Teachers Union President: DeSantis Campaign Merchandise Will Cause ‘Millions’ Of Deaths

Published

Randi Weingarten

American Federation of Teachers (AFT) President Randi Weingarten claimed on Wednesday that Florida Governor Ron DeSantis’s merchandise was going to result in the deaths of “millions of Floridians.”

DeSantis’s campaign released merchandise with the phrase “Don’t Fauci My Florida,” a reference to Dr. Anthony Fauci’s pattern of advocating for overly restrictive COVID-19 policies.

“Disgusting. Millions of Floridians are going to die for Ron DeSantis’ ignorance and he’s choosing to profit from it,” Weingarten claimed. “He doesn’t care about Floridians; he cares about furthering his own cruel agenda.”

With the population of Florida being around 20 million people, there would only be about 50,000 deaths if all Floridians were infected with COVID-19, according to the infection fatality rate estimated in a 2021 study from Stanford University. The alarmism from Weingarten that “millions” would die prompted backlash, as there is no evidence wearing a t-shirt, would cause anyone to die.

“Florida’s COVID death rate is lower than the national average, and unlike the Governor of New York, we don’t fudge the numbers. Meanwhile, Randi Weingarten ruined the education of millions of kids by keeping them out of school for more than a year based on a conspiracy theory,” one user wrote on Twitter.


“This tweet is functionally a max-out donation to DeSantis. Thank you, madam president,” another user wrote.

    As a retired teacher I am TOTALLY disgusted with Randi Weingarten and her despicable political comments trying to injure our great Governor. Stay out of Florida politics as you continue to ruin schools in New York Chicago and California

    “Under Penalty of Death”

    The Marxist agenda has finally been exposed as the perverted cudgel it is and the result of non compliance is death.

    With the “Covid-demic”, and not adhering to central planning edicts, just feeling bad, or sickly, isn’t what will happen, you’ll just die a horrible death, and thousands will perish unnecessarily.

    Communism at it’s finest.

    The Left is obviously terrified of De Santis. They can’t stop trying to cancel him. Their posturing is so awkwardly obvious. This woman shouldn’t be let within 50 feet of a school let alone make policy for teachers.

    I wish Leo would run for a seat in the House.
    It would be great to see him straighten out the Congressional Black Congress or even better, dismantle it.
    When they will not accept a black republican in their ranks, it’s time for them to go.

    Thank God my mother is no longer here. She was a retired teacher. I was a teacher too not children but adults. This is just so sad. Let people teach who want to teach. Health care we’re front line with the Chinese virus. Yes I said it. Chinese Virus. The only reason the teachers union is able to get away with their crap because they give money to the Democratic Party. So they get a pass. Congress doesn’t send their kids to public school They do not care about the Americans. I could go on and on. I am sure you have heard it all.

    President of the teachers union? Breaking News: slogan kills millions, “words” cause virus to supercede all previous mortality rates. She is an oxy-moron and a regular one as well.

    This woman is an educator? How she so eloquently exposes her ignorance. So the phrase taken in full context “Millions of Floridians will die” equate to at least 2 million + deaths (millions=plural). In a state of 20 million that is a minimum of 10% of the population succumbing to the CCP virus. Where does this idiot get her scientific data? Bizarro Fauci University?

Kamala Harris

On Tuesday, the White House announced that Vice President Kamala Harris has tested positive for COVID-19 and is not currently showing symptoms.

“Today, Vice President Harris tested positive for COVID-19 on rapid and PCR tests,” said Kirsten Allen, press secretary to the vice president. “She has exhibited no symptoms, will isolate and continue to work from the Vice President’s residence. She has not been a close contact to the President or First Lady due to their respective recent travel schedules. She will follow CDC guidelines and the advice of her physicians. The Vice President will return to the White House when she tests negative.”

Harris wrote on Twitter that she was going to continue to isolate and is showing no symptoms.

“Today I tested positive for COVID-19. I have no symptoms, and I will continue to isolate and follow CDC guidelines. I’m grateful to be both vaccinated and boosted,” Harris tweeted.

Harris last reportedly saw President Biden at the Easter Egg Roll on April 18 before leaving for California, which she returned from on April 25.

The vice president has been vaccinated against COVID-19 and has received two booster shots, receiving the second booster on April 1.

“Yesterday I received my second COVID-19 booster shot,” Harris tweeted on April 2. “We know that getting vaccinated is the best form of protection from this virus and boosters are critical in providing an additional level of protection. If you haven’t received your first booster—do it today.”

At Least 3 US Airlines Will Restore Flight Privileges To Some Mask Violators

Published

on

At least three major U.S. airlines – Delta Air Lines, United Airlines and American Airlines – have now said they will allow some passengers who were banned from their planes over mask violations to have their flight privileges restored – determined on a case-by-case basis.

On Wednesday, Delta released a statement saying, “At Delta, nothing is more important than the safety and security of our customers and our people. With masks now optional, Delta will restore flight privileges for customers on the mask non-compliance no-fly list only after each case is reviewed and each customer demonstrates an understanding of their expected behavior when flying with us.”

“Any further disregard for the policies that keep us all safe will result in placement on Delta’s permanent no-fly list. Customers who demonstrated egregious behavior and are already on the permanent no-fly list remain barred from flying with Delta,” the statement added.

United Airlines similarly announced it will allow passengers it banned for not following mask rules to be allowed to fly again.

“On a case-by-case basis, we will allow some customers who were previously banned for failing to comply with mask-related rules to fly United again — after ensuring their commitment to follow all crewmember instructions on board,” United Airlines said in a statement.

American Airlines will also allow passengers banned for violating mask rules “to resume travel at some point in time,” according to the company’s chief government affairs officer, Nate Gatten.

“In cases where an incident may have started with face mask noncompliance and escalated into anything involving something more serious, or certainly an assault on one of our key members or customers, those passengers are going to remain on our permanent internal refuse list and will never be allowed to travel with us again,” Gatten said.
