Powerful teachers union head Randi Weingarten has not been having the best time of it on Twitter recently.
Weingarten has become a frequent target of the platform’s community notes feature thanks to repeatedly sharing misinformation.
One of the more incredible examples was Weingarten’s promotion of PolitiFact’s politically motivated “fact check” defending her role in helping keep schools closed.

After years of teachers unions ensuring children would be masked and forced into remote learning, Weingarten has been desperately trying to rewrite history.
Most frequently, this means downplaying her role in catastrophic learning loss for young children.
Now she’s at it again, but this time revealing her own ideologically biased hypocrisy.
Weingarten announced Tuesday that her union was partnering with a company that scans old social media posts to avoid cancel culture.
The exact cancel culture that her left wing ideology weaponizes to punish people for things they said years or even decades ago.
As one writer pointed out, this feature could be useful for teachers who openly campaigned for progressive causes. Or took vacations while claiming to be too scared to return to classrooms.
Randi Weingarten Now Scared Of Cancel Culture?
Of course Weingarten would partner an app that erases old posts. Of course she would.
Few people on the internet have repeatedly tweeted more absurd, nonsensical things than Randi. Her mistakes and outright misrepresentations have become so prolific and commonplace, she’s often forced to lock replies to avoid being called out.
She once claimed that Ron DeSantis would kill “millions” of people in Florida with his COVID policies. Weingarten did eventually walk that absurdity back, but it’s representative of the many outrageous things she says on a daily basis.
But the most revealing part of this partnership is that she wants to protect teachers (and herself) from the problem her party created.
Democrats and the left have weaponized old social media posts to an absurd degree. Now she wants to help teachers avoid the consequences their ideology helped start.
It’s a near certainty this is the result of accounts like Libs of TikTok, who have used teachers’ own words to show how children are indoctrinated in schools.
Randi Weingarten, who is openly supportive of such efforts, undoubtedly wants to make it easier to hide those kinds of comments from parents.
She’s emblematic of the left’s repetitive M.O. Set the rules and ensure you never have to play by them.

She is, without a doubt, a worthless disgusting piece of crap. I honestly wish her nothing but bad fortune. She number of kids lives she ruined via her union is incalculable.
I was hoping she got “blasted”
She is the embodiment of the progressive Democrat. A shameless liar who will do anything she can to push the party’s agenda, even when it contradicts what she was pushing only a year ago, all the while claiming she is and always has been correct, while all of the dissenters (who live in reality) are racist, bigoted, violent terrorists trying to tear down democracy.
Weingarten pushed BLM riots, CRT, locking schools down, mandatory vaccinations, said opening schools would “kill thousands,” all while riding her high horse. Now she is hiring a firm to help erase the receipts. Sorry, Randi, your love of the spotlight is what is doing you in. And you deserve all of it.
