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.

    “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?

Sen. Paul Announces He Is Making ‘Criminal Referral’ To DOJ For Fauci ‘Lying To Congress’

Published

Anthony Fauci

During an interview with Fox News’s Sean Hannity on Tuesday night, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) said he would be referring Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the U.S. National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), to the Department of Justice for a criminal investigation over Fauci allegedly lying to Congress.

“You kicked off your questioning of Dr. Fauci emphasizing federal law makes lying to Congress a felony punishable by up to five years in prison,” Hannity said. “Is it your belief based on the evidence, senator, that he lied before Congress and broke the law?”

“Yes, and I will be sending a letter to the Department of Justice asking for a criminal referral because he has lied to Congress,” Paul answered.


Paul’s announcement comes after he had a heated exchange with Fauci during a Senate hearing on Tuesday when Paul suggested Fauci lied about whether the National Institutes of Health-funded gain-of-function research in the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

“On your last trip to our committee on May 11, you stated that the NIH has not ever and does not now fund gain-of-function research in the Wuhan Institute of Virology,” Paul said to Fauci. He then referenced a paper by Dr. Shi Zhengli of the Wuhan Virology Lab, which claimed the NIH did fund her research into SARS-related coronaviruses and asked Fauci if he would like to retract his previous statements.

“Senator Paul, I have never lied before the Congress, and I do not retract that statement,” Fauci responded. “This paper that you are referring was judged by qualified staff up and down the chain as not being gain-of-function.”

Paul interjected, “You take an animal virus and you increase transmissibility to human, you’re saying that is not gain of function?”

“That is correct,” Fauci angrily replied. “Senator Paul, you do not know what you are talking about, quite frankly, and I want to say that officially. You do not know what you are talking about!”

MSNBC Host Blames Trump, Cable News for COVID Deaths, Compares Unvaccinated to Cult Mass Suicides

Published

on

MSNBC’s leftist commentator Mika Brzezinski may have forgotten her beloved Joe Biden now holds the office of President of the United States, and has since January. She is vehemently blaming former President Trump for the current coronavirus situation.

People are dying because of Donald Trump and his “evil allies on cable news” , says Brzezinski. While co-hosting Monday morning’s Morning Joe Brzezinski reacted to a statement Trump released Sunday saying the Biden administration’s COVID-19 vaccine rollout is “not doing well at all.”

“He’s way behind schedule and people are refusing to take the Vaccine because they don’t trust his Administration, they don’t trust the Election results, and they certainly don’t trust the Fake News, which is refusing to tell the Truth” Trump’s statement added.

Deflecting and defending, Brzezinski goes on an insane tirade saying Trump is “twisting it again.” “Let’s just look at the facts, look at the hospital records, look at the people who are still dying. The U.S. surgeon general says 99 percent of those people who are dying don’t have vaccines. They all could be preventable deaths, and all of the heartbreaking stories of the husbands or wives being put on ventilators and dying and in the last moments, their last breaths of life, they regret that they listened to politicians or cable news hosts, who followed their dangerous, demented advice instead of listening to their doctor.”

First of all, there is no more unethical thing for a so-called news organization or host to do than to tell viewers their loved ones’ deaths were “preventable.” Brzezinski just insulted those for not “listening to their doctor” yet calls the deaths preventable despite knowing anything about the details or patient health history. That, dear Brzezinski, is not listening to “the science.”

Second, she proved Trump’s point. Trump said not enough people are vaccinated because of Biden’s slow rollout and inability to comfort the American people on its safety and efficacy. He is not telling people not to get vaccinated as Brzezinski insinuates.

Brzezinski claims citizens are listening to “demented advice” from politicians and cable news hosts, while she, a cable news host, gives the most demented analysis of all, comparing Trump supporters to the mass suicides of cults.

“We’ve been saying that those people following Donald Trump off a cliff were living as if it was like a cult. Let’s be clear about this. This is not cult-like behavior, this is not like a cult- this is now how people behave when they are in a cult” said Brzezinski. Despite saying the word “cult” over and over, it’s impossible to understand what she is actually trying to say.

The host continued to rant, “If you want to know why, it’s because they are, in fact, living in a cult, that’s the definition of one and it’s killing them. Whether you’re talking about David Koresh and Waco or the Jonestown mass suicides or Donald Trump’s lies about COVID, people died and people are dying, and they are dying because Donald Trump and his evil allies on cable news and social media and on Capitol Hill.”
