Disgusting… Chicago Teachers Union Holds Protest Outside 9-11 Memorial

The Chicago Teachers Union protested outside a 9-11 Memorial event today in Chicago.

WLS reported:

Dozens of striking Chicago teachers are protesting outside a Sept. 11 memorial event where Gov. Pat Quinn is speaking.

The Chicago Democrat hasn’t weighed in on the walkout, which entered its second day on Tuesday.

As he headed into the event, Quinn walked through the crowd, which sang “Amazing Grace” and held American flags. He said “Good luck.”

The teachers marched over from nearby Curie Metro High School on the city’s southwest side.

More… On the first day of its strike, the Chicago Teachers Union was joined by a supportive collection of political radicals, including some proudly wearing Che Guevara t-shirts and others hoisting anarchist flags.

    We have met the enemy. .the fifth column. . .

    What are we waiting for?

    Because the death of three thousand Americans is nothing compared to the demands of the ill educated, propagandist mob who call themselves teachers.
    Let’s get our priorities straight here.

    “…Quinn walked through the crowd, which sang “Amazing Grace” and held American flags…”

    Really? I don’t even see ONE American flag in that group.

    Wait till you see the picture that appeared on my Facebook page Jim Hoft – emailed it to you a few minutes ago. Absolutely ASTOUNDING – almost enough to make me cry.

    If they refuse to respect the memory of 9-11 then we do not respect them. . .

    If I were a Chicago Parent, I would want my child taught by knowledgable, intelligent and PATRIOTIC teachers. . .

    We hear that some are forgetting 911 but when teachers do, Teachers they are NOT.

    THANK YOU Romney and Ryan for weighing in on the side of the students ! Keep it up and win by 7%.

  • Redwine

    Romney and Ryan just called Comrade Barrry’s bluff. (Something I was hoping they’d do.) Rush reported that they made a statement siding with Rahmbo against the unions – Barry’s shakedown gang.

    Chicago’s striking public school teachers earn $74,839 per year, and 39% of them send their own children to private schools http://tinyurl.com/9e9qaot

    Government unions will destroy the finances of every State and municipality in this country unless they are stopped.
    Chicago Teachers Vote to Strike; 350,000 Kids Affected; 16% Raise Over 4 Years Not Good Enough; Strike of Choice; Roadblock to Reform
    The average teacher in Chicago makes $76,000 a year for nine months of work. They were offered 16% salary increase spread over four years. Given the system has a $665 million deficit this year and a bigger one next year, I am wondering why there should be a raise at all.

    Strike of Choice

    Every strike is a strike of choice. Moreover, given projected budget deficits and with pension plans even deeper in the hole, the 16% raise offer was actually far too generous.

    The ideal approach by mayor Rahm Emanuel would look something like this.

    Immediately fire all 25,000 teachers, disband the union, and kill defined benefit pension plans
    Offer teachers their jobs back with a zero percent pay raise with three days to decide
    For each day beyond three, the city would reduce its offer to teachers by $2,000 a day
    Offer generous relocation expenses to those willing to come to Chicago to teach
    Offer substitute teachers full-time jobs

    It is time to break the back of the insidious grip public unions have on the state of Illinois. There is no better place than Chicago to start.


  • Clafoutis

    Selfish, insensitive, greedy, and ignorant Unionistas have no business teaching our children.

    Fire them all.

    Progs don’t respect anyone except their idols. If you want to be upset on the this notable day, google AZ 9 11 memorial to read the discusting anti US/war statements that were emblazoned on aluminum monument. Big Sis was the governor of AZ at the time and the appointed memorial committee of academics and intellectuals came up with some blame the US beauties.
