Beheadings for the Wealthy?

By Bobby Eberle

Give Karen Lewis a microphone, and you never know what she's going to say. Lewis is the president of the Chicago Teachers Union... you know, the one who led the strike last year leaving so many students without teachers. Now, she's talking about the so-called "wealth disparity" in America and harkening back to the days when the wealthy were beheaded.

As reported by Mediaite.com, Lewis was giving a speech at the Illinois Labor History Society’s “Salute to Labor’s Historic Heroes from the History Makers of Today” conference. She drew laughter when she mentioned that back in the "old days," the evil wealthy people were simply beheaded.

There is so much wrong with her comments, that I don't even know where to begin. First of all, I don't think there was ever a time in the United States of America when the wealthy were beheaded. Just sayin'.

Lewis says we're not "at that point," but what's the whole purpose of alluding to it? That we might be soon, and that it's ok?

Diving deeper into her comments reveals the mind of a liberal: "Do not think for a minute that the wealthy are ever going to allow you to legislate their riches away from them."

Think about that statement for a minute. "Their riches." What does she mean by that? Money? Probably. Property? Possibly. Other possessions? Sure. The fact is that "riches" mean those things which those people OWN. If they own it, why would they let it be "legislated" away. Why would ANYONE, regardless of income, support legislation that takes his or her possessions away?

But that's how liberals think. They think government owns. Government commands. And people are there simply to serve the government. Wrong!!

Unfortunately, these are the people who occupy positions of leadership. And their entire platform is, "What can I take away from this person?" That's not the kind of leadership we need.

    “in the “old days,” the evil wealthy people were simply beheaded.” And in the Old Days it was survival of the fittest and nature culled out the weak who could not contrive to live off their own means. Ahhhh yes, those were the good old days when the losers of society and the people designed to be the waste eliminator organs of the body politic actually did their jobs and kept the Do Do moving instead of trying to act like the brain organs for which they were never designed which today just constipates society to the point of imploding from within and stinking up, infecting and corrupting the entire body of government and society with their dysfunctional Liberal infections.

    The European socialists in France got Liberty, Equality, and Fraternity and the socialist fraternization gave the people the fratricide beheadings of the French Guillotine and King Napoleon who crowned himself. We Americans are of the tradition of Liberty, Equality, and JUSTICE, where Men are judged by their peers in courts of law, not the courts of Liberal media public opinion or hate speech mongers to denigrate from the podium with overfed necks too thick for a chain saw to be able to decapitate. Our Paradigm of Leadership was a George Washington who loved his people and loved his God and loved his country enough to twice turn down the crown when presented to him by his troops. By men who recognized an authority higher than their own immediate gratification and lust for pleasure. Nobody here doubts Obama who has no concept of a higher authority other than himself would act in such manner if offered a crown. He silently simmers for the moment of crisis that will allow him to grasp it.

    I know not from where such hatred and envy of success comes from. I care not whether it is racial, or mental, or emotional in origin. I only know, by listening to such fools that it is alive and well and dwells in the hearts of dark hearted men and women and those who do not recognize it for what it is will soon become the victims of it unless armed with the truth to defeat it, beginning with the realization it is alive and a deliterious force that walks the American landscape today. The targets of this hate are predominately White and predominately successful, so if this description fits you, then you had better wake up and organize to resist while you still have the strength and still have the time or the concept of all men being created equal will fall with you and yours and the darkness will overcome the fleeting failing light that continues to flicker in the wind of their destructive words.

      What Ms. Lewis seems to have forgotten from the past is that the instigator of the “terror” against the alleged people of priviledge was himself beheaded in 1794 along with the rest of his ilk. The revolution has a way of eventually eating its own (or what goes around, comes around!).

      Is this really the way you speak normally? Perhaps you are using the old, stuffy, high toned sounding English just make a point within the points you wish to make. I’d prefer a recitation in the vernacular, as I’m sure so many others would. I’d hate to think that this form is an expression of your personal high mindedness, or as some might be compelled to say……”Geez, this guy is really stuck on himself.”

