I Hope Gov. Christie Has Good Police Protection

The rhetoric is heating up to proportions not seen in this state since I've been paying attention and save for a decade in California, that's 25-years:

HADDONFIELD, N.J. — They're the kind of obscenity-laced schoolyard taunts that could get a student suspended.

But the target of this tirade is New Jersey's Gov. Chris Christie — and the perpetrators are the state's teachers, irate over his calls for salary freezes and funding cuts for schools.

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.

The rhetoric has become ever more heated as residents of most of the state's school districts get ready to vote Tuesday on property tax levies that support district budgets. And while many of the postings are emotional, most aren't personal attacks.
Yeah, just like the made up attacks are described as not "personal" by the AP, right?
If the Tea Partiers were on record saying anything close to this, the media would be screaming worse than they are and Bill Clinton would maybe have a point. But they aren't and the largely Democratic teachers--the ones who teach my children mind you--are saying things like this.

This is incitement plain and simple; incitement to violence that will lead to someone trying to harm the governor. The man is doing all he can to save a state that has been raped fiscally and run into the ground by McGreevey and Corzine in ways that would make Pelosi and Obama stand gaping in awe.

New Jersey teachers have gotten everything they've wanted from state government that fears them. Now they face a man who will not back down and will not bend over for them as the others have (no pun intended with regard to McGreevey).

Here's a taste of the venom these people are spewing.

As an aside; I live in this state and pay $10,000 a year in property taxes. I need some relief from that and these people want more, more, more. Sorry, I don't have it and neither do most other people. The teachers unions are spreading lie after lie in the hopes that people will buy it. Some will but most--especially us who are taxed to death--will not.

God help us if the local budgets get shot down today.
