Alexandria-Ocasio Cortez jumped for joy when she heard why these public schools canceled class

85

Teachers unions are infecting America’s youth with hatred of our country.

While they claim to represent hard-working teachers, they’ve become nothing more than mouthpieces for the radical fringe of the Democrat Party.

And the reason why this teachers union in one state is shutting down classes had Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez grinning from ear to ear.

School districts across North Carolina are canceling classes on May 1.

May 1 is celebrated by socialists as “May Day.”

In fact, Netflix is even releasing a documentary celebrating Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on May Day.

Now, the teachers union is rallying upwards of 19,000 people to go to the capital on a school day.

The News & Observer reports:

School districts across North Carolina are canceling classes for May 1 in advance of what could be a larger protest than the one that brought more than 19,000 people to downtown Raleigh last year.

The N.C. Association of Educators has urged school employees to request the day off, prompting districts such as Wake County on Wednesday and Charlotte-Mecklenburg on Thursday to say they won’t have enough substitute teachers to hold classes. All four of the state’s largest school districts have announced they’ll be closed May 1.

The rhetoric on both sides has ratcheted up. Supporters say bold action is needed again to pressure state lawmakers to make budget decisions on Medicaid and education funding that they think will help improve North Carolina.

According to WRAL, North Carolina ranks in the middle of the pack – 29th – in terms of teacher pay.

In a Facebook post, Republican Senate Leader Phil Berger shot back at the May Day protesters, saying “On May 1, thousands of children will be forced out of the classroom and hardworking parents will have to find childcare or miss work — all so the far-left teacher strike organizers can try to elect more Democrats.”

Democrat activists pulling the strings in teachers unions know they have to win North Carolina if they’re going to defeat President Trump in 2020.

So they are trying to rally socialists to appeal to the Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wing of the Democrat Party by organizing a massive protest.

But the teachers union is putting politics above of students.

And they’re holding parents hostage to push their socialist agenda in the classroom.

Do you support the teachers union forcing North Carolina schools to shut down on a socialist holiday?

    • This new wave of idiots on the beltway are radicals utilizing radical techniques to get into office. Once there, they unleash their “ideals” on the rest of us. Voting is good. But look at how much damage they can do in a short time. Special vote necessary to get them out before they hurt America. Bad enough they lie to get into office to fill their own pockets. But the stakes are much higher now. They are destroying the country!

      • it’s time to start the civil war now. what are the conservative waiting on? That’s the only thing that’s gonna stop the lefts agenda. It’s not the Leftist fault the country is being destroyed it’s the weak republicans/conservatives who stand by and do nothing about it but watch the country be destroyed. To scared to do anything about it? Or don’t care enough to do anything about it? Now is the time to stop it. waiting longer it will only become more ugly than it is now.

        • The border needs attention now, they need Citizens to join in on US militia citizen border patrol!!
          But next is …
          a march against our government, by ..
          All Citizens marching to their own State Capital, protesting against all the corrupt policies made by former administrations… September 17th is the date set for the march !!! I’m from Chicago, I’ll march to Springfield, Illinois capital on September 17th

        • I AGREE WITH THIS POST, THE UNIONS ARE THE REASON THIS COUNTRY IS IN COMBATIVE MIND SET IT IS IN TODAY, DO IT MY WAY OR WE WILL STRIKE.JUST SO A FEW ,PEOPLE IN HIGH OFFICES CAN BECOME MILLIONAIRES.

    • Liberals are stupid, & don’t care what’s being done to this country. They voted those anti-America pos in office to specifically put this country down!

    • The battle is for the minds and hearts ♥️ of America’s youths and if we don’t do something fast? We could be I deeper dodo before we know it?Adolf Hitler knew that the only way to advance the Natszi agenda was thru the youth of the nation. Libtard Democrats are doing the exact same thing. They must be neutralized at all costs!

    • I TOTALLY AGREE WITH YOU. WE DO NOT NEED SOME BIMBO IN OUR GOVERNMENT TELLING OUR TEACHERS WHAT THEY CAN TEACH AND WHAT DAYS THEY NEED TO TAKE OFF TO SUPPORT THEIR WEIRD IDEAS. THE TEACHERS ARE HIRED TO TEACH OUR CHILDREN THE TRUTH AND NUMBERS AND NOT WHAT SOME ELECTED BIMBO WANTS THEM TO TEACH. THE BIMBO AND HER KIND NEED TO JUST SHUT THEIR BIG HATEFUL MOUTHS AND GO HIDE UNDER A ROCK AND NEVER COME OUT AGAIN. i AM A PARENT OF 3 GROWN CHILDREN ALL WHO GRADUATED HIGH SCHOOL AND ARE GOOD DECENT HONEST ADULTS AND PARENTS OF THEIR OWN CHILDREN.