      The sad thing that most of these Socialists do is learn nothing about or from history. I may not be a historical scholar but back in the day, weren’t most of the wealthy rich Aristocrats? You know part of the ruling elite? As such, they aren’t even close to being comparable to our rich who are commoners who have earned money due to the Liberty provided by this Great American Experiment.

      It’s the same with Robin Hood, he didn’t just rob from the rich – he robbed from the Aristocracy which had become corrupt with power.

      In both cases very much like the ruling elite in Washington. Now, I don’t condone senseless violence but if you really wanted to help straighten out this Country and take us off the “Road to Serfdom” I certainly wouldn’t start with Bill Gates or Mitt Romney. You see they earned their money, I think you might find a bunch of corrupt people rich by taking advantage of us peasants in another location.

      Of course if I did condone such violence, we may just have to start with the Sheriff of Nottingham Karen Lewis first. As she is the enabler of those who have forsaken the U.S. Constitution for personal power over the people.

    We are not wealthy nor above the so called Poverty Line. We mind our own business, work everyday at a labor of love and live a happy life of subsistence. Why should anyone care about whether another citizen is wealthy or not? We do not worry about someone needing financial help, since they are more affluent than we, because, they take Government assistance where as we do not take any. That is our choice!

    This woman with her Bolshevik Mentality is no more than a Proletariat Piglet sucking off her living paid for by these higher tax bracket wealthy people she wants to behead.

      If this thing is an example of what we sacrificed American excellence and success for to lower our standards to meet and make the failures of society feel good about themselves and equal in spirit and quality then it is high past time to again start descriminating, beginning with descriminating against failure and failures who threaten our naive children whose empty minds they have poured their unnatural garbage into and corrupted the future of America. They have been given a equal level playing field, been given one where the odds were even trimmed in their favor, yet still they prove themselves and their ideology to be inferior. From now on if it works we go with it. If it fails we call it out for what it is no matter whose feelings get hurt and move on back to success. Our Time and our money is running out. Time to fire Jaba the Hut and bring back the good guys with the light sabers.

      I once had a Liberal Girlfiend for about 3 years. Learned a great deal.

      One, THEY sit high, way way above the Hoi polloi. Their intelligence, their thoughts are more precious. Think Gollum, from Lord of the Rings

      Two, they LOVE to lecture, (She was a teacher) telling others, “how it is”, and what they are to do. Double Standards, are OK.

      Three, just consider them as Commissars that have yet a pistol at the back of your head, and shiny black jack boots to shove your body into an awaiting ditch. (Environmental Impact Statement on that ditch with bodies?) NO. See double standards.

      The day the Soviet Union died, I kid you not, the Leftists at an Austin, Texas, UT Christmas party, were red eyed crying. Looked like Santa Stalin was never going to pay a visit.

      No the Left (PRAVDA just calls them what they are, COMMUNISTS) are really excited about the miracle that Obama somehow, made it into Office. NOW, his minions are lining up to repeal, or Executive Order the 22nd Amendment away, allowing an endless Rule by Obama.

      Obama admitted that there might be resistance to his seizing firearms, but Madame Guillotine will be hard pressed to effortlessly chop the heads off of those who resist. More likely the table will be reversed. Doubt that the fat head of Lewis would even fit.

      Yes, txgoatlady, and you could add Lady Di Feinstein, the richest woman in the Senate who married into her money to that list. She, Pelosi, the Kennedys, and John Kerry’s wife all have something in common besides their wealth: none of them probably ever did an honest day’s work in their lives.

      Translation: Even her union cohorts know she’s an arrogant, abusive big mouth.

    Back in the old days, witches were burned at the stake and wooden stakes were driven through the hearts of blood sucking vampires.

    Of course, at about the same time the French (Karen Lewis’ heroes?) were beheading Mari Antoinette, our founding fathers (give or take a few years) were creating the United States Constitution. With it, a document that ultimately led to the end of slavery on this continent, they created freedom on this continent.

