Members of the United Teachers Los Angeles Union are continuing to hold education hostage for higher pay and increased staffing, and they’re getting a lot of help from their socialist and communist allies.

Pictures and videos posted to Twitter show Democrat Socialists of America – Los Angeles are aiding and abetting the teachers strike in a variety of ways, from heckling the “scabs” that dare defy the union to keep schools open to sponsored taco lunches to show solidarity with their union brethren.

“NO SCABS ALLOWED IN UNION TOWN,” DSA Los Angles posted to Twitter Tuesday, along with a video of a red mob of protestors blocking a parking garage and screaming at cars to “turn-around.”

“We say no to scabs because we care more about our children’s futures than a sub making them watch movies all day,” DSA Los Angeles wrote.

The account posted other pictures from the picket lines, as well.

“Our Valley contingent holding it down at North Hollywood High,” one post read.

It included several socialists toting a banner that read “Socialists for Public Education, We Stand With LA Teachers!”

The same banner was on display in a different video that showed hordes of union educators descending on a black car attempting to enter a parking garage – presumably one of the substitutes hired by the Los Angeles Unified School District to perform the work striking teachers refuse to do.

The mob of misfits jumped, whooped and hollered when the rowdy and threatening behavior convinced the driver to flee the scene.

“That is my neighborhood,” Jesse Sanchez wrote. “That’s RFK high on Catalina and 8th.”

All of the yelling gets tiring, so the DSA Los Angeles, in partnership with the International Socialist Organization and “California Educators Rising,” launched a GoFundMe page to pay for “Tacos for Teachers!”

The page has already raised more than $27,000, and exceeded its goal by $12,000, with nearly 1,000 donations in the last 12 days.

“There are many ways you can help out. Solidarity on the picket lines is always appreciated. But if you cannot be there in person, you can give the gift of tacos,” Steve Ducey posted to Twitter. “As long as the #UTLAStrike continues we’ll keep accepting donations to feed the teachers.”

But the socialists aren’t the only ones out in force with UTLA – California’s communists are also locking arms in the streets.

Communist Party USA offered its support in a prepared statement of solidarity on Monday.

“The CPUSA well recalls that in socialist countries a commonly heard expression is, ‘There is only one privileged class of people here: Children,’” the communists wrote. “Los Angeles today is a testing ground for society to determine just how much of a priority it places on a full and rich education for its people as an investment in its future.”

The comments fall directly in line with UTLA leadership, which has convinced its members that the fate of public education is riding on the results of the ongoing strike.

“We are in a fight for the soul of public education,” UTLA President Alex Caputo-Pearl told teachers Monday.