      • The democraps have had our kids indoctrinated and taught to hate this country for more than 20 years! We need to get control of our schools & stop teaching our youth you are wrong to expect your country’s laws to be obeyed!

  1. If they think this will win over voters by costing them time and money while short handing employers their bigger idiots than I give them credit for being.
    Unions only represent their own interests, like the democRats they only want more power and money.

  2. Politics have no place in schools. The teachers job is to teach the kids and get them ready for the real world. That hasn’t been happening for around 35 years. They should either hold class on May 1 or lose funding.

    • I also agree. Schools are places for educating students. They are not places for political agenda’s to be pushed, this bull “politically correct” garbage to be taught nor are they restaurants, baby sitting services or fashion shows. They are places that are supposed to teach the basic skills for students to find their way in life and grow into law abiding, productive citizens. Reading, writing, arithmetic and in today’s day in age, true and original history as it really happened.

      • i TOTALLY AGREE WITH YOU 3 AS WE NEED GOOD TEACHERS IN SCHOOL TEACHING EDUCATION NOT POLITICS! LET THE KIDS GET OUT OF SCHOOL BEFORE YOU TRY TEACH THEM WHO TO VOTE FOR. YOU NEED TO BE 21 TO VOTE SO GIVE THE CHILDREN TIME TO LEARN WHICH IS THE BEST WAY TO GO ON IN LIFE.

      • Are you aware the do not teach about the Vietnam Nam War? That our “police actions in the Middle East “ were illegal, unwanted and unasked for assistance? They do NOT teach cursive handwriting because “they have no need of it”. That most HS grads can not spell because only abbreviations are used when texting? In fact, most HS grads are lucky to read at a third grade level? They have not taught physics for decades, so they have no concept how long a moving vehicle takes to stop! And that not a single one of them owes anything to this country, it’s legal citizens or to even obey any law they disagree with! It is ok to physically attack a police officer! We MUST start educating our youth again. Those who refuse to be law abiding citizens should be locked up or locked out of this country!

    • It’s not politics, it’s re-education. Are you old enough to remember the special presentation way back in the 50’s called THE CHILDREN’S HOUR – NOT FOR CHILDREN.
      Students arrived at school on Monday only to learn all their teachers had been replaced and sent off for “re-education”. New teachers were all card carrying Communists.

  3. Heaven forbid ANYONE think teachers are Underpaid and thought of this themselves.
    I’ll bet the Senator didn’t even know this was happening until some RAG tied it to her!

  4. Heaven Help Us!!!!
    Teachers taking a school day off to go protest to state lawmakers WHO DON’T USUALLY WORK ON THE WEEKENDS.
    Makes about as much sense as people who protest on Saturdays being called Welfare recipients because they’re not at work, millions in the US have Saturday and Sundays off!

  5. One reason they are 29th in pay, is because the cost of living in North Carolina is lower. Granted, some things like an auto purchase are similar. Houses are lower in cost, etc.!
    The demo-commies are always prepared to take advantage of details that many people are either too stupid, or completely unwilling to do their own thinking on ANYTHING!!!!!
    Like their demand for gun confiscation or anything else, ANY THINKING INDIVIDUAL SHOULD BE ABLE TO FIGURE OUT, IT ONLY DISARMS THE FREE, NON-CRIMINAL PEOPLE AND NOT THE DEMO-COMMIE, SS TROOPS -THE CRIMINALS!

  6. Teachers have a right to a day off for protest. The local school boards have a right to lengthen the school year. I would suggest an additional two days be added, and when the teachers union complains, make it month.

      • Totally agree with you. If the teachers want to have a day off to protest then yes they should have to work an extra day some time during the year to make up for it. Just like any one else would have to. But School Teachers need to get better pay for what they do. I may be wrong but I think most teachers are the lowest paid people in the country but have the hardest and most important job on earth. A mom of 3.

    • Best thing is to have school all year and no salary increase. Teachers and Professors has corrupted our children. I would home school my kids. Besides that kids that are home schooled are so much smarter than the kids that go to public or private schools. Hime schooling in Indiana is big.

    • I AGREE WITH THIS POST, THE UNIONS ARE THE REASON THIS COUNTRY IS IN COMBATIVE MIND SET IT IS IN TODAY, DO IT MY WAY OR WE WILL STRIKE.JUST SO A FEW ,PEOPLE IN HIGH OFFICES CAN BECOME MILLIONAIRES.

