Those at the Capitol in Madison Are Bad Teachers
Thousands of Wisconsin teachers have left their jobs and their duty. This is bad. Worse, they all appear with and many participate with SEIU and other union thugs, sent to Madison by the Thug in Chief himself. The vile vicious content of the signs they carry say it all. It is evil. Look Here for examples. Furthermore, many have taken training on intimidating thugery from the thugs.
No sane person could expect them to be good in the classroom. They will exhibit their contempt for their jobs, their students and their country. Schools in Wisconsin, like schools everwhere, should understand most parents will not want their children immersed in such virtue-less values.
What about the good teachers? Where are they? Are there good teachers in these schools? We must assume there are many good teachers there. I am willing to believe a majority of them are good. Here’s the question, can they be good by just doing or saying nothing —just by being there? They can’t. They have a responsibility to be difference makers. More directly, they are responsible for their part of America. Paraphrasing Ayn Rand, Pamela Geller says, “You can avoid evil, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding evil.” You recall the profound and famous Edmund Burke pronouncement, “All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.”
Let me finish by going Christian. Jesus told us in His Sermon on the Mount:
Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.
Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven. (Matthew 5”13-16)
Join me. Ask good teachers in government schools to take responsibility for their part of America. In Wisconsin, yes, but do it wherever you are. The issue is hot in Ohio and Indiana. We must understand this conflict between good and evil exists in every government school. Good teachers must step forward now.
