Deflection: “culture warriors are labeling any discussion of race or discrimination as CRT to try to make it toxic and to try to stop us from teaching students accurate history”
Last we saw Randi Weingarten, head of the anti-student and anti-parent American Federation of Teachers, she was speaking at the last campaign rally in Virginia for Democrat Terry McAuliffe. Her inclusion at the rally was proof positive that the left went into the election utterly clueless to the fact that parents and voters had had enough.
Nearly two years of kids being used as political pawns and parents being portrayed as domestic terrorists by the Randi Weingartens of the world led to the utter thrashing at the polls of Democrats across the commonwealth. Surely, the left and their feckless leaders, such as Randi Weingarten, would get the message sent by voters?
Ha ha. Not so much. Ms. Weingarten just today:
First & foremost, we must listen to parents. They are our partners. Let’s be clear tho-culture warriors are labeling any discussion of race or discrimination as CRT to try to make it toxic and to try to stop us from teaching students accurate history. https://t.co/ykuZkUiE08

Let’s unpack her tweet. First off, she in no way wishes to listen to or partner with teachers. Her diabolical union led the efforts to keep schools closed across the country during the pandemic, holding kids hostage and inflicting pain on families until their political agenda was met. She and her radical allies think they own our kids and that parents are a mere impediment that must be kicked aside.
She also doesn’t seem to recognize the fact that these “culture warriors” she derides are, in fact, parents. Just regular people, not necessarily even right-leaning. They did, however, just lead an incredible revolution against school boards and teachers unions who dare to insert themselves between parents and their children. And, truth be told, if Weingarten and her fellow educators had bothered to listen to the parents even a little bit, things might have been very different.
Then there’s the matter of CRT and “accurate history.” Let’s face it, Randi Weingarten wouldn’t recognize “accurate history” if she tripped over it in her Birkenstocks. What parents know, and the radical left fears, is that racial tension is actually very rare in schools. Kids are kids — they don’t hold the political biases of adults. And it’s because they are generally fair and good hearted that Randi Weingarten must lead an effort to sow division and teach hate in children.
Deflect, deflect, deflect. That’s all the left has in the wake of their shellacking in Virginia. That might have worked in 2020, but it sure as heck won’t work as we head into 2022.
