Why does California Federation of Teachers support cop killer?

If you need any further evidence of how fully politicized public employee unions have become in Califronia, look no further than this story about which Phineas, blogging at Sister Toldjah’s, site reminds us, “At its recent convention, the CFT passed a resolution of support for Mumia Abu-Jamal, a convicted cop-killer:”

Between negotiating for more benefits and teaching their students, the California Federation of Teachers has adopted a resolution of support for convicted cop-killer Mumia Abu-Jamal.At the CFT’s 2011 Convention in late March, the delegates passed 30 resolutions, from solidifying support for anti-bullying legislation to supporting transitional kindergarten. Among the resolutions largely pertaining to education and collective bargaining rights was Resolution 19 – to “Reaffirm support for death row journalist.”

“Therefore, be it resolved, that the California Federation of Teachers reaffirm its support and demand that the courts consider the evidence of innocence of Mumia Abu-Jamal,” the Committee Report reads.

Defense of this convicted cop killer has become a cause célèbre on the left.

One wonders why union officials felt it incumbent upon themselves to take up his cause, one entirely unrelated to their profession.

  1. Reading, writing & arithmetic is passe; indoctrination is the key. Or so they think. It’s time to dissolve all public sector unions. They are corrupt cesspools of political brinkmanship.

  2. Exactly. This is why the Obama Party and gay and lesbian liberals oppose any type of testing or evaluation of reading, writing, and math; they don’t want it to become completely obvious that unionized teachers are not teaching them.

  4. Didn’t you read the post, Auntie Dogma? You and your Barack Obama Party and its teachers’ unions support, endorse, and protect convicted cop-killers, not reading, writing, or math.

    But then again, that’s no surprise; Barack Obama himself endorsed and supported cop-killer Bill Ayers and his bombing police stations. It makes you wonder at the level of cognitive dissonance among police officers when their unions support and endorse the party that openly advocates for their murder.

  5. Also, Auntie Dogma, why do gays and lesbians like yourself whine about bullying in schools, when you support those who murder police officers and you yourself justify making death threats against and nasty web pages threatening people you don’t like?

  6. Also, can you imagine the reaction if someone put up a website with a picture of a gay teenager putting a gun to their head and talking about how they wish all gay people would kill themselves? Auntie Dogma, Cas, Rob Tisinai, Evan Hurst, JoeMyGod, Pam Spaulding, Dan Savage, and others would blow a gasket.

    But if it’s Sarah Palin? They support, endorse, and justify it, just like Dogma did.

    The gay and lesbian community truly is sick in the head. Dogma demonstrates that on a daily basis with its endorsement of death threats and violence.

  7. I have repeatedly challenged the left to explain their affection for thugs and murderers. There simply are no counterparts on the right for Mumia, Che, pr Mao. There is no major ‘Free Randall Terry’ movement on the right. People do not show up at Tea Parties with portraits of mass murderers on flags and T-shirts. Terry Nichols is in prison, but if he had bombed for the left, he’d be a tenured professor at the University of Illinois.

    The left adores those who commit violence on behalf of socialism… anybody on the left care to defend this?

  8. V the K, I think it simply has to do with the fact that the left, which includes the Obama Party and the gay and lesbian community, sees anyone who opposes or disagrees with them as being subhuman and thus mere obstacles to be removed, either by murder or by imprisonment/disenfranchisement.

    We’ve all seen how Levi states that anyone who disagrees with him needs to be forcibly dragged “kicking and screaming” into blind obedience to him. We’ve seen Dogma equivocate for death threats against Republicans and we’ve seen gays and lesbians like Rob Tisinai, Joe Jervis, and Jim Burroway who were shrieking for Sarah Palin’s head after the Tucson shootings go silent when there are gay and lesbian community leaders and whole web pages with thousands of supporters calling for her and her family’s rape, torture, and murder.

    The gay and lesbian community regularly states that those who oppose them or disagree with them are “mentally ill” or have other mental disorders like “Stockholm Syndrome” and should be committed; they also insist that anyone who espouses religious beliefs is mentally inferior and should be deprived of their right to vote or hold office due to “contamination” or “indoctrination”.

    The Obama Party did everything it could to stall and stop the investigation and punishment of death threats made against Republican and conservative legislators and bloggers, aided by the Obama-controlled media. The Obama Party Department of Justice has made it clear that it will not prosecute Obama-approved groups like unions or the Black Panthers who threaten people with the wrong political views or skin color, and it will support vendettas against people such as in the Duke rape case. The Obama-controlled police and firefighters’ unions in Wisconsin have demanded that businesses pay them or Obama Party politicians additional “contributions” and provide public support or they will not enforce the laws or put out fires.

    And finally, the Obama Party demands full Federal funding for the likes of Kermit Gosnell who ensure that those millions deemed “inconvenient” by the Obama Party due to skin color, circumstances, or the like never see the light of day, never escape the snipping of their spinal cords, and never escape the broom closet where they’re dumped to die.

    The Obama Party and the constituencies it owns like the gay and lesbian community are sick. They literally do not care if someone murders a police officer. They do not care if someone with Federal funding slices up a baby or someone receiving a disability check infects a child with HIV. They do not care if their supporters blow up buildings, murder Republican legislators, and intimidate and threaten businesses as long as the campaign contributions keep flowing. They fully endorse and support their funding sources calling for “war”, “blood”, and “thousands of bodies” against Republicans and conservatives.

  9. From what I’ve read, there is no doubt as to Wesley Cook’s aka Mumia’s guilt: he shot Officer Falukner in cold blood and should have been given the needle years ago.

    Why the left gets a boner for viscous criminals is beyond me.

    Not only that, Wesley Cook got a fair trial, so it can not be credibly asserted that he was the “guilty man who was railroaded” type.

    Of course, it begs the question of why the CFT, as an organization, is taking a position on this at all .

  11. Mumia Abu Jamal killed a cop and black supremacists like Granny Dementia justifies this.
