Teachers Union releases hit piece video against director of Hating Breitbart

Teachers Union releases hit piece video against director of Hating Breitbart

You would think the Chicago Teachers Union has too much going on right now to wage a personal campaign against a local filmmaker.

School starts September 4, and CTU is about to authorize a strike after having been embroiled in a contract standoff with Mayor Rahm Emanuel. And they’ve been busy deploying union members all over town (even up to Wisconsin) to participate in protests with Occupy, against Scott Walker and NATO, and various other activities that are completely unrelated to teaching.

Nevertheless, they had the time to produce a 23-minute hit piece video on Andrew Marcus, director of the upcoming documentary Hating Breitbart, and an organization for which he produced a short documentary, Education Action Group.

What did Marcus and EAG do to cause the Chicago Teachers Union to release a 23-minute video just about them?

They worked with FOX News’s Juan Williams to produce “A Tale of Two Missions,” which “examines the reform battle being waged in Chicago between advocates for school choice and the CTU.”

For this, the CTU refers to Marcus as a “right-wing extremist” and his blog, Founding Bloggers, as “radical.”

The Teachers Union may also have been upset about Marcus’s coverage of some of their protest marches, particularly the documentation of their collaboration with Occupy and Anarchist organizer Lisa Fithian:

According to Marcus, “The leadership of CTU premeditated their own arrests with the help of self-proclaimed anarchists, and yet they smear my reputation. They should apologize to me and the law abiding people of Chicago who deserve teachers who put children above radical politics.”

I’ve been documenting the strange bedfellows the Chicago Teachers Union has been keeping, particularly during the Occupy “spring” and NATO protests. If they are so concerned about the children, maybe they ought to quit going to anarchist and Occupy protests and using children as cover for their own far-left political agendas.

And if putting their resources into attacking Andrew Marcus and EAG for exposing the truth about their activities–and about the woeful state of education in Chicago today–results in a hit-piece video 23 minutes long, what will they do if the mainstream media ever started reporting on them?


Donations tax deductible
to the full extent allowed by law.


The self-serving, out-of-control, union-based cabal of socialist indoctrinators (what used to be jokingly called “teachers”) have made a leftist propaganda mockery of the education process while grabbing their humongous taxpayer-funded salaries and gold-plated benefits that are bankrupting cities and states and helping finance the d-cRAT socialist party by laundering a part their taxpayer-funded salary via dues to their leftist union, which then turns the money over to their d-cRAT socialist co-conspirators in destroying AMerica.

Is this all deliberate lefty dem tactics to muddy the water? Is it just typical dem infighting over the loot? Is it a sign the dems are coming apart and eating each other? Im confused? What is the Chicago street dem to make of it? Are they issued secret decoder rings to tell them? What the hell is Juan Williams up to? Questions ? We got questions?

Ps : Whats with Rahm? And dont tell me he’s developed a sense of fiscal responsibility. Is there a pike fund for assorted heads to donate to? I smell a convoluted lefty dem Black Op.

The Republicans need to go on offensive on Education the same way they went on the offensive with Medicare. Heritage or Cato needs to do a study showing how much education money goes to union expenses, sweetheart deals on union health insurance and featherbedding in administration. Total it all up, so the Republicans can say that the Democrats and their union cronies are taking Umpty Billion Dollars a year out of education, and Romney/Ryan will fight to get that money put back in the classroom.

Look at what happened in Wisconsin. The backscratching union contracts were renegotiated, and the state saved Billions. It is time to bring that same fight, coast-to-coast.

Get in there and work both sides Rahm..”never let a good” know the rest. Hey, you can always ask assholerod and valerie. 44 does..

Hopefully, taxpayers are paying attention to the extortion tactics employed by public unions.

Hopefully, American citizens are paying attention to the 10% of GDP federal deficit which is a covert 10% (regressive and progressive) tax on every taxpayer and taxable entity.

The public unions have overstayed their welcome and perhaps the were never actually welcome. Obama has overstayed his welcome and he was never welcome by people who reject redistributive change (i.e. involuntary exploitation) on principle.

No taxation without representation!

It takes seriously stupid parents to send there children into a public school system which primarily exists to bankrupt their children.

