"Look, Al Qaeda, they could bring in a nuke into this country and kill 100,000 people with a well-placed nuke somewhere. Ok. We would recover from that. It would be a terrible tragedy, but the teachers unions in this country can destroy a generation."

Last night on Fox News’s Hannity and Colmes, right-wing radio host Neal Boortz claimed that teachers unions are “destroying a generation” and are “much more dangerous than al Qaeda.” He stated, “Look, Al Qaeda, they could bring in a nuke into this country and kill 100,000 people with a well-placed nuke somewhere. Ok. We would recover from that. It would be a terrible tragedy, but the teachers unions in this country can destroy a generation.” Sean Hannity agreed, noting, “They are ruining our school system.”

The National Education Association, the nation’s largest teachers union, represents more than 2.7 million of America’s teachers and educators. In 2004, then Secretary of Education Rod Paige similarly called the NEA a “terrorist organization.” NEA responded to Paige’s remarks, saying it is “morally repugnant to equate those who teach America’s children with terrorists.”

Boortz also called to abolish the Department of Education and in the past, charged that public schools are “brainwashing” American children. Contact Boortz about his comments HERE.

Transcript:

SEAN HANNITY: Alright, let me ask you. Because, you — when you said about the Department of Education — you want to abolish it — when you said that the teachers unions is more dangerous to this country in the long term –

NEAL BOORTZ: In the long term, yeah.

HANNITY: Than al Qaeda.

BOORTZ: Right. Look, Al Qaeda, they could bring in a nuke into this country and kill 100,000 people with a well-placed nuke somewhere. Ok. We would recover from that. It would be a terrible tragedy, but the teachers unions in this country can destroy a generation.

HANNITY: They are.

BOORTZ: Well, they are destroying a generation.

HANNITY: They are ruining our school system.

BOORTZ: They’re much more dangerous. We worry about al Qaeda and we should. But at the same time let’s not let the teachers union skate.

HANNITY: They destroyed our school system, and we don’t do anything. The parents — why there aren’t people rising up against it is unbelievable.

I would like to kick the crap out of what-ever school system graduated these nut-puppies!
Also, I would like to know why all these NeoCONs keep claiming terrorists could bring a nuclear bomb INTO this country? Surely EVERY airport is equiped with a basic Geiger Counter??? Now getting the basic dirty bomb ingredients IN America might be Lots Easier, since NeoCONs have access that "normal people" don't...

WTH? The teachers in my kid's school district have been working without a contract since last year! You have to take your hat off to anyone who could tolerate 36 4th graders and keep their sanity. They should be paid much more than they are. I believe and support free speech, but have a hard time with stupidity.
