Chicago Teachers Union president promises ‘Murder Mayor’ Rahm Emanuel, ‘It’s not over’

Chicago Teachers Union president Karen Lewis took to the streets today to lead a rally against “Murder Mayor” Rahm Emanuel’s plan to close 53 city schools. When she says she’s doing it for the kids, would she lie? Well, as EAG News points out, she might encourage teachers to lie to parents now and then, but that’s only to make the students her “hostages.” No, really.

Who else was present for today’s hostage negotiations? Jesse Jackson, of course, as well as members of Occupy and a “pretty solid anarchist contingent.”

Mayor Emanuel might have insisted for once he’s interested in “ideas, not insults,” but “Mayor Downhill” isn’t pulling any punches.

    It’s obvious when Lewis makes a statement like “it’s not over”, she’s referring to lunch.

    Only thing good in Chicago is Leon’s BBQ on Archer Ave.

    • SpinMeNot

      From the looks of her, she’s eaten there more than once …

      • r_coplin2001

        Now don’t be mean she only has been their one time and has never left Leon’s BBQ.

    • lillymckim

      Looking at the photos of these SEIU Thugs above tells me one thing for sure they are all very well fed.
      It’s all about “feeding them” and their wallets not about “the kids” its never been about “the kids”. They are all obese!

    She wants to keep the students hostage so she doesn’t have to chase them down for her next meal …

    That woman looks she ate an entire Kindergarten class and now wants dessert. Throw her a ham in a can and she’ll go back into her lair.

    • Kimihiro Watanuki

      LOL… this gave me the laugh I needed today.

    • mdtljt

      Hey Spin….when you throw it try to clock her between the eyes…maybe it’ll knock some sense into her….bbbwwwawahahahahaha….I know, ain’t no knocking any kind of sense into these folks, bless their hearts…

    Why are anarchists protesting closing public schools?

    • John Thomas “Jack” Ward III

      Fifty-three fewer indoctrination centers, that’s why… ZING!! POW!! Jawamax 8<{D} #NoBrainerAlert!

  • https://twitter.com/Webnetcity webnetcity

    They are closing the schools Ms. Lewis because after years of wasting millions of taxpayer dollars, you and others like you have failed to achieve the most fundamental requirement for which you were hired… to educate our children…

    Instead the kids in these districts are dropping out in record numbers
    and dropping like flies on the streets after being shot down and killed
    in the murder capital of the country.

    Face it Ms. Lewis..you’re a failure…
    You care more about getting paid than you do about these kids…
    and no amount of screaming or protesting is going to change that.

    Here’s a tip…
    Accept the reality that 53 schools need to close…
    deal with it…your gravy train has run out.

    Then the next thing that needs to close is your mouth…
    It always seems to be open…
    (I think that’s part of your problem)

    The last time I saw something that big…
    I was in the Navy and we were trying to sink it.

        You are part of the problem. Does that not give you any remorse or regret?

    • louie4465

      Well said Web Net. Your wisdom with the facts not rhetoric is appreciated.

    • Moogiechan

      I hope she’s not in charge of foisting Moochelle’s lunchroom agenda on Chicago’s kids…

  • Scott Carroll

    Ah it makes me all giddy when liberals are hoist on their own petard. The Tribunal of Tolerance has pronounced you guilty Rahm Emanuel! I suggest you get yourself a good attorney, preferably one with some experience in Race Card Law.

  • r_coplin2001

    Teachers Unions have failed their students as I bet its way less then 70% of High School Students that have graduated from High School and are ready for college.

    • Don

      70%? Are you kidding me?

    • trixiewoobeans

      Last year, during a strike, they coerced students to come out and protest. One student’s sign read, “Sav Are Teacher!” Yes, they’re THAT BAD!

      • tredglx

        They’re worse than ‘that bad.’

        I knew a group of CPS teachers back in the ’90s. They were sweating bullets back when CPS started requiring teachers to prove they were competent to teach their subject, as well as general education competence, or lose their positions.

