Last week, The Blaze brought you exclusive footage of renowned Union organizer Steven Lerner asking college students to be arrested for leftist causes. This week, The Blaze brings you video of Lerner at the same Georgetown event, retelling his labor version of the story of Exodus. Exodus, meaning ‚Äúgoing out‚ÄĚ in Hebrew, tells how the children of Israel leave slavery in Egypt through the strength of God. They were being led by God‚Äôs messenger, the prophet Moses.
Lerner began his retelling of the Israelite Exodus by calling it ‚Äúthe first great strike in history‚Äú:
‚ÄúSo, anybody here celebrate Passover recently? Anybody? So, we had the first great strike in history was, what? When Moses and the Israelites, they said, ‚ÄėPharaoh‚Äôs not treating me well.‚Äô Did they send him emails and, like, put on a little tablet ‚ÄėPlease be nice,‚Äô and sign a petition? ‚Ä¶ They went on strike, right?‚ÄĚ...
Mr. Lerner, in my opinion, seems somehow disrespectful in using the story of Moses and the Isreal Exodus event as an example. This was a wonderful display of the Hand of God! But a typical union strike happens all the time--nothing awesome about that. If people are unhappy about job conditions, there will eventually be conflict and some sort of rebellious activity anyway--which is good. Lerner talked confusing and it was not humorous at all.
