Scott Walker’s arch-nemeses, members of the Wisconsin Teachers’ Union, are pissed. And demoralized. And, it seems, somewhat bored now that their so-called “revolution” failed to become, well, even slightly transformative. So they are packing up their bags and heading South to the state of Arizona.
You might be pondering, why the hell are they migrating to Arizona? Because there’s ground there that’s ripe for the picketing. They already created all their picket sticks, so might as well put them to good use somewhere else. That’s my conclusion.
So what are they protesting? The local school board’s contentious decision to bar schools from providing Mexican-American studies courses — which, note, are supremely political and generally harbor an agenda of radicalizing students on the basis of race. So yeah, that’s where the Wisconsin Teachers’ Unions are planting their sticks. The Arizona Daily Independent has more:
A Wisconsin teacher advised her “brothers and sisters” and the TUSD Governing Board members that this is “a revolution” and called for “solidarity” at last night’s Governing Board meeting.
Professor Anita Fernandez advised the Board that that they are in town with a “full commitment to bring back Mexican American Studies here and elsewhere across the country.”
The radicals have branded their political effort “Freedom Summer,” after a civil rights effort in summer 1964.
There’s not a whole lot to comment on, other than it’s another OWS-like “revolution” that will fail to gain any meaningful traction.
