Mumia Abu Jamal has supporters across the nation. He is popular with some students. He is a cause for the Black Panthers because he is one of the most famous. I predict he will be high on the Obama Holder list for a last minute pardon before Obama leaves the whitehouse. Holder has a history of freeing terrorists. The assasination of Officer Dan Faulkner by Jamal means nothing to the suppporters of the movement.
Organize April 4th No Business As Usual
Day of Action
April 4th came and went here in California and nobody noticed a No Business As Usual Day of Action unless it meant No Teaching as Usual Day of Inaction.
Would you want these people teaching your children?
I agree 100%
I do expect the Obamanation, Attorney Racist Holder and the entire Obamanation Justice Department to do everything they can to thwart justice in the Mumia case.
See post 25.
What do you want to do when you grow up Mumia?
Be a death row journalist.
Mrs. Eagle was a school teacher here in California for 10 years before illness forced her to retire. For the most part, there is not a huge difference between MOST of the teachers and The Teachers' Unions.
All but a couple of her fellow teachers were your garden variety brain-dead Liberal Obamatons.
The main Homeschool Ping List handles the homeschool-specific articles. I hold both the Homeschool Ping List and the Another Reason to Homeschool Ping list. Please freepmail me to let me know if you would like to be added to or removed from either list, or both.
It is time that conservatives work to shutter all the government K-12 schools, raze the buildings, and salt the earth.
Damn, that hadn’t even crossed my mind.
I didn’t think of this but I think you are correct. I hope it doesn’t happen but won’t be shocked if it does.
I didn’t know that California had a shortage of cop killers who say they didn’t do it. It’s a shame that they have to outsource to another state.
Of course. Public employee unions have never been about working conditions. They should be abolished but it'll never get done in the states that need it the most like CA.
Huckabeeee could offer his personal experience and expertise on this.
“Who would put their children under the influence of people who God has abandoned?”
That is the biggest question in this discussion...
Psalms 1:1 Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.
As parents we need to take back our responsibility to raise/educate our children. And we need to do it in a way that will lead to them being blessed and not corrupted...
1 Corinthians 15:33-34 Do not be misled: “Bad company corrupts good character.” Come back to your senses as you ought, and stop sinning; for there are some who are ignorant of God - I say this to your shame.
