There’s no end in sight to the Oklahoma teachers strike…
Protesters at the Oklahoma Capitol chanted “Where’s my car” after Gov. Mary Fallin compared teachers to a “teenage kid that wants a better car.”
Mary Fallin signed a measure giving teachers a $6,100 pay raise and then compared their demand for more education funding to “a teenage kid that wants a better car.”
As well as writing off the teachers’ demands as childish, Governor Fallin also reportedly suggested that anti-fascist group Antifa was involved in the ongoing teachers’ protests, claiming it was among the “outside groups” that were demonstrating alongside educators.
Talked w/Ok Gov Mary Fallin about #oklahomateachersstrike. She mentioned “outside” groups w/teachers at Capitol. I said yes…NEA and WV teacher union leaders.
“And ANTIFA”, she added.
Did y’all see ANTIFA at the Statehouse?
