Bergen County, NJ Teachers Union’s Memo … Death Threat Against Republican Gov. Christie


So much for the Tea Party folks making threats against politicians. How about this memo from the Bergen County, New Jersey Teachers Union President Joseph Coppola  that made a death threat and wished the elected Governor Chris Christie dead.

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s take-no-prisoners demand for education cuts got him a whole lot more than he bargained for — a death wish.

It was in a controversial e-mail sent by the Bergen County Teachers Union to its members asking that Christie be “taken” by the Lord.

In seven years as the Garden State’s pugnacious U.S. Attorney, Christie got only two death threats — from the bloods and the crips.

It took only three months as governor for an adversary to wish him six feet under.

“To have the leader of the Bergen County Teachers Union send out an e-mail to their 17,000 members asking them to pray for my death I think just goes beyond the pale,” Christie said.

Here is the email from the NJ Teachers Union threatening violence and wishing the NJ Governor Christie dead.

“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.”

NICE, no wonder our children struggle to be educated, but have become more violent.  Imagine the air play this story would have received in the MSM if it were a Tea Party memmer sending this email to Nancy Pelosi or Harry Reid?

      This stuff only counts if its a Democrat in office, Right!
      SM: Nope. However, Democrats and their state run media have made it a cottage industry to smear the dissenting We the People as racists at all cost. They fear the Tea Party, and they should, and want to brand them as racists and claim they are the only one who make death threats.

      How come this story has not been covered by national MSM?

      These people make their living from public schools, but they don’t seem to care about the people, just their agenda. It is time for the Governor to declare that public unions are a threat to the school systems of the state and to take steps to remove them.
