Chicago Teachers Union says "The push to reopen schools is rooted in ...." Bet you can guess what they say it's rooted in.
· Dec 7, 2020 ·

The Chicago Teachers Union (CTU) is still trying to find a way to eliminate that annoying daily commute to the classroom not to mention all that personal interaction with, yuck, students.

It must be a reflex by now, a tic they can't control, but the union tweeted out this a day earlier.

They thought better of it and have since deleted the tweet,

And yet they retweeted this response to the tweet they deleted.

They're like drug addicts, they need to get that "white supremacy" hit any way they can.

You almost have to wonder what it's like in their homes.

Why didn't anyone take out the garbage?

Sorry, I forgot.



How is pushing to reopen schools rooted in sexism, racism, and misogyny, AND white supremacy?

It's not, unless they think hardship builds character.

Even the CTU themselves make no mention of sexism, racism or misogyny in announcing the filing of their injunction other than to note,

"We want our schools open as well, but we want it done safely, and not on the backs of the majority Black and Latinx students we serve."

What they do mention is a long list of demands regarding ventilation, PPE, smaller class sizes, and the like, all this in an environment that has proven to be one of the most unlikely vectors for virus outbreaks there is.

They eventually sent out a replacement tweet of sorts, recognizing that calling anyone who supports reopening schools sexists, racists, and misogynists, requires more "nuance."

I give them two days.
