Yikes! There is no telling what will set off the granola-and-patchouli crowd these days. Many times leftists will simply exaggerate and twist words to put conservatives on the defensive. However, what they’re doing to state Rep. Mark Brody is out-and-out LYING.
Here is what Brody wrote on Facebook:
Union County teachers choose to inconvenience near 30,000 parents in order to pressure the General Assembly to increase their pay!
The hypocrisy is that they say they are supporting the students. One less day of instruction does not help students. Teaching our children that it is OK to not show up for work does not set a good example. And, if you can make the assumption that teachers have achieved a level of education where they can make well thought out decisions, why is it that they cannot figure out that in about 3 weeks the school year will be over and the legislature will still be in session? Strange but, unfortunately, they cannot make a simple connection – protest without inconveniencing anyone. ( Inconveniencing people is a main tactic of the Labor Union movement)
Let’s call this what it is, Teacher Union thugs want to control the education process! I am speaking up because I don’t want Union County schools, and for that matter all NC school systems, to turn into Chicago. Let the Union thugs get their way now and we are half way there.
I will end this by saying I strongly support those teachers who do the right thing, in the right way and at the right time. Your biggest legislative support comes from the Republican State legislature. Your greatest enemy for the causes you strive for is the Teacher Union, your incompetent and/or spineless local administrations and, the biggest problem of them all, the NC Department of Public Instruction.
The Democrats, over decades of self serving administrations, have built walls around these groups to insulate them from Republican legislatures who want to actually do the things that will make education teacher friendly and student effective.
A heartfelt THANK YOU to all those teachers who continue to fight for the cause of quality education, who proudly display a role model example that shows our children there is a right way to do and accomplish things, will stand up to the bullies and self serving thugs of the Teachers Union and believe in showing up for work.
Remember, Chicago is just a Democrat controlled legislature away.
Got that? Good. Now, here is how the leftists reacted to what Brody had to say:
Really? I don’t see anything even close to that in Brody’s post. Somebody needs to get with “Pretty Boy” Jackson and ask (1) if he’s seeing something we can’t or (2) if he’s just LYING.
And let’s not forget Senator Dan Blue, who rivals The Round Rev and Jesse Jackson when it comes to race-pimping:
Again, WHERE did Brody do THAT?
Oh, and don’t you just love how they and their allies in the driveby media put up the pics of the harmless-looking white suburbanites to “make” their case? It’s shades of The Round Rev and Moral Monday — sticking the poor little old ladies out front to get arrested while the SEIU thugs and the Soros money stay in the shadows.
