Teacher Darren of Right on the Left Coast went to the union-sponsored anti-Schwarzenegger rally, and discovered unwanted bedfellows.
Teachers, firefighters, nurses — all of us should be embarrassed, upset, and concerned by the participants in Wednesday’s rally. I’m not talking about the teachers, nurses, and firefighters themselves, who were for the most part very well-behaved, but rather the “outsiders” who were allowed in as part of the rally — the Stalinists, the socialists, and various assorted other lefties. What was billed as a rally to protest specific policies of Governor Schwarzenegger turned out to be an anti-American, anti-capitalist, far-left-wing gathering.
And union dues, my union dues, helped foot the bill for it.
Darren carried a sign attacking the California Teachers Association; the other side said, “I’m a teacher and I vote Republican.” He heard some nasty comments, and one sexual proposal not to his liking. Scroll down for his photos.
