Rebecca Friedrichs was a public school teacher for 28-years. She was forced to pay dues to unions with radical policies that actually degraded her profession, our schools and our national character. She filed a lawsuit against the California Teachers Association seeking to free teachers from forced union membership and mandatory dues. The case went before the supreme court in 2016. Although not decided due to Justice Scalia’s untimely death, the case blazed the trail for later cases that ended forced unionism for teachers and government employees. Rebecca wrote Standing Up To Goliath, is a Prager University host, and foundered For Kids and Country, a national movement of teachers and citizens uniting to restore our schools and culture.
In the interview Ron and and Rebecca discuss examples from her book that illustrate the well-planned communist infiltration of our schools. Rebecca describes how the far left controls the unions, the unions control and intimidate teachers and administrators, and teachers are forced to indoctrinate students who then take their well seated liberal ideas out into society. The discussion continues to describe how unions use fear tactics and intimidation to force teachers to support them and comply with their ideological agenda, including sexualizing children at extremely early ages and instilling the marxist tenets of critical race theory. Rebecca points out an interesting statistic that the majority of teachers lean toward conservative ideals, so the radical leftist union agenda does not actually represent the values and thoughts of most teachers. Near the end they discuss how critical theorists exploit minority populations to divide and conquer a society.
