NEA, CWA, NAACP, GreenPeace Meet to End Voter ID, End Filibuster – and GET BIG MONEY OUT OF POLITICS

I’ve used ‘bwahahahaha’ several times recently in response to Liberal hypocrisy, so can’t use it this time. Mother Jones says this “invite-only and off-the record” meeting is the kind that “conspiratorial conservative bloggers dream about.” Those in the meeting pledged BIG MONEY to supposedly remove BIG MONEY from the politics they are trying so hard to dominate. The whole affair is known as the “Democracy Initiative.”


At the end of the day, many of the attendees closed with a pledge of money and staff resources to build a national, coordinated campaign around three goals: getting big money out of politics, expanding the voting rolls while fighting voter ID laws, and rewriting Senate rules to curb the use of the filibuster to block legislation. The groups in attendance pledged a total of millions of dollars and dozens of organizers to form a united front on these issues—potentially, a coalition of a kind rarely seen in liberal politics, where squabbling is common and a stay-in-your-lane attitude often prevails. “It was so exciting,” says Michael Brune, the Sierra Club’s executive director. “We weren’t just wringing our hands about the Koch brothers. We were saying, ‘I’ll put in this amount of dollars and this many organizers.'” Source

CWA = Communications Workers of America. Does this mean that America’s most prominent network anchors are contributing BIG MONEY to stop BIG MONEY? Members of the NEA, America’s teachers, are apparently okay with the Democracy Initiative. If you haven’t pulled your kids out of public schools, make the sacrifice and do it.

    It looks like “America’s teacher’s” failed to teach you how to properly pluralize nouns, so obviously everyone should pull their kids out of school.

    • Jon, mistake noted and corrected. Do not blame my teachers. Look around my blog. I type many words every day, and I’m certain there are errors, but not many.