    Something I don’t understand: Why is it that liberals think nothing at all of relegating the United States Constitution to the status of toilet paper and at the same time accuse conservatives, who respect the Constitution, of wanting to return us to the days of slavery.

    Karen Lewis misses the good old days of beheading, huh? Trash the Constitution and you trash freedom. Is this what liberals want? Evidently so, so long as “the right people” are enslaved. That is apparently the liberal way.

    Not to mention the way liberals say and laugh at any hateful thing while always accusing those who have the audacity to disagree of being evil, racist and hateful. What a classy group of people.

      You’ve got that right Petark. Words mean something, at least to those of us who take them seriously and translate them as they are spoken. It’s not just the libs who show their hand by the occasional slip of the tongue, reference Obama talking to
      George Stephanopolis about his “Muslim Faith.” Or Ms Lewis about beheading the rich. We are racing at break neck speed toward another American Revolution. The differences though are stark. Although we are dealing with the issue of taxation we are at a distinct disadvantage today as opposed to our ancestors from 1776. The populous of these colonies were divided approximately into thirds. One third supported the casting aside of the tyranny of the crown. One third still considered themselves loyal to the crown. One third didn’t seem to have an opinion one way or the other. Today, however, we seem to be split right down the middle. Well, almost. There are slightly more today than 50% who are loyal to the freebie machine that libs would have them believe the government is and was always meant to be. The sense of honor, morality, justice and hatred of oppression against any man seems to have all but vanished in this 1/2 of society.

      These “senses” or “values” are considered archaic and passe’ by the left. Envy, jealousy and hatred of one toward another simply because one has a dollar more than you, is what is fostered by this current “Regime.” Communist tactics to enslave the masses. Thomas Jefferson once said….”When wrongs are pressed because it is believed they will be borne, resistance becomes morality.” It is the moral thing to do, to resist with all conviction and purpose, when these kinds of usurpations, and outright violations of our constitutionally guaranteed rights are being pressed upon us. Obama and his cronies believe that the American people “will bear” these things, so they continue to move forward with their liberty killing agenda. Again, to quote Jefferson…..”What country can preserve its liberties if its rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance?” “An elective despotism is not the government we fought for.” And lastly…..”The two enemies of the people are criminals and government. So let us tie the second down with the chains of the constitution so the second will not become the legalized version of the first.”

      Yes. As Ms Lewis said…..”in the good old days they beheaded the wealthy…” I declare, not by faux pas or an unintended slip of the tongue, a second revolution is coming and is closer than many of us who may share this view point, may now think.

Perhaps it is the fantastical re-election of someone who not only could NEVER get a National Security Clearance, but was not even eligible to run in the first place that has them in a trance, a tingle up the leg?

    Teachers being the bottom of the educated class, it’s only reasonable for them to want to take down those who have done more with their talents than they have.

    Go to any college and you will find an education degree is the final step before dropping out.

      @jogershok: I am torn…many teachers in this era fit your comment’s description; however, my mother was one of the finest teachers I have ever known. Besides graduating Summa Cum Laude while carrying a double major (Primary AND Secondary Education), along with a minor in music…with 10 children at home, she had what many teachers are missing today: a genuine love for children that was magnified by her intense desire to see those children learn and succeed. She went back to university when I was a junior in high school, and attained her Master’s Degree in Reading & Learning Disabilities from the University of South Carolina. USC is still using the test that she wrote for her Master’s thesis as a primary tool in their R&LD system. Mom taught me to read before I was three years old, and was the driving force behind my desire to truly succeed in my education. Understand, I am not naive about this: I realize my mother was the exception to the rule…but there are still exceptions in our school systems…they are just fewer and farther between. Our national education system is suffering from a fatal case of “dumbing down” and lack of true educational standards. People like this overfed, ignorant Socialist vampire are a major reason for the desert that is called “the American educational system”.

      Ah yes, terminology. These guys are collectivists. Collectivism has many flavors. Socialists, Communists, Statists, Fascists, take your pick.

      The thing that they have in common is that the individual is not important and must sacrifice or be scrificed to some mythical “greater good.”

