Black Racist Teachers Union Pres. “Rich White People” To Blame For Chicago’s Failing Schools

June 27, 2013 at 9:51 am

A public union fat cat biting the very hands which she demands feed her. Quelle surprise.

[Video below the fold.]

CTU President Karen ‘Ivy League Dartmouth grad‘ Lewis:

(Daily Caller) –In a scathing speech on Wednesday, the president of the Chicago Teachers Union charged that racism and “rich white people” are to blame for the immense financial crisis facing the Chicago Public Schools.

In her remarks to an audience at the upscale City Club of Chicago, union boss Karen Lewis strongly criticized Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel. She also urged the city schools to follow the strategic blueprint of the Chicago Cubs baseball team.

The upscale ‘City Club of Chicago; fancy smancy! Thank God for the tax dollars of “rich white people”! Why didn’t they meet at a community center or better yet at a school auditorium or gym??? Exactly.

“Members of the status quo — the people who are running the schools and advising the mayor on how to best run our district — know what good education looks like because they have secured it for their own children in well-resourced public and private institutions,”

When will there be an honest conversation about the poverty, racism and inequality that hinders the delivery of a quality education product in our school system?” Lewis also asked in the speech. “When will we address the fact that rich, white people think they know what’s in the best interest of children of African Americans and Latinos—no matter what the parent’s income or education level.”
……
Lewis called for “an end to corporate subsidies and loopholes.” She demanded “progressive taxation” to close the $1 billion budget deficit currently facing the Second City and its public schools.

Higher income tax rates on wealthy residents would generate billions in necessary revenue, the union chief suggested. She also proposed new taxes for commuters and for financial transfers. [...]

 Video via Warner Todd Huston at Mr. Conservative who makes a most excellent point:

Chicago Teachers Union President Karen Lewis has all sorts of excuses for why the city’s fetid schools are hemorrhaging money, failing to educate students, and laying off teachers by the hundreds. It’s the fault of those darn “rich white people.” Even though minorities control nearly every part of the school district.
……
But notice what this woman never discusses? Yeah, TEACHING. All she talks about is union contracts, wages, benefits, and her anger about cuts in spending. The kids and their education is as far from Lewis’ mind as the next school year is from Chicago’s kids who were just released for the summer.

Like all representatives of a government employee union, Lewis is only interested in race cards, hatemongering, divisive rhetoric, and lies.

There is a reason why government employee unions were illegal all the way from the birth of this country until 1958. They are un-democratic, against the best interests of the voters, and bad for our government. Even Franklin D. Roosevelt, the patron saint of extreme liberalism, was against government unions.

Unions are antithetical to good government and teachers unions are a detriment to our kid’s education.

By the way, Karen Lewis has been “praised as a “fist-in-the-air, crowd-rousing, dynamic union leader” by by former Communist Party revolutionary turned Obama-funded “school reformer” Michael Klonsky”:

She’s good at pandering to her Che Guevara T-shirt-wearing colleagues and trash-talking the political machine. But she is the machine.

The Chicago Teachers Union rakes in nearly $30 million in forced dues from rank-and-file teachers every year. CTU is an affiliate of the behemoth AFL-CIO, which dropped an estimated $100 million in forced dues to support Democratic candidates and causes during the 2008 and 2010 election cycles.

Before Lewis took control of the CTU, the union was teetering on bankruptcy and owed millions of dollars in loans. The previous CTU president pulled down nearly $300,000 a year in base salary and compensation. Local union watchdogs reported that top CTU officers and staff with six-figure salaries and bonuses also received:

“… a monthly expense account for each administrator — officers, coordinators and field representatives — of $1,500; a car allowance of $7,000 per year (whether or not you have a car); 85 percent of car insurance and expenses paid; parking allowance; cellphone allowance; life insurance paid with union dues; and among other perks, a 53rd week of yearly pay for “working” over the Christmas holiday.”

Lewis assumed the CTU presidency in June 2010. “Teachers union officials declined to provide information on Lewis’ salary,” The Chicago Tribune reports [Link -ed.] but records show that she made more than $71,000 for half a year’s work in 2010 — along with compensation from the Illinois Federation of Teachers in 2011 totaling at least an additional $64,000 on top of her unknown base salary and benefits.

ALL at the expense of taxpayers.

It is high time that public unions are dismantled.

