SAY WHAT? Chicago Teachers Union tweets, deletes reopening schools is ‘rooted in sexism, racism, and misogyny’

In a since-deleted tweet, the Chicago Teachers Union – which represents more than 28,000 educators in the nation’s third largest city – made the outlandish claim that reopening schools is “rooted in sexism, racism, and misogyny.”



In a since-deleted tweet, the Chicago Teachers Union – which represents more than 28,000 educators in the nation’s third largest city – made the outlandish claim that reopening schools is “rooted in sexism, racism, and misogyny.”

After removing the politicized message, the union followed up by citing nuance.

“Fair enough. Complex issue. Requires nuance. And much more discussion. More importantly, the people the decision affects deserve more. So we’ll continue to give them that. Appreciate the feedback of those truly in the struggle.”

Chicago schools, which have been closed since March, plan to reopen in early 2021. But, parents may opt-out and have their children continue with remote learning if they choose.

Chicago is not the only city struggling with the idea of reopening schools. Educators across the country are reluctant about going back to work, even as remote learning continues to take a toll on students = mentally, physically and emotionally.

Despite the hesitation, CDC Director Dr. Robert Redfield has said that for K-12 students, school is one of the safest places they can be amidst the pandemic. Similarly, Dr. Anthony Fauci has urged schools to reopen or stay open – following appropriate safety protocols – because they are considered a low-risk environment, BizPacReview reports.

“K through 12 schools can operate with face-to-face learning, and they can do it safely and responsibly,” Redfield said. “The infections that we’ve identified in schools, when they’ve been evaluated, were not acquired in schools. They were actually acquired in the community and in the household,” he added.

Teachers’ unions are among the Democrats biggest supporters. Rather than advocate for schools to remain closed citing health concerns – or put education first – the left strikes again by pushing a ridiculous political agenda.

The claim makes little sense. How is wanting children to return to school racist, sexist or misogynistic?

If anything, it would be more accurate to say keeping schools closed is racist and misogynistic because those struggling the most with closures are women – many of whom have been forced to quit their jobs to care for their children – and inner-city minority families that rely on the public education system.

    Fact is, I wouldn’t send my child or grand child back to public school. They unintentually taught us all how to de-brainwash our children. How to do without the system. We are perfectly capable to teach our own children. And so much more than the system ever could! I would NOT ever send a child of mine back to that. Learning gay sex, dos and don’ts. Learning about how socialism and the new world order is where we are. Learning that free government monies are the new norm. No. Hate and looting is not the new norm.

Employees Completely Helpless as Shoplifters Walk Out With Thousands Worth of Goods at Oregon Lowes




Social media Twitter account @libsoftiktok which states in the bio it posts “all things insane & hypocritical” posted a one-minute video showing “2 people walk out of an Oregon Lowe’s with carts of stolen merchandise. Employees look on and are unable to do anything.”

As the video plays, words highlighted red appear that read, “INCREDIBLE STATE OF OREGON, USA” and “IF YOU KNOW THESE PEOPLE, PLEASE ALERT THE POLICE IMMEDIATELY.” The video takes place at a Lowes store and epitomizes the sad times we are in.

Within the first eight seconds of the video, the two robbers, with filled carts, simply stroll out of the store as if they were paying customers. The Lowes employee asks the men “can you show me the receipts?” The young man appears to flash something while saying “right here.”

The female employee then says “no, I don’t think so” knowing the men did not pay for the items. The two thieves continue to walk the carts out of the store and a second, elderly Lowes employee attempts to stop the men, shouting “hey” as he follows them.

The female employee stops the elderly male employee from pursuing the robbers saying, “it’s not worth it.” As the robbers have successfully exited the store, into the parking lot, the male recording the video then asks the employees, “doesn’t it suck you guys can’t do anything? I mean I think it’s just amazing.”

The video then shows the men in the parking lot throwing the stolen items into a red Subaru where it appears others were waiting to help. A voice can be heard explaining that the guys are packing the car with stolen goods, and another man explains it happens “every day.”

“Dude that’s thousands of dollars – I’m an electrician, bro” the videographer explains of the sheer amount of goods being stolen. The thieves close the back door and the videographer zooms in to the back of the car to show the “license tag” before the car speeds away. The red highlighted words “IF YOU KNOW THESE PEOPLE, PLEASE ALERT THE POLICE IMMEDIATELY” remained on the video the whole time.
