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.

BLM DC Makes Vile Comment about Officers Called ‘Heroes’ When Shot in the Line of Duty

A suspect is still at large after opening fire on police officers in Northwest D.C. Sunday night. One officer was shot, and fortunately suffered non-life-threatening injuries and was released from the hospital after being treated.

Black Lives Matter took the opportunity to make vicious remarks about cops who are targeted. The D.C. Police Department gave a press conference detailing the situation that had occurred and applauded the police department for “courageously” chasing the suspect before he was able to evade police.

The Police Chief asked for citizens to avoid the area where the suspect was last seen and encouraged the public to reach out to their department with any information that could be helpful to the case.

Black Lives Matter took the opportunity to promote its #StopMPD campaign and warn against “copaganda.” Black Lives Matter DC’s official Twitter account posted:

“This is the point we’ve been making for months, Look at the reaction and coverage tonight. Tearjerker press conferences and proclamations of heroes coming soon. Imagine if people knew these folks’ names. Being Black in DC is more dangerous than any job.”

In a follow-up tweet, the account stated “This isn’t to say these scenarios represent what happened tonight, but it does explain our skepticism, interest in details, and highlights the difference in how people talk and act when an officer is hurt vs when they hurt a Black person. No one asks what the cop did wrong.”

Another Victim Thrown on NYC Subway Tracks, 62-Year-Old Man Suffered Lacerated Leg

NYC Subway

Just over a week ago, 40-year-old Asian American Michelle Alyssa Go was pushed to her death in front of a train on the subway tracks of New York City’s Times Square. Another individual was shoved onto the tracks on Sunday.

New York Police Department said both attacks were unprovoked and called upon leadership officials to do more to protect the city’s citizens. Sunday’s victim was a 62-year-old man whose name has not been publicly released.

He was pushed onto the tracks in Lower Manhattan’s southbound train at the Fulton Street subway station. He sustained a leg laceration and police said there have not yet been any arrests in connection with the incident.

Go’s attacker was identified as Martial Simon, a 61-year-old homeless man with a history of violence and mental health issues. He was charged with second-degree murder. The New York Times reported that shortly before Go’s death, another woman saw him acting suspiciously and later told police she was afraid he was going to push her onto the tracks.

Subway attacks are the latest increase of issues that face Democrat New York Mayor Eric Adams. Adams has pledged to fight crime but has already implemented plans to minimize punishments for criminals in an effort to keep young men, particularly of color, out of prison.

Despite overall subway riding being down since the pandemic, the subway system has seen an increase in assaults last year. “According to the NYPD, 461 felony assaults were reported on the subway system in 2021, of which 30 involved a person being pushed onto the subway tracks. That’s an increase from the year before when there were 26 reported subway-pushing incidents” reports The Washington Post.

New York’s liberal leadership have been vocal supporters of the defund the police movement and saw the city turn to the wild west with protestors taking over the city during the Black Lives Matter movement shortly after George Floyd’s death. Rising crime and gun violence have plagued the city.