        Get this: over HALF of the teachers I knew HIRED TUTORS to get them proficient in their subjects, and ALL of them used tutors to improve their general competence.

        If I lived in Chicago (and I am WAY smarter than to do something that stupid), I’d send my kids to private or Catholic schools.

        • trixiewoobeans

          The only reason they’re getting away with this sh*t is because so many parents are two-income, or single-parent families, and they can’t take time off work to care for, or afford care for, their kids when these Klowns strike. They know they have everyone over a barrel. It’s financial hijacking, is what it is. And…a HUGE percentage of those teachers DO send their kids to private school! Chicago teachers don’t want THEIR kids going to Chicago public schools!

    • trixiewoobeans

      And yes, those figures are bogus. Closer to 70% don’t graduate and go to college.

  • Don

    After you pay off the city unions, voter raised from the dead, sanitation unions , councilmen, Springfield, well just how much money do you think there is?

  • 1SkepticalChick

    Sounds like she’s making terroristic threats against the Mayor…crickets…

  • trixiewoobeans

    “It’s not over!” she screamed, at the all-you-can-eat buffet.

    • pinkelephant22

      LOL .. good one

  • kim

    Funny how Jesse Jackson always shows up wherever their are union members screaming and carrying communist party u.s.a. signs, isn’t it?

  • ceemack

    Don’t go away mad, Ms. Lewis…just go away.

    • nc

      No, she exposes the ugliness of the Teachers Unions, and I’m not talking about her appearance. People, especially libs, need to be aware of the damage they’re doing.

      • mdtljt

        Unfortunately most will never take off the lib/prog blinkers to see the entire picture…they’re only worried about themselves and don’t give a mouse fart in a high wind about the kids they’ve failed miserably…

  • Kimihiro Watanuki

    My money is on Mayor Ballerina. He’s a lot tougher than these union blow hards. Expect Lewis to get some uncomfortable attention soon. Also, they have the nerve to wonder what Oblamer isn’t there? Oh please… Who do you think he’s afraid of: Mayor Ballerina or the Lewis and Jackson clown show?

  • beebop1952

    Dontcha just love “shared sacrifice” from the point of view of the unions? Bet that woman wouldn’t touch Moooochy’s “school lunch.”

  • peteee363

    those were not red shoes, they were red kankle holders!

    • lillymckim

      Literally laughing out loud.
      Karen Lewis is a diabetic in the making. She is a poster child for diabetes if she doesn’t have diabetes already I would be very surprised.

      • SpinMeNot

        Not to make light of a … um … her obesity but … I hope she lives a long life and passes peacefully in her sleep. Else, if she’s out an about and goes down, well, that video of a beach in the northwest, high explosives, cheers of elation followed by screams of terror …

        Just sayin’ …

        (and yes I did say “make light of her obesity” … I’m a bad person, I’ve told you all before).

  • lillymckim

    Karen Lewis needs to join Michele Obamas Lets Move Food Boot Camp for dummies.
    Does her Big Union Golden Parachute insurance premiums go up with her girth?

    • SpinMeNot

      With a good number of jumps under my harness, I would recommend at least 3, and preferably 5 “Golden Parachutes” when you drop her … It would probably be a good thing to use 2 extraction chutes and extra heavy rigging as well. I’d also recommend sedating her, if she gets spooked during the flight or on her way out, the C-19 could be in serious trouble. Finally, you might consider asking for volunteers for the cargo handling team. If she gets loose, they won’t stand a chance.

      I know, I’m a bad person.

      • Larry Mellette

        Why would you want to give her a chute?

        • SpinMeNot

          Dagnabbit … I hate when I miss the obvious. And that sir is a damn fine point.

          Because triggering the New Madrid fault line would affect Indiana, Missouri, Arkansas, Kentucky, Tennessee and Mississippi, along with Illinois?

    If you’re going to fight for something, have it be something worth fighting for.

