Deafening Silence from the Main Stream Media as N.J. Teachers Union Memo/Prayer Hints at Governor Christie's Death

by the Left Coast Rebel

According to the insistent, constant, meme in the press, the Tea Party movement is inciting violence across the nation. Although many of the instances that they point to are inaccurate, if not simply untrue; the provable threats against conservative lawmakers are met with deafening silence. Case in point, New Jersey's new Governor Chris Christie, fresh off making tough decisions towards fiscal solvency for his state has been threatened. Unsurprisingly, the powerful leftist teachers union lobby is out to get him, perhaps literally:

(AP) HACKENSACK, N.J. — New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie isn't laughing about a teachers union's memo that jokes about his death.

The memo is the latest salvo in a war of words between Christie and the union over wage and benefits concessions.

The Record of Bergen County obtained the Bergen County Education Association memo. It includes a closing prayer that reads:

"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."

Association president Joe Coppola says it was a joke and was never meant to be made public.

Christie spokesman Michael Drewniak calls it unprofessional.

Via., I grabbed a screenshot of the memo. Go here for the pdf document:

Don't mess with a former D.A.? Christie shows the kind of tough spirit that we should all have when confronting leftist thugs, via NorthJersey:

Christie said he was aware of Keshishian’s statement of apology. He said he didn’t view the joke as a threat, but rather a wish.

"They have finally lifted their veil," said the governor of the NJEA. "I don’t think this is a threat. I think it’s a wish. A wish in some ways might be more perverse than a threat."

Can you imagine that this story has garnered the attention of 4 bloggers at Memeorandum? Hot Air, The Lonely Conservative, Redstate and Protein Wisdom seem to be the only ones interested in this story. I wonder why the leftists are ignoring it? Like I said, the liberal media/government complex- silence is deafening.


  1. No surprise he is a teaches union thug

  2. Hey, wonder what would happen if a tea partyer made the same prayer with Obama? I wouldn't want the Secret Service breaking down my door (and I bet it would be charged as a hate crime as well).
