Transcript for Rebecca Friedrichs speaks at 2020 RNC
Hi Rebecca free kicks a veteran California public school educator. I'm here to give voice to America's great teachers because our voices have been silenced for decades. By unions who claim to represent tests. They do not. When other dedicated teachers and I served within the unions we spoke up in defense of children. Parents scientific fact and American values. For our trouble we were brutalized. Booed off the platform. Barred from committees. Shouted down and even spit upon by union leaders. This is how unions treat devoted teachers. But what's even worse is how their agenda of control deceived Americans. And her children. They intentionally re written American history to perpetuate division. Pervert the memories of our American founders. And disparage our Judeo Christian virtues. They're lenient discipline policies more star schools into war zones. And they back. Unions collect billions annually from unsuspecting teachers and push this radical agenda into our classrooms. Against our will. Why. The only way to keep a free republic is with a well educated moral citizenry. That can self govern. Unions are subverting our republic. So they undermine educational excellence morality. Law and order. That's why they spend hundreds of millions annually to defeat charter schools and school choice. Trappings so many precious low income children in dangerous corrupt and low performing schools. To fight back on behalf of children an America. Brave teachers brought a lawsuit against unions. And do you know who intervened against us. The Obama Biden administration. And California attorney general Kamal a Harris. They argued against us at the US Supreme Court. Their comrades labeled us spawns of Satan. And standardized. In mainstream media. No matter their abuse will keep fighting for the country and children we love just like president trump. He's breaking the union's grip on our schools that's why unions have tried to destroy him since the day he was elected. But president trump isn't afraid to fight for what's right he won't back down. His courage gives great teachers renewed hope. He's even proposed education freedom scholarships to return control to parents. Protect religious liberties and empower kids to escape dangerous low performing schools. The Republican platform supports. Educational freedom and the Democrat party. Does not. Democrats stand with deceptive teachers' unions who pick on loving teachers and little kids. President trump stands with America's families great teachers and most importantly. Our children. So America's great teachers. Let stand with president trump in protection of the kids and country we love.
