Chicago Teachers Back on Strike

Thousands of Chicago teachers go on strike after failing to reach contract deal - ABC News

Honk if you think teachers’ unions have been good for America. The aides in the white coats will by with you as soon as possible.

Say! Is that the same Chicago Teachers’ Union that sent a delegation to Venezuela several years ago… to “learn more” about socialism? And pay homage to Hugo Chavez? Why, I believe it is.

The union has just voted, by 73%, to go back on strike all throughout the city. All the kiddies will have to go back on “remote learning.”

They’re pretty serious about this strike: a delegate has threatened to “report” any “dissenters” who showed up for work. He has not gotten around to saying what will happen to dissenters.

Yo, people of Chicago! They keep opening the door of escape for you, and you don’t go through! This is your chance to free yourselves from the Far Left Crazy toxic foolery that we call “public education.” Come on! Do you really want your kids “educated” by these wackos? Those “teachers” hate you, hate your country, hate your way of life–you should be encouraging them to strike all year. These commies belong in front of empty classrooms, teaching empty seats and collecting empty paychecks.

We have never before been shown the heights and the depths of wicked ignorance as our teachers’ unions–and school boards!–have demonstrated in just the last two years. We had no idea how bad it was!

But that excuse ain’t workin’ anymore.

Chicago Teachers Still on Strike

Members of the Chicago Teachers Union and SEIU Local 73 march through the Loop after a rally, three days before the unions could walk off the job on strike, Monday afternoon, Oct. 14, 2019.

When they’re not junketing down to Venezuela to praise the Maduro dictatorship, when they’re not feverishly pushing socialism and “transgender” in their classrooms, the Chicago Teachers Union is on strike–which is where they’ve been now for the better part of a week (

Is there any doubt that these “teachers” are communists? Red banner with clenched fist–that ought to tell you something, eh?

Communists who want more money.

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot, trying to resolve the labor dispute, revealed her total cluelessness when she spoke of how kids “won’t be in classrooms with teachers who hold the keys to their success.” Did I hear that right?

Democrat presidential wannabes are flocking to the support of the striking communists. Bernie Sanders was first on the scene. Now Elizabeth Warren says she’ll go, too–because the communist teachers, she says, are “fighting for the future of our students.” I’m surprised she wasn’t struck by lightning for telling such a lie.

But parents, this is a golden opportunity. Now is your chance to go on strike against these money-wasting awful schools! Do you realize that if you keep your kids out of those schools, there’ll be no more Chicago Teachers Union? Dictator Maduro will have to find some other American communists to lick his boots.

Hey! You pay all the bills–but you don’t get to decide who teaches in those schools and who doesn’t, or what gets taught and what doesn’t. All you do is pay! What kind of a sucker deal is that–huh? Homeschool! Christian school! And leave those jerks with their red banners out there to twist in the wind.
