From The “GEE, IMAGINE THAT” File For Jan 8 2015

One thing we strive to do here at N&F is to follow the money trail. Sometimes that can lead to the STRANGEST of bedfellows.

One only has to see the connection, which in this case is pure, unadulterated communism, to understand these connections. Eric Owens with The Daily Caller.com makes that connection.

 

Nation’s Largest Teachers Union Massively Funds Wisconsin COP-HATING PROTESTS

THIS summed it up perfectly.

The National Education Association is heavily involved in supporting a militant group in Wisconsin that spends its time and energy organizing angry anti-police protests.

The group is Wisconsin Jobs Now, EAGnews.org reports.

Wisconsin Jobs Now fancies itself as a fighter against income inequality. Strangely, though, the feature piece of propaganda currently emblazoned on its website discusses the death of Dontre Hamilton, a black man who was killed by an aggressive white police officer.

Wisconsin Jobs Now has variously declared that the state’s police officers are racists, killers and animals, according to EAGnews.

The NEA is a major financial donor for Wisconsin Jobs Now. The teachers union — the largest in the United States — gave $125,000 to Wisconsin Jobs Now in 2014 alone.

The other major contributor to the radical group is the Service Employees International Union.

However, the generous $125,000 contribution from the NEA is the only income or revenue Wisconsin Jobs Now reported in 2014, according to a Department of Labor report.

The radical union group is using that $125,000 in NEA seed money to wreak anti-police havoc across Wisconsin.

For example, Wisconsin Jobs Now has organized, participated in or publicized “die-ins” (where protesters collectively get on the ground and pretend to be dead) as well as an illegal blockade of a major Milwaukee freeway during rush hour.

The nonprofit outfit took credit for creating the Dec. 19 traffic jam, notes EAG. Many protesters were arrested during that incident.

While Wisconsin Jobs Now expressly connects these protest events to Hamilton’s death, it’s not clear how the protests actually relate to any improvement in the ability of state residents to find employment rapidly.

Hamilton, the man whose death set off the protesting, died after Milwaukee police officer Christopher Manney shot him a large number of times. Manney had found Hamilton, 31, sleeping on a park bench in April 2013. The two ended up scuffling before the fatal shooting.

Hamilton had a history of mental illness.

Manney has since been fired, but no charges have been or will be filed against him.

The full report (from the perspective of the Milwaukee County district attorney) concerning the deadly altercation between Hamilton and Hanney is available from the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

Hamilton’s death at the hands of the police has been a rallying cry for months among Wisconsin’s die-hard leftist activists.

After the district attorney announced the decision not to press charges against Hanney, Wisconsin Jobs Now protesters tried and mostly failed to rabble-rouse in downtown Milwaukee. Their chants included “Don’t arrest me! Arrest the police!”

In November, shortly after the world-historical losses suffered by the Democrats her union heartily supported, NEA president Lily Eskelsen García sought to rally support for new laws forcing taxpayers to foot all or part of the college tuition costs for anyone who becomes a teacher.

The NEA and other national and local teachers unions suffered massive rejection at the polls in the 2014 midterm elections despite pouring over $100 million into congressional and down-ballot races.

Here are a few choice Wisconsin Jobs Now protest tweets of recent vintage:

Imagine that. The NEA, the nation’s largest TEACHERS union, is funding anti-police protesters. You would THINK the idiot leftist anarchists running this union, ESPECIALLY for the Wisconsin members, would concern itself more with trying to PRESERVE teachers’ positions and salaries, than funding radicals.

When one compares basic union philosphy to the basic philosophy of  “leaders” of these idiotic protesters, whom, over HALF have NO FRIGGING CLUE as to WHAT or WHY they are protesting, the similarities are stark. The unions despise capitalism, a sure fire clue to their belief in a communistic system, the protest leaders have a disdain for a civil, organized, rule-of-law society, another tenet of communism, as it relates to breakdowns in society that ONLY they can “fix” by clamping down on freedoms in all areas of public life.

It should come as no surprise that the unions, seeing their influence wane remarkably, would fund these asshats to remain relevant. They still have not given up, along with their Mess-iah, The Won, Barack Hussein Obama, to “fundamentally transform” America into that old Soviet style communism, with THEM running it.

What they FAIL to realise is, once the “goal” has been “achieved”, THEY will become slaves to the system as is everyone ELSE, with THEIR “freedoms” severely curtailed as well. I guess the term “useful fools” strikes no chord with them.