In return for 12 years of ‘free public school education’ the kids will be bankrupt for life.

It is the unions but more importantly so much of the ed establishment is aware education was weaponized years ago. It is the institution everyone goes through so it is the perfect vehicle to take down the noetic system of the West, especially the US. The unions and the profs and the community organizers who want power simply limit knowledge and cultivate the values, attitudes, beliefs, and feelings via the schools. They have thus interfered with everything that guides most human behavior and they have known that for years.

Every time the Chicago schools learned Mastery Learning did not work they renamed it and kept at it. Ignorant and aggrieved is a powerful political weapon.

When I saw Stanley Kurtz’s work on the Regional Equity Movement and the Building One America conference I saw how ed fit in and have been working on that aspect. On top of the unions the community organizers and the racial equity theorists come crashing through very quickly. is the story I wrote on how the urban schools are being kept weak to be the wick and spark for a stealth rebellion.

In France the leverage to gut academics was race. Here it is gender, race, and ethnicity.

We have to stop the gutting of academics. Without the unitary self that john powell wants to target, there is only the politically connected.

And there is little freedom or equity there.

“..what will they do if the mainstream media ever started reporting on them?”

Fortunately they will never have to face that problem. Not in Chicago. No way!

OT, but check this out:

Electoral College Prediction Model Points To A Mitt Romney Win In 2012

Two University of Colorado professors, one from Boulder and one from Denver, have put together an Electoral College forecast model to predict who will win the 2012 presidential election and the result is bad news for Barack Obama. The model points to a Mitt Romney victory in 2012.

Ken Bickers from CU-Boulder and Michael Berry from CU-Denver, the two political science professors who devised the prediction model, say that it has correctly forecast every winner of the electoral race since 1980.

“what will they do if the mainstream media ever started reporting on them?”


Thanks – I needed a good laugh.

Just read an June, ’12 article from Chicago CBS that reported Chicago teachers are the highest paid in the nation at $76K/year. Now think about that: they are higher paid that teachers in New York where the cost of living is higher than Chicago. And that is a tony $76K for 9 months work. If they earned the same for all 12 months, we are taking about a cool $101K/yr.

If I were a parent, I would move from Chicago post haste, if I could. I would find a job in another state and leave Illinois to go the way of California. Only a child abuser would want their kids to grow up in such a radical town.

The number of home schooled children is a rapidly growning trend in Texas. The home school coalition is great, and children are learning to read, write and excel at math, instead of sitting in a class room with a teacher who thinks her 5 grand a month isn’t enough.

    We know three couples with kids about to enter school who just moved out of one of the “best” Chicago neighborhoods so they wouldn’t have to send the kids to CPS—one couple really die-hard lefties as well (they become the Jan Schakowsky voters).

    Non-tenured teachers go on unemployment for three months in the summer…it’s a game.

    Around here homeschooling is the only way to avoid the awful curricula in the schools…they all teach the same crap (Univ. of Chicago math, aka “Everyday Math”, etc.). Public, private, parochial, the curricula is largely the same…not mastery but, well, “twaddle” and indoctrination (yes, even at Catholic schools…go green, save the planet, no garbage days, hang a portrait of Obama and hide the crucifix). But, everyone feels good… The big fight with the CPS union is over a longer day…to do what I don’t know.

First make sure empty suit idiots are in charge at CPS (see Arnie Duncan). Then divert hundreds of millions of tax dollars away from schools and into city coffers via TIF’s. Then make sure the dumbest most radical are elected to the union leadership, and then start busing “parent protesters” to school meetings railing against teachers.

CTU has been played and cornered into a disastrous strike that will range from bad, where they make multiple concessions, to having the union de-certified and totally bypassed.

All the children, and about 85% of the teachers are the victims in this charade.

They have time to make propaganda films, because they have plenty of money to hire people to make them.

They have plenty of money because they receive exorbitant amounts of dues from overpaid teachers.

The teachers are overpaid, because they are in the tank for the democrat party machine.

The Democrat party machine has the money to overpay the teachers because they are blindly voted back into office by political hack union government workers.

In other words, the propaganda film in question was paid for by taxpayers — us!

Struck a nerve, did he?
