Chicago Teachers Union Official: This strike is about educational justice and it’s our Arab Spring!

This CTU official tells Sharpton that the strike is about educational justice:

“It’s about educational justice. We are in a time nationally where our students – black and brown students to be very clear – are under the pressure of privatizers who want to collect off of the pathology that plagues our communities. That’s what is going on here in Chicago.”

She goes on to say this is their Arab Spring:

Wouldn’t it be great if there was a Reagan in charge in Chicago and simply fired all of the teachers that are on strike and then re-hire only the good ones and without a union crutch for them to lean on anymore.

This is representative of Obama’s world–give me, give me, give me more. The worst of public schools is on display in Chicago right now for anyone with eye sight to see. Unfortunately the liberals and their supporters are as blind as bats when it is so obvious.

“the pathology that plagues our communities…”

What is that exactly?

I would never allow my children to go to public Communist school.

Ironically these teacher fools carry signs that say “Eat the Rich” and yet they make more money than the majority of Americans. Hypocrites.

If these teachers really wanted educational justice, they would all resign immediately…

To the parents of the Chicago public school system. If you loose your jobs due to the classless, Godless, divisive, intolerant, class warfare, and tax the public by any means necessary Chicago Teachers Union. PLEASE! bring a class action lawsuit and help cripple this thoughtless and uncaring Chicago Teachers Union. And have your state legislatures enact a Taylor Law that prohibits all city and state employees from ever striking.
Remember the Federal air traffic controllers strike when Ronald Reagan was president. It is a federal law that no federal agency can strike. What did Reagan do? Fired them!
The state of Illinois needs to enact such a law to all its municipalities and its government work force.

So this is their ‘Arab Spring’? What will they do next, burn the American flag and kill an assistant principal to get what they want? Arab Spring is a jihad and should be treated as such.

We should be at war with those people that attack our embassy and kill our ambassadors, so relating yourself to “Arab Spring’ is very dangerous and stupid.

BTW, the sign “Fools rush in” just below a picture of Sharpton was quite appropriate.

I was wondering the same thing. What’s their equivalent of an embassy? Maybe they’ll be busting into their local administration buildings and burning things?

60 years to get jobs, education and decent housing and still blacks think they can use the race stick any time they didn’t get the attention they wanted. How pathetic.

Nobody gives a shit about your inner city problems. If I had a sick dog, I wouldn’t take it to an inner city vet. 39% of these teachers aren’t stupid enough to send their own children to the inner city schools, but rather send their children to privatizers.

It’s gonna get real cold and real lonely in the inner city.

I gotta ask: does anyone want these people coming into contact with your kids or grandkids? They look like the kind of people you get restraining orders on.

It’s not representative of all teachers…..activists are running this, I’m sure of it. I didn’t see a single teacher protesting by the HS I’m across. It’s mostly (IMO) people shipped in to make a statement (IMO to re-brand OWS).

These are some seriously sick, twisted people. I’d love to see someone with some backbone pull a Reagan and simply fire them all. The unions are a plague on this nation. Criminals. Parasites. Thugs.

Thats astounding. She is a keeper of the pathological plague. No cures allowed. A leper colonizer; secular mercantilism. Drawing sustenance on a suffering population. Economic indentured servitude by liberals. And tenured jobs for life. Oh by the way-no competition allowed.

Educational justice? Where’s the justice for the kids that have to sit in the lousy crappy over paid schools? Where’s the justice for the honest hard working people who are taxed to death just so you can have your “free” health care and other bennies? Where’s the justice for the rest of us who have to listen to your whining you crap wagon?!
Grow up and quit yer bellyaching as my 12 year old would say.
Throw out the crappy mis spelled signs and get back to work and be grateful for once in your miserable lives that you even have a freaking JOB!!!

Why don’t more parents homeschool?

Who more than the liberals prey on the pathology of the needy nanny state? They don’t know the meaning of justice…….it would include all children to begin with, racist fools that they are, can’t even say white children are entitled to this so called educational justice, too.

Needs moar BOLD- j/k

Yea, it seems that way, but a lot of these guys are the activist revolutionaries disguised. I think this is the re-image of OWS under the guise of teachers (a more sympathetic view). The communist(s) in the unions and their world-wide connections need to be exposed. Where is Glenn Beck? I don’t mean that he’s not making the case, but I just wish he were still on TV to inform the public about the roots of these movements…..nothing was as powerful as his show on FNC.

Edit: I hope they keep up this attempt at intimidation through the election- it should secure their loss, because I still believe we outnumber these people. It’s a gamble, but it’s all they have at this point. If I’m wrong, this will motivate their voter [fraudsters].

If this teachers strike continues I would like to see the parents bring a class action lawsuit against the Chicago Teachers Union for being the cause of parents loosing their jobs, their income and their health benefits.

I’d like to see them not have a job to go back to, truck loads of teachers from all over the world should take their jobs right out from under them.

The kids are better off not learning the garbage they are spoon fed in public school. I hope parents who care about their children decide to home school during this mayhem!
