Anonymous Group of Scott Walker Supporters Attacks ‘Radical’ Public School Teachers Who Criticized Education Cuts
The flyers, sent to parents across the Janesville School District, list hundreds of teachers and their annual salaries, along with a plea for residents to contact the school district administration and ask that their child “be assigned to a classroom taught by a non-radical teacher.” Another brochure claims that teachers “dumbed down” the curriculum and teach revisionist and “anti-American” history. “Parents, do you want your children to be free Americans or slaves to the United Nations?” it asks.

All of these false allegations appear to be in response to the union’s resistance to Walker’s draconian cuts to educational institutions around the state. As part of Act 10, the same measure that stripped away collective bargaining last year, some teachers have seen their salaries fall by as much as 30 percent. Teachers were also one of the largest constituencies to protest Walker’s budget at the state capital in Madison last year, and their unions have been outspoken supporters of the recall efforts.
I would not be surprised to find out that 99.9999 percent of the people who use the words communist, socialist or globalist can’t define the term.
