Teachers Union Head Seeks to Become Tin Pot Dictator

Randi Weingarten has delusions of grandeur. She thinks she should be given the power of a dictator instead of those of a teachers union president. Instead of just teaching kids, Weingarten imagines that she should become doctor, nanny, nutritionist, psychologist, and mother to every kid in America. She imagines that she should be given the care and feeding of all the nation’s kids.

Parents? Who need ‘em when we’ve got Mother Weingarten to trot them off to re-education camps where they will be fed and cared for on a daily basis?

Catch the arrogance, see this nanny-state despot lining up her dream state in her tiny, anti-family mind.

“Can you imagine a federal law that promoted community schools — schools that serve the neediest children by bringing together under one roof all the services and activities they and their families need?” Ms. Weingarten is expected to ask in the speech, a copy of which was provided by the union to The New York Times.

“Imagine schools that are open all day and offer after-school and evening recreational activities, child care and preschool, tutoring and homework assistance,” the speech reads. “Schools that include dental, medical and counseling clinics.”

Yes, imagine it. Imagine the billions of dollars needed to bring all these services from government to kids. Imagine the further destruction of the family as it happens, too.

This arrogant woman’s ideas are no less a usurpation of the role of the family, an abrogation of supreme power over our kids unto herself, and an amazing expansion of government power including the bloated budget to do so.

This is a dangerous, anti-American game this woman is playing. But, it reveals the oppressive idea of the role of government indicative of Democrats. They are nothing if not pure Stalinists.
