On Monday, November 12th (the observed Veterans Day), the Chicago Teachers Union organized a protest, not to honor vets, but to protest school closures. Ironically, all Chicago Public Schools were closed that day to supposedly honor military veterans who served our nation.
While the union forgot to bring American flags to honor those vets, they did have plenty of socialist, communists and other radicals in the ranks.
Judging by the resistance of union activists to answer simple questions, it’s unlikely EAGnews will be on the CTU’s Christmas – oops, we mean winter holiday card list.
And let’s hope all the four-letter words used during the protest aren’t standard fare in Chicago classrooms each day – those days, of course, that they aren’t on strike or embracing some radical political agenda instead of American exceptionalism.
