'ALL THE THINGS': Teachers union pres Becky Pringle goes on unhinged rant at annual convention

She wailed, flailed her hands, and screamed about how the NEA must "win all the things."

National Education Association President Becky Pringle appeared unhinged as she gave remarks at the annual convention of the largest union in the US, representing teachers across the country. She wailed, flailed her hands, and screamed about how the NEA must "win all the things." 

"We are the ones who hold steadfast to the belief of the plausibility of the possible," she said, uttering a phrase without any substance. "We are the heirs of all who did this work before us. We must keep doing! NEA delegates: we can do this work. We must do this. We get to do this work. We will do this work, because our students are depending on us!" She said, pounding on the podium.

"To win all the things! NEA we have to win all the things! All the things! All the things! Our colleagues are depending on us to win all the things! Keep going NEA, to preserve our democracy, we must win all the things! Delegates, we won't go back! We will keep going forward! Because we are the NEA! We are the NEA! We are the NEA and that's what we do. Thank you NEA, thank you I love you."

So what are "all the things"? In her keynote address to the NEA Representative Assembly, Pringle celebrated the accomplishments of the union in what the union called a "rousing" address to the nearly 7,000 delegates in attendance. Pringle objected to the Supreme Court, which she said "continues to render decisions that attack, diminish, and disregard the needs and lived experiences of far too many Americans." 

She called for the strengthening of public education "so it is a just system designed around the joy of teaching; a system with a deep sense of community and shared responsibility; a system where high expectations are matched with plentiful resources and supports." She went on to say "We will fight privatization, vouchers, and any other scheme to drain resources from our public schools.  Every day, we will demand that every school consistently has the equitable funding and the resources they need so that every student in every community has the support and opportunities they need to take their rightful places in the world."

And Pringle praised activists who came before her, including Harvey Milk and others, who she said have their work continued and furthered by the teachers union. All of that, she said, means that Joe Biden and Kamala Harris must be re-elected for a second White House term. She said that they have been "pro-childcare; pro-diversity, equity, and inclusion; pro-universal meals; pro-voting rights; pro-schools free of gun violence; pro-racial and social justice friends who have been the strongest champions of public education, of educators, and of the labor movement in the history of our nation."

Soulds like she is taking talking-points from Kamala.
