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?

Oregon Schools ‘Staffing Crisis’ So Bad State Temporarily Allowing Substitute Teachers Without Degrees

Published

Liberal policies and mandates surrounding the coronavirus pandemic for over a year and a half have resulted in a mass labor shortage across a plethora of industries. Most recently with the vaccine mandates, individuals are either quitting or being forced into a leave of absence. Education is among the affected fields, leaving children without teachers.

In Oregon, officials said the “extraordinary shortage” of substitute teachers is also so bad, they have been forced to relinquish standards. The Oregon Teacher Standards and Practices Commission announced it will temporarily be dropping the requirement for teachers to, well, be licensed to teach.

CNN reports:

“The temporary rule, which is set to expire March 31, allows substitute teacher applicants without a bachelor’s degree to be sponsored by a school district, which would also provide them with enhanced support administrative supervision, according to a joint statement from Dr. Anthony Rosilez, the commission’s executive director, and Erika Bare, the commission chair.”

In December of 2019, the state had 8,290 licensed substitute teachers. By September 18, 2021, the number was down to almost half at 4,738. The temporary administrative order says without more teachers, classes will be “combined to unacceptable levels or not offered at all, inflicting irreparable harm on schoolchildren.”

In the joint statement from Rosilez and Bare, they explained the reason behind the state’s conundrum: “while the data we have at this point is primarily anecdotal, the COVID pandemic has been a primary factor in the reduced supply.”

Elizabeth Thiel, president of the Portland Association of Teachers says Oregon is experiencing a “staffing crisis” exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic. “It’s not just substitutes that we don’t have enough of. It’s classroom teachers, it’s administrators and custodians and bus drivers and education assistants and nutrition workers and paraprofessionals” added Thiel. “Every job type we have in our schools, we’re short.”

Rep. Tlaib Caught on Video Admitting She is Only Wearing a Mask Because of ‘Republican Tracker’ Filming Her

Rashida Tlaib

Democrat and member of the “Squad” Representative Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) was filmed at an event explaining that she was only wearing a mask for one reason. It was not for safety, not for fear of spreading COVID-19 to the vulnerable and weak, not for fear of getting a variant herself, and not for “stopping the spread.” No. It was only because a “Republican tracker” was in her presence.

At an event in Detroit, Tlaib can be seen among a group outside, and one gentleman, who was not wearing a mask, thought Tlaib was upset that he was not masked. “Oh, my bad. Sorry” the man said.

Quickly explaining herself and making sure there was zero confusion as to her position, she quickly comforted the man saying, “oh no, not you.” She then pulls down her mask to further explain, “I was only doing it because I got a Republican, uh, tracker following me” as she appeared to be pointing in the direction of the “tracker.”

She then popped her mask back on and turned to walk away. National Review reports: “Tlaib was exiting an event on Monday with Housing and Urban Development secretary Marcia Fudge, who visited housing developments in Detroit while touting the Biden administration’s proposed $3.5 trillion reconciliation bill.” The video was obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.

This summer Tlaib chastised Republican Senator Rand Paul for voicing resistance to some Centers for Disease Control and Prevention measures including mask-wearing mandates. The same day, video surfaced of Tlaib partying at an indoor wedding maskless.

Tlaib is one of many Democrats who have acted in complete hypocrisy to their own mandates. San Francisco mayor London Breed was filmed at a crowded indoor bar listening to music where no one was wearing masks. She justified her violation by stating she wanted to dance and “I was feeling the spirit.”
