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.
