Nice… Crowd Laughs as Chicago Teachers Union President Talks About Killing the Rich (Video)

What lovely people.
Chicago Teachers Union president Karen Lewis recently gave a speech at the Illinois Labor History Society’s “Salute to Labor’s Historic Heroes from the History Makers of Today.” She didn’t disappoint the crowd. At one point Lewis talked about killing the evil rich people.
EAG News has the transcript:

“…Do not think for a minute that the wealthy are ever going to allow you to legislate their riches away from them. Please understand that. However, we are in a moment where the wealth disparity in this country is very reminiscent of the robber baron ages. The labor leaders of that time, though, were ready to kill. They were. They were just – off with their heads. They were seriously talking about that.”

The crowd loved it.

    “Do not think for a minute that the wealthy are ever going to allow you to legislate their riches away from them. Please understand that.”

    1) But that won’t stop the Socialists from trying.
    2) The very fact that this was a statement that was NOT met with ridicule shows that they think that its perfectly ok to steal by legislation.

    Perhaps Ms. Lewis is under some misconception that her head will be spared in such an event…maybe she is right; even if only for the extra work need to cut through those extra chins.

    To see Communism at work you don’t need to go any further than the classroom.

    God. Not Godzilla again! She’ll have other fish to fry when she’s had 3 bypasses, her feet have turned black from diabetes, and needs a Hov-A-Round to go anywhere. Can’t say I’ll have a lot of sympathy for her when karma plays catchup.

    Without rich people, there are no jobs, no work, no base to tax to pay for all the slacking that goes on in gov.

    The alternative is the Karl Marx playbook, which is misery for all, equally.

    This is what leadership looks like in a bankrupt system. Never have paople paid so much for so little in return. Public schools are the pits.

    what a wast of humanity – kill the rich? – who would feed her fat face then?

  • TrickyDick

    I think it makes better sense to kill the obese. These people are using up planetary resources at at least twice the rate of normal humans.

    it is time.
    it is time for you to understand the French Revolution, 1789-1795.
    Ann Coulter devotes a section in her book, “Demonic” to dissecting it,
    you need to understand what really happened there,
    you need to understand its significance in world events ever since.

    you already know that nothing being done today is new,
    today’s Left is not doing anything nothing NEW,

    you should know that what is happening today goes back to the 1880s German School at Frankfurt picking up on Marx-Engels, through Bismarck into Bolshevism and Wilson and advanced into ‘normalcy’ via FDR, LBJ and Congressional liberals 1970s to today.

    what you may not be prepared for is their ultimate aim- and that’s why you need to go all the way back to the French Revolution.

    haven’t you ever asked yourself, “when will we be good enough for them to leave us alone?”, or,
    “when will we reach that desired Utopia? how will we know that we’ve reached that Marxist vision of the perfect society? what will it look like? what will we be like?”

    Get Ready. these folks see the mountaintop and they’re running for it. Do you know how Mt. Everest is climbed? The Left has been climbing the mountain for 140-some years and now they see the summit. now, the weather is clear and they’re going to make a run for the top while they can.

    Discover the French Revolution, you’ll see what is coming- and there are PLENTY of warning flags (such as this story) that tell you it is real, it is very real.

    DIVORCE now, while we still can

    when are Obama’s minions going to hold
    their “Million Ignoramuses March”?? :roll:

    no hate crime here, they’re
    not anti-Constitution et al..


  • Where’s the MF money Jon?

    She is a dangerous delusional hate monger.
    Ms. Lewis, let’s get real a minute. First, I have a cousin who retired from his teaching position in your school district. His pay and benefits were obscene. His pension is outrageous. He is the robber baron because I pay for that outrageous pension.
    Second, hundreds of people were murdered in Chicago last year by killers who attended your school district. Who filled those killers’ minds full of despair and hate? Was it the people who told them to study hard and get ahead or the hate mongers like you who told them they had no future.
    You Ms. Lewis, are a despicable person. Rot in Hell.

    Interesting how all these Democrats love to talk about KILLING PEOPLE, especially when these very same people are advocating for the destruction of the right to keep and bear arms.

    And you thought the old question: When only Democrats have guns how SAFE WILL TRUE AMERICANS BE? was just a saying.

    The question is serious.

    “…Do not think for a minute that the wealthy are ever going to allow you to legislate their riches away from them.”

    Only a despotic class could conceive of such an idea, let alone put it into practice.

  • Stella Horgan

    First of all she better get on one of Michelle Obama get up and move programs. Next somebody needs to explain that rich people don’t owe any of them anything. They are united in exploiting the poor and as she says she wants “united power”, that’s all that is important, power to steal from others the fruits of their labor…to support those not willing to push the wagon but want the easy ride.
