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.

    Teacher Unions Losing Members and Clout

    [The National Education Association (NEA) has lost more than 100,000 members since 2010. It presently has 2.2 million members. By 2014, union projections show, it could lose a cumulative total of about 308,000 full-time teachers and other workers, a 16% drop from 2010. Lost dues will shrink NEA’s budget an estimated $65 million, or 18%.]

    its stunning to hear people like karen lewis and our politicans constantly demonizing and preaching hatred and bigotry of a small group of people because they want their money. make no mistake that is what it is all about. it is about the lust for other people’s wealth by a small group of people who have seized control of our government for their own personal gain. this hatred and bigotry preached by the left againist the rich is so reminscent of what the nazis did to the jew.

    they constantly talk about too much wealth in the hands of the few but they work everyday to put ALL THE WEALTH in the hands of an infinitely smaller group of people. if the people thay have all the political power have all the economic power you live in a dictatorship.

    They laughed because they have a history of violence, and like to use force against those they disagree with.

    The Union slogan should be,

    “Union violence, in business since 1877”

    The fun part about people like her is there’s so much of that entitlement mentality, yet lack of self-control that they really think they have a shot in an upcoming revolution.

    Given a cut off of basic services, this kind of human will certainly perish quickly. I like to call them ‘puddles of people’ Their obesity is so great that it now causes health problems that are irreversible. Without the social structure that is in place now her kind will certainly die an uncomfortable death.

    So when the lynch mob comes to string up whomever they choose, all I gotta do is run faster than her. That’s not so hard; blind turtles with no sense of direction could run faster than her.

    They are too stupid to know. And they don’t care. Jabba the Hut tells the ignorant, mal-educated audience what they want to hear. All the while, Jabba probably makes at least $250,000 per year. She starts an insurrection and then shields her fat self from the fall out. She’s on the side of people. Just like these scumbag politicians, actors, etc.

    Wow! I’ll bet when she walks down the hall at school you can’t even tell which direction she’s going.

    Michael Moore and Karen Lewis are ONE in the Same person…You will note they have NEVER been seen together in the same room at the same time.

  • S. Wolf

    Considering her… ah… weight problem I have to wonder if she eats the rich after killing them a la Dahmer.

    “There is no difference between communism and socialism, except in
    the means of achieving the same ultimate end: communism proposes
    to enslave men by force, socialism – by vote. It is merely the difference
    between murder and suicide.”
    — Ayn Rand

    I’m surprised that fat cow didn’t articluate that they should eat the rich after killing them.

    “Alabama’s Nick Saban is now the nation’s highest-paid coach at almost $5.5 million per year, while SEC schools LSU, Auburn, and South Carolina were also part of a small handful of institutions that paid their coaches more than $3 million in 2012.”

    [Speaking of “wealth disparity”, recall that in the case of college football, the players get ZERO. But why worry about wealth disparity? We could worry about other metrics as well, such as Body Mass Index disparity, passing yards disparity, IQ disparity, and willingness to work disparity. Aptitude disparity. We even could have hotness disparity.

    This teacher could go find a line of work where her skills help her to achieve the most she can based on her skills and inclinations. It appears she has chosen to be a monger of covetousness and thus a professional parasite instead. –tBW]

    The ugly, grotesque pig means only the Republican & uncommitted rich. Not Democrat rich, like George Soros or all the wealthy bundlers, Park Ave, Hollywood types, etc. But then she may be animalisticly stupid enough not to know that.

  • Oliver

    And who would pay the taxes that cover your dumbass salary?
    This woman is an educator?

    What do the parents of the kids that are being taught by these “teachers” have to say about this? Do they not care? Are they ignored or threatened if the speak out? I would go ballistic over this.
