Skip to comments.Thuggery: Chicago Teachers Union president jokes about murdering wealthy people

Remember Karen Lewis? Shes Chicago thuggery personified. I introduced you to her last September when she spearheaded the abandonment of 350,000 schoolchildren over merit-based pay, teacher evaluations, and a 16 percent pay raise:
Derision is her specialty. Her tirades at teachers confabs are infamous. Dont feel sorry for her when she moans about Mayor Rahm Emanuels bully tactics and trash mouth. Lewis has one of her own.
Well, that trash mouth is baaaaack. Intrepid Kyle Olson of EAGNews.com caught Lewis joking about labor leaders who seriously contemplated killing the rich during the robber baron era.
When Lewis appeared at the Illinois Labor History Societys Salute to Labors Historic Heroes from the History Makers of Today, she didnt disappoint the crowd. She threw gasoline onto the fire of class warfare, and even mentioned mob killings of wealthy Americans.
Do not think for a minute that the wealthy are ever going to allow you to legislate their riches away from them. Please understand that. However, we are in a moment where the wealth disparity in this country is very reminiscent of the robber baron ages. The labor leaders of that time, though, were ready to kill. They were. They were just off with their heads. They were seriously talking about that.
Some in the audience laughed and clapped at her remark.
I dont think were at that point, Lewis laughingly replied, without specifying when that point might arrive. And thats scary to most people. But the key is they think nothing of killing us. They think nothing of putting our people in harms way. They think nothing of lethal working conditions.

From the lips of this idiot, in the article:
“They [the rich] think nothing of lethal working conditions.
She then used schools without air conditioning as an example of lethal working conditions.
The robber barons of the previous century whom she began by condemning went to schools without air conditioning. As did, I suspect, most of those in the higher income brackets today. I know neither my grammar school nor my high school were air condtioned.
Talk about wanting to kill the geese who lay the golden eggs! Wonder where she thinks teachers salaries and union dues comes from? What an idiot.....
,,,, this is much worse than a 6 yr. old first grader using his finger to simulate a hand gun in class ,,, this idiot should know better . We can now blame him for promoting violent deadly criminal acts against innocent Americans . When I last checked it was not against any law to be wealthy .
and THAT is one more reason we “need” 30 rd magazines.
It might take 30 rounds just to stop Ms. Lewis. I won’t be racist and mention an African animal, but perhaps ... enraged musk ox.
I’m guessing he was excluding himself.
Educating our children......................in what? Protection breeds confident arrogance in what you say and how you say it. The regime has been sucessful in allowing these people the forum to make threats and agitate the masses. Planting the seed “the rich” and baseing this on all that is wrong in thier unproductive, useless lives is a fire starter. Westchester ny Journal article listing all the gun owners in their surrounding area and how to find their homes is another form. The tiger is being poked from all ends and the pokees are hoping for an attack so they are right in demanding martial law and the regime is all to happy to comply
If I were a wealthy conservative, I would put together an action team for people like this. Not talking about violence, but calculated dropping of banana peels in the paths of certain nefarious characters and organizations.
For instance, I was reading the other day about how they had isolated and chemically reproduced the chemical essence of what makes skunk scent stink, and were considering its military applications, since a single drop would clear a room. When I read that, my mental wheels started spinning...MOO Hoo HwahHaHaHa.. .
You can add butyric acid (butanoic acid) smalls like rancid butter. Hydrogen sulfide gas smalls like rotten eggs.
That was all before global warming happened.
Lethal working conditions? I assume she’s referring to Chicago public schools.
Gotta admit, she’s got a point.
Voucher the schools. It’s for the teachers.
They think nothing of lethal working conditions.
Yea! I bet the teachers are armed.
For children to be taught to hate is a terrible thing.
And we hand over our kids to government schools (indoctrination centers) to be “educated” by riff raff like this?
