REPORT: Texas Rep Hugh Shine (R) voted against school choice, is endorsed by Randi Weingarten's AFT, and receives funding from teacher's unions
We found another Texas representative with wokeness in his school district who is a stunning hypocrite. We already reported that Travis Clardy has porn books in his district, voted against school choice, is funded by teacher’s unions and ultimately sent his kids to private school.
Now we want to introduce you to Rep. Hugh Shine. Shine is endorsed by Randi Weingarten through the Texas AFT as well as a branch of Becky Pringle’s union the NEA. Both Unions have been completely taken by wokeness, advocated for school closures, promote teaching about LGBTQ propaganda, and encourage porn in schools.
Shine was one of the Republicans who voted against school choice in Texas.
Let’s dive into some of the schools that Rep. Shine represents. He is endorsed by the Texas AFT and is the representative of District 55 in Texas. This district serves nearly two hundred thousand children, and he doesn’t want a single one of them to have a choice.
The schools in his district have books like “Fun Home” where a self proclaimed lesbian terrorist performs oral sex on someone.
Libs of TikTok is a reader-supported publication. To receive new posts and support my work, consider becoming a free or paid subscriber.
“Flamer” is another book in his district and contains graphic depictions of sex and discusses viewing porn and masturbation. This book is available to children as young as 11 in his district and he doesn’t want those children to be able to go to a safe school, a school that doesn’t try and indoctrinate children that is free of sexually explicit books.
He has also received $7,500 in campaign donations from anti school choice groups like the Charles Butt Public Education Political Action Committee. This organization advocates for government-run schooling which is as we all know, indoctrinates kids with CRT, gender ideology and has insane failure rates.
Shine also received $2,500 from the TSTA, a branch of the super woke NEA.
And lastly, his daughter reportedly went to private school (We will not share the school to protect her privacy.) Why is Representative Shine so against school choice? Could it be the donations? The endorsements? The feeling of power to make decisions and control others? There isn’t a sensible reason to decline parents' choice. He is just another state representative who adheres to the rules for thee, not me stigma plaguing this country.
Rep. Shine has not responded to our request for comment.
