The North Carolina Association of Educators is showing its true (Red) colors by using communist logos in promoting a May Day strike, which is also communist-inspired, says Pete Kaliner of News Radio 570.
Kaliner posted an investigative report on the topic on Monday.
He said the association has long said it is not a union and is not operated by “leftists.”
But the upcoming May 1st demonstration leaves little doubt who is running that organization.
Kaliner referenced Twitter posts with photos showing the group using a logo of a red fist, such as this one by The Chad Adams Show:“It’s one thing for folks to THINK you’re a communist organization, quite another when you adopt a communist symbol to represent your group. BAD CHOICE of the week @ncae for choosing Soviet Era CCCP logo as theirs! @TimBoyumTV @wuzzardo @RaleighReporter @TravisFain @PeteKaliner”

Kaliner also quoted Longleaf Politics, which reports on the strike and the fist logo:
Perhaps the N.C. Association of Educators does not have any history teachers in their midst. The clenched-fist emblem was first used by communist factions during the Spanish civil war, and later adopted in the Soviet Union.
The logo’s adoption is the latest sign that the NCAE’s opposition to the General Assembly is rooted in something deeper than education policy.
It is also no coincidence that the 2019 teachers’ rally is scheduled for May 1, also known as May Day. The date is widely recognized among communist and anarchist groups as International Workers’ Day.
The school union is no stranger to using red as a symbol.
EdNC reported that last year, teachers gathered for a rally in Raleigh with at least 40 districts canceling classes as teachers dressed in red shirts and bearing signs called for better pay.
