Thank Randi and Lily for Their Roles in Electing Donald

Not surprisingly, Weingarten and Garcia have learned nothing about the effects of their dictatorial decisions in 2015 that effectively killed the political enthusiasm among teachers.  Weingarten and Garcia , who refused "to endorse Bernie Sanders while grossly exaggerating Hillary’s viability and worthiness for top office, share responsibility for the Trump victory."

Randi Weingarten continues to defend their undemocratic and autocratic choice of corrupt elitist, Hillary Clinton:
The AFT and most of the American labor movement endorsed Hillary for President, both in the Democratic primaries and the general election, as the candidate that we believed had the best chance to win the 2016 election and enact a progressive policy agenda. Against a Republican candidate who sorely lacked the experience, judgment and temperament to be President, Hillary Clinton was the most experienced and qualified candidate of the last century, and her election as the first woman President would have been an historic advance for the cause of gender equality. She brought a lifetime of successful work on behalf of progressive causes to the campaign, and under her leadership and in partnership with Bernie Sanders and his campaign, the Democratic Party adopted the most progressive platform of its history in 2016.  Clinton had a particular knack for translating ideas and aspirations for change into government policies that make a difference.


  1. They created a phantasmagorical Clinton that never has, nor ever will have, existed.

    As horrible as Trump is, Clinton was unable to turn out voters, particularly young voters of color, mainly because many long ago tired of Clinton's neoliberalism and unhinged warmongering.

  2. They haven't learned anything because they're part of the establishment, just like the DNC. They think they already know everything, so there is nothing to learn. Besides, they think admitting they were wrong would make them look weak.
