Your Business Blogger(R) has a degree in Education and was pressured by the National Education Association (NEA) to join the union years ago.
“The NEA is great when you get sued,” said the (very large) union rep.
I declined to teach and went into a less violent business: The Army.
The NEA is having their convention in Your Nation’s Capital next week. On July 2nd Pro-Life Educators and Students (PLEAS) will be conducting a rally at the Washington Convention Center from 10:00am and 2:00pm.
This press conference would have my attention even if I didn’t have 5 kids in the public schools or if Charmaine wasn’t speaking.
If Charmaine is speaking, you’ll want to listen. And this time we own the mic.
Charmaine is pictured above elbowing aside pro-abortion NOW President Kim Gandy at a open press conference in 2005. This is the only Women in Combat of which conservatives would approve.
PLEAS Coordinator Bob Pawson says, “Pro-Life teachers, school employees, parents, and students are invited to come pray and peacefully picket…Hillary Clinton and/or Barack Obama will surely address NEA’s 9,000 Delegates, as they did last year.”
Pro-Life teachers are concerned that their teacher union dues support and promote abortion and political candidates who tolerate the holocaust of the unborn.
Pawson explains, “Late-term abortionist George Tiller spoke at NEA headquarters for the [pro-abortion] Feminist Majority Foundation’s Leadership Conference in March 2008.” Watch the YouTube video here. Warning: graphic pictures of dead children.
No pro-life speakers or political candidates are supported by the NEA.
NEA union President, Reg Weaver is backing Obama; “every public school employee needs to get squarely behind the Obama candidacy.”
The union tells us,
“The National Education Association supports…the right to reproductive freedom” — the abortion code-words.
The “NEA supports the …Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade decision which now permits abortion on demand through nine months of pregnancy. The NEA is silent on the Dred Scott decision which also codified the ownership of one human being by another. The Dred Scott slave owner is the Roe v Wade feminist.
UPDATE: Press Conference at the Family Research Council building at 9:30 to 10:15am, then on to the presser at the Convention Center at 10:30am.
