Randi Weingarten Goes Mega-Karen

Revisionist lockdown authoritarian Randi Weingarten, president of the American Federation of Teachers, has doubled down in her campaign to convince everyone she was for opening schools. Weingarten testified to Congress late last month that she "spent every day from February on trying to get schools open," adding "we knew that remote education was not a substitute for opening schools."

This earned Weingarten a 'community notes' correction on Twitter, in which users noted that she previously called attempts to reopen schools in the fall of 2020 "reckless, callous and cruel." Establishment 'fact checker' Politifact raced to the scene to perform triage for Weingarten by suggesting that she advocated for "advocated for tailored approaches that prioritized safety needs of individual districts, educators and students but stopped short of endorsing a full return to in-person learning all across the country."

Community notes quickly sliced through that word salad of bullshit, amending Weingarten's May 2 tweet touting the Politifact 'correction' to the record. Weingarten also turned off replies for anyone that doesn't follow her. Both stunning and brave, we know.

“A woman of that sort has a hundred arts to break up her husband’s friendships. She will quarrel with his friends herself or, better still, with their wives. She will sneer, obstruct and lie. She does not realize that the husband whom she succeeds in isolating from his own kind will not be very well worth having; she has emasculated him. Nothing so enriches an erotic love as the discovery that the beloved can deeply, truly and spontaneously enter into friendship with the friends you already had.” -- C.S. Lewis

Proverbs 21:9
It is better to live in a corner of the housetop than in a house shared with a quarrelsome wife.

Proverbs 12:4
An excellent wife is the crown of her husband, but she who brings shame is like rottenness in his bones.

Proverbs 14:1
The wisest of women builds her house, but folly with her own hands tears it down.

Proverbs 27:15
A continual dripping on a rainy day and a quarrelsome wife are alike.
