Chicago Teachers Union President Karen Lewis recently claimed she isnt politically radical.
Tell that to the Democratic Socialists of America.
The DSA recently honored the CTU and various activists for their work on left-wing causes at its 55th Annual Debs-Thomas-Harrington Dinner in Chicago.
The socialist group recognized the CTU for consistently stand[ing] for education and professionalism. The union has shown that organizing is more than just mobilization and that defending a public good requires an organized public, the socialist group said,
Since when is walking out on struggling children during a 10-day strike standing for professionalism? What does it say about the CTU when its winning and accepting awards from socialists?
It tells us that this teachers union is not working to prepare children to succeed in the real America, where individual effort and responsibility are hallmarks of a successful capitalistic system that the socialists love to hate.
The DSA also honored Keith Kelleher, a long-time leader of SEIU health care workers in Illinois and Indiana. The DSA notes Kelleher received a much belated (from 2007) greeting from Barack Obama.
The socialist group is delivering messages from Obama? What does that say about the company our president kept before taking office, and where his heart truly lies?
William McNary, a rabble-rouser with the far-left Citizen Action, also received an award for his passionate oratory that has been an inspiration to action.
EAGnews caught McNarys style of passionate oratory on camera when he challenged Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker to a fist fight.
See the video here!
The Democratic Socialists of America is nothing more than a rabble-rousing group that wants to create dissention and attack the social and economic foundations that made America great.
Being honored by such a group is certainly nothing to be proud of.
But the socialist awards do serve a useful purpose for the general public. They identify the groups and individuals that share the DSAs anti-American views and should be avoided at all costs.
Nothing good comes out of Chicago.
Haha . . . they honor the teachers unions for having worst schools and uneducated kids in the country. Only a socialist organization would honor someone for incompetence . . . sounds about right.
Pimped stupid Teacher Union of course let’s them pimp them: “yes we can.”
Once in a while a gay guy should have a head straight and hate this patronizing, flattery and being used, all celebrated like this.
Furget about it...
... and this is why the “gay-conservative” is another invention. None of them go about denouncing the pride parades the communist put them through.
Sometimes I feel like joining socialists to celebrate mean liberal teachers stupidly celebrating their own getting destroyed, exploited and hated like this. Ah, “celebrate our getting screwed for your political gains”. Yep, very tempting. What a last meal for the food chain!!
Chicago is, was and I expect will continue to be the home of the Marxist movement in the United States. It has been since the early days and the Haymarket riot. The schools are infested and the citizens are totally clueless.
