Republicans Against Teachers’ Unions? Quite Hypocritical.

Recently, I had a conversation with a self-proclaimed conservative Republican about teachers’ unions and his stance against them. His overarching idea against these unions was he didn’t want his money (tax dollars) funding organizations that countered his political beliefs. His argument wasn’t completely against unions as a concept, just in cases of the publicly funded ones, e.g. teachers’ unions. He also made cases about how individuals should “stand on their own merit” when it came to wages and promotions; about how workplace safety was now protected under OSHA and therefore unions were now obsolete.

This is all, of course, complete balderdash filled with hypocrisy and conservative rhetoric.  Let me explain how deep this rabbit-hole fallacy goes.
