Arizona teachers union tells members to write fake COVID-19 obituaries

Teachers’ unions across America are vehemently opposed to reopening public schools — they want to continue the COVID-19 lockdown of schools, although they are in favor of #BLM protests.

Who knew the Wuhan virus is so discriminating that it’ll only infect children attending schools, but not if they participate in public protests?

Arizona Educators United (AEU) is a political activist group for school teachers.

On its Facebook page, this is how AEU describes itself:

…a coalition of teachers, education support professionals, administrators, and those who care about the state of education in Arizona…. This is a group for organizing Arizona educators for action. 

Founded on March 4, 2018, AEU claims to have more than 45,100 members, but is a “private group” on Facebook — “Only members can see who’s in the group and what they post” — which makes one wonder why it is so secretive.

AEU’s hashtag is #REDforED, and encourages its members to wear red in protest events. Red is the color of communists and communist parties.

AEU’s Facebook page gives two websites for the group:

  1. http://arizonaeducatorsunited.com/: A dead link that brings you this message: “404 Page not found”.
  2. http://redfored.com: A website called “Arizona Parents & Allies United” — a public group with 14.8k members.

Previously, Arizona Governor Douglas Ducey, a Republican, had ordered that the state’s public schools re-open on August 17 from the COVID-19 lockdown, which was opposed by many teachers as too soon.

On July 23, 2020, Ducey issued an executive order with a revised plan to reopen the schools (azcentral.):

  • The Arizona Department of Health Services is tasked with setting a metric for reopening schools by August 7, using health data. For example, New York will reopen schools in communities where the daily COVID-19 infection rate remains 5% or lower over 14 days.
  • When schools reopen, everyone will be required to wear masks, with some exceptions for students.
  • Schools will be required to reopen for on-site learning on Aug. 17 for students who have nowhere else to go. That means school districts must open at least one site for students to go, but do not have to open every school or require every teacher to show up to work in-person.
  • Schools must begin instruction on the planned first day of school. If they cannot open in-person safely, then instruction must happen virtually on that first day and beyond.   
  • Whether schools reopen or not, teachers are guaranteed their full salary for the school year, with an additional $370 million in federal CARES Act money for schools.

Arizona Educators United is so opposed to reopening schools that the group is resorting to deceit — it is encouraging its members to write fake obituaries to Governor Ducey to protest his reopening order.

Cory A. DeAngelis is an adjunct scholar at the Cato Institute, director of school choice at the non-profit Reason Foundation, and executive director of the Educational Freedom Institute.

Yesterday, August 2, referring to Arizona Educators United, DeAngelis tweeted that “An Arizona teachers union is telling their members to write fake obituaries to the governor to protest reopening schools,” and is circulating this template for the fake obits:

These are the people who are educating your children.

These fucks held schools hostage a year ago, and they are doing it again.

I remember the “Red for Ed” campaign a couple years ago. I knew right away it was communist. They were able to get ALL the ‘civil servant’ unions to do their bidding. It’s absolutely disgraceful. The police and fire fighter here are all in on it and I think it’s safe to say that they had no idea of its true meaning and intent.

I certainly cannot speak for anyone else, but the very idea that those who are teaching vulnerable children are sleazy, dishonest, deceitful individuals–and they are the very ones who are instilling values, morals, etc. in the minds of our children basically one third of the time! This is a scam on their part, of course they don’t want to return to the classroom, or participate in “on-line teaching,” they will receive the same amount of money if they sit on their butts, eating bon-bons and watching TV. I think the writing is definitely on the wall–parents must request the public… Read more »

According to the American Federation of Teachers, they require “the average school will need an additional $1.2 million, or $2,300 per student, to open its doors safely.”

There is never enough money for them…

Maybe those officials and Union bosses should do like our President and donate their paychecks to cover that shortfall.

Never mind opening the doors safely at this point. Close the schools and refund taxpayers and give parents a tax credit for home schooling; and I don’t mean the “zoom classroom” version of homeschooling.

On another note… I’m shocked at the lack of parental uprising over privacy concerns using of zoom and other internet programs. Think about all the negative ramifications; isolation, hacking, predators, etc, that arise with online learning for innocent children.

Not only is the red symbolic of communism, but the rays in the background are too. Remember how they were used on Obama posters along with these other wondrous examples? This is so in your face.

The rays in the background come from the Arizona state flag.

Lana . . . Thank you so much for taking the time to point out these obvious symbols of communism. I also feel great disdain when I see signs here in Portland, OR for BLM, which show the black power fist, which I believe is also a communist sign. It just sickens me.

Public school teachers are employees of the people. Taxpayers pay their salaries. There should be no such thing as a union for public employees. All they do is DEMAND more money and less work. Most teachers today are ill-prepared and/or unfit to teach. Many parents have been so dumbed down they can’t home school, even if they could afford it. When are they going to get rid of the idiotic, confusing Communist Core? The future of this country is looking pretty dim, isn’t it?

Yeah,but you have to remember that when this Country was STARTED,it was people like US who got it done. It may look pretty bleak now,but as long as we don’t give up,the game ain’t over.

And that is how the mob of “woke” rioters came to be. The public schools and colleges have been indoctrinating their students instead of educating them. So we now have a ready army of Marx Youth (as in Hitler Youth).

TD . . . You are absolutely correct. It sorrows me so deeply, that amount my nieces–two of them (and their children) are rabid Socialists. They just cannot see any other way. These two women are far above average in intelligence, which they get from my brother who ranks in the “genius” category (somehow I got left out of that degree of intelligence–I am dismayed by the fact that they cannot see the dangers of Socialism/Communism. It will be the most proficient people who will “carry water” for the least proficient, or the lazy among society. So glad that I… Read more »
