“Oppose Common Core? This Teachers Union President Wants To ‘Punch You In The Face'”

I’m game. But here’s the thing, Michael. You’d better bring a bunch of your “brothers and sisters” with you. Or things aren’t going to end well.

One more thing: you’re whole dramatic spiel about how you’re the teachers, you’re the professionals, etc., is undercut by one simple truth: you are part of a unionized movement that seeks, on the main, to reward and protect the mediocre, to prevent competition, and which desires to hold a monopoly over the education of our children.

That’s going to change.

If you don’t like it, get the hell out of the profession. Because my children are mine. And when you try to take something that’s mine, I’m going to grab it out of your cold, twisted, sick hands and say it is mine. You do not take what is mine. And I’m going to punch you in the face and push you in the dirt. Because I’m the parent. And I don’t want your lousy, one-size-fits-all tools used to turn my kids into mush-brained little morons who may one day grow up hating their country and believing themselves guilty of poisoning the earth with their very exhalation.

I don’t want them shaped into PC-belching adepts of moral equivalency — unthinking relativists filled with phony and unearned “esteem” who believe just because they have an opinion, it deserves the same respect as the opinions of those who are demonstrably better informed.

I want them to learn about the exceptionalism they were fortunate enough to have been born into, and I want them to appreciate the blessings of liberty.

Which means I don’t want them answerable to any group of unionized assholes so insecure about their own abilities that the only way they can function is without competition, which frees them up to bully, to act as petty tyrants and demagogues — all without fear of ever losing their automatic pay bumps and, of course, their jobs.

So yeah, tough guy. Go right on ahead and come after those of us who don’t wish to answer to the likes of you. We’re all around you. See how well it works out once the canned applause dies down and you’re left to your own devices.

  1. I’ve been punched in the face, by guys who thought they were quick enough to sucker-punch me and end the fight before it started.

    Heh heh heh.

    Ahhh, good times.

  2. Percute me et faciem meam vos legisperitum pertractabimus.

  3. My lawyer would have to settle for subpoenaing the cellphone camera footage for my trial.

  4. That was one fine rant. Summed up the thing rather neatly, leaving anyone with the common sense God gave a goose nothing to add.

    Generally speaking, these people (Arne Duncan and crew, along with a multitude of happily union teachers) want authority over all surviving non-viable tissue masses. Those of you foolish enough to bring one to term need help. It’s simple (fascist)logic.

  5. And we have yet another in a series of about a billion reasons why my kids attend –gasp!–a parochial school. Last night at Freshmen Orientation for the youngest, the Principal said, “You’ve heard about Common Core? Yeah, well, not in this school. Next topic.”

    He was interrupted by a standing ovation.

  6. Union thugs are a dime a dozen. Scott Walker whipped a state full of ‘em, without breaking a sweat.

  7. Indeed. “Go to bed, old man! It’s not the 1930s any longer.”

  8. ole pharrell don’t do many aztecs in his vid

  9. Oh Man, I am so memorizing this rant and internalizing it.

    Wait! I don’t have any kids.

    And I have a glass jaw.

    So. I’ll internalize it anyway. In fact, I already did. Man, I love it when you get this way. My favorite part is where you go PC-belching adepts of moral equivalency — unthinking relativists filled with phony and unearned “esteem” , um, with crap opinions that are not equal to, um, uh, opinions that are better informed.

  10. Comments disabled. Know why? Douchebag cannot take dissension, that’s why. They’ll do all the talking and none of the listening. And that’s why they’ll have their @sses handed them.

    He’s all about not backing down from a fight while not even engaging in dialogue. So fuck him POW right in the butt.

  11. - bour3, when have you ever known a Prog to engage in honest debate?

    – Meanwhile ILeftIraqfortheTerrorists is getting sucked into the maw of the ISIS war like a veritable tar baby. If you listen carefully you can almost hear the happy lilt of “Zipi-dee-doodah” from Song of the South.

    – The shrieking, hair rending, and pearl clutching is shifting into high gear in the crystal star chambers of the Left. Suicides should begin ramping up soon.

  12. Dead solid perfect, Jeff.

    Those who can, do
    Those who can’t, bully

  13. New-old thugs, aligned union thugs, line o’ thugs.

    Thug-life, on the rise, with a bullet.

  14. - The articles on Obazma’s war actions are drawing comments in the less than 200 level. Obviously none of the useful idiots want to even read what morons they’ve been and the disasters their policies have wrought. Gone are the heady days of 20,000+ entries extolling the virtues of Progressivism and Bumblefuck. The Left is rapidly descending into the dustbin of history.

  15. he’s so shiny

  16. - One of life’s great mysteries solved. No, not Big foot, Nessie, or UFO’s but almost as elusive.

  17. “Nobody has the sense about why in some cases and not in others,” said James B. Steinberg, a former deputy secretary of state under Mr. Obama and now dean of the Maxwell School at Syracuse University. “His last news conference just leaves you scratching your head. Yeah, we can’t do everything. But what matters to us?”

    – Well, if its campaign effective, then it matters to jug ears, or if he thinks it will shrink or expand his base, otherwise “What dead innocents“?

    – The kicker here is notice where the article is from. I love the smell of burning, exploding Prog heads anytime of the day.

