Crowd Laughs, Applauds Chicago
Teachers Union President After She
Jokes About Beheading The Rich

Mediaite, by Noah Rothman

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/8/2013 9:42:35 AM

Controversy erupted at the Illinois Labor History Society’s “Salute to Labor’s Historic Heroes from the History Makers of Today” conference when Karen Lewis, president of the Chicago Teachers Union, drew applause and laughs for suggesting that a past generation of labor leaders preferred to resolve disputes with murder. Lewis drew laughs when she talked about beheading the rich as a preferred method of conflict resolution for disgruntled labor organizers of a bygone era. (Snip) “At this very moment I still believe there is one party in this country – that is, the party of money, with two

Comments:
Once again I say, can you imagine if a Republican had said this about a union member? These people are sick and reprehensible. She is the perfect example of the gross abuse of free speech.

She was funnier when she was ridiculing Arne Duncan for having a speech impediment.

Why can´t Karen Lewis, and all the hot chicks, Roseanne, Whoopi, et al, be happy with just being so Fn hot?

But, NOOOOO they have to try to be funny, too!

Reminds me of a movie called the four hundred blows. Step by step the divide deepens. More people should read about the stages of conflict and think before they speak. In a perfect world I wish malace towards no one.

Read the comments that follow the article! Here´s one typical comment "We as Educators will not allow our children to be trained as trick-monkeys for corporate wealth and power growth." These far left educators are beyond sick and they are teaching "our children"? No wonder the country is so divided. What would this country be like if we had no corporations? We would be a third world seas pool.

That Chicago teachers are represented by someone like this explains a lot. No wonder the city is having the problems it has. This woman doesn´t even know what the teachers are there for! It is very likely that many of those she represents don´t know what their purpose is either.

Teaching and news reporting have not always been accorded the dignity and status of professions. Somehow humanity survived and accomplished great things long before schools of education and journalism made their appearance. The latter seem principally to serve as indoctrination centers and foci of ideological infection. I am not aware of any good evidence they add value or quality or skill to their nominal purpose, e.g. how to educate students or report the news. Combined with powerful unions, schools of education have unleashed a nightmare on the nation that may prove our undoing. This woman and her cheering are one example.

This is the same Karen Lewis who bragged about staying stoned her entire time at college- where she was GIVEN a spot rather than earned one.

What a pig! Literally, figuratively... How sick is it that this miserable excuse for a human actually represents Chicago teachers? No wonder 80% of Chicago children in 8th grade are not proficient in reading or math for their grade level. Does anyone wonder why Chicago keeps electing corrupt democrap officials and sent us the most corrupt president ever?

Not only is she a pig, she is ignorant to boot. Does she realize in the grand scope of the earth, she is a rich pig herself? She lives like the "filthy rich" pig she is by having more food and wealth than billions of people on the face of the earth.

Sorry to the world´s pigs for the comparison. It´s the only word I wouldn´t get banned for calling her.

1. Ah, the sweet fragrance of "the new civility."

2. Uglier on the outside or the inside?

3. About "schools" and "educators": in big city gov´t schools, only half the employees are classroom teachers. In charter schools, it´s about 80%. Among big city gov´t school "teachers," roughly 40% or more send their kids to private schools. Come on, do you need to hear more? Really?

4. Gov´t schools are bureaucracies first and foremost. The purpose of any bureaucracy is not "results", not progress toward some stated goal, but self-preservation. And nothing "proves" the need for a given bureaucracy more than its growth. That helps explain two things about bureaucracies: a. they can never really "succeed" [for they are then unnecessary]; and b. "mission creep" is a great defense and "proof" of their "importance." "Mission creep" often falls into one of two categories [or tactics?]: a. make the definition of your field ever-wider, ever-fuzzier [note how just about everyone "has" or "is at risk from" diabetes]; and b. simply annex new territory [look at how various medical charities/associations have expanded their "areas of interest"].

Rust never sleeps. A good thing to keep in mind. Along with the salaries of the "big-shots" in these organizations....

She is typical of liberal thinking. She, of course, is paid by the union, which gets its money from the teachers, who are paid by the government, which gets its money from taxpayers. She is so far removed from where her salary comes from that she thinks that without rich people hogging their "unfair share" there would be enough to go around for everyone else. Where would we be if she really could get rid of rich people? She needs to read the last third of Atlas Shrugged for a clue.

The FBI is probing past legal work done by Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis, according to a report her Republican opponent’s campaign calls a “bombshell.” The Dallas Morning News reported Friday that documents “related to Sen. Wendy Davis’ work as a lawyer for the North Texas Tollway Authority are part of an FBI inquiry of the agency.” The news outlet said it’s unclear how much this investigation revolves around Davis, the Democratic nominee for governor. “It’s not clear whether Davis’ work for the tollway authority is a focus of the FBI or only part of the material collected in connection

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy. Instead of looking out for the majority of the country’s citizens, the US government is ruled by the interests of the rich and the powerful, they found. No great surprises there, then. But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined. Some 2,400 miles away from Washington, in Silicon Valley, Google is aggressively gaining power with little to keep it in check. It has cosied up to governments around the world so effectively that its chairman,

Steve Lynch is a Democratic Rep. from Massachusetts who doesn’t hesitate to buck the party line from a centrist point of view, and to speak openly about problems in the party and with party positions. Lynch ran for Senate to fill John Kerry’s seat, but lost in the primary to now-Senator Ed Markey. Lynch recently was interviewed by The Boston Herald about upcoming Obamacare problems and how devastating they will be for Democrats. That runs contrary to cut current news cycle Democratic spin that (allegedly) meeting sign up goals means electoral problems related to Obamacare are over. U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch, the

On April 7 a short video of the 60-year-old priest, from Oldcastle, County Meath, singing at a recent wedding ceremony went live.

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote. As vice president, Biden has been a loyal supporter of the Obama administration’s

Wayne Crews of the Competitive Enterprise Institute and Alexis de Tocqueville, author of the classic Democracy in America, were born in different times and places. But the French aristocrat and American think tanker have the measure of the federal behemoth in the age of Obama. Writing in 1835, Tocqueville eloquently predicted how it would function, while Crews today supplies in his annual compilation of federal rules and regulations, “10,000 Commandments,” the hard numbers that describe the behemoth´s contemporary reach and costs. It is always worthwhile to revisit de Tocqueville’s description of what he called the

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House.

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan
