They hate teachers too

They hate teachers too

I don't think I will ever get over the fact that a large number of American adults have come to despise public school teachers. That tweet above is just some dude. But I've seen this sentiment expressed in different ways all over the internet. The right sees teachers as the enemy. Of course the profession is 70% women so I suppose this makes sense.

Who are these people? I've been around right wingers my whole life but even the wingnuttiest among them never called for knee-capping and cracking the heads of school teachers.

Something has gone very wrong. Very, very wrong.

That something? Hate radio, white nationalist propaganda and Fox News.
