Liberal County Commissioner: NPRI employee is 'Evil ! Very Evil !'
Want to know when you’re making a difference? When politicians, like liberal Clark County Commissioner Tom Collins, start attacking you with tweets like this:
The Victor “Jokes” he’s referring to is NPRI’s communications director, Victor Joecks, and the article he’s referencing detailed NPRI’s campaign to let Nevada teachers know they could opt out of the teachers union.
It is outrageous and pathetic that a powerful politician would personally attack an NPRI employee as “Evil ! Very Evil !” — but we won’t be backing down in the face of Collins’ intimidation tactics.
It’s also pretty embarrassing that “Evil ! Very Evil !” is the best argument that Collins could spit out. I think that’s quite telling.
In the mind of a far-left politician, empowering teachers by letting them know they can opt out of union membership is “Evil ! Very Evil !”
Apparently, Collins would prefer that teachers keep sending union bosses over $750 a year so they can take home more than $625,000 a year, like a former CCEA official did. Or that teachers give $750 a year to an organization that may directly oppose their political or religious values.
We think teachers should be able to make the decision that’s best for them.
We aren’t backing down, and chipping in $5 right now will help us keep standing strong.
P.S. Commissioner Collins has attacked NPRI — in a personal and pathetic way. And nothing would make that liberal politician more upset than you contributing $5 right now to help NPRI continue our “Evil ! Very Evil !” campaign.
