Post-Vergara: Civil war possible among CA Dems

Post-Vergara: Civil war possible among CA Dems

storm.comingThe Vergara storm is coming, and I’ve got a feeling that it’s going to be gigantic.

The ruling’s potential impact on California public education — and public education nationally — could be immense. Even if it doesn’t stand, it will inspire similar lawsuits everywhere, and similar concerns about the proper balance of power in public schools between unionized employees of those schools, and students and their parents.

But to just focus on the California politics angle, the Vergara effect could also be immense.

From now on a litmus test for every Latino politician is whether they agree with Judge Rolf M. Treu’s comparison of California’s public school system with the formally racist segregated school systems that existed in much of America before the 1954 Brown vs. Board of Education ruling.

Will Latino pols stand up for Jim Crow Lite?

Treu goes farther than even Latino reformers like Gloria Romero in depicting the fight over teacher tenure and teacher union power in a starkly racial fashion.

I look forward to seeing how John Perez, Hilda Solis, Lorena Gonzalez, Juan Vargas, Xavier Becerra, Joe Baca, Loretta Sanchez, Linda Sanchez, Tony Cardena, Gloria Negrete McLeod, Raul Ruiz, etc., react to Vergara.

This is not a question they can finesse.

Do they want to keep an education system that the judge called functionally anti-Latino so as to stay on the CTA’s and the CFT’s good side?

Or do they want to blow up the Jim Crow Lite system the unions have built for poor Latino students?

We shall see. I will set up Nexus alerts to keep tabs on what these pols are saying — and to see if California’s Democrats have a cleansing civil war that will force party members to wrestle with the fact that the CTA and the CFT stand for a lot of things.

But social justice isn’t one of them.

    Not really, Chris. That’s the reason we have appellate courts.

    It’s called the “Donkey curve,” as the RAGWUS steals more and more and the pie becomes smaller and smaller the feeders will turn on the weaker public unions in an effort to keep their share of the trough full. The cops and FF’s see the schools as the first victim, then the cops will turn on the FF’s, because the people with the guns will dictate who gets what’s left. 🙂

        Ntheoc, you are living in a fantasy version of reality, the state is broke, you will realize it when your checks are no longer valid. The people will not be your slaves. 🙂

          The state is not broke! People were telling my old man the same thing 30 to 35 years of his career to, and guess what? Yep, the checks never stopped coming and still today those retirement checks are never a day late. Stop with the Doomer talk already and get on like the rest of Californians are doing, and they are doing great in this BOOMING economy!!!!

            Oh yes it is broke ntheoc, only they use smoke and mirrors along with legal means to hide the fact from fools like you. Where do you think the $2 trillion bucks is going to come from with the taxpayers leaving the state? That’s right you don’t know because you are uninformed my love. 🙂
