‘#RedforEd’ Demands AZ Teachers Join Walkout

How “red” are they?

The head honcho of the Arizona teachers’ union has called upon union members to “intimidate” teachers who won’t join a May Day walkout planned by the “#RedforEd” movement within several teachers’ unions nationwide (https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2019/04/23/watch-az-teachers-union-head-pressures-teachers-to-intimidate-colleagues-to-join-redfored-walk-outs/). By “intimidate” he means “coerce and bully,” not to mention “threaten.”

It makes me think of Abe Vigoda playing a union boss in a Rockford Files episode. Asked about some of the activities of union goons, the boss replies, “We call them labor  consultants now.”

Supposedly this is about higher pay and, ahem, a better education for the kiddies. In 2016 Arizona teachers ranked 43rd in the nation in salary. It’s about mo’ money. But critics think it’s also about clamping down a Far Left Crazy ideology on all teachers in all the public schools… as if they didn’t already have one.

Anyway, they’ve got the union boss on video calling for strongarm tactics, a la Jimmy Hoffa in the bad old days, and we’ll have to see just how radical those tactics turn out to be.

Do you trust these people to educate your children?

Would you like to buy the Brooklyn Bridge?
