Mission America head Linda Harvey encouraged Ohio Republicans to push anti-union right-to-work legislation on her radio bulletin today, and like always linked it back to her zealous anti-gay activism. Harvey maintained that Religious Right supporters should rally behind so-called right-to-work efforts because “unions support all aspects of pro-abortion and pro-homosexual activism and have no problem truly with students opting for these life-altering practices” and promote “politically correct agendas.” She went on to falsely assert that without such laws workers are forced to join labor unions and also made the discredited claim that unions can compel non-members to pay for political activities.
Now you might be thinking, why does Mission America care? Here’s why: the leftists in this country and all their destructive anti-family policies have been propped up by the funding of both private and public employee unions. You may have heard me talk about teachers unions like the National Education Association or here in Ohio, the Ohio Education Association. The NEA and OEA are largely responsible for the left-wing tilt of our public schools and the politically correct agendas that now dominate school room lessons. These unions support all aspects of pro-abortion and pro-homosexual activism and have no problem truly with students opting for these life-altering practices. Actively opposing more traditional viewpoints, the teachers unions generously support Democrats running for President and Congress while contributing very little to Republican or more conservative candidates. So if we want to get our country back a good place to start is where the left is getting its money, and it’s often from labor union members who had no choice to contribute to that candidate or issue.
