This isn't your mother’s teachers union.
The Chicago Teachers Union has brandished its radical political stripes in recent months. It has fully embraced Occupy Chicago, protested side-by-side with Action Now (the reincarnated ACORN) and joined a coalition set to protest the upcoming NATO/G-8 meetings scheduled for May in Chicago.
G-8 protests typically get violent, and we won’t be surprised if the CTU resorts to ugly behavior as well.
Neither will anybody else in Chicago. That’s why one company, Midwest Solar Control Corp., is urging local businesses to install “window blast film” and “anti-graffiti film” to their buildings before the G-8 summit begins.
The message is simple – a bunch of irresponsible radicals with no respect for private property are about to loot our town, so protect yourselves while you can.
And by the way, those irresponsible radicals may very well include some of the people who teach your children every day.
“The United National Antiwar Committee as well as an alliance of several Chicago area peace and justice organizations have vowed to protest during the NATO and 2012 Chicago G-8 summit,” a press release from the company says.
These organizations include the U.S. Palestinian Community Network, the Committee Against Political Repression, Chicago Teachers Union, Campaign to End the Death Penalty, Committee To Stop FBI Repression and the Chicago Anti-Eviction Campaign, according to the release.
“The fact that some G-8 summits have seen some confrontation is indicative that confrontation is likely this year,’ the release said. “Rahm Emanuel, the city’s mayor, has put restrictions on all public activities during the NATO and 2012 Chicago G-8 Summit, including morning gatherings and amplified sound. He has also put restrictions on parades. It therefore follows that confrontation is imminent since protesters are not backing down.”
We have to wonder how Chicago parents feel about their children's teachers planning to participate in a violent demonstration that could threaten private property.
Does anyone really wonder why some kids are so violent when their role models are so willing to engage in that type of behavior? It’s simply a perpetuation of a sick culture that utilizes bullying and intimidation to achieve objectives.
