Terrific: Tax-subsidized ACORN mob teams up with L.A. teachers

As if ACORN’s shakedown artists and thugs weren’t causing enough trouble, now they’re occupying public school board meeting rooms to prevent government educators from cutting costs, firing useless teachers, and dealing with financial realities.

This is now the second “civil disobedience” campaign waged by the entitlement-mongers.

Our Community Organizer-in-Chief, who spoke so voluminously yesterday about education reform, was unavailable for comment…

A school board meeting turned into a display of civil disobedience Tuesday as about 50 educators refused to leave, creating a brief standoff with police, who refused to make any arrests in the presence of media.

The members of ACORN and United Teachers Los Angeles — all wearing bright red shirts — entered the Los Angeles Unified School District Board of Education meeting on Tuesday afternoon, sat down and began chanting.

Police said the protesters were staging an illegal occupation of a public building. The district said no arrests would occur as long as members of media were in building.

UTLA President A.J. Duffy approached the speakers’ lectern and told the board, “You know why we’re here. You know I’m not leaving this rostrum. You know I’m going to keep talking.”

As he spoke several teachers sat on the floor in front of the board and held up signs saying “Students lose when we lose teachers, No layoffs” as the crowd began chanting.

Board President Monica Garcia repeatedly asked Duffy to sit down, but he kept speaking. The microphone was turned off, but Duffy continued to speak and the chanting continued. Garcia then announced that the “disturbance has interrupted our meeting to the point where the orderly conduct of this meeting is not feasible.”
