“The National Education Association and the American Federation of Teachers have devolved into diabolical, anti-children, anti-American, pro-Democrat Party, largely Marxist operations,” conservative radio host Mark Levin stated Wednesday.
This was in response to the NEA’s recent adoption of an action to “fight back” against those who oppose critical race theory (CRT). AFT president Randi Weingarten has also pledged to defend teachers who teach CRT.
“These unions have dumbed down American education; they are now destroying and brainwashing our children; they are undermining the country while you and I are paying confiscatory property taxes to fund the whole damn thing,” said Levin.
Below is a transcript of the segment:
Mark Levin: Well, it’s abundantly clear to anybody with two brain cells to rub together, that would exclude Joe Biden and company, that the National Education Association and the American Federation of Teachers have devolved into diabolical, anti-children, anti-American, pro-Democrat Party, largely Marxist operations. And you and I are paying for all of it. They call it public education and for years and years, we were told that people are underpaid and yet they have the best medical plans on the face of the earth, which include eyeglasses and so forth, the best pension plans on the face of the earth, and the best various step increases and other increases when it comes to salaries.
Now, I don’t mind true American teachers who teach, you know, straight English and math and so forth, getting their due. But I do mind paying propagandists, who are dumb as a door knob, to teach our children radical, Marxist, racist, anti-American propaganda because so many of them are actually incapable of teaching English and science and mathematics and so forth. These unions have dumbed down American education; they are now destroying and brainwashing our children; they are undermining the country while you and I are paying confiscatory property taxes to fund the whole damn thing – school buildings, school administrators, teachers, everything that goes along with it.
And if you dare to rally and go to these school board meetings they act like, “What are you doing here?” And the reason is they’ve had this cabal inside a cocoon going on for decades. For decades, we haven’t known what they’ve done. Now, how do I know what they’re doing? Because I was on a school board for three-and-a-half years as a very young man and I saw it from the inside. It’s utterly corrupt. The school boards basically work for the teachers union, either because they agree with them ideologically or they’re afraid of a strike or a walk-out. And that is the problem with public sector teacher unions.