      By that they mean the greater good of the collective.

      But what they fail to grasp or choose to ignore is that freedom can only exist for the individual. If you demand that the indiviual be sacrificed, you are demanding the loss of freedom.

      Collectivism always leads to slavery. Individualism always leads to freedom. Our country was founded on the priciples of individualism. It is the individuals who make up We the People.

      Our desent into collectivism is the poison which is destroying our country.

So I called them SUBJECTS of the State. A little less happy about that, but it flew for them just the same. I was appalled. This is what the Public Education System (machine) is cranking out.

      –you would be amazed at how many Communists get into teaching–

      Yes, there was a going over of much that was not known by the students. And yes, I was called into the office to explain myself, which to their total shock, I did. As the years ground on by, it dawned on me, that I was, “The Alien” a stranger in my own Country! Finally I had enough, and pulled the ejection cord and got out of that corrosive atmosphere. Like walking out of a dirty gas station rest room, and into a fine Spring Day but those days are now brief…

      to lwesson,

      Thanks for the reply. I think that your story and observations are right on. I have written in other blogs about this issue and it is obvious that you get it. I am old enough and lucky enough to have made it through the system with my rational brain intact.

      It is horrifying and yet not surprising that so many of your students actually have accepted the idea of being slaves. I went through the gamut of political and sociological ideologies over the years. But never did I accept socialism as a good idea. Once I was able to educate myself further, I found that many of the ideas I had been spoon fed by the educational system were just plain wrong.

      It was when I started reading the works of Ayn Rand that things began to clarify. In college I studied philosophy, but had no idea the modern philosophy professors has come to our universities directly from Germany after setting that country on a path to Nazism.

      Now I feel like an outcast in my own alien country because the collectivist mindset has taken hold and infected our society. I finally realized that I was a Libertarian, with an Objectivist philosophy.

      I am also a strict Constitutionalist. The Founders are under attack by the collectivists. There is no doubt that as our country grew, many mistakes were made. Most of these mistakes were when we did not follow the principles they put in place. But the collectivist use those mistakes to attack the concepts. This is a very common collectivist tactic. They will mess with the Free market Capitalism and when they have screwed it all up, they blame it, rather than their meddling, for the problems which they created.

      This process which is destroying our country stated long before we were born. Perhaps as early as 1871 when the Act of 1871 was passed. The process has been at work for a long time. But things are heating up. We may be at a point where the tyranny will go too far, and there are still enough people who believe in true freedom to make a stand. I wish I could say the system could fix itself, but it seems to me that revolution is on the horizon.

      But back to topic. The indoctrination of willing obedient slaves promoted by our entire government run educational system has really muddled the thinking of many Americans. This, in concert with a government controlled media has continued the process. Ron Paul is focusing his efforts on college campuses and believes that the youth can be able to understand freedom. I hope he is right. G. Edward Griffin still believes that the problems can be fixed through political means. I hope they are right, but I am convinced that revolution is coming and it will not be peaceful.

      The current attack on the 2nd amendment could be a focus point. Time will tell.

      I also forgot that Arnie now holds the country’s educational reins, thanks to his basketball skills with……guess who?

    But, we do live in a free country (more or less) and people can say what they want (so far anyway.) There’s no law that requires what a person say make sense or be true. What Lewis says does NOT make sense and ISN’T true.

      What she knows is irrelevant: there is a very large voting bloc of people in the United States that turns off their brain and votes because of the color they see. To exacerbate the problem, they vote for whomever will “give” them the most, in each and every case, that has been the Democrats…the Party of take what is not theirs, and give to those who have done nothing to deserve it. Human nature being what it is, that cycle will continue until EVERY conservative gets off their apathetic rear end and votes…I sincerely hope this last “election” serves as a wake-up call to conservatives across the nation…but I’m not holding my breath.