  18. You have read 5 of 10 free articles this month.

    Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha *slaps knee* Ha ha ha ha ha, snort … aaaaaah.

    All your articles are belong to us, Bitches.

  19. Jeff, Jeff, Jeff. You need to get over the idea that your kids are yours. Melissa Harris-Perry is the wave of the future. Your kids are community property. You need to understand that, or you’ll be made to.

  20. Union thugs are a dime a dozen. Scott Walker whipped a state full of ‘em, without breaking a sweat.

    But the State of Wisconsin is still sponsoring “White Privilege” conferences for K-12 educators, and the University of Wisconsin is still practicing affirmative action and recommending “equitable” racial distribution of grades.

    So tell me, other than pleasing the Chamber of Commerce types, what has Walker really accomplished? He’s just facilitating the indoctrination of the young in a more cost-effective manner.

  21. Those who can, do
    Those who can’t, bully

    So tell me, other than pleasing the Chamber of Commerce types, what has Walker really accomplished? He’s just facilitating the indoctrination of the young in a more cost-effective manner.

    Oh.

    To use the schoolyard analogy yet again, it is a fact of life that the class bully will not leave a victim in peace because he is enthralled with the feeling of power over others. The bully will not stop because he has no incentive. Protesting only encourages him. Using the system as a shield only amuses him. Logic and reason only anger him. Punching the bully in the teeth is the only incentive he will respect. If you show that you can disrupt a tyrant’s abuse of power anytime you wish, if you show that you can hurt him back, only then will he take you seriously.

    He showed us how to find the bully’s teeth. We’ll just have to keep swinging, until they cover the sidewalks..

  22. Grown-ups don’t expect politicians to do everything. Not even their own.

  23. Our Commander-in-Chief is belatedly learning a lesson that every infantryman knows his first year. You don’t “end” wars; you win them or you lose them.

    Thanks to our valiant armed forces and the Petraeus/Bush surge, we defeated the militants in Iraq and were ready for a gradual, organized hand-off to the newly elected civilian government.

    But President Obama, through political calculation or diplomatic ineptness, failed to secure a simple Status of Forces Agreement with Prime Minister Maliki. This led to an abrupt removal of American troops and American influence on the fledgling state. As expected, the Iraq security vacuum was filled soon enough.

    Radicals on every side began to assert themselves and ultimately tore apart coalitions the allies painfully built up over years. Obama’s haphazard policy choices have left us with an infighting, Iran-backed political class in Baghdad, an embattled Kurdish minority in the north, and the Islamic State rolling over both.

    Last night, Obama decided to drop provisions to starving Yazidis atop Mount Sinjar and appears to be bombing IS positions here and there. Anything to get the image of children dying of thirst off television and social media.

    The Obama Doctrine is to ignore problems until they metastasize into vast international crises, then react with an ineffective spasm of concern. In this, the President has been consistent, be it Libya, Egypt, Boko Haram or Ukraine. The truly serious situations get a Twitter hashtag.

    …..More here.

  24. somebody spit-shined that man’s head to a glorious refractiveness

    if them isis pipples need them a disco ball this guy should be their go-to i think

  25. Once upon a time, there was a great country. How great, you ask? A country that was so great, it fought tooth and nail to bring home three astronauts who were stranded in space aboard the ill-fated Apollo 13. And the country succeeded.

    And I once lived in that country.

    Not any more.

    I now live in a country where honor is merely a word in a dictionary. (Yeah, Jesse, I’m looking at you) A country who’s leaders put politics ahead of doing what is right. A country that twice elected someone with less accomplishment than Dwayne Elizondo Mountain Dew Herbert Camacho.

    I once lived in a country that had a public education system that produced the people who brought back the astronauts of Apollo 13. That country now has a thug pushing an indoctrination program thinly disguised as “curriculum.”

    I also had a country that followed true human drama: “One small step for man, one giant step for mankind.” Now, the country follows the faux drama of faux celebrity. (Thanks Jackie O, Diana, Charles and MBM)

    Now, I have a country in which I reside, but, I no longer have a country.

  26. With apologies to Shelby Foote…

    Before The Civil War, people said, ‘The United States are…’.

    After The War, people said, ‘The United States is…’.

    Now, in the Post-Constitutional Era, we have to say, ‘The United States was…’.

    Wisconsin Teachers Unions Weakened, Demoralized

    Also smaller and poorer.

  29. Waaay OT..

    I don’t think Krispy Kreme would’ve favorited this if they’d known the back story? )

  30. I’m pretty sure that ChicagoRefugee would have been up in the middle of the night in June 1944 saying “Eisenhower may have gained a foothold in Normandy, but the Nazis are still in control of the whole of Europe. So tell me, what has Ike really accomplished?”

    We live in a system where it’s impossible to completely overturn the political order overnight. On the whole, this is a very good thing.

  31. Jeff, Jeff, Jeff. You need to get over the idea that your kids are yours. Melissa Harris-Perry is the wave of the future. Your kids are community property. You need to understand that, or you’ll be made to.

    The government can have my kids after they pry them from my cold, dead . . .

    you get the idea.

    I recognize that you were being sarcastic, but somebody needs to stand up to that kind of bullshit.
