Wicomico Candidates Bite The Forbidden Fruit of The Deceptive Teachers' Union
“Oh, what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive.” - Sir Walter Scott
The teachers' union is dishonestly working to initiate problems in a structure with complications, strictly for the purpose of control and not education.
Behold the candidates who have bitten the forbidden fruit and accepted an endorsement from the deceptive teachers' union. For those who are unaware, the teachers' union consists of the National Education Association (NEA), the Maryland State Education Association (MSEA), and their local chapter called the Wicomico County Education Association (WCEA). Each election season, the union selects and endorses the candidates that will carry out their self-serving political mission on the frontline.
Of those endorsed by the union at the local level, these individuals now stand as Wicomico's "Poison Apple Candidates" in the 2022 General Election. “Teacher Recommended” is quite deceptive when the union doesn’t speak for all teachers in Wicomico County. Membership in the union is optional for teachers, and not all teachers are members.
A reminder of what the union has done and is doing in our schools:
Worked to unnecessarily keep our schools closed and influenced unconstitutional forced health mandates to override the rights of citizens.
Continues to work to hide curriculum from parents and keep them out of education.
Interferes in areas beyond collective bargaining.
Influences and interferes with curriculum.
Anti-law enforcement: Against having more School Resource Officers (SROs) and prefers Social Workers and Psychologists so they can collect more member dues.
Uses member dues to lobby for harmful legislation and to support failed policies.
Supports Critical Race Theory (CRT) and Social Emotional Learning (SEL).
Supports BLM https://marylandeducators.org/grants-support-black-lives-matter-at-school/
Injects and encourages political activism in the classroom and sees teachers as activists. https://marylandeducators.org/your-rights-as-an-educator-activist/
Support and promotes sexually explicit materials in the school.
Sexually exploits children through the promotion of perverted sex acts. https://www.independentsentinel.com/why-is-the-nea-pushing-anal-sex-fisting-bondage-sadomasochism-on-kids
Exploits our administrators, teachers, students, and parents.
Wants to control all levels of government.
Fails member-teachers when they need legal assistance.
Interferes with elections and uses member dues to support liberal political campaigns.
Exploits the taxpayer’s resources by having dedicated use of our school offices, electricity, Internet, communication systems, and paid days off for union member development training on the taxpayer's dime.
These candidates are their champions, because they will tow the line of the union. Their agenda is not in the best interest of our children. Both the union and the citizens cannot be simultaneously represented by our elected officials without impartiality. The union plays a major role in our currently failing school system, and seeks to control every aspect of government as a PAC.
