every last drop of political advantage in the tech a year ago, it was hard to hear the words to the hypocrisy drift thing from almost every sentence protect us from joe biden. >> what kind of nation are we going to be? are we going to be a nation that accepts political violence as a norm? >> really? this is a former leader of the same part is quite happy to see political violence become the norm of american life in the summer of 2021 black lives matter and other left-wing extremists left parts of american cities in ruin and pursuit of their political objectives. kamala harris did not think that was on the pearl harbor 911 she helped raise money to get these perpetrators for illegal violence on jail on jump bail. the unforgivable offense of trying to overturn the presidential election. yes it is certainly wrong. it always is. but somehow it was not wrong back in 2016 when hillary clinton said donald trump was an illegitimate president. this of course is democrats plug to discredit trump and

they have chose to this unilateral action is doing nothing but harming children, harming families, disrupting our system at a time when we need everybody to be unified and leave our kids in school for in-person learning. gerry: it's a standoff over coded safeguards for teachers refused to return to the classroom. after a union vote on tuesday at and turn the city school superintendent refused to allow them to teach remotely. said canceling classes for around 30,000 children for the rest of the week. how much more damage will we allow these teachers unions to do to children and their education? let's ask our panel joe concha and mollie hemingway. molly, when mayor lori lightfoot the darling of the left of the darling of the progressive left's been running chicago into the ground and all kinds of ways over the last couple of years actually even she has had enough of the teachers unions and she is demanding they go back to work. what have we done here to get
11:14 am
to this situation where our children have suffered so much damage over the last two years the psychological damage the educational damage and teachers are still, two years later despite all the vaccinations they've have on all the safeguards put in place are still refusing to teach them as they should be taught. >> i think it used to be said that dead children made a bad loss which was a reference to how if any child was ever harmed by anything we would rush to change all of our law so it would never happen again. somehow we move from that two years of horrific damage we are doing to our children across the country by banning them from in-person learning. we have had years of evidence this was both unnecessary and catastrophically damaging to them. and yet because of the strength of the teachers unions, very little has been done. support joe, molly raises a good point. what he think the politics are to this?
11:15 am
it does seem to me, you cannot have a clear demonstration of how much power teachers unions have over the democratic party. it is pretty remarkable when even lori lightfoot takes a stand against the teachers unions. as molly said we saw in virginia, people had enough of this they sought in the new jersey election incumbent democratic governor nearly lost the election the outrage of the continuing closure of school the continuing inability to get our children talked. what is the political ramification? it seems to be we could be at a pivotal moment where parents to have just decided they've had enough of this this becomes a big political issue. >> sure, we saw that movie in virginia at my home state of new jersey were education which has been forgotten over the last couple of election cycles i think it should be higher since i am a parent of a kindergartner and a second grader. we saw with glenn youngkin winning a state that joe biden won by double digits on the education issue because your point parents have had enough

paper ticket with a curriculum that teaches children to see others to the prism of race for its exact opposite of what doctor martin luther king.which is judged by by the content of their character not by the color of their skin. teachers unions do not have any argument here pretty wish the president of the united states would go to chicago and say you need to go back to school and get these children taught trade show me some courage and take on the teachers union. but of course he won't do that. bottom line is near a city public school systems, they did this extensive study along the cdc to say okay, is there transmission schools? what they conclude in march of 2021 that's when they first opened after the pandemic started, only .4% of test came back positive for coronavirus. that was during a time by the way when virus cases were spiking in the community praise when the safest places you can be, our children can be chicago public schools they have the same data and yet the teachers union continues to push the mayor around. this needs to stop because to

11:22 am
what kind of message does that send? >> well, this has been a big push on the progressive movement for some time to install district attorney's who declined to prosecute serious cases of harm to the community. and this has been enacted over the course of many years across the country. it is surprising they are continuing to do it even after realizing there are some political cost associated with it. they are true believers in this idea that somehow serves the community cannot vigorously prosecute crime. i say that even though i'm someone who believes in criminal justice reform and working to not unduly incarcerate for extended lengths of time, people who really it should be brought back into the community to be part of their families. but it clearly harms the communities they claim they want to help to not vigorously prosecute crimes that do so much damage to those communities. gerry: joe i live in new york you live new jersey. we've seen to meet one of the most remarkable examples of
