“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.
