Lib pilloried after blasting ‘right wing douches’ for not backing 2-week pause on school re-openings

A very “irrational” left-wing zealot is being pilloried on Twitter for talking trash about the so-called “right wing douches” who’ve been standing up to the “selfishness” of some of America’s teachers.

At issue is that some teachers have once again begun calling for remote learning despite the widespread availability of the coronavirus vaccine and booster, in addition to the fact that the Omicron variant is significantly milder than previous strains of the virus.

Multiple studies have shown that remote learning has been disastrous for children and parents alike, particularly children and parents who are minorities.

“Although educational disparities already existed for Black, Latino and low-income Maryland students before the COVID-19 pandemic, they have only gotten more jarring since classes went online, according to researchers,” D.C. radio station WTOP reported in November of 2020, citing a student from the University of Maryland School of Public Health.

“Virtual school is fostering isolation in children and stress in parents, according to a new study from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The findings confirm previous research into the deleterious emotional and physical effects of keeping children out of school,” Yahoo News reported months later in March of 2021.

Plus, studies have shown that for children, “the risk of COVID causing severe illness and hospitalization is much lower compared to adults,” as noted by Harvard Medical School. This especially holds true for the milder Omicron variant.

But facts such as these do not appear to matter to the likes of National Educators United, an allegedly grassroots teachers’ union rooted in left-wing politics: support for so-called “equity,” support for illegal migration, support for eliminating charter schools and standardized testing, etc.

On New Year’s Eve, the group posted to Twitter a petition calling for the federal government to institute a nationwide two-week pause on in-person learning “at minimum”:

While the petition purported to be about protecting everybody, it provoked widespread backlash from frustrated parents and even some teachers who’re convinced that what this is really about is teachers once again exploiting the pandemic for gain.

View some of the backlash below:

Critics say this is just another example of teachers trying to exploit the pandemic just like the Chicago Teachers Union vice president seen in the latter tweet. This woman, Sarah Chambers, hopped a flight to Puerto Rico for a vacation in January of 2020 at the same time that she was loudly advocating for Chicago’s schools to remain closed.

This was no one-time incident. Speaking on Fox News that same month, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, a Republican, noted that “all across the country,” teachers’ union members and bosses were “publicly oppos[ing] returning to school while engaging in acts of brazen hypocrisy.”

But it gets worse. Previous reporting shows that large quantities of the COVID relief funds that were doled out to schools as per the demands of teachers’ unions were funneled into the hands of teachers as “thank you” bonuses.

This is some pretty shady stuff, yet according to left-wing Twitter user Molly Shah, the real “douches” are those who have chosen to stand up against these unions, particularly National Educators United.

Below is how she responded to the backlash that was directed at NEU:

It’s as if she’d automatically dismissed all of the valid criticism. And indeed, she quickly made it so that only those whom she follows or has mentioned could reply, therefore cutting herself off from the criticism now being directed her way.

While she’s certainly entitled to shield herself from this criticism, the world is equally entitled to keep the criticism coming, regardless of whether or not she chooses to heed it.
