The Examiner's Mark Hemingway points the way to this story of New Jersey teachers bullying zaftig Gov. Chris Christie via Facebook:
In Facebook messages visible to the world — not to mention their students — the teachers have called Christie fat, compared him to a genocidal dictator and wished he was dead. The postings are often riddled with bad grammar and misspellings.
"Never trust a fat f…," read one profane post on the Facebook page, "New Jersey Teachers United Against Governor Chris Christie's Pay Freeze," which has some 69,000 fans, many of them teachers.
"How do you spell A– hole? C-H-R-I-S C-H-R-I-S-T-I-E," read another….
One educator, a librarian with a Master's degree, described the cuts as "rediculous."
Another pointed out that Christie's late mother was a member of the teachers union: "It's not right to bite the hand that feeds you. Oh I forgot it's Chirs Christie, He's so large I bet he'd bite anything that's put in front of his face!"
"Remember Pol Pot, dictator of Cambodia?" warned another. "He reigned in terror, his target was teachers and intellectuals. They were either killed or put into forced labor… King Kris Kristy is headed in this direction."
Christie's crime, needless to say, is not being fat, but trying to put the Garden State's disastrous budget on a diet. While facing a $10 billion deficit, Christie has called for slashing schools funds and asking teachers to freeze wages (freeze, not cut) for one whole year.
In the midst of all the anger, let us remember a gentler time, when teachers didn't just hate, but took us all "from crayons to perfume." Take it away, Lulu:
