“This is an excellent example of why parents need to be able to send their kids to private schools for an actual education.”
When a guillotine was placed in front of Amazon boss Jeff Bezos’s house, the Chicago Teachers Union (CTU) approved of the display: “We are completely frightened by, completely impressed by and completely in support of wherever this is headed. #Solidarity.”
But did the union use the royal we? Some CTU members went off on Twitter.

The CTU states in its profile that it has “28,000 teachers, para-professionals, clinicians and support staff dedicated to giving Chicago’s students the schools they deserve.”
I don’t know about you but I would not want these people around any kids.
The Center Square, based in Illinois, reported on it, but I couldn’t find it in any other publication from Illinois. A Google search showed that right-leaning publications wrote about it.
The CTU has not deleted the tweet.
Are you serious?? What is wrong with you? Fuck off

And run their pension fund through that guillotine.
They didn’t keep their side of the deal (educating kids) why should taxpayers keep the other side?

Why? I’m CTU and disagree with this.

As a retired CTU member/teacher, I am appalled by the union’s apparent support for this. Knock it off and get back to what you should be doing – working for your members. This is absolutely disgusting!

As a CTU member and a major critic of global wealth inequality, I am definitely not comfortable with this endorsement by the union

As a CTU member, I am not comfortable with this. Please remove it. Advocating for violence (in effigy or otherwise) is not something we should be comfortable with.