    Like schools that perform and create results, and for teachers, that would be being part of the solution.

    Picket signs do squat.

  • sunnychicago

    The level of stupid….I..just can’t even say any more.
    Lewis is a joke. And she is part of the problem. Period.
    And I can’t help but think of a pelican when I see her :-/

  • Mister A

    This is what happens when you go on strike for more pay, then get the raise you wanted and you get shut down 6 months later. But… but… it’s for the children! Ya, right.

  • Baba Ghanoush

    The only thing these CTU protest are good for is F-ing up my commute. If the teachers were for the kids, they would get off the street so I could get to work to feed mine.

  • Axelgreaser

    DEMOCRATS IN CHICAGO GET GRADE ‘F-‘ as custodians of our children’s education. Their outcome in life continues to be interwtwined with the likes of BOBBY RUSH (yes, THAT Bobby Rush from the 60’s), JACKSON SR. (welfare and race hustler) AND KAREN LEWIS (is she for, or agin’ children?) the three clumped together amid a sea of S.E.I.U. signs and images of Barack Obama’s stooge, Rham Emanuel. Makes you wonder, what does this have to do with readin’, writin’ and arithmetic, all this struggle and stife based in, yes…the less and less mighty dollar. In fact, if you didn’t know better it would look like any other protest now dotting the landscape of America. It could be OWS, in fact. In fact, they are all related of course. But here in Chicago Emanuel’s face looks a little uneasy affixed those picket signs held high by screeching anarchists, steaming horse droppings and a sour looking Jackson Sr., father of yet another jailed Chicago political crook Jackson Jr. make me think of my states crown jewel city Chicago, the first city in Illinois that I became aware of in 1955 as a small child, holding onto my mothers hand after disembarking from the California Zephyr in sprawling Union Station. Seeing Chicago for the first time when you’re under 4′ is breathtaking and how and I recall how awed I was by by the Wrigley Building. Now I see Jackson’s smug face and I feel sad for Chicago, the great buildings drop away for me and I just see little men grabbing for a piece of the great city, ripping it to shreds killing it off with greed. Because Chicago and my state of Illinois are broke. Years after the civil rights movement, this man Jackson is still a part of the turmoil of Chicago’s evolution from great to seethng masses of people for whom the chickens have come home to roost. Politicians lies and powerful teacher’s unions and the SEIU out in force not only objecting to being told they have become unaffordable, that they’ve broken the bank, but always wanting more and somewhere in between the Children of Chicago continue to lose and lose and lose and lose. They’re actually a joke to Karen Lewis. That’s how brazen they are. Well, Rham, you wanted the job and who better than a greedy, grasping Democrat to get it in the end. Right up your end. No wonder we hayseeds in downstate Illinois wish the Department of Education would go away and the children would once again become the focus, not need to be ‘conned’ by an educator like Karen Lewis and want to learn and be taught properly. As is is, those crowds of politicians and activists in Chicago, ‘fighting for the kids’ are just grinding them up under their feet as they use them for a paycheck most of them don’t even deserve, considering what they’re turning out at the other end.

    But, it’s all about the kids, right? Right.

  • wwbdinct

    Sorry – i just can’t focus on this story. Only on the pictures. Who are the fat and greedy pigs in this country? Every last one of these Chicago thugs are massively obese. How are they to be “role models” for the youth in Obama’s America?

  • BlueStateRepub

    Karen Lewis’s weekly food bill could keep a dozen schools open.

  • Right Wired

    Love to see liberals go after each other.

  • Guest

    Are these protesters anti-Semitic for going against Rahm?

    Also, why do all these pictures of union people feature ones who are overweight? Does the SEIU always order PLUS-size shirts for these occasions?

    Kind of goes against the stereotype of “tubby” conservatives as Letterman thinks.

  • Karl Winrich

    The teachers unions ARE the problem but they are just too blind to see that they are the ones who are failing, not our kids.