    When you are a glutton like Ms. Lewis obviously is, SHE cannot seem to stuff enough food into her mouth, (SHE) is a very lustful individual. Anyone who knows the Word of God, knows that it would reveal the specifics to HER willful state, the sin that it really is, and it is certain that when there is one lust in a person’s mind, there is a long list of other lusts. A minimum of two have come out in public, lust for food and lust for money, and it is now apparent that SHE has been greedy and seeking after the things that other people have and because SHE cannot have them, cannot take those people’s places, cannot live the lives that SHE only imagines them living and the power that they sometimes have in the world of $, SHE has murder in her heart. SHE is very evil and should be removed from her position(s) because SHE will eventually get to the point, most likely, of taking action on ridding the world of hard-working rich people, people who wear nice clothes, people who drive nice cars, people who have nice houses, people who have more than her, people who are not gluttonous, people who are of God and people who share with other people.

      I’m not over weight, I eat a high fat, high calorie diet, and I don’t exercise much.
      But there are people that eat far less than I do that exercise and are on starvation diets that are still obese.
      Being toxic, having low thyroid function, having hormonal imbalance, being exposed to too much estrogen, are just a few things that have an effect on being overweight.
      Being overweight doesn’t automatically make them evil.

      You may be right about this lady, I don’t know.
      But I don’t want people reading your post to think they are evil just because they are overweight.

She is in education, so she, by virtue of her position, is seen as credible and knowledgable sadly.

    Some of these comments are so great and right on that I really debated whether or not I should leave a comment. But I think that a couple of things need to be said. First, wealth is a both a matter of perception, and of location, and yet these are both results of education. If one is born in the desert regions of Africa your view of whether or not you are wealthy would depend on how you are raised.

    If you grew up among the desert bedouin tribes if you possessed a tent, a small flock of goats and your own camel you may consider yourself very wealthy. However, if you were born among the tribes that live on the edge of that same desert, but caught between the desert and the more fertile rain forests, you would probably consider yourself very poor and forced to labor for those who own the farming land farther away from the desert.

    It is taught in the Holy Bible is the a man was to be considered wealthy if he had a place to live, more than a single change of clothing, and food for more than one day. Even during the times when this was true for the majority of those living in the Holy Lands. The attitude that was called for by Scripture was, “in everything give thanks.”

    That so many children in Chicago are having their minds twisted by this Karen Lewis is terrifying. The average income of the middle class men and women who are the children being taught by teachers and superintendents with this point of view, is probably much lower than the income of these same teachers. Is it any wonder that Chicago, the President’s hometown, and the place that gave us over 500 murders in 2012 is being educated by a bunch of whining and picketing teachers who at the same time that they are being almost violent in their demands for more and more, are saying that the most important thing to them is teaching the children.

    I demand more than I am getting, and let’s holdup those who have what we want until we get it is not what I want our American children and even our President, being taught. How about you?

      This is the liberal mentality at work. They never see it is they who are the imaginary evil group they fight against

      Their mission in life is to save others from the misery they created, and any who find happiness without them are to be denounced, vilified and castigate for this crime, because it shows there is one thing they know all the trillions the government gives them will not buy

      Ms Lewis and all those of her political stripe (Marxist) use their positions as educators to pollute the minds of our children. Anti Americanism is the main course subject for all teachers and all classes. When they are taught that America is the evil satan and cause of so much misery in the world with its imperialistic conquests and resultant enslavement of those conquered, is it any surprise we see the hate for America at such a fevered pitch as we find it in the younger generations?

      Once fully indoctrinated and enraged, these young minds can organize like they did in the mid to late 60′s under guys like Bill and Bernadine Ayers of the weather underground. They can completely justify bombing police headquarters and killing people indiscriminately. All the while, people like Ms Lewis can stand aloof, detached from the violence being committed and claim they had nothing to do with those acts of terrorism.
      How convenient for them. They can watch the product of their educational corruption commit these acts and be jumping up and down inside much like the Muslim community did on 9-11.

      These young people are just following their “programming.” Is this what we want for our country today? Let’s old these elitists accountable for their every word and action.