Union Thugs Demolish Lansing,Michigan Hot Dog Vendor Clint Tarver’s Equipment [Photo] Update: “N*gger, Uncle Tom” –Slurs Confirmed

December 12, 2012 at 9:12 am

“Civil war

I support Clint:

Early today[December 11, 2012], Clint Tarver, known as “The Hot Dog Guy” here in Lansing had his business attacked and destroyed by out of line and out of control protesters near the Capitol.

Everyone who has passed the hot dog cart knows what a kind and caring individual Clint is. He never fails to bestow a smile or friendly greeting. In no way [did] he provoke this attack, nor any of the behavior displayed toward him.

Beyond the Cart: The Story of Clint Tarver:

Regardless of your position on current legislation, rebuilding Clint’s Hot Dogs is something we can all support. Please give what you can to get this deserving businessman back out there!

If you would like to help Clint get back on his feet ==>DONATE HERE

Update: Racist, violent, destructive monsters.

Update 2: The plot thickens!

The woman (Lorilea Susanne) who set up the fundraising page for Clint has spoken to his wife. Apparently Clint was hired to provide catering for the Americans For Prosperity tent which was also destroyed by union thugs.

*UPDATE* 11:40am – I have spoken with Linda Lee, Clint’s wife. She says he is absolutely overwhelmed with our support, even more so than by the events of yesterday. I would like to clarify the events, however. Clint hired as a caterer for the AFP tent which was torn down. He was much more concerned about the others, and particularly helped to get the women out of the tent. It was when he returned to gather his equipment that the taunts and racial slurs began. He says the working people did not respect the working man. He was not there to be political; he was just there to serve. This is the Clint we know and love. Please, let’s respect him and leave our political opinions out of this. This is about our support for Clint.

Emphasis hers.

Update 3:

Slate:

Romney’s Saturday started off well. He was the star of the Ingham County Lincoln Day breakfast, an eggs-and-coffee-and-county-commissioner-placards affair in the dining room of a Lansing, Mich., country club.

Before he spoke, Republicans heard “The Star-Spangled Banner” sung by the Old School Fellas, a zoot-suited amateur doo-wop group. “Mitt’s a good, Christian man like I am,” explained Clinton Tarver, wearing the reddest of the zoot suits.

Update 4: AFP Michigan organizer Annie Patnaude discusses the attack. She was onsite and witnessed the incident.

Update 5:  Dana Loesch speaks with Clint.

Update 6: $23,771 raised so far. God Bless you one and all.

Update 7:  Lee Stranahan’s in person interview with Clint The Hot Dog Guy. Topic:  The union mob racist attack and the the attack on the AFP tent in Lansing. At first Clint was caught in the crossfire then the vicious union mob turned their racist anger towards him. He was working for the enemy –Americans For Prosperity. Thus deserving of their wrath.

Stacy McCain:

Good Lord. Of course, they have no sense of shame, but are they also completely lacking a sense of irony? I mean, the Left has spent nearly four years building their “Tea Party is racist” meme, and the AFL-CIO brutes — who were nearly all white, as Stranahan reports and video verifies — decide they’ll just waste all that liberal media propaganda in order to terrorize a guy whose only “crime” is serving hot dogs?

Small Businessman RAILS Against Obama&DNC “This black man WILL NEVER EVER VOTE DEMOCRAT AGAIN! I AM NOW AN INDEPENDENT”

August 9, 2012 at 1:06 pm

“I WILL BE UNAPOLOGETIC ABOUT CAMPAIGNING AGAINST PRESIDENT OBAMA, THE DNC, AND THEIR ASSAULT ON SMALL BUSINESSES”

All caps emphasis …his.

North Carolina small business owner Calvin Hunter exposes the incestuous, illegal relationship between the Democrat Party and Unions. N.C. being a ‘right to work’ state has not stopped the DNC from insisting that all Democrat National Convention Event Planners, Producers, and Production Companies use union labor.

Why this Afro American small businessman and life-long Democrat will never vote Democrat again - Canada Free Press

(Excerpt)

"President Obama’s latest ad states, ” We should all stand behind small businesses”. How ironic is that when they will not stand behind my small minority owned business in Charlotte, North Carolina at the Democratic National Convention?"

When I heard the Democratic National Convention was coming to Charlotte, North Carolina, I was very excited. An event such as this is a once in a lifetime event for someone in my business. Although the Convention would be held at Time Warner Arena which uses the local labor union to provide services that I provide, I felt that I would get more than my share of work at other facilities and hotels in Charlotte which I already do. I registered on the DNC Vendor Database and hoped that I would get a fair share of work.

