For the children? Michael Moore salivates over teachers skipping work in Michigan

Well, it wouldn’t be a Michigan union-orchestrated protest without hypocritical union-buster Michael Moore tossing in his two cents.

As Twitchy reported yesterday, thousands of public school students in Michigan are home today because teachers decided to call in “sick” so they could throw tantrums about right-to-work legislation at the state capitol.

As parents scrambled to find last-minute daycare, Michigan teachers ignored their students to cheer on Dem politicians warning right-to-work legislation would usher in a bloodbath. Three cheers for new tone!

Michael Moore thinks it’s awesome, natch. Citizens who believe in workplace freedom and care about education? Not so much.

    Moore disgusts me, as do the greedy unions. >.<

      Never did bother watching any of his films. This is another reason why.

    Just like Pelosi’s Obamacare logic (“we have to pass it to find out what’s in it”), they have to stop teaching the children in order to teach the children.

    Michael Moore is proof that @#@£ sex produces children.

    I was tempted to go to Lansing today too and call out some of these teachers… but then I remembered I have responsibilities that I had to meet today. *Sigh* it’s so sad that so many teachers threw away their responsibilities to throw a hissy fit.

    Moore would be stepping on his crank — if he could find it.

    Moore salivates over anything: rotting feces, blow up sheep dolls covered in gravey, photos of Hitler, anything.

    Well with the teachers union in Michigan it probably is better that they aren’t there to teach the children.

    Well since only 7% of the Detroit 8th graders are deemed literate, I’d guess the teachers won’t be missed much anyway

    7% of Detroit 8th graders can read proficiently. Seems to me that kids in Michigan don’t learn much when their horrible teachers are in the classroom, much less when they’re not. What a waste of taxpayer money. The poor kids suffer, and most parents don’t have a choice. They’re just at the mercy of the union bosses and corrupt politicians, forced to pay exorbitant amounts of money for a terrible product. Public unions need to have their power significantly cut, or they need to go the way of the dodo.

    The democrats and unions have left Detroit with barely a heartbeat. They are the most selfish, ignorant and vile citizens of a once great city, a cancer that continues destroying healthy cells until they are gone, leaving the cancer to die with it. If there are no jobs out there, can you still hear a union thug cursing?

    Moore is a true patriot; this author has a twisted view of the world. Republicans are so out of touch. They learned nothing from the last election. They will pay in spades in the next election and the next and the next until they are gone if they don’t reject the far right wing anti-woman, anti-immigrant, anti-minority, anti-working class agenda.