  7. Unions can be a problem anywhere the are found because they are not for the worker they are for the
    union only. Unions should not be allowed for Teachers, that gets politics mixed up with the education of
    young kids. The education system is bad enough already. They teach people to read but try asking one
    of the kids to tell you what he just read, or what the writer was saying. Most cannot answer except to repeat the exact written words. Math is a farce. The so called New math makes math almost impossible to learn. I have a BA in Math and I have trouble understand the logic of ‘New’ math.
    They no longer teach anything about the national Government, how it works, why it works and the requirement of the Constitution. In short, the education today is more brainwashing than teaching what should be taught.

    • I agree! I went to college to become a teacher, but if I were offered a teaching position now in any radical, leftist public school, I wouldn’t take it even if they offered me five times the regular salary! I went to college to be a teacher, NOT a brainwasher! This is why I always tell my relatives and friends who have young children: Do NOT send your kids to public schools! Home school them instead, or, if they can afford it, send them to a good Christian school. You can’t put a price tag on your children’s future…it is priceless, and worth far more than what you would ever pay a private Christian school for.

    • I was some of those poor kids they first tried it on back around 1968-1969. It screwed all us kids up! I actually PAID to go to summer school to learn real math, I thought I might need it in life! Whatever ass keeps throwing this crap out there should be burned alive at a stake of those books. First kid to actually solve a problem can decide whether to let them keep burning, providing they manage before it burns out naturally!

  8. Ever notice that these professionals who we entrust our children to care less for them and more for themselves. They use our children after they brainwash them each and every day in school so our children show their support for the teachers. We need professional teachers not what the majority of them are today. Many can’t pass a test based on the material they teach

    • I quit having respect for “teachers” when they started having the “walkouts” at critical times for the kids. Held them ransom to get what they wanted! I know for a fact they all went to Applebee’s with at least $100 each EVERY Friday while they bemoaned their “low pay and unreasonable job demands”. My mom was the janitor & they asked her to go several times & said “it’s only $100! Who can’t afford that.” My mom, for damn sure!

    • DAMN STRAIGHT MARINE! Somebody explain to me how the USA passed a BAN on Muslim’s invading our country back in the late 50s or early 60s, yet Obummer flooded them in here by the UNREPORTED multi-thousands during his illegal occupation! No one can get an exact count! The ban was passed and exists BECAUSE the stated goals of the Muslim invasion was to overthrow our government, our country and to institute Sharia Law. Anyone who resisted was to be executed on the spot. So WHY are they being handed our country now?

  9. PERHAPS TEACHER’S UNION NEEDS INVESTIGATION OR ELIMINATE IT!!

    TEACHERS, WHO ENJOY MANY VACATIONS AND DAYS OFF THROUGH OUT THE YEAR ARE N OW FAIRLY COMPENSATED FOR THEIR EFFORTS………

    THEIR UNION IS A TOOL OF THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY, WE NEED TO TAKE A LONG HARD LOOK AND RE-EVALUATE ITS NEED!!

    • I did not know that! I most certainly support Law Day and will do so in the future. I also support home schooling and will step up efforts on that!

  10. Gosh, More votes for trump in 2020.
    A lot of pissed off parents.
    OR, it could be fake news, because for a fact the economy is a lot better,
    and the teachers are probably are just bored…..

  11. A sorry thing what public schools have become! I believe that the best of education begins at home. Parenting, not teachers are the primary education and always has been. The quality of education in public schools is secondary to parenting.
    Both of my parents were educators and formed the foundation in all 6 of us kids before we entered public schools. It is that foundation that made us successful in relationships, work ethic, and all.
    The biggest down fall to the public schools today is the government intervention of the home, education and church.
    501 c 3 is the worst thing that has happened to the church and unions the worst thing to happen to public schools.

    This “May Day” thing, should be viewed as civil rights violation!

    • The Proletarian Dictatorship (Communism) is responsible for over 150 million murders. Let them know that on May Day they are celebrating the murder of 150 million people.

    • And yet the constant demands for ever younger pre-school indoctrination centers! I was raised to believe that parents should be involved and prepare their child (at very least) to begin school. All these “parents” who do nothing useful all day, any day, yet can only scream at and smack babies who dare to explore or seek love or do anything but sleep and stay out of their way! Children are the most precious gift ever received! It needs to go back to pregnant 12 year olds are watched over to insure nutrition and as little harm as possible for the fetus & then a DECENT, LOVING home for the child. Birth control should be mandatory & the parent held responsible for non-use! For BOTH sexes! If “parents” were held accountable for what that juvenile is up to, things would improve! It was a workable system for MANY years! You have it, and insist on keeping it, you are responsible for it! There are valid reasons juveniles had limits. They are not ready for adult responsibilities! Everyone suffers.

  12. If these “teachers” actually did their jobs like the ones I had maybe they would see the garbage they’re using for what it is. Common Core was a commie attempt to dumb down the population so they don’t know what the Demobrats want, and it ain’t to educate the children.

