N.J. Teachers Union Prays for Gov. Christie’s Death; We Now Return You To Our Regularly Scheduled Reporting of Right-Wing Hatred

If conservatives weren’t so hateful, the left wouldn’t be forced to resort to things like this:

Bergen County representatives of the state teachers union have ratcheted up the campaign against Governor Christie’s agenda in a fiery memo that encourages members to “get some dirt” and “go public,” and adds the education commissioner to the “attack list.” But it’s the memo’s closing “prayer” that is sure to ignite controversy:

“Dear Lord … this year you have taken away my favorite actor, Patrick Swayze, my favorite actress, Farrah Fawcett, my favorite singer, Michael Jackson, and my favorite salesman, Billy Mays. … I just wanted to let you know that Chris Christie is my favorite governor.”

The memo, sent to locals in the county earlier this week and obtained by The Record on Thursday, is signed by New Jersey Education Association field representatives, including Joe Coppola, president of the Bergen County Education Association.

Can you believe it? This is unconscionable — prayer in the public educational system? If anybody gets fired, that’ll be the reason. Wanting the governor to be dead? Well, that’s what he gets for being a hateful conservative.

The teachers union says it was “a joke” — and if you’ve seen some of the curriculum in public education these days, I don’t doubt it — jokes are what they do best.
