American Federation of Teachers President Randi Weingarten tried unsuccessfully on Wednesday to push some left-wing propaganda on the public.
Quoting from The Washington Post, that morning she published a tweet blaming America’s ongoing teacher shortage on “the culture wars that put teachers and staff under constant scrutiny over any conversations involving history, racism, and sexuality.”
In other words, she sought to blame the teacher shortage on conservatives speaking out against children being exposed to adult sexual content and being indoctrinated in radical nonsense like racial essentialism.
The truth about America’s teacher shortage -it worsened during the pandemic-because of burnout & “the culture wars that put teachers and staff under constant scrutiny over any conversations involving history, racism and sexuality.” https://t.co/9LkbPp9lM9

Despite Weingarten boasting over 120,000 followers, as of Thursday morning her tweet only boasted a paltry 57 likes and 0 comments. Granted, the lack of comments was attributable to Weingarten locking her post so that only those whom she “follows or mentioned can reply.”
That said, even though no one could directly reply to her post, they were still able to indirectly respond to her in general.
One group of critics who responded indirectly argued that teachers who purposefully expose their students to radical/inappropriate content deserve the extra scrutiny for pushing a “woke” agenda.
@rweingarten maybe the scrutiny is because racism & sexuality aren’t part if the three “R’s” that teachers should be teaching. Or maybe teachers are tired of paying dues to unions that do little for them and hire nut jobs like u that represent the worst of the craft.

@RandiWeingarten you a freaking stain on the profession of teaching. You like indoctrinated students to do what your vision is and no one else’s. CRT, Trans, global warming, climate change what a waste you are. Our children are in serious trouble if you continue on

You speak as if “constant scrutiny” of what teachers are teaching is a bad thing?
You have really lost the plot.
Why are replies turned off? https://t.co/KvXmOOXg0P

Too wordy, Randi. Let’s tighten it up:
Teachers are frustrated because parents found out we’re using the classroom to indoctrinate their kids into becoming woke socialists, and they had the absolute gall to raise a fuss about it.
That’s better. https://t.co/S6NtGIWpqg

As previously reported dozens of times, teachers all across the country have been caught teaching their students that they can identify as any gender they want and that some races are oppressors and some are victims. They’ve also been caught purposefully exposing children to adult content.
Moving along, another set of critics zeroed in on the vaccine mandates that Weingarten and her allies in the Democrat Party had staunchly supported earlier in the pandemic.
You fired them because of the vaccines they didn’t want to be forced to take. https://t.co/tc7B67WgjB

Teacher Union boss Randi Weingarten forgets that she supports the firing of thousands of teachers who refused the COVID shot and blames the teacher shortage on parents worried about what is being taught to our kids. Who put her in charge of our schools? https://t.co/NumRPzCnJF

They had a point. Take the mandate in New York City.
“The New York City Department of Education set a vaccination deadline for its teachers, requiring them to get vaccinated for COVID-19 before Sept. 5 of this year, or they would be fired. When the September deadline hit, the DOE fired 850 more teachers and support staff for not meeting the mandatory deadline,” NewsNation reported in September.
Critics also blasted Weingarten over her and other school unions’ support of school closures, mask requirements, and other unnecessary acts.
You worked hand in hand with democrats to lock our kids out of school and keep masks on their faces. You have tremendous responsibility for the damage this caused.

Randi Weingarten wrote the CDC policy that kept schools closed, and then used kids as shields for adults which led to mask mandates for healthy kids. @rweingarten represents what is wrong with public education, prioritizing gender/race ideology on kids rather than academics. https://t.co/I4YE1MqUys

This BS artist and empty suit was at the center of masking kids and putting them last, many who lost over a year of education. What a freaking blowhard. https://t.co/Ve2jClEIiI

It’s true that Weingarten and her union worked hand in hand with the Biden administration when it came to masking children.