  13. The so-called teacher’s union has been nothing but donkey dung for many years. They might better be called a limb of the criminal demoSCUM party. The union is nothing but a front for illegal activity and a disgrace to our educational system and should be disbanded. it is nothing but corruption.

  14. In a perfect world, striking teachers that shut down schools would be fired. They are paid with tax money, and should be ashamed of what this action does to working class parents. I’ve had to cancel family summer vacation trips because I had to use up precious vacation time to stay with my child…while the teachers I pay to educate them are striking. And I don’t get summers off!

  15. You’re Fired North Carolina will be Hiring Non Union Teachers for for the Rest of this Century and Beyond all Pay is Based on Actual Teaching with a 5% raise after the 1st Year!

  16. So -they are thinking that there won’t be enough subs to go in for them? Here’s a novel idea-I am willing to bet that there are more than enough fed-up parents and grandparents who would in a heartbeat step up to the plate to keep their kids in school whilst this nonsense goes on. It will send 2 messages : (1-students are more important than insane politics and (2: it will show the powers that be who the people will really vote for. I wouldn’t care which party I affiliated with, any party that sacrifices children and their basic rights doesn’t belong in my government. Period! If they won’t be allowed in tge schools, outdoor learning is always great.

  17. I’d bet there’s more than a few graduates who can’t FIND work as a teacher, and be more than happy to replace the “protestors” PERMANENTLY, so they can continue to claim how bad the world is, how tough they have it, and every other whine of how terrible their life has become.
    As “educators” you’d think they’d realize that a large part of the state doesn’t make NEAR their pay, or have all the perks of their positions (over fifty grand with three months off…) , and be happy in their good fortune to HAVE a job in their field.
    I’m not usually one to tell somebody to just shut the hell up, but these people don’t realize how nice they really have it…

  18. Break up the teachers union. The tenure crap has allowed to many BAD INCOMPETENT TEACHERS TO STAY EMPLOYED. It is sad they are allowed to keep poisoning kids to THEIR PERSONAL IGNORANT THINKING.

    • NO educator, at ANY level of education, should ever get tenure. As soon as they do they never do another’s day of work or anything to benefit a kid

  19. Here is what I’d do if President. All of those educators that take off May 1at for this protest. Can plan on looking for new jobs on May 2nd. This is not a scheduled vacation day, and you play hooky? Your gone, and from the teaching profession. Enough of playing games with these people. I thought you cared about the children? Well we are going to show we care about you too. In the best way we know how.

  20. If you look at the quality (or lack thereof) of kids in our schools today, and the liberal morons that are supposedly teaching them, then you’d come to the conclusion that them taking a day off from teaching is actually a bonus. Any amount of time that our brainwashed children spend “not” being indoctrinated by these morons is a good thing. If I still had school aged children, they definitely would not be going to public school.

  21. Every teacher that dies this should be FIRED…. And not a thing the union can do about it. Also tax payers STOP paying the school tax. Keep your kids at home and home school them, FACT home schoolers do better in test scores and college.

  22. Just another example of how AOC could care less about the American people including children’s education. The voters, parents of these children, will remember this action taken by the teachers on election day as they should.

  23. The stinking, filthy parasites known as Liberals have trashed an educational system that once was the envy of the rest of the world. Now we rank 17th. Once the teachers unionized, the quality of teaching declined rapidly except for that in private schools. As a former teacher, in the days before unionization, I advise all parents who can afford it to avoid public schools like the plague!

  24. ‪Expose, Boycott, Sue, prosecute and bring to justice all these deep state treasonous NAZI commie liberal Muslim demoncrats and RINOs post-haste,Patriots! Drain the rat infested swamp President Trump!‬

  25. I am so glad I ddo not have kids in school today. They learn to hate America and embrace the Muslim culture as good. I would home school my kids if they were school age. It is disgraceful what they re filling their heads with in school these days. I pray the voters wake up and vote these ignorant Sociaalist demons out of our American government.

  26. In their attempt to strum up support for AOC’s democrats, they are alienating the voters . . . and thus, they will end up doing the exact opposite of their desired outcome!!!

  27. the teachers” union is the most anti-American, if not pro-commie group in America and their members are molding young impressionable people to follow their dangerous “logic.” They should be investigated and held accountable for their unAmerican views. They shouldn’t be teaching our kids. Let them move to China or N. Vietnam.

  28. Her plan won’t work period! America is waking up big time and she’s pulled enough crap that everybody can see she crazy, racist, evil, wet brained, drug filled body!! May Day is when kids go door to door with baskets made out of construction paper and put flowers and candy in it and go to houses, ring the bell, and say happy May Day as symbolizes first day of spring growing up. We knew it wasn’t first day of spring but springtime tribute. To be NICE AND NEIGHBORLY!!
