In North Carolina, the radical Marxist agitators have stooped to using schoolchildren to disseminate pro-union propaganda.
A line was crossed tonight in Holly Springs, NC by the North Carolina Association of Educators (NCAE). A flyer for a planned Teacher “Walk In” was distributed to kids at Holly Ridge Elementary school in their ‘take-home folders’ today. This “Walk In” has been talked about in the media a bit but nothing hit as close to home as this did. This flyer had no business being ferried home by our children...
...The flyer has a website on it: www.Organize2020.com... This is a site affiliated with the NCAE. It is almost purely politics, shows shots of teachers protesting at Moral Monday...
Now go read the mission statement, which ends with this paragraph detailing the point of Organize 2020 — to bring unions into our schools...
The mission statement page concludes with the following timeless plea for more taxpayer cash:
Never mind that public sector unions have effectively bankrupted the teachers' retirement systems in Illinois and California.
Never mind that Detroit more resembles Mogadishu than an American city, thanks in large part to forced unionization.
Never mind all that.
North Carolina's teachers want a union and if the taxpayers don't like it, well, **** you.
If you don't like your kids being used as pawns to promote more failing public schools, well, **** you.
In short: just when you think the Left has hit rock bottom, they break out a jackhammer and start digging a new septic tank.

"Never mind that public sector unions have effectively bankrupted the teachers' retirement systems in Illinois and California."
New Jersey is actually far worse off. They have around the same unfunded liability (around 100 billion) but with a much smaller tax base.
NJ also has a legislature and state supreme court that are demonstrably wholly owned subsidiaries of the state teacher's union.
I have a number of friends that are teachers in NJ, mostly moderate libs that aren't overly political. I recently went 10 rounds with them explaining that there was virtually no chance that they'll ever actually get paid the pensions they've been promised, and probably not more than half what they're expecting.
