Comparing the Teacher’s Union to the NRA Is Probably Not a Good Idea

January 8, 2013 | Bucky Turco

Last week on his radio show, while channeling his inner Republican, Mayor Bloomberg said something really dumb and compared the United Federation of Teachers union to the NRA, because these two polar opposite groups clearly have a lot in common… to him. In lieu of his continued vilification of teachers campaign and the recent Sandy Hook school shootings, these remarks didn’t go over too well. Although Blooomberg has tried to explain what he really meant, educators, unions representatives and elected officials are demanding an apology and took to the steps of City Hall on Monday to voice their unhappiness with an out of touch billionaire comparing them to the nation’s most influential and organized group of assholes.