    UNFORTUNATELY, that has been turned around so that the civil servants not only dont live by the same rules BUT LIVE AT A MORE “PRESTIGIOUS” RATE than those that pay their salaries

Look at the fatty, she is definitely living high on the hog from teacher dues! Lousy schools, lousy and overpaid teachers in Chicago and all they do is ***** and complain. Fire them all, close down the union, and start over. Chicago students deserve good teachers at a decent (not obscene salary as now with perks, etc.), and a non-union work force. Perhaps then more of the blacks and poor would finish school in Ill. She is a sad reflection of ignorance of history, culture, and bad manners.

    From the pictures I saw of the Teacher’s Union strikers, it looked more like a blivet (10 lbs. of s*** in a 5 lb. bag) convention. They didn’t think they were getting paid enough, $72K/year for working an average of 5+/- hours/day and doing a sub-standard job at that. Considering the number of unemployed, under employed and those who have given up looking for work, these people have an amount of chutzpah that is in direct proportion to their mass. In Yiddish, we call them “chazzars” which literally translates to “hogs”.

    The party of peace, love, diversity, tolerance, equality and fairness has been spewing hatred and threatening more violence than the “racist-right-wing-extremists-bitterly-clinging-to-their-guns-and-religion” by several magnitudes yet they are never censured or rebuked and rarely exposed by the mainstream media.

    Concurrent with this, our rights under the 2nd amendment are being threatened and a bill is being introduced to repeal the 22nd amendment which limits a president to two terms. Gee, what can possibly go wrong?

    This is the President of the Chicago Teachers Union talking. A supposed leader of an important public service union. What she does for me is just expose how perverted and out of touch she and these union leaders and their members are from the real world. She cannot be serious, because if she really believes this dribble, then she needs to be institutionalized. I actually believe that public service unions are undermining our country by their biased and self servicing policies and behavior. Not only are they financially bankrupting government at all levels, but their ideology is contrary to the ideology of the American way. They are perpetuating a far left socialist ideology built around a huge nanny state government. This is consistent with the ideology of the Obama administration. It is treasonous behavior but they are getting away with it…for now. Sooner or later, the xxxx is going to finally hit the fan and their days are going to be numbered, at least, I hope so.

    Someone said that we must be most watchful of those who seek power.

    The love of my life turned out to be a Progressive and like another commenter I have learned a lot from her. As a Child Protective Service social worker (MSW) in our state I see in her a great caring for the vulnerable people in our population. My biggest debate with her is how can we afford what she would like to see.

    Do you remember the scene from Star Wars II “The Clone Wars” the scene in the Senate where the “real power” representative was whispering in the ear of Chancellor Valorem? We suffer from a shadow government, the robber-baron international super-rich, who have bought our government with their money and manipulate our elections from behind their corporation through flawed campaign funding rules.

    It is them and their fellow power-seekers that we need to keep under the microscope and react from our ethics.

    These people got the Supreme Court to declare that a corporation is a person and that their cash is a valid method of speech.

    Let’s limit campaign funding by any individual to, say, the same amount as the National Poverty Level standard. This would limit mega-money campaign influence and help restore responsibility of our government representatives to the people and hopefully to the principles of our constitution.

    This woman is a joke. I’m sure her “wealth” is food because it’s obvious she hasn’t missed a meal and probably helped herself to others’ meals, too. I’m sure she’d be singing a different tune if someone tried to take her food away, then it would REALLY be over.

    The wealthy this union idiot is refering to are the wealthy aristocrats, clergy, and the educated who met their end under the blade of the guillotine during the French Revolution. Such executions were carried out under the behest of the Committee for Public Safety during the Reign of Terror. In short, it was mob rule that characterised much of the Revolution. In the end however, the chief head of the revolution, Maximilien Robespierre was beheaded. Take note of history Lewis.

      I’m sure she did not mean anything by her statements. She looks hungry and is probably grouchy. I just hope she does not teach history because I don’t think beheadings were common in America.

    I’ll take the good old days, before the Department of Education was formed. When teachers and school boards were accountable to parents not the federal govenment or the ACLU. Remember when the PTA was more than a fund raising tool and actually had enough clout to get bad teachers fired? That was the gool old days in education.