I began to hear rumors that DNC officials were asking all Event Planners, Producers, and Production Companies to use union labor. I got a copy of their RFP (Request for Proposal) and read it myself. The proposal read “we prefer that you use Union labor” for our events. I was flabbergasted. You see, North Carolina is a Right To Work state, which means in layman’s terms that you cannot make anyone use union labor. For the DNC to come to North Carolina and blatantly break our Right To Work laws is disheartening. Even though the RFP is phrased as “we prefer” saying this is enough to tell anyone that wants to get a piece of this $36, 000,000.00 pie, to abide by their preference. Anyone who wants to do business with the DNC will surely not go against their wishes in their RFP. Again this is a once in a lifetime event. Most people in our business will never see an event of this magnitude in a lifetime.
……
This is my story and I will not be afraid to tell it. I should not be afraid to tell my story. I grew up in the projects amongst drug dealers and poverty. I should not be afraid to pursue the American Dream. I bring this illegal activity to light for all people that are afraid to speak out about this injustice. I must expose the DNC!

There is no fair chance to compete for DNC Work
……
America was built by small businessmen who believed in themselves and had the audacity to take a chance on the American Dream. This is the American way. Earn it! This country was founded on the principle that all people will have the opportunity to succeed as far as talent and work ethic will get them.

I was interviewed by Julie Rose from WFAE 90.7 about the DNC and their illegal forced union requirements.

After listening to the story, this is my personal message to The Democratic National Committee: What you are doing is illegal, unethical, and immoral in a Right To Work State. You should all be ashamed of your selves for discriminating against a black man! As the story says, The DNC is unapologetic about mandating union labor even though it is illegal in a Right to Work State. I WILL BE UNAPOLOGETIC ABOUT CAMPAIGNING AGAINST PRESIDENT OBAMA, THE DNC, AND THEIR ASSAULT ON SMALL BUSINESSES. It appears less than 2 months out that my company will get no benefits from this Convention. The more than 300 freelancers that work for me will reap no rewards of this once in a lifetime event by the so called Party of the working man! President Obama’s latest ad states, ” We should all stand behind small businesses”. How ironic is that when they will not stand behind my small minority owned business in Charlotte, North Carolina at the Democratic National Convention?

I am the American Dream!

This black man, who has never asked to be given anything, has worked for everything he achieved, never complained, and contributes to the economy by developing businessmen, not victims, WILL NEVER, EVER, VOTE DEMOCRAT AGAIN! I AM NOW AN INDEPENDENT. Thank you, Democratic National Convention for opening my eyes to what you truly stand for. I refer to the quote “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” My final message to the Democratic National Convention is WE SHALL OVERCOME SOME DAY because I am the American Dream!

For those of you who believe in giving business opportunities to small business people, please support THE AMERICAN DREAM! If you are doing an event in Charlotte North Carolina at the Charlotte Convention Center, Hotels, or any venue other than Time Warner Arena, Bojangles’ Coliseum, or Ovens Auditorium, please consider giving your business to a company that earns your business the American way, Production Management Specialists LLC! For more information about me and my business’s please visit my Linked in page.

READ it ALL.

Snipped from the WFAE article Calvin linked to:

The Charlotte Regional Visitors Authority gives a similar explanation for why it relies on Local 322 for events at Time Warner Cable Arena, Bojangles Coliseum and Ovens Auditorium. But those are city-owned venues, and in North Carolina it’s illegal for a government agency to contract with a labor union.

The CRVA gets around that by asking Local 322 for referrals and hiring those stagehands directly. Local 322 still takes its 5 percent cut from those paychecks. Bo Howard [Local 322 Business Agent] describes the arrangement with CRVA as a “handshake agreement.”

How cozy… Legal?

DNC PREFERS UNIONS

But in reality, the union is everywhere.

And Hunter’s about to lose out to it again on what he hoped would be a big business opportunity. He put himself on the vendor registry the DNC established for companies looking to do convention business, but so far, nothing’s come his way.

“No calls,” says Hunter. “Two months out and no calls. In our business two months out, no calls is not good.”

DNC organizers are unapologetic about their preference for using local union labor when possible.

The proof is in the “no call” pudding.

The ‘International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees’ is a member of Obama union goon pal Richard Trumka’s AFL-CIO.

