The country’s second largest teacher’s union spent the day celebrating illegal immigration and bashing the Trump administration.
The second largest education union in the United States is the driving force behind a rally to protect illegal immigrants featuring presidential candidate Jay Inslee.
The American Federation of Teachers has been busy live tweeting their protest against so-called family separation at the U.S.-Mexico border, a policy started by President Barack Obama, aimed at separated illegal immigrant children from the individuals, sometimes human traffickers, purporting to be their parents when they are brought into the United States.
Dozens of members and employees of the union gathered, wearing t shirts with the union’s logo, to shout catchy slogans like “No hate, no fear, immigrants are welcome here!” and “Let our babies go!”
The American Federation of Teachers also used its verified Twitter account to accuse President Donald Trump of racism, writing “Mr. President, racism is not patriotism.”
It is not known whether they also consider President Obama to be racist.
At one point, Jay Inslee, the Democrat governor of Washington who is running for president on the platform of “defeating climate change” who is polling at close to zero per cent after he failed to distinguish himself in the first Democrat debate, joined the stage to bash the Trump administration.
“I have come here to speak with pride for a prideful nation,” said Inslee. “Here is what we are proud of, we are proud that educators in America speak out against oppression of children in America.” “We are proud that the state of Washington understands that diversity is a strength and not a weakness.”
Inslee also doubled down on a conspiracy theory popularized by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), claiming that migrant children are not given soap to wash themselves with.
“There is nothing to be proud of,” said Inslee, “for putting a 5-year-old kid in a cage and not giving them soap to clean themselves with.” At this point, for some unknown reason, a member of the crowd began laughing maniacally. Really.
For some reason, the American Federation of Teachers also occasionally posted a tweet in Spanish.
The American Federation of Teachers is a member of the country’s largest union federation, the American Federation of Labor, which recently posted a meme advocating beheading the CEO of Delta Airlines.
Unions seem to be increasing their march toward the complete destruction of all facets of American society, and even school children and classrooms are not safe.
