American Federation of Teachers President Randi Weingarten is now saying “Schools must be open.” Weingarten gave a speech at AFT headquarters Thursday to call students back to in-person learning.

“There is no doubt: Schools must be open. In person. Five days a week. With the space and facilities to do so,” Weingarten said. “We know that’s how kids learn best and that prolonged isolation is harmful.”

Weingarten also launched a $5 million campaign “to communicate the importance of in-school learning and build families’ trust and confidence in children returning to school.” The campaign is called “Back-to-School for Everyone.” This comes after President Biden has also executed a billion-dollar plan to help schools.

“The United States will not be fully back until we are fully back in school. And my union is all in,” Weingarten said.

Uvalde, TX Mayor Calls Beto O’Rourke a ‘Sick Son of a B****’ After he Heckled Gov. Abbott’s Presser

The vile act of politicizing horrific tragedies such as the Uvalde, Texas elementary school massacre, has been in full force. Democrat Beto O’Rourke “was escorted out of Texas Republican Gov. Greg Abbott’s press conference Wednesday after he showed up and heckled the governor in the middle of an update on the elementary school massacre in Uvalde” reports The Blaze.

Beto is a former congressman from El Paso, Texas as well as a Democratic presidential nominee briefly for the 2020  elections. During his time, he campaigned hard on his support for a mandatory gun buyback scheme.

The Blaze reported on Beto’s behavior at Abbott’s press conference:

As Abbott was finishing his remarks to reporters, O’Rourke, the Democratic candidate for governor, stood up and began speaking about the need for gun control legislation.

“Excuse me,” Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick said as O’Rourke ignored him and went on about how “the time has come to put a stop” to gun violence. O’Rourke did not have a microphone, and most of his comments were inaudible.

“Sit down!” shouted Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) as the Democrat kept speaking.

“You’re out of line and an embarrassment!” Patrick told O’Rourke, while others began raising their voices.

“You are doing nothing!” O’Rourke yelled at Abbott as police officers began to march him out of the room.

“You need to get his a** out of here, this isn’t the place to talk this over,” said Uvalde Mayor Don Mclaughlin, calling O’Rourke a “sick son of a b****.”
