Traitor Sponsors

Hat tips: Leslie Carbone, The Ward View, Madison Thacker, and several others.

You may have seen the video of the "peace protesters" in Portland, Oregon hanging a soldier in effigy and burning it along with an American flag. Leslie Carbone has it here major language warning). One of Leslie's commenters, Madison Thacker, posts a list of sponsors.

What I find interesting is that two chapters of the American Federation of Teachers are listed among the sponsors. These same unions coerce dues out of teachers supposedly to represent their best interests and improve working conditions? Ummmm, here they use these dues (which I don't know if they are mandatory in Oregon) to give to a bunch of traitors and flag-burners!

By the way, if you want to track all the news about teachers' unions and their activities, Intercepts is a must read page.

Now I don't know if any of you live in Oregon, but there are a lot of churches listed here as well. If you find your listed among the sponsors, you might want to reconsider your membership.

So remember the protest sponsors the next time you hear about the virtues of the teachers' unions. Something tells me even Al Shanker would be turning over in his grave!