Back in the day, I used to run up that I-43 corridor through Milwaukee quite often. I may have “retired” too soon. It would be a BLAST to see these lunatics trying to “stop” a couple hundred tractor trailers grossing 80,000 lbs a piece, closing in at about 70 mph.

OK, who would win ? THESE, going about 70 mph, or ….

…. THESE ? Moonbat communist protesters. You can damn well bet THESE morons would be PRAYING for “police protection” if those trucks didn’t stop.

CLYDE. Enjoying watching the NEA make a BIGGER fool of the entire organization.

    Lay ’em in the road and call them “Bumps in the road”,,, or “Speed Bumps”,,, and keep right on rollin’
    Idjits~!

    I had the same thought – the union trying to stay relevant and using commie tactics to do it.

    Why is the NEA donating money to a jobs group and not to schools or school associated groups? And where do they get the big bucks like that to donate? I think we already know the answer to that, don’t you?

    Outside of being a black/white thing, the shooting-protesting incident sounds a lot like Ferguson where the protestors ignore the facts and clog the roads anyway.

    • Clyde says:

      The “jobs group” looks a LOT like a front group to me, Kathy. And yes, we DO know that answer. Good comment, and thanks.

    Remember when Andy Stearn was head of the SEIU? He made a lot of visits to the Obamaboy. Anyway he once said on TV for all to hear~and I quote~ “Workers of the world unite, it’s not just a slogan anymore.”
    Those of us who know Jack Schitt about anything recognize this as a communst party slogan. Anyone who is in that union is either stupid for supporting it or a communist themselves (likely both) and should be of no further use to America.
    I put that statement in a category with George H.W. Bush’s one about the “New World Order” and Obama’s many like “a civilian security force just as strong and wll funded as the US military” and “we’re not a Christian nation anymore.
    How many other unions have commie leadership and how many members of those unions are aware?
    Thanks for bringing this article to our attention. It needs to be spread far and wide.

    • Clyde says:

      You know damn well Stern was a HUGE Obama “bag man”. No question the vast majority of union “leaders” are card-carriers, and if not, at the very least, sympathizers. Good comment as usual, I.R., and thanks.

    Thanks Eric! I believe like you, exposing the money trail Behind the tools (umm protestors) is Far more important than attacking the ones being incited. I also believe the more we expose the shadows for the real purpose, the more we can understand and counter successfully mayhem they attempt to cause then Maybe the lemmings will wake up and stop following the sharks. Although I hold out little hope in that regard since following blindly and accepting whatever is fed to them seems to be the order of the day. What a waste is a poorly used mind even if it is a supposedly educated one.

  5. Liz entrekin says:

    I would also love to see not just the money trail but a tie in on people to an organized long time sedition plan. It has come to my attention that many problems of today and people like Obama, Holder and others began their journey from roughly the same location and places. I find it interesting to tie them together and would like to see how and Who they partnered with to expose treason at its core. Money trails are only part of the whole but certainly an excellent start.

    • I.R. Wayright says:

      I think your trail will go back in time 60+ years to the communist government of the former Soviet Union. Khruschev told us we would one day accept communism here without them firing a shot. Looks like they are succeeding. Lots of boxes checked off on their plans, no?

    • Clyde says:

      Liz, welcome to Hardnox and Friends. Thanks for taking the time to read and comment. I’m working on doing just exactly what you suggested. The website Open Secrets.org is GREAT for untangling leftist spider webs. Gunny G. in Alaska at the Anti-Liberal Zone a while back had a Soros flow chart showing where the tentacles of that bastard’s money reached. There is ZERO question that pusillaminous prick is behind a LOT of this crap.

  6. CW says:

    I love that sign, Clyde.

    Leftists love their groups and organizations because it gives them the ability to co-opt the power of individuals and harness that power into their pet agendas. Unions are all about that game, taking money from people of all political affiliations and effectively channeling it to their one preferred party. It’s a brilliant trick if you can get away with it, and they have until recently. It will be interesting to see if there’s any pushback from the teachers’ union whose rank and file members might naturally be more sympathetic with their police union counterparts than with the “Jobs Now” trouble-makers.

    BTW, I wish someone would drive a semi through the crowds that deliver their own brand of terrorism by preventing people from using streets, highways, bridges or whatever. When Chris Christie’s people caused a traffic jam they were run out of town and it was big news. When the professional marchers do it, suddenly no one has a problem with it.

  7. Hardnox says:

    Take a bow bro. Great commentary and spot on!

    I.R. nailed it. The unions prove daily that they are nothing more than an appendage of the communist party.
