WEEKEND QUOTABLES

"Nothing about this White House communications department was ever about communicating. On the contrary, it has always been about deception, concealment and equivocation." -- Charles Blow, NYT 

Hap Bryant, National Teachers Academy parent
“We are fighting over scraps." -- WBEZ
Cory McCartan, president of the Union of Grinnell Student Dining Workers.
Unions aren’t just for factory workers or truck drivers; they are for anyone who wants to have a voice in his workplace. The sooner we accept this, the sooner we can transform the labor movement from an ossified relic of the last century into a powerful engine for the social and economic change that this country desperately needs. -- Letter to NYT
AFT Pres. Randi Weingarten 
 “Make no mistake: This use of privatization, coupled with disinvestment, are only slightly more polite cousins of segregation." -- AP Wire
LA Kauffman
Why have so many articles, blog posts, and tweets invoked the resistance without acknowledging who is doing most of the day-to-day work of resisting? -- Guardian
Natalie Moore 
Don’t let OJ Simpson blind us to black victims of injustice. -- Guardian 
Steven W. Thrasher
For the past decade, leading Democrats like Obama, Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel, and Senator Cory Booker have trumpeted charter schools (and their disdain for unions, regulation and government enforcement of civil rights protections). They paved the way for the Devos-Trump education nightmare. -- Guardian
Peter Cunningham @PCunningham57 Replying to @mikeklonsky
I have yet to hear any ideas from you about anything. -- Twitter
Mike Klonsky
