WASHINGTON, D.C. — Randi Weingarten, the radical Leftist head of the American Federation of Teachers, has been appointed to serve on a Department of Homeland Security advisory council, according to the agency’s statement released on Wednesday.

DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas announced Weingarten as a new member of the Homeland Security Academic Partnership Council (HSAPC), which “will provide strategic and actionable recommendations to the Secretary on campus safety and security, improved coordination, research priorities, hiring, and more.”

The HSAPC was reconstituted by Mayorkas in 2022 and has been tasked with a broad mandate, which includes an intelligence-related component to improve “coordination and sharing of actionable threat and security-related information” as well as “terrorism prevention.”

What is perhaps equally chilling to everyday Americans – taking into account the weaponization of government agencies against conservatives over recent years – is that the council also will provide advice to Mayorkas on the recruitment of new DHS employees “to support a 21st century DHS workforce.”

At a press conference on Thursday morning, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis said that Randi Weingarten played one of the most damaging roles during the COVID pandemic, trying to prevent the reopening of schools for as long as possible.

“Who are some of these people actually fighting for? They’re not fighting for parents. They’re actually opposing parents’ rights,” Ron DeSantis said.

“She should not be in any position of authority. Maybe someone will have something to say about this in about a year and a half,” the governor added.
