Teacher Confronts Black Tea Partier At Denver Pro-Union Rally
Tommy Christopher at Mediaite has great video of a passionate discussion between Leland Robinson, a black tea partier, who was sadly subjected to some racist heckling, and a pro-union teacher.
As you can see, things start out with a good old-fashioned, spirited-as-hell debate between Leland and a schoolteacher, and if you leave out the racially-charged stuff, this conversation crackles with the energy of democracy. I really wanted to hear Leland’s second choice for teachers (after “Quit your job”), and I was fine with his suggestion that teachers all be “f***ing fired,” and with the teacher’s response that you don’t know what work is until you’ve taught. I only wished I could have heard more about the entrepreneurial model of public school teaching.
A woman named Linda Sari at one point interjects and asks Leland, “Do you have any children that you claim?” Then it gets interesting.
