NEA Racial and Social Justice Conference: Itís about ACTION
National Education Association ^ | June 28, 2017 | Mary Ellen Flannery

Posted on 06/29/2017 7:28:55 PM PDT by mdittmar

In the face of racism, anti-immigrant rhetoric and legislation, Islamophobia, trans-phobia, and a host of other phobias and –isms that affect millions of U.S. students and educators, NEA educators committed to racial and social justice are meeting in Boston this week during NEA’s annual Conference on Racial and Social Justice.

“Every year at this conference, I’ve seen you choose to be in the room…You want to be the best human beings you can be. I’m telling you now—it’s not enough,” said NEA President Lily Eskelsen García Wednesday morning. “It’s not about you being a better person, it’s not about me being a better person…This conference is bigger than any one of us: This conference is about taking on institutional racism, homophobia, and discrimination in all its forms.”

Too bad the National Education Association knows nothing about education.

Eff them and the hermaphrodite horse they rode in on.

An education degree declares that the owner most probably could do nothing else. Not even the lowly profession of politics.

Go to iPatriot and and find the article “What is Justice”. “Social” justice and “Racial” justice is no justice at all. Justice is a special thing, evolved over millennia of history. Once you add a “modifier” to it, you have put your finger on the “scale of justice”, destroying the balance that real Justice is supposed to produce. Social and Racial justice means that everyone else in the world will get no justice at all. Kind of like Holder’s DOJ where “whites need not apply” for any justice. Divide and conquer, the progressive way. Misery for everyone! Regards.

If the NEA members spent more time teaching and less time preaching, perhaps their students would actually get a good, balanced education, not a left-wing propagandizing harangue the would be worthy of Stalin and Mao.

These people are insane. Never has there been more freedom, less racism, more equality, more opportunity for all than at the present time. Anyone who is willing to get off his butt can make a good life for himself in this country. Anyone.

This is insanity.

Immorality, "group rights", sanctioned racism that favors blacks and darker skinned people, the embrace of vile sexual perversion, and Marxism.

All wrapped up with a vicious attack against whites, Christians, families, heterosexuals, men, and morality.

This is the enemy.
They seek destruction of a great nation.
They choose to destroy YOUR children, for their own power.

And they demand YOU pay for it all.

Talk about Cajones . . .
