During the Wisconsin protests the unions were all about teachers, firefighters, and most importantly police officers. Sadly, as soon as that battle seemed over the unions started to show their true colors once again. The AFL-CIO and the California Teachers Union have now come out and endorsed Mumia Abu Jamal, who shot and killed Officer Daniel Faulkner, at point blank range in December of 1981. Glenn gave his reaction on radio this morning.
“I remember when all the stuff was happening in Wisconsin with the teachers unions and some of the police unions were able to show their solidarity. It's interesting how the teachers are repaying that,” Stu said.
“Police officers, I am begging you. Teachers, I am begging you. Firemen, I am begging you. This is why you don't get in bed with some of the [unions],” Glenn said. “Teachers in California, is this who you are?”
Some union members will likely claim the resolution is a meaningless piece of paper, but Glenn said “You now have a resolution from your union saying that you stand behind the release of a cop killer, Mumia Abu Jamal, and you have relabeled him cop killer to journalist.”
Glenn warned that unions like the California Teachers Union are “in bed with radicals and communists, and you cannot stand next to them. If you don't rat them out of your own union, you become part of the problem.”