So gird your loins Calvin…union thug repercussions are likely to follow…

Caught On Tape! Legislators, Union Bosses Agree To Help Fake Company Seek Taxpayer Funding For ‘”Bullsh*t” Green Jobs’

John Hutchings, member of the Broome County legislature, told the undercover reporters posing as “Earth Supply and Renewal” his opinion on taxpayer-funded grant contracts; “You know the Green Jobs — Green NY, between us, a lot of it is bullsh*t”. Anthony Tocci, business manager for [Laborers' International Union of North America (LIUNA) ]-Local 601, tells Earth Supply and Renewal “You just wanna(sic) get the money.

Occupy CPAC ‘Grass Roots‘ Astroturf  Protesters PAID To Protest CPAC:

YouCruising

Protesters at Friday’s “Occupy CPAC” event, organized by AFL-CIO and the Occupy DC movement, told The Daily Caller that they were paid “sixty bucks a head” to protest outside the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington, D.C.

One protester told TheDC that all the “Occupy” activists were being paid to protest, and that his union, Sheet Metal Workers Local 100, approached him about the money-making opportunity.

“I have nothing nice to say about Local 100. … They just told me ‘you wanna make sixty bucks? So c’mon,’” the protester said.

Other “Occupy CPAC” protesters were unwilling to speak on camera because they were unaware what they were protesting and what the CPAC event was about.

More on the astroturfed union presence:

Teamsters with “Stop the War on Worker” signs joined autoworkers, sheetmetal workers, firefighters, elevator constructors, UFCW, SEIU, AFSCME, UNITE. Community groups from as far away as Baltimore showed up by the busload.

The New “Hoffa Standard” Video: ABC’s Jake Tapper Presses WH Weasel Carney on Hoffa’s Tea Party Remarks – Zero Condemnation Zero Denunciation [Updated with Transcript]

September 6, 2011 at 7:39 pm

Update: Transcript of the discussion on the as coined by Tapper the new “Hoffa Standard

Jake Tapper: And lastly, Jay, in January, President Obama said after the shooting of Gabrielle Giffords,

“But at a time when our discourse has become so sharply polarized – at a time when we are far too eager to lay the blame for all that ails the world at the feet of those who think differently than we do – it’s important for us to pause for a moment and make sure that we are talking with each other in a way that heals, not a way that wounds.”

Did he mean that?

Jay Carney: Of course he did.

Jake Tapper: Then, where do the comments by the Teamsters president fit in with that?

Jay Carney: First of all, those weren’t comments by the President. Secondly, as I think it’s been reported…

Jake Tapper: …comments by a union leader, at an event that President Obama spoke at…

Jay Carney: I understand that there is a ritual in Washington that, you know, somebody says something, and you link the associations, and then everybody who has an association with him or her has to avow or disavow. The President wasn’t there, he wasn’t on the stage, he didn’t speak for another twenty minutes, he didn’t hear it. I really don’t have any comment beyond that.

Jake Tapper: Okay, well, some of us covered the campaign, and recall a time when somebody made some harsh comments about then-Senator Obama during the introduction at a McCain rally, and the Obama campaign was offended, and expected an apology, Senator McCain came out and did so.

Jay Carney: Mr. Hoffa speaks for himself, he speaks for the labor movement, AFL-CIO.

[Hoffa is the president of the Teamsters you idiot! --Ed.]

The President speaks for himself, I speak for the President. What the President was glad to do yesterday was the opportunity to present his views on the importance of working Americans, and on the importance of taking measures to help working Americans, to create jobs and grow the economy.

Jake Tapper: So the precedent you’re setting right now for the 2012 election is, the Republican candidates are the ones to pay attention to. Those who introduce them at rallies, their surrogates, we don’t have to pay attention to anything that they say.

Jay Carney: Jake, I think I’ve said what I can say…

Jake Tapper: Is that the standard now?

Jay Carney: (inaudible)

Jake Tapper: I’d rather not have to do this Washington kabuki every time something happens, but if that’s the standard, if that’s the standard…

Jay Carney: The standard is we should focus on the actions we can take to grow the economy and create jobs, instead of focusing on kabuki theater.

Fred Lucas: Does the President find the comments appropriate?

Jay Carney: Can we move on?

Sure we can “move on” or more to the point; you, Obama and all of the rest of the toads in the Obama Admin. will be ‘moving OUT’ come November 2012.
